The NorthStar blog on arthritis covers the latest breakthroughs on arthritis and arthritis pain relief, including the best options for natural pain relief from chronic arthritis and joint pain.

  1. The HIDDEN cause of RA… and the immune-boosting key to REVERSING it

    Rheumatoid arthritis? At MY age????

    Hate to break it to ya, but… yep.

    You can get rheumatoid arthritis at just about any age, with the latest numbers showing that the average age of diagnosis is on the rise.

    It’s jumped by an average of nearly FIVE YEARS, so most people almost hit Social Security age before they’re even diagnosed

    But new research reveals a key reason WHY more older folks are getting RA.

    More importantly, it also shines a light on something else.

    It shows why a “forbidden” treatment… one doctors will warn can’t possibly help… can truly work wonders for you or anyone you love battling this debilitating form of arthritis.

    Get REAL relief… from THIS

    Unlike osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear on the joints, rheumatoid is triggered by an immune system malfunction.

    It can no longer effectively sort friend from foe, and so it turns on parts of your own body…

    Especially the joints.

    Docs have struggled to figure out why.

    Most believe it’s a flukey thing that “just happens” to some people.

    But a new study shows it’s not a fluke -- at least in some cases.

    It’s a MED!

    One class of drugs in particular can increase the risk of RA by 40% after a single course… and 66% if you’ve taken them twice or more.

    And that risk can linger for YEARS after you take the meds.

    It’s antibiotics.

    The drugs kill bacteria. That’s their job.

    But they don’t just kill BAD bugs.

    They also wipe out many of the good ones – including the bacteria essential to immune function.

    This link also explains something else. And it’s something that’s driven the mainstream absolutely batty…

    Lots of people with rheumatoid get REAL relief from probiotic supplements.

    Tell that to a mainstream doc… especially a rheumatologist… you’ll get an earful.

    “Nononono! That can’t POSSIBLY do a thing for your rheumatoid!”

    I’m sure there’s more than a little job security fear in that denial.

    If a bowl of probiotic-rich yogurt could ease your RA better than meds… you sure as heck don’t need to keep a rheumatologist on the payroll.

    So, here’s the deal…

    First, don’t instinctively reject all antibiotics. Just make sure you take them ONLY when the doctor is absolutely sure you actually NEED them.

    Sometimes, they’re the best – or even only – way to knock out nasty infections. Others, well, not so much. He’s just taking a guess.

    You won’t know which… unless you ask.

    Second, take a probiotic during and after to help undo the damage of the drug and restore the good germs so your immune system doesn’t skip a beat.

    And third, if you already have RA, try probiotics yourself and see if you can’t blow your rheumatologist’s mind.

    It’s not a CURE for rheumatoid, mind you -- so he shouldn’t worry too much about his job.

    But many people report that probiotics help.

    For more relief, consider vitamin B6 – which can cut levels of the inflammation marker IL-6 involved in RA – and increase your intake of soluble fiber.

    This fiber – found in beans, dark greens, zucchini, celery, nuts, etc – gets converted into the short-chain fatty acids that help to activate GPR43, a molecule that helps keep immune function under control.

    And last month, I shared the latest on low-dose naltrexone, which a growing number of docs are using to successfully treat autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid.

    Unlike probiotics or B6, you can’t try this one on your own – so ask a naturopathic doc about it.

  2. Steroid shots for knee pain? Not after you read this!

    If I ever offered a patient a natural, non-FDA-approved treatment proven to hurt instead of help

    The authorities would have me tarred, feathered, and chased right outta town.

    And rightfully so!

    Of course, I’d never do that.

    But mainstream docs get away with something just like that ALL THE STINKIN’ TIME!

    If you have arthritis, there’s a good chance it’s happened to you – and odds are, you didn’t even realize it.

    You didn’t… because when it’s an “approved drug,” this kind of reckless and unethical behavior isn’t just ALLOWED.

    It’s practically ENCOURAGED!

    The authorities are totally cool with it when mainstream docs reap huge profits off drugs

    Even when EVERYONE KNOWS they not only WON’T help… but quite possibly could HURT.

    And you don’t have to take my word for it on that.

