Many arthritis sufferers are not aware that a regime of natural therapies can greatly reduce arthritis pain. In Arthritis: The Doctors' Cure, the authors explain how diet, exercise, lifestyle modification, and glucosamine sulfate can both relieve pain and rebuild damaged joints with no adverse side effects. A guide for physicians and patients for whom traditional avenues of arthritis treatment offer limited pain relief, this book addresses the underlying causes of arthritis -- not merely its symptoms. Clearly written, this guide will benefit anyone seeking a better understanding of arthritis and a new way to overcome it.

Although many drugs are used in the treatment of arthritis, only glucosamine sulfate has been proven to relieve pain and stimulate joint regeneration, Arthritis: The Doctor's Cure is based on a comprehensive ten-step program consisting of the daily use of glucosamine sulfate along with proper diet, eliminating certain foods, aerobic exercise, weight loss (if necessary), avoidance of repetitive motion, use of biomechanics and ergonomics, stress reduction, and a positive perspective toward life.

Arthritis: The Doctors' Cure is the definitive guide for natural treatment of both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Containing more than 20 case studies proving the effectiveness of the program, it offers an alternative to drug-based treatments of arthritis, replacing them with natural and effective healing therapies that not only reduce or eliminate arthritis pain but also stimulate long-term healing.
