What Is Arthritis?

pain relief for arthritis

AROUND 10 million people in the UK suffer every day with the symptoms of arthritis that causes pain and inflammation in a joint.

The two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis affects 33% of people aged over 45, making it the most common form of arthritis. The condition is caused when wear and tear to the joints stops them being able to move freely, leading to pain and inflammation.

Often called “wear and tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of the disease. In OA, joint cartilage breaks down over time, causing symptoms like joint pain and stiffness.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

RA is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks joint tissue, causing inflammation of the joint lining leading to joint pain, stiffness and swelling. Over time, the joint components are damaged and the condition worsens. About 400,000 people in the UK are affected, with three times as many women as men diagnosed.

Medication is needed to control the symptoms of arthritis such as pain, and to prevent further complications.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for arthritis but there are treatments which can help to slow the condition down. Also, there are things YOU can do to help with the symptoms!

  1. Watch your weight! As we get older we tend to put weight on, and this puts extra stresses on our joints. A healthy diet is essential!

  2. Do Some Exercise! The key to preventing arthritis is maintaining strength in our muscles.  We need to keep our muscles as healthy and strong to help with daily movements such as getting out of the chair, opening jars and getting in and out of the bath!

  3. Keep warm! Heat treatments, such as heating pads or warm baths, tend to work best for soothing stiff joints and tired muscles. Heat enhances circulation, delivering nutrients to joints and muscles. It’s good for getting your body limber and ready for exercise or activity. Cold is best for acute pain; it restricts blood vessels, slowing circulation and reducing swelling. It also numbs nerve endings, dulling pain.

The Beurer EM29 Knee and Elbow TENS Machine for Pain Relief from HealthCare4All

As the weather gets colder, more and more people are asking me for products to help with pain relief. Whether it is due to arthritis, sporting injuries or simply just pulling a muscle.

This week i want to tell you why HealthCare4All recommend the Beurer EM29 Knee and Elbow TENS stimulator for pain relief with 2-in-1 universal cuff.

Beurer EM29 Knee and Elbow TENS Stimulator for Pain Relief from HealthCare4All

Let me tell you a little about TENS machines first, what they are and how they work for pain management.

What are TENS machines used for?

TENS pain relief machines are used for a wide variety of pain, such as back pain, period pains, arthritis and sports injuries.

What should you do before trying TENS?

If you’re thinking about trying out a TENS pain relief machine, the first thing you should do is consult with your doctor. They can advise on other pain relief methods you may like to try, instead of or in conjunction with TENS. These can include physiotherapy or a referral to a pain clinic.

If you choose to go ahead with TENS treatment, a pain specialist may be able to loan you a machine to try out at home. Alternately, you can buy a machine. Healthcare4all has a range of high quality TENS machines on offer, which provide effective pain relief.

How do you use a TENS pain relief machine?

While the machine is turned off, attach the pads on either side of the painful area, avoiding irritated or broken skin, or any numb areas. Switch the machine on, and increase the strength of the electrical signal until it is strong but comfortable. When you’re finished using the TENS pain relief machine, switch the machine off and remove the pads.

Web MD recommends not using a TENS machine while you’re driving or operating machinery, during pregnancy, or in the shower or bath. They also advise not to change the use of your machine without consulting your doctor, and that you clean and check your pads regularly.

If you’re looking for a TENS pain relief machine, our store has a wide selection to choose from.  There’s also a large range of accessories available, meaning you’ll never be short of replacement pads or power leads, should you need them.

As a method of pain relief, TENS machines are a useful, non invasive alternative to painkillers. If you feel you may benefit by using one, speak to your doctor and try out a machine from our range today.

Protect Your Ears With The ProPulse Ear Irrigator from HealthCare4All

This week I want to talk to you about Ear Irrigation!

best ear wax irrigator

 

I appreciate ear irrigation is not the most exciting of topics to discuss, but the build up of ear wax is such a big problem I wanted to search out the best product to help.

Firstly it is necessary to understand that Wax is an important and natural secretion found in the ear. It keeps the ear canal lubricated and protects the ear against dust, dirt and bacteria, which helps to prevent infection.

If wax is not causing any problems, it is best left alone. However if it is causing problems  or has not fallen our within 5 days its a good idea to speak to your GP or pharmacist for advice.

