-Osteo refers to joints and bones that go through degenerative changes via a breakdown in cartilage.
-Bone loss occurs over time and mechanical destruction (i.e. limiting range of motions and creating difficulty in daily tasks).
-Symptoms: Pain, stiffness, weak bone structure, joint swelling (especially in knees, hips, neck, fingers & low back).
-Causes: Wear and tear on joints with age, and chronic inflammation due to poor diet, obesity, hormonal changes, stress, and chronic allergies.
-An autoimmune disease in which the body attacks its own tissues, triggering inflammation in the joint lining (destroying collagen), which over time creates muscle and joint weakness.
Symptoms: Aching, heated joints and redness (inflammation), swelling and throbbing in the muscles, pain in fingers and hands and wrists, fatigue weakness, and sometimes a fever.
Causes: Unknown; However, there are significant triggers such as diet (sugar creates inflammation), stress, a negative nature in a person, & a weak immune system can lend to onset.
-Lose weight if you are not in your healthy range of BMI (less pressure on the body = less pain).
-Eat joint friendly foods (fruits & berries, veggies, whole grains, spices, herbal teas, omega 3 sources such as fish, walnuts, avocados, flax & olive oil).
-Stay away from Inflammatory Foods (sugars, preservatives, meat, dairy).
-Consistency with Internal (diet & supplements) & External (topical aids/oils/creams & body work) Therapy.
