Arthritis Wind

Arthritis Wind

Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints characterized by pain, redness, swelling, stiffness and hot sensation in the joints. Chinese medicine differentiates the following four types of arthritis: cold, wind, damp and hot. Often we observe two or three types of arthritis occurring simultaneously, such as cold and damp types together. In such cases, choose foods that aid each condition and are not contraindicated for either type. Herbal therapy can be of great benefit in clearing joints, improving circulation, and reducing pain. Acupuncture is also one of the most effective treatments for arthritis, although progress is sometimes slow.

Wind Type Arthritis

This type of arthritis is characterized by pain that shifts locations, comes and goes suddenly (much like the wind does), and sometimes causes dizziness.
Avoid: meats, shellfish, sugar, alcohol, smoking, and all stimulants, as well as exposure to wind.
