Symptoms, conditions and causes

What are the potential causes for joint pain?

Joint pain is a problem that can be resolved by nutrition and proper diet. Certain foods and nutrients can reduce the inflammation and speed the recovery process of your joints and bones.

Cause #1: Nutritional deficiencies

When you are lacking certain vitamins in your body it can cause a lot of joint pain. This is because these certain vitamins are required for the healthy functioning of your joints and body tissues.

Vitamin D3 is one of the most powerful natural anti-inflammatory vitamins. It will help with joint pain and reduce inflammation.

Vitamin K2 is a vital nutrient that helps to move excess calcium deposits from your joints into your bones.

Vitamin C helps to develop and repair bones and joints in your body by making collagen (proteins for bones and joints). If you have fatigue in addition to joint pain that’s a good indicator of vitamin C deficiency.

Colostrum is a great anti-inflammatory and a good supplement for joint pain.

Vitamin D3 (get 20,000 to 40,000 IU daily):

  • Consume cod liver oil

  • Get more exposure to the sun

  • Take a vitamin D3 supplement

Vitamin K2 (get 300 to 400 mcg daily):

  • Consume vitamin K2-rich foods:

    • grass-fed milk

    • cheese

    • butter

    • goose liver

    • grass-fed organic egg yolks

  • Get vitamin K2 supplement (MK-7 version)

Vitamin C:

  • Consume vitamin C-rich foods:

    • sauerkraut

    • bell pepper

    • berries

    • raw lemons

  • Take natural vitamin C complex (not ascorbic acid)

  • Avoid refined carbs and sugar

  • Avoid snacking

  • Consume colostrum for joint pain

Cause #2: Mycotoxins

Mycotoxins are various poisons which are released from mold and fungus that can affect your joints and your immune system in a bad way. One thing to know is that consuming refined carbs and sugar will worsen the problem as mold and fungus live on sugar and carbs.


  • If you have mold in your house, locate and get rid of it

  • Avoid antibiotics

  • Avoid sweets and carbs

  • Consume grapefruit seed oil

  • Consume bentonite clay

  • Consume garlic

  • Do the Healthy Keto® diet

  • Do an intermittent fasting plan

Cause #3: Omega-6 fatty acids

When you consume certain oils that contain omega-6 fatty acids, they can greatly spike the inflammation in your body and this alone can cause you to have joint pain. The solution would be to avoid foods with omega-6 fatty acids and to consume more foods with omega-3 fatty acids (these are anti-inflammatory).


  • Avoid foods containing omega-6 fats:

  • corn oil

  • soy oil

  • canola oil

  • cottonseed oil

  • sunflower oil

  • vegetable oils in general

  • too many nuts

  • Substitute with these oils containing omega-3:

  • butter

  • olive oil

  • coconut oil

  • cod liver oil

  • high-quality fish oil

  • Consume fatty fish

  • Consume sardines

Other causes:

  • Muscle compensation

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • DJD (degenerative joint disease)

  • Gallbladder problem (indicated by right shoulder pain)

  • Injuries

  • Sacroiliac (S-I)
