Proven Herbal Remedy For Arthritis, Joint Pain. Natural Healing For Rheumatoid Arthritis
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Devil's Claw in treating joint conditions like osteo-arthritis, fibrositis, rheumatism and small joint disease, (Lecompte & Costa, 1992). It has also been scientifically proven to assist in the treatment of lower backache (Chrubasik, 1996). In a study by Brady et al, (1981), serum cholestol and uric acid levels were shown to be reduced after treatment with Devil's Claw.
Scientific studies have also indicated that it is effective in stimulating the lymphatic system to increase resistance against disease.
Glucosamine is naturally manufactured in the body and scientists known that this simple substance is found in relatively high concentrations in the joints and connective tissues, where its function is to repair cartilage and maintain joint mobility.
Boswellia has been used for thousands of years as a natural anti-inflammatory. Modern science has verified that boswellic acids contained within the herb can block the formation of leukotrienes, the immune cells responsible for inflammation, while also promoting the formation of free radicals. With regular use, blood supply to the joints is also maintained, keeping soft tissue nourished and viable.
Harpagophytum Procumbens (Devil's Claw): This herb is indigenous to the Kalahari Desert and is exclusive to Africa. Because of its powerful anti-inflammatory properties, Devil's Claw is used world-wide for osteo-arthritis, fibrositis, rheumatism, small joint disease and lower backache. Scientific analysis shows that the most important active ingredients in Devil's Claw include monoterpine, harpagoside, glycoside, beta-sitosterol, procumbine and stigmasterol. Warning: Because of its strong anti-inflammatory properties, JointEase is not recommended for people with stomach ulcers or those with any heart conditions, unless supervised by a medical practitioner.
Glucosamine sulphate: is one of the best bio-available forms of glucosamine supplements and it has been shown that 90 - 98% is readily absorbed in the intestines. Glucosamine has been approved for the treatment of arthritis and other joint and muscular conditions in more than 70 countries throughout the world. Studies have demonstrated its ability to decrease pain and inflammation, increase range of motion and to help repair aging and damaged joints in the hands, knees, hips and spine. Recent studies have suggested that glucosamine may be even more effective than the non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) such as aspirin and ibuprofen, without the harmful side-effects associated with these drugs. It is well known that while the NSAIDS may mask the pain of arthritis and other joint conditions, they can also impair the body's ability to produce cartilage, thereby worsening the condition in the long run and increasing dependence on anti-inflammatories. In contrast, glucosamine relieves pain and inflammation, while also building and repairing cartilage and connective tissue thereby going far beyond pain relief.
Boswellia serata: Extracts of the gum of this tree found in India have been used for thousands of years to relieve pain and inflammation. Scientific studies have demonstrated that boswellia has the ability to inhibit pro-inflammatory mediators in the body and to reduce pain and inflammation without irritating or ulcerating the stomach lining. Boswellia has also been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of ulcerative colitis.
"Pat came to see me after her husband had died. She was in her late 50's and had been looking forward to spending her retirement with her husband. When I first met her, I thought that she was in her early 70's. Pat was obviously in pain and she moved like a much older woman, struggling to sit down and to get up from her chair after the first session had ended. We spoke about her husband and her feelings of loss and anger at his death. Pat told me that she saw little reason to continue living without her husband, because she was also in constant pain due to arthritis and found it very difficult to complete even her daily household tasks, let alone get out for enjoyment. Her condition made her feel permanently exhausted and she did not see how she was going to be able to cope. However, she agreed to come and see me for a period of 3 months. In addition to grief counseling, I advised Pat to take Devil's Claw, a well-known African remedy for arthritis. Over the next few months, it was wonderful to see how Pat looked younger and stronger as her pain disappeared. She developed a spring in her step and felt much more able to cope with her daily life. I persuaded Pat to join a 'Walk for Life' group, in order to give herself some additional exercise and also to meet new people. At the end of 3 months, we terminated therapy as Pat felt that she was once more able to look forward to life. She still missed her husband dreadfully, but now had a busy social life and for the first time in many years, was able to go about her day without pain." - Michele Carelse , Clinical Psychologist
"I am 69 and for the past 5 years have suffered from lower back pain and painful knees so that I was sometimes bent almost double and felt like I was at least 20 years older than I really was! I took JointEase quite skeptically after it was recommended by a friend, because I have not had much experience with herbal products. After 3 - 4 weeks I could really feel the difference. Now about three months later I am taking a half dose and am walking upright again for the first time in years. My compliments on a very effective product, which helps more and is a fraction of the price of other medicines. I am walking proof that it works!" - Frank C. Somerset West.
"JointEase Plus has saved my life! Instead of constant pain, I can move around and begin to enjoy life again. I notice that your new formula relieves the pain AND I can move better. My joints just seem to move more smoothly and my lower back pain has disappeared without trace for the past three weeks!
