Arthritis relief, Naturally

Urtication comes from the botanical name, Urtica dioica and dates back some 2,000 years to biblical times."

There are actually three common types of arthritis. These are Osteoarthritiswhich is the most common, affecting around 16 million Americans with anaverage age of 45. It usually will attack weight bearing joints likeknees, hips, and ankles but has been found in the fingers, neck andspine. Each of our joints is cushioned by cartilage, a very dense,sponge-like substance. Osteoarthritis attacks that cartilage andgradually wears it down.

Another type of arthritis is Rheumatoid Arthritis.Extremely painful and inflammatory, it strikes the lining of the jointsand actually attacks two million Americans in their twenties.

Psoriatic Arthritis is not as well known as the previous two, but actually eats away at the joints and can also manifest as psoriasis on the skin.

The term Arthritis literally translates to "joint inflammation" If you suffer from any of the different types of Arthritis listedabove, chances are you have taken drugs to combat the effects or triedother home remedies. If you haven't yet tried "Urtication",it mightbe helpful. The term "Urtication" comes from the botanical name, Urticadioica and dates back some 2,000 years to biblical times. Urtica dioicais "Stinging Nettle". The treatment is to grasp the nettles in a glovedhand and swat the sore joints with the nettles. This may seem bizarre,but the practice has proven to be so effective for some sufferers ofarthritis that they now maintain a nettle plant on their window sill.
