*osteoarthritis is when the cartilage between bones wears down, until bone grates on bone causing pain, inflammation and joint stiffness.

*rheumatoid arthritis is caused by an autoimmune disorder (the immune system attacks normal joint tissue for no reason) that causes inflammation of the synovial membrane ( a soft tissue that protects joints) and that can lead to bone loss.

turmeric and ginger– are both anti-inflammatorys. The active ingredient from turmeric called curcumin is a powerful antioxidant. In addition, it lowers the levels of 2 enzymes responsible for causing inflammation. You can add 0.5 spoon of both ground ginger and ground turmeric to 500ml of boiling water and simmer for 10-12 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste and enjoy twice daily.

-dandelion- high in vitamins A and C, can help repair damaged tissue and help the liver clear toxins out of the blood. Due to contained lenoleic and linoleic acids, dandelion shows anti-inflammatory properties.

-white willow- can smoothe the pain. It contains an active ingredient called salicin which is converted in the body into salicylic acid – similar to acetyl salicylic acid, the active ingredient in aspirin. But because the naturally occurring salicin is converted after it passes through the stomach, it does not irritate it.

-juniper berry- contains the ingredient called terpinen-4-ol. Terpene suppresses monocytes, which respond to signals of inflammation.
