Which Arthritis Do YOU Have? (Here’s How to Tell)
It’s happened more times than I can count…
A new patient… one who has been seen by another doctor… will tell me that he has arthritis.
When I ask what kind of arthritis, I get a blank stare.
The medical system does a VERY poor job of educating patients about arthritis.
The truth is, there are several different forms of arthritis.
And understanding which type you have is the first step toward making the pain disappear.
Let me show you.
Here are the most common types of arthritis:
- Osteoarthritis: This is the classic arthritis everyone thinks about. Osteoarthritis used to be called “wear and tear” arthritis because we thought your body just wore out after a certain age. We now know osteoarthritis results from inflammation gone wild and not having the right nutrients for repair. This arthritis is typically worse in the morning, after resting, and after exercise.
- Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, where your body attacks your joints. This eventually leads to joint destruction. Rheumatoid arthritis is usually worse after sitting still for a while, but gets better when moving around. There is a strong association between rheumatoid arthritis and gut health–so keep your gut healthy with probiotics if you have this type.
- Psoriatic: Psoriasis is normally a skin disease that appears as itchy, scaly rashes and white plaque on elbows and other parts of the body. While it is rare for psoriasis to attack the joints, it can happen.
- Gout: Gout is one of the worst types of arthritis. It can suddenly make walking unbearable. Gout usually strikes specific joints in the hands and feet. This disease is closely associated with blood sugar control and stopping fructose (high fructose corn syrup) is great for reducing attacks.
Regardless of the reason for your joint pain, there is much you can do to keep your joints happy.
Dr. Scott’s Joint-Health Protocol
- Joints are made up of collagen. That means you need to eat collagen. But where do you get collagen? Our ancestors found collagen in bone broth, blood pudding, and by eating brains and bone marrow. Most modern people are appalled by the thought of eating these.
There are great sources of collagen which are easy to get–if you know where to look. Try eating gelatin, it contains some of the nutrients needed to build healthy joints. But I strongly suggest that you find a collagen product and start supplementing. I prefer products that use collagen peptides from pasture-raised animals.
- Eggshell membrane is a good source of joint-food and helps reduce inflammation.
- Inflammation is lowered by avoiding vegetable oils, processed foods, and by eating a low sugar diet. Fish oil is my favorite anti-inflammatory and I like curcumin and Boswellia as well.
