Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone had tips and advice to ease joint aches and pains naturally.
I recently went to the Dr (something I rarely do) to have some tests done after reading Survival of the Sickest. A friend had recommended the book after she had read it and hemochromatosis made her think of me. I'm drained and exhausted most of the time, I have achy joints that tend to feel better after my period, and while taking multivitamins the pain in my knees often feels worse, though they do help with feeling drained. They tested my thyroid, hemoglobin, and ferritin levels and everything looked normal. So I've just come to the conclusion that I'm achy and drained because I'm 30 and have 4 kids. Plus I'm tired of looking at the numerous other things it could be. I've been told by others it could be gluten intollerence which wouldn't be fun because I try to stick to a diet with complex carbs (wheat's a biggie in my diet) along with other whole foods, high protein, high healthy fats, and such because of my hypoglycemia. It was also suggested it could be because of my paragard (i had pains before though), lyme disease, along with many other things. It seems joint pain and exhaustion are symptoms of many different things.
I've googled some and came across just as many natural remedies for joint pain as I found causes of joint pain. So I wanted to ask to get an idea of what works for others. I usually don't take the route of "treat the symptom", I like to treat the cause. I don't know what the cause is though
Thanks for any and all advice!
