‘My arthritis was excruciating – but then I tried natural remedies’

When Emily Johnson developed rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 20, the pain was excruciating. But she soon learned to manage the condition with a change in diet and lifestyle. Emily was in her final year of university when the ring finger on her right hand started to swell up. Soon the painful swelling had spread to another finger and thumbs and her skin became sensitive to touch. “It was excruciating. I couldn’t move my hands as they were stiff with fluid.

Next came the sneezing fits. “I couldn’t sleep or even talk for sneezing, but I passed it off as a cold or hay fever.” Emily was referred to a rheumatologist, who, after initially telling her it was all in her head, eventually diagnosed seronegative arthritis, a...

Three natural remedies to try against psoriasis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition where someone’s body creates antibodies that attack their own healthy tissue. With psoriasis, certain areas of skin are replaced every 3-5 days instead of 28-30 days. This accelerated skin cell production is what causes the redness, scaliness and flaking of psoriasis. What’s really taking place is a T-cell dysfunction – in particular, the TH17 cell. T-cells are part of the acquired immune system – in other words, a system that someone isn’t born with, but acquires over time. This dysfunction of TH17 cells is typically triggered by an altered microbiome, strep throat or other infection. When these cells dysfunction, they induce a massive amount of inflammation, while, at the same time, T-regulating cells are suppressed. Thankfully though, vitamin D sup...

Parkinson’s disease could be treated with natural food ingredients – study

Researchers have found that sesaminol, "purified from industrial sesame seed by-product," can be used to prevent the onset of Parkinson's disease, Osaka City University (OCU) announced late last month. The Japan-based research group said that while there is no cure-all for Parkinson's, the preventative treatment could be used to prevent neuronal damage that would decrease the production of dopamine. In vitro studies have already shown that sesaminol has a number of beneficial factors when it comes to handling oxidative stress, and in vivo experiments have shown that a steady portion of the sesame by-product in a person's diet increase the production of dopamine and motor function capabilities, according to the university. “Currently there is no preventive medicine for Parkinson's ...

My Upbringing Introduced Me to the Healing Power of Natural Home Remedies

No matter how big or small the ailment, someone in my family always has a remedy for it. As a child, at the first possible sign of a sore throat, my mother would bring water to a boil, pour it into a mug, add vinegar and salt, then, when warm, have me gargle the mixture. She used a similar saltwater cocktail when I lost my first tooth. I swished the warm concoction around the gummy space that once held my tooth to stop the bleeding and help the area heal. If I had a cough, she’d slice a lemon, squeeze the juice from each slice into a mug, warm it up, and add a dollop of honey. The tart, sweet, mix helped soothe my throat and chest while breaking down any mucous. Though I didn’t realize it while growing up, these remedies were evidence that wellness was always within reach.
