Dealing with inflammation is never a pleasant feeling. A few symptoms of inflammation include redness, soreness, aches, and discomfort. Unfortunately, when high levels of inflammation go untreated, this may lead to chronic inflammation, which is life-threatening.
For this reason, it is necessary to practice healthy habits to help reduce inflammation within the muscle joints. Additionally, it is necessary to eliminate all unhealthy lifestyle habits that contribute to inflammation in the body.
Here are a few natural ways to reduce inflammation in the body:
Static and Dynamic Stretches
Practicing static and dynamic stretches are an excellent way to reduce high levels of inflammation in the body. Typically, inflammation in the body is a result of poor circulation in the muscle joints. Practicing static and dynamic stretches helps improve the body’s flexibility and range of motion over time. Also, research suggests that stretching has been shown to help improve blood flow and oxygen levels in the body, thus improving overall circulation. Whether you exercise frequently or not, practicing these types of exercises have been shown to help reduce high levels of inflammation in the body.
Static stretches tend to isolate and focus on one muscle group, while dynamic stretches require movements and focus on multiple muscle groups. A few examples of static stretches include biceps stretch, triceps stretch, cobra pose, and seated butterfly pose. Additionally, a few examples of dynamic stretches include squats, walking lunges, and trunk twists. Altogether, practicing these stretches at least 30 minutes per day is an excellent way to reduce inflammation in the body.
Warm Baths with Aromatherapy
Another way to reduce levels of inflammation in the body is warm baths alongside the practice of aromatherapy. Studies have found that warm water compressions are an amazing way to improve circulation levels in the body. As stated above, once circulation levels improve in the body, this ultimately helps reduce high levels of inflammation within the muscle joints.
Lastly, aromatherapy has been found for thousands of years. Aromatherapy is a holistic healing practice that uses smell therapy to help enhance a person’s health – both physically and mentally. Using aromatherapy techniques with your warm baths is an excellent way to help relax the mind and body. Studies suggest that certain scents such as lavender and chamomile contain soothing properties that help relax and calm the body. Ultimately, this is a great way to reduce discomfort within the muscle joints, which gives your body time to reset and recover overnight.