Usually earwax falls out on its own. If it doesn’t and blocks your ear, put 2 to 3 drops of olive or almond oil in your ear twice a day for a few days.

Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of your ear, especially at night when you’re lying down.

There is no evidence that ear candles or ear vacuums get rid of earwax.

Don’t use your fingers or any objects like cotton buds to remove earwax. This will push it in and make it worse.

If wax build up is causing deafness, problems with hearing aids, or is uncomfortable, it may need to be removed. Some people with tinnitus feel that their tinnitus is more troublesome when their ears are full of wax.

After a lot of searching and trying products, HealthCare4All have decided in their opinion that the best product is The ProPulse Ear Irrigator . It is amazing and new for 2017! Its costs £199.99.

Revidox+ anti-aging and immune boosting supplement from HealthCare4All

At this time of year people are talking about Flu jabs and nasty colds that leave them coughing, sneezing and generally feeling rubbish. Its a great idea to take a supplement that will Boost your immune system to help fight off illness and colds.

This Week, I want to tell you about a product that is extremely popular in Europe and especially Spain, but is new to the UK. Its called Revidox and its the only anti-aging product and immune system booster whose efficacy is supported by clinically trials that showed results in 60 days!

There is a lot of hype surrounding Revidox, so before I recommend it I needed to find out if  the claim is justified?

So what is Revidox?

Image result for Revidox PLUS Healthy Skin Food Supplement

Revidox is an anti-aging supplement that not only keep healthy cells healthy but also rapidly replaces your dead cells too. At this time of year, when there are all kinds of bugs and flu viruses going round its a great idea to take a supplement that will Boost your immune system to help fight off illness and colds.

REVIDOX+ Helps maintain healthy hair, skin and nails as well as adding to normal cognitive function.

It is a natural product with which is made from ingredients found in fruits, berries, grapes and of course red wine.

 

45 Kilos of Grapes in Revidox+

Revidox+(RRP £34.99 for 60days) is a NEW ‘beauty from within’ supplement containing all-natural ingredients including STILVID® – a 100% bio-active and patented form of Resveratrol, derived from the skin of grapes(2).

 

How does Revidox work?

Over twenty years ago a scientific study which became known as the “French paradox” showed why the French, who eat unhealthy amounts of fatty foods have the lowest rate of heart disease and related illness in the western world. The answer was found in the red wine they were drinking, to be exact, in the resveratrol in the red wine. Revidox contains STILVID®which is a new patented form of Resveratrol derived from the skin of grapes. It somehow (scientists are still working on this!) inhibits bacteriological infections that wear down the immune system and this is why so many consumers ‘feel’ much better afterwards.

It up regulates the SIRT 1 Gene and slows down cellular aging and helps maintains healthy skin.

Revidox contains the equivalent of 40 glasses of red wine! There is no need to drink 40 glasses of wine a day when you get all these benefits from a single pill and you cannot take too much of it. the more you take the greater the benefits.

Clinical trials have shown that there seems to be a correlation between Revidox and the anti-ageing process. This correlation has been enough to cause a surge in demand for the product!

 

45 Kilos of Grapes in Revidox+

 

What is in it?

Revidox+ contains a vital mix of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins that work in harmony to maintain healthy skin and address the signs of ageing, including:

  • Pomegranate extract: rich in Ellagic Acid, polyphenols and Punicalagin
  • Vitamin C*: a powerful antioxidant proven to promote healthy collagen formation (responsible for our skin’s elasticity) to help encourage firm, plump skin
  • Selenium*: a vital mineral proven to shield cells from free radical damage whilst helping to maintain healthy hair and nails
  • Vitamin B2*: assists with maintaining healthy skin and energy levels. Like Selenium it helps protect cells from oxidative stress
  • Zinc: supports healthy hair, skin and nails, as well as supporting natural immune function

 

How often should I take Revidox+?

Take 1 capsule a day with a meal. We recommend including Revidox+ as a healthy habit from age 30.

*Dietary supplements are not intended to replace a healthy, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Cautions: Not for children under 12, or for pregnant or breast-feeding women.

Like the UK, the past few winters have been fairly quiet but this year they had their worst flu season for a number of years.  Figures suggest that  there was nearly double the number of cases of flu than the average over the past five winters.

