Sore Joints – The Secrets To Quick Pain Relief
If you’re like myself and millions of others you have either one or many sore joints that could use some really good, fast relief from all the pain you have to endure on a daily basis.
Trust me I think I know exactly how you feel, sure yours might be worse than mine or vice versa but none of that really matters because when your joints hurt they just hurt.
For me the big one is my left knee. Man I will tell you what, all those people who say that you can’t feel the changes in the weather in your sore joints just don’t know what the heck they’re talking about. I feel it big time and I have spoken with plenty of other people who can feel it too.
Maybe some of this will sound familiar; when I would over work my knee the knee pain would be pretty intense kind of like a burning sensation and mine was behind and under the knee cap. Then my knee would get kinda loose and unstable and start popping out just walking around the house.
It got so bad there for while that I was wondering if I was going to need surgery. I didn’t want to miss that much work because knee surgery recovery time can be quite a while. Yes I also have other sore joints like my shoulder that used to make it almost impossible to sleep in that side at night without waking up 10 or more times.
There are 2 secrets to ending joint pain for good that I found worked for me and now has worked for all of my friends that were suffering from sore joints too.
Secret number 1; Water – yes just plain old ordinary water was one of the keys to me finally getting rid of this terrible joint pain. Here’s the thing; did you know that 70% of Americans are typically dehydrated?
I personally would have never guessed that in a million years. I would have thought that with all the harping all the health Guru’s do on TV and everywhere else that people would most likely be super saturated with H2o but as it turns out that’s just not the case.
I didn’t think it was possible, but I too was dehydrated. I thought that a lot of the other beverages that I consumed throughout the day counted as my “fluids” intake, turns out I was wrong.
The only fluid that counts towards your daily water requirement is pure water, nothing else just water. You can’t substitute it with coffee, tea, soda or even iced tea, it has to be pure water only.
So, take the next week and be sure you’re getting all of your water requirements every day for at least one week, I guarantee you will be surprised at the difference it makes in the way you feel with your sore joints and also your energy levels will improve.
As it turns out daytime fatigue is also caused to a great extent by dehydration. Of course that makes sense because your body is over 70% water so if you want it to work correctly you need to give it what it’s made of.
The second secret that I uncovered was through a really well nutritionally educated doctor. He said that I needed to find a source of collagen peptides. Not just plain old collagen but the little tiny peptides that are the building blocks of our collagen. Turns out once I started researching this that there is a ton of studies that have been performed on this very subject and the people in the studies had some pretty amazing statistical changes.
