Osteoarthritis can be very handicapping and painful, you will thus find on the market of good advices and good products, but you also will meet much “remedies” miracles eccentric. It thus appeared useful to us to make a small round on this pathology with our personal vision. Therefore, your good sense and you listen use do not believe us above all.
The current treatments are based on the assumption of responsibility of the pain, the weight loss and the muscular exercise in order to better support the articulations. Super but it is important to understand that ALL the forms d’arthrite and d’arthrose have a common cause: the ignition. What creates this ignition? Which is the cause? Let us try to develop the subject a little.
The major cause of the ignition: a bad food
From a point of view total and holistic, it would be time to understand that the food which we eat plays a central role in the inflammatory answers which will create chronic diseases and degenerative.
Chronic diseases and degenerative?
A dentist of last century, Dr. Weston Price had made besides in 1939 a parallel shouting between ethnos groups having kept their traditional diet and not having a problem of orthodontics whereas the members of this ethnos group changing their lifestyle for the Western diet had serious problems of teeth and maximum-facial degeneration. From there to extend the subject of orthodontics to the systemic degeneration of the body is the starting assumption of the foundation of Dr. Price (Price-Pottenger Foundation) who continued until today and who fights so that we understand that one should not neglect what we put at the end of our fork.
It should be understood that our body is regenerated permanently, a cut heals, a muscular breakdown is repaired, a broken bone is resoldered. With good food and nutrients, we stimulate our capacity of auto–cure without having to take harmful products. If it is regenerated unceasingly why do we thus have chronic diseases and degenerative?
It is true that we live in a toxic environment with products and forms of food which did not exist there is less than 100 years whereas our bodies adapted during several tens of centuries to a natural environment.
Chlorine, fluorine, aluminium, pesticides, antibiotics, medicamentous residues, food allergens (most known are the gluten or milk) are everywhere and penetrate very easily in our body.
The last study of Harvard Nutrition promotes a food rich in fruit and vegetables to keep a body in good health thus avoiding or slowing down the degeneration of the body. Certain private clinics even dare to say that 80% of food coming from fruit and vegetables are even more effective when it is a question of detoxifying the body and of eliminating the ignitions which could be at the base of the degeneration creating the majority of the cases of osteoarthritis.

The guiding idea is that they are the fresh fruit and vegetables which bring the most nutrients and which require less energy to be digested. They will alkalize the body but, actually, it is the fact of having less waste cellular (those being acid) which will make it possible the lymph to be less acid.
The food more difficult to digest based on slow sugars (bread, pastes, pizzas, etc…) or the proteins will create, on the contrary, much waste and will follow an inflammatory activity which will be noxious for the body and which will have to be expressed… yes, you start to understand… in the lymphatic system. The lymph, which is charged to transport and eliminate waste towards the kidneys, will have too much acid waste and the body will return in acidosis. One can understand very well the effect of acids on an articulation, it “flaring” the fabrics, creating an ignition from where a tissue degeneration which will create a chronic problem.
One has the feeling to speak the flow about waste waters, of plumbing and of septic tanks but it is exactly that. The lymphatic system is our system of evacuation of waste. When that stops, it is as at the house, there is damage!
The main cause of osteoarthritis EAST the food but this acid process of accumulation is reversible, it is necessary for that well to understand what is acidifying for the body and to avoid it during a few weeks in order to relieve its arthrosic pains. Live salads!!
The overweight is a worsening factor of osteoarthritis
Each percentage of IMG to the top of our weight of form augment the arrival of the osteoarthritis of 15%. It is enormous.
The additional weight will prevent the good drainage and the regeneration of fabrics of your articulations.
Because of this bad regeneration (with loss of elasticity) and from forces of contacts more important, wear will start.
In the populations with a healthy food and digeste, osteoarthritis arrives much later in the life whereas to Occident it appears as from 45 years, one detects of it even the appearance in the spinal column of certain teenagers.
The more one digs, the more one falls down on the food.
Food supplements to relieve osteoarthritis
Plants and minerals can help us:
- The sulphate of glucosamine/chondroïtine, proportioned well, can help certain people suffering from osteoarthritis.
- the hyaluronic acid, can also help certain cases of osteoarthritis, because of its hydrating properties.
- Silicon is important and a supplementation is always interesting after a certain age (around 40 years)
- The curcurma with an optimal absorption of curcumin has effects really interesting on osteoarthritis of the knee
- We also tested mixtures of extract of spagyric plants with which we had excellent results (on sale on masantebio.fr).
Better forms of exercise to relieve osteoarthritis:
It is necessary to move, move, move because, as we saw, the ignition depends on the waste disposal via the lymph. The flow of the lymphatic system is thus done by peristalsis via muscular contractions. To do physical exercise is of the greattest importance to make circulate the lymph and regenerate its fabrics.
The most adequate way for the people suffering from osteoarthritis to gain in force and cardiovascular endurance with a very weak risk of a new wear of the articulations is the watery exercise.
The watery courses of aerobics or swimming can help to burn excesses of body grease. Jogging or walk in water with middle height is also a very effective simple way but to burn calories without imposing a heavy burden on the articulations.
The stretchings carefully or yoga are also advised for the people reached of osteoarthritis in order to recover part of the amplitude of the movements.
There are many sports which do not request the articulations too much, seek that which is appropriate to you best.
Walk thus remains the basic exercise support it instead of taking your car.
To reduce the exposure to the pollutants and to purge your body of “poisons”
Even if you have a healthy food, charged with antioxydants, if you are exposed to elevated levels of pollutants of the environment such as mercury, lead, aluminium and the inorganic compounds out of plastic, you can develop osteoarthritis all the same.
The toxic environment comes from what one eats, which one drinks, which one breathes but also… what one thinks or at least the expression of our thoughts in a form emotive. Indeed, the stress which will saturate the body with cortisol (hormone of the stress) is a champion to stop our plumbing whereas simple exercises of management of stress could help to eliminate accumulation from it.
There still there are the multiple ones cleans natural and of exercises which will enable you to eliminate toxins and poisons in your body. The fast of it is besides a very effective method and… not very expensive!
You know now how to relieve osteoarthritis
The holistic options such as acupuncture, the chromatothérapie, chiropractic medicine and other therapies can help to relieve the joint pains or muscular, even in the animals.
The main thing to be retained is in 5 points: 1 food, 2 food, 3/alimentation, 4 exercises and 5 to use the friendly plants.
