The Truth About NSAIDS
By J.R. Rogers
What are NSAIDS?
How They Function
When NSAIDs are used to control pain, they have a negative effect on these favorable aspects of the prostaglandins. So where does that leave you? While they may reduce the pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis, in turn they can cause some very troublesome side effects that include but are not limited to: cramping; nausea; indigestion and diarrhea; constipation; headaches; tension or nervous behavior, and more.
What should be of even greater concern is the fact even more serious side effects can develop and often, very quickly: ulcers; fever; sore throats; breathing difficulties; irregular heartbeat; high blood pressure and more. Unfortunately, in our haste to rid ourselves of the pain from osteoarthritis, we are all to quick to fail to recognize that the use of these (common) medications can have extremely severe consequences.
The Most Serious Healing Issue
"The Arthritis Cure for Pets"
By Brian Beale, Brenda Adderly
In this book you will learn how to give your arthritic pet a new lease on life--with a low-cost, readily available, over-the-counter treatment without side effects.
Our companion animals are suffering the same joint pain that we do and usually for the same reason--aging. Beale, a veterinarian with more than 10 years of studying osteoarthritis in animals, and Adderly, a health reporter and coauthor of The Arthritis Cure, shows how a combination of nutritional supplements can halt, reverse, or even cure the pain of arthritis in pets.
Beginning with two chapters that define and explain exactly what arthritis is and how it affects dogs and cats, the authors move on to discuss painkillers and the fact that they will not cure arthritis.
The meat of the book is in the next three chapters describing the cure--glucosamine and chondroitin--and supportive measures, such as painkillers, a healthy diet, and mineral supplements. The remaining chapters discuss other types of arthritis treatments, the value of exercise, and the aging pet in general. This sensibly written book will help pet owners to provide over-the-counter care for their arthritic animals, and, in conjunction with veterinary care, should enhance the lives of aging pets.

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.
Once you begin your course above, you will receive one article each day delivered right to your email inbox. The daily topics are:
