Knee Arthritis is simply a word that describes pain associated with inflammation and stiffness of joints. While there are many causes to this, the fact is when we alter our internal health for the better we can lower inflammation, increase movement and get our full quality of life back.
Typically doctors will look at X-Rays or MRIs and state that if you have normal joint degeneration this constitutes arthritis, which is simply not the case. Changes in the joints that include changes in the shape of joints is fairly normal. In fact many people with no joint changes have joint pain and many times people with severe joint degeneration have no pain and fairly full function.
I find there are two other factors which are much more important: First, our inner environment as it relates to inflammation; and second, our internal stress levels and emotional health.
In this video we will cover 5 Supplements that Help with Knee Pain:
Turmeric @ 500mg 2-3x/day. Turmeric has been around for thousands of years in Ayurvedic and Choinese medicine. It treats arthritis by blocking cytokines and pro-inflammatory enzymes. It is a COX-2 inhibitor just like Motrin. A 2010 study demonstrated that a curcumin supplement gave solid improvement in function and pain in 100 patients with knee arthritis. In a 2012 study, curcumin was shown to reduce joint pain and swelling in patients with active RA as compared to a drug called diclofenac. Take it as Curcumin to help with joint pain.
Boswellia – 200-300 mg 2-3xday. Boswelia is ancient frankincense and has been used for thousands of years. Great anti inflammatory herb and works perfectly with Curcumin. Instead of the COX 2 inhibition, it inhibits the 5-LOX pathway. This is very special because it really helps with pain and shuts this dangerous enzyme off when its too high. Has huge implications for pain, tissue repair, cancer. 5-Lox makes leukotrienes. Has a powerful effect on some chemicals that when out of balance can ratchet up inflammation – TNF, cytokines, etc. German scientists have demonstrated that boswellia extract is a more potent inhibitor of the enzymes that encourage cancer growth in humans than are certain chemotherapy drugs. May be effective against some forms of leukemia. May be effective against some meningioma cells and tumors. May be effective against prostate cancer. Helps with atherosclerosis. Huge helper for pain and degenerative conditions that are associated with inflammation.
Bromelain is an enzyme that eats up inflammation and its by products. Very well studies enzyme that comes from food (papaya). May fight some cancers. Respiratory problems like bronchitis and sinusitis. Great for joints and healing from injuries and surgeries. Comes in pineapple and papaya and is delicious to eat and something we recommend as part of the THERMO diet. Great to take every day, especially for general athletic activities. Improves recovery time post workout. 200-400 mg 2-3x/day is an excellent dose.
Daniel Clauw, MD, a professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and an expert in chronic pain states that “A recent trial* showed CBD alone was effective with knee OA, and it appears as though it is very safe,” he says. “Nearly all potential side effects of cannabinoids are from THC, not CBD.” To be effective, Use low doses, which seem to work best for pain relief.Start with a CBD-only product, 5 – 10mg twice daily, and then slowly increase, going up to dose of 50 – 100mg per day. Use only at night at first; slowly increase dose if needed. Make sure to get FULL SPECTRUM HEMP EXTRACT.
Research has shown that MSM helps improve joint flexibility. This improves flexibility due to a restoration of the cell health in the tissues. MSM is an anti-inflammatory through its ability to detox metabolic wastes to be removed from the cells. Sulfur, a major part of MSM, needs to be present to remove toxins from the body. You can Take up to 6g per day, best with food based vitamin C and Collagen protein.
