Author Richard Diana claims to be the only orthopaedic
surgeon to have played in the Superbowl. He saw his
mother's life wasted by rheumatoid arthritis and has worked
hard to learn how to spare others the same pain and
HEALTHY JOINTS FOR LIFE is the aim. We may overwork our
joints at a young age and don't realise how early they can
wear out. Inflammation can also damage joints all by
itself. This book is aimed at everyone who has joint pain
and wants to avoid surgery. The diet, supplements and other
recommendations are all a positive guard against heart
disease and cancer as well.
Diana begins his talk on inflammation by digressing to an
incident during his sports career. As someone who doesn't
know American football it meant little to me, but it might
persuade some people that this is no ordinary diet doctor
and he has experience of using the body hard. More and
more, inflammation is being identified as the core or start
of diseases. An explanation of cell makeup and structure
concludes that banning trans-fats (an artificially
hardened, hydrogenated fat in some foods) is the single
best step to take.
Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats are a required part of a healthy
diet for heart and joints. Antioxidants, such as those
found in blueberries, help to remove poisons from the
system. Diagrams of the joints show bone rubbing bone,
which is smoothed over by cartilage and synovial fluid or
joint oil. A cascading effect from wear and tear coupled
with diet problems, too much insulin or smoking can cause
pain and ongoing inflammation which then worsens the
arthritis. If all the softer tissues are damaged or lost,
the bones wear each other down in a painful motion.
While the biology lessons may seem complex, these are
interspersed with reminders that pro football players all
suffer joint damage. Then we get a straightforward list of
positive steps to take, including eating fish, ideally
salmon, fibrous foods and lean meats, adding complex
carbohydrates and avoiding sugars and high fructose corn
syrup. Exercise is the next step, both reducing weight
and increasing mobility. Motivation is the key factor.
One of Richard Diana's patients followed his plan, lost
thirty pounds and told him "I haven't felt this good in
twenty years." What have you got to lose? Only your pain.
Give HEALTHY JOINTS FOR LIFE a try, even if you read it in
instalments and follow the suggestions gradually when you
come to understand your body's processes better. You'll
almost certainly be glad you did.
No surgery. No medication. No drastic measures. Just healthy
