Arthritis is number one cause of disability in America. If you are middle-aged or older, you most likely suffer from joint pain or arthritis. The normal wear and tear on your joints can cause inflammation. This makes moving around and even getting up difficult and painful.
Did you know that taking pain killers or anti-inflammatory medication can actually make your arthritis worse? These drugs are only treating the symptoms of joint inflammation and pain. They are not curing the problem. You can begin to heal your joints and get rid of joint pain.
Arthritis is not a direct consequence of aging. Over the counter pain relievers or anti-inflammatory drugs can make arthritis worse. They definitely do not cure your arthritis. If you are taking pain killers and other drugs to mask the symptoms of arthritis, you need to consider: Do you want to take these drugs for the rest of your life and still suffer?
What are some of the main causes of arthritis?
- Infection from some types of bacteria
- Poor diet and specifically processed sugars
- Heavy metal toxicity
- Low or imbalanced hormones
