Taking Charge of Your Health


This video talks about what you can do at
home and hopefully avoid some doctor office visits and over-the-counter
medicine for the common condition known as arthritis. Hello, everyone. This is
Dr. Jason West talking about arthritis and to recap, arthritis is common but not
really well understood, it’s actually not a single disease, it’s an informal way of
referring to joint pain or a joint disease and there’s more than a hundred
different types of arthritis and conditions and people of all ages, sexes
and races can have arthritis and it’s the leading cause of medical disability
in America. More than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have some type of
arthritis and it’s most common among women and occurs more frequently as
people matriculate down the road of life. That’s a nice way of saying you’re
getting a little bit older. Now common arthritis symptoms include pain, swelling,
stiffness, decreased range of motion and this symptoms that can gum and then they
can go away and they can vary from being mild or irritating to moderate and severe
in not being able to do the activities that you’d normally do. Now they may stay
for a short time period they can stay for years, they can be progressive, they
can be rollercoaster. Arthritis can interfere with the activities of daily
living and it can also cause permanent joint changes and sometimes you see
these on people that have swollen knuckles, they’ll have enlarged or
swollen knees, they’ll be bent over in the spine, their
shoulders don’t work, the wrists don’t work. It can also infect some organ
system like the heart, the eyes, the lung, the kidneys and even the skin.
Now just to summarize, there’s a couple main types of arthritis even though
there’s a hundred in the family of degenerative inflammatory infectious and
genetic susceptibility. Food allergies have a huge factor in arthritis. Now
that’s kind of the overview on arthritis, let’s talk about what you can do about
it. Now the first thing I think is most important, is to get your body on a
schedule because it craves order. Try to go to bed at the same time, try to get up
at the same time. I found that changing sleep patterns
really really have a positive effect on arthritis and you want to eat healthy
and alive food, avoid predigested, prefabricated synthetic and I’m kind of
making fun of that whole process but if your food has a tendency to be more
plastic than food, it has a real propensity to aggravate your joints and
if you can decrease your inflammatory foods like sugar and all of the you know,
50 plus ways to describe sugar, sugar is like throwing gasoline on the fire and
its really really inflammatory so natural sweeteners like pure maple syrup,
honey, stevia, natural fruit, it’s a lot better
for you and it really helps to take the inflammation out of the joints. Now I
love recommending to people that have arthritis in hot and an ice approach,
it’s like a pumping mechanism. Heat has a tendency to make you feel better because
it’s a mild analgesic but it also brings more blood supply and inflammation to
the area if you’ll do ten minutes of ice, ten minutes of heat, ten minutes of
nothing which you create a pumping mechanism, it really seems to help with
joint problems. Hot foods like peppers, onion, garlic, radishes, things that really
really give a heat sensation to food seem to decrease inflammatory arthritis
and osteoarthritis and don’t forget about teas. Now in America, we don’t drink
as much tea as everybody else in the world but Camaleon tea, Dandelion black
tea and exercises that don’t compress the joints like swimming, biking,
treadmill, walking are really really good for arthritis. I don’t think it’s a good
idea to not move because it has a tendency to make the joints extra stiff
but going out and running on a hard surface, doing certain types of exercises
where you’re just pounding the joints I think is going to make things worse.
Movement is important but there are better types of movement like one
example is swimming is really really effective for limbering the joints. Now
make sure you have enough vitamin C, it’s my favorite vitamin because it’s a power
electron donor to the body and what it does is like putting energy in the
system and then cloves, garlic and onions, I mentioned a little bit before but it’s
so good for reducing and containing inflammation. Now omega-3’s that are found
in from the in fish oil like salmon and stuff like that are really good for you
but just don’t take a pure omega-3 supplement. I don’t think it’s balanced
if you take an omega-3 and you put in some GLA, some flaxseed oil, maybe some
evening primrose oil, when you combine oils I think you get a much more
therapeutic outcome and you want to avoid any of those allergens like dairy,
nuts and eggs and I know that not everybody that eats that has arthritis
but here’s the simple test, instead of going out and spending a
whole bunch of money and food tests in in making sure that you don’t have
allergy tests, don’t go out and spend a whole bunch of money in food tests and
environmental sensitivities where a better way to do that is just avoid
dairy for a time period and see what happens.
Avoid nuts, avoid wheat, avoid eggs and if you feel better, there’s your answer. Now
most of the time people give up way too early on a food allergy or food
elimination diet. They’ll say I didn’t have any wheat for a week or two and the
research that I’m aware of shows that if you avoid things for about 90 days, it
gives a micro villi in your stomach associated with some of those stomach
problems and inflammatory arthritis, it gives them a chance to reset so if
you’re avoiding wheat and you haven’t noticed a difference, my question to you
is, do you think you’ve avoided it long enough? Now don’t discount healthy music,
turn up those tunes and some of the classical Baroque music has been shown
to be really effective in modulating arthritis. Become grounded, I love that
red vise that you should get out and walk barefoot on the ground periodically
because I think it grounds your system and don’t knock it till you try it, have
healthy calcium levels about 1,200 milligrams a day and foods like
cauliflower, cabbage, kale and my favorite vegetable that seems to have everything
in it is broccoli. Now moderate sun exposure and vitamin D supplementation
about 5,000 units today and some supplement considerations
which we’re going to go into in greater detail in the next video like ginger,
fish oil, turmeric, cayenne, Glucosamine, Chondroitin and my favorite number one
recommendation for chronic arthritis pain is Cetyl Myristoleate or what we call
CMO and then there’s also a really neat cream, magnesium, close to native olive
oil or german homeopathic treatment liked Traumeel or T relief can provide
some really nice relief. Now I’m all for living in without pain but I do want to
recommend that you’d be really careful with over-the-counter medicines, just
because they’re over-the-counter doesn’t mean that they’re completely safe and
people taking lots of things like Tylenol, Aleve and aspirin, it does have
an effect, it can be really hard on your stomach system, some of those medicines
can harden up your kidneys and give you a glam area full vocal nefra sclerosis
which I had to practice really hard to be able to say or it can be really toxic
to your liver so if you can manage arthritis through lifestyle, through diet
and some properly prescribed nutritional medications, man, you can get amazing
relief. This is Dr. Jason West, we’ll see you on the next video.

Over time it's getting louder. sometimes it hurts in the knee. It sounds as if to keep up with the leg. I made jogging and cycling exercise for 3 weeks and there was nothing to do.
