Arthritis, by definition, is caused when a joint or joints become inflamed. From there, the diagnosis of arthritis gets more complicated. Arthritis can appear in the body in a number of different forms, though one underlying factor links all the conditions together: chronic pain.
Since the condition is inflammatory, the majority of arthritis sufferers will also struggle with chronic inflammation. As such, arthritis is considered a rheumatic disease. Arthritis may be accompanied by pain in the joints, inflammation, and swelling. Cases of arthritis can vary by affected region, pain level, damage to the body, and length of episodes.
According to the Arthritis Foundation: “Arthritis is actually a complex family of musculoskeletal disorders consisting of more than 100 different diseases or conditions that can affect people of all ages, races and genders.”
ARTHRITIS AROUND THE WORLD
Arthritis remains the top cause of disability in Western countries. There are more than 175 million adults around the world who suffer from the condition. Roughly 10 per cent of the global population over the age of 60 has already exhibited some symptoms of osteoarthritis – the most common arthritic joint disorder. Osteoarthritis remains the fourth leading cause of Years Lived with Disability (YLDs). There are 20 million people around the world so crippled by arthritis that it limits their daily mobility.
As the condition progresses, it will continue to affect physical activity level. Many arthritis sufferers may become homebound. Yet the number of arthritis diagnoses climbs year after year and is responsible for over one million hospital visits, according to Disabled World statistics.
Though the condition is often associated with the elderly, arthritis does not just occur in old age. Two thirds of arthritis sufferers are under the age of 65. The condition affects more than 300,000 children.
COUNTERACT DAMAGING INFLAMMATION
Arthritis is an inflammatory disorder. The only effective treatment for the condition should address underlying inflammation that causes pain, swelling, and joint damage again and again.
A number of treatments are recommended to ease discomfort associated with arthritis. In many cases, medical intervention may be required. Prescription drugs like pain relievers, anti- inflammatories, and disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs may be used to minimize pain and slow the progression of the disease.
Yet if the underlying cause of inflammation isn’t addressed, drugs will offer little help and could make matters worse, in some cases. Long-term, continuous prescription drug use will poison the body. Multiple arthritic drugs may have to be administered at different times in different doses to have any effect on a body beaten down by the condition.
Common arthritic drugs have been linked to nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, headache, drowsiness, and gastrointestinal bleeding. In those with lupus, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can also cause kidney damage. Corticosteroids used to decrease arthritic inflammation can offer temporary relief, though the drugs suppress immune health even when administered in small doses.
“The Miracle Enzyme” Serrapeptase can provide relief for painful inflammation. If you or someone you love is already on a drug regimen for arthritis, the natural, anti-inflammatory enzyme Serrapeptase can help to improve health and wean off prescription drugs. A powerful enzyme like Serrapeptase should be explored for arthritis rehabilitation far before drug side effects occur or surgery is needed.
When the natural enzyme Serrapeptase is ingested, it moves through the body to destroy and digest dead tissue. This therapeutic process defends the body against inflammation. It has been known to directly alleviate a number of painful symptoms associated with chronic pain conditions, including arthritis. Once Serrapeptase has done its work, the body’s natural self-healing system can repair damage to arthritic joints.
One chronic arthritis sufferer describes their experience with anti-inflammatory Serrapeptase: “I got off Celebrex two years ago after my twin sister died from a perforated bowel from taking Celebrex and I have been taking Serrapeptase for two years now and need no other medication.
I have no sore joints anymore from my Osteoarthritis, only a little stiffness first thing in the morning. I am 62 years old and still do everything I did at 40. I just wish my sister had known about Serrapeptase. This information needs to get out to the people who are treating people with arthritis because the drug companies will obviously be against it.”
RELIEVE PAIN AND RESTORE MOBILITY
The last step in the arthritic rehabilitation process involves restorative therapy. A number of natural treatments are recommended for arthritis discomfort, including yoga, meditation, and Tai Chi. While these practices are certainly good for a balanced lifestyle, electro- acupressure is a proven alternative treatment that can be used for long-lasting arthritis relief.
Electro-acupressure uses a micro- current to stimulate targeted pain points mapped throughout the body. This simple device will activate trigger points for a short period of time. It is user-friendly and can be used freely without medical advice to relieve major symptoms and minor aches and pains of arthritis. Arthritic knees especially are an easily rehabilitated pain condition.
One arthritis and fibromyalgia sufferer describes her experience with electro- acupressure: “I would like to take this opportunity to say how much I find the HealthPointTM acupressure device very helpful. I have had arthritis from the age of 12 and now for the past 4 years have developed fibromyalgia. However, with alternative treatment and supplements, I am still keeping active at age 72 and manage a large house and 1 acre of garden very well, by spacing out my energy sensibly.”
