The most common form of rheumatism is osteoarthritis, which is a chronic phenomenon due to the degeneration of articular cartilage, which can be called physiological since, as the age comes, everyone is more or less affected.
The lucky ones do not have pain but in general one observes:
– Mechanical articular pains, maximum in the morning, requiring a “rusting”, a start-up. They are improved by a moderate and regular movement, the effort aggravates them and the rest makes them disappear.
– Deformations and stiffness of the joints, which progressively settle and become accentuated until a sometimes painful limitation of certain movements. This is particularly the case in the fingers, hands, shoulders and hips.
– Sometimes non-inflammatory articular effusion occurs.
Inflammatory outbreaks are rare, often in connection with climatic events (humidity, cold, snow …)
If osteoarthritis is adequately treated, it can be expected to stabilize or at least slow down its progression, which is normally towards worsening joint pain and limitations.
Rheumatic phytotherapy is based on the use of traditional plants known for their analgesic, anti-inflammatory and remineralizing actions.
Silica is added to it, which, although not a plant, is a dietary supplement of choice as a bone cellular structurant, in the form of Organic Silica.
