Is there an arthritis diet?
Anywhere from 33% to 75% of people with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) feel that there are some foods that make symptoms, such as stiff and painful joints, better or worse.
However, the scientific evidence is spotty.
“There’s no compelling data that generalizes all patients,” says Nortin M. Hadler, MD, professor of medicine and microbiology-immunology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and author of Worried Sick.

Healthouse Las Dunas, the exclusive health resort, located between Puerto Banus and Estepona, is the first hotel in Spain – and the world – to offer an intelligent mattress to their guests. This is a revolutionary system, with NGmatt – technology, which automatically configures each time adapting to the morphology and positions of the user for optimal rest.
The mattress plays a very important role in preventing sleep disorders and health problems. We spend on average 8 hours a day lying on our mattresses and this period is a very important time for the body to relax, re-charge and rejuvenate both physically and psychologically.
This is the reason why Healthouse Las Dunas, specialists in health & wellbeing, , is offering its guests the innovative NGmatt (The Next Generation mattress) system in several of its rooms. NGmatt is the only intelligent device that is able to compare the data collected during the rest by its sensors in real time, throughout the night, with a medical database and in collaboration with the Austrian laboratory, known worldwide for its studies on sleep, * PRO SCHLAF *, to modify the structure of the mattress, so that it adapts to the user’s needs at all times. The result is a more efficient rest that improves the quality of life. […]Ver más

A number of therapeutic treatments and approaches draw upon the healing properties of water for pain relief, making use of the body’s reaction to hot and cold stimuli. On the whole, cold water is used to stimulate and invigorate, increasing the body’s internal activity, whereas warm water is used to calm and soothe, slowing it down.
