What is arthritis quackery (unproven remedies and tests)?

Like many people with chronic ailments, sufferers of chronic arthritis are potentially vulnerable to proponents of heavily marketed "cure-all" treatments. These "quick fix" treatments are promoted as having great benefits, but in reality have no right to such claims.

Quackery (the business of promoting unproven remedies) is recognized as a billion dollar industry. We feel the buyer should beware!

Consumers should be especially cautious when products come with marketing claims such as "will cure," "ancient remedy," "has no side effects," "revolutionary new scientific breakthrough."

Is there a cure/medications for arthritis quackery (unproven remedies and tests)?

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints. It's one of the most common reasons for disability in the United States, and it affects many million people worldwide. Unfortunately, there's no cure for arthritis. But there are some treatments that can help manage symptoms and keep them under control. Here are some of your options: Medications: There are several different types available to treat arthritis. Many of these medications work by reducing inflammation or pain in the joints, while others help prevent further damage to the joints. Your doctor will help you find an option that best suits your needs based on your symptoms and other medical conditions you may have. Some of the medications for treating Arthritis include: 1. Glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate: This is the most common supplement taken by people with arthritic conditions, with studies showing that it can help reduce pain and inflammation in some cases. It's also safer than many other supplements in this category because it doesn't have any known side effects. 2. Collagen/gelatin: Studies show that taking collagen can help reduce joint pain and stiffness, but more research needs to be done on how much collagen is needed at what intervals before it becomes effective. 3. Boswellia serrata (Indian frankincense): This herb has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as an anti-inflammatory remedy for joint pain; however, there isn't enough evidence yet to say whether or not it works as a treatment option for arthritis sufferers. 4. Turmeric Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries as a remedy for inflammation, but there's no evidence that it works. In fact, some studies show that turmeric can actually increase inflammation and cause stomach problems when taken orally (so don't take it in pill form). Turmeric is best consumed as part of food rather than as a supplement—which is why we recommend adding it to soups and curries! 5. Fish oil Fish oil has been shown to reduce inflammation and relieve pain caused by arthritis, but this only applies if you have very low levels of omega-3 fatty acids in your body (which most people do). You can try taking fish oil supplements or eating more fish like salmon; just make sure not to overdo it with either one!
