Arthritis relief

Arthritis is a disorder that is characterized by pain in the joints, caused by inflammation. The pain that comes with arthritis can have multiple causes, as there are two types of arthritis: Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is caused by joints that are worn out, while Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the immune system attacking joint tissue. Arthritis is a very common disorder, plaguing millions of people globally. The Wim Hof Method can help those who seek relief from symptoms related to arthritis.

How to relieve Arthritis in a natural manner

Many doctors prescribe medication such as painkillers to relieve symptoms related to arthritis. However, seeking relief with the help of medication is not always without risk, as medication can have severe side effects. Fortunately, numerous options are available for those who want to manage arthritis in a natural way.

Gentle physical exercise. Gentle exercise can help relieve the symptoms of arthritis in multiple ways. It helps you strengthen your muscles and maintain a healthy bodyweight, reducing stress on your joints. Make sure to pick exercises that are suited for your specific condition. This means that you should avoid activities that involve running and jumping at all cost, as these activities have a high impact on your joints. Try swimming or cycling instead.

Cold therapy. Cold therapy can help you reduce joint pain and inflammation. To ease muscle ache, apply ice packs to sore muscles or take a cold shower after physical exercise.

Stress management. Stress induces the production of certain chemicals that have a negative influence on your immune system. As a result, inflammation throughout your body increases, resulting in more pain. Therefore, proper stress management is very important when you try to seek relief from arthritis.

Sleep hygiene. Sleep is also an important factor in relieving arthritis in a natural manner, as it enables your body to recover physically and mentally. Scientific studies have provided a correlation between lack of sleep and all sorts of pain, including muscle ache and joint pain. Proper sleep hygiene and a good night’s rest are thus important when combating arthritis.

Wim I hope to train with you someday. I love to jump into that cold water and climb that mountain with you. Your method has truly helped me with psoriatic arthritis. I am no longer taking Humira injections for my symptoms. I am controlling it with breathing, cold showers and ice baths.

I would have paid $10,000 for this, but that would not be enough because this has changed my life. I feel like I have taken Valium yet am supercharged. As a clinical psychologist my days can be very stressful. There is a stillness inside me now, and what I am really amazed by is the peace lasts.

I started the Wim Hof method in October of 2018, and now the holes I had in my brain are gone. My neurosurgeon was so impressed by the scans that he told me I don't have to come back anymore. I take this as proof that this method works to regenerate brain tissue.

I got anxiety 2+ years ago, and have had panic attacks every day since. Medicine helped a little. I came across your videos and started to walk my 2 miles a day in only a t-shirt at 20F degrees. Within 2 weeks my anxiety went away! I found it to be a miracle.

After 8 months of daily Hoffing, puffing and cold showers I can claim to be cured of my 5 year burnout. Not having had a single cold or flu, my sore knee is working perfectly again, which was very painful the last 2 years. It is like a miracle, and I’m really grateful that our paths crossed.
