What drove you to write this particular book?
My personal suffering from arthritis. All that a physician can do for you is to provide relief from pain. But there are a number of new methods to treat the causes of these pains which include self-regulation, nutrition, physical exercises, breathing, naturopathy and others. Do you know that out of sixty million people of Great Britain 8 million people are suffering from arthritis but only one out of five ever visits the physician? Similarly, more than 50 million Americans suffer from various forms of arthritis and it is listed as number one cause of disability in the US. Certain types of pain are associated with a particular age and women suffer more from them than men. The joints which are most affected by inflammation and pain are wrists, knees, thighs, ankles and the vertebral column.
The patient feels pain in his joints because of their inflammation and inflammation is due to different and complex causes. Some may think that advanced age is the sole reason of these afflictions with their different names. Others may attribute them to a decrease in secretion of certain chemical substances by the body. Disturbance of a person’s immune system in certain circumstances may cause such afflictions. Similarly, heredity may be a cause and though scientific findings have not confirmed heredity as a causative factor this much is certain that a baby born of a mother afflicted with this disease will show the symptoms of this disease during his childhood in the form of pains or other suffering in different organs of his body.
The future is full of hope that the patient can recover and lead a normal life. The twentieth century witnessed a considerable advance in the treatment of joint pains. So no patient should despair of a cure and think that he will pass the rest of his life sitting or in a wheel-chair.
