Nearly 70 million adults suffer from arthritis or chronic joint pain and that number is expected to rise exponentially as more and more baby boomers enter their golden years. Unfortunately, many Americans turn to over-the-counter and prescription medications which may temporarily relieve discomfort but do nothing to alleviate the root cause of chronic pain.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, which used to be the “go-to” solution for pain have come under fire in recent years as medical researchers have discovered that the long-term problems associated with their use negate whatever short-term relief they may provide. NSAIDS have been linked to serious gastrointestinal problems including nausea, vomiting, internal bleeding, ulcers and perforation of the stomach and intestines. They may also increase the risk of fatal heart attacks and strokes, which has prompted the FDA to take some NSAIDS completely off the market.

Fortunately, Mother Nature has provided us with the healthy remedies we need for arthritis and joint pain. One of the most effective remedies is Boswellin, an aromatic resin that is used to make frankincense. Derived from the bark of the Boswellia tree, this resin has been lauded since biblical times for its pleasing aroma and healing properties and it is a staple in Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Medical professionals in Western cultures now recommend Boswellin as a safe and effective alternative to NSAIDS. The active agents of the resin are natural compounds that provide fast relief for pain without the dangerous side effects of NSAIDS.

Because of its proven ability to alleviate pain, the demand for Boswellin has skyrocketed in recent years and it is included as a major ingredient in many natural supplements. The resin is converted into a powder or liquid form to make it easier to use. Millions of health conscious consumers use the supplements on a daily basis to prevent and treat chronic joint pain and arthritis. One of the most popular supplements is “Alleviate” which is available through the Institute for Vibrant Living.

It is important to remember that a nutritional supplement is just one component of an overall plan to prevent and treat joint pain. Stretching and strength-building exercises such as Pilates and yoga can help ease pain and increase flexibility. Regular massages and hydrotherapy can improve circulation and relax muscles.

Today’s senior citizens are more active than ever before and there’s no reason to let achy joints or arthritis pain hamper your busy lifestyle. There is no magic pill that will turn back the clock, but there is a natural, safe way to dial down the pain. Talk to your holistic practitioner about the advantages of adding natural supplements to your daily regimen so you can enjoy a happy, active new year with your family and friends.
