Frozen shoulder is a painful condition that causes stiffness, reduced mobility and pain in the shoulder. You may try everything (medications, physiotherapy, steroid injections) to relieve the pain, and yet, you are not able to eliminate the pain. Our suggestion is to try a natural treatment!
What Is Frozen Shoulder?
Frozen shoulder, or also known as adhesive capsulitis is an inflammation of the capsule of the humerus. The shoulder joint has an articular capsule of the humerus, a very loose joint capsule. The connective tissue can become stiff and inflamed.
In most cases, frozen shoulder occurs to one shoulder at a time. This can limit the range of motion in the shoulder and you may experience stiffness or tightness.
You will experience constant pain which gets worse with cold weather or in the night. If not treated on time, this condition may lead to an extent when you will not be able to lift your arm.
Drinking anti-inflammatory juices is a natural way to prevent inflammation and other inflammatory conditions.
The following juice recipes are extremely beneficial and can provide amazing results. They will speed up the healing process and eliminate the inflammation in your shoulder.
Beetroot contains carotenoids, betalains, ascorbic acid, phenolic acids and flavonoids which have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and can effectively reduce oxidative stress and chronic inflammation.
- 6 large beetroots – cut off both ends and scrub clean under running water, juice with peel
- 1 lemon – cut off both ends of the lemon and quarter it, juice with peel
- 1-inch ginger root
Take the beetroots, cut off both ends, and scrub clean under water. Cut off both ends of the lemon and quarter it. Put all the ingredients in a juicer and that is it! This should make 1 liter/quart of juice.
Note: If you drink beetroot juice for the first time, make sure to start with a little juice in order to see how your body will respond to it. If there are any reactions, drink plenty of water and less juice. Gradually increase the amount so you can prepare your body for the next time.
