Dietary Supplements, Culinary Argan Oil & Arthritis
Argan Oil contains Triterpenoids, in particular butyrospermol.
These are important, biologically active substances well known for their anti-inflammatory benefits. . Culinary Argan Oil contains around 18% in Triterpenes.
Linoleic acids in Culinary Argan Oil increase production of prostaglandins 1 which are of help in rheumatologic conditions.
Antioxidants, flavonoids, sapponins like Arganine and tocopherols are also found in very high levels.
These nutrient can promote good circulation and have natural anti-inflammatory effects which are reported to help alleviate Arthritic pain.

Natural Arthritis Treatments and Diet
SAMe, or s-adenosyl-methionine is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Numerous clinical studies have shown that SAMe can reduce pain, stiffness, and inflammation associated with degenerative joint problems. When compared to the common anti-inflammatory medications, Naproxen and Ibuprofen, SAMe did an equally effective job in reducing pain and inflammation over a three month period, and without the gastrointestinal damage caused by these drugs.
Clinical studies show SAMe works well in countering the fatigue, inflammation and pain associated with fibromyalgia, a puzzling and hard to treat condition. Safety: In general, the longer SAMe is used, the more beneficial the results. There are no reported negative interactions with other medications or nutritional supplements.
Spices have always been used as medicines. In one recent medical study, published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, Tumeric/ Curcumin was found to be more effective than ibuprofen for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis when taking 1,500 mg extract per day for 4 weeks. Curcumin was found to be better than other conventional medications at relieving the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis .
Curcumin is derived from the spice turmeric which is a member of the ginger family. Medical research with Curcumin or its parent, Turmeric, is increasing. Studies currently under-way indicate that Curcumin and turmeric may have benefits in cancers, skin conditions like psoriasis, Alzheimer’s disease, irritable bowel disease, autoimmune diseases and chronic pain.
An autoimmune disease is a medical condition in which the body attacks itself. One autoimmune disease is rheumatoid arthritis with Asthma and Eczema like skin conditions being others.
The standard anti-inflammatory medications used to help with the pain can damage the kidneys and increase the risk of stomach ulcers and bleeding. So an alternative safer pain-relieving product is needed for long-term use. Curcumin may be an option.
In the medical journal Phytotherapy Research, two researchers showed that Curcumin is more effective than diclofenac for the pain associated with mild rheumatoid arthritis. In the study patients taking Curcumin for 8 weeks experienced a 44 percent reduction in pain. Those taking diclofenac had a 42 percent reduction. The Curcumin group also had a greater reduction in overall inflammation with no adverse side effects.
Green tea may help with rheumatoid arthritis avoiding inflammation and joint damage. 
Researchers cultured synovial fibroblasts from patients and exposed the cells to epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a compound occurring in green tea. EGCG blocked two of the molecules that cause bone breakdown in rheumatoid arthritis-affected joints as well as production prostaglandin E2, which causes joint inflammation.
Lead researcher, Dr Salah-uddin Ahmed, Ph.D., advised drinking three or four 8-ounce cups of green tea continuously throughout the day.
Suggested Dose is up to 400 mg taken three times per day.
The active ingredient is Boswellia and should be in a 60% concentration.
Capsaicin is an active ingredient in cayenne which has potent pain-relief effects. It can be combined in creams and ointments which, when massaged in externally can help reduce pain.
Researchers from Khon Kaen University in Thailand found that 0.0125 percent capsaicin gel was effective for treating mild-to-moderate knee osteoarthritis pains.
Angelica has 12 anti-inflammatory compounds, 10 anti-spasmodic compounds and 5 pain-relieving compounds.
The Korean Angelica, Gigas Nakai, has the highest levels of phyto-chemicals, Decursin and Decursinol. 
Organo oil is rich in carvacrol which activates HSP ( heat shock proteins1 (HSP)) to stop experimentally induced autoimmune arthritis.
Researchers described oregano oil as having an unprecedented capacity to activate HSP.
Earlier animal studies also showed that the carvacrol oil was a potent pain killer. Oregano oil also has a powerful anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic effect.
Pineapples have a long tradition as a medicinal plant among the natives of South and Central America. Their benefits for arthritis stem from the Bromelain content. Evidence suggests bromelain can have pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects similar to NSAIDs. Suggested dosage 500 mg to 2,000 mg three times a day between meals. 
Celery & Celery Seed
A standardised extract of celery seed which contained 85 percent 3nB was trialed for the treatment of rheumatism.
A 12-week study had 15 subjects that suffered from either osteoarthritis, osteoporosis or gout. Participants were given 34 mg of celery seed extract two times a day. After three weeks there was an average reduction in pain levels of 68 percent. Some subjects had 100 percent relief from pain. The maximum benefits were felt after six weeks.

A number of studies have confirmed that topically applied oils can decrease the severity of arthritis.
It was found that despite some mainstream claims that there is no transmission of oil through the skin that:
“Essential oils and their components are rapidly absorbed through the skin and are detectable in plasma after topical application (Jaeger, 1992).
Therefore, topical dermal delivery of EO represents an effective method to directly deliver a natural, anti-inflammatory agent to the site of inflammation.” 
The list about contains some of the essential oils thought to be most promising for natural Arthritis treatments.
Diluting Essential Oils:
Pure essential oils are very concentrated and can cause a reaction and skin irritation.
Just about all essential oils should be diluted before applying to skin.
Notes About Using Essential Oils on Skin
1 Patch Test:
Before using any new cosmetic product, especially on visible areas like the face, always try to make a small patch test.
There are 3 important reasons for doing a patch test:
- Allergic reaction
- Irritation – Does it cause itchiness or rashes
- Skin Compatibility – Does it cause excess drying or spots
That said, essential oils are widely used and have been used across the world for thousands of years.
If any of them were especially unsuitable for skin we would probably know by now.
So, unless you already have known allergies, you will most likely only need to make a simple patch test.
How to Do a Basic Patch Test
- Choose an area close to that where you plan to use the oils. The side of the neck or inner forearm.
- Apply a little of the oil serum.
- Leave for at least a few hours, ideally 24 hours, to see if there is any reaction.
Remember that you will be testing the final diluted essential oil serum you plan to use NOT a pure essential oil
If you have an uncomfortable reaction that you want to calm try applying a cold plain yogurt to the affected area.
