Here is the first major book on preventing arthritis, from the trusted authors of The Miracle of MSM. One of every five Americans will develop osteoarthritis, the painful degeneration of joints associated with aging. Osteoarthritis can destroy more than joints. It often leads to inactivity, obesity, depression, anxiety, and dependence on drugs, with serious side effects, and can increase the risk of developing life-threatening illnesses such as cardiovascular disease.
In Preventing Arthritis, Dr. Ronald M. Lawrence, a physician who has specialized in the study of pain for fifty years, lays out a menu of powerful natural options for arthritis prevention: diet, supplements, nontraumatic exercise, and specific yoga and self-massage techniques. He identifies the kinds of daily habits that cause structural stresses in the body, and even explains how sex may protect your joints. Sharing his clinical experience in helping more than 150,000 patients, Dr. Lawrence reveals the very latest in arthritis prevention research and gives recommendations based on his own practice as well as the work of medical experts from across the country.
There are many books on how to treat arthritis. This is the first to offer practical, effective plans for preventing the disease.
