Osteoarthritis

Part of the “Be Your Health Expert” series, this presentation will help you understand osteoarthritis and what you can do to prevent it or how to minimize its effects. There is a lot that we can do to slow down the progression of joint degeneration. This one-hour audio presentation includes notes that show x-rays and illustrations of OA.

This package includes:

  • One-hour Audio

You will learn:

  • Why osteoarthritis occurs in some joints and not others
  • Different types of arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and other conditions that result in joint pain.
  • Inflammation and how we can tone down the flames
  • How digestion impacts joint health
