Arthritis Products and Accessories
The following is a short compilation of arthritis products and accessories that I use for my own healing, and that I want to share because I think they could also help you with yours. Under each product are short explanations as to how they might help and a link that will take you to the product on Amazon.
Yoga Props: Blocks, Bolsters, Straps
Yoga blocks are for the restorative bridge and help to open and release low back.
Yoga bolsters are for restorative twist and help to open and release the lower back as well as the rest of the spine.
Yoga straps assist in a variety of stretches.
Massage balls help you in rolling out hard to reach muscles and rolling out deep tension places, which can relieve pain and promote flexibility.
Foam rollers, much like massage balls, help you roll out muscles and are good for large areas of the body such as quads, IT bands, and the upper back.
Resistance bands give resistance for exercising without placing weight and impact on joints. They can also help with stretching.

The Plantpower Way
The Plantpower Way is a health-conscious cookbook that provides great tasting, plant based recipes. The book contains lots of great information about nutrition and is helpful for anyone looking to start a plant-based diet, or just introduce more plant-based meals into their diet.
Large coloring books and large crayons have been designed for people with painful finger and hand joints. These coloring books and crayons are perfect for all ages because they are big and have less detailed pages, yet they help the mind to focus on the present. They are an incredibly helpful activity when it comes to relieving stress.
An aromatherapy diffuser is a great way to use essential oils and can create a nice atmosphere for sleeping when pain makes it hard to sleep.
