Here’s how I turned things around

First, I made myself a priority. Many may be depending on you, but you have to be in good mental and physical health to be of service to any of them.

I started down my path to fitness by going for slow runs with walk breaks, and I learned how to do push-ups and other strengthening exercises to prevent bone density loss and, therefore, osteoporosis. (Consult your doctor before starting a new exercise regimen.)

CAUSES

Rheumatoid Arthritis Causes arthritis.org
“The cause of RA is not yet fully understood, although doctors do know that an abnormal response of the immune system plays a leading role in the inflammation and joint damage that occurs. No one knows for sure why the immune system goes awry, but there is scientific evidence that genes, hormones and environmental factors are involved…”

“…Potential causes for arthritis may include:

Injury – leading to degenerative arthritis
Abnormal metabolism – leading to gout and pseudogout
Inheritance – such as in osteoarthritis
Infections – such as in the arthritis of Lyme disease
Immune system dysfunction – such as in RA and SLE.

Most types of arthritis are caused by a combination of many factors working together, although some arthritis conditions have no obvious cause and appear to be unpredictable in their emergence.

Causes include injury (leading to degenerative arthritis), abnormal metabolism (such as gout and pseudogout), inheritance (such as in osteoarthritis), infections (such as in the arthritis of Lyme disease), and an overactive immune system (such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus). Treatment programs, when possible, are often directed toward the precise cause of the arthritis…”

A study in BMJ suggested that women who drink moderate amounts of alcohol have a lower risk of rheumatoid arthritis. This one study can’t prove that alcohol prevents arthritis.

9 Natural Remedies for Psoriatic Arthritis by Amanda Gardner health.com
“…When it comes to natural treatments for psoriatic arthritis, there’s not a ton of research. Conventional drugs have been shown to delay damage from the disease, but alternative therapies have not.

“Many of these supplements or vitamins may ease some of the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis, but none have been shown to prevent damage,” says Guy Fiocco, MD, assistant professor of internal medicine at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, in Bryan.

That said, here are nine vitamins or remedies that may be helpful in addition to conventional treatment….

Turmeric

A member of the ginger family, this spice may ease symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. The reasoning seems to be that turmeric has an effect on reducing certain inflammatory proteins, at least in the test tube, explains Dr. Matteson.
..

Vitamin D deficiencies are common in people with psoriatic arthritis, a 2011 study found, but it wasn’t clear why. (Because sun exposure ups the body’s vitamin D, spending time indoors can lead to a deficiency.)

Sal: What are some ways (e.g. walk, biking, yard work, etc..) to absorb the sun? How about winter time? I usually take this Vitamin D supplement-only on days when the sun didn’t come out.

“…Vitamin K

Although vitamin K—which is found in green, leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, and broccoli, as well as canola and olive oils—is important for joint health, it has not been studied in psoriatic arthritis.

However, one report found that low vitamin K levels were associated with more severe osteoarthritis in a group of almost 700 patients.

“..Vitamin B12

Like vitamin D, one study found that vitamin B12 deficiencies were more common in people with psoriatic arthritis than those without it.

But again, like vitamin D, B12 doesn’t seem to be a primary treatment option, says Dr. Fiocco, who is also the director of rheumatology at Scott & White, in Temple, Texas.

Vitamin B12 is found in clams, trout, fortified breakfast cereals, and yogurt…”

Arthri D3
“.. Some of the things that make Arthri-D3® so unique is that it’s an all-natural, well balanced proprietary blend of antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals. It also contains 2000 IUs of Vitamin D3. No other joint health product has this blend including N-Acetyl-Glucosamine and vitamin D3, which studies have shown are extremely important for joint health. .”

How I Healed My Arthritis Naturally fellowshipoftheminds.com

“..Immediately, I stopped eating and drinking everything I was used to and began a bland diet of organic brown rice, organic broccoli, and organic lettuce. For drinking and cooking, I used only distilled water.

Within a week, my pain began to subside, first in my hand and forearm, and then in my shoulder. In two weeks, I felt immensely better and could actually raise my arm over my head, something I had not been able to do for the last three months…

The main key, the primary ingredient, in healing my arthritis naturally was removing allergic foods from my diet, and almost all of these were processed foods. As those foods were eliminated, my pain and stiffness just melted away. Which begs the question……

Finally, if I had to heal my arthritis again, I would pray more. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of documented studies detailing the remarkable effects of prayer on healing. Why buck the evidence? It’s free, it’s easy, and it works…”

10 Anti-Aging Beauty Secrets
Home » News & Facts » 10 Anti-Aging Beauty Secrets

“Here are the top 10 anti-aging beauty secrets.

1. Follow a Good Skin Care Regimen
Irrespective of your age, you need to follow a good skin care regimen for healthy skin. When your skin is healthy, it will not show early signs of aging.

Cleanse your face daily with a gentle cleanser, both in the morning and at night. This will keep your skin clean, soft and free of pore-clogging debris. When buying a cleanser, avoid those with high alcohol content and other drying agents.
Apply a good quality moisturizer over your entire face, neck, hands and legs twice daily. This will help prevent dry and aging skin.
Exfoliate your skin once a week with a gentle facial scrub. This will encourage skin cell renewal, making your skin look younger. It will also help get rid of dead skin cells and keep your skin smooth, healthy, bright and fresh.
2. Choose Skin Care Products Wisely
Many people make the mistake of using the wrong type of skin care products. This can cause tingling, itching, dryness and irritation. It’s easy to rectify or avoid this mistake.

