Arthritis Treatment

Jul 20, 2008
Arthritis is the Latin name for inflammation of a joint. This can be part of a generalised arthritic process throughout the body or as a result of trauma and injury to only one joint. An arthritic joint is swollen and painful. It may be red and hot and movement is painful. Around each joint is a capsule which contains the fluid used to lubricate the joint. If the entire joint capsule becomes inflamed, all or most of the movements of that joint will strain a different part of the capsule. So all or most of the movements will be painful or limited. Arthritis leads to a characteristic limitation of movement which varies from joint to joint. The more inflamed the capsule, the greater the limitation of movement. Whatever the cause of arthritis the pattern of limitation of movement is the same.

Joint replacement surgery is a godsend to many, but again, that isn't really treating the arthritis, it is recreating a functional joint after arthritis has already destroyed one you were born with.

Natural arthritis treatment is an alternative to some of the riskier treatment options. One of the more traditional treatments is NSAIDs. These are cox-2 inhibitors which work to relive the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. Because individuals end up taking so many, these are considered dangerous. They can damage internal organs and even cause internal bleeding. Another treatment is joint replacement or surgery and this is risky for obvious reasons. With all surgeries, there is risk and you simply can't be sure if the joint replacement is going to be successful or not.

The ALCAT blood test is one way to discover if you have any food sensitivities and if so, exactly what they are. Selectively eliminating any suspected problem foods from your diet for a week and then systematically reintroducing them, with at least 24 hours between each reintroduction, is another.

It also contains natural cox-2 inhibitors, which are safe to use. Yucca root, which has been used for centuries for joint problems is also an ingredient in this supplement. This is one of the options for people who suffer with arthritis. You want the pain and inflammation to go away. You want to perform daily tasks like you always did before, and you don't want to risk harmful side effects. You don't want to deal with the risks of surgery or the down time that you will experience. You've had enough down time already, right? The truth is that most people recommend natural treatment options. If the risk of treatment outweighs the pain and suffering you experience with arthritis, you should stay away from the treatment, of course. For this reason, natural arthritis treatment is a great idea. Use the information above to help you select a great natural treatment that will give you your life back.
