The REAL Cause of Arthritis (SHOCKING!)
The mainstream will blame just about everything for your arthritis pain.
They’ll say it’s your age… your genetics… and even your hormones.
But what they won’t say? The REAL CAUSE of your arthritis issues has nothing to do with any of that.
Scientists have discovered that an often-ignored health issue could be causing your joint problems.
And if you can stop it…. you can say GOODBYE to arthritis FORVER.
Arthritis used to be called a “wear and tear” disease. The more you used your joints the more likely they are to wear out.
But this way of looking at your joints is out dated.
A new study, published this week in the journal JCL Insight, looked at the link between arthritis and healthy gut bacteria.
Billions of bacteria live in our intestines (we call this collection of bacteria the microbiome).
The microbiome does many things for our good health, and over the recent years we’ve become more aware of how important they are to our overall health.
In the new study, researchers found that things like aging and gaining weight can change your microbiome, which increases inflammation.
And it’s that type of inflammation that DESTROYS the cartilage in your joints.
So, if you want to STOP arthritis before it STARTS… you need to reduce that inflammation. And the best way to do that is to get your gut heath in check.
Let’s look at that (and other ways) to improve your joint health.
Dr. Scott’s Plan for Healthy Joints:
- Exercise: The more active you are, the healthier your joints. Any exercise where you are moving your joints works: try walking, running, golf, tennis or others. If you already have sore joints, then consider exercises that don’t put pressure on the joints: try cycling and swimming.
- Maintain healthy weight: Losing weight, is important for good joint health. Each extra pound you carry around puts 4 times the pressure on your knees. So, if you remove 10 pounds from your body, you have just taken away 40 pounds of pressure off your knees.
- Probiotics: These are necessary for a healthy microbiome because we don’t eat enough live foods. I like to rotate probiotics in order to get as many different ones as possible.
- Boswellia serrata: Boswellia is an herb that has been used for over a thousand years to help maintain joint health. Studies show it can improve joint comfort in as few as FIVE DAYS.
- Collagen: It’s the most abundant protein in the body and it helps to ensure the health and vitality of your skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints. It even helps to reduce wrinkles. Most of us don’t get any collagen in our diets, so supplementation is your best bet.
Health and Happiness,

Your mainstream doc talks a lot about how important your heart is. And he probably suggests expensive scans, blood work and other tests to make sure your heart is healthy.
