Easing the Pain of Arthritis Naturally: Everything You Need to Know to Combat Arthritis Safely and Effectively: Easyread Super Large 20pt Edition
In this book, you'll learn everything you need to know about arthritis and how to combat it safely and effectively. Chapter 1 provides basic information on arthritis- what it is, how it develops, and the lifestyle changes that can help keep its painful symptoms to a minimum. As it is important to understand the actual causes of inflammation, Chapter 2 presents the process that causes joints to ache and swell. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and COX-2 inhibitors- the drugs prescribed for alleviating arthritis pain- are discussed in Chapter 3. The drawbacks of these and other common drugs prescribed for arthritis also are discussed here. Subsequent chapters focus on many nutritional and complementary treatments that can ease arthritis pain and inflammation, including supplements, herbs (particularly ginger), alternative therapies, and exercise. In these chapters, you'll learn about safe, effective natural remedies that work synergistically with your body's natural tendency toward healing and balance, rather than against them.
