Painful Joints: The New Cell Approach
In 1925, the father of American cell biology, Edmund Beecher Wilson, summed up the results of his research:
“It is in the cell to look for the key to every biological problem, as any living organism is, or was one day, a cell.”
Your joints are indeed composed of intelligent cells, with memory and with specific functions.
The condition of your joints is, ultimately, a reflection of the health of their cells. In many cases, the origin of pain and joint disease can be traced back to the cells and their health.
There are three stages of cellular life – Nutrition, Protection, Function.
When a cell has exhausted its natural reserves (for whatever reason: hyper-consumption, dietary deficiency or other) to survive and resume normal duties it must:
1. Have food – in order for cells to recover they need trace elements, vitamins, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and essential amino acids.
2. Protect themselves – studies confirm the increasingly important role that free radicals (highly reactive and very unstable chemical species) play inside the human body.
Their excess can be very dangerous to the body and cause reactions that are stressful or destructive for the cells of various organs: it is necessary and very important to neutralize them.
The production of free radicals at the cellular level has a double origin:
- endogenous training course related to biological processes (e.g. ageing);
- exogenous formation induced by external factors such as stress, pollution, prolonged sun exposure, chemicals, certain medications and tobacco.
3. Boost cellular functions – once the cell is properly nourished and protected, it can boost cell function and thus treat problems whose origin was a malfunction of cells.
To illustrate this process of Nutrition – Protection – Function, we can take the example of painful joints and the standard treatments prescribed by physicians and care provided by physiotherapists and osteopaths.
Because our joints are under strain, for example during a wet spring or a cold winter, they need to be nurtured and protected.
In 2009, the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Hospital Sainte Marguerite Marseille presented to Congress New 21st Century Medicine and Health “Pre-Medicine” the results of a large study conducted in France with 871 patients complaining of joint pain and impaired mobility, and followed by 180 doctors.
This study first showed interest in the essential cellular degenerative phenomena with osteoarthritis cartilage destruction, the result of an imbalance in the extracellular matrix.
It also demonstrated the role of free radicals in the acceleration of the degeneration of the joints.
Based on this observation, the leaders of the study sought to assess the effectiveness of a natural dietary supplementation treating joint problems.
The results of their experiments are at least instructive, 93% of patients saw an improvement.
Traditionally doctors will prescribe physiotherapy or osteopathy to help with joint pain or reduced mobility.
However, recent observational studies have shown links between the efficiency of patient care and nutritional support of patients.
French researchers conducted a survey for 6 months with 50 practitioners and 360 patients suffering from joint problems, 41% were between 40 and 60 years.
The objective was to ascertain the role of nutritional supplementation in accelerating the results of outpatient care for an average of 7 days.
Patients consumed two types of nutritional supplements during this period of observation:
- A dietary supplement for the joints
- A dietary supplement to reduce cellular stress.
In less than seven days, more than half of the practitioners had observed an improvement in the performance of their patients, and over 60% of the patients themselves had observed improvement.
These results underline once again the importance of overall cellular action and nutrition intervention for rapid recovery of the initial deficit cellular function.
Studies such as those presented here (and there are many others) show the decisive role that nutritional supplements have in rebalancing the cellular system and thus in improving pain and joint mobility.
They act simultaneously and synergistically to the overall cellular level thanks to a new technology.
This technology allows active ingredients to be integrated nutritionally into a new natural complex needing neither envelope or excipient, or gelatin or cellulose or alcohol. And allows it all to be readily available.
