Pain Relief for Arthritis

What is Arthritis and how does it affect your quality of life?

A normal joint (the place where two bones meet) is surrounded by a joint capsule that protects and supports it (see illustration below). Cartilage covers and cushions the ends of the two bones. The joint capsule is lined with a type of tissue called synovium, which produces synovial fluid. This clear fluid lubricates and nourishes the cartilage and bones inside the joint capsule.

In Osteoarthritis there is a breakdown and eventual loss of the cartlidge in one or more of the joints. Cartlidge acts as a cushion between the bones of the joints and when this cushion is gone there is severe pain within the joints and additional inflammation can occur. Osteoarthritis occurs most often in men over 45 and in women over 55. While there is some evidence that supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin can regrow cartlidge over time, you can gain a great deal of relief from the powerul analgesic and anti inflammatory features of Elmore Oil.

In Rheumatoid Arthritis, the immune system, for unknown reasons, attacks a person’s own cells inside the joint capsule. White blood cells that are part of the normal immune system travel to the synovium and cause a reaction. This reaction, or inflammation, is called synovitis, and it results in the warmth, redness, swelling, and pain that are typical symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. During the inflammation process, the cells of the synovium grow and divide abnormally, making the normally thin synovium thick and resulting in a joint that is swollen and puffy to the touch
