8 Natural Remedies For Arthritis From Your Kitchen


8 Natural Remedies For Arthritis From Your Kitchen

Because there are so many varieties of arthritis, you need to work closely with your health practitioners to understand the type of arthritis you have. However, don’t expect your medical doctor to tell you the natural remedies for arthritis that could be beneficial immediately for your condition.

Here are a number of natural remedies for arthritis you can try right at home.

Eliminate Certain Foods

This is a tricky one because, while important, identification of your trigger food(s) requires strict attention to your diet. You have to carefully watch everything you eat and what happens to your symptoms as a result. This can be a tricky situation, as you may feel that eliminating one food eased your arthritis symptoms while not realizing the inadvertent lack of another food was the actual cause.

To identify if a specific food is exacerbating or even causing your arthritis symptoms to worsen, you’ll need to eliminate a specific suspected food (or foods) for one week to put it/them to the full test. If you’re testing a nightshade (peppers, tomatoes and potatoes), eliminate them one at a time (or all at the same time) for 3-4 months to gauge their impact. It’s extremely important that you maintain a healthy diet during this process.

To complete this test as a natural remedy for arthritis, once you’ve run the week or months of non-inclusion of a specific food, reintroduce the tested food back into your diet, strictly avoiding other dietary changes. If you eliminated multiple suspect foods at once, add one food back at a time every 4-5 days.

Patients who are able to identify a trigger food(s) often find their arthritis much easier to live with.


A natural analgesic and anti-inflammatory, peppermint is one of the most popular natural remedies for arthritis. Simply apply a few drops of peppermint oil onto the affected areas 2 to 3 times each day. If you note any resulting skin irritation, dilute the peppermint oil in extra virgin olive oil. One of my colleagues, Mitch Darnell, M.S. Psychology, says he’s had clients add 8-12 drops of peppermint oil into their warm bath water, finding relaxation and soothing effects on their arthritis.


Apples contain boron, a mineral that studies have shown to reduce the risk of developing osteoarthritis. Additionally, people who already have arthritis found that the boron in apples actually helped relieve their pain. But the questionable thing is that maybe it’s the apple fiber that is relieving the pain, not the boron – or both. Apples also are low on the glycemic index, and if your blood sugar is not elevated for a period of the day, perhaps that alone is causing your reduction in symptoms. No matter what it is about apples, they are still a great food.
