Dealing with Joint Aches
As we age, we all start to get those little aches and pains in our joints. One day moving around was fine, the next suddenly just getting up out of the chair can hurt. Some doctors would have us believe that the only thing to do is pop anti-inflammatory drugs every day, but that’s not healthy. Why put your body through all of that when there are other things that can be done to help reduce joint pains?
One of the things you can do is rub capsaicin cream on your joints. This cream is made from chili peppers and has been proven to help block the body’s pain transmission signals. It also triggers the release of endorphins that help block pain. However, it can burn a bit when applied, although the burning usually fades pretty quickly.
Another thing that may help people who are overweight is to drop a few pounds. However, because your joints may be tender, it’s important to start off with low-impact exercises. Things like walking, riding a stationary bike, or swimming are great exercises that help let you move your joints without putting a lot of stress on them. Losing some weight will help relieve some of the extra pressure on the joints, too, which will further reduce pain.
You may also want to start taking a supplement that contains graviola. Research has shown that a graviola supplement may be able to provide you with a number of benefits.
