Sea fish and fish oil - Omega-3 fatty acids are very useful natural remedy for rheumatoid arthritis. It acts against inflammatory processes and reduces the release of cytokines. In this way, this prevents damage of joints.

Barley tea - Two cups of barley tea per day, can reduce a lot of symptoms of arthritis.
