OPC-3+Glocosatrin+Vc+Calcium should help you as my mum has benifited from them.

Stpauline, the best thing you can do is take fish oil capsules with a mixture of various oils and also follow an anti-inflammatory diet. Just Google anti-inflammatory foods, and include as many of them as you can. It won't work overnight, but within a couple of months, you should start to feel the benefit. The anti-inflammatory diet is something you should stick with - it's pretty healthy, with lots of fruit and vegetables, so it's easy to follow and very tasty.

RE: Looking for natural NSAIDs alternatives

This is a very interesting thread, I wish I could add a suggestion but I have heard that anti inflammatory foods really do help, along with the Omega 3 and Calcium. I remember someone telling me many years ago that she would eat Tums since they've got calcium in them, lol! I believe that Vitamin D would help as well. Smile

Hi, one other supplement recommended to me by a health food store manager. It is called Alfalfa, in pill form. Two a day with lots of water. It reduces the inflammation and thus the pain. It also works very well for me. Once the pain uis relieved, stop taking it until you need it again. Take care.

RE: Looking for natural NSAIDs alternatives

‚ÄčI too have OA in my spine. I was diagnosed 22 years ago aged 28! Rather than looking for a pill you can try using a cold pack. Frozen peas wrapped in a tea towel for 20 minutes on a low back and 15 minutes on a neck. If you feel stiff (eg when you get up in the morning) use heat rather than cold (a shower or a hot water bottle wrapped in a hand towel use the same way as the peas).

That will reduce the inflammation but please remember OA is classified as a non-inflammatory arthritis so it is the muscles, tendons and ligaments that are inflamed. Physical therapy will help these but you may feel worse before you feel better. Stick with it. I still do an exercise program 3 times a week and I own and ride horses still after all these years (think of hay bales and sacks of feed and I still throw them around!).

Also look at your diet as some foods have an inflammatory effect while others an anti-inflammatory. The only supplement I have bother with is fish oil but that is because I know I lack that in my diet.

I hope this helps a bit!
