Arthritis: A Disease or Symptom
In reality arthritis is not, in the strictness sense of the word, a disease, but a manifestation of inflammation in the joint tissue.
It can be caused by nutritional deficiencies, abuse of joints, and injuries.
As to nutrient deficiencies, often a deficiency in B, C, D, and F vitamins are found or a deficiency in Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium, Iron, Copper and/or Sodium.
One must first take an intrinsic look at the function of the Adrenal and Thyroid Gland and observe the Oxidation Rate the body is producing.
Why is the Oxidation Rate So Important
If your Oxidation Rate is fast, it simply means that you have an excessive rate of metabolism and if it is slow, the opposite holds true.
These both are directly controlled by the Adrenal and Thyroid Glands.
If your rate is slow it will manifest itself by excessive loss of potassium and sodium and eventually and decrease in Magnesium and Calcium assimilation in the joint tissue.
Due to the bio-unavailability deposits of Calcium, Calcium will build up on the bone and you have arthritis.
While this can occur with Fast Oxidizers, mineral deposits are more common with Slow Oxidizers.
Often in Slow Oxidizers the buildup of ceruloplasmin, due to copper excess, may contribute to declining sodium levels.
This contributes greatly to the malabsorption of proteins in the connective tissue and joint tissue which eventually leads to low Vitamin C levels, suppressed immune systems and collagen production.
The condition worsens as the Oxidation Rate decreases as other minerals become depleted.
Make a Change
To change these symptoms you must first take a fundamental look at how you assimilate nutrients and increase the absorption of beneficial nutrients.
An Anti-Inflammatory is essential to prevent damage to bone and joints.
Keep a low Carbohydrate diet to maintain moderate fluid levels and decreased inflammation in the body.
Drink plenty of water and get moderate exercise according to your ability.
Finally, replenish, replenish, replenish!
