Arthritis is an illness that causes pain and swelling in
joints. Joints may become severely damaged over time. Some types of this
joint disease can cause damage to other organs as well. There are two
types of the disease. The rheumatoid strain seems to be caused from the
body's immune system malfunctioning. Osteoarthritis is the most common
form of this joint disease and usually comes with age or after injury.
Some of the symptoms of this disease include fever, weight loss, rash,
and trouble breathing. Medicine is often prescribed to help with pain,
stiffness, and inflammation. Alternative medicine may promote the use of
magnetic jewelry for arthritis relief. Keeping weight down, and
exercising may help with symptoms associated with the illness.
Magnetic Jewelry for Arthritis
may bring relief from the pain of arthritis, which can be a chronic or
intermittent problem for sufferers of this disease. Some studies have
shown positive results using magnetic pieces. Many sites online sell
magnetic jewelry that is attractive. These jewelry items seem to help
joint pain and provide relief when worn. How could magnets possibly help
pain? Magnets produce energy and possess polarity. Most magnets that
are marketed to relieve pain are permanent and don't change. Some of the
products that are marketed include bandages, belts, shoe inserts,
mattress pads and pillows, among others. Some magnetic jewelry for
arthritis relief products that are marketed include bracelets,
necklaces, and rings.
Wearing magnetic jewelry for arthritis relief may prove
additionally beneficial when used along with other therapies. Other
positive changes that may prove beneficial is monitoring one's diet and
making moderate changes. Some physician's suggest eating more fish or
taking fish oil tablets. Other suggestions to help with symptoms of
this disease include getting plenty of Vitamin C. Some studies suggest
that cutting down on dairy foods will help sufferers. Carrot juice,
celery juice, cabbage juice, and tomato juice may also be beneficial to
those who suffer from joint pain. Monitoring one's diet will reveal what
foods make a person feel better and which ones make a person feel
worse. One may want to try eliminating some foods and then slowly adding
them back into the diet to see what effect they have. Magnetic jewelry
for arthritis might be something to consider along with diet to provide
positive effects against pain.
