Leading holistic physician Dr Zoltan Rona provides much-needed advice to help the many people--especially women--who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, the most destructive form of arthritis. Unlike the more common osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis can be debilitating to victims of all ages, including children. Though the exact cause of this ailment is still unknown, it is recognized as an autoimmune disease, where symptoms of varying degrees can precipitate inflammatory attacks. Under certain conditions, this disorder can be reversed.

Dr Rona's book provides sufferers with a new understanding of rheumatoid arthritis, together with new approaches for treatment garnered from his 20 years of clinical experience in this field. His natural approach counters the treatment route taken by conventional medical authorities, one that has resulted in merely masking symptoms with drugs that may actually accelerate the disease. Increased self-awareness and education can open new avenues of wellness for those whose faulty immune systems cause symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

In this Natural Health Guide Rona carefully outlines several natural treatment protocols, in order of importance. While emphasizing active participation from a sympathetic natural practitioner, Rona also recognizes that many of his recommendations can be safely undertaken by conscientious readers. Effective dietary modifications and supplement use are carefully and thoroughly described in a highly usable format. In fact, Rheumatoid Arthritis offers a very wide range of proven treatments from which to select, even including psychological and spiritual therapies.

In addition, the book's healthy recipe section helps readers to easily implement Dr Rona's recommended nutritional transitions. This is a visually rich and inviting chapter, thanks to the creative food styling and recipe development of alive's whole food chef Fred Edrissi. Rona's alternatives to the foods that can aggravate symptoms include vegetables high in antioxidants, foods high in natural oils and those plant enzymes that help alleviate inflammation. Readers are sure to find these new combinations of healthful ingredients both inspiring and motivating, resulting in easier management of systemic problems that usually result in symptoms.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a thorough, well-rounded treatment of its subject and offers concrete, easy-to-follow natural
solutions and renewed hope for those who are suffering.
