Arthritis

ARTHRITIS ///// GLUTATHIONE BENEFITS

Arthritis is an AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE affecting joints and soft tissue.

Arthritis is very common. Actually, “arthritis” is not a single disease; it is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. People of all ages, sexes and races can and do have arthritis, and it is a leading cause of disability.

Common arthritis, joint symptoms includes swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may stay about the same for years, but may progress or get worse over time

Types of arthritis:

Degenerative Arthritis: Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. When the cartilage – the slick, cushioning surface on the ends of bones – wears away, bone rubs against bone, causing pain, swelling and stiffness. Over time, joints can lose strength and pain may become chronic. Risk factors include excess weight, family history, age and previous injury (an anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL, tears, for example).

Inflammatory arthritis: is a term used to describe a group of conditions which affect your immune system. This means that your body’s defense system starts attacking your own tissues instead of germs, viruses and other foreign substances, which can cause pain, stiffness and joint damage. They’re also known as AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES. The most common forms of inflammatory arthritis are: rheumatoid arthritis / ankylosing spondylitis / psoriatic / arthritis / lupus.

These conditions are also called systemic diseases because they can affect your whole body. They can happen at any age.

Infectious Arthritis: A bacterium, virus or fungus can enter the joint and trigger inflammation. Examples of organisms that can infect joints are salmonella and Shigella (food poisoning or contamination), chlamydia and gonorrhea (sexually transmitted diseases) and hepatitis C (a blood-to-blood infection, often through shared needles or transfusions).

Metabolic Arthritis: Uric acid is formed as the body breaks down purines, a substance found in human cells and in many foods. Some people have high levels of uric acid because they naturally produce more than is needed or the body can’t get rid of the uric acid quickly enough. In some people the uric acid builds up and forms needle-like crystals in the joint, resulting in sudden spikes in extreme joint pain, or a gout attack.

Arthritis Means Excess Oxidative Stress = Oxidative Damage = Inflammation

Research shows that Oxidative Stress // Oxidative Damage occurs when the body has arthritis of ANY kind:

2005: Evidence of increased oxidative stress in patients of osteoarthritis in comparison with healthy control subjects.

2006: Conclusions: The findings indicated that lymphocyte DNA damage level increases in patients with RA. Elevated DNA damage may be related to increased oxidative stress and decreased antioxidant capacity.

2007: Oxidative stress may contribute to debilitating symptoms such as fatigue in SLE.

2007: Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is an inflammatory disorder with unknown etiology that mainly affects the axial skeleton as well as the peripheral joints and extra-articular structures. The results of this study indicated that increased oxidant and decreased antioxidant capacity may be associated with the pathogenesis of AS.

2013: Oxidative stress is increased in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and it contributes to immune system dysregulation, abnormal activation and processing of cell-death signals, autoantibody production.

2015: From this study, it can be suggested that hyperuricemia causes oxidative stress in patients with gout.

2016: The oxidative stress and antioxidants play an important role in the disease process of RA

Arthritis is an Auto Immune Disease: "Autoimmune disease: An illness that occurs when the body tissues are attacked by its own immune system".

  • An Immune system under attack is NOT an efficient System. It might be HYPER as in RA, might be SLOW as in OA or it might be "HELTER SKELTER" and be hyper and hypo at different times. This is an UNBALANCED AND WEAKENED IMMUNE SYSTEM.
  • ONE JOB OF GSH IS TO BALANCE AND STRENGTHEN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM. In doing so the Immune System does not attack the cells, it PROTECTS them.
  • As you can see, arthritis causes OXIDATIVE STRESS // DAMAGE. Research shows that GSH REMOVES OXIDATIVE DAMAGE CAUSED BY OXIDATIVE STRESS.
  • WHEN A BODY HAS A WEAKENED IMMUNE SYSTEM, THIS BODY ALSO IS AN ACIDIC BODY, DISEASE / ANY DISEASE CAN ONLY LIVE IN AN ACIDIC ENVIORNMENT. AS THE GSH BALANCES AND STRENGTHENS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM THE pH of the body will balance out, DISEASE CANNOT PROGRESS IN A BALANCED pH.
  • IN ORDER TO AID THE CELLS OF A PERSON WITH ARTHRITIS OF ANY KIND YOU NEED TO ALLOW THE CELLS TO REPLENISH GSH DAILY. THIS ALLOWS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM TO FUNCTION TO ITS OPTIMUM, INFLAMMATION TO CLEAR, THUS PAIN IS RELIEVED and arthritis progression is halted. This does not happen overnight, however it does happen.
  • If the body has suffered bone / joint damage from arthritis this damage will need to be dealt with. However, if a person is replenishing their GSH daily the result of surgery or treatments will be much more beneficial. This is due to the lessened Oxidative stress and inflammation build up.

