"Glucosamine and Chondroitin sulfates are the most potent medicine, prescription or other, known to combat the underlying cause of joint degeneration, most often exemplified by osteoarthritis, the crippler that strikes nearly 90 percent of us if we live long enough."
"Research in Portugal, Germany, and Italy has found that, for relieving symptoms, glucosamine is equal to or better that typical drugs prescribed in the United States (known as Advil, Motrin, or Nuprin)." X-ray studies have shown normalization of the joint spaces on the X-rays of some of patients who have been on the medication for a year. "This is irrefutable evidence that new cartilage has appeared, in a sense healing the damage and reversing the disease."
Biochemist Luke Bucci, Ph.D. in his nutrition book states that these supplements should help treat "any conditions that involve repair of cartilage and joints ... including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis ..., chondromalacia [a softening of the kneecap], tendonitis, bursitis, postsurgical repair of traumatic injury to joints...
Glucosamine and chondroitin "should be the 'remedy of choice' for osteoarthritis, the first thing to try." (quotes from the book Miracle Cures by Jean Carper)
THE ARTHRITIS CURE
If you have not read The Arthritis Cure by Orthopedic Surgeon Jason Theodosakis, I strongly suggest you do. "An arthritis cure HAS been discovered," he says, "and it is as simple as taking two over-the-counter nutritional supplements!" These supplements not only provide relief from the pain and inflammation of osteoarthritis, but they actually help rebuild cartilage! Dr. Theodosakis states on the back cover: "As a competitive athlete, I have injured and re-injured my joints over the years. To repair the damage, I underwent several surgeries, many of them unsuccessful. It was an ironic situation - here I was, a physician dedicated to healing, with two bum knees and a bad elbow.
After a year of taking high doses of anti-inflammatory pills, I decided that I had to find another solution. In my search to learn everything about osteoarthritis, I came upon mention after mention of two promising nutritional supplements. Within two weeks of trying these supplements, I felt significantly better. Later clinical examination showed that my damaged cartilage was actually repairing itself.
After further research, I incorporated these supplements into my own practice. The results have been impressive. I've helped hundreds of people either eliminate the need for surgery or greatly reduce the effects of osteoarthritis. Doctors and other professionals are beginning to discover that there's no reason to suffer anymore."
On pages 55-56 of The Arthritis Cure, the following recommendations are made:
For best results, divide your daily dose into several parts and take them throughout the day with meals.
Jane Brody, renowned health correspondent at the New York Times tried the combo for her aching knees. "After about two months on this remedy, I am about 30% better...I have stopped limping, I am playing tennis and ice skating with less pain and my knees have stopped swelling after strenuous activity."
ADDITIONAL HELPFUL SUPPLEMENTS:
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic and bioavailable source of sulfur found in many food items. The sulfur is used by the body to manufacture antioxidants (glutathione and cysteine) and connective tissue. Sulfur plays an especially critical role in maintaining the elasticity and flexibility of the connective tissue that make up joints.
Hyaluronic acid is a component of connective tissue whose function is to cushion and lubricate the joints. The fluid which bathes the joints called Synovial fluid is made up of molecules of Hyaluronic Acid that enable cartilage to glide easily over other parts of the joint.
