    i am a 51 years young female recently dignosed with osteoarthritis, in fact the consultant i saw on examining my joints just told me i am 'falling apart' and there was nothing he could do! i am blood group AB and from recommendation from my step son have printed your diet for this group. Are there any other guidlines i could follow given this latest devastating news?

    Hello Lynne,

    Osteoarthritis is an inflammatory condition of the bones and joints. There IS something you can do. In fact there are several things you can do.

    First, diet alone is not enough. Our patients with bone, joint, and inflammatory conditions almost always have difficulties digesting, absorbing, and assimilating their foods, especially proteins. The best thing to do is call 800-614-4400 and ask for the name and number of the nearest Associate Enzyme Therapist to you. This person can evaluate you and your condition and determine the best diet for you and what you need to improve your digestion.

    Secondly, consider having your hormone levels tested with a saliva test kit from ZRT labs in Beaverton, OR. Again, most of our female patients with bone, joint, and inflammatory conditions have relatively more estrogen than progesterone. If this does turn out to be your situation, let me know and we can talk about the safest and most effective ways to accomplish balancing your hormone levels.

    Best of Health,

    Doc Kelley
