Water Can Help to Relieve Arthritic Pain
Enjoy Drinking More Water and Help to Relieve Painful Arthritic Joints by Installing a Drinking Water Purification System!
New Studies show that in order to relieve the pain associated with arthritic joints; we need to increase the amount of water we drink. But just as important as increasing our water intake is the purity of our drinking water. US tap water contains hundreds of harmful contaminants and the best method to ensure that your water is free from contamination is to install a drinking water purification system.
Arthritis Can be Caused by Joints Deficient in Water
Many doctors are now realizing that the pain of arthritic joints, in many cases, is the direct indication that the joint surfaces (cartilage) is deficient in water.
Our joints consist of bones which are both covered with a layer of cartilage. It is actually the cartilage, not the bones that come into contact with each other. The cartilage surfaces constantly rub against each other; the cells die and peel away and then regenerate. Cartilage is mostly made up of water and a joint that has sufficient water supply, stays nice and smooth causing very little friction and damage to the joint. However, if a joint has insufficient water supply, the cartilage fails to be replenished and shrinks in size and function, producing much more friction and damage to the joint, which eventually causes arthritis.
Cartilage is low priority for water supply. So if you don't drink enough water, the cartilage is one of the last places that water will replenish. If the cartilage has not suffered long-term de-hydration, it is possible to gradually restore the cartilage back to its smooth, re-hydrated condition but if the cartilage has worn away to the extent where bone is rubbing against bone, it is unfortunately too late for water to be able to repair the joint.
Water Filters Help to Avoid Adding Unwelcome Contaminants into the Bloodstream
It is very important for our joints as well as the overall health of our body to drink more water. The benefits of drinking more water are widely publicized these days. But the water we drink needs to be purified water, free from harmful contaminants that can have adverse effects on our health. Unfortunately, most tap water contains chemical and toxic contaminants. Replenishing body water with pure, filtered water is important because it helps to avoid adding unwelcome contaminants into the blood steam.
These days it is very inexpensive and easy to install a water filtration system in your home. There is a huge range of different filters to choose from: filters that attach to your tap, whole house water filters and portable systems and water filter cartridges.
A water filter in your home will give you piece of mind that you are giving your body clean, pure water as nature intended and hopefully help to relieve the painful symptoms of arthritis.
