What is Arthritis

Arthritis is the inflammation of the joints characterized by pain and stiffness, swelling, deformity, and diminished range of motion. This is called a degenerative disease because there is a disorder in the function of the glands and nervous system. Inflammation is a protective response by the body to irritation or injury. Autoimmune disease results in chronic inflammation and an overactive immune system.

What Are the Early Signs of Arthritis

The early sign of Osteoarthritis:

1) pain after exercise or use of the affected joint.

The early signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Atrophic Arthritis:

1) Fatigue

2) Weakness

3) Poor apatite

4) Low-grade fever

5) Anemia

6) Increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate

What Are The 3 Types of Arthritis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Atrophic Arthritis

  • Osteoarthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic destructive collagen disease which has an auto immune component. It is sometimes deforming. When joint is injured, inflammation leading to thickening and accumulation of painful amounts of fluid that normally lubricate the join. Swelling also occur. Usually appear early middle age (30 to 50 years of age) and most commonly in women.

Atrophic Arthritis (also called Arthritis Deformans, Still's disease). This is a kind of Rheumatoid Arthritis that occurs in young people. Medical diagnosis is based on lab findings, x-ray, and physical exam. Early effects based on x-ray are bone changes .

Osteoarthritis occurs when one or more joints undergoes degenerative changes including loss of cartilage, proliferation of bone and cartilage forming bone spur (osteophytes). Inflammation of the synovial membrane around the joint comes late in this disease. Cause is unknown, but may include mechanic, metabolic, genetic, and endocrine factors. Emotional stress often aggravates the condition.

Natural Cures

1) Rest of the involved joints

2) Detox

3) Excellent nutrition

4) Heat (as instructed by health care professional)

5) Anti-inflammatory and pain reduction remedy

6) Exercise under water

What Is High Blood Pressure?

Imagine blowing up a balloon. The pressure inside the balloon keeps increasing as you blow into it. So does the pressure inside the blood vessel keeps increasing. We will later examine some known causes.

Hypertension is the common name for high blood pressure. It is often called the silent killer because there is often no symptoms to warn you that there is a problem. It is characterized by an elevated blood pressure persistently exceeding 140/90mmHg.

What are different types of hypertension?

  1. Primary or Essential Hypertension: this is the most common type. The single cause is still classified as unknown but the risk of contracting this disorder is increased by obesity, high sodium (salt) level in the blood, and a family history of high blood pressure.

  2. Secondary Hypertension: in this type the cause is another medical condition or medication being used.

  3. Malignant Hypertension: this type is characterized by extremely high blood pressure (diastolic pressure greater than 120mm Hg), which develops very quickly and results in organ damage. Signs of organ damage usually seen in the kidneys or eyes. There are other symptoms as blurred vision, chest pain and difficulty breathing. This is a medical emergency to be treated in hospital.

What are the known causes of Hypertension?

  • Adrenal gland disorder in the hypersecretion of aldosterone hormone to regulate sodium and potassium balance in the blood, and metabolic disorder of chronic excessive production of cortisol. Cortisol is steroid hormone occurring naturally in the body and is involved in the regulation of blood sugar and carbohydrate metabolism. the adrenal gland produces other hormone including adrenaline (also called epinephrine) and norepinephrine, which functions as hormone and a neurotransmitter.

  • Tumor of the adrenals

  • Pituitary gland tumor that cause an increased secretion of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). (Normally cortisol is produced only in response to ACTH and ACTH is not secreted in the presence of high levels of cortisol.)

  • Vascular tumor characterized by hypersecretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine

  • Pronounced Hyperthyroidism usually associated with an enlarged thyroid gland.

  • Physical or emotional stress

  • Toxemia of (bacterial toxins in the blood stream) pregnancy

  • Inflammation of the kidney

  • Vascular disease,

  • Kidney disease

  • Medication glucocorticoids.

  • Medications including birth control, MAOIs used to treat depression , and illegal drugs as cocaine.

  • Missing medication

How does the body respond to stress?

Stress is viewed as a psychological problem, but it has physical effects in the body. The body still responds as if their is a real threat if the conflict is left unresolved. These series of physiological changes is called the "fight or flight" response, and includes the following:

1. Increased secretion of adrenaline, elevated blood pressure, acceleration of heartbeat, and increased tension in the muscles. The increased production of adrenal hormones is responsible for most of the symptoms associated with stress.

2. Digestion slows or stops, stored fats and sugars are released, cholesterol level rise, and the blood composition changes and become thicker, which is more prone to clotting. This increases the risk of stroke or heart attack.

3. The pituitary gland increases its production of ACTH, which in turn stimulates the release of hormone cortisone and cortisol these inhibit the disease fighting white blood cells and suppress the immune system.

Key insight

  • The glands are taking a beating in the immune system responses to control the situation, especially the adrenal gland.

  • The increased production of adrenal hormones are also the reason that stress can lead to nutritional deficiencies in attempts to produce energy for the body to use in this distressed state. Protein, fats, and carbohydrates quickly produces energy for the body to use. This response causes the body to 1)excrete amino acids, potassium and phosphorus. 2) deplete magnesium stored in the muscle tissue. 3) store less calcium.

  • The body does not absorb ingested nutrients well when under stress.

  • With prolonged or recurrent stress the body is unable to replace the nutrients adequately.

  • Stress also promotes the formation of free radicals which can damage cell DNA causing a form of mutation to the cells that becomes fixed in the genetic content of the daughter cell, which is associated with cancer.

Natural Cures

1) Although garlic and other natural remedies has been used for centuries in controlling high blood pressure, they are not without their danger and side effects. For safety, consult a health care professional before using herbal remedies as treatment.

2) Conflicts causing stress can be identified and resolved using assessment, natural stress management techniques tailored to the conflict, and coping mechanisms.

3) Detoxing helps the body to get rid of toxins and waste, which lighten the burden on the immune system.

4) Holistic care plan is formulated to address personal need, lifestyle changes, nutritional supports, physical activity, conflict resolution and stress management which, when implemented, will accomplish the set goal.
