Coconut Oil And Athritis

Arthritis is an inflammation of one or more body joints. It is frequently accompanied by a joint pain medically referred to as arthralgia. A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meet. Moving the body parts connected by its bones is the main role of a joint.Osteoarthritis, a type related to the wear and tear of cartilage and Rheumatoid Arthritis, the type associated with inflammation resulting from an overactive immune system are just some of the many types of arthritis.


Causes of Arthritis

Its causes depend on its form. These include injury (leading to osteoarthritis), metabolic abnormalities (such asgout and pseudogout), hereditary factors, the direct and indirect effect of infections (bacterial and viral), and a misdirected immune system with autoimmunity (such as in rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus).



The first step is to build up your immune system so it can more effectively fight off chronic infection. A diet consisting of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, organic meat, eggs, and dairy and the reduction or elimination of overly processed foods is a must.

The second step is to actively fight off the infection within the body and the joints. Antibiotics have only a limited ability. They cannot fight viruses, fungi, or drug resistant bacteria. However, there is a natural product that can — Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO). Unlike any other dietary oil, VCO is composed predominately of a unique group of fat molecules known as medium chain fatty acids. These fatty acids possess potent antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral activity. Taking 2-4 tablespoons of VCO daily, with meals can help rid your body of chronic infection.
