How to Cure Joint Pain Naturally with 3 Key Lifestyle Changes

Hi, this is Gareth Churchill from Erudite
Lifestyle Magazine. Today I’d like to quickly discuss how you
can reduce your joint pain naturally by making 3 key lifestyle changes. This includes one small change to your diet
which was found in a human clinical study to be: “more effective than a placebo
in reducing pain, improving [joint] function and improving overall quality of
life.” I’ll also be sharing the 3 key reasons why
taking painkillers for chronic pain is a bad idea and 4 popular supplements for relieving
joint pain you can take instead. Now if you’ve tried supplements in the past
but they did very little to reduce your joint pain – or did nothing at all – then
please keep watching. Because I’m going to explain exactly what
you need to do so that the supplements you DO take DO actually work over the long-term. Now, if you’re watching this video, I can
imagine it’s because joint pain is affecting your enjoyment of daily life. That an aching neck, a stiff knee or a frozen
shoulder is making simple everyday tasks like getting out of bed, unscrewing
a lid on a jar or driving a car painful and frustrating. Maybe your joint pain robs you of your mobility?
Your freedom? And your happiness in life? If this sounds like you then by the end of
this video my goal is for you to know exactly what to do to get rid of your joint
pain once and for all. Now, if joint pain is causing you problems,
you’re not alone. Joint pain is often caused by arthritis, an
injury or tension and it affects around one in six adults. Unfortunately, many people take painkillers
daily to relieve their pain. While they are fast acting, taking painkillers
for weeks or months on end is not a good idea for three KEY reasons. Firstly, painkillers do NOTHING to address
the root cause of your pain. They do NOTHING to reduce the INFLAMMATION
or to repair the wear and tear on your cartilage, tendons and ligaments. For this reason, painkillers are little better
than a sticking plaster. What you really need is something that repairs
your joints at a deeper level, so your pain reduces PERMANENTLY over time. The second danger of painkillers is that they
can be HIGHLY addictive. Nobody takes painkillers thinking THEY will
get addicted. But as their pain gets worse and worse, they
can find themselves taking them more and more each day. In fact, in the UK alone ONE MILLION people
are estimated to be addicted to painkillers. And if you start taking too many, you face
the third TERRIBLE danger of painkillers which is SERIOUS health problems. This includes liver failure, a stroke or even
a heart attack. In fact, deaths from pharmaceutical painkillers
are now higher than for car accidents. And in the US in 2010 there were four times
more deaths from prescription painkillers among women than cocaine and heroin
COMBINED. Now, I know this all sounds alarming. But I’m not telling you all this just to
frighten you. I’m sharing this information to help you
understand the dangers of taking painkillers over the long-term so you consider adopting
natural ways of treating joint pain instead. This now brings me to the 3 key lifestyle
changes that can reduce your joint pain over the long-term, which I mentioned at the
start of this video. The first one is to exercise daily. Now, this may sound too painful to even consider
right now. But daily exercise can be very effective at
relieving long-term joint pain. FIrst of all it can help you lose weight. This will place less strain on your joints. Secondly, it can strengthen the muscles that
support your joints and lubricate them so they have more flexibility. If you don’t exercise regularly, start light. Go for a stroll after work. Do some light stretching. Try yoga or Tai Chi. Then as your fitness improves, you can build
up to jogging, cycling and more strenuous exercise over time. The next key lifestyle change I’d like to
share with you is very important for your all round health, and not just your joints. And that is to reduce the amount of sugar
in your diet. Sugar has been found to cause a condition
known as GLYCATION. Glycation has been blamed for aging the skin,
creating lethal belly fat and causing the onset of type 2 diabetes. If that wasn’t bad enough, studies are now
suggesting that sugar may be affecting our brains too, and may be a key reason for
the huge rise in dementia. Glycation is also a major cause of painful
INFLAMMATION around your joints. So rather than drink soda, consider having
a glass of water instead. And eat healthy WHOLE foods that are free
from processed sugars, sweeteners and other artificial ingredients as much as
possible. My third key lifestyle change is also related
to diet and it is to eat natural ingredients that have a long history of treating
joint pain. This includes Turmeric & Ginger, Extra
Virgin Olive Oil, Dandelion Leaves, White Willow Tea and Juniper Berries. Many of these natural ingredients are also
available as supplements. Now, if you’re rolling your eyes thinking
“supplements are a waste of time!” please bear with me. Because in a minute I’ll explain why the
supplements you’ve tried up to now may have barely worked, and what you can do to
improve their efficacy.. But first, I’d like to quickly share with
you four popular supplements for joint pain and the evidence that suggests they can be
helpful at repairing the wear and tear of your joints and reduce joint pain over
time. Before we continue, I need to make it clear
that I do not claim or imply that any of these ingredients can treat, prevent or cure
any medical condition. I am simply providing you with the information
that is available so you can make your own mind. Now that’s been said, on to the first first
