Featured Content from The Arthritis & Glucosamine Resource Center


    1. Glucosamine Side Effects
    Unlike COX-II inhibitors and NSAIDs, glucosamine is a very safe compound. There are, however, two reasons why you wouldn't want to take glucosamine.
    2. Living With Osteoarthritis
    Osteoarthritis is the primary example of degenerative arthritis. It affects approximately 70 million people in the United States. The condition affects both men and women and occurs primarily in individuals over 40 years of age.
    3. What is arthritis in cats?
    Arthritis in cats is the progressive deterioration of joint (articular) cartilage. One or more joints can be afflicted with the condition. Another term commonly used to describe this condition is degenerative joint disease. When the term osteoarthritis is used, it usually refers to an extension of the changes into the bone underlying the cartilage layer.

Computer users: The Arthritis Connection


By J. R. Rogers

Osteoarthritis: Does your job require computer work?

We recently talked a little about ‘good posture’ in a past issue of this chronicle and it is an important factor for osteoarthritis sufferers. After all, it plays a role in overall ‘body mechanics’ and how well you maintain your body structures.

But a friend of mine added a question to this discussion. He said that he worked at a computer all day long and wanted to know what he could do to help his arthritis. Let’s talk about that.

Lining up your body and avoiding pitfalls

In today’s society, there are many jobs out there that require that you work at a computer all day long. Or, you may only spend part of your work day at a computer. Either way, good habits can avoid big problems for arthritis sufferers. And, it can help you avoid arthritis problems that are avoidable.

Let’s look at some common sense rules:

  1. Sit up straight and plant your feet squarely on the floor.
  2. Get in close to your keyboard so that you avoid two things. First, the need to “lean forward.” Secondly, to avoid “stretching outward.” And, keep your head straight and directly above your shoulders.

 

3.   Generally, your monitor should be at “eye level” so you are not leaning down or
      “looking up.” (Neck strain)

These three simple steps go a long ways toward avoiding stress and strain on your neck, lower back, shoulders and even your lower arms. And, if you are doing this “all wrong” now, you will see the difference getting into the swing of things here.

Take breaks

You cannot just “punch away” at the computer all day long. It is important to take ‘breaks’ every 15-20 minutes. Stand up and stretch your body. Once in awhile, roll your head back slightly and just look up at the ceiling. Stretch your arms out and roll them slightly. And, take a few minutes to just “loosen” your wrists and roll them around as well.

If you do work at a computer for long periods of time (and) have arthritis, you should be using a premium-quality liquid Glucosamine like Syn-flex®. It keeps all of these joints you are using healthy. And of course, get a little exercise outside of the computer world you are living in. It is one job that can add “extra pounds” and that works against arthritis.

See you next time.

Healthy Foods in Fighting Arthritis


Good Eats Roast Turkey

Combine all brine ingredients, except ice water, in a stockpot, and bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve solids, then remove from heat, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

Early on the day of cooking, (or late the night before) combine the brine and ice water in a clean 5-gallon bucket. Place thawed turkey breast side down in brine, cover, and refrigerate or set in cool area (like a basement) for 6 hours. Turn turkey over once, half way through brining.

A few minutes before roasting, heat oven to 500 degrees. Combine the apple, onion, cinnamon stick, and cup of water in a microwave safe dish and microwave on high for 5 minutes.

Remove bird from brine and rinse inside and out with cold water. Discard brine.

Place bird on roasting rack inside wide, low pan and pat dry with paper towels. Add steeped aromatics to cavity along with rosemary and sage. Tuck back wings and coat whole bird liberally with canola (or other neutral) oil.

Roast on lowest level of the oven at 500 degrees F. for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cover breast with double layer of aluminum foil, insert probe thermometer into thickest part of the breast and return to oven, reducing temperature to 350 degrees F. Set thermometer alarm (if available) to 161 degrees. A 14 to 16 pound bird should require a total of 2 to 2 1/2 hours of roasting. Let turkey rest, loosely covered for 15 minutes before carving
