Featured Content from The Arthritis & Glucosamine Resource Center

    1. Rheumatoid Arthritis
    Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease causing inflammation and deformity of the joints. Other problems throughout the body (systemic problems) may also develop, including inflammation of blood vessels (vasculitis), the development of bumps (called rheumatoid nodules) in various parts of the body, lung disease, blood disorders, and weakening of the bones (osteoporosis).
    3. Osteoarthritis: Explained Simply
    The first sign of osteoarthritis is the deterioration of healthy cartilage, therefore, understanding cartilage is crucial to understanding osteoarthritis and how you can effectively ease your osteoarthritis pain.

What a difference a pound makes

By J. R. Rogers

I was reading a news report the other day that I found a little bit surprising. It said that somewhere between 35% and 50% of all doctor visits involve musculoskeletal issues. Even though I know that arthritis is a major problem I had no idea that these numbers were so high.

The pounds you take off make a huge difference

This same report said that in women the loss of as little as eleven (11) pounds can reduce arthritis pain by as much as 50%. That is a major gain on the pain front for very little effort. Of course, as I have said for many years weight loss slows the progression of arthritis as well.

Light exercise and how it helps

You do not have to go out and run any marathons. All it takes is a little effort on your part to shed those excess pounds. And, the very exercises I have recommended for years will do the job. Walking, swimming and bicycle riding are all beneficial. And, they are low-impact so they do not generally pose as many risks for injuries as more challenging exercise does.

Exercise and synovial fluid

What happens when you exercise is that synovial fluid is drawn into your joint structures. That is beneficial to the joints but if it stays in the joint structure too long it can cause cracking of cartilage. Of course, that is not the result you are looking for. All you have to do to avoid that is ice down the joints after you finish exercising. This moves the synovial fluid over to the lymphatic system to dispose of it. And, this should be done within about ten minutes after you finish exercising according to this report.

Omega fish oils

These are beneficial in helping to reduce the symptoms (joint pain) that arthritis causes. That is why we add them to Syn-flex®. We want you to gain all the ground you can in your fight to alleviate arthritis pain.

The good news is that this study confirms something else I have been saying for years. Arthritis may be an inevitable consequence but it can be controlled and in many instances avoided altogether.

Think about the simple things you can do to help yourself. After all, it is a small price to pay to beat back the effects of arthritis.

See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.

This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.

If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.

The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
