Myths or Magic? Cures for arthritis – Copper bracelets, Glucosamine & Rituximab

Posted in Arthritis by Head Boy on the December 4th, 2009

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is a painful condition that affects the joints of the body. There are many different types of arthritis and contrary to popular belief it is not an old person’s ailment. Two-thirds of arthritis sufferers are aged between 15 and 65. The most common forms of arthritis are Osteoarthritis (caused by wear and tear of cartilage) and Rheumatoid Arthritis (inflammation due to an overactive immune system).

What causes arthritis?

The causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis are largely unknown but other forms of arthritis can be hereditary or result from an injury or infection.

What can be done to reduce arthritis pain?

Various studies of arthritis sufferers show that most people take over the counter medicines to reduce the pain. These consist of various anti-inflammatory tablets (e.g. Ibuprofen) and pain killers. Other highly publicised remedies for arthritis pain include:

  • Copper and magnetic bracelets. (Is this myth or magic? Find out below.)
  • Diet. Some foods make inflammation worse while others reduce it, so watching what you eat can ease the pain of arthritis. Being overweight can place additional strain on your joints. Body fat can also produce hormones and chemicals that increase inflammation. So keeping weight at normal levels can reduce the pain of arthritis.
  • Rituximab – a revolutionary arthritis treatment.
  • Glucosamine – a natural remedy (nature’s own anti-inflammatory.)

Are copper and magnetic bracelets effective in reducing arthritis pain?

Recent research carried out at York, Hull and Durham Universities (alongside the NHS) have concluded that there is no evidence to support claims that copper or magnetic bracelets reduce the pain of arthritis and have in fact ruled them ‘useless’ with at best a placebo affect for those who claim they offer relief.

What foods can make arthritis pain worse?

Foods that make arthritis pain worse include:

Saturated fats, man-made trans fats and sugary foods (refined carbohydrates).

Saturated fatty foods include fats from animals e.g. :

  • Beef sausages
  • Bacon
  • Chicken skin
  • Ice-cream
  • Butter
  • Whole milk
  • Cheese

Refined carbohydrates:

  • White bread and other baked goods made from white flour
  • White Rice

What foods can ease the pain of arthritis?

Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants are effective in reducing inflammation in the body.

Omega-3 rich foods:

  • Salmon (fresh or canned)
  • Herring
  • Sardines
  • Omega-3 fortified eggs
  • Walnuts
  • Soybeans
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  • Vitamin C
  • Selenium
  • Carotenes

Is new treatment Rituximab effective for arthritis pain?

Rituximab (also used to treat cancer sufferers) is being hailed as a new arthritis cure following reports of a whole year’s relief from pain after just one treatment. This new drug is believed to have allowed chronic arthritis sufferers to live near normal lives after years of suffering. The scientists testing this drug say:

“As a future treatment for severe rheumatoid arthritis, Rituximab looks promising. The results of larger trials over a longer period of time will undoubtedly answer some of our concerns.”

Does Glucosamine help relieve arthritis pain?

Studies into the effectiveness of Glucosamine on reducing the pain of arthritis show that it is more effective than a placebo at reducing inflammation and in some cases performs better than Ibuprofen, but results vary depending upon brand and quantity.

What is Glucosamine?

Glucosamine is a natural compound formed in the body that is produced less as we get older. It assists the production of a molecule called glycosaminoglycan which helps with the formation and repair of various body tissues and cartilage. Glucosamine supplements are made from a substance called Chitin, which is derived from the shells of various sea animals such as shrimp, crab and lobster.
