Feed Your Joints

The common misconception of arthritis is that your tired ol’ knees or hands or hips just
wear away with age. Not true! Arthritic joints actually starve for nutrients and healthy living,
including sensible supplementation, can give them the nourishment they need.

By Lisa James

October 2006

If arthritis doesn’t seem quite as inevitable as death and taxes, it certainly gives that famous pair a run for their money. Do you know anyone much over the age of 45 or so who doesn’t ache somewhere? How long does it take you to work out all the kinks when you first wake up? No wonder arthritis is the most common joint disorder in the world.

But it only seems as if we’re all doomed to creak with age. “When you look at many peoples around the world who follow a more traditional lifestyle, they don’t have any arthritis in their bodies at all,” says herbalist and naturopathic physician Eugene Zampheron, cofounder of the University of Bridgeport’s College of Naturopathic Medicine in Connecticut and coauthor (with Ellen Kamhi, RN, HNC) of Arthritis: Reverse Underlying Causes of Arthritis With Clinically Proven Alternative Therapies (Celestial Books). “The only times they get arthritis is if they sustain injuries to the bone that provides blood to the joint.”

To understand why modern folk are so arthritis-prone, let’s look at the anatomy. Free-moving joints, such as knees and knuckles, consist of the ends of the adjoining bones padded by cartilage, a tough, smooth, slippery substance that keeps the bones from grinding together. This cartilage—and everything else within the joint—is covered by the synovial membrane, which produces a nourishing, lubricating fluid. The whole thing is surrounded by tendons, ligaments and muscles that provide support and movement. (The joints between the spinal vertebrae consist of cartilage pads, allowing for more protection but less flexibility.)

Something this complicated can easily go awry, and in fact there are more than 100 different varieties of arthritis. But the mother of all arthritic disorders is osteoarthritis (OA). “Cartilage is composed of water, collagen, which is a structural protein, and glycoseaminoglucans (GAG), which acts as a cushion between the bones,” Zampheron explains. “In arthritis, this structure begins to erode and the body tries to immobilize the joint with calcium by building bridges between the bones as the process continues.” End result: stiffness, pain and decreased range of motion. (In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the second most common type, the immune system goes haywire and attacks joint tissues; the ultimate outcome—cartilage destruction—is the same.)

OA is commonly thought of as a “wear ’n tear” disease, in which joints just naturally grind down over time. Actually, the main culprit isn’t overwork but undernutrition. “Cartilage is like a sponge,” Zampheron says. “When you squeeze it waste products go out; when you release, it opens up and nutrients rush in from the synov...