Reports have emerged of hospitals struggling, which is why NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens raised the alarm in a speech on Tuesday.

Last year, the NHS went through its worst winter in a generation. And already hospital bosses have warned this winter could be worse given long waiting times and bed shortages over the summer.

Mr Stevens is concerned flu could tip the health service over the edge as well as posing a threat to vulnerable groups, such as the elderly.

Washing your hands

Washing your hands often and using sanitisers can help ward off the germs associated with colds and flu. Getting plenty of rest and having the flu vaccine can help avoid people from getting the flu.

Keep warm

The Mayo Clinic advises that people with diabetes stay warm during the winter, and keep their feet protected and warm by wearing comfortable shoes and socks to help keep circulation problems at bay.

Eat well and exercise

Try and stay healthy throughout the winter by eating well. Have a well-balanced diet that comprises of plenty of fruit, vegetables, protein and grains.

Taking regular exercise can also help you stay fit during the winter and ward off potentially harmful illnesses.

Diabetes products

Diabetes monitoring with products such as a diabetes monitor and a diabetes meter is extremely important during the winter. Such products enable diabetics to test, monitor and control their blood sugar levels.

Here are HealthCare4All’s top 4 tips to help alleviate SAD Symptoms

The shorter, darker days of Autumn and Winter make waking up a struggle for many of us. Summer has gone and Autumn is here which means its getting darker earlier and earlier. It’s hardly surprising that some of us suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

Around 21% of the population experience a less intense form of SAD, which is often referred to as ‘winter blues’, while 8% of the population experience severe symptoms, which can prevent normal function without the right treatment.

SAD is caused by the lack of bright light. Daybreak light is the signal for the pineal gland to stop producing the sleep hormone melatonin but in winter the light level is insufficient to trigger this process.

As a result many people find their body clock moving forwards during the winter, making it harder to get up and get going in the mornings.

The symptoms associated with this seasonal disorder include a persistent low mood, being void of interest or pleasure in everyday activities, moodiness, feeling of guilt, worthlessness and despair, weight gain and craving carbohydrates, feeling reluctant to get out of bed in the morning and sleeping for longer, as well as feelings of lethargy and being tired during the day.

Whilst not fully understood, the causes of SAD are linked to a reduction in sunlight during winter, which can prevent a region of the brain known as the hypothalamus from working properly that has been linked to affecting the production of melatonin and serotonin hormones in the brain.

As the NHS advises if you are suffering from the symptoms associated with SAD you should consider seeing your GP. Your doctor will assess your mental health and ask questions related to your lifestyle, mood, sleeping patterns, eating habits, and other elements that may be affecting your mood.

The NHS lists several treatments for SAD, including making changes to lifestyle, such as exercising regularly, going for counselling, taking antidepressant medication, and light therapy.

Here are HealthCare4All’s top 4 tips to help alleviate SAD symptoms

1. SAD Lamps

The theory behind SAD lamps, is that the white light produced by the lamp “effectively replicates sunshine.” By replicating the sun’s rays, users of sad light therapy can find they have a positive response when using SAD light boxes.

When asked which SAD lamp I recommend I always suggest the Beurer TL30 if you are traveling or the ‘all singing and dancing’ Medisana LSC.

Lets take a closer look at both of these…

The Best SAD Lamp from HealthCare4All

The Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit SAD Light is a phototherapy unit with full-spectrum light. As well as having energy-saving bulbs, the Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit SAD Light is flicker free.

 

The best time to use SAD light therapy and SAD lamps like the Medisana LSC Photo Therapy Unit is between six in the morning and eight in the evening. Such units can be used for up to two hours a day. Treatment is typically most effective when the lamp is used for at least five consecutive days.

 

2. Exercise

The boost of endorphins you get when exercising could help you feel better by flooding your body with those feel-good chemicals.

What better reason to keep active this autumn and winter (preferably outdoors in natural light, rather than the gym)?

 

3. Eat more Healthily

We know how the foods we eat can affect our weight but did you know they can affect our mood too?

Make sure you are providing your body with a healthy, balanced diet, and both your weight and your mood could see the positive effects.

 

4. Try to avoid Stress

High stress levels will only heighten any depressive feelings you’re having.

Where possible, try to avoid stressful situations and take steps to manage the stress levels.
