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.