If a person is on medication for their arthritis, GSH does NOT interfere with this medication.
Effective GSH replenishing by consuming GSH-Immunity, is a food, a Primary whey, nothing more nothing less. By replenishing your GSH you are allowing the cells to function to their optimum. Once the cells become stronger and function to their optimum, the organs begin to function to their optimum, thus the systems gain optimum function. Very often we find that the medications for pain and inflammation can be lessened and then discontinued over time. As inflammation lessens so does the pain. I have clients with arthritis that have been on major medication, as they replenish the arthritis is lessened and healing progresses. Again, this is over time.

The many medications that are used for arthritis and related health situations cause much havoc in the body. Side effects are very scary for all these drugs.

Please know that one job of GSH is to maintain the optimum function of our cells, thus organs, so if a person is replenishing their GSH on a daily basis you can rest knowing that GSH is protecting the cells of the affected organs and thus protecting the organs from side effects.

I have ra, I am holding it in my closet with the door shut tight. My arthritis came upon me over time, starting 3 decades ago. At my worst I had hip to foot involvement in both legs, plantar fasciitis huge in both feet, each morning I would wake up and think how on earth am I going to walk or even take the first step of the day. Each step was like walking on hot shards of broken glass. My ankles would hurt because I was trying to walk gently with my feet hurting. My knees were involved because lower legs were in pain, my hips became involved because of my guarded walking. My back was ok. My arms from the shoulders down had involvement. My elbows suffered from tendonitis, massive tendonitis, spread to my wrists and my thumbs.

8 years ago I suffered from a frozen thumb, it froze in the outward position, everyone told me I would have to have surgery, however, I knew people that had that done and it did not good other than to cause more havoc with the thumbs. I could not turn on nor off taps, I could not open a car door, nor open a jar. Dressing was hard. I was quite debilitated.

Then I was asked to try replenishing my GSH and see what would happen. It took only about 2 months, I saw benefits nicely. It took my thumb 8 months to come to work nicely. My feet no longer have ANY pain, I walk a lot with my dogs. I still have to watch what I do with my hands, my thumbs are my worst and if, for some reason my product is held up in customs, it takes me only 2 days to start sliding downhill again with pain and bad joints.

I take NOTHING in medication for my arthritis. I have been replenishing my GSH now for 8 years. I take 6 scoops a day. As I said I have no pain, in the last 3 years we were given the opportunity to build a new home. My sister paid for it, we had to do the work, it was huge work, I was a big help in this process, I painted all the drywall, we have a lot of wood which had to be sanded by hand, I put varathane on all our wood which is a lot!!! I helped mix and pour cement. I also look after our dogs and our horses feeding and watering. I am physically busy every day. I am tired at night, I know my joints are tired however, they cause me no pain. I will always have ra, it is in my body, however, it is NOT winning, I am winning my fight. I also have no worries about dementia, cancer, other Immune system problems because MY CELLS HAVE ADAQUATE GSH.

GSH REPLENISHING AIDS ARTHRITIS BIG TIME, NOT ONLY ME, MY ARTHRITIS CLIENTS AS WELL
WELL. GSH ROCKS BIG TIME!!!
