The RBTI Perspective Of Joint Pain And Discomfort

Are you one of the millions of Americans that suffer with joint health issues such as soreness, inflammation, pain, stiffness and swelling?

What I want to reveal in this article, is the RBTI Perspective of joint health and wellness. The joints of your body, and more particularly the spine, hips, knees and ankles, are subject to a lot of stress, but it is not from what you think. Beginning in the 1930s, Dr. Carey Reams, discovered, among many things, how certain aspects of a person’s electrochemistry play key rolls in the cause of joint soreness, inflammation, pain, stiffness and swelling.

The contributing factors in a body’s electrochemistry cannot be guessed at. The information from an accurate RBTI test on fresh samples of a person’s urine and saliva are necessary to know what factors in diet and lifestyle need addressing. RBTI is not about guessing, it is about accurate individualized electrochemical analysis to reveal causes that can be attended to through the diet and lifestyle.

The two general aspects of electrochemistry that affect joint health are: 1) Calcium and dead cell accumulation in the joints; and, 2) The cartilage loses its’ source of lubrication. Each aspect has more than one contributing factor and sometimes both are involved with causing the unpleasant joint condition.

Calcium and dead cell accumulation in the joints has, as one of its causes, chronic constipation. That is, the speed of the digestion has been too slow for too long. The RBTI test results will reveal the digestive slowness through the pH of the urine and saliva. The more the pH remains alkaline (i.e., greater than 6.60, and the higher above 6.60 the worse the condition) for too long, certain types of calciums in the electrochemistry become excessive and joints are one of the favorite places for these excess calciums to deposit. Plus, dead cells and their parts, that are supposed to be eliminated through the kidneys, end up in the joints along with the excess calcium complicating the discomforting condition there.

On the other hand, when cartilage loses its source of natural lubrication this also contributes to joint discomfort. Loss of lubrication happens mainly through a process known as “reverse osmosis.” In a healthy body, one of the ways the movement of water takes place is “osmosis.” In other words, water is able to move to where it is needed by flowing from an area of low mineral salt concentration, through cell membranes, to an area of higher mineral salt concentration. This movement creates what is known in electrochemistry as “osmotic pressure.” Now, the loss of the natural cartilage lubricant results from a reversal of moistures natural flow into the joint tissue such as the cartilage cells. Instead, because of electrochemical conditions of the tissues around a joint, moisture is pulled out of the joint tissue and cartilage cells. This is usually the result of general body dehydration — not drinking enough pure water for the healthy maintenance of the body’s tissues and organs. This means that dehydration causes concentration of salts, outside the joint tissue, to increase greater than that inside the joint tissue, resulting in moisture moving out of the joint tissue, reducing the natural lubricating factors of the joint.

Either condition can cause various levels of joint discomfort. However, together they can be a double whammy. Which condition is the causal reason for what you are experiencing with your joints can only be revealed through and addressed by the RBTI testing and dietary program.
