Reduce Joint Pain Inflammation Naturally
Hey guys, I'm Axe. I want to talk aboutall natural ways to reduce pain and inflammation in your body. I'll tell you, there are fourmain ways that I've found over the years in my own body that I've noticed that hey, whenI do these things I've noticed that my joints feel better. I'm a runner, I'm a triathlete,so oftentimes when I'm doing a lot of the running on the pavement, I can feel some painin my joints. But when I do these things nutritionally, I can notice a difference. So if you are strugglingwith arthritis, or fibromyalgia, or any type of joint pain, these are things that may beable to help you. Number one thing you should consider addingin to your diet if you are trying to naturally
get rid of pain are proteolytic enzymes. Andenzymes like proteolytic enzymes are found in certain types of fruits and vegetables.Bromelain is found in the core of a pineapple. Bromelain naturally reduces inflammation.In fact, a recent study has proven that athletes who have injuries to their ACL or sprainedankles, when they were consuming proteolytic enzymes like bromelain, it actually reducedtheir recovery time by 50%. A huge difference, especially if you're an athlete, or have anytype of injury. Proteolytic enzymes like bromelain and papain. Here's my favorite, by far my favorite proteolyticenzyme supplements. It's called Wobenzym.
Wobenzym is incredible, you can find it onDrAxe , or go to any health food store, they'll have this product as well. But again,Wobenzym has proteolytic enzymes that are great for naturally reducing inflammation. Aside from proteolytic enzymes, number two,is herbs. There are certain types of herbs that naturally reduce inflammation. Numberone is turmeric. And turmeric is one of the main ingredients in curry. And what's in turmericis called curcumin. It's been shown to be a natural antiinflammatory. So doing someturmeric daily, also ginger and boswellia are other types of antiinflammatory herbs.But specifically, turmeric and ginger. You
know, a lot of times I'll do a shot of ginger.Ginger juice, or I'll throw some ginger in some sort of Asian cooking dish that I'm makingthat day. Or just throw audio cut 00:02:13 smoothie. But again there are a lot of waysto get ginger. But again ginger is also a natural antiinflammatory. So turmeric andginger, two great ways to naturally reduce inflammation. Number three, essential fatty acids, especiallyomega3 fats. If you naturally want to reduce inflammation and be pain free, get more omega3fats in your diet. And from a dietary standpoint, eating wildcaught salmon, and mackerel, andother fatty fish, is one of your best options.
Also getting some omega3 fats from grassfedbeef and pastureraised dairy is great. Along with flax seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts.So flax seeds, chia, seeds, and walnuts, along with grainfed and grassfed dairy and wildcaughtfish, great sources of omega3 fats that can help naturally with joint pain. And number four, getting more potassium andelectrolytes into your diet. Listen to this principle, sodium brings water and nutrientsinto your cell, potassium flushes waste water and toxins out of your cell. Americans consume10x too much sodium and only onetenth of potassium. What does this doé It causes yourcells to swell up and hold on to water. If
you've ever noticed you have joint swellingand tissue swelling, well that's because you have too much sodium and not enough potassium.As you start to consume foods or do cleanses higher in potassium, your body can flush andget rid of even things like cellulite and the extra fluid in your joints. And what I recommend for that is doing a cleanseor drinking a beverage called SueroViv by Garden of Life or Beyond Organic. It's calledcultured whey. Cultured whey has been used for over 2000 years to speed up the healingprocess. People like Hippocrates actually used this as a healing beverage long, longago. So cultured whey is high in potassium.

First you can keep yourelbow bent, that's fine, and you're going to bring your fist downward so you're gettinga stretch up here. You can either hold it for 30 seconds, if it's not too tight, oryou can just do a slow motion going up and down, and do that just 10 times repeatedly.So either 30 seconds holding it down, 30 seconds holding it up. Or rotating back and forth.And that's gonna get that wrist loosened up
for you a little bit. Then you can turn yourfist to the side and go down and up that way. So, same kind of thing, you can either holdit down for 30 seconds, hold it up for 30 seconds, or just do a slow movement back andforth about 10 times. Once you get your wrist loosened up, then you're gonna start workingon your fingers. So first usually what I'll do is I'll start closest to the hand and thenmove my way to the end. So bending at your joints on the outside here, you're going tojust bring them down. If you want to push a little bit more with your other hand youcan. Stretching those joints out a little bit. Same kind of thing, you can go 10 timesjust back and forth, a little pop in there,
or you can hold it for 30 seconds. Then you'regonna move up to the next joint where you're gonna curl your fingers down. You'll be ableto see them all right there, and there getting those joints in the middle right there. Samekind of thing, you can hold it for 30 seconds, or you can just curl your fingers up and downto get them moving. And then the last joint on the end is usually the hardest. Sometimespeople can just bend them without holding on to them with their fingers. I have to holdon to mine. Mine don't bend on their own. And just kind of curling them down and comingup. So, same thing, you can hold them for 30 seconds, or you can do 10 just nice andslow moving back and forth. Then the last
once to get your thumb involved a little bit,is just to touch each finger with your thumb. Get that moving back and forth.
