To treat the problems caused by osteoarthritis as with any other problem, it would be crucial to the regeneration process to learn the fundamental cause or causes of your osteoarthritis and change it or them and find the things which are useful for your condition, then ingest, have and/or do as many of these as you can.

An example of this would be – if you were under stress for a long period of time which wore down your adrenal glands, then at the time of menopause your adrenal glands did not take over properly and replaced the hormones that were produced by the ovaries, at the same time you were not getting adequate amounts of calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and phosphorous in your diet, the combination of these things caused degeneration of the joints, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments, because these things need those minerals deposited properly for their structure and maintenance, therefore causing osteoarthritis. In this particular example you would want to eliminate your stress, decrease the amount of stress you are under and/or do stress management techniques so that you are less effected by stress. Also you would want to take calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and phosphorous in adequate amounts so that it could be utilized properly and have all of the proper things to rejuvenate your adrenal glands, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles from the damage that was done, thereby decreasing or eliminating the osteoarthritis.
