A Natural Arthritis Remedy

a natural arthritis remedy
After all the intricate technical details, this study showed that a daily supplement of fish oil makes arthritis medicine unnecessary for many patients. Now then, while most researchers have recognized the powerful value of the Omega-3 fatty acids in fish and fish oil by now, most, if not all, still remain entirely ignorant of the just as vital importance of the complete natural range of the 72+ trace elements in seafood.

Once this becomes widely known, and a daily serving of seafood is implemented in the daily diet of arthritis patients, arthritis will become, in very short order, an all but forgotten 'once-upon-a-time' disease - just like cretinism and goitre.

As a bonus, you won't be getting any colds or the flu, any other autoimmune diseases, and you'll be in splendid general health for a long time to come.

See 10 more abstracts on the powerful effectiveness of the daily seafood routine against arthritis.





Original Abstract:


Effects of High-dose Fish Oil on Rheumatoid Arthritis After Stopping Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs. Clinical and Immune Correlates.

Kremer JM, Lawrence DA, Petrillo GF, Litts LL, Mullaly PM, Rynes RI, Stocker RP, Parhami N, Greenstein NS, Fuchs BR, et al. Division of Rheumatology, Albany Medical College A-100, NY 12208, USA.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the following: 1) whether dietary supplementation with fish oil will allow the discontinuation of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA); 2) the clinical efficacy of high-dose dietary omega 3 fatty acid fish oil supplementation in RA patients; and 3) the effect of fish oil supplements on the production of multiple cytokines in this population.

METHODS: Sixty-six RA patients entered a double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective study of fish oil supplementation while taking diclofenac (75 mg twice a day). Patients took either 130 mg/kg/day of omega 3 fatty acids or 9 capsules/day of corn oil. Placebo diclofenac was substituted at week 18 or 22, and fish oil supplements were continued for 8 weeks (to week 26 or 30). Serum levels of interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta), IL-2, IL-6, and IL-8 and tumor necrosis factor alpha were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay at baseline and during the study.

RESULTS: In the group taking fish oil, there were significant decreases from baseline in the mean (+/- SEM) number of tender joints (5.3 +/- 0.835; P 0.0001), duration of morning stiffness (-67.7 +/- 23.3 minutes; P = 0.008), physician's and patient's evaluation of global arthritis activity (-0.33 +/- 0.13; P = 0.017 and -0.38 +/- 0.17; P = 0.036, respectively), and physician's evaluation of pain (-0.38 +/- 0.12; P = 0.004). In patients taking corn oil, no clinical parameters improved from baseline. The decrease in the number of tender joints remained significant 8 weeks after discontinuing diclofenac in patients taking fish oil (-7.8 +/- 2.6; P = 0.011) and the decrease in the number of tender joints at this time was significant compared with that in patients receiving corn oil (P = 0.043). IL-1 beta decreased significantly from baseline through weeks 18 and 22 in patients consuming fish oil (-7.7 +/- 3.1; P = 0.026).

CONCLUSION: Patients taking dietary supplements of fish oil exhibit improvements in clinical parameters of disease activity from baseline, including the number of tender joints, and these improvements are associated with significant decreases in levels of IL-1 beta from baseline. Some patients who take fish oil are able to discontinue NSAIDs without experiencing a disease flare.
