I have osteoarthritis (OA) and the inflammation with pain went into remission following the Maximum Weight Loss diet strictly. I don't remember how long it took but I probably felt some relief in a few days and I think it was probably 2-3 months later I realized I didn't have any pain at all for awhile. I have since participated in many activities that normally would have aggravated my OA without any repercussions/pain/inflammation.jannifera wrote:How do you manage arthritis pain? My husband has arthritis in his hip and it flairs up really bad at times - any home remedies that would alleviate the pain?
Dr. McDougall has written quite a bit on OA - if you use the search function you'll find excellent advice. Here is one from his hot topics section on the home page: http://www.drmcdougall.com/med_hot_arthritis.html You will also find some videos of Star McDougaller's who over came their OA at the bottom.
I hope your husband finds himself pain free quickly on this diet as well.