    Just take a look at the latest research on arthritis, which once again – for the umpteenth time – proves that a common first-line treatment is a sick joke.

    How NOT to treat your knee pain

    Docs have used steroid shots as a go-to treatment for knee pain since… well, FOREVER.

    And for about that long, we’ve known they don’t work very well.

    But docs offer them anyway, because they take about 10 seconds…. and they can bill up to $300 a pop for them.

    What a scam!

    Now, a new study shows the REAL price of those injections

    Among patients given intra-articular corticosteroid injections for knee or hip pain, 8% suffer from serious complications that lead to:

    • MORE pain
    • LESS function
    • WORSE deterioration, and
    • FASTER arthritis progression.

    How’s that for a kick in the knees???

    That last problem was the most common… and maybe the worst.

    About 6% of patients suffer from accelerated progression of their arthritis.

    But the other risks are no picnic either.

    Fracturesloss of blood flow to the joint… and joint DESTRUCTION, including bone loss.

    Ouch, ouch, ouch and OUCH!

    And what do people get for those risks? Pretty much nothing!

    One analysis a couple of years back found the shots do NOTHING for pain in 56% of patients… and NOTHING for physical function in 64% of patients.

    Among the rest, the response rate is only slightly higher than what you get from a placebo – and even then, the benefits don’t last.

    They’re gone within six months!

    Yet docs keep offering it anyway… and keep getting rewarded for it.

    It’s time to reward yourself instead by giving your knees something that works for a change.

    UC-II collagen can help your joints to rebuild and repair themselves so well… it’s been proven to be 240% more effective than the tried-and-true combo of glucosamine and chondroitin.

    By itself, it’s just about the most powerful natural option for arthritis pain in the knees out there.

    But don’t just take it by itself.

    For complete relief and maximum protection, combine it with other proven natural therapies such as curcumin, hops, and Boswellia extract.

    In Your Corner,

    Dr. Allan Spreen

    “When I wake up, I rub the cream on the front and back of my right leg and just around the knee on my left leg. Usually, I have no pain all day long. I don’t know of any cream that can go that deep and actually relieve pain.”

    “Amazing! Cream eases the pain every time I use it.”

    Arthritis Relief Cream for Chronic, Long-Term Pain

    But what about arthritis cream reviews for long-term pain, pain that nothing else seems to touch? Arthritis Relief Cream is the miracle you’ve been looking for. It certainly is for Dave Cantina, who’s back in the game again…

    “I am very satisfied with the Arthritis Relief Cream…I am 51 years old and play competitive softball.  For months I was unable to find relief for (my) knee. Using … Arthritis Relief Cream on my knee I was able to find relief and my leg now feels better than ever!”

    In fact, Dan Dickerson keeps Arthritis Relief Cream around even now that his chronic pain has passed...

    As a martial artist training several days per week, it has been very effective for aches and pains in joints and muscles. Specifically I had the lateral area of both elbows literally bothering me for 2 years in spite of all kinds of treatments, including ‘alternative treatments.’  I used Arthritis Relief Cream twice daily religiously. There was an immediate relief upon application, but after about 3-4 weeks the discomfort no longer returned even after training sessions. I still use on both elbows as a preventative whenever my elbows have been cranked-on hard during training. I use on other areas with similar response.”

    And yes, Arthritis Relief Cream will work on your arthritis pain. Just listen to this arthritis cream review from Sheena Davis of Little Rock, and her husband – and their friends…

