Inflammation Pain Relief for Arthritis Bursitis Sore Muscles

Inflammation Free as an anti-inflammatory is especially helpful for arthritis, bursitis and muscles. These Chinese herbs help pain and inflammation associated with liver, hives, skin, gall bladder, heavy legs, joint, breast, painful urination, fevers, cramps, menstrual pain, trauma and bone pain.

IN-F can help in some cases of dizziness, spots in eye, high blood pressure and coronary artery pain. It helps relieve headaches, eye, shoulder and neck pain, arms, hands, back of legs and feet.

More than one-quarter of all adults experienced lower back pain within the past three months, while 15 percent had severe headaches or migraines. Fifteen percent also reported neck pain.

Chronic pain is any physical discomfort lasting for at least six months. Chronic pain affects up to 50 million Americans, most of whom work full time. Common forms of chronic pain include headaches, backaches, arthritis and trauma caused by sports injuries and car accidents.



New Zealand scientists report that Pfizer�s painkiller Celebrex is no safer than other drugs like Vioxx in the COX-2 inhibitor class that have been pulled from the market, adding to questions about the drug�s future. Unlike other COX-2 inhibitors, like Pfizer�s Bextra and Merck�s Vioxx, Celebrex remains on the market with the FDA�s strongest possible safety warning label.

Doctors have warned that the painkiller ibuprofen can raise the risk of having a heart attack. A study by British researchers suggests regular use of the drug increases the chances of an attack by almost a quarter.

Other painkillers in the same family of anti- inflammatory drugs - used by millions of arthritis patients - are even more hazardous, raising the risk by up to 55 per cent, according to the study.

Inflammation is the body's response to irritation, infection or injury. It begins at the level of the cell when, in response to an injury or irritation, white blood cells in the bloodstream begin to stick to the cells lining the blood vessel wall. The end result of this process is inflammation and pain.

Chronic systemic inflammation is an underlying cause of many seemingly unrelated, age-related diseases. As humans grow older, systemic inflammation can inflict devastating degenerative effects throughout the body (Ward 1995; McCarty 1999; Brod 2000). This fact is often overlooked by the medical establishment, yet persuasive scientific evidence exists that correcting a chronic inflammatory disorder will enable many of the infirmities of aging to be prevented or reversed.

The pathological consequences of inflammation are well documented in the medical literature (Willard et al. 1999; Hogan et al. 2001). Regrettably, the dangers of systemic inflammation continue to be ignored, even though proven ways exist to reverse this process.

New research by the University of Warwick in the UK shows that the biggest health threat to fat and obese people isn't the fat itself but the fact that the fat fuels a killer inflammation response in people.

The research published in the International Journal of Obesity in March 2006 shows that inflammation is a crucial and dangerous step in the development of obesity.

They measured a variety of markers of inflammatory activation and related these to measures of obesity or fatness such as body mass index (BMI) and waist-hip ratio (WHR). The study clearly showed that the levels of sE-selectin, a marker of inflammation produced by artery vessel walls, are strongly associated with measures of obesity, and in particular with the amount of fat around the waist. This inflammation can directly trigger thrombosis, heart disease, strokes and diabetes.

Three distinct types of human ailments - namely autoimmunity, presenile dementia (Alzheimer's disease), or atherosclerosis - are initiated or worsened by systemic inflammation. Atherosclerosis, an underlying cause of myocardial infarction, stroke, and other cardiovascular diseases, consists of focal plaques characterized by cholesterol deposition, fibrosis, and inflammation. the immune response to fatty changes in vessels in atherosclerosis all signal the critical importance of unregulated systemic inflammation to common neurological and cardiovascular disease that shortens the nominal longevity of humans.

Our blend of 19 different time-proven herbs from China in proper proportion helps to reduce inflammation and relieve arthritis and bursitis pain, injuries, joint pain, sore muscles and swelling.

A considerable number of Chinese medical herbs have been found to be anti-inflammatory upon screening for the inhibition of acute inflammation, allergic reaction, and for the alleviation of arthritis symptoms. Most of this research has been published in Japanese or Chinese, making it less well known in the west. Many popular Chinese herbal remedies used in the treatment of arthritis base their anti-inflammatory action on synergistic interactions of the herbs present.

Each capsule contains a 600mg proprietary blend of the following traditional Chinese herbs:

Tribulus Fruit, Lonicera, Dendrobium, Tian Qi Root, Chaenomeles Fruit, Drynaria Rhizom, Forsythia Fruit, Bupleurum Root, Gardenia Fruit, Glabra Tu Fu Ling, Man Jin Zi, Chuan Xiong, Angelica Root, Cartramus Flower, Chrysanthemum Flower, White Peony Root, Gan Cao, Red Peony Root and Philodendron Bark

Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. If you relieve the inflammation, you relieve the pain that comes with it. But as anyone who suffers from arthritis knows, this is not as simple as it sounds.

NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories) like aspirin and ibuprofen are effective painkillers, but they often cause stomach upset, ulcers, liver and kidney damage and gastrointestinal bleeding. Too much Tylenol can kill you! Prescription drugs that address arthritis pain (such as Vioxx and Celebrex) prevent the release of cyclooxygenase 2 (more commonly known as COX-2) a chemical in the body that causes inflammation. These COX-2 inhibitors, however, often cause severe side effects, including heart attacks and strokes. More than 260,000 hospitalizations and 26,000 deaths each year are associated with long-term use of anti-inflammatories. In fact, Merck has to withdraw Vioxx from the market for this reason.

Fortunately there are natural and effective options to NSAIDs and COX-2 inhibitors in treating arthritis pain, with a minimum of side effects. This product is especially good for trainers, physical therapists, and athletes for sports injuries and sports medicine.

Take two or three capsules with meals two times each day or as desired.

In addition to herbs, you can also take dietary steps to reduce inflammation. The specific fats in your diet affect the way the body makes prostaglandins, a group of hormones that regulate inflammation. Some prostaglandins intensify the inflammatory response while others reduce it. To help your body reduce inflammation eliminate polyunsaturated vegetable oils, margarine, vegetable shortening, all partially hydrogenated oils and all foods that contain trans-fatty acids (read food labels to check for the presence of these oils). Instead, use extra-virgin olive oil as your main fat and increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids found in oily, cold-water fish, flaxseeds or oil, and walnuts.
