Up to 23.5 million Americans suffer from some form of autoimmune disease, a grouping of over 80 different chronic diseases marked by the body's immune system reacting improperly and attacking its own cells. These diseases can be debilitating and even life-threatening, and they require careful, regular management to handle flareups of inflammation and pain.
Many patients dealing with chronic pain from autoimmune diseases have chosen Mountain Ice to help combat their pain and inflammation. Read on for a look at some common autoimmune conditions and a look at how Mountain Ice can help!
About 4 million Americans have fibromyalgia, a condition that causes widespread pain and abnormal pain perception processing, as well as fatigue, sleep problems, and even emotional distress. Much is still yet to be understood about the disease, as even its causes are not totally known yet. Fibromyalgia's symptoms can be life-altering, as the pain, stiffness, fatigue, depression, sleep disorder, and memory problems it can cause seriously inhibit day-to-day functioning.
Treating fibromyalgia can be an unclear process, as the causes of the disease are unknown. The widespread muscle pain it causes is easy to locate, however. Mountain Ice cools the top layer of the skin, which then numbs and blocks pain signals to the brain, providing temporary relief of muscle pain.
The combination of natural ingredients in Mountain Ice Pain Relief Gel also facilitates absorption of anti-inflammatory and pain relieving ingredients deep into the muscles and joints, allowing for increased blood flow and reduced swelling at the source of pain and not just at the surface of the skin.
Lupus is a systemic autoimmune disease that occurs when your body's immune system attacks its own tissues and organs. This can affect many different systems in your body: joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, blood cells, and even the brain. It can be difficult to diagnose due to its variety of potential affected areas and how easily the symptoms are mistaken for other conditions.
To help reduce the severity of lupus symptoms, many medical professionals prescribe similar treatments and lifestyle changes as those prescribed for neuropathy, including pain relievers, improved diet, increased sleep and physical activity. Mountain Ice's capacity for pain relief allows patients to more easily engage in physical activity, but it also does so much more. Thanks to its potential to reduce both the pain sensation and the inflammation that causes it, Mountain Ice can be a valuable option to explore for anyone seeking to reduce chronic pain.
Autoimmune arthritis, of which rheumatoid arthritis is the most common form, are chronic inflammatory disorders that can affect not only your joints, but sometimes a wide variety of body systems, including the skin, eyes, lungs, heart, and blood vessels. They're considered autoimmune disorders, and occur when your immune system mistakenly attacks your own body's tissues.
Unlike the damage of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of your joints, causing a painful swelling that can eventually result in bone erosion and joint deformity. The inflammation that is associated with rheumatoid arthritis is what can damage other parts of the body as well. While new types of medications have improved treatment options dramatically, severe rheumatoid arthritis can still cause physical disabilities.
Autoimmune arthritis is often treated with a special class of drug called a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD). However, this doesn't mean you can't help manage the disease with other treatments, including Mountain Ice. Each ingredient contained in Mountain Ice has anti-inflammatory as well as anti-oxidant properties, all of which help to increase blood flow, reduce swelling, and slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis and other forms of autoimmune arthritis.
