Joint Pains And 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?
First, you need to exercise more and lose weight. 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 can also rub capsaicin cream on your joints. While it can burn a bit when applied it also triggers the release of endorphins that help block pain. This cream is made from chili peppers and has been proven to help block the body’s pain transmission signals. The burning usually fades pretty quickly, too, so don’t worry about trading one pain for another.
You may also want to start taking an acai berry supplement. Research has shown that a supplement such as the acai berry may be able to provide you with a number of benefits.
