Bursitis

Inflammation of the bursa caused by mucus. Like all other degenerative diseases, bursitis can be healed naturally. Individual herbs good for assisting in the healing. Dietary recommendations that help prevent and treat bursitis. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg

Mosby's Medical Dictionary defines bursitis as an inflammation of the bursa, the connective tissue structure surrounding a joint. It can appear in shoulders, elbows, knees, ankles, buttocks, hips and/or thighs.

Bursitis is also known as Housemaid's Knee, Miner's Elbow, Weaver's Bottom, and more commonly Rheumatism.

Causes and Risk Factors

Bursitis may be precipitated by arthritis, infection, injury, or excessive traumatic exercise or effort.

Repetitive motion is a significant contributor to the development of bursitis. Some examples of repetitive motion are:
  • Excessive kneeling
  • Leaning on elbows for long periods of time
  • Prolonged sitting on hard surfaces
  • Lifting something over your head repeatedly

Risk factors are:
  • Age
  • Pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, gout and rheumatoid arthritis
  • Occupations such as musicians, carpet layers, tile setting, etc.
  • Hobbies such as playing a musical instrument, playing sports with repetitive motion (e.g., tennis, golf, baseball, swimming)


Symptoms

Bursitis, like every other disease, denotes the whole body is out of sync. Bursitis may simply be the epicenter (central point) of distress, but the whole body is in distress due to being acidic and having low mineral and oxygen levels.

Symptoms of bursitis include:
  • Pain
  • Achiness or stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Loss of joint movement
  • Tenderness in the joint, even without movement
  • Redness in the skin surrounding the joint
Healing Options

Like all other degenerative diseases, bursitis can be healed naturally. Taking prescribed medication or prescription drugs for bursitis will only complicate the disease as drugs don't heal any disease nor do they help the body. Drugs only mask symptoms which are sensors stemming from the root cause of a disease.

Physical therapy and strength-building exercises can be very helpful, too, especially around the affected joint.

Individual herbs good for assisting in the healing of Bursitis include anti-inflammatory herbs, i.e. Meadowsweet, Willow Bark, Balm of Gilead, and Woodruff. Other good herbs include Sassafras, Devil's Claw, Burdock Root, Yucca, Manjistha, Comfrey Root, Safflower (Safrron), and Guaiac.

Topical healing salves can help in healing from Bursitis. Christopher's Cayenne salve and 'Sore No More' are good choices.

There are also several good essential oils that offer therapeutic value in healing from Bursitis: Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Spearmint, and Wintergreen. First, rub on some botanical oil as a carrier (olive oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, etc.). Next, rub in a few drops of an essential oil and massage the area where the bursitis is present.

Dietary Intervention

Diets rich in meat, dairy, refined grains, refined starch, processed food, soft drinks, sugar, and salt can contribute to the development of bursitis. These foods can be highly acidic, which irritates the bursae.

An alkaline-based diet can offer relief. It is rich in:
  • green, leafy cruciferous vegetables
  • fruits
  • seeds and nuts
  • whole grains

An all raw-food diet for approximately 3 weeks can kick-start your system. After the initial 3 weeks, consider switching to a vegan-based diet as a permanent diet. However, this vegan-based diet should be 75% raw and 25% processed (vegan).

Daily consumption of vegetable juice will really help your body to heal. Vegetable juice greatly helps the tissues to throw off stored toxins.

The best beverage you could drink to heal from Bursitis (or any other disease) would be water, preferably alkaline water. Water is a natural lubricant and solvent. It greatly helps to dissolve mucus in the body.

Great herbal teas that can assist in the healing process of Bursitis include Devil's Claw, Burdock Root, and Sassafras.

Black Cherry Juice Concentrate is something I recommend for the healing of all joint problems, including gout. This juice should be diluted with water however as it is very concentrated. Black Cherry Juice once daily should suffice in the healing regimen.

5 Worst States For Producing Toxic Chemicals

As the state of humanity's common home continues to deteriorate, the importance of Earth Day and the activism that surrounds it increases. We refuse to stop pump chemical pollutants into the air, water, and food supply, and even wrapping one's head around how badly damaged the earth has become can be difficult.

That's why reports like the Environmental Defense Fund's "Toxics Across America: Who Makes the Billions of Pounds of Toxic Chemicals Flowing Through the U.S. Economy Each Year" are so important.

The Antibiotics That Could Kill You

In 2010, Americans were prescribed 258 million courses of antibiotics, a rate of 833 per thousand people. Such massive usage, billions of doses, has been going on year after year.

We have few clues about the consequences of our cumulative exposures. We do know that widespread antibiotic treatments make us more susceptible to invaders by selecting for resistant bacteria.

These risks are now well-known, but I want to lay out a new concern: that antibiotic use over the years has been depleting the pool of our friendly bacteria -- in each of us -- and this is lowering our resistance to infections. In today's hyperconnected globe, that means that we are at high risk of future plagues that could spread without natural boundaries from person to person and that we could not stop. I call this "antibiotic winter."
