There are many benefits to losing weight and one is reducing stress on your body and bones. I read somewhere that for every added pound, your body puts 4 pounds of pressure on your joints, especially the knees.
Michelle Schoffro Cook gives detailed information on anti-inflammatory foods and supplements that might relieve joint pain. With a holistic approach she talks of enzymes, natural medicine and aromatherapy.
I highly recommend the book for those who want to take a more natural approach and a healthier view on attacking body aches and pains rather than taking drugs which their own commercials end with "and can cause death!"
Hop on over to her site for more info. on healthy choices
Note: I found her book Arthritis Proof Your Life at our local library.
