Unproven Arthritis Remedies

Many people with arthritis try remedies that have not been tested or proven helpful. Some extreme treatments such as snake venom are harmful. Others such as copper bracelets are harmless, but also unproven.

 There are a number of ways you can tell if a remedy may be unproven. If a product sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Keep this in mind if a product boasts the following:

-The remedy claims that a treatment, like a lotion or cream, works for all types of arthritis and other diseases.

- Scientific support comes from only one research study.

- The label has no directions for use or warning about side effects.

- The person recommending the treatment profits directly from your purchase of the medicine.

- People who are now completely well are presented to you as having the same problems you have (this is called anecdotal evidence).

Arthritis and the pain associated with it do not have to be a part of growing older. Working with your doctor to find a safe and tested method of treatment can help to safely lessen the pain and stiffness and to prevent more serious damage to your joints.
