Did you know that...* the catch-all term 'arthritis' actually consists of six different disease groups? * over-the-counter pain relief medication could speed up the progress of arthritis? * some treatments for arthritis could have life-threatening side effects? * surgery does not guarantee healing and could lead to more serious conditions? In the traditional Western medical world, most patients aren't told the full story of arthritis and how to get better. Nor are they told about some of the limitations of conventional treatments. In this book, the team at What Doctors Don't Tell You, the internationally respected health magazine and website, draws on 27 years of research into conventional and unconventional treatments and presents its findings to help you make informed decisions about your health, and the health of your family.
This ground-breaking book explains that you don't have to accept arthritis as an unwelcome consequence of growing older. It reveals a wide array of options to relieve pain, improve movement and even reverse the condition, including dietary changes, complementary medicines, supplements and mind-body therapies - many with a proven track record of success. This is a must-read for anyone with arthritis who has been told that nothing can be done to help them.
