Strong Women and Men Beat Arthritis

Strong Women and Men Beat Arthritis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than forty million Americans have arthritis, a disease of joint deterioration that costs people everything they take for granted. But with breakthrough research that she conducted with fellow Tufts scientists Kristin Baker and Ronenn Roubenoff, Miriam E. Nelson has developed a plan that people can use to actually reverse the pain and immobility that arthritis causes-right in their own homes.

Those people with arthritis who participated in the groundbreaking Tufts study experienced a 43 percent reduction in pain, a 44 percent improvement in physical function, and a 71 percent improvement in strength. This book offers readers the exact same lifestyle "tools" that the Tufts team gave its subjects:

* an exercise program designed specifically to protect the joints and ameliorate stiffness and soreness

* an eating plan to reduce inflammation and pain

* a guide to the latest medications and complementary therapies

* strategies for overcoming arthiritis-related depression.

Synopsis:

The author of "Strong Women Stay Young" and her fellow Tufts University scientists offer a simple plan that is proven to reduce the pain and immobility caused by arthritis. The bestseller includes an exercise program, a scientifically based eating plan, a hands-on guide to the latest medications, and more.
