Rheumatism Prevention Measures:
Although using home remedies is a great way to go, there is such a belief that says that an ounce of measure is better than a pound of cure. So here are a number of preventive measures that you can apply in your life:
- The first and the most essential preventive measure that you can do is avoiding placing excessive impact or pressure on areas being affected with rheumatism.
- It is also advisable to take short yet periodic breaks when you are doing some manual labor, like at your yard. This gives your muscles respite after working right along with you.
- Avoid twisting, gripping, or clenching your hands repeatedly.
- Drinking teas that are known to treat rheumatism like alfalfa tea is already great for preventing the contraction of rheumatism. If they are known to be good for treatment, they could be great for prevention as well.
So if there are people in your family who are asking you where you are going with these measures, tell them that you are just battling rheumatism before its starts.