  13. [VIDEO] Menthol Oil – Fast, Safe, & Effective Topical Pain Relief

    menthol oil Menthol. You know that comforting smell anywhere – it means pain relief is on the way. Nothing else has that cooling sensation when it touches your skin – or makes you feel better faster. But while menthol is one of the most well-known, powerful, over-the-counter ingredients available for pain, you may not actually know that much about this effective pain reliever… What is Menthol Oil? Menthol oil is derived from mint plants, such as peppermint, which is why you get the same cooling on your skin as you get in your mouth when you take a strong breath mint. Menthol has been approved by the FDA as an effective treatment for many aches and pains. In pain relievers, menthol oil acts as a counterirritant – which means that cooling sensation you feel is actually distracting your body from the other pain. As crazy as it sounds, that’s how a pain reliever with menthol makes your sore muscles and achy joints feel better. How to Use Menthol Oil The most common, medical use of menthol oil is as a topical pain reliever. Depending on the product, it comes in creams, gels, or liquids. Usually it only takes a small amount of menthol oil, rubbed directly on to the pain. The menthol starts to go to work almost immediately. That’s how strong and effective it is. It can also be safely combined with other pain relievers, like capsaicin or salicylates. In fact, in combination with capsaicin, menthol can contribute to a real one-two punch of a pain killer. Side Effects of Menthol Luckily, there are no common side effects to using topical menthol oil. How often do you hear that? Some people may find the smell a bit strong, or not care for the cooling response. But that’s a matter of personal preference, not so much a side effect. This safety and effectiveness is why we made menthol, along with capsaicin, the building blocks of Soothanol X2 topical pain relief formula. Soothanol X2 with menthol brings you cooling relief you won’t find in any other ingredient. Just 2 drops of Soothanol X2 is all it takes to…
    • Relieve your pain almost immediately
    • Move easier and more freely
    • Get back to your busy life, without worrying about how much you hurt!
    How menthol oil works and where it comes from may be interesting. But let’s be honest -- when you’re hurting, all you really need to know is that it will work. Which is why you should reach for Soothanol X2, no matter where you hurt. Take a few minutes to watch this brief video. You’ll see why Soothanol X2 with menthol oil is the best topical pain reliever for all of your aches and pains.

  14. [VIDEO] Capsaicin Extract: Topical Pain Relief Superstar

    capsaicin extract Capsaicin extract is a superstar ingredient used in many topical pain relievers. Capsaicin extract works on all kinds of joint and muscle pain. Perhaps more importantly, it goes to work almost immediately. The very first time you use capsaicin extract, you’ll be amazed at the warm relief. That warmth is your indication that the extract is working, and it means your pain is about to go away, fast. When you have sore muscles, or stiff joints, a few drops of capsaicin extract are all it takes to speed heat to the source of your pain. But what makes capsaicin extract so effective? What is Capsaicin? Capsaicin is warm because it comes from chili peppers – the kind that add spice to your foods. It’s been used as a topical pain reliever for centuries, most notably by the Native Americans. They would rub chili peppers on their gums to treat toothaches. In the 1800s, several chemists were working at extracting capsaicin, but it wasn’t until 1898 that Karl Micko first isolated capsaicin extract in its pure form. Today, it is a common ingredient in many topical pain relievers. How Does Capsaicin Extract Work? So how does oil from a pepper become a pain relieving ingredient? It goes to work 2 ways:  first, by “communicating” with nerve endings, and then by “distracting” your body from the original pain. When it “communicates” with the nerve endings, in essence, it calms the nerves, which reduces the intensity of the pain. But capsaicin also acts as a counterirritant, which is where the distraction comes in. Counterirritants, in this case the warmth from capsaicin, literally distract your body from the original pain. In other words, your body is too busy feeling the warmth to be bothered with feeling the pain any longer. This two-pronged approach to pain relief makes capsaicin extract a powerhouse ingredient by itself. It can also be used in combination with other pain relieving ingredients, such as menthol, to take pain relief to the next level. Are There Side Effects of Capsaicin Extract? Capsaicin extract is incredibly safe, with limited side effects. In fact, the most common complaint is that the warming sensation is a little too much for some people. But if you’re still concerned, or need to know more about drug interactions, a quick chat with your doctor should put your mind at ease. Where Can I Use Capsaicin Extract? You can use capsaicin extract wherever your body hurts. It’s effective on sore muscles, achy joints, or anywhere else you’re stiff and uncomfortable. Which is why we included it in our best-selling topical pain reliever, Soothanol X2. Soothanol X2 combines capsaicin with menthol – another powerful pain reliever – to create the ultimate, fast-acting topical pain reliever. With 2 of the strongest, natural pain relievers ever known, and supporting ingredients that help you feel better fast, Soothanol X2 works reliably and quickly. And you’ll know it because you’ll feel the capsaicin extract’s warm, soothing sensation go straight to the source of your pain starting the moment you apply it. From stiff necks, to sore knees, and everywhere in between Soothanol X2 will rush pain relief wherever you need it. And, unlike pills, it’s absorbed quickly, easing your pain in seconds rather than 15 minutes, 20 minutes – or more! Capsaicin extract is powerful, safe, and has very few side effects, just like Soothanol X2. Take a few minutes to watch this brief video. You’ll see why Soothanol X2 with capsaicin extract is the only topical pain reliever you’ll ever need. And when you order today, you can take 25% off your first order.

