Overview

If you are among the millions of adults who have joint problems, relief is finally here. You may have tried glucosamine and chondroitin or other supplements. You may take prescription drugs for your pain. But now, for the first time anywhere, The Joint Health Prescription gives you a program of simple steps that you can take in your daily life to actually improve your joint health and restore your joints to better condition -- in as little as 8 weeks!

Based on a landmark study by James M. Rippe, M.D., this unique program combines everyday exercise (such as walking and gardening) with stretching and strengthening routines, weight management, and nutritional strategies, including gelatin-based and other dietary supplements. Together, these elements create a powerful program that can help you heal and protect your joints -- and even reduce or end joint pain.

You'll learn:
- Why gelatin works with your body's natural processes to rebuild cartilage, a major component of joints
- How to evaluate your joint health with a series of easy tests
- The role that genetics plays in the severity of joint pain
- The best forms of exercise to reduce your pain
- Which supplements and herbs may offer arthritis relief, and which ones you should avoid
- How to customize the 8-week program to fit your individual needs

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Far more than an advertisement for the new gelatin supplements it touts, this book contains an all-inclusive plan to eradicate joint pain through appropriate levels of exercise, a proper diet, and, yes, the new gelatin-based supplement that yielded such remarkable responses in a study conducted by the Rippe Lifestyle Institute. One of the main components of the plan is exercise -- Dr. Rippe stresses that the right kind of exercise is just as important as the frequency, and extensive charts are provided to help readers gauge their exercise level. Evaluations are offered for the numerous joint supplements now on the market, including glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM. The Joint Health Prescription is an ideal source of information for readers looking to avoid joint pain, as well as those seeking to alleviate the pain of osteoarthritis and other joint ailments.

    Recovering from and Avoiding Joint Injury

    Summary: This book contains the results of a successful randomized, prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled test of nutrional supplements and exercise to treat knee problems. The results are formulated into an 8 week program of Knox NutraJoint (10 oz. a day fortified with vitamin C and calcium), exercise, stretching, and weight control. You also receive directions for how to work with physicians and alternative therapies for joint problems, and to build a program of maintaining joint health. In the test, many subjects improved on both this regimen and on the placebo, but those with moderate pain showed significant improvement and greater flexibility from the program test. Review: The study that this book is based on is a well-designed and executed one to find ways to deal with the underlying causes of joint problems. Most physicians treat these issues with pain relievers alone. The research here is important, because more than half of all adults have joint problems. And joint problems are the leading cause of disability. At any time, a third of all adults are having problems with one or more joints. Frequent causes are loss of cartilage (the cushioning between the bones), injury, and stress (often caused by too much weight). Prevention of joint problems is basically a function of exercising joints, keeping muscles strong, and having proper nutrition. The book has a series of questions and tests that you can self-administer to diagnose the degree of your joint issues, and to design the appropriate exercise programs for your age, problems, physical fitness, and flexibility. The Joint Health Prescription contains many stories of people who were helped by this treatment during the trials. Relief is not instantaneous. You may have to wait several weeks before you notice any differences. Those in the trials were quite good about following the program. Around 80 percent finished all 18 visits over 14 weeks, and those consumed 92 percent of the nutritional supplements. So, you probably really do need to be observant about doing these things. I thought that the weakest part of the book related to losing weight. That's a bigger subject than can be handled in a book like this, but the material here is pretty good if overly focused on calorie counting. It also prescribes the same diet for everyone, which doesn't appear to work very well from the research behind Live Right 4 Your Type. You may wish to use that book as a resource instead if you need to lose some weight to reduce stress on joints. Dr. Rippe also operates a center for these problems in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts so you can also visit there for testing and diagnosis. I hope that many other common problems will receive research on nutrition and exercise as well. I wonder if other common ailments would respond equally as well. Dr. Dean Ornish showed that he could help people reverse heart disease and pain of angina with diet and exercise. Perhaps many of our diseases that the aged population suffers from are really the result of bad diets and lack of exercise. After you read and apply these lessons, I suggest that you think about whether your mind is getting as much exercise as your joints need. Are you feeding your mind with high quality reading material? Are you examining heavier material from time to time in your reading? Are you stretching your thinking to create greater flexibility in what you do? And . . . are you finding ways to read and exercise at the same time? I like to read while on the treadmill. 'Use it or lose it.' Donald Mitchell, co-author of The Irresistible Growth Enterprise and The 2,000 Percent Solution
