Folk remedies for joint pain

If you ask a traditional healer: "Why did joint pain appear?", Then almost always you get the answer - salt deposition is to blame. Almost all folk remedies for joint pain are designed to dissolve these salts and remove them from the body.

Official medicine considers the following as the main causes of joint disease:

  1. The formation of osteophytes, which appear during degenerative-destructive pathological changes in the musculoskeletal system - in general, and in the joints - in particular. If the axis of the joint deviates from the axis for some reason, then bone formations - osteophytic thorns - grow at the edges of the bones.
  2. If the metabolic process is disturbed or with kidney pathology, uric acid accumulates in the joints, and gout develops. This disease significantly impairs the quality of life - the attacks are extremely painful.

Folk remedies for joint pain help to normalize metabolic processes, cleanse the body of excess salts and eliminate discomfort.
