    This book promotes the understanding and management of rheumatoid arthritis -- a very painful and distressing condition.

    The first part of the book presents the symptoms, causes and diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis, focusing on the nature of joint and muscle inflammation. Medications, nutritional supplements, food and other lifestyle factors are evaluated as well as how the body deals with inflammation. The spotlight is turned on how people with rheumatoid arthritis can reduce inflammation, but the information will also be very helpful for people who suffer from osteoarthritis, because the goal of the book is to help reduce the local inflammation in affected joints.

    Complete Arthritis Health and Diet Guide also looks at the factors in our foods that have been thought to promote inflammation and possibly contribute to feeling worse. The use of nutritional supplements is examined -- how they work and how they can interact with the medications. This information will allow for wise choices when shopping for supplements.

    The second half of the book is dedicated to providing a food guide that encourages choices from foods that help to reduce inflammation -- tasty recipes, sample menus and some simple steps that will help you to fuel your body with energy and the nutrients it needs to be at its peak performance. The goal of this book is to help you become aware of how the food you eat can influence how you feel.

    Improving your general health will have a positive impact on your arthritis so the menu plans and recipes are nutritious, delicious and anti-inflammatory. Recipes include nutritional analysis of the ingredients and tips for shopping for healthy foods. Easy to read tables and charts ensure that all the information you need is at your fingertips. There's a lot that can be done to manage arthritis and this book provides you with the necessary tools.
