People who suffer from various forms of arthritis have claimed to experience pain relief when they wear copper bracelets. Is copper a legitimate treatment for arthritis or is it a product of the placebo effect whereby people psychosomatically heal themselves, but think it's the copper? Scientists are still learning more and more about the effectiveness and various applications of copper.

Many homeopathic physicians prescribe very small doses of copper to patients with various forms of arthritis and more often than not, their patients report positive results. Copper cream for arthritis is one of the more recent forms of non-traditional treatment. When applying copper cream, however, users are advised to apply the cream to the same area on the opposite side of the body to prevent fluctuations in blood pressure.

The Benefits of Copper Cream for Arthritis

Discomfort, soreness, and stiffness associated with arthritis have been known to disappear within minutes after applying copper cream. In some patients, the degenerative process linked to arthritis has reversed. Researchers and scientists aren't exactly sure how this occurs, but they partially attribute it to copper's ability to balance catabolic and anabolic processes in the human body.

Copper cream can usually be applied several times a day with no real side effects and no real irritation to the skin. In addition, it does not impede or detract from other forms of treatment or therapy so it can be used in conjunction with other medications and treatments. Copper cream may actually help your body react to the treatment and/or medication you are currently administering to combat your arthritis. If your body doesn't react well to copper cream or it is ineffective for you, you may want to try emu oil, another natural topical ointment that is said to work wonders in arthritis sufferers.
