Yesterday, October 12th, was World Arthritis Day, a time to raise awareness about this debilitating condition that can make everyday tasks challenging. Worldwide, over 350 million people are estimated to suffer from arthritis – a joint disease often associated with ageing.
Arthritis or joint disease involves inflammation in one or more of the joints, and two of the most common types include Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis.
What Are Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis?
Rheumatoid Arthritis causes joint pain and inflammation. It occurs when the immune system doesn’t work correctly and attacks the lining of the joints, called the synovium.
Osteoarthritis is characterised by pain and inflammation in the joints.
There are two types of Osteoarthritis.
The first is Primary Osteoarthritis, which is caused by eating grains, cereals, and other high-sugar foods and drinks.
Secondary Osteoarthritis stems from an injury or other illness.
Conventional treatments for arthritis often include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve muscle and joint pain. However, these may come with various unwanted side effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, decreased appetite, rash, dizziness, headaches and gastrointestinal bleeding.
In more severe cases, corticosteroids may be used to reduce the symptoms of inflammation. Surgery may be needed to repair or replace damaged or deformed joints as a last resort.
However, natural solutions can be used as alternatives to reverse symptoms, and it’s worth considering these options.
Yes, It Is Possible To Find Natural Relief For Arthritis Symptoms
As arthritis is inflammatory, it makes sense that the conditions will benefit from an anti-inflammatory approach. Some essential steps to get started with good joint health recovery include:
- Hydrating the body with 6-8 glasses a day of pure, clean water with sodium bicarbonate*
- Replenishing with the proper nutrients and antioxidants
- Finding natural joint pain relief with Microcurrent stimulation in the form of the HealthPoint ™ Kit electronic acupuncture device.
*Our late founder Robert Redfern called sodium bicarbonate, “The Penny Cure.” ‘In our many glasses of water over the day, we take a pinch of sodium bicarbonate for best health’. Studies show that Sodium Bicarbonate may decrease arthritis-related inflammation in the body so it could be useful against diseases like Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus.
Joint Health Problems? Why You Need More Collagen
Collagen is essential in providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones. There are 28 types of collagens, but the one found in joints and intervertebral discs is known as Collagen Type II.
Taking Collagen Type II is essential as studies show this may help improve joint pain, especially in osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis cases. It is also known to improve the health and overall appearance of the skin. It does this by stimulating your body’s production of joint collagen.
Collagen is commonly found in the connective tissue of animals, so chicken skin, pork skin, beef and fish are usually good sources. However, more research is needed to determine whether collagen-rich foods can help increase your body’s collagen levels, as they may not have the same benefits as supplements.
As collagen decreases with age, so does the risk of degenerative joint disorders such as osteoarthritis. Studies show that taking a Collagen supplement can significantly improve joint stiffness and overall osteoarthritis symptoms. 
Researchers have also suggested that a collagen supplement may accumulate in cartilage and stimulate your tissues to make collagen. This may result in lower inflammation, better joint support, and reduced pain. 
Other research suggests that Collagen may help to prevent bone loss, especially in post-menopausal women. 
While another study indicated that taking collagen can significantly improve muscle mass and strength.
