Hip pain and stiffness are some of the most common complaints of people as they age. However, these are less age related or genetic problems and more about bad habits catching up with you.
Our bodies are very resilient. They cope with a huge amount of abuse. But they can’t do this indefinitely. At some point, your body will start to object and it does this by signs and symptoms.
The Medical Approach
Your doctor will tell you that the only way to go is down the drug and surgery path. But this doesn’t heal the problem or deal with the cause. This process only masks the problem. Drugs will only work for a while. There is quite a short life to replacement joints. After one, others are normally needed.
And the toll on your immune system is immense. You will likely be much more prone to catching virus’ and other pathogens that you were previously immune to.
Doctors like to blame genetics on every chronic disease, but this is far from true. Certainly they do have an effect on you, but it is tiny compared with other factors.
Another aspect that you are never told about, is that by suppressing your natural signs and symptoms, your body badly deteriorates. Joint replacement tends to lead to heart problems in a few short years.

The Real Problems and the Healthy Solutions
The other, far more significant areas that contribute to poor health is diet and environmental factors. And you have a lot of control over these, so you can get rid of the areas that are adversely affecting your health.
The common western diet is a sad story. It is nutrient deficient and highly toxic. By the time you reach 40 or 50, you have a lot of accumulated toxins in your body and it has been struggling for decades without the nutrition it needs.
No wonder hip pain and stiffness, along with other problems, ensue.
So what can you do?
The first things you need to do is to get rid of the toxins and start eating nutritious food. Just doing those alone may be all you need to do to free yourself of pain.
Non-Nutritious Food and Nutritious food
The foods humans should not be eating include:
- processed, packaged, ‘dead’ food
- junk food
- milk and all the products from milk, which contain 60 hormones
- all animal products, which are carcinogenic to us
The foods humans evolved on and so should be eating include:
- fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds in abundance
- mostly raw, but some cooked is acceptable
The China Study shows clearly how a vegan diet sheds chronic disease and improves longevity.
Changing to such a diet over night would not be possible for most people. But the faster you can the better your health will be. Starting with lots of fresh fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies is one of the best ways. Because they are nutrient dense, you will not be craving your normal food as much. Even if you do still eat badly the rest of the time, you are giving your body a chance to de-tox as well as upping the nutrient level.
The Environmental Factors
The second area you have control over, at least to some extent, is your environment.
– If your home or your garden contains toxins substances, you will be adversely affected.
– If you live or work with people who put you under constant stress, it will impact on your health.
– If you are taking medication, these are chemicals that affect your overall health, so you need to find ways to get off them safely.
Genes do affect your health, but they affect it more in the expression of the disease you have, rather than in the cause. For example, if you take ten people of similar background, age and gender, and they all eat the same diet and have the same stresses and toxins in their environment, they will all have health issues. But in different areas. One may have hip pain and stiffness. Another a skin rash. Another a respiratory problem. Another may get a UTI. Another may come down with digestive issues.
It isn’t your genes that are at fault. They simply give your ‘dis-ease’ an individual expression. It’s your diet and your environment that are the causes. And you can change those easily.