supplement which is glucosamine sulfate. You’ve probably heard of it before because
it is VERY popular for joint pain. Glucosamine sulfate is a type of natural sugar
found in the fluid around your joints. It plays an important role in making amino
acids and proteins, which are essential building blocks for the ligaments, tendons
and cartilage that cushion your bones and stop them from rubbing against each other. According to Arthritis UK: “Animal studies have found that glucosamine
can both delay the breakdown of and repair damaged cartilage” This claim is supported by a clinical review
of 18 human trials in 2005 which found that glucosamine sulphate was significantly
better than a placebo in relieving pain and in improving walking and other daily activities. You can find links to all the studies I mention
in the notes below this video. The next supplement I’d like to share with
you is Shark Cartilage. Shark Cartilage is more widely known as a
natural supplement for cancer, for healing wounds and improving eyesight. Shark cartilage contains calcium, phosphorous,
and complex carbohydrates. These are also key building blocks for healthy joints
and bones. In a recent study, Dr. Joseph Orcasity, a
consultant at the University of Miami Medical School, gave a dozen elderly patients
with severe knee pain a shark cartilage supplement for four weeks. At the end of the trial the majority of patients
said they had reduced pain and swelling and increased mobility. So if you haven’t tried it before, shark
cartilage is certainly worth a go. On to supplement number three and that is
New Zealand Green Lipped Sea Mussel. Human clinical trials of green-lipped mussel
supplements found that: “Green-lipped mussel was more effective
than a placebo in reducing pain, improving function and improving overall quality
of life when taken along with usual painkillers. Both forms were effective,
with 73% of the lipid group and 87% of the powder group showing significant
improvement.” The reason why New Zealand Green Lipped Sea
Mussel is said to be so effective at reducing joint pain is because it is packed
with omega-3 fatty acids. According to Arthritis UK: “Laboratory and animal studies have shown
that omega-3 fatty acids have anti- inflammatory properties and are important
for maintaining joint cell structure and function” This assessment was backed up by a clinical
study of 250 people who suffered from neck or back pain. They were asked to take an omega-3 fish oil
supplement instead of painkillers. By the end of the study: 59% stopped taking painkillers altogether 60% said that their joint pain had improved None reported any side effects The final supplement I’d like to share with
you is Chondroitin Sulfate, which is found naturally in the connective tissue between
cartilage and bone and has shock- absorbing properties. One of the most extensive studies of its kind
on chondroitin sulfate was conducted at the University of Montreal Hospital Research
Centre of 600 patients with osteoarthritis over a 2 year period. At the end of the study, the patients given
a glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate supplement were found to have retained more
cartilage than the placebo group. So Chondroitin Sulfate is yet another supplement
to consider for repairing the wear and tear on your elbows, knees or wrists and
reducing your pain over the long-term Remember that you can check all the studies
I’ve mentioned by following the links below this video. Now, I need to make it clear that none of
these supplements are a magic pill or a quick fix. It can take one month or longer before you’ll
notice any improvement. So you need to be patient. But the BIG benefit of natural supplements
over painkillers is that they are far, far safer for long-term use. They don’t risk causing liver failure, strokes
or heart attacks. And they are taken to help reduce the inflammation
that is causing your pain, rather than just treat the symptoms. So you may be wondering why the supplements
you’ve tried in the past have been ineffective? The reason is because taking one supplement
on its own may not provide enough of the nutrients your ligaments, cartilage
and joint fluid need to repair themselves. You will likely experience better results
if you take a variety of supplements that contain a wider range of nutrients for repairing
your joints. Along with the four I’ve mentioned, this
could include Alfalfa powder, Yucca extract and Devil’s Claw. It’s just common sense that the more nutrition
you feed your ligaments, cartilage and tendons the better they can repair themselves
and reduce the inflammation. But there is just one problem. Who wants to swallow 7 or more pills each
morning? Not me! This is why I recommend taking a multi-supplement
that provides the combined benefits of 7 or more nutrients in one easy
to swallow pill. Under this video I’ve linked to a popular
multi-supplement that many people now take to relieve their joint pain naturally
over the long-term. Remember that you should also get regular
exercise and eat a healthy diet low in processed sugar to give your joints the best
chance of healing themselves over the long-term. So, this brings me to the end of this video. I hope you found it helpful. Please subscribe to this YouTube channel because
we’ll be making many more videos on natural ways to look after your
brain and body in the coming weeks and months. And if you’ve found the information in this
video useful, please share it with anyone you know who is suffering from joint pain
so they can benefit from it too. Again, if you’d like to know more about
an effective multi-supplement that can help to reduce your joint pain naturally and avoid
the dangers of long-term painkiller use, please visit the link in the description
