    Joint pain is one of the greatest inconveniences that can hamper our mobility and decrease the zest we feel for life as we get older. It manifests in symptoms of inflammation which is typically characterized by redness, swollen joints that are warm to the touch, loss of joint function and joint pain and stiffness.

    Inflammation may also be associated with fever chills, headaches, loss of appetite, fatigue, low energy and muscle stiffness.

    In its worst form, joint pain is a precursor to rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis, caused by an overactive immune system, is especially scary, since the medical protocol can be quite intense (such as chemotherapy and other therapies which suppress the immune system). To protect your well-being and your pocket, it is advisable to turn to natural remedies in herbs to treat inflammation as well as herbs which cleanse the blood and strengthen the body in general.
