Unclear book Feb 4, 2006
Not my favorite arthritis book. Too scattered in its approach. I was left confused and a little overwhelmed...but to be fair there is also a lot of very good information to be found within the pages...
Natural therapies to end arthritis pain Feb 23, 2004
I highly recommend this book to anyone who has arthritis and who wants to end the pain using a lifestyle approach. The good doctor has given a multifaceted and holistic program that teaches readers how to change lifestyle habits to decrease pain and become more active. The chapter on the PAIN-FREE ARTHRITIS DIET was extremely beneficial to me, as I have rheumatoid arthritis. I was not aware of the food/inflammation/arthritis connection, so this report is cutting edge compared to other books in print.
If you want to stop pain without relying on medications that can cause harmful side effects, then read this book. I guarantee it will change your life and pain--as it has mine.
Excellent guide for fibromyalgia/osteoarthritis/rheumatoid Feb 20, 2004
If you wish you could ask your doctor questions about getting relief from arthritis pain and stiffness, you could find the answers in this book. Drs. McIlwain and Bruce offer incredibly reasonable and easy to understand suggestions for alleviating arthritis pain that is based on the latest medical journal studies. Pain-Free Arthritis gave me new insight into exercise as a method for ending pain--and it works! I've also found relief using the PAIN-FREE diet, focusing on fresh fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants and phytochemicals.
This book can help you to understand the various types of arthritis but, more importantly, it motivates you to take action to overcome the pain, stiffness and immmobility and reclaim your active life.
Particularly appealing to me was the information on natural therapies and botanicals, yoga positions for alleviating pain, and the advances in medications to end pain safely and effectively.
This book is extremely reader-friendly--and the program is first in the book, so you turn the page and find relief! It does not overwhelm you with medical verbage yet is well-researched. The program is sound and I highly recommend to arthritis sufferers of all ages.
Superb program for stopping fibromyalgia pain and stiffness. Feb 19, 2004
This book is the best of all I've read on fibromyalgia, as well as different types of arthritis. The program is easy to understand and implement--and there is scientific substantiation to give the methods credibility. I found that I needed less medication within four weeks of starting this program. I recommend this book to anyone with FMS--and hope it gives you back your active life as it did with me.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE WITH ARTHRITIS Feb 19, 2004
I have osteoarthritis and I have been searching for something that can tell me WHAT REALLY WORKS to end this pain. I mean, I'm only forty years old but years of playing basketball has worn out my knees. This book is a superb program that details specifically what works for diff. types of arthritis such as knee or hip. The section on natural therapies was especially helpful and the chapter on cutting edge medications was great. I learned a lot--that I did not know and that my doctor never told me!! Oh--the part on stress and pain was enlightening. I've been doing the exercises daily and also the moist heat applications as described in the first part of the book. I have FOUND RELIEF FROM knee osteoarthritis--finally. BUY THIS BOOK AND LIVE YOUR LIFE AGAIN
