Dr. Lori Shemek is BACK to weigh in on what you can do to help prevent and heal the pain in your joints!
When we are young, the last thing on our mind is aching joints. Unfortunately, with the passage of time, we tend to feel Father Time’s impact upon our joints leaving us in pain and affecting our gait or grip.
The good news is that there is much we can do to prevent and heal joint pain that impedes a quality life.
Check out my top 5 tips to kick joint pain to the curb!
1) Drink More Water
Staying adequately hydrated is a game-changer when it comes to alleviating joint pain.
Even when we are just 1-2% dehydrated, the cartilage in our joints becomes less flexible leading to pain. If you think of your joints like a sponge, imagine how much more easily two wet sponges can move against one another than two dry, hard sponges.
Additionally, water helps move toxins out of the joints that can exacerbate joint pain.
Ensure that you are using the right water to protect you from contaminants and water that optimizes cellular health, leading to a healthier life.
I recommend drinking ½ of your body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, if you weigh 120 lbs. drink a minimum of 60 ounces of water daily.

2) Eat to Heal Joints
Your diet is a key player when it comes to joint pain.
Research shows that certain foods, spices, and supplements may help in improving joint health and pain relief.
Diets such as the Mediterranean Diet help lower inflammation with every bite, and you can also opt for specific foods, such as:
- Cruciferous veggies (cauliflower, cabbage, arugula or broccoli)
- Fish and seafood that are high in omega 3 fats
- Spices and tea
Cruciferous veggies contain sulforaphane, an antioxidant compound that blocks an enzyme that causes joint pain and inflammation
Choosing wild fatty fish and seafood that are high in omega 3 fat and have anti-inflammatory benefits are particularly helpful for joint pain. Natural sources of omega 3 fats include cold-water fish, such as wild salmon, trout and sardines. Vegan and vegetarian sources included flaxseed, chia seeds or Algal oil.
Turmeric and ginger are spices noted for their powerful anti-inflammatory benefits. Green tea is also particularly potent. The polyphenols from green tea possess anti-inflammatory properties and have been shown to be very effective.
3) Move Your Body
Many people believe that if you have aching or stiff joints to not use them. They are either told or they assume they should stop being active because of their joint pain.
Research shows that moving is essential, as exercise helps to limit the pain and improve joint motion.
Movement helps create a healthier joint and increases the synovial fluid in your joints, which basically acts like lubrication that helps the joints move smoother.
Exercise also increases circulation in the body, bringing good oxygen and nutrients to the joints.
4) Use Targeted Supplementation
Keeping to a nutrient-rich diet is key to optimal joint health, as specific supplements can have a powerful therapeutic effect on joint healing and pain management.
While instituting other lifestyle choices such as exercise and diet, targeted supplementation can have an added benefit, such as:
- Vitamin D3
- Tart Cherry Extract
- Omega 3
Check with your doctor before using any supplements.
5) Lose Weight
Your weight has a powerful effect on the amount of pain you experience.
Excess weight puts more pressure on your joints and that equates to pain for you.
Reduce the joint stress by losing weight and this will markedly reduce pain and prevent future damage. In fact, every pound of excess weight exerts about 4 pounds of extra pressure on the knees.
Choosing healthier foods at every meal, eliminating snacking and increasing movement are keys to weight loss success.

What is the name of the machine you recommend and how much is the cost of the machine you recommend. I have read material about various machines: the Kangen, the Tyent, Alka Viva etc. All, of course claim to be the best. I have been hauling the ionized water (Kangen machine) in BPA containers for the past six months. From what I have read the water is supposed to be better for me. I am 75 years old and am not sure it does help. I have not felt anymore energy; I do not look any younger etc. My wife tried the water and thought it tasted like fish water. She has been opposed to me getting my own machine because of cost, and she thinks it really does not help. I drink a gallon of the Kangen water each day.
Hi, Henry. We’re sorry to hear about your experience with Kangen water, but we’re not surprised. While Kangen alkaline water is very similar to Tyent water, one of the major differences is that it’s not as purified or nutritious as Tyent hydrogen-rich alkaline water.
We’re not claiming to be the best, but we would like to offer a side by side comparison.
Tyent contains two large filters with a lot of filtering media in each filter, while Kangen only offers 1 small filter. If you hold our filters next to Kangen’s, you can see the size difference. Plus, we have a filter report that shows the over 200 contaminants that Tyent filters remove.
Their filters are just not as advanced as ours. When solid plates (Kangen/Enagic) alone are used, there is not enough electrolysis produced to provide optimum -ORP and pH levels, compared to our upgraded Solid/Mesh Hybrid plates. Plus, chemicals must be added to the Enagic water ionizer to get better pH results (maybe your wife is tasting the chemicals they put in it). On the other hand, Tyent is chemical-free.
In addition, the main benefit of the water, which is the molecular hydrogen, dissipates very soon after it comes out of the water ionizer. So, by keeping the water in bottles, you’re losing the most important benefit. It’s no wonder why you’re not feeling any difference. The water is best when it’s fresh from the water ionizer.
We also have 13 plates in our ACE-13 water ionizer compared to their 7 or 8 plate units. Tyent’s Solid/Mesh Hybrid plates offer the durability of a solid plate and go a step further by having electrolysis distribution holes strategically placed throughout to provide the most groundbreaking electrolysis chamber in the world. Our plates are platinum-coated titanium and dipped multiple times in platinum for strength and durability. What’s even better is that we offer a lifetime warranty on both parts and service! Kangen’s warranty is only 5 years, and it’s very limited. Kangen will void your warranty if you don’t send it in for service about every 6 months (which is a headache in itself). Plus, we offer a 75-day trial compared to Kangen’s 3-day trial.
As you can see, we’re just comparing the units side by side, and we’ll let you draw your own conclusion as to which machine is the best for you. You can own a Tyent machine when you apply for our financing program for as little as $25 per month. Please give us a call at 855-893-6887 so that our water ionizer experts can help answer any other questions that you have. One of our sales reps used to sell Kangen, so she would be a great person to talk to if you want to compare a bit more. We’d love to hear from you.
Hello, a very cool website!! Man .. Excellent .. Superb .. I will bookmark your site and take the feeds additionally…I’m glad to seek out so many helpful information right here within the post, thanks for sharing.
Hi, Penny. We’re glad that our article is of great assistance to you. Check out our article on Tyent water ionizers if you’re interested to know how beneficial our machines are to your health.
On your site I came across a term called Hydrogen Boost. What does this mean? Do all of your ionizers have that?
Hi, Marco. Our Xtreme Molecular Hydrogen Boost feature is an expression of recent Tyent ionizer models’ improved ability to produce molecular hydrogen as compared to earlier models, which were designed before the benefits of H2 were understood. The newer chamber and power supply in our ionizers were designed with optimized H2 production in mind and can produce more H2 at the same relative pH levels. This is called Xtreme Molecular Hydrogen Boost.
Xtreme Molecular Hydrogen Boost can be found in Tyent’s UCE-13 and UCE-11 Turbo models, the ACE-13 and ACE-11 Turbo models, and the Hybrid, as well.
If you want to know more about this feature, you can call us at 855-893-6887.
