The Real Cause of Joint Pain (It’s not what you think!)
Remember those early mornings when you got up, full of energy and vigor, without aches or joint pains? Those were the days! However, over the years, we often wake up to the snap, crackle, and pop of stiff joints and unusual tiredness that seems to stick around, even after a good night's sleep. You might ask, "Isn't it common to have joint pain and tiredness as we get older?" You're not alone in thinking this, but it's not as inevitable as it seems.
The real issue is the natural wear and tear of the cartilage - the body's built-in cushion for our joints, coupled with an increase in inflammation surrounding them. This isn't a result of that occasional exercise or extra-long walk. It's a gradual process, quietly driven by age-related changes in your body, leading to the breakdown of cartilage and an uptick in inflammation.
Here's the crucial information: contrary to popular belief, cartilage can be naturally repaired, joint pains can be healed, and that lost vitality can be regained. This joint discomfort and lingering fatigue are not just unavoidable in getting older. These issues can be resolved with the right support.
