Joint health is extremely important if exercise is going to be continue to be fun. Joint health starts with a consideration of healthy joints. In healthy joints, the tip of each bone has a cushion layer made of cartilage just like the gristle at the tip of the bone of a chicken leg. The cartilage layer in healthy joints protect the tip of the bone as it rubs against the tip of the next bone. Healthy joints also have a “water bed” of fluid between the two bones depicted in the diagram to the left as the blue area labelled synovial fluid.
Why Does Joint Health Decline?
To understand the decline of joint health, think of a water bed. If you have too much water, the waterbed becomes very hard. So too the synovial fluid feels hard to the tips of the bones if there is too much fluid in the synovial fluid compartment. This can the rapid decline of joint health leading to stiff and possible painful joints. This can also damage the cartilage at the tips of the bone. In the case of metal toxicity, metal can be stored in the joint acting like sandpaper, destroying the joint. A lack of minerals can cause the joints to lose their elasticity and become brittle. This can lead to many needless injuries and unwanted pain. You will know if your minerals are low by the amount of your gray hair. The same minerals that the joints need are also used by the hair to make color pigments. Therefore, when the gray hair appears, think “troubled joints.”
Damaged cartilage can look like this picture to the left. Notice the area of bone peeking through the hole in the cartilage that looks reddened. Whenever this reddened area rubs against the next bone, an excruciating amount of pain can be felt.
How Is Joint Health Attained?
Joint health can be attained naturally. In a study at the Veteran’s Hospital in New York, 29 patients agreed to postpone their joint replacement surgery to try a natural treatment. All 29 had complete healing of their joints and no a single one of them needed the surgery. At Optimum Health we do not diagnose or treat disease. Instead, we try to get to the root of a person health issues. We have found that giving cartilage in imitation of this study has brought our clients the same type of results.
We also give lecithin as it allows your body to cleanse your joints of the arthritic inflammation. If gray hair is present, we also recommend a foods rich in minerals along with a good mineral supplement. Finally, we add the ionic foot bath process that our clients always say helps their joints to feel better immediately. You simply relax with your feet in a warm bath of water and allow this medically approved equipment to help your joints and many other parts of your body release the toxins that can cause so many problems.
You will get vitamins, minerals and a protein drink to help fuel this whole process. Of special importance is the cartilage and lecithin that you will be given to help your body heal your joints.
