Here’s the REAL Reason Your Joints Hurt
The next time you see my picture on top of Living Well Daily, I may be completely bald.
Nothing makes us feel our age like painful joints.
Every small step hurts… and just trying to stand up or open a jar can leave you in agony.
Doctors will tell you’re just feeling “wear and tear” of aging.
I’m going to tell you–that is a bunch of bull.
Your joints don’t have to fall apart as you age.
In fact, keeping them healthy and pain-free is a lot easier than you’d think.
Let me show you.
Joints exist everywhere in the body where two bones meet. Joints are made up of cartilage, which itself is made up primarily of collagen.
Joints cover bones and make movement (articulation) smooth and easy – except when joints fail.
When the smooth cartilage of joints wears out, then bones start to rub against each other. This is what causes slow movement, inflammation, and pain.
Joints fall apart for two main reasons:
- The first is that joints are missing the nutrients they need to be healthy and make repairs. This makes sense, because you cannot find the building blocks for joints anywhere in our modern diet.
- The second reason is inflammation.
If you want to get out of the joint-destruction business and into the joint-building business, then you need to fix both of those: decrease inflammation in your body and provide joints with the nutrients they need to thrive.
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 that are easy to get – if you know where to look. Try eating gelatin, it contains some of the nutrients needed to build healthy joints. I strongly suggest that you find a collagen product and start supplementing. I prefer products using collagen peptides from pasture-raised animals.
- 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 as well.
Taking care of your joints is a life-long process. Start today and you will be active and mobile your entire life.
