The Arthritis Cure : The Medical Miracle That Can Halt, Reverse, and May Even Cure Osteoarthritis

by Jason Theodosakis, Barry Fox, Brenda D. Adderly

Health and Fitness Editor's Recommended Book

The word "cure" in the title is a bit misleading, but this book certainly makes a persuasive argument in favor of treating osteoarthritis with two common nutritional supplements--glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates--and following a program emphasizing better nutrition and exercise. The supplements are commonly used in Europe and Asia, where they've been tested in double-blind, placebo-controlled studies (the gold standard for medical research). They haven't been thoroughly tested in the United States, the authors contend, because drug companies can't patent the supplements and thus won't fund the research. The book also contains a chapter detailing a seven-step arthritis-prevention program.


Four decades of medical research from around the world has shown that two nutritional supplements - glucosamine and chondroitin sulfates - can halt, reverse, and even cure osteoarthritis. After combing the medical research and analyzing his own study results, Dr. Theodosakis has, in this book, provided a complete approach to the treatment of arthritis. In The Arthritis Cure, you will find the complete nine-step Arthritis Cure program, a full (and understandable) analysis of the reams of medical research, and a seven-step strategy for preventing osteoarthritis. Moreover, Dr. Theodosakis has listed invaluable information on dosage and the products currently on the market. He also tells you the truth about painkillers, gives you realistic diet and exercise programs to follow, and helps you overcome the blues that come with any chronic condition.
