Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The author of Back Rx returns with another revolutionary approach to healing a painful, debilitating condition. Like its predecessor, Arthritis Rx emphasizes a non-drug regimen that combines an anti-inflammatory nutrition plan; simple yoga- and Pilates-based exercises; breathing practices; and state-of-the-art techniques and supplements.
Library Journal
One in five Americans was diagnosed with some form of arthritis in 2004, and these two arthritis management books address that problem. A newly discovered treatment is the mineral clay complex SierraSil, and in Mineral Miracle, nutrition specialist Lieberman (Univ. of Bridgeport, CT; The Real Vitamin and Mineral Book) and researcher Xenakis (founder, XenaCare) promote its efficacy and safety while cautioning against "magic bullet" treatments. They also summarize the science of mineral use in the body and the physiology of arthritis, as well as including an action plan for achieving good health. The effusive personal promotion of SierraSil is impressive, but the research conclusions, presented as definitive, seem fairly tepid. Arthritis Rx by physician and researcher Vad (rehabilitation medicine, Cornell Univ.; Back Rx) recommends a three-pronged regimen consisting of diet, nutritional supplements, and exercise. Vad recognizes that there is currently no cure for arthritis, only management strategies. He promotes dietary changes involving foods shown to have anti-inflammatory properties (a sample day-by-day menu and recipes are included), yoga- and Pilates-based exercises, and a nutritional supplement mix. He also provides a primer on the science of arthritis, techniques for learning "deep breathing," and photos of each exercise/yoga position. In the spirit of "let the buyer beware," Lieberman's book is guardedly recommended for public libraries. As for Arthritis Rx, many other arthritis management books also suggest diet, supplements, and exercise, but Vad's plan incorporates a specific combination of the three and so is recommended for public libraries.-Andy Wickens, King Cty.

    great program combining diet, exercise and supplements

    This well written book gives the arthritis sufferer the basic tools needed including an excellent section on nutrition combined with supplements and exercises. In addition, there is a whole section devoted to latest treatments for arthritis. The most comprehensive book I have read on arthritis so far!!!
