Home Remedies for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Epsom Salt
Epsom salt is also considered a good remedy to ease rheumatoid arthritis pain and swelling. Being a good source of magnesium, Epsom salt regulates the pH levels in the body. This in turn reduces the stiffness, inflammation and pain in the joints. Also, it helps in bone mineralization.

  1. Add 2 cups of Epsom salt to a bathtub of warm water.
  2. Soak in this warm bath for 30 minutes.
  3. Do this up to 3 times each week.


    In Ayurvedic as well as naturopathy, ginger has been used for ages to treat inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Gingerol, a compound in ginger, has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce pain, inflammation and swelling.

    • Rub some ginger oil on the affected area. Then expose the area to sun for 5 to 10 minutes to generate warmth and heat. Do this on regular basis.
    • Chew some fresh ginger slices daily.
    • Also add ginger in your foods or drink 2 to 3 cups of ginger tea daily.
