Natural Remedies for Osteoarthritis

Natural Remedies for Osteoarthritis

The most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis, causes joint pain and stiffness, Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, M.D., writes in his book, “ Dr. Blaylock’s Prescriptions for Natural Health.” It doesn’t necessarily affect the same joints on both sides of the body.

Those most commonly affected are the knees, hips, neck, lower back, thumbs, and fingers (in the joints closest to the nails).

Its key characteristic is a degeneration of cartilage in joints. Cartilage is hard but slippery tissue that acts as a cushion in the joint, absorbs shock from movement, and allows bones to glide painlessly as the joint moves.

With osteoarthritis, some of the cartilage wears away, narrowing the normal space between bones and allowing them to rub together, which causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Small pieces of cartilage or bone, which can break off and float in the joint space, can cause more pain.

Doctors Witness Amazing Joint Pain Changes

In the past, osteoarthritis was considered a noninflammatory form of arthritis, but recent research shows that it is, in fact, inflammatory, but of a much lower intensity than, say, rheumatoid arthritis. This indolent inflammation weakens the cartilage, resulting in a slow erosion, leaving the joint without its natural protection. Repeated trauma to a joint can trigger the inflammatory process.

Medications to control pain are a major conventional treatment for osteoarthritis, but risks of side effects increase with long-term use, and drugs do not heal degenerated cartilage or other tissue.

Aching Joints? Don't Be a Victim All Your Life

In terms of surgery, when pain and impaired function are severe, joint replacement surgery is often indicated. In recent years, exercise is more frequently recommended, as studies have shown that it reduces pain, increases mobility, and enhances an individual’s overall quality of life.

Supplements can help. The combination of curcumin and quercetin, therapeutic components of plants, makes up one of the most powerful anti-inflammatory substances available, equal to prescription drugs, but without the terrible side effects. Biocell Collagen is a particular form of collagen which, in studies, has been shown to reduce joint destruction in a number of joint diseases, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Doctor Finally Discovers Natural Secret Weapon Against Aging

Collagen is the “glue” that holds tissue together and is a key component of healthy joints. One good product is Collagen JS made by Pure Encapsulations. It contains 1,000 mg of BioCell Collagen in two capsules; take two to four capsules a day, with meals.
