[Host] In the United States today, over one in five adults,or more than fifty million Americans,live with the pain and discomfort of arthritis. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Many people use physical activity to manage theirarthritis pain. If you personally don’t know the painand stiffness of arthritis,chances are you know someone who does. Arthritis pain prevents many people from livingthe life they want to live and from doing what they want. [Host] The barriers we know exist: pain, fear of painor joint damage, and not knowing what exercise is safe,discourage many who experience discomfort ordisability from taking advantage of our body’sown natural arthritis pain reliever – physical activity. [Teresa Brady] Millions of Americans report that arthritisinterferes with what they either want or need to do. [Woman] Going up and down stairs was very painful. Even just getting dressed and putting your shoes onwas a daily task that I could not do myself. [Teresa Brady] Many of those people know that theyshould be physically active, but arthritiskeeps getting in their way. [Chad Helmick] A long time ago, doctors would meetpeople with arthritis and tell them to rest their joints’because we didn’t have a lot of good treatments. That’s not true at all. Actually, resting your joints stiffens them up. [Teresa Brady] What we’re really talking about whenwe’re encouraging people with arthritis to be morephysically active is doing moderate physical activitylike walking, swimming, biking that get their heart rate upa little bit or get them breathing a little bit harder. [Host] Aim to do moderate physical activity five days aweek for thirty minutes a day. Exercising as little as 10 minutes at a time willallow you to achieve the recommended two-and-a-halfhours per week and get real health benefits. [Chad Helmick] You want to listen to your body so that,if you are too sore, a couple hours later youknow to cut back. . . maybe do a little bit less duration or frequency. [Teresa Brady] It’s not running a marathon. It’s not the ‘no pain, no gain’ idea. It really helps reduce some arthritis-specific symptoms,like pain, swelling, limitations. Things like fatigue and depression also improvewith physical activity. [Woman] Once I started exercising,it’s now– I do it every morning. I do weights and I do the stretching andI have to do that every day. [Teresa Brady] Some people prefer to exercise on their own,at their convenience, and that’s fine. Other people are a little worried about what kind ofexercise might be safe for them. So, in that case, they can look for a community-basedphysical activity program. [Chad Helmick] Most people will be seeing real benefitsin four to six weeks. They’ll be having less pain in their joints thanthey did earlier. [Teresa Brady] Some people feel defeated bytheir arthritis or that arthritis has taken awaythe life that they want. [Man] Am I a victim of it?Yeah. Did I ask for it?No. Did I do anything to cause it?No. But, you can’t let that mentality stop you frommoving forward. [Teresa Brady] And by regaining that sense of control,and a variety of self-management strategiescan help them take charge, they can get their life back. [Woman] Since I started exercising and changed my diet,I’m able to go any place that I want to go on my own. [Host] Find an arthritis exercise program tailoredfor you. You can take charge of your arthritis. . . and your life. [Man] You can ignore it – which obviously’s not very good. [Woman] Arthritis will always be a part of me,but it’s not going to control me or define who I am. [Man] Or you can let it control you. [Woman] Because sitting down and laying down andnot doing anything and feeling sorry for yourselfis the worst thing you could do. [Man] Or you can do everything you can to tryto control it. [Woman] I do whatever I want to do,go where I want to go and. . . I’m free!
Hi! I am Monica and the first thing I am going to show you is range of motion stuff and itactually works both your hip and your knee really well. What you need to do is find acomfy spot on the floor or the bed and go ahead and lie down on your back. You wantto make sure you have plenty of room for your feet to be moving and what you are going todo is keep this left leg bent and the right leg is what we are going to be focusing on. So you go ahead and start off with it straight and you are slowly going to be bending yourknee towards your body as far as you can and then you can also go ahead and continue withyour leg up right like that and then back down again. So it is a nice gentle slow rangeof motion you get in your knee full range of motion and also hip. So now you have yourhip bent and straightening your hip, you have your knee bent and you are going to straightenyour knee. Again, this is really nice and slow just to warm you up a little bit.
