Arthritis joint pain and stiffness can drive you to any number of questionable pain pills, potions and therapies looking for relief.
Experimenting to find what works is reasonable… and can lead to real progress. But some mistakes can sabotage your efforts to get real joint pain relief.
Below you’ll find the five most common – and biggest – arthritis mistakes to watch out for and how to avoid them so you’ll get the joint pain relief you’re looking for faster. And I also have some exciting news about some new ways to lubricate, soothe and even help rebuild your joints.
Mistake #1 – Waiting Too Long to Address Arthritis
Arthritis won’t “just go away.” And waiting to do something about it will only allow it time to do more damage to your joints. There’s no time like the present to begin taking control of your life back from arthritis.
Mistake #2 – Undergoing Arthroscopic Surgery
If you want your doctor to operate and “repair” your arthritic joint I hate to break it to you – it’s a pipe dream for all but your surgeon’s wallet. Honest and knowledgeable surgeons now recognize arthroscopic surgery won’t relieve arthritis pain – and may leave patients worse off with inflamed joints post-surgery. If your doctor suggests surgery, just say no.
Mistake #3 – Avoiding Exercise
When your joints hurt it’s easy to sit around and do nothing. Avoid the impulse. Yes, you should avoid high-impact exercise that can damage your joint and leave you in worse pain, but you do want to include exercise and regular movement in your daily routine. Movement and exercise helps keep your joints lubricated, improves blood flow and stabilizes muscles around your joints – all which helps maintain your range of movement.
Mistake #4 – Not Knowing When to Quit a Therapy
We live in an impatient society. But your health didn’t deteriorate overnight and you shouldn’t expect an overnight miracle, either. The key is to give a new treatment plan time to work. How long should you wait for results? If after three months of diligently following a plan you don’t notice a positive improvement, it’s time to try something else. Or, if you get positive results that plateau, you might need to add an approach to what is already (partially) working.
Mistake #5 – Ignoring the Role Nutrition Plays In Arthritis
Particularly with osteoarthritis, proper nutrition plays a vital role in reducing joint inflammation, easing joint pain and increasing mobility. This may not be a surprise to you, but it’s a surprisingly common mistake made by arthritis sufferers. Correcting nutritional deficiencies – and supplementing your diet with joint supportive natural supplements – is important even if you eat a “healthy” diet since even organic foods are largely grown in nutrient depleted soil.
Never Stop Looking for a Solution!
Remember, when you discover something doesn’t work… or doesn’t work completely… you don’t give up. You keep hunting for a solution.
For example, take one of the partial solutions you’ve likely heard of before: glucosamine and chondroitin. While there was a lot of excitement around these natural substances when they were discovered to help joint pain, relief was limited.
The problem is these natural substances found in joint cartilage can help those with moderate to severe arthritis. But those with minor arthritis pain didn’t benefit as much. And those with severe arthritis usually only found partial relief at best – even when both supplements were taken together.
So do we toss the glucosamine and chondroitin? No, you keep what works even partially but keep looking for what your body needs to heal… you add the “missing ingredients.”
And after two years of research and consulting with expert doctors and natural supplement formulators, we believe we’ve found the missing ingredients!
The Secret Ingredient to Rebuilding Your Joints
The joints most commonly affected by arthritis are, unsurprisingly, the most common type of joint in your body: synovial joints. These include your knee, hip, shoulder, wrist, elbow, thumb and other joints.
When your joints stiffen and hurt, it’s usually some combination of bone wear, cartilage breakdown and dehydrated synovial cavities where the fluid that cushions your joint movement normally resides.
Glucosamine and chondroitin as delivered by today’s run-of-the-mill supplements simply cannot resupply what your joints need to fully replenish, relubricate and repair themselves. However, new research has shown combining a hydrolyzed form of collagen with hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate may actually stimulate resident cells in your existing joint cartilage to rebuild itself – actually restoring your joints.
Most importantly, the bioavailability of this form is significantly higher and boasts an 89% effectiveness rate at providing joint pain relief. And that’s just the first of multiple “missing ingredients” we’ve identified and combined into a brand new all-natural nutritional and joint rebuilding supplement like nothing else available on the market today.
We’re excited to finally be able to offer you an arthritis pain supplement that actually works… after many (many) years of research!
