The last thing most of us want to do when we have a chronic ailment like arthritis is take a lot of medications to help with pains which cause other problems that require more medications, which cause more problems that require more medications, which end up declaring a potential arthritic side effect. Goodness gracious! What have we gotten ourselves into? Treating arthritis with unnatural methods will rarely cure the underlying problem. Arthritis is a condition that occurs over time due to an overly acidic body — the blood cannot be acidic for very long without causing harm to the organs, so the body will take alkaline minerals (calcium and magnesium) from the body in order to balance the acidity. Over time, this process leaches from the bones so much that the bones become brittle and weak. By incorporating alkaline foods into the diet we are allowing the minerals to stay in the bones and to actually rebuild them. Here are practices that will help you do this.

Toxins are particularly acidic, and we all harbor them in our bodies. By ridding our body of these acidic substances, naturally we will become more alkaline. Infrared Sauna is a gentle way to bring the body’s temperature up to increase sweating, and uses the same energy as the sun to do so, unlike dry or steam room saunas. Ladies may also notice a reduction in cellulite as a bonus. You can generally find infrared saunas at detox centers or wellness spas, so take a look around, or buy one yourself (they run about $2,000).
Nobody wants to have arthritis, and yet most of us have a hard time making changes in our diets and lifestyle, but you can make changes one step at a time by trying a juice at your local health food store, try a dry sauna at your gym, eat the vegetable crudités and then go from there. Listen to your inner voice and be gentle with your body – medications are not necessary if you work with your body and don’t treat it as something that is malfunctioning as is often done in western societies.
