The Alternative approaches For Arthritis diseases
 

My Honest opinion.....Controversial ?  But here goes.......

An answer to all the alternative approaches and claimed cures.. from drdoc....

If you read my posts and website you will see I don't suggest a blanket trust of conventional doctors either. I am on the peer review and ethics committee in my country. - and I agree that there are plenty unethical doctors in medicine (fortunately still the minority)........


But that doesn't mean that I cant warn patients from spending all their money on the countless unproven remedies that have not been shown to be effective in the management of arthritic disease and which are increasingly popping up on the newsgroups.
I never get cross with my patients if they want to use these therapies. That's their choice- I just try to stay objective......

 

Lets look at all the cures that are claimed - as we the doctors are accused of trying to keep the cures secret and inflate our bank balances by refusing to accept the cure claimed to be available....

 

In fact - LETS LOOK AT CLAIMED CURES FOR ARTHRITIS ALONE...............

There are diets a plenty, copper bangles , magnets , electrical devices , micronutrients, MSM, choral calcium, anti-oxidants, macronutrients , powders , collagens , shark fin and other products, herbs ,spices, weeds , corals , homeopathy , anthroposophical therapies , chiropractic, naturopathy, osteopathy, acupuncture, acupressure, shiatzu, reflexology , faith, spiritualism, energy, magnetism, psychic, metaphysical, magic aromatherapy, Bach flower remedies, color therapy, crystals and pyramids, ion generators, magnetic field therapy, radionic and psionic medicine, and sound therapy. aloe vera , alfalfa ,celery, comfrey, dandelion , devil’s claw, evening primrose oil, feverfew, garlic, ginger, horseradish/ kelp, parsley, Paraguay tea, yucca ,actea spicata , ammonium carbonicum, antimonium tartaricum , arnica montana , arsenicumalbum, bryonia alba , calcarea, caulophyllum, causticum, colchicum, gelsemium, nux vomica, pulsatilla, rhus toxicodendron, ruta graveolens, sulfur, hot pepper (capsaicin), clove oil (eugenol), selenium, vitamin E, zinc, vitamin C, copper, flavonoids, phenylalanine

SO DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR - WHY SHOULD I BELIEVE THESE HAVE THE CURE AND NOT ALL THE OTHERS.
The honest answer is that there is NO PROOF OF DEFINITE SUBSTANTIAL benefit from these approaches in any WELL CONDUCTED and REPRODUCIBLE studies or trials.

THERE'S NOT ENOUGH MONEY IN THE USA BUDGET TO COVER THEM ALL...... So watch your wallets....

 

 The only natural therapies i endorse at this time are GLUCOSAMINE SULPHATE, Omega 3 marine oil, calcium carbonate, acupuncture from a reputable source or practitioner.

Please note these do NOT replace disease modifying therapies that we use in arthritis, but may be a useful adjunct or addition to established therapies that are so successfully used these days.

Always see a Rheumatologist who can diagnose your subtype of arthritis and treat you appropriately.
