submitted by: admin on 06/22/2015



There are many different types of arthritis but all of them are caused and worsened by inflammation. It is important that we live a healthy lifestyle to reduce inflammation by insuring we eat a healthy diet, get plenty of exercise, sleep enough, manage our stress, control our weight and have a meaningful purpose in our lives. In addition there are a number of nutritional supplements that go beyond these important lifestyle factors that we can use to control the inflammation and pain of arthritis.
