Anger and frustration are typical of a person diagnosed of Arthritis. Destiny is not in our control. Determination to overcome is. There is always a way to make the best of the situation. Take stock. Get down to analyzing the underlying cause.

Trauma on the joints is one of the main reasons for the occurrence of Arthritis, especially osteoarthritis. Trauma affects changes in the very structural construction of the joints.

Those who are in occupations wherein they have to be on their feet a lot are likely to get osteoarthritis of ankles, knees and hips. This is because these joints bear their weight all day long. Obese are also very likely candidates. Same is the case with pregnant women with the extra weight they carry on their tummy. Sports persons are likely to affect the joints which they stress a lot. Over clocking computer operators are likely to afflict their fingers with this problem.

Study on families of persons suffering from Arthritis, especially osteoarthritis, gives evidence that hereditary factors play a role, in making a person susceptible to this affliction. The bone-structure of different human race is not similar. So some are more likely and some less likely to take the brunt of this problem.

Another type of Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, occurs more due to the constituency of blood of the subject afflicted with Arthritis. The blood pathology of some is such, like those of diabetics, those with thyroid problems, those with hormonal problems, that it triggers Arthritis. Imbalance of blood components, of thyroid hormones, other hormones, in the afflicted person’s blood bring about physiological changes in the body leading to Rheumatoid Arthritis. Women undergoing menopause face erratic hormonal changes in their body making them prone to Rheumatoid Arthritis.

The energy packets in the body fail to get carried efficiently quantitatively and qualitatively to the joints. The joints get less nourishment than they ought to. As a result they are unable to perform their functions in top form. This happens even with those who are under nourished in essential food components like calcium, manganese, magnesium, proteins and fatty acids.

Even mental and emotional trauma which bring about negative chemical changes in the body, indirectly bring about Arthritis.

Some theories even postulate that damp environment bring about Arthritis.

Research is still underway to establish that certain food allergies, especially wheat, potato, tomato, peppers and animal products, are catalysts bringing about Arthritis.

Less stressful but regular movement of the joints is said to trigger the body into secreting the lubricating fluids around the joints. Sedentary and near immobile persons fail to bring about extraction of these fluids. The joints, the muscles around, become stiff as a result. This is the reason why those having Rheumatoid Arthritis experience symptoms of Arthritis soon after waking up but begin to feel normal as the day progresses. This is precisely why Arthritis patients, and just about everyone in general, are advised to keep moving.

Now you know why you suffer. Having been able to successfully pin-point the cause of Arthritis, the next step is to find relief, a remedy, a cure, for Arthritis. Non-invasive and non-allopathic medications like herbal remedies for Arthritis, natural remedies for Arthritis and home remedies for Arthritis are the craze of the day. Shun Arthritis and have fun.
