Aching Joints
  • An estimated 52.5 million adults in the United
    States reported being told by a doctor that they
    have some form of arthritis, rheumatoid
    arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia.
  • One in five (22.7) adults in the United States
    report having doctor diagnosed arthritis.
  • In 2010-2012, arthiritis affects 50 of adults 65
    years or older
  • And 1/3 of ages 45 to 64.
  • By 2030, an estimated 67 million Americans ages
    18 years or older are projected to have
    doctor-diagnosed arthritis.
  • An estimated 294,000 children under age 18 have
    some form of arthritis or rheumatic condition
    this represents approximately 1 in every 250
    children in the U.S. ( CDC, NHIS) 

Health Joints vs Damaged Joints
  • Typical joints consist of bones covered in a
    cushion of articular cartilage and synovial fluid
    that acts as a lubricant.
  • -- allows for smooth conduction of the joint
    through its whole range of motion.
  • Pain in your joints is typically caused by
    overexertion or damage to the joint, and tends to
    occur more as we age

Major Categories of Arthritis Osteo- and
Rheumatoid- and Other Auto-Immune
  • Arthritis affects more than 46 million people
  • Results in disability for 19 million people.
  • Among chronic diseases in the US, arthritis
    causes more disability than any other condition,
    including heart disease, diabetes, and back or
    spine problems.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis is the third most common
    type of arthritis behind
  • -- Osteoarthritis (prevalence 27 million)
  • -- Gout (prevalence 6 million).
  • -- RA affects approximately 1 million in the

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)is an Auto-Immune
  • RA is one of the more common autoimmune diseases,
    with rates higher than a number of other
    conditions, including psoriasis, Crohns disease,
    Type I (insulin-dependent) diabetes, lupus, and
    multiple sclerosis.

Osteo-Arthritis (OA) Affects 27 Million Americans
  • Osteoarthritisthe most common type of arthritis
  • Degenerative joint disease -- characterized by a
    breakdown of cartilagethe tissue that cushions
    the end of bones and allows them to move
  • Typically occurs in hips, hands, knees, lower
    back, and neck. 

Traditional Medical Approach Uses Medication,
Injections and Surgery
  • Acetaminophen is an effective pain reliever for
    OA, but it doesnt address inflammation.
  • Ibuprofen and naproxen reduce inflammation and
    relieve pain.
  • Warning All medications have side effects
  • Acetaminophen is the 1 cause of liver failure in
    the US
  • Ibuprofen can be damaging to the kidney
  • NIH warns that Naproxen can increase risk for
    heart attack. rusty

Prescription analgesics such as Tramadol or
stronger painkillers, like codeine are
How to Ease Osteoarthritis PainNaturally
  • Lose weight At the conclusion of an 18-month
    study, those
  • who took part in a diet-and-exercise
    program lost on average
    approximately 11
    of their starting weight, and reported a
  • 51 reduction in pain.
  • Exercise- exercise strengthens muscles and
    tissues around the cartilage, and can
    significantly reduce inflammation and pain.
    Aquatics, cycling, and walking can build strength
    and burn calories.
  • Healthy diet loaded with vegetables
  • Supplementation
  • source --Healthline

Ideal Diet to Reduce Inflammation
Fruits and Vegetables. Whole fruits, berries and
vegetables, are all rich in vitamins, minerals,
fiber, antioxidants and phytochemicals. Choose
green and brightly colored vegetables and whole
Fats and Oils. Omega-3 fatty acids and
mono-unsaturated fatty acids are an important
part of an anti-inflammatory diet. Many of the
protein sources also contain beneficial fats,
including fish, seafood, soy, avocados,
olives and nuts. 
Protein Sources. Anti-inflammatory protein
sources include most fish and seafood, poultry
and plant-based sources . 
Alex s Story
  • Bad knees (and generally stiff joints, which
    runs in the family) since I was young.  Limited
    range of motion, pain during exertion, and
    hypersensitivity when almost anything touched
    my knee. 
  • Competitive runner, regular physical therapy,
    then sporadic exercise, and feeling forced
    into a sedentary lifestyle over the course of
    many years. 
  • 2 1/2 years ago, I could not execute a squat
    (or, at least, I couldn't get out of one), could
    not run without destructive and painful effects,
    and even had issues walking.
  • Sharon convinced me to try Joint Health. Complex
  •   Within 6 months, I was able to run again and
    have continued to improve over the year and now
    run a steady schedule again. 
  • Symptoms that plagued me even when I was
    exercising intensely in my 20s have been much
    diminished  My range of motion is better than
    ever .My joints are the last things to hurt on a
    run and I can bump my knees into the occasional
    table leg, etc., without doubling over in pain.
  •   I am a natural skeptic, and so have conducted
    several "control" black-outs, where I don't take
    the supplement.  With Joint Health, the
    relationship between symptoms and lack of
    supplement is pronounced.  Sensitivity and
    stiffness are unmistakable after a week, but the
    symptoms diminish within a week back on the
    supplement.  .

Rustys Story Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Definition -- Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a
    type of arthritis that affects the spine. (AS)
    symptoms include pain and stiffness from the neck
    down to the lower back. The spine's bones
    (vertebrae) may grow or fuse together, resulting
    in a rigid spine. These changes may be mild or
    severe, and eventually lead to a stooped-over
  • At the age of 30 years, I could not get out of
    bed and dressed without help. I continually
    limped and generally felt lousy.
  • I discovered in my late 30s that I had
    ankylosing spondylitis. A degenerative disease
    affecting my spine and generally was causing a
    fusing of my spine. I learned there was no cure
    and that my health would suffer because of it. I
    was told that the greatest benefit would be
    exerciseand I couldnt get out of bed without
  • I was introduced to Shaklee just before my 40th
    birthday, and two things happened. One I began
    to feel a better. I had more energy and less
    pain. Two I began to study complementary
    medical disciplines that I did not study in
    Pharmacy School.
  • Now forty years later I do not look like a
    typical ankylosing spondylitis patient. Do I
    still have the disease? Yes. Has it affected my
    lifestyle? Maybe a little, but not much.

    Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Some Cox-2 inhibitors are prescription drugs and
    yet medical science has not been able to find a

Essential Fatty AcidsOmega-3s and Omega-6s
  • Naturally anti-inflammatory plus
  • Helps reduce risk of heart disease
  • Reduces triglycerides
  • Reduces total cholesterolraises HDL and lowers
    LDL Improves eczema

Understanding Prostaglandins
  • Prostaglandin E1
  • Prevents blood platelets from sticking together,
    thus helps prevent heart attacks strokes
    caused by blood clots.,
  • Relaxes blood vessels, improving circulation,
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Makes insulin work more effectively and
  • Enhances the T-cell function of the immune
    system. Gamma linoleic acid (GLA) increases this
    beneficial prostaglandin.
  • Prostaglandin E3
  • Has similar functions as PE1.
  • Prevents the release of arachidonic acid stored
    in cell membranes and its conversion to PE2.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids (Omega Guard) are the source
    of this beneficial prostaglandin.
  • Prostaglandin E2
  • Promotes platelet aggregation .. 1st step to
    clot formation,
  • Increases risk for heart attack and stroke.
  • Causes kidneys to retain sodium, leading to
    water retention,
  • Causes inflammation.
  • Saturated fats containing arachidonic acid (
    animal sources) increase levels of this
    pro-inflammatory prostaglandin.
