Morning Body Stiffness Herbal Tea

Morning stiffness is a symptom where one has difficulty and possibly pain in moving his joints after a period of rest and non-use of the joints, such as sleeping at night. This can be just a little in the tissues and after you are up and about the use of the joints and soft tissues mobilize the swelling and decrease it leading to improvement.

What Is Morning Stiffness?

Stiff muscles and joints and neck and back pain are all symptoms that a large number of us experience first thing in the morning!

Morning stiffness and pain affects thousands of people. Although there are specific conditions that cause this, often it's self-inflicted.

So What Causes Morning Stiffness?

People who suffer from conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and rheumatic disorders do have a high rate of morning stiffness and associated pain. However, for the rest of us, non-medical reasons are usually behind the majority of our problems.

Let's take a look at the main causes first since they may give clues as to why people with certain medical conditions can also be affected.

The main symptoms are:

  • Pain and stiffness in one or more joints — especially the hips and knees
  • Pain and stiffness in one or more muscles
  • Lower back pain and stiffness
  • Neck stiffness and pain

Herbal Help: Fortunately, a number of natural methods can defeat pain without relying on risky over-the-counter and prescription drugs. The following herbs offer relief through their anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. But, instead of dealing a deathblow to COX-2, these herbs modulate the production of prostaglandins, thereby keeping inflammation in check.

Devil’s claw (Harpagophytum procumbens): Because it is rich in potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic compounds, most researchers credit the iridoid glycosides in devil’s claw for this herb’s pain-relieving potential. During one double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 63 participants with lower-back pain took devil’s claw or a placebo for four weeks. At the end of the study, those taking the herb reported a significant improvement in muscular pain and stiffness compared to the placebo group. While the recommended dosage to alleviate pain is 100 to 250 mg three times a day, don’t take this herb if you suffer from ulcers or gallstones or if you’re taking warfarin.

Cat’s Claw (Unicaria tomentosa): Cat’s claw originates in the South American rainforest. Used by Peruvian tribes for over 2,000 years, it has only been studied by the modern medical community since the 1970s. The plant’s anti-inflammatory properties have been investigated for its effectiveness in relieving joint pain, swelling, and morning stiffness.

Ginger (Zingiber officinale): This tasty herb, traditionally used to soothe digestive woes, is also a potent COX-2 inhibitor. The keys, say researchers, are gingerols — compounds that hamper the release of arachidonic acid. In a study conducted at the University of Sydney, Australia, researchers found that ginger was just as effective as aspirin at inhibiting COX-2. For best results, take 2,000 to 4,000 mg a day or drink 3 to 4 cups of ginger tea. Although ginger is a safe herb, it may interact with some cancer drugs and certain blood-thinning medications.

Dandelion Leaf (Taraxacum officinalis): Incredibly high in vitamins A and C, dandelion leaves can help repair damaged tissue and help the liver clear toxins out of the blood. Studies, although limited, have also shown anti-inflammatory properties due to the linoleic and linoleic acid in them. Linoleic is an essential fatty acid required by the body to produce prostaglandin-which basically regulates immune responses and suppresses inflammation. Because of its involvement with immune responses, dandelion shows great potential when it comes to treating rheumatoid arthritis in particular.

Willow bark (Salix spp.): Often called “herbal aspirin,” willow bark is a natural source of salicylic acid — the active compound in aspirin. When they compared it to Vioxx, Australian researchers found willow bark just as effective as the pharmaceutical drug for pain and inflammation, but without its negative side effects. The recommended dosage is 1,000 to 3,000 mg of the powdered herb daily as needed. Although willow bark has been safely used for 3,500 years, do not use the herb if you are allergic to aspirin. Rarely, willow can cause stomach upset in aspirin-sensitive individuals; reduce the dose or discontinue the herb if this occurs. People taking anticoagulant or antiplatelet medications should also avoid using willow bark.

Juniper Berry (Juniperus communis): A 2009 research trial published in the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology” found that juniper berries do indeed help with arthritis pain thanks to a component called terpinen-4-ol. Terpene suppresses a type of white blood cells called monocytes which, as a part of our immune system, respond to signals of inflammation. In rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system attacks normal joint tissue for no reason, leading to inflammation, pain, and loss of function. If taken daily, juniper may be able to reduce the uncomfortable inflammation thanks to its terpene content.

Chamomile (Matricaria recutita) is an ancient herbal remedy that has been used to treat a wide range of ailments, including inflammation, insomnia, rheumatic pain, and gastrointestinal disorders. Chamomile contains spiroether, a known antispasmodic that helps to ease sore muscles and joint pain. It also relaxes tension and promotes sleep.

Green tea (Camellia sinensis) also fights pain, say researchers at Case Western Reserve University, thanks to the polyphenols found in the leaves. For chronic inflammation, drink 3 cups of green tea daily or take 300 to 400 mg daily in pills. People with heart disease, ulcers, kidney problems or anxiety disorder should avoid the beverage, as should those taking antibiotics, beta-blockers, anti-psychotics, MAO inhibitors and oral contraceptives.
