Preventing osteoarthritis

Arthritis is a painful and sometimes incapacitating condition many of us seem to endure as we age, on occasion even requiring surgery to replace sclerotic and mangled joints that no longer uphold our functionality.  If only we knew what caused this crippling condition perhaps we could abort its destructive progress.   Illuminating new findings suggest that allergy might be incriminated as those who suffer from dermatitis and asthma triggered in part by allergies and the overactivity of mast cells that release too much histamine also bear the brunt of an increased incidence of arthritis. 

  This could mean that if we suffer from overactive mast cells and surges in histamine which can lead to recurring runny and/or blocked noses as well as asthma and dermatitis and a host of other medical conditions including irritable bowel, anxiety, recurring headaches and fatigue to name just a few, all possibly primed by allergies and excessive exposure to moulds and pesticides, our joints might also be set up for the development of arthritis.

 Aside from aborting mast cell overactivity by limiting our exposure to potential food and environmental activators and taking medicinal anti-histamines natural inhibitors of mast cells and histamine include vitamins, B6, folate, B12, vitamin C, a vitamin like substance called quercetin, curcumin or turmeric and alpha-lipoic acid, an antioxidant.
