Ease Arthritis with Household Items

There are many ways to help ease the pain and discomfort of arthritis including medication, natural treatments, and even household items. These household items can go a long way in helping you deal with your arthritis and ease the pain and discomfort of the debilitating disease. If you have trouble holding a number of things, try using a strip of bubble wrap and Scotch packaging tape to help ease your arthritis by wrapping the bubble wrap around the item you are trying to grasp and securing it with Scotch packaging tape to make it more easy to hold. You can also slice or get someone to slice the sides of a tennis ball and put the slides around the item so you can get a tougher grip.

Get some French’s mustard. Apply it over your joints that ache or take a mustard bath by mixing the mustard with a tub of hot water. Make sure you mix the mustard and water together and soak in the mustard bath for about fifteen minutes or until the aches ease. Before you eat a meal, mix two teaspoons of Heinz Apple Cider Vinegar with a glass of water and drink it. Drink this glass of vinegar for at least three weeks to help ease the pain of arthritis and help get those joints moving more freely.

A mixture of the following household items will help relieve some of the discomfort associated with arthritis. Put three bay leaves and four teaspoons of Star Olive Oil in a pan on low heat until it warms, don’t let the oil smoke. After it warms, let it cool for about 5-10 minutes, then pour into a coffee filter or a paper cup and apply it to your arthritic joints. You can dab it on or pour the mixture on your joints.

Another household item that will help ease arthritis is Quaker Oats, but don’t eat it, apply it to your affected joints by mixing two cups of oats and one cup of water in a bowl, warm it in the microwave, but don’t let it get too hot. Let it cool, cool enough that it will not burn your body, and apply it to those aching joints. Like it hot? Try applying some Tabasco Pepper sauce to those achy joints to help soothe and ease arthritis. Tabasco Pepper sauce contains capsaicin, which is a spicy protein that numbs pain. When capsaicin is applied it penetrates into the nerves reducing pain signals to the brain. If you feel a burning sensation when rubbing the pepper sauce on, apply a thin coat of Colgate toothpaste to cool the burning.
