What Type of Arthritis Do You Have?
by Rudy Silva
Arthritis dates back to prehistoric times and is seen all through
the ages in the joints of the skeleton remains.
Most of you will have problems with your joints and it may be
arthritis. Arthritis is associated with aging but it is not
caused because you are aging. Arthritis is caused by the body not
been fed the proper nutrients that keep your joints health and
free of wear and tear.
There are plenty of joints in your body and typically there are
only specific joints that have arthritic pain. Those are the ones
that you use frequently. For men it is knees, spine, and feet.
For women it is fingers, hands, knees, and spine.
Arthritis means inflammation of the joint. When your joints have
bone-to-bone contact and grind against each other that area
becomes swollen and inflamed.
There are two main type of arthritis -- osteoarthritis and
rheumatoid -- and others that are less known.
Osteoarthritis means inflammation of the bony part of your joint.
As your joints move against each other, the protective coating
and surrounding material -- membranes, oil sacs, cartilage --
wear down. This wear down occurs when the joints see excess
Normally you would not expect to see this wear down condition
since there are many joints that see excess activity and donít
become inflamed or arthritic. There millions of people who donít
get arthritis, yet the use their joints are used just as much
and perhaps even more. Then there are people who donít use their
joint to excess and still get arthritis.
So the actual cause of arthritis is more than excess activity.
The cause of arthritis has come down to a single or combination
of nutritional deficiencies, excess joint activity, and emotional
Rheumatoid means "similar to flowing pain." It is an autoimmune
disease where good cell and tissue are attack by the immune
system. Rheumatoid first affects the joint membranes and later
the bone structure at the joint. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs in
people of all ages. As this arthritis progresses it can becomes
Rheumatoid arthritis is a recent disease, which appeared at the
turn of the 20th Century. Its cause can be associated with diet
where the balance of the joint structure receives chemicals that
destroy its balanced condition.
Gout is a disease where uric acid deposits in the joints of feet
and legs. When the body has an excess of uric acid, which it
canít eliminate through normal channels of elimination -- the
kidney -- the uric acid settles in the joints and soft tissue
Gout is more common with men, people with high blood pressure,
alcoholics, diabetics, and obesity. Gout means drop. It was
thought by Romans that gout was caused by poisonous crystals
coming from the blood, drop by drop, and depositing in the toes.
There is some evidence that gout is related to the amount of wine
that is drunk with the meal. This put an extra strain on the
liver that tries to detoxify the wine and the meal at the same
time. Result is the liver is unable to detoxify the complete meal.
Other Types of Arthritis
There are other types of arthritis. These account for a small
amount of the types of arthritis that most people have. Here is
Bursitis -- inflammation of the shoulder joints and muscles.
Neuritis -- is know as rheumatism of your nerves. When the
sheaths of your nerves dry out you have neuritis
Myositis -- pain that comes from working hard and muscles have
friction between them.
Fibrositis -- is when your connective tissue become inflamed
Lumbago occurs before you get arthritis of the spine.

what you can do to prevent or eliminate arthritis of any kind.
