Natural Relief From Arthritis - you don't have to live with the pain

Although there are over 100 different forms of arthritis, natural relief from arthritis is possible. The most common form, osteoarthritis is a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection.

Regardless of the type of arthritis, the common symptoms for all arthritis disorders include varied levels of pain, swelling, joint stiffness and sometimes a constant ache around the joint(s).

There is no cure for either rheumatoid or osteoarthritis. Natural herbal treatments can help reduce inflammation in the joint which decreases pain. Moreover, by decreasing inflammation, the joint damage may be slowed.
