Osteoarthritis and arthrosis occur when the protective hard and slick surface of the cartilage of the joint becomes rough and wears down more quickly than the body replicates. This leads to pain and inflammation in the joint. Osteoarthritis and arthrosis can damage any joint in the body, but most commonly they affect joints in the hands, knees, hips, neck and lower back. In severe cases, joints may become twisted and deformed. The symptoms often develop slowly, worsen over time and include joint pain during or after movement, swelling, redness, joint stiffness in the morning or after a period of inactivity, loss of joint flexibility, you may hear or feel a grating sensation when moving, bone spurs may form around the affected joint and numbness.
Risk factors to develop osteoarthritis and arthrosis are older age, family history, bone deformities, joint injuries, rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune disease), uric acid crystals, obesity, an infection, metabolic disorders (diabetes, gout), an acidification of the body, hormonal disorders and imbalance (menopause, an underactive thyroid), circulatory disorders, lack of exercise and poor nutrition.
Osteoarthritis and arthrosis can be caused and reinforced by a mineral deficiency and an acidification of the body. Also a defective metabolism favors osteoarthritis and arthrosis, acidification and chronic health problems and is often the result of a disturbance of mineral intake and mineral distribution. Although we may receive enough minerals in our food, in the event of a metabolic disorder, not all of the minerals may reach the cells. The use of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts is a good way to compensate this mineral deficiency in a natural way and to treat osteoarthritis and arthrosis.
In the homeopathic and biochemical treatment (Schuessler salts) of osteoarthritis and arthrosis, detoxification therapies serve the activation of metabolism, the immune system and strengthening the body's circulation. The body will be purified and the dissolved metabolic waste and toxins are extracted through the intestines, urinary tract, lungs and skin.
Stress, acidification of the body, as well as environmental toxins hinder the mineral transport through the cell membranes. This is where the effect of Homeopathy and Schuessler salts works. They activate the excretion of toxins and acids. The basal metabolic rate increases and the self-healing power of the body is activated.
First I like to explain you the therapies for the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis and arthrosis offered in this guide:
Homeopathy was developed 200 years ago by Samuel Hahnemann. The three basic principles of Homeopathy are the simile rule, homeopathic drug testing and detection of individual disease. The most important principle is the principle of Similarity (simile rule), which was formulated in 1796 by Hahnemann.
It states that a patient should be treated with the remedy, which can cause in its original state similar symptoms in healthy people like the existing disease. It notes primarily the main complaints of the patient. Together with a few differentiating additional informations (modalities) then the right remedy will be found for the treatment of osteoarthritis and arthrosis. The dosage depends on the condition of the patient. As the patient improves, the distances between the medication will be gradually extended.
What happens if you choose the wrong remedy: Nothing. Just as a key does not turn in the wrong door lock, a wrong homeopathic remedy does not cause any reaction in the body.
The homeopathic remedies are available as D-, C- and LM potencies. For the beginners in Homeopathy, I recommend the use of lower D-potencies. Higher potencies (D200, C and LM potencies) should only be given by an expert, as they go very deep in their effects and are often used only once.
Schuessler salts (homeopathic cell salts, tissue salts, Biochemistry) for the treatment and prevention of osteoarthritis and arthrosis
In the 19th century the german physician Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler (1821 to 1898) developed his health cure with homeopathic mineral salts. In recent years this therapy celebrated a comeback. In his studies Schuessler discovered twelve mineral compounds, comprised each of a base and an acid, which play a crucial role in the function and structure of the body. He developed his own system with which many diseases can be treated in a natural way (also osteoarthritis and arthrosis).
Schuessler focused his search on mineral salts and trace elements, which are found in every cell of the body and called his method of healing "Biochemistry" (chemistry of life). It is based on the assumption that nearly every disease is caused because of the lack of a specific mineral salt. This leads to dysregulations inside the cells. The molecules cannot flow freely.
A mineral salt deficiency arises from the fact that the cells cannot optimally use the minerals. To improve their absorption, mineral salts therefore have to be highly diluted (potentized). Schuessler used the homeopathic potencies D3 (3x), D6 (6x) and D12 (12x) for his therapy. In general, the D6 (dilution 1:1 million) or D12 (1:1 trillion) is taken.
In this naturopathic adviser, I will give you recommendations how to treat and prevent osteoarthritis and arthrosis with Homeopathy, Schuessler salts and herbal tinctures. I will present you the most proven homeopathic remedies and Schuessler salts, including the appropriate potency and dosage. Naturopathy works holistically. It treats the whole body, spirit and soul. I wish you much success, joy of life and especially your health.