Ok thought I would create a short video about my arthritis pain relief story. A few months ago i had aches and pains in my shoulder and back my wife made me go tothe doctors they sent me for xrays, cut long story short i have arthritis . Tried for a few weeks ibuprofen cream this worked short term. then one of my friends suggested Boswellia tablets. so i went to the local shops and then searched the internet where i found the cheaper tablets atwww. supplementsreviewerstore. com . ordered them delivered on time. tried them out and within 2 weeks the pain got weaker and weaker and now four weeks laterthe pain has eased and nearly gone . all i can say is combining thes tablets and somedaily excersise i feel much better. MY ARTHRITISE PAIN RELIEF STORY has come to an end and hope than it has helped someone.
I want to welcome doctor Karen Hotchkissa pediatric ear nose and throat surgeonand mother extraordinaire. Also a good friend of ours. Is it ok if call you Karen?Absolutely! Karen how did you first hear about the Young Health Shake?I actually heard about the Young Shakethrough Doctor Young. We came as a patient family. My daughter who is now 9 was diagnosed witha very severe form of juvenile arthritis when she was 2. We went to the best the best and were at one of the localmajor university centers in an academic program being treated by a pediatricrheumatologist. Had spent six years basically on injectable medications all the thingsyou see theinfomercial commercials for the Embroil. What I didn’t realize as a mom is thatafter four to five years and you can burn out on those medications they stopworking. We were in a full-blown pain crisis. The Embroil had stopped working and had been a great ride for us for aboutfour yearsother than we were on shots twice a week and here having to put itas six or seven year old three shots was not a lot of fun but she was a trooperand we got through that. Her quality of life is pretty good but we didn’t realize thatat some point you can hit a wall and she hit that wall and her pain number andthis is a kid who’s had arthritis pretty much our whole lifewho would tell us that on a day when she felt a 9 out of 10 with still gettingout of bed and trumping through schoolthat her pain was 27 out of 10 and we were we’re at a loss. We were making trips every week to get eight-hour infusions ofa new medication called Remicade which is a different classused to treat arthritis and it wasn’t working and we were desperate. As a mom not only as a doctor but as a mom you’ll do anything for yourchildren. My husband came home one day and said I’ve heard about this guyname Doctor Young and he’s got a different approach to arthritis. I saidgreat I will do anything I will stand on my head in the cornerand wave my hands around if you tell me I’ll make my child better. I said just show me that there’s some science behind it, let’s go. So the nextdayluckily a friend of a friend was able to pull some strings and heard aboutour story and out desperate situation and was able to get us into the clinic. Doctor Young introduced us to the shake. As I sat there and listened toDoctor Youngtelling us about the shake and the biology behind it and the science behind iteverything from my first and second year of medical school came back toplay and saidthis really make sense. This is everything that we learnedearly on of what the body needs to function properlyat the cellular level. Then as we started to look atJoy’s diet realized everything we were putting into her body was not what she neededto be havingfor arthritis. So that day we learned about the shakeand we got started, cold turkey we went to the shake. We had nothingelse. There was not an option to try and convince a nine-year-old take a shake. Itwas happening, period. We also made some diet changes right then too. Takinga lot of the carbs out. That was really hard to get all carbohydrates, potato chipsDr. Young sat down with us and asked us what her diet consisted ofit wasmac and cheese for breakfast pizza for lunch and pasta for dinner. You knowas parents and a child who is chronically hurting we we were desperateanything she wanted to you we were happy to because at that point any nutrition atall was a struggle. Within two to three weeks starting her on the shakes we saw a hugeimprovement. Her pain improved her joints swelling resolved andbefore long we knew we had our are happy healthychild back. We were amazed that off medicationsthat she was doing so well simply by changing her dietand incorporating shake daily. Was it hard to get her to take the shake? I meanit’s protein an oilit doesn’t sound appetizing. The other thing that from a mother’s stand point that is great aboutthe shake is that they are very low sugarand I think our children in today’s society are very used to that very