  15. [VIDEO] What Are the Best Options for Upper Back Pain Relief?

    In most commercials and ads that talk about back pain, they show a person grabbing at their lower back. But you know better. You know that’s not the only kind of back pain there is. Upper back pain can be just as unbearable, just as debilitating, as any lower back pain. And we know it, too. That’s why we made sure that Soothanol X2 is as effective at upper back pain relief as it is on all kinds of pain. Causes of Upper Back Pain Upper back pain is frequently caused by one of three problems…
    1. Muscle Strain often happens when you “pull something” during a workout, or while working. If you sleep in the wrong position, and wake up achy. Generally, muscle strain (or injury, or overuse) is what most of us feel when we roll our shoulders and wish our backs didn’t hurt so much.
    2. Poor Posture is pretty self-explanatory, but it’s also easy to forget. Sitting or standing with our shoulders curved over or our heads down creates strain on our muscles. This strain can result in short, or long-term, pain. Work on straightening your spine, keeping your shoulders back, and your head held high to prevent posture-induced pain.
    3. Myofascial Pain is pain that is in the connective tissue around a muscle, rather than in the muscle itself. It can be caused by overexertion, as well as poor posture, too.
    Soothanol X2: Fast, Safe Upper Back Pain Relief Regardless of which of these is causing your pain, relief is as close as Soothanol X2 topical pain reliever. But aren’t topical pain relievers just for arthritis? Or a pulled muscle? After all, those are the conditions everyone always says topical pain relievers are good for, right? Well, yes, topical pain relievers are good for arthritis. And they are good for pulled muscles. But that’s not all a topical pain reliever is good for. The same menthol and capsaicin you are used to hearing about for other types of muscle pain are also highly effective for upper back pain – even the pain caused by poor posture, or myofascial pain. A Solution at Your Fingertips with Soothanol X2 All of which is to say that upper back pain relief may already be in your medicine cabinet. If you already love Soothanol X2 for aches, pains, bruises, or arthritis, then reach for it to help your upper back pain and rest easy again. And if you haven’t heard of Soothanol X2, then we’re about to change your life. Spend a few minutes watching the short video below and you’ll see exactly what we mean. Because Soothanol X2, with menthol and capsaicin, relieves every kind of muscle pain – including upper back pain – in 60 seconds or less! The warming capsaicin and cooling menthol join forces to rush relief to your upper back pain – shoulders, neck, mid-back – anywhere it hurts. Get your golf swing back. Sleep in whatever position is most comfortable. Your upper back pain won’t stop you any longer, not with the soothing power of Soothanol X2. And remember, if you aren’t 100% satisfied, if you don’t experience fast and soothing upper back pain relief, move easier and feel better after using Soothanol X2, you can return it – no questions asked – for a full refund of the purchase price. Your upper back pain is a serious pain that requires serious relief – Soothanol X2. Take a few minutes to watch this brief video. You’ll see why Soothanol X2 is your best option for upper back pain relief.

  16. [VIDEO] What’s the Best Treatment for Lower Back Pain Relief?

    If you have lower back pain, you know how disheartening the routine is. You sit for too long, your lower back hurts. You stand for too long, your lower back hurts. On the golf course, in the garden, chatting with friends, or playing with the grandkids – your lower back hurts. And the more doing the things you love hurts, the less you want to do the things you love. But Soothanol X2 can get you back in the swing of things, and not just keeping up, but leading the way! What Causes Lower Back Pain? Doing too much. It’s easy to strain our backs if we don’t take care of ourselves. Walking in shoes with too little support … lifting heavy items with our backs instead of our legs … overdoing it on the weekends, or without warming our muscles up… All of these things seem innocent enough, but can result in painful injuries. Doing too little. Like any muscle, if we don’t use the muscles in our backs, they get weak. Once they get weak, they can be hurt easily. Just sitting around for long periods of time may feel good at first, but will hurt in the long run. Arthritis – and not just in your back! Arthritis in the back can be debilitating. But even if you don’t have arthritis in your back, doesn’t mean your back isn’t affected by arthritis. If you have arthritis in your hips, knees, or ankles, it can affect the way you walk. As you compensate for the pain in your legs, you end up tweaking your lower back. It’s a vicious cycle. Soothanol X2: The Best Topical Pain Reliever for Lower Back Pain But Soothanol X2 can break that cycle of pain.

