What is it?
Osteoarthritis is caused by damage to cartilage within the joints. It can cause the development of bony outgrowths around joints. This can result in two bone surfaces coming into contact causing severe pain. It is most common in weight-bearing joints including ankles, knees, elbows and wrists.
In conventional medicine, the usual approach is to use anti-inflammatory drugs for pain relief, but extended use of pharmaceuticals has been associated with an increase in osteoarthritis, not a reduction. The next resort is to surgery.
Foods high in sodium are known to cause a loss of calcium from the bones, contributing to the development of osteoarthritis. Obesity also increases the risk and progression of the condition.
How do you treat it?
A correct balance between acid- and alkali-forming foods is essential to resisting the condition. Bone growth and repair is, like all cells and tissues in the body, dependant upon the consumption of physical nutrients and the elimination of toxins. The proteins and minerals that make up our bones are constantly being deposited and removed through the body’s natural recycling process, so diet, sunlight, sufficient oxygen, clean water and all the other essential nutrients from nature will help support the deposition of new bone in balance with the removal of old bone.
Maintaining bone density and strength with appropriate exercise may also be key. Check out all the exercise resources on the site (including free stuff) plus the formula of SSMDS supplements below, specifically designed to assist with the relief of this condition as part of Skip’s 10 Commandments 4 Health.
