Fighting Aging and Joint Pain

By Tuesday, 04 October 2016 04:22 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Since the time of Ponce de Leon, human beings have been searching for a way to stop the process of aging. And while we know it is impossible to completely stop or reverse this process — scientists are constantly developing new methods to keep people feeling young.

Some data suggest an holistic approach to the problem of aging. Panexitrol is a pill that incorporates 31 vitamins and minerals that replace the loss of these nutrients as people age. The preliminary data suggests that it is a very effective — and because it is all-natural, there should be no side effects. On the bright side, it helps with common symptoms of aging such as weak bones, aching joints, trouble breathing, and other problems.

Another area of holistic medicine that has shown promise is treatment of joint pain. A product called Triple Joint Relief includes three substances that seem to offer significant relief: Silymarin, fights inflammation in the body; boswillia helps fight the effects of MMP3 enzyme which contributes to joint pain; and curcumin, which has been used for years for joint problems.

The data indicate the problem with older joints is not just wear and tear, but in fact there are inflammatory responses that continue an incident that was the original cause of joint pain.

Another development is review of the actual benefit of steroid injections for joint pain. In a study of elbow joint pain (often called “tennis elbow”), researchers performed two steroid injections three weeks apart in one group, while using a placebo injection in another group, and no treatment in a third group.

The long-term evaluation showed that at six months the group that had steroid injections actually suffered more pain in the elbow than those who got placebo or no injections at all. More than a year after the study period, the same results held true.

In addition, if your physician is suggesting that you get a steroid injection or a steroid medication, maybe you should ask about the complications and side effects. What is frequently not mentioned is that steroids can produce asceptic nycrosis, or a death of bone tissue due to lack of oxygen supply. This can result in the need for joint replacement.

The effect of steroids on bones has been demonstrated in children who have taken these medications for a number of conditions. What happens is that they usually remain short in stature because the steroid effects the capillary blood flow in the ephiserial area in boney structures. As mentioned, this can produce asceptic nycrosis (bone death).

Therefore, be sure to discuss with your doctor the side effects of steroids, in particular as it relates to the bones.

Finally, data are coming out on the ability to treat Type 2 diabetes with no more than a change in eating and exercise habits. I have written about his before, but now additional sources are pointing out the data that Type 2 diabetes can note only be preventing, but even be reversed with the proper modifications in diet and exercise.

This additional data also indicates that certain starches that are harmful — particularly white starch — while others are beneficial for helping control Type 2 diabetes.

Remember that holistic medicine always approaches problems by treating the underlying cause and not just the symptoms — the majority of doctors in the mainstream medical establishment do.
