Psoriatic Arthritis is “simply put” a combination of two diseases. Each of which come with their own complications, compounding, to make daily life difficult.
This disease strikes children and adults. Symptoms can manifest differently in everyone. The disease can get worse over time, go into remission, and then resurface. It is a frustrating thing to deal with.
The symptoms include, swollen wrists, fingers and toes, foot, knee and lower back pain, and painful and “warm” joints. Finger and toe nails discolored and pulling away from nail beds. Redness over the joints. These symptoms can be accompanied with fatigue and tendonitis and can either be symmetrical or asymmetrical.
Psoriatic Arthritis looks much like rheumatoid arthritis, but spondyloarthropathy, a condition which is characterized by inflammation of the spine, is not typically found in rheumatoid arthritis.
Anyone affected with this disease strives to get it under control. Relieving inflammation is one of the most crucial aspects of the disease to get under control. Ongoing inflammation can cause permanent damage to the joints.
We have developed and tested a natural essential oil treatment for pain and inflammation. This essential oil blend used in conjuction with our natural dead sea salts can be an effective all natural treatment to help heal the skin tissue, ease the pain, and alleviate the inflammation. All of which are so important to the control of this disease.
Along with a natural treatment you should keep a journal that includes daily environmental and food exposures. This journal can help you to determine your “triggers”.
