So many people have been given a diagnosis of arthritis, which literally means inflammation of the joints. It can be accompanied by pain, swelling, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Folks think that they have to accept this as part of the aging process.
But what if this wasn't the case? Acupuncture and dietary changes reduce pain and inflammation, working in conjunction with the body's healing abilities.
Learn how you can live healthier, happier and pain-free. Bonnie and Heather will share their secrets of getting rid of chronic pain with you!
