There are two root causes of chronic pain, mechanical and chemical. The two basic types of arthritis typify these two mechanisms.
Osteoarthritis is the cause of most joint pain. The primary cause of the pain is the mechanical interface of two bones. Normally, a water-filled cushion of cartilage (white end of chicken bone) separates bones and provides spring. It's similar to how metal in disc brakes is separated. When the disc in brakes wear down, the metal on metal causes the brakes to squeak. When cartilage wears down and we get bone on bone, this causes pain. It can also cause deformities if it goes on for a long period of time.
Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by chemicals (cytokines) produced by the immune system. If critters try to ensconce themselves in join cells, the immune system will respond by producing cytokines. While the aim of cytokines is to destroy critters, chronic production of cytokines can cause chronic pain as well as debilitating joint deformities.
Conventional therapies for both types of arthritis use drugs called non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The name comes from the initial use of steroid drugs like prednisone for arthritis. These drugs were riddled with side effects. The same is true for NSAIDs like Motrin, ibuprofen, and Aleve, as they are routinely associated with kidney damage, stomach bleeding and "heart attacks".
Newer drugs in the class called "monoclonal antibody drugs" are even more dangerous. Drugs like Embrel and Remicade for rheumatoid arthritis negatively affect the entire immune system. This increases the risk for cancers and incurable diseases such as progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. None of these drugs address the root causes of the pain.
M. O. A. B. is a combination of plant medicines. For billions of years, plants have made Intelligent Design chemicals to protect themselves from being eaten by critters. The magic part of Intelligent Design is that these chemicals kill critters without harming normal human cells (they do harm cancer cells). I've combined these natural medicines with the tried and true arthritis remedy -- DMSO. DMSO improves the delivery of the plant medicines into your joints. It also delivers a building block for cartilage. You get pain relief when you reduce critters and help your body use Intelligent Design to make more cartilage.
