Herbs for Arthritis

Herbs for Arthritis — Arthritis means joint inflammation. Any part of body can become inflamed or painful from arthritis. The two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease resulting from the wear and tear of life. Osteoarthritis leads to pain, tenderness, swelling, and decreased function of joints. The joints most often affected by osteoarthritis are knees, hips, hands, and spine. Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s own immune system mistakenly attacks the synovium (cell lining inside the joint).
