Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. This is the form that usually comes with age and most often affects the fingers, knees, and hips. Sometimes osteoarthritis follows an injury to a joint. For example, a young person might hurt his knee badly playing soccer. Then, years after the knee has apparently healed, he might get arthritis in his knee joint.

is perhaps the most remarkable herb to be studied in many, many years. Originating in the Peruvian rain forest, Cat's Claw contains six oxindole alkaloids, three of which have been proven to be effective immuno-stimulants. This herb has an unusual ability to cleanse and de-toxify the entire digestive tract, thereby correcting nutritional imbalances caused by digestive blockages. Dr. Brent Davis has worked with cat's claw since 1988 and calls it "the opener of the way".
