HEALTH / ALTERNATIVE HEALTH

The Arthritis Bible is an outstanding resource to anyone with arthritic symptoms, as it blends the best of conventional and complementary medicine to help alleviate the pain and suffering in these patients.”
--Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C., author of Optimum Health

For those suffering from arthritis and other inflammatory diseases, The Arthritis Bible is the most up-to-date and complete guide to alternative and conventional treatments. Forty-three million Americans--one in six--are afflicted with arthritis, yet the traditional medical community continues to offer only the limited treatments developed by institutions of Western medicine. And while many alternative therapies do provide relief, their true potential can be hard to evaluate amidst hype on one hand and unwarranted dismissal on the other.

The Arthritis Bible supplies the latest research on conventional drugs, exercise, physical therapy, diet, vitamins and minerals, traditional herbs, homeopathy, folk remedies, and more. It ranks remedies according to evidence of efficacy and historical use, making it an ideal aid in choosing the right medical approach and practitioner. Anyone seeking relief from the painful and often debilitating consequences of arthritic diseases will find The Arthritis Bible to be an indispensable resource.

CRAIG WEATHERBY is a journalist and writer who has specialized in nutrition, herbs, and complementary therapies since 1987. His research for The Arthritis Bible spanned two years and entailed extensive study of conventional rheumatology, therapeutic nutrition, physical therapy, infectious etiology of rheumatic diseases, and botanical medicines. LEONID GORDIN, M.D., a board-certified member of the Academy of Pain Management, is an expert in “functional medicine,” the fully scientific approach to holistic medicine that focuses on proven connections between the body’s physical and mental systems. He is also trained in physical medicine, rehabilitation, prolotherapy, water-therapy, homeopathy, reflexology, and acupuncture.
