Increasing activity levels help with the flexibility and mobility of your joints. Low-impact exercises such as swimming can help facilitate this process.
Meditation is a proven way to help reduce stress levels in those that practice this ancient ritual. Reduced stress helps reduce inflammation in your joints, which in turn lead to reduced pain.
Increase Omega 3-fatty acids intake
Omega-3 fatty acids are said to help with joint pain and arthritis. By increasing intake of omega-3’s it will help your body get the nutrients it needs to fight this pain. Omega-3’s are commonly found in fish oil tablets, salmon, oysters, anchovies, flaxseed, walnuts, and more!
