What do soda, coffee and tea have in common? These beverages all have tannic acid, a certain type of chemical that is harmful for the joints. Although recognized as “safe” by the Food and Drug Administration, the widespread use of tannin acid in drinks has caused a myriad of health problems gone undetected in their connection to popular beverage consumption. Among these health problems are heart burn, indigestion, ulcers, cancer, intestinal damage, and arthritis. Studies show that high consumption of tannic acid decreases bone density and interferes with the body’s ability to absorb calcium. This leads to arthritis, an inflammatory disease of the joints. Symptoms include insomnia, muscular aches and pain (especially during movement), disfigured hands and feet, weight loss, and fatigue.
Due to pain during movement, most people who suffer from arthritis are reluctant to exercise, yet physical exercise is the very thing that can help alleviate the symptoms of arthritis. Caregivers, home health aides, and companions are helpful when it comes to executing the doctor’s orders for your loved ones. They provide emotional support, motivation and physical assistance in the comfort of your own home if family members are away at work or carrying on with their own lives.
