Dr. Zampieron specializes in non-toxic treatment of arthritis and other rheumatological and autoimmune disorders. Dr. Kamhi is known as an authority on natural healing. Both doctors appear on radio and television shows, teach, and lead workshops.
Although more than 100 types of arthritis are known, the doctors focus on the three most common kinds: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. They also discuss gout, psoriatic arthritis, and infectious arthritis. More than 20 million Americans suffer from one or more of these diseases.
Conventional medicine offers numerous drugs to relieve arthritis. Generally those drugs simply relieve pain, without providing permanent help. Many of the drugs cause unpleasant side effects as well. Zampieron and Kamhi say that "Alternative medicine, on the other hand, offers a wide range of treatment options for eliminating the often hidden causes of arthritis." They add that "the primary keys are proper diet and nutrition, detoxification, and stress reduction."
The two doctors explain how to accomplish each of these in detail, including case histories of patients they have helped. They provide information on their "arthritis diet," complete with sample recipes. They also describe all the testing procedures for finding the causes of arthritis, and how to remove those causes. Detoxification plays a big role, and they explain how to do that. Stress reduction is covered in the mind-body section. They also include information on supplements, exercises, and physical therapy.
"Quick Definitions" are scattered throughout the book, so that readers can learn the meaning of any unknown words. Complete information is also given on contacting labs, healers, and providers of recommended services/supplies in the text.
While the emphasis is on reversing or alleviating arthritis after it's developed, the solutions suggested by Zampieron and Kamhi are equally effective in preventing the onset of arthritis. Arthritis provides essential information for every American who wishes to live a life free from the suffering of this preventable and correctable disease.
