doTERRA Essential Oil Support For:
Bursitis is the inflammation of the fluid-filled sack located close to the joints that provide lubrication for tendons, skin, and ligaments rubbing against the bone. Bursitis is caused by infections, injury, chronic over use, or diseases such as arthritis and gout. It causes tenderness and pain which can limit movement.
Sometimes the cause cannot be determined. Bursitis commonly occurs in the shoulder, knee, elbow, and hip. Other areas that may be affected include the Achilles tendon and the foot.
Chronic inflammation can occur with repeated injuries or attacks of bursitis.
Those with Bursitis have noticed:
- Joint pain and tenderness when you press around the joint
- Stiffness and achiness when you move the affected joint
Swelling, warmth or redness over the joint

Take LifeLong Vitality Pack Supplements daily (they contain Tumeric (very effective anti-inflammatory. In animal studies turmeric was as effective as cortisone, and it didn’t have any side effects)
EAT FRESH ORGANIC PINEAPPLE: Pineapples contain bromelain, an enzyme that studies have shown reduces inflammation in sports injuries, such as bursitis, and reduces swelling
HEEL: If you have bursitis on your heel, you probably got it because of improperly fitting shoes. The solution is simple: Toss the shoes, and put on a better-fitting pair.
KNEES & ELBOWS: Search for ways to adjust the activity or habit that sparked the pain to lessen the stress it puts on your joints. If crawling around in the garden or laying flooring has left you with bursitis of the knee, get yourself a low stool to sit on instead or buy a pair of sturdy, well-cushioned kneepads. If leaning on your elbows while reading has caused your elbows to swell and ache, use a book holder to prop up your reading material and take the weight off your arms.
SHOULDER: Another gentle exercise you can do to restore your shoulder’s range of motion is to crawl your hand up the wall, like a spider. Make it a laid-back spider, however. Anything other than slow, controlled movement within the joint’s natural range of motion during the healing process may do more harm than good.
