For those suffering from arthritis and other inflammatory diseases, The Arthritis Bible is the most up-to-date and complete guide to alternative and conventional treatments. Forty-three million Americans—one in six—are afflicted with arthritis, yet the traditional medical community continues to offer only the limited treatments developed by institutions of Western medicine. And while many alternative therapies do provide relief, their true potential can be hard to evaluate amidst hype on one hand and unwarranted dismissal on the other.
The Arthritis Bible supplies the latest research on conventional drugs, exercise, physical therapy, diet, vitamins and minerals, traditional herbs, homeopathy, folk remedies, and more. It ranks remedies according to evidence of efficacy and historical use, making it an ideal aid in choosing the right medical approach and practitioner. Anyone seeking relief from the painful and often debilitating consequences of arthritic diseases will find The Arthritis Bible to be an indispensable resource.