Determine your skin type by analyzing your T-zone area and then choose suitable products to keep it healthy and young. Also, avoid using too many cosmetic products at the same time.
When you are past your mid-20s, use products with retinol, peptides and antioxidants. Retinol promotes an increase of collagen and elastic production. Peptides can stimulate collagen production and cell repair to help you get younger-looking skin. Antioxidants will protect your skin from the sun and speed up the natural skin repair system.
If you have any doubts, you can always consult a dermatologist for help find the right products for your skin care needs.

3. Wear Sunscreen Everyday
Sunscreen is the ultimate anti-aging tool recommended by beauty experts. Be it summer, winter, autumn or rainy days, you must not leave your home without applying a good quality sunscreen on any exposed body parts.

Too much exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin, particularly its elastin, and cause a loss of collagen. This in turn can lead to sun spots, wrinkles, an uneven tone, dryness, rough skin and sunburn.

Apply an SPF 15 (or greater) sunscreen every day, even in the winter. For maximum anti-aging benefits, make sure to apply sunscreen on your ears, neck, legs and hands along with your face.

4. Get Your Beauty Sleep Daily
To stay looking young for years, get 7 to 8 hours of beauty sleep daily without fail. In fact, sleep is considered the most powerful rejuvenating treatment to maintain youthfulness.

When you sleep, adrenaline and corticosteroid levels drop and the body starts to produce growth hormone. During this time, the repair and growth process of cells occurs. If you don’t get enough sleep, this function is impaired and leads to inflammation that causes many signs of aging like wrinkles, dull complexion and fines lines.

A good night’s sleep also has many health benefits like better memory, mood, attention and concentration as well as a reduced risk of heart attack and stroke.

To improve your sleep, maintain a regular bedtime, avoid caffeinated beverages before bedtime, take a warm bath with a few drops of aromatherapy oil in the evening, and sleep on the right mattress and pillows.

5. Exercise Daily
Exercise is good for your body and mind. Regular exercise improves blood flow and keeps your skin healthy and vibrant. It also regulates your hormones and promotes proper sleep.

According to a study published in the journal Circulation, exercise has anti-inflammatory potential and decreases the risk of developing inflammatory diseases like heart disease and obesity.

Exercise also combats the loss of stamina, muscle strength, balance and bone density that increases with age.

Do some sort of physical activity for 20 to 30 minutes daily. Activities that can help slow down the aging process are running, walking, dancing, cycling, gardening and even housework. Aerobic exercise classes and yoga also help a lot.

Discover the 6 Best Anti Aging Treatments

“Below are 6 good anti aging treatments that are natural and don’t involve going under the knife or other invasive medical procedures:
1. Sesame Oil….
2. Fish Oil

According to studies, taking enough of fish oil supplements appears to have enormous health benefits including dramatic anti aging effects. Fish oil has anti inflammatory benefits, improves heart and immune functions and helps hair grow and skin look healthy. Specifically, taking these supplements regularly may lower the risk for a host of diseases associated with aging, including coronary heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis and even Alzheimer’s disease. Read here more about the amazing health benefits of omega 3 fish oil.

3. Limit white sugar consumption…
4. Antioxidants

Antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, help fight free radicals that break down collagen and thus slowing aging process. A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in October 2007 found that people who ate foods rich in vitamin C had fewer wrinkles and less age-related dry skin than those whose diets contained only small amounts of the vitamin. Vitamin C also helps form collagen, which smooths fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin C also seems to protect against UV sun rays, which can lead to freckles and a mottled complexion and does some repair and firming of the skin. Berries are packed with vitamin C as well as other nutrients, and are known to delay the aging process and to fight free radicals that damage our body. To learn more about the amazing healing properties of berries, have a look at my e-book The Healing Berry Guide. This e-book will teach you how to transform your health with berries.
Experts continue to argue whether antioxidants can prevent heart disease, but some of the evidence is highly persuasive. It is therefore a good idea to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, which are full of vitamin C as well as other healthy nutrients. You can also read my article about the best ways to combine antioxidants in your daily diet. You can also find more information about healthy eating and nutrition in my e-book Effortless Healthy Eating which is part of the Natural Health Revolution Program. This program will help you to achieve your health, nutrition and weight loss goals.

“…And because our blood is slightly alkaline, with a normal pH of between 7.35 and 7.45, our diet should reflect this.
The problem, say alkaliners, is that we eat too many ‘acid-forming’ foods — wheat, dairy, meat, seafood, sugar, coffee, tea, fizzy drinks and alcohol….

This they say causes a pH imbalance which apparently disrupts the body’s ability to regulate itself — leading to a range of problems from low energy and poor memory, headaches, bloating, muscle pain and insomnia to more serious conditions such as osteoporosis.

How Fast Can Alcohol Age You? Posted on 2/10/2012 | Jodi Sawyer, RN | doctoroz.com
“..Can drinking alcohol really speed up the aging process? Well, the truth is that yes, it can make you age faster by causing wrinkles. This includes premature wrinkles, loss of collagen, elasticity, redness, dehydration and puffiness. However, it’s the amount and frequency of your drinking that really matters. There are actually some recent studies that indicate that alcohol has some health benefits – when you drink in moderation.

To begin with, there are no nutrients in alcohol. In fact, alcohol can adversely affect your nutrition levels by causing a depletion in healthy nutrients that aid in carrying oxygen throughout your body. Specifically, alcohol can have a huge negative impact on your vitamin A level, which is a very important antioxidant for your skin/body and it is vital in the regeneration of new cells.

Vitamin A is also extremely important in the production of collagen. When you have lower amounts of collagen, you lose elasticity in your skin. Collagen and elasticity are what keep your skin supple, taut and looking young. ..”
