Most Effective Natural Treatments For Arthritis

Updated on July 7, 2020

Even though research has not entirely managed to keep up the pace with the growing popularity of natural treatments, more and more natural solutions are springing up in state-of-the-art clinical trials. Thanks to recent developments in such trials, we have more clarity regarding the effective results of the following vitamins, minerals, and natural treatments for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and other arthritis-related conditions.


CBD oil may be well-known as a natural alternative cancer therapy, although, it has proved to be far more promising in terms of treating arthritis. One of the major reasons CBD oil products are able to assist with this category of conditions is because the herbal compound is able to reduce inflammation and minimize pain as a result. Therefore, CBD products are an effective symptom management solution for arthritis.

If you are considering CBD products as a treatment, it is always best to evaluate product quality as CBD and THC products host very little dosage recommendations and regulations. To learn more about CBD products, reading product reviews is a great way to establish quality.


Curcumin is the active compound derived from the common kitchen spice, turmeric. Interestingly, curcumin is an extraordinary anti-inflammatory agent that is fast becoming a popular natural medicine. However, because curcumin is difficult for the body to absorb, it is best to take this type of supplement along with a source of fat or opt for a supplement that hosts an oil base.

Antioxidant Vitamins

Vitamins A, C, E, D, and K have been studied carefully as antioxidant vitamins and the results of ongoing studies suggest that these are able to assist as a treatment for arthritis. Even though these vitamins have provided impressive results, it is best to seek advice from a qualified healthcare practitioner to establish safe dosages as it is possible to overdo it even with vitamins. Some of these vitamins may risk-averse effects in the event that patients have other existing health concerns.

Fish Oil

Fish oil is a polyunsaturated mega-3 fatty acid that is found in fish. As a supplement, fish oil boasts exceptional anti-inflammatory properties that can be used as a treatment for pain associated with arthritis. However, fish oil tends to show more promising results as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis more specifically. This may simply be because rheumatoid arthritis is mostly progressed by inflammation.

Safe Use Of Natural Treatments

Regardless of the specific type of natural treatment opted for, even natural options host concerns if not used correctly. Therefore, it is always best to consult with your doctor to establish safe use. Following a healthy balanced diet may be enough to up your intake of suitable vitamins and minerals, although, if you have an existing vitamin deficiency, supplements are likely the most effective solution. 

Other natural treatments for arthritis include physiotherapy that is guided by a professional practitioner. Pairing more than one natural treatment is usually the best way to enjoy notable results. It is also key to understand that most natural treatments require time to provide results, which means long-term devotion is a necessary element.
