Doctors often use diagnostic labels (words) to justify the use of toxic drugs that only worsen conditions immediately or over time. ‘Arthritis’ is a common diagnosis for aching and inflamed joints, but what does this word actually mean?

Do your ailing joints that prompted a visit to the doctor feel any better by restating the obvious in Latin?
On this episode of Alfacast we look at ‘arthritis’ from multiple causative angles with an emphasis, of course, on solutions. You’ll be encouraged to learn that ‘arthritis’ is not an inevitability of the aging process, and expose the fallacy of ‘diagnosis’ through the lens of functional medicine.
