Slow Medicine for Arthritis

Arthritis, or degenerative joint disease, is an inflammatory condition that causes intense pain, resulting in limited mobility and a chain reaction of problems – including isolation, sadness, and frustration. Since arthritis is an inflammatory condition, the antidote to arthritis is the anti-inflammatory lifestyle.

    I am interested in slow medicine for arthritis..personally and professionally..I am a Nurse Educator at a hospital where we try to integrate traditional medicine with integrative medical modalities..I also have arthritis in my knee and am trying to look for new ways to improve my own health…I have used yoga and modify my diet by decreasing intake of inflammatory foods.. Your health care philosophy is very interesting …

    Hello Dr Finkelstein
    I just ‘stumbled upon your website, and totally loved your integrative approach to discussing disease.

    I was a naturopath in my home country and health educator, then almost went into med school, but decided for PT, came to the US for my Masters and Doctorate, did research and am now teaching pathology and Clinical physiology. In my procession, I have seen how limiting is our notions of the causes of disease, and sometimes the discussions take a strange turn…always back into the biomedical model of disease, which explains some things, but leave a lot unexplained.

    I have practically dedicated my life to study alternative and adjunct methods of treating people and disease (I think it is good to keep both in mind when you talk about that!). I am looking forward to receiving your news letter and just wanted to send my vibes of excitement for the light that you bring into this discussion to patients and others who will learn from your more in depth views of healing.

    Thank you,
    Wil Remigio
