CONDITION OF THE WEEK: ARTHRITIS Eagles rocker Glenn Frey suffered from debilitating rheumatoid arthritis for years — and died partly because of the pills he took for it, his manager said Tuesday. In today’s environment with toxicity, rise of junk food and the general breakdown of healthy lifestyle arthritis is becoming a bigger problem. It’s sad to read about someone who’s treatment for condition caused their early death. But the facts are over 2000 people a week die from their prescription drugs. Arthritis, best prevented, can be treated with natural healthcare. First of all you need to be on an anti-inflammatory diet, because our chronic diseases from heart disease to arthritis develop in a inflammatory chemistry.
