Diagnosis, Causes & Treatment Of Arthritis

by Dr. Jason Barker February 09, 2017

Causes Of Arthritis

  • A broken bone at the joint.
  • Wear and tear (known as osteoarthritis).
  • Autoimmune disease (the body’s immune system attacks the cartilage and damages it).
  • An infection inside the joint.

Symptoms Of Arthritis

  • Joint pain
  • Swelling of the joint
  • Warmth, redness
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased ability to move the joint

Diagnosing Arthritis

In order to get an idea of what exactly is causing the arthritis, you will probably need certain blood tests and x-rays of the joint so your doctor can understand the cause.

Treatment Of Arthritis

The type of treatment you receive for arthritis depends on the kind you have. If it’s from an infection, you’ll need an antibiotic. If it’s from your immune system, there are a lot of powerful drugs that keep your immune system from attacking your joints; these aren't always effective and come with potentially serious side effects. If you have osteoarthritis, this is caused by your cartilage wearing out.

Natural remedies for arthritis stop the inflammation where it starts, and improve your symptoms to where you need less prescription medication (because of the side effects of these drugs, it’s ideal to use as little of the drug possible to control symptoms, but not create unwanted side effects).

The goal of natural arthritis treatment is to stop the inflammation that is causing joint pain, stiffness and swelling.

Meriva is a highly absorbable form of the potent natural anti-inflammatory, curcumin. Curcumin stops inflammation before it begins, by preventing the body from making chemicals that cause inflammation. Curcumin itself isn't well absorbed by the body. That's why we use Meriva - its much better absorbed and is one of the best natural arthritis remedies because of its powerful anti-inflammatory effects.

Joint formula provides added protection for the joints from its anti-inflammatory effects, and it provides glucosamine sulfate to promote cartilage regeneration. If you have any kind of joint problems going on, you should be taking Joint Support.

Another important natural arthritis treatment are Omega 3 fatty acids, which are found in high amounts in Eskimo PurEFA. Omega-3’s are great natural remedies for arthritis because of their ability to control inflammation without the side effects, and their numerous other positive benefits for the brain, heart and skin.

Phytoprofen is great for the aches and pains of arthritis. It contains several natural pain relievers, and won't rot your gut and liver like ibuprofen and acetaminophen will.

Last but not least, if you have arthritis, it's a good idea to find out if you have any hidden food sensitivities that may be contributing to the inflammatory process in your joints. Food sensitivities can cause arthritic pain, among other symptoms. Many people with arthritis find that foods can be a culprit in their symptoms.

Natural remedies for arthritis include diagnosing and removing food sensitivities, and using natural medicines that prevent joint inflammation from occurring. Natural arthritis remedies can help limit joint damage and pain in arthritis.
