According to the Arthritis Society of Canada, over 4.6 million Canadian adults have some form of arthritis. Though many of these adults are well under senior age, older adults with arthritis often have a more difficult time managing their pain. Some turn to prescribed medications, while others take an alternative approach to relieving their arthritis symptoms. If your elderly loved one is looking for a natural solution to alleviating arthritis pain, Vancouver, BC, caregivers have put together a list of suggestions that may help.
add turmeric to the diet
Add Turmeric to the Diet

Turmeric is a unique Indian plant that is harvested to create a fine yellow powder for cooking and health supplements. It is one of the few edible plants in the world containing the polyphenol known as curcumin. In larger doses, curcumin is a natural painkiller with anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it perfect for relieving arthritis pain.

consume omega 3 fatty acids
Consume Omega-3 Fatty Acids

In the past, mothers used to feed their children spoonfuls of cod liver oil to fend off disorders affecting bone and joint strength. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oils can now be consumed in capsule form without the overt fishy taste. When taken regularly, these capsules can drastically reduce the joint inflammation, stiffness, and general discomfort associated with arthritis.

try acupuncture
Try Acupuncture
  • Even though acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years, it has only recently become the subject of intensive medical studies. Most of these studies have found people who undergo acupuncture consistently report lower levels of joint pain and stiffness. When choosing an acupuncturist, it is important for your loved one to find an experienced practitioner who is both certified and insured.
cook with extra virgin olive oil
Cook with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil was first studied as a potential arthritis remedy when researchers at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia realized it produced the same bitter aftertaste as over-the-counter painkillers. The peppery sensation in extra virgin olive oil comes from oleocanthal, a natural substance that stimulates the production of anti-inflammatory enzymes. Though extra virgin olive oil might be more expensive than regular olive oil, it also contains much more oleocanthal.

apply peppermint and eucalyptus oil
Apply Peppermint and Eucalyptus Oil

These powerful oils make excellent topical treatments for arthritis and many other forms of acute pain. They both produce a cooling sensation that can override the pain impulses coming from the nerves. Five or six drops of either oil can be mixed with a carrier such as coconut oil to produce a homemade topical painkiller.