  17. [VIDEO] Best Topical Pain Reliever for Arthritis Hip Pain

    Although you know arthritis hip pain may feel more debilitating than other kinds of joint pain, you may not understand why. But you’re not crazy – arthritis hip pain is different. While all of the joints in your body are important, some are vital to moving freely. These joints are the ball-and-socket joints. Sometimes called ball joints, they are the ones that control major range of motion, and support the skeletal structure. Plus, unlike hinge joints – our fingers for example – ball joints allow us to move in more than one direction. Our ball joints allow us to pivot and rotate, all while being strong enough to bear our weight, or the weight we’re carrying. Our hips are the largest ball joints in our bodies. So, when our hips – the body’s most important ball joints – don’t move well, nothing moves well. That’s when you want Arthritis Relief Cream . Why? Because Arthritis Relief Cream is the best topical pain reliever for arthritis hip pain. And here’s why… Dangerous Temptations While it’s tempting to reach for an over the counter (OTC) pain killer when pain and stiffness locks up your hips (or any of your joints), it’s not always worth the risk. NSAIDs (such as aspirin and ibuprofen), acetaminophen, and other pain pills come with warnings and side effects lists that seem to be miles long. You have to think about what other medications you’re taking, be aware of overdoses and interactions. You have to worry about what other problems these OTC pain killers could cause, and balance those risks with just how effective they may – or may not – be on your arthritis hip pain. Plus, if your hips lock or stiffen before it’s time to take another dose, there’s almost nothing you can do. Big Arthritis Hip Pain Requires Big Relief A topical pain reliever can be the solution you’re looking for, especially one that uses the active ingredient, menthol, and uses it in the right amount. Menthol is a powerful counterirritant that “distracts” the body with a cooling sensation, and offers penetrating relief to your hips and shoulders. One of the few topical pain relieving active ingredients that has been proven to work against pain, menthol has been recognized as a safe alternative to pain pills for years. So what can make menthol even more effective on your arthritis hip pain? When it is paired with the right other ingredients. Oils and other natural products that provide support to the menthol, making it easier and faster for your body to absorb – which gets the pain relieving menthol to the source of your pain even sooner. And that formula is what makes Arthritis Relief Cream topical pain reliever perfect for arthritis hip pain. Arthritis Relief Cream goes to work on contact. No need for anything to build up in your system before you can walk or move comfortably again. The cool tingle starts making you feel better immediately, the oils and natural compounds speed the relief to your joints, and in as little as 30 minutes the pain is relieved  – and can stay  that way for hours! Try getting that result with an NSAID or acetaminophen. If you’re tired of arthritis hip pain, or even just stiffness, take a few minutes to watch this brief presentation. You’ll see why Arthritis Relief Cream is the best topical pain reliever for arthritis hip pain. And when you order now, you get 25% off your first order. Try Arthritis Relief Cream today, the pain reliever that’s big enough to take on big pain.

  19. Vitamin D builds immunities

    If you had been watching me wade through my daily stack of research reading the other day, you’d have spotted me do one heck of a double take. Wondering what the line that caught my eye was? “Our data suggest vitamin D may be involved in maintaining the health of the immune system as well as the skeletal system.”  This remarkable “confession” was spoken by Dr. Mary Ward, one of the author’s on a new study on D that’s been accepted for publication in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. Now, there’s no denying the importance of vitamin D. There’s even a stack of research proving the critical role it plays in our health from fighting off respiratory infections to keeping you out of a nursing home… if you know where to look for it, of course. (Hint, it’s not in the mainstream media, but you can start with a search in the NorthStar Blog’s archives.)

    Be sure to get your D!

