I was diagnosed with arthritis of the spine which of course spread to every joint in my body about ten years ago. Having never been one to pop any type of pills, I did look for natural ways to combat this without checking with my physician an this was one of the books I used. I am not saying that the information is no good, it's just as they tell you it will work for some people and for some it will not. I was one that did not benefit from this. Whatever you do, never quit taking your medication unless you have the consent of your healthcare provider or they are aware that you are looking at alternative methods.
This book is a step-by-step guide to healing arthritis naturally. It could cover any type of inflammatory disease it is similar to an elimination diet. It guides you to prevention by finding food allergies. There are lots of lists on what foods are highly allergic, what foods are most aggravating, what foods help reduce inflammation. From there, it tells you how to prepare and test foods to see if it causes a reaction. The book also covers a six-step program to overcoming arthritis. This six-step program starts with a detox plan for five days eating salads, soups and juices, two days of water only. I haven’t attempted to go five days like that. I’d never make it. But overall it is full of information and the focus is on natural, whole foods. There is a large section on malnutrition, food additives and chemicals. I would highly recommend the book to anyone with arthritis or other autoimmune disease. Just take what you can from the book and leave the rest.
