10 Early Warning Signs of Arthritis to Watch Out For...

I’m sure you’ve noticed that, as you’ve become a little older, you’ve got all sorts of aches and pains in places you didn’t have when you were younger.  I know I have, and it’s sort of worrying to think about it!

You’re likely wondering if that grinding in your knees as you walk down the stairs is a cause for concern – or if the weakened grip as you try to open a jar is normal -- and possibly an early sign of Arthritis.  

 My Mum had two types of arthritis and I watched her go through so much pain and felt so helpless. I wanted to do something to help her so much but I did not have the knowledge. She had medications from the doctors but they never seemed to totally tale away the pain and of course had side effects she had to deal with too.

As my Mum had arthritis I am now taking even more care and keeping an eye on my body and watching out for any early signs of arthritis.

If like me you are wanting to look after your body and maybe have some concerns over Arthritis , you’re really going to find today’s article below from Dr. Mark Wiley extremely helpful… because in it he once and for all clears up if you’re already doomed or whether or not you even need to be concerned…

If you already have Arthritis, you’re still going to love this article because he also reveals how you can actually reverse its effects with simple changes in your diet alone.  
And even if you yourself don’t have Arthritis now, you are in the best position of all because this will give you the road map to preventing it along with a host of other related health conditions.  

I love being active as possible and want to be able to do my garden, go walking, travel and do what I want to do as long as possible. I saw my Mum struggle with things and the increasing help she required. She was fiercely independent but she did need help with all sorts of things from opening jars to later on walking. If I had known about this book then I might have been able to advise her better. Anyway you can benefit from it so it makes me happy to be able to share with you. Imagine how great it’s going to be to finally be able to do all the things that your arthritis or joint pain has been keeping you from…

Don’t wait around for Arthritis to claim you as its next victim… and if it already has, it’s time for you to fight back and win!

Therapeutica Sleeping Pillow

 Therapeutica Sleeping Pillow, Large Adult, White
If you have back pain, sciatic pain or neck pain often sleep can be a real issue. If you have no problems you rarely give a good nights sleep a thought, but when it is difficult to sleep getting to sleep and staying asleep can turn into a full time preoccupation.
It is very important when trying to rest that our pillow is comfortable and that it helps with good spinal alignment, so helping to keep the spine in a good neutral position, reducing stress.
So anything that can help us to get a good nights sleep is a huge help. I recently discovered this pillow that looks like it could be extremely helpful for some people. 
It says that this pillow  allows us to sleep on our back or side and helps correct spinal alignment and helps relax muscles. It is made of foam. This is important to me as I tend to sleep on my back and then my side for part of each night. By the way usually it is not recommended for us to sleep on our stomach if we have back issues as it is difficult to maintain a good spinal alignment in that position.   
It has a cervical contour that helps maintain a good natural curve of the neck, a wedge extension that supports our upper back for when we sleep on our backs, a raised side panel to accommodate the shoulder and a centre cavity to provide head support and comfort when sleeping on our backs.   
I do think it may take a little time to get used to this pillow at least a week or two as especially if we have incorrect posture it may feel strange at first, it does look an odd shape! However it also appears very good for us.

Do read the reviews, most are very positive and they may help you to decide if this pillow will be good for you. Choosing a pillow is a very personal thing but I find some of the detailed reviews very helpful. Also read the Questions and answer section which was useful. Bear in mind that it does come in different sizes as well so order carefully.