    But it’s still quite rare to see such a straightforward conclusion about the significance a vitamin plays in keeping us healthy, from such a mainstream, source. In this case, Irish researchers completed an observational study on 957 adults who were at least 60 years old. They found that those volunteers who were vitamin D deficient had significantly higher biomarkers for inflammation. And that’s important, because these biomarkers are linked to heart disease and other inflammatory conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. So what does this all mean to you and me? I’ll let Dr. Ward explain, “The results indicate immune function may be compromised in older individuals with vitamin D deficiency.” In other words, be sure to get your D! To raise your vitamin D levels, I recommend spending more time outside. But since many of us can’t—or don’t—get all the D we need from sunshine alone I also generally recommend taking up to 5000 IU of vitamin D3 daily. A blood test can help you, and your doc, figure out what’s right for you.
  20. [VIDEO] 2014 Guide to Topical Pain Relief

    When you’re in pain, the last thing you want to think about is making a complicated decision about what pain reliever to reach for. That’s why we’ve developed this 2014 Guide to Topical Pain Relief -- so you know in advance what the best choice is for your type of pain. You have lots of options when you’re hurting: pills, creams, supplements. You can even grab an ice pack or soak in a hot bath. And there are days when each of those options is viable. But some days, your best choice is topical pain relief. So let’s take a closer look at topical pain relievers… Why a Topical Pain Reliever Topical pain relief is a great solution to address your pain if you …
    • Already take large numbers of pills. If you take several pills or supplements a day, the thought of having to swallow one more can feel like one too many. Plus, it can be easy to lose track of which pill you took, and when it’s time for the next one.
    • Have a hard time swallowing pills. Many people have difficulty getting any pills or capsules down to begin with. For these people, swallowing a pain pill can feel as tortuous as the pain they’re trying to ease.
    • Worry about side effects and/or overdosing. The pain killers you pick up at the drug store, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, have long lists of possible side effects. Sometimes, the symptoms and conditions they can cause are worse than the original pain. Also, since so many medications contain these active ingredients, it’s easy to unintentionally take more than you meant to, and risk an overdose.
    • Need faster pain relief. Regardless of how “fast-acting” a pain pill claims to be, it’s still a pill. Which means you still have to swallow it, let it dissolve, make its way through your system, and then – finally – get some relief, after 15, 20, minutes, often even longer.
    Topical Pain Relief Ingredients There are 3 main types of ingredients in topical pain relievers, and each one works just a little differently.
    • Counterirritants. These are a family of ingredients, rather than one specific ingredient. Counterirritants draw the body’s attention away from the source of the pain by creating another sensation – very often a cooling one. Menthol is a common, and highly effective counterirritant.
    • Capsaicin. In a topical pain reliever, capsaicin “communicates” with nerves, decreasing the intensity of the pain you feel. It also generates a warming sensation, which makes it a counterirritant, as well as a pain reliever in its own right.
    • Salicylates. These are similar to aspirin and, when absorbed into the skin, are reported to work similarly to aspirin taken orally.
    Making the Best Choice for Topical Pain Relief Now that you understand topical pain relievers, it’s time to choose one. But how, when there are so many options out there? Here are some things to consider:
    • What is the topical pain reliever designed to do? If you have achy muscles, will it help them, or is it only geared toward joint pain? Or if your joints are stiff, does the product only address muscle soreness? The best topical pain reliever will be targeted enough to address your condition, but be versatile enough to relieve most of your aches and pains.
    • How many active ingredients does the topical pain reliever have? And in what amounts? If the product you’re considering doesn’t have enough pain relievers– either in number of ingredients, or in effective amounts – you simply aren’t going to feel the results, no matter what they promise.
    • What do the other ingredients bring to the table? This is one people often overlook, but it’s important. Because be assured, if an ingredient is in a product, even an inactive ingredient, there’s a reason for it being there. So, be sure to read the label. Are the inactive ingredients there just for show? Do they make it a pretty color, give it a pleasant scent, or just make it feel good if you rub it between your fingers? Or do the inactive ingredients support the active ingredients, in some way? The best topical pain reliever will have inactive ingredients that encourage absorption, that enhance the active ingredients, and that aren’t just superficial.
