Arthritis affects millions of people throughout the world and while its treatment is usually medical or surgical, there exists an increasingly large body of evidence concerning the positive effects of nutrition on the condition. There are over two hundred forms of rheumatoid disease, with conditions varying in prevalence. In this important title the authors have focussed on osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), the most common arthritic diseases with the largest body of dietary data. Including coverage of disease incidence and prevalence, pathology, aetiology and measures of disease assessment and dietary risk factors, Nutrition and Arthritis is a clear, concise and user-friendly book gathering the latest research to bring the reader state-of-the-art information on: Micronutrients (e.g. vitamins C, D and selenium), food supplements and their potential to ameliorate arthritis Polyunsaturated fatty acids, with particular attention paid to n-3 fatty acids Glucosamine and chondroitin The value of exclusion, vegetarian, vegan and other dietary approaches Nutritionists and dietitians, including those working in the health services, rheumatologists, orthopaedic surgeons, general practitioners, osteopaths and commercial organisations involved in the formulation of dietary supplements will find this book an important and practical reference source. Libraries in medical schools and universities and research establishments where nutrition, dietetics and food science are studied and taught will find it a valuable addition to their shelves.

A small book stressing the importance of the part Diet does play in causing most arthritic pains. It also deals with certain points gained from experience which ought to be useful both to doctors and patients, for example, how to treat Shingles, early, and have no pain. Though many of the recommendations are perhaps old-fashioned, they are still in use because they have been found to be useful. That after all is the benefit of experience. "What the ignorant and most doctors and nurses to know know it that there is an optimum position for burping. Babies should always be burped on the right shoulder which allows the gas to escape. On the left shoulder the infant will vomit." "Beaver Fever" is well known in the Canadian Rockies. And, again in the Himalayas . Those clear mountain streams are not, as supposed, filled with pure water but are Nature's lavatory. Brittle, Dry Nails: These are always improved by painting them daily or, when possible, with Almond Oil. Stones in the Kidney may be removed usually by eating that White Radish (Saphanus Rativus L.) called Moolie, or DAIKON in Japan. Taken three times a day as a soup, steamed or raw in a salad the stones will appear within a few days. (Depending of course on how big and how long they have been there!) For this purpose it is mentioned also in Nicholas Culpeper's Herbal of 1653.

The End of Pain

How Nutrition and Diet Can Fight Chronic Inflammatory Disease

For years Jacqueline Lagacé suffered from debilitating chronic arthritis pain in her hands, spine, and knees. Conventional medicine failed to provide any relief, and Lagacé, a medical researcher, began searching for alternatives. That search brought her to the work of Dr. Jean Seignalet, an expert in nutrition therapy, who used targeted nutrition to treat patients suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases. His approach was called the hypotoxic diet, and he achieved an 80 percent success rate with it. By following his dietary regime, Lagacé experienced alleviation of the pain in her hands within ten days and regained the use of her hands in 16 months. Her severe back and knee pain were also greatly reduced. In The End of Pain, Lagacé explores how our bodies are at war with our modern Western diet. She thoroughly investigates the science behind treating inflammatory disease with nutritional therapy and explains why consuming wheat, dairy products, and animal proteins cooked at high temperatures disrupts the balance of intestinal flora and spurs the growth of pathogenic rather than beneficial bacteria, citing recent scientific studies showing how and why these foods are potentially pro-inflammatory. The End of Pain is where relief begins.
