VANCOUVER ISLAND, BC – [October 1, 2011] –Arthritis sufferers now have a new weapon in their arthritis-fighting arsenal.  International best-selling and eleven-time health book author and clinical nutritionist Dr. Michelle Schoffro Cook, PhD, announces the launch of her newest book:  Arthritis-Proof: The Drug-Free Way to Beat Pain and Inflammation.

Arthritis-Proof: The Drug-Free Way to Beat Pain and Inflammation is jammed-packed with practical advice to help arthritis sufferers take charge of their health and overcome pain and inflammation through nutritional management.  Unlike other books that are full of theory, Arthritis-Proof discusses the importance of choosing an anti-inflammatory diet and provides practical advice to empower the reader.  Dr. Schoffro Cook’s book is evidence-based and offers plenty of natural remedy and therapy options without the harmful side-effects of common arthritis drugs.   Whether readers are coping with the debilitating effects of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, fibromyalgia, or another form of arthritis, Arthritis-Proof provides the tools they need to enjoy a reduction in pain.

“It is essential for people to consider the role that food plays in either aggravating or improving the pain and inflammation of arthritis.  Most people incorrectly assume that gentle and natural options like food, herbs, phytonutrients, enzymes and lifestyle choices are less effective than pharmaceutical drugs.  By implementing these natural strategies arthritis sufferers will typically notice profound improvements in the way they feel,” says Dr. Schoffro Cook.

She discusses:

  • The serious problems linked to common arthritis drugs;
  • How healing with foods is a safe approach that should be considered whether patients are using a pharmaceutical or natural approach;
  • How cutting-edge research is demonstrating the anti-inflammatory capacity of natural enzymes against the pain and inflammation of arthritis;
  • The top anti-inflammatory foods to include in any arthritis program;
  • Super pain-relieving spices;
  • Simple self-acupressure for pain management;
  • The top herbs that are scientifically proven to reduce pain and joint swelling; and
  • Much more.


“I chose to publish Arthritis-Proof as an e-book to reach the widest audience possible and to provide arthritis-sufferers with immediate access to powerful pain management options.  Trends show that consumers are turning to e-books over traditional print options for their convenience, immediacy, and reduced environmental impact.”
