THIS MIGHT SURPRISE YOU. MORE THAN HALF OF AMERICANS WITH ARTHRITIS ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 65 THIS IS NO LONGER YOUR GRANDPARENTS’ DISEASE. THIS IS STRIKING DURING MIDLIFE. WE HAVE AN HERBAL PHARMACIST THAT IS HERE TO TALK ABOUT MIDLIFE ARTHRITIS AND PUTTING IT IN FOCUS. I’M NOT SO SHOCKED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE I’M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT SUFFERS FROM ARTHRITIS. YOU ARE ONLY 29. [ LAUGHTER ] RIGHT! WHAT IS RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS? THIS IS ONE OF 100 DIFFERENT KINDS OF ARTHRITIS.

THE GEL THAT COMES FROM THAT TOPICALLY AND ORALLY CAN HELP WITH INFLAMMATION. WITH ARTHRITIS WERE TALKING ABOUT INFLAMMATION IN THE JOINTS. ANYTHING TO POSITIVELY AFFECT THE BODY AND HOW IT ADAPTS TO THE INFLAMMATION WILL GO ALONG WAY. THAT’S WHY THESE ARE SUCH GREAT HERBS. THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT PEOPLE CAN USE. YOU CAN USE ALL OF THEM IF YOU WANT TO AND PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS. IS THERE ANY REASON WHY MORE YOUNGER PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS?
