CARTILAGE REPAIR

What is Cartilage?

Cartilage are the shock absorbers for your bones and muscles. When you work them too hard, wear and tear can cause pain and inflammation and even bone rubbing on bone.

HOW TO PREVENT/HEAL CARTILAGE DAMAGE

1.  Drink enough water, at least 8-10 glasses of distilled or reverse osmosed water every day to lubricate ligaments and all bones, muscles, etc.

2.  Avoid acid-forming foods that increase inflammation and pain: meat, dairy, grains, sugar and sugar substitutes except stevia, coffee, tea, sodas, and alcoholic drinks.

3.  Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables, especially raw and cooked spinach, kale, and collards.

4.  Grind up the egg shells from your hard- and soft-boiled eggs and sprinkle it on your food to obtain calcium, magnesium, glucosamine, chondriotin,  hyaluronic acid and collagen to increase elasticity in your ligaments, lubricate your joints, connect and support your ligaments.

5.  Increase your intake of fish to reduce inflammation and reduce pain(especially salmon and sardines in water), avocado, evening primrose oil, and coconut oil.

6. Obtain sufficient rest and do not overstress your body.

7. Use herbs and spices daily to reduce inflammation and pain: white willow, ginger, curcumin, cayenne pepper.

8. Eat pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds, almonds, walnuts, cooked carrots, red peppers, Brussels sprouts, cantalope, and mushrooms daily to provide zinc, vitamin A, B complex, and vitamin C, and obtain sun exposure to your arms and legs for 15 minutes 3-4 times per week to obtain sufficient vitamin D or take a tablespoon of cod liver oil daily. 

9. Do resistance training to strengthen your ligaments. Find out more at http://fitness.mercola.com/sites/fitness/archive/2015/09/18/strength-training-moves-for-seniors.aspx?e_cid=20150918Z1_

10. Take warm to hot epsom salt baths, whichever feels good to you. Soak your entire body for at least 15 minutes, as often as needed. Your skin will absorb the minerals and the heat will help you relax. Put a pillow under your head and enjoy.

11.  Use high touch acupressure to assist in opening your energy channels. Learn to concentrate on balancing the pulses in your index third and fourth fingers while holding acupuncture points. Here are some points to hold for 1-15 minutes: front and back of shoulders, inside elbows, index finger, top of hips and inside of opposite leg, middle of the back of the neck, on bone that runs across the back of your head, little toe, pubis, coccyx, under breasts, back of middle of neck.

12.  If your pain is due to arthritis or gout, cherries may help. Eat them fresh, frozen, or as a juice. Research has shown they can help.
And not only with pain--they may help with stiffness and movement, too.
