I am two weeks into the suggested plan and have experienced a reduction in pain in hands and back and one slightly enlarged knuckle joint has gone down. The book is very easy to understand, giving practical knowledge and suggestions. I have already recommended it to a friend with arthritis.

Extremely helpful book. It was a lot more scientific than I had expected, which in my opinion gives it more credibility. I've recommended it to a couple of people who suffer as I do. There a a number of gems which I have found easy to incorporate into a busy life and I am already getting the benefits. Much better than relentless NSAIDS and hospital appointments.

This book gets off to a really good, positive start. As with most Holford books, it emphasises the importance of a good, balanced diet as a way of preventing a number of modern diseases. It also talks about the science of arthritis, in a very clear, concise way. I'd been looking for a good summary like this for a while.

The book loses 2 stars for two quite important points. Firstly, throughout the book, Holford seems to be subtly pushing the product brands in which he has a commercial interest. When talking about the low GI value of oatcakes for instance, he mentions a brand in which he certainly used to have a very overt interest, and presumably still does.

The second star is lost because the supplement recommendations don't quite cover the latest research, and omit one or two safe supplements which are well studied and known to be very helpful. He mentions SAM-e briefly for instance, but says this is only useful as a painkiller. Current research indicates that it may or may not also be helpful in preventing cartilage degeneration.

This is a useful book, but these are two quite significant flaws.

In the last few months my view on health and disease has completly changed. Patrick Holford shows how all health problems are entirely due to lifestyle and nutrition and that in fact most diseases, even arthritis are completly avoidable. The book is very imformative, has everything you could possibly want from the title. It mostly concerns people already suffering from arthritis. Although it also has a wealth of preventitive measures. I have first hand experience of the ideas in the book having tried his ideas and can say its all true.

I like the fact that this book offers a holistic approach to managing arthritis.
It offers dietary guidelines, including advice on detecting food intolerances and information on the vitamins, minerals, herbs and spices that may help arthritis. It also looks at how stress can be involved in arthritis flare-ups and suggests helpful exercises. Overall, I think this is a useful guide, though it does contain some controversial dietary advice, such as cutting out foods from the deadly nightshade family e.g. tomatoes, potatoes, aubergines and red, green and yellow peppers; there is no solid scientific evidence that these foods cause arthritis.

This is an outstanding book. It is highly readable, almost rivetting, while containing much useful information.
I have already followed up some of the author's advice, and found it successful. Well worth purchasing, and my thanks to Patrick Holford for sharing his wisdom in such an accessible way!

I found this book to be excellent for its explanation on the causes of arthritis and what we can do to avoid it. I along with many others no doubt thought that arthritis would be an inevitable consequence of growing older - this book gives hope to those who do not wish to suffer from this disease along with many helpful remedies for helping those who already have a problem. Patrick Holford's book is very easy to read and understand.

I have never used alternative foods/remedies so I downloaded "Say No to Arthritis" on the strength of the good reviews. Having a reasonable scientific medical background knowledge I was impressed with his rationale and explanations of the various foods and how/why they are effective at combating arthritis. As with any medical book worth its salt, its packed with double-blind case studies, stacking up the evidence.
Now I understand too, why alternative foods are not marketed for their uses in the same way as medicines are, and thats such a pity. We all loose out, that is, unless you are fortunate enough to come across a book such as this one!
I re-read the book noting down his formulae for arthritis recovery (I have OestoArthritis which started 6 months ago and am in my 30's). Perhaps because my arthritis is a fairly recent occurence, I had improvement in my hands/knees within one week and within 2 weeks was pain free on a combination of just natural anti-inflammatories, ginger and tumeric. However, if I forgot to take my supplements I felt twinges. Now, 3 months on, even if I forget I am pain free, although I shall continue to take the high doses for a further 3 months, as Holford suggests, before cutting back. I am ecstatic with the results, and cannot tell enough people about it.
Easy to read, easy to understand, packed with gems of information. I have bought another copy for my brother. Highly, highly recommend.