Osteoarthritis - Arthrosis treated with Homeopathy
- Osteoarthritis is the consequence of a variety of musculoskeletal disorders causing complete functional and structural breakdown of one or more joints of the body. It is a complete malfunction and subsequent loss of the cartilage of one or more of your joints. Cartilage is a protein component in the body that provides a cushion support between the joints and the bones. When this cushion degenerates due to various other disorders, it causes osteoarthritis. This medical ailment is also termed as "Degenerative Arthritis", and is one of the most common forms of arthritis.
Osteoarthritis not resulting from injury or disease, is mostly a result of natural aging of the joint. With aging, the water content of the cartilage increases, and the protein makeup of cartilage degenerates. Eventually, cartilage begins to degenerate by flaking or forming tiny crevasses. In advanced osteoarthritis, there is a total loss of the cartilage cushion between the bones of the joints.
Repetitive use of the worn joints over the years can irritate and inflame the cartilage, causing joint pain and swelling. Loss of the cartilage cushion causes friction between the bones, leading to pain and limitation of joint mobility. Inflammation of the cartilage can also stimulate new bone outgrowths (spurs, osteophytes) to form around the joints. Osteoarthritis occasionally can develop in members in the same family, implying a hereditary (genetic) basis for this condition.
In addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment of osteoarthritis and arthrosis, you may make a de-acidification health cure of your body with the following recipe:
320 grams of Sodium bicarbonate (Natrium hydrogenkarbonat)
50 grams of Potassium hydrogen carbonate (Kalium hydrogencarbonat)
70 grams of Calcium citrate (Calciumcitrat)
40 grams of Calcium phosphate (Calciumphosphat)
20 grams of Magnesium citrate (Magnesiumcitrat)
Dissolve 1 teaspoon in 250 ml of lukewarm water daily at 10 and 16 clock and drink in small sips.
During the day time, in addition to your homeopathic and biochemical treatment, drink 3 cups of tea for the kidneys. In the evening drink one cup of tea for the liver. This will clean the blood and connective tissue and the toxins, acids and metabolic waste products will be extracted quickly.
1) Liver support tea and detoxing the body:
Semen Cardui marianae 50.0 (milk thistle), Herba Chelidonii 15.0 (celandine), Rhizoma Tormentillae 15.0 (bloodroot), Radix cum Herba Taraxaci 15.0 (dandelion root and herb), Fructi anisidine (anise) 20.0, Fructi Foeniculi (fennel) 20.0, Folia crispae mentha (mint) 15.0
Mix the above listed items together. Add 1 tablespoon into 1 cup (250 ml) cold water and cover for 8 hours. Cook 3 minutes. Let sit covered for 10 minutes and then strain. Drink in the evening.
2) Tea for the kidneys and the extraction of metabolic waste and acids through the urinary tract:
Folia Betulae (birch leaves) 30.0, Herba urticae (nettle herb) 30.0, Herba Equiseti (horsetail) 20.0, Herba Virgaureae (goldenrod) 20.0
Mix the above listed ingredients together. Add 2 teaspoons into 1 cup (250 ml) of hot water, let sit covered for 10 minutes. Strain to drink. Drink 3 cups daily.
3) If you suffer from allergies, alternate daily the 2 above mentioned teas with a tea for the treatment of allergies to sensitize your body for the treatment of osteoarthritis and arthrosis with Schuessler salts and homeopathy:
Radix Imperatoriae 20 g, Radix Pimpinellae 20 g, Herba Euphrasiae 10 g, Herba Rutae hortensis 30 g, Rhizoma Graminis 10 g, Herba Absinthii 10 g
Mix the above listed ingredients together. Add 1 teaspoon into 1 cup (250 ml) of water, cook 2 minutes, let sit covered for 10 minutes. Strain to drink. Drink 3 cups daily.
Pay attention to an adequate hydration (water, tea, unsweetened juices)
How to calculate your daily fluid requirements: Multiply your weight in kilos by 4 and divide the sum by 100. The result shows your daily liquid requirements in liters without physical exertion. Alcoholic beverages do not count.
As an example: Your weight is 80 kg. Multiply 80 times 4 and divide by 100. You need about 3.2 liters of fluid every day.
The kidneys can only extract metabolic waste products if there is enough liquid available. If you exercise a lot, you need more fluid. The water supports the elimination of toxins and waste products of the metabolism. In addition, it prevents hunger. Drink the most until the afternoon. In the evening drink as little as possible to relieve the bladder.
Osteoarthritis - Arthrosis treated with Homeopathy
For enhancing the effect of the homeopathic medicine dissolve the globules in a small glas of water and drink in small sips. Swallow after 1 minute. For stirring please do not use metal spoon. Do not count the globules in the hand. The manual welding destroys the sprayed drug. Avoid during the homeopathic treatment the consumption of nicotine, alcohol and spicy foods.
