Relieve Inflammation and Pain from Arthritis – The Real Cause (and Cure) of Osteoarthritis Discovered
Osteoarthritis is often called “wear and tear arthritis”, because it’s traditionally considered to be caused by strain on joints. This can be caused by either overworking them with repeated movement (carpenter hammering) or by being overweight.
But this is far from the truth, according to a new study published in the Journal Nature Communications.
Which makes sense, because why then would the wrists of an overweight person hurt so much? Osteoarthritis should only affect the knees, right?
The researchers collected data from previous studies, including the results of stool samples from 1,427 people, which included information about the bacteria in their intestines.
Researchers wanted to find out whether osteoarthritis pain was partly caused by obesity-related gut bacteria. This would explain why joints that don’t carry weight are such common victims of osteoarthritis.
Four types of bacteria from the streptococcus family were more prevalent in the people with arthritis pain compared to those without it.
After examining the magnetic resonance images of knees from the previous studies they also found those with the most arthritis pain exhibited the most inflammation, suggesting the streptococcus family of gut bacteria could quite possibly cause arthritis pain by promoting inflammation.
This shows what we have been preaching for years – that all types of arthritis, even osteoarthritis, are caused by chronic inflammation. And the way to cure arthritis is to eliminate inflammation from the inside.
Relieve Inflammation and Pain from Arthritis – This Sport Causes Arthritis
Sports are healthy, right?
For the most part, yes, but a new study from the University of Oxford and the University of Bath shows that one type of sport directly leads to arthritis.
And it’s one that is becoming very popular.
So please warn people who are at risk of arthritis against playing this sport.
The researchers identified 259 former male elite rugby players over the age of 50 and, through questionnaires, compared their health outcomes with those of 5,186 participants of the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing and 2,981 participants from the Health Survey for England.
Compared to the general public, former players were:
- Four times more likely to suffer osteoarthritis.
- Six times more likely to have had a joint replacement.
- Three times more likely to have osteoporosis.
- Twice as likely to struggle with anxiety.
In addition, former players were more likely than the general population to report problems with mobility, pain and discomfort, self-care, and usual activities.
The reason for this is the huge number of injuries from which elite players suffer compared to non-contact sports and lower-level rugby participation.
This is therefore not just an insulated problem with rugby but something to be concerned about with all high-impact sports.
Despite this, 95% of the former players said they would do it all over again even if they knew the risk. And 78% would encourage their kids to do the same.
Relieve Inflammation and Pain from Arthritis – Why Arthritis Patients Suffer This Unrelated Infection
People with arthritis are more likely than the healthy population to suffer from infections, including potentially deadly ones that can put you in hospital on intravenous antibiotics.
So why does this happen to people with arthritis?
To answer this, American researchers analyzed the data of arthritic patients registered on the Corrona registry between 2003 and 2015, comparing people with different levels of disease activity to see how important it is to keep arthritis under control.
They published the study in the journal Arthritis Care Research.
In this case, they used the commonly used clinical disease activity index to separate the patients into those…
– with sustained remission (3,355 people),
– those with sustained low disease activity (3,912 people),
– and those with sustained moderate to high disease activity (5,062 people).
Overall, there were 1.03 infections per 100 patient-years in the remission group, 1.92 in the low disease activity group, and 2.51 in the high disease activity group.
For this reason, it is incredibly important to keep your arthritis under control, especially to the point where you are in remission and the condition is mostly dormant.
Those who took drugs that suppress the immune system had twice the risk of infection of the others, and in their case remission did not help.
So how can you put your arthritis in remission without suffering the side effects of medications?

This post is from the Arthritis Strategy Program. It was created by Shelly Manning, a former arthritis sufferer and a health consultant.
A Brief Background on the Author
Like you, Shelly Manning also suffered from arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis. This was due to her weight and desk job. Her condition eventually took a toll on her relationship with her (former) husband.
It was when she went to Hong Kong that she met Janerdquo, an old woman who owned the restaurant where she ate. Janerdquo supposedly offered her a bowl of a weird-smelling soup, which helped ease her joint pain. She ate there each day for 10 days until she was completely healed from arthritis.
Shelly Manning decided to research this natural remedy and to create a step-by-step treatment plan to others who are suffering from different types of arthritis, such as gout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and psoriatic arthritis.
That’s why she created “The Arthritis Step By Step Strategy.” According to her claims, this unique strategy will get rid of joint pain and stiffness, repair your damaged joints, and treat the underlying cause of your arthritis.
Shelly teamed up with Christian Goodman, the owner of Blue Heron Health News, a publishing company that aims to help people to take responsibility for their own health by using natural health alternatives for preventing arthritis in fingers and knees naturally.
