Joint pain often results from a bacterial, viral, or fungal infection. The pain can be a single joint or multiple joints. The pain can also vary from acute to chronic. If you are dealing with chronic joint pain, consider a natural approach to treating the cause. Natural treatment starts with a healthy diet. Naturopathic medicine and treatments allow healing through detoxification, herbal remedies, and exercise.
First, our bodies need the proper nutrition, and proper nutrition comes from eating fresh organic foods. Foods with the highest amount of nutrients are fruits and vegetables. A healthy diet consists of 80% organic fruits and vegetables. Once you begin to supply your body with nutrient dense foods, it is important to avoid toxins. Cleansing the body of toxins must become a part of your everyday routine.
Some environmental toxins are difficult to avoid, but you can choose what to put in your body. Some toxins to avoid are preservatives, trans-fats, GMOs, artificial flavours, processed sugars, and corn syrup. Consider eliminating or minimising the consumption of alcohol and caffeine. Real food is what allows the body to function properly, and you should consider eliminating processed food from your diet.
By eating the proper foods, the body will naturally detoxify itself. Green leafy vegetables contain large amounts of fibre that helps stabilise the microbiome in the intestines, ultimately increasing the good bacteria and reducing bad bacteria. Cilantro, chlorella, spirulina, and garlic help to assemble heavy metals and toxins for removal from the body.
Exercise is a very important part of decreasing joint pain. It helps with muscular strength, bone density, and the immune system. The lymphatic system depends on the movement of the body, so fluids are flushed throughout the body. Take some time out of your day and walk, swim, dance, or participate in some type of physical activity that will allow your bodily fluids to move.
Once the body has received the proper nutrition and exercise, it can start to heal itself. Sometimes you can help the healing process by consuming specific foods or adding supplements to your diet. Many individuals who have suffered from an autoimmune disease have reported a decrease in joint pain after cleansing the intestinal area and maintaining a healthy diet, in addition to eliminating sugar, milk, and gluten.
Increasing your intake of omega-3 fatty acids is also essential. Flax seeds are great sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Joint pain is not a part of the ageing process. Joint pain signifies that something is wrong within the body, particularly an individual's diet. There is a strong link between the intestines and joint pain. By giving your body what it needs, it is very likely that your symptoms of joint pain will diminish, and you will enjoy years of pain-free living.
According to the results of at least 13 studies involving more than 500 participants, people with rheumatoid arthritis who took EFA supplements had a reduction in joint pain – but not in joint damage. Other studies suggest that EFAs may help RA patients lower their dose of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). And according to information from NIH, administering fish oil by IV reduces swollen and tender joints in people with RA.

Devils claw has been proven to be as - if not more - effective as an anti-inflammatory then over the counter medication.

Regular detoxification is always welcome for the body, especially when combined with a balanced healthy diet.
