Here is an amazing three-step guide to eliminate the disease naturally. Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the world—greater than both back pain and heart disease. One example, rheumatoid arthritis, is the most common autoimmune disease, affecting 1% of the U.S. population, and almost 68 million people worldwide. Conventional medicine tends to treat arthritis with strong, gut-damaging, immunesuppressing pain medications, temporarily relieving the symptoms of the disease without addressing its root causes. Now, in her groundbreaking new book, Dr. Susan Blum offers a better approach to healing arthritis permanently. Dr. Blum’s three-step protocol is designed to address the underlying causes of the condition and heal the body permanently by treating rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, healing your gut to heal your joints and reducing inflammation without medication. This innovative method includes a two-week plan to quickly reduce pain through anti-inflammatory foods and supplements, followed by an intensive gut repair to rid the body of bad bacteria and strengthen the gastrointestinal system for a dramatic improvement in arthritis symptoms and inflammation. Then she addresses the emotional issues that contribute to inflammation, and how eating a simple, Mediterranean-inspired diet can maintain a healthy gut. Featuring detailed case studies, including Dr. Blum’s own inspiring personal story, Healing Arthritis offers a revolutionary way to heal your gut, repair your immune system, control inflammation, and live a happier, healthier arthritis-free life.
