Get Educated, Get Better By Kim Patterson Unless you're illiterate, I can't think of a single reason for anyone with painful arthritis to not read this book. It's cheap, can be delivered right to your door, and gives the reader a wealth of info about arthritis. Here's some of what it can do for you: -helps you undertand what is going on in arthritic joints -covers what supplements have been shown to help fight arthritis. And just running out to the store and buying a bottle of "glucosamine" isn't good enough- the book will help you choose specific brands that the author has meticulously evaluated. Dosages are also covered. -provides you with a specific 9-step program -discusses painkillers -goes through the role of exercise in arthritis and how to choose the best type for you As you can see, the book covers a lot of information and is very complete- in fact there's even a section on beating the blues that can affect a lot of people with arthritis. So if you have painful arthritis and are looking for a resource to point you in the right direction, I suggest checking out this book. It's cheap, helpful, and based on a lot of sound science. Other research-based books on arthritis I liked include Treat Your Own Knee Arthritis. 51 of 67 people found the following review helpful. The Arthritis Cure-Revised Edition By Jon Raven Dr. Theo has done it again! Newsweek Magazine was right, "Arthritis treatment will never be the same." And it certainly hasn't been since the 1997 original. The good doctor was the first to enlighten us to Glucosamine, Chondroitin and SAMe, all evidence-based treatments that work. After much ridicule by 'old school' doctors, and manufacturers of traditional pain killers, Dr. Theo's suggestions are now accepted by most doctors and Arthritis foundations worldwide. Much is new since 1997 and Dr. Theo includes all of the latest breakthroughs including an entirely new, disease-improving treatment called AVOSOY. It's the first fully vegetarian arthritis product. There is info on this product at drtheo . com. Also new is a comprehensive chapter on arthritis prevention, something needed badly since 1 in 3 adults will develop arthritis symptoms, and over 90% will have it on x-ray by age 55. This disease starts 10-20 years before you feel symptoms, so prevention is important. The books is over 50% new or updated. New supplements, drugs, diet chapter, exercises and a detailed explanation of how those prescription and pain relievers can accelerate cartilage loss, something we should avoid. Read this book. Thank you Dr. Theo! 7 of 8 people found the following review helpful. What supplements to take, exercises, diet, different joint ailments By Thomas Erickson I suffer from joint pain in the the hands, and knee and have been diagnosed with Osteoarthritis. Dr. Jason Theodosakis book is well written and a good read. He gives massive evidence why you should go on a Glucosamine, Chondroitin, ASU supplement regiment to relieve Osteoarthritis. He also shows the different pain relievers many which only mask the symptoms and give bad side effects taken long term. He also shows eating a proper diet like the Mediterranean diet will help relieve pain and you will lose weight to take pressure off joints. Later he gives a list of other joint diseases and what drugs and supplements may or may not help. Dr. Theo stresses to be very careful about buying Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and ASU supplements as the MAJORITY of different companies products independently lab tested failed miserably as to the actual amount and purity of the Glucosamine, Chondroitin, and Asu advertised. Many, many companies trying to cut corners to lower their cost. I was on Glucosamine and Chondroitin years ago ( ASU was not on the market) and may have not been on long enough to feel improvement or may have used an inferior brand. Little pain relief. I have been on the Mediterranean diet
