Coconut Oil For Arthritis:
Your Best Natural Pain Remedy
Coconut oil for arthritis...who knew?
Have you been looking for a cure for your arthritis pain?
Do you avoid doing the things you love because you just hurt too much?
Well, hear this! There is a cure for arthritis and it’s not stored away in your medicine cabinet!
Unlike what you may hear from others and even your doctor, this condition is
curable. It develops from an overload of toxins in the system. These
toxins build up around the joint and cause pain and inflammation.
medicine continues to ameliorate symptoms (i.e. manage pain) but in our
opinion has been focused in the wrong direction. The management of symptoms only gets you so far. Rather than just look at symptoms, the more helpful scenario is to focus on cause.
So...this is where coconut oil for arthritis comes in. Again, mother nature has provided a real solution!
Whether you want to ease your muscle aches, loosen up stiff joints or relieve the pain of arthritis, coconut oil can bring you the relief you seek.
Coconut oil is not like other fats. It offers relief to your muscles and joints because it contains a special group of fats known as medium-chain fatty acids. By nature, these fatty acids possess important healing properties.
Benefits of Using Coconut Oil For Arthritis
Internally and externally coconut oil benefits arthritis pain because it acts as:
- An anti-inflammatory
- A pain reliever
- Muscle & joint lubricant and relaxant
Coconut oil for arthritis is considered one of the best natural remedies for inflamed muscles and joints. Arthritis can be very painful and debilitating. Even doing simple tasks or getting around normally can be a challenge.
This is why we recommend coconut oil. It effectively reduces inflammation and is very soothing to inflamed tissues and joints. It also strengthens bones.
Years ago, I suffered greatly from the pain and fatigue of fibromyalgia.
Back then, I wish I had known more about fibromyalgia and coconut oil.
Although my pain was not centered in the joints, the pain was constant
I am here to tell you that no matter where your pain is located, coconut oil for arthritis or fibromyalgia can lessen your discomfort. The oil works best when you warm it first and then apply it directly to the painful muscle(s) or joint(s).
- Increases blood supply to the area.
- Reduces pain and swelling.
- Is very soothing and healing.
Using coconut oil for arthritis to lubricate muscles and joints works extremely well. This is especially true after a bath or shower.
As a gentle lubricant coconut oil benefits you because:
- It promotes circulation in joints.
- It reduces stiffness and increases joint flexibility.
*Many arthritis and fibromyalgia sufferers have found that when they take coconut oil internally as well as apply it externally that their pain significantly diminishes.
Over time, they find it can even disappear!
Some people find that applying a heating pad to the area after massaging the oil on the muscle or joint helps even more.
This is because the oil becomes more viscous and the heat accelerates and deepens penetration.
If you find that your inflammation and pain does not improve by using coconut oil on its own, there is something else you can do. Some people have seen greater results when they combine coconut oil with one or more of the following ingredients:
- Unsulphured Blackstrap Molasses
- Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar
For some conditions coconut oil is a perfect remedy all by itself. However, in certain cases of arthritis coconut oil works better as a carrier rather than as an individual remedy.
Some people have found that coconut oil works fine on its own. This is wonderful!
However, others of you may need to utilize a different approach.
If you are one of these folks, try adding one or more of the above products with the coconut oil.
You may find that all you need is to do is add one additional product with the oil. However, you may need more than one. It all depends on your particular system and the level of pain and inflammation you are experiencing.
You may find that using coconut oil in this way to naturally treat arthritis works much better for you than just using coconut oil alone.
What Is The Proper Dosage?
Coconut Oil Alone:
Coconut oil for arthritis as a natural remedy requires different dosages depending on whether you want to prevent or treat the condition.
Naturally, the dosage will be higher if you want to treat as opposed to prevent.
So, when you begin treatment for arthritis pain, a common guideline is: “for every 50 pounds of body weight, take 1 teaspoon of oil.”
We advise staying at this daily amount until your body gets used to the oil. Then, you can increase your daily intake by another teaspoon.
Eventually, you want to work up to 1 tablespoon per day. (Maybe more depending on severity of symptoms).
For prevention, a good place to begin is 1 teaspoon per day.
Externally, we have seen good results if you massage the oil onto the affected joint(s) 2-3 times per day.
Coconut Oil With Molasses, Apple Cider Vinegar or Turmeric:
The ratio is 1:1 coconut oil to molasses or apple cider vinegar. For example, if you take 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, then take 1 tablespoon of molasses or apple cider vinegar at the same time.
If you take turmeric with coconut oil it depends on whether you take capsules or powder.
Capsules= 8 per day, 2x/day (that is 4 capsules @ 400mg, 2x/day).
Powder= 1 teaspoon per day.
*Both are taken right along with coconut oil.
*Keep in mind that if you choose to take turmeric capsules, you will go thru many more per day than if you purchase turmeric powder.
