Phytotherapy for joint diseases and sports performance

Unlike other manipulative therapy, phytotherapy does not view joint diseases as a focal joint disease – ” My ankle has a problem, fix my ankle.” but a systemic disorder with factors such as: 

  • Blood microcirculation 
  • Blood quality (e.g. uric acid and autoantibodies)
  • The health of the cardiovascular system 
  • Insulin sensitivity
  • Systemic inflammation
  • Psycho-social factors

Your blood bathes the joints and the cells. Though helpful in the short term, no manipulation therapy can give a lasting and permanent cure if one does not work on the blood. 

Several herbs in phytotherapy (Western herbal medicine) can help promote & support:

  • microcirculation
  • nerve entrapment
  • inflammation
  • support liver function (and consequently the quality of the blood)
  • support insulin sensitivity
  • prevent muscle strength loss (atrophy)
  • and even regenerate the joints!

Some are also effective for sports performance and stress resistance (both emotional and physical).

A holistic approach also involves coaching in diet and lifestyle, we take it a step further when we assess clients in detail.

Thus, the chances of recovery are higher.
