Healthy Foods would like to take the time out to recognize juvenile arthritis awareness month.
Arthritis is an inflammation of one or more joints where two bones meet. There are many types of arthritis and juveniles can be affected.
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) is often a expression used to explain a standard type of arthritis in children. This is a long-term (chronic) disease leading to joint pain and swelling
The source of JRA just isn’t known. It is actually considered to be an autoimmune illness. With this type of condition, your body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. JRA usually occurs before age 16.When merely a few joints are involved, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory supplements may be enough to control symptoms, but a natural approach is indeed an alternative you should seriously consider instead.
Joint stiffness whenever you awaken each morning
Limited range of flexibility
Joints may be warm or swollen and sometimes red
A child may stop using an affected limb or may limp
Body-wide JRA symptoms:
Fever, usually high fevers every day
Rash (trunk and extremities) that comes and goes with the fever
Swollen lymph nodes (glands)
Children who have arthritis in many joints, or who have fever, rash, and swollen glands may need other medicines. These medicines are called disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). They can decrease or prevent swelling or inflammation in the body. It is always good to take the natural route with supplements like Omega-3 fatty acids, Glucosamine and Chondroitin
