With pain medications such as Vioxx and Bextra taken off the market, and warning labels going on over-the-counter drugs such as Ibuprofen and Aleve, chronic pain sufferers choices for relief are shrinking. The proprietor of our local health food store shared with me some natural alternatives for arthritis. They claim through anecdotal evidence that these alternatives helped free a local child from rheumatoid arthritis.
Yucca extract in liquid or gel form has natural steroidal qualities. Taken with unsweetened black cherry juice, which has anti-inflammatory properties, the two may help with arthritis with virtually no side-effects. Please consult your doctor before taking alternative supplements so that they can keep a check on your health and protect you from drug interactions.
