Breaking News: Cherry become pain-reliever for Osteoarthritis
Saturday, March 28, 2009
Now I have planned to discuss some other health information in my blog apart from the Mesothelioma and Lung cancer which I named as "Breaking News". Hope this technique which helps many as possible. Please share your thoughts, views, suggestions and comments on this regard. Your suggestions are always welcome. This time I am going to share about the importance of Cherry, which facilitates as the pain-reliever for Osteoarthritis.

According to recent research, ground whole Montmorency tart cherries in pill form may be a promising pain-reliever for osteoarthritis. A previous study has demonstrated the anti inflammatory properties of a diet supplemented with Bing sweet cherries. In the 1950’s another study revealed that eating one-half pound of cherries a day prevented the onset of gout. In the current study, more than half of the patients enrolled experienced a significant improvement in osteoarthritis pain and function after taking the cherry pills for eight weeks. Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, is considered degenerative and typically affects the hands, feet, spine, and large weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and knees. Patients with osteoarthritis of the knees were enrolled in this pilot study to assess potential efficacy of the tart cherry pills.

“The current treatment of osteoarthritis is largely focused on controlling pain through use of over-the-counter acetaminophen or prescription pain medications as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs,” explains John J. Cush, principal investigator of the study. “These conventional medications are widely used, but have not been shown to alter the natural history of the disease. In some cases, overuse may contribute to significant gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, hematologic, renal and liver toxicity.”
