Featured Content from The Arthritis & Glucosamine Resource Center

    1. Reducing Weight & Saving Your Load Bearing Joints
    Excessive weight can play a major role in the increase of osteoarthritis-related issues. It not only increases the amount of damage, it also has long-term consequences that can be severe. Let us consider this example.
    2. Hip Dysplasia: Is Your Pet Suffering?
    Canine hip dysplasia (CHD) is a genetic, painful, crippling disease that causes a dog's hip to weaken, deteriorate, and become arthritic. It is a congenital condition and is the leading cause of lameness occurring in the rear legs of dogs. CHD is common in dogs, particularly in certain large and giant breeds, although smaller dogs and cats can suffer from the condition as well.

Breaking news on the prescription drug front

By J. R. Rogers

Here we go again. That is about all I can say about the latest attempt by Merck & Co. to put another prescription drug on the market to replace Vioxx.

Of course, you all remember Vioxx. This is the drug that was withdrawn from the market after reports surfaced that it doubled the risk of heart attacks and strokes. But, not to be deterred the company was seeking to replace Vioxx with Arcoxia®.

Advisors to the Food & Drug Administration voted 20 to 1 to deny approval for this new “medication.” At least we had someone who was paying attention.

The same old story with a different twist

If you have been a regular reader of this column over the years, I have often said that the dangers associated with using Cox-2 inhibitors (and, there are many) are far outweighed by any benefit. The safer and sounder route in my opinion has been the use of high-quality liquid Glucosamine and a more sensible lifestyle.

As long as there are big profits to be made, the drug companies will keep trying to create new drugs. And we have learned that often they ignore clear signals that there could be health risks associated with them.

I have said it before and will say it again. Most arthritis sufferers get the relief they need by using a product like Syn-flex® and they do not have any risks in doing so. If you are really trying to defeat OA, all it takes a a commitment to use the product, get some exercise and eat sensibly.

See you next time.

Healthy Foods in Fighting Arthritis

Campfire Salmon

  • 4 cups of bean sprouts
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup of soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil
  • 2 limes, juiced and zested
  • 1/4 cup of honey
  • 3 tablespoons of ground coriander
  • 1 two pound piece of salmon, skin removed

Build a fire and allow it to burn down to the coals. Alternately, preheat your grill or oven to 400 degrees.

Toss the bean sprouts, onions, soya sauce, sesame oil, lime, honey and coriander together.

Place two large pieces of aluminum foil onto counter, one on top of the other. Fold over one edge half an inch, and then repeat twice. Open up the two pieces of foil into one larger piece with a seam through the center. Place one half of the sprout mixture onto the centre of the foil.  Lay salmon on top and then cover with the other half. Fold the foil along the top and sides of the salmon to create a package that is well sealed. The salad will insulate the salmon from the direct heat of the hot coals.

Place the salmon package on a rack over the hot coals and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the package puffs noticeably from internal steam. Carefully remove from the fire and place on a serving platter. Carefully open the foil and serve immediately.

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.
