Alternative Medicine Magazine’s Definitive Guide to Weight Loss: 10 Healthy Ways to Permanently Shed Unwanted Pounds
Arthritis is not an inevitable part of growing old. Don’t suffer with pain and inflammation: you can reduce and even reverse the effects of arthritis naturally. Arthritis: An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide shows you how to pinpoint the underlying factors leading to arthritis and then provides proven, nontoxic, and successful ways for you to heal or prevent it. Start with the alternative therapies in this book to revive stiff, tired joints and regain an active lifestyle.
An Illness like arthritis is not something you have to live with-alternative medicine has practical solutions for identifying and treating the underlying causes and can bring lasting relief to arthritis sufferers. Many people have learned this the hard way, living with discomfort, pain, and inflammation for years before discovering that there is another option. Alternative medicine recognizes that arthritis does not have one cause, but multiple factors that together overload your body systems. Looking at illness and health in this way makes for more effective treatment than the single-cause focus of conventional medicine. In this book, you will learn that once you identify the hidden factors that are combining to produce your arthritis, you can treat each one and permanently eliminate joint pain and inflammation. Patient success stories throughout the book provide practical details on how others were able to reverse their arthritis.
Today, an estimated 43 million Americans have some form of arthritis-rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, or infectious arthritis. That’s one in every six people, making it one of the most prevalent chronic health problems. For many arthritis sufferers, the disease limits their everyday activities and movements walking or even buttoning a shirt can be a painful experience. And it’s estimated that arthritis costs $65 billion per year in health-care costs and lost work time. Conventional medicine offers nonsteroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, and other drug treatments that may temporarily relieve arthritis symptoms, but also introduce side effects that may actually accelerate the destruction of cartilage in the joints.
Alternative medicine physicians, on the other hand, focus on finding the root causes, rather than merely trying to alleviate symptoms. In this book, Eugene R. Zampieron, N.D., A.H.G., and Ellen Kamhi, Ph.D., R.N., H.N.C., show you how to prevent and reverse arthritis using safe, noninvasive, and proven alternative therapies. Alternative medicine looks at the whole person, considering the individual’s symptoms, health history, diet, and underlying imbalances. You can then use a combination of alternative treatments to heal these underlying causes leading to arthritis, bringing lasting relief, not a simple masking of symptoms. This is the basic principle of alternative medicine and the reason why it succeeds where conventional medicine often fails in the treatment of chronic disease.
Drs. Zampieron and Kamhi have years of experience treating arthritis and will show you how to keep your joints healthy and, if you already have arthritis, how you can reverse it. You’ll learn more about these self-help options:
- The Arthritis Diet-how to avoid foods that aggravate arthritis and increase foods that nourish joints and support healing (includes arthritis-friendly recipes).
- Safe and effective pain-stoppers-herbs and nutrients, vitamins and minerals, cartilage-building supplements, and homeopathic remedies.
- Exercises and effective physical therapies to improve joint flexibility and relieve pain and stiffness.
- The role of stress in arthritis and effective mind/body therapies to cope with stress.
This book is here to tell you that you don’t have to live with pain and inflammation, or with a continuing cycle of drugs and their side effects. By treating what is actually causing the condition, not only can arthritis be reversed but your overall health will be improved. God bless.

A clear explanation of botanical herbal medicine as practiced in this country. While the authors make clear that these substances can offer real benefit, they make equally and often inadvertently clear that self-diagnosis and treatment is not a reliable route to take. Naturopath Zampieron and Kamhi (a nurse with a doctorate in public health) give a brief, accurate history of botanical medicine in America including a fresh outlook on Andrew Carnegie’s “medical thug,” Abraham Flexner (Flexner’s 1910 Carnegie-funded report on medical education is revered in the allopathic establishment as a cornerstone of our current medical education and treatment systems, but it stopped the development of herbalism and other alternative therapies cold). Many herbalists work under the supervision of a licensed medical practitioner; interested readers can follow guidelines here for tracking down such herbalists. The authors discuss safety: natural does not mean safe, they point out, and give careful alerts as to interactions between herbal and pharmaceutical drugs, as well as the possibilities for abuse and allergic reactions. After describing what is known of the medicinal components found in herbs and how they are extracted to form useful preparations, Zampieron and Kamhi describe an extensive list of herbs and other plants (aloe, St. John’s Wort, parsley; also bananas, guava, pineapple, among many others). Intriguing and well-presented.