sweetsweet taste. At first it was a little difficult. The thing I loved about Dr. Young ishe said to usget the good stuff inthe number one priority is to get the good stuff in and we’ll worry about the badstufflater but but we really focus on getting the stuff in. So that meant we couldexpand our possibilities with the shake so if we want but bananas in it are we needed twoputchocolate syrup cocoa powder or anything else tomake the shake kid-friendly and palatable. The next two to three weeks westarted experimentingin the kitchen and were able to come up with some great recipes. Now it to not only provides variety but a nicemeal for her. We make it custom for her whether it’s chocolate orvanilla or fruit flavoredShe does a great job. Has she gone back? I know the University was involved care a lot ofdoctors. What have they said? Their thoughts?I guess I’m a little hesitant to say what their thoughts are becausewe actually haven’t gone back. I have seen some other specialists, that arecolleagues and told them what we’re doing and they have said,well you know sooner or later it will be back orthis may just be a temporary phase. Not really appreciatingwhat a valuable point nutrition can play. I will tell you when we wereat our last visit getting our last infusionmy husband did ask if diet played a role in arthritisand one other providers toll is absolutely not, don’t evenexplore diet therapy because there’s there’s no roll for that in this diseaseprocess. I think at this point now we are six months healthyand six months off all medications can say absolutely this has been the best sixmonths of our life.
Hi! I am Monica and I am going to show you a stretch you can actually do for your hipand your knee if you are having arthritis problems either on the floor or lying on yourstomach on the bed. I will show you on the floor here, so go ahead and lie on your stomach. I will show you on the left leg and what you are going to do is just grab your heel andslowly pull it towards your butt. So you should feel a nice stretch all over the front ofyour leg right here. You should be holding from anywhere from 30-60 seconds. If thisis kind of awkward for you, what you can do is grab a belt and put it around your footand then just pull on the belt so it is not quite as awkward as reaching far back. Youcan also see variations of this exercise or stretch standing. You can see people standingand pulling the heels to your butt, which is fine too and whatever is more comfortablefor you. So again a nice stretch for your quads.
Hi! I am Monica. Another stretch I am going to show you that can help with arthritis isgoing to be for your low back and your butt muscles. So what you need to do is find agood spot on the floor or else the bed and go ahead and lie on your back. What you wantto do is just nice and relaxed you want to pull starting with the right leg just pullingyour knee to your chest as far as you comfortably can. You can either have your hand over yourknee or if that’s kind of uncomfortable, right under. If you have arthritis in your knees,kind of crank in your knee joint, with your hands on top, you might not feel good so youare just going to put right underneath just slowly pulling as far as you can. You shouldfeel a nice stretch in your butt, your lower back and do the same thing with the otherleg, holding it at about 30-60 seconds and you can also do it with both legs at the sametime. So again you might want to be a little careful. You might want to lift one leg orthe other just making sure you do not have any problems. If you have low back problems,this might be a little bit hard for you to handle. Again, holding about 30-60 seconds.

Hi! My name is Monica and the next exercise that I am going to show you for arthritisare actually going to be for the muscles to strengthen around your hip and your knee area. These next few you can actually do with ankle weights if you want to. You can buy thesefrom Target or Wal-Mart or sporting good stores if you want a little bit more resistance. These are great ways to do exercises that are non-weightbearing, meaning that you aren’tgoing to have to be standing and putting weight on the joints that are painful while you aredoing these. First one I will have you guys do is, I am just turning to the side so thatyou can see better, go ahead and lie back down either on your elbows or all the wayback whatever is comfortable for you and you are just going to be lifting your leg offthe ground right like this, so nice and slow. You can see my heels only coming about a footoff the ground; you don’t have to go up all the way. When I first start out you cansee my quad is getting nice and tight so these muscles right in the front are nice and tightand then I lift up. You can hold 3-5 seconds if you want to or just come up and down.
