    1. Secondary Osteoarthritis in Athletes
    For anyone involved in sports activities, injuries are a way of life. It doesn't matter if you engage in these activities professionally or for recreation, you are at risk all the time.
    2. The Exercise Component of Healing Osteoarthritis
    When we experience pain, it is nature’s way of telling us that something is wrong with our body. Pain comes in two different forms: Acute pain is that which generally lasts less than 5-6 weeks. Chronic pain is the kind that seems to go on forever and is the most typical for those suffering from osteoarthritis.
    3. Can Fido or Fluffy make it as Vegetarians? (part 2)
    In our last article we talked about the importance of diet. If your pet has arthritis or joint-related problems, it becomes very important to do the right thing with diet. (Of course, it is for all pets.)

Easing Arthritis Pain

By J. R. Rogers

Over the years we have talked about many things that help in reducing arthritis pain and managing it better. Of course, no one ever wants to talk about some of the easiest steps that you can take.

Without a doubt, the use of a high-quality liquid Glucosamine like Syn-flex® is a great start. But, you cannot ignore the fact that sensible eating and at least some moderate exercise is a big asset in this battle.

I was reading a recent study conducted by some researchers at U.S. institutions. And, they divided degrees of exercise (all walking) to see if they could find a difference. Of interest, they did find some things out about this that I find interesting given that this was a two-year study.

Speed and frequency
To begin with, the studies involved individuals who walked thirty (30) minutes a day 5-7 days a week. Now, let’s look at the factors that made a difference.

These studies concluded that those who walked fast and frequently gained the most benefit. (Cardiovascular and aerobic). No surprise there. However, those who walked less frequently and even those who walked at a slower speed did well. And, it is important to say that if walking lasted at least half an hour even medium speeds and less frequency were winners.

Arthritis and walking
Of course, for those who suffer from arthritis it pays to keep the pounds off. But, if you are gaining an edge with your heart and cholesterol levels it seems to me to be a very wise investment of your time.

I have said it before and say it again. You can beat arthritis if you are willing to devote a little time doing it. And, this study is one more important statement about the overall health benefits of a little time spent walking. It is a great aerobic exercise and one that is easy on your body.

See you next time.

Healthy Foods in Fighting Arthritis

Citrus Chicken Kabobs


1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup lime juice
1 8oz can pineapple chunks, drained and save the juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 lemon
1 lime
1 small orange
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 green pepper
1/2 red pepper
1 cup whole mushrooms1 small red onion


Combine orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, pineapple juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Whisk juices together well. Reserve 1/2 cup of this marinade mixture. Place chicken in a large ziploc bag and add the remaining marinade. Chill at least 2 hours, turning the bag frequently to coat the chicken. Cut peppers and onions into 1 inch chunks. Slice the mushrooms in half. Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Remove chicken from the marinade and cut into 1 inch pieces. Cut lemon, lime and orange into 1-2 inch pieces. Thread skewers with the fruits, vegetables and chicken in an alternating pattern. Preheat a gas/charcoal grill or ridged grill pan to a medium-high heat. Place kabobs on the grill and baste occasionally with the reserved marinade. Turn kabobs frequently and cook until chicken is done. Place on a platter to serve and garnish it with any of the leftover fruits.

Notes: These are so colorful and really make an attractive dish for a party. The fruits make the chicken so moist and tender. It can help to par-boil (pre-boil) the peppers and onions for 2-3 minutes prior to adding to skewers. This process helps to ensure they will finish cooking with the rest of the food plus helps prevent cracking when you thread the skewers.
