New Year’s Resolutions: Arthritis

By J. R. Rogers

Every year around this time I listen to those who suffer from arthritis and their New Year’s Resolutions. Typically, they all say “I am going to lose some weight.”

Arthritis and excess pounds

There is no doubt about it. Excess pounds are a real problem for those suffering from arthritis. Extra weight puts stress on joints that are already damaged and it only makes matters worse. And, it is really a problem when your lower body is affected by arthritis. (Knees; hips; ankles, etc.)

Be realistic and do it

It is a good time to do this. The extra weight gained during the holidays is an issue and if you had any excess “baggage” before the season it is time to respond.

However, do not set goals that are unrealistic. Shoot for 1-2 pounds a week and enough exercise and diet changes to make it happen. And, once you do take off the pounds keep them off.

I have said this for years. Use a high-quality liquid Glucosamine like Syn-flex®; exercise; and, eat sensibly. After all, the Syn-fex® not only knocks out pain it also rehabilitates damaged cartilage. Lose the weight and make some real gains on your overall well being.

The exercise is easy

Just make the time to do it. A simple walk in the park every day can make a huge difference. And, if you have a family pet who has gained a little extra take them along with you. After all, the entire family wins this way.

See you next time.

ps. Happy New Year to you all.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain

These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.

This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.

If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.

The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
