Information on Arthritis

DescriptionArthritis is a chronic inflammation of the joints which can cause redness, pain, swelling, stiffening and eventually degenerative changes in the joints and bones.
Treatment PlanArthritis occurs when excess heat accumulates in the joints. The heat often arises from a diet high in red meat, spicy foods, stimulants like coffee, and foods containing refined sugar, or in cases of stress and overwork. The process often takes many years to develop, so it can take several years to reverse and eliminate the symptoms. An herbal treatment program can include phytosterol-containing herbal anti-inflammatories, immune stimulants, and cold and bitter heat-relieving herbs.
