Joint pain

Can joint pain be cured? Unfortunately, to this day there is still no cure for joint pain, but there are treatments that can provide relief.

Arthritis, arthrosis, or rheumatism are all common occurrences that force you to take anti-inflammatory medications or relaxers that can have negative long-term effects, especially on the kidneys and liver.

As you probably already know, the joints connect bones together and make movement and flexibility possible. They’re also covered in cartilage, a tissue that can be rebuilt with proper nutrition.

Yet, why is it that some of us suffer from joint pain?

In some cases, it’s genetic or a result of wearing the joints down over time. It can also be due to low amounts of collagen, a loss in resistance, infection, lesions, or even unknown causes.

We really encourage you to see a doctor if you suffer from joint pain. However, in some cases you can also try the following simple remedy.

Ginger boasts powerful medicinal properties. This plant has been used for ages, and is especially famous for its digestive properties and its ability to reduce pain and inflammation caused by arthritis.  

What’s its secret? It contains an element called gingerol, which has become commonly used to treat pain. Many studies have even recommended it for arthritis.

For example, in 2007 the University of Arizona found a powerful anti-inflammatory agent in ginger. The chemical production of gingerols showed a reduction in inflammation.

There’s even more. The prestigious John Hopkins University also conducted a study that found that ginger’s compounds suppress inflammatory chemical substances enough to not even need traditional medicine.

So, it’s definitely worth it.
