Arthritis General

The inflammation of one or more joints in the body is called Arthritis. Joint is a strong connection between the bones. Joint provides movement and flexibility to the bones. Any disorder of the joint may affect the normal functioning of the joint.
Arthritis is common, it affects people of all ages, sexes and races. Arthritis is more common in women and occurs more frequently as a person gets older. Arthritis is not just a single disease; it is a way of describing a number of joint diseases. It is a condition that involves the inflammation of joints.
Arthritis is a result of breakdown of cartilage. Cartilage is like a cushion between the joints. It role is to protect the joints by absorbing pressure and shock. It enables smooth movement of the joints. Without Cartilage, the bones will rub against one another. This produces stiffness and swelling of joints.
Arthritis is among the top causes of Disability. A person with arthritis finds it difficult to remain physically active. It increases the risk of disorders like Obesity, High Cholesterol and Heart diseases.
Arthritis symptoms may come and go away. They can be mild or severe. The symptoms may get worse over time. The major problem in a person with Arthritis is joint pain. Joint pain in arthritis is a result of inflammation that occurs around the joint. Other arthritis symptoms are
Swollen Joint
Decreased range of motion
Inability to do daily activities
Arthritis may affect the Lungs, Kidneys, Eyes and Heart.

Arthritis types
More than 100 different types of Arthritis are present. Some common forms are:

Inflammatory Arthritis
The immune system protects against various harmful substances. It fights diseases and infections by producing internal inflammation. When something goes wrong with the immune system, it mistakenly attacks the joints with uncontrolled inflammation. It causes joint erosion and may harm the internal organs as well. Three main forms of Inflammatory Arthritis are Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis.

It is the most common type of arthritis. Osteoarthritis may affect both larger and smaller joints. The joints of hands, feet, wrist, knee, hip and back are affected. Osteoarthritis initially affects the Cartilage. Cartilage is a flexible connective tissue covering the bones. It provides cushion to the bones. In the absence of cartilage the bones may rub against one another causing pain, stiffness and swelling. Over the time the condition worsens. The pain becomes chronic, inflammation arises and the joints lose strength. The probability of developing Osteoarthritis increases with:
Growing age
Family History
Excessive Weight
Previous injury to Joints
When the symptoms are mild, they can be managed by balancing activity with rest, Hot and Cold therapy, Regular physical activity, Maintaining a healthy weight and strengthening the Joint muscles.

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a problem of the body’s own immune system. The immune system starts attacking the body tissues. It damages the joint lining and the cartilage. It eventually causes the erosion of the two opposing bones. The joints in the elbows, hands, wrist and knees are affected the most. If not treated it leads to severe deformity. It mostly occurs in people aged 20 and above. The exact cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis is not known.

Psoriatic Arthritis
Psoriasis gives rise to Psoriatic arthritis. The formation of red Skin patches followed by arthritis is Psoriasis Arthritis. The symptoms include stiffness, swelling and continuous joint pain. If left untreated it may cause permanent disability and loss of functioning of hand.

Dear Herbpathy
I am 33 and i have been diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis after having my 2nd baby. I have pain and stiffness in fingers, hands and wrists all day, especially in the morning.
I have been recommended some Chinese pills (arthro-ace and fong ton pills) but they have a lot of herbal ingredients that act as blood thinners and I am not sure if I should take them. I also read that they include other substances that are not listed on box.

What natural remedies do you recommend? Is this caused by insufficient or bad blood? Can inflammation of joints be actually cured with these remedies or do they just make the pain go away?

Thank you.

Dear Lina

There are a number of causes of Arthritis. Arthritis is differentiated into four types. We have explained all the four types of Arthritis and different causes of Arthritis.
The remedial treatment for Arthritis is Ginseng Siberian. Buy capsules and take one capsule every day at least for one. Observe the results and continue if it suits you.
Apart from this use Yarrow essential oil. Mix Yarrow Essential oil with Castor Oil. Heat the mixture. Massage with this oil on the affected Joints.
Yarrow has Antiarthritic properties and Castor oil has antiinflammatory properties.
Both these herbs work in Harmony and cure Arthritis.

Please consult your Doctor before taking any kind of medications.

Dear Babita
I suggest you to eat 10 to 15 cherries in a day. They are a rich content of Potassium and Magnesium.
Massage the affected areas with sesame oil for 10 to 15 min.
And add 2 to 3 cups of Epsom salt to hot water tub and soak your body for 15 to 20 min. It will give you relief from pains.

Dear Kanwal
The remedial treatment for Arthritis is Ginseng Siberian. Buy capsules and take one capsule every day for 15 days. Observe the results and continue if it suits you.
Second, You mix Yarrow Essential oil with Castor Oil. Warm the mixture. Massage with this oil on the affected Joints.
Yarrow has Antiarthritic properties and Castor oil has antiinflammatory properties.
Both these herbs work in Harmony and cure Arthritis. Please consult your Doctor before taking any kind of medications.
