More than 10 million people in the UK have arthritis and rheumatism, and the number seems to be increasing year by year. About 20 per cent of all doctor visits are for these and related musculoskeletal conditions, making this the largest group of patients attending surgeries. Although these disorders are not in themselves a major cause of death, they are the largest cause of pain and disability. Over three million adults are physically disabled because of such problems. Arthritis and rheumatism are blanket terms that cover many different conditions. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis; currently affecting more than eight million people in the UK. In addition, there are about a million people with rheumatoid arthritis. Fibromyalgia is even more common than rheumatoid arthritis. People of all ages can be affected - e.g some 15,000 children are affected by juvenile arthritis. While there is much the doctor can do, this book looks at how to help yourself. One of the main themes of this book is what the author calls the Life Cycle, which demonstrates how aspects of a person's life interact to influence their condition including body, emotions, mind and lifestyle.

The global popularity of herbal supplements and the promise they hold in treating various disease states has caused an unprecedented interest in understanding the molecular basis of the biological activity of traditional remedies. Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects focuses on presenting current scientific evidence of biomolecular effects of selected herbs and their relation to clinical outcome and promotion of human health. It includes experimental approaches for looking at the bioactive components in herbs. This book also addresses the ethical challenges of using herbal medicine and its integration into modern, evidence-based medicine. Drawing from the work of leading international researchers in different fields, this volume contains an in-depth scientific examination of effects of individual herbs, as well as their use in the treatment of important diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, dermatologic disorders, neurodegenerative disease, and diabetes. Due to the strong associations between oxidative stress, ageing, and disease, the powerful antioxidant properties of herbs and spices are also examined. The herbs featured are some of the most widely used remedies and cover a wide range, including flowering herbs, fruits and berries, roots and rhizomes, and fungi. The fact that composition of natural products can vary greatly and contamination and misidentification can occur are important issues in the use of herbal medicines. To help bring a new level of quality control to the production of herbal extracts, the use of mass spectrometry and chemometric fingerprinting technology is presented as a means for improved identification and authentication of herbs. As the need for effective, affordable health promotion and treatment increases, especially in the growing ageing population, there is a need for rigorous scientific examination of herbal medicines. This timely and comprehensive volume addresses this need and is an important text for medical professionals and researchers, as well as those interested in herbal or complementary medicine.
