You are not alone…
Arthritis, or degenerative joint disease, is the most common disability in America. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 19 million adults in the U.S. have arthritis. Arthritis causes pain and loss of motion that limits daily activities.
Conventional medicine has its place…
Conventional medicines can reduce pain and inflammation, but they don’t address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable. Vioxx was a powerful example of this, causing cadiovascular disease in its users. Other examples are less extreme, but present nonetheless.
You do have options…
Many people don’t realize there are options in addition to conventional medicine that will actually make them better. By addressing the underlying causes of arthritis, patients experience reductions in symptoms, improvements in overall health, and reduced dependence on medications.
There is hope…

What do you do for patients with arthritis?
Arthritis is caused by degeneration of the tissue that cushions and protects the joints. At Asheville Natural health & Homeopathy, we reduce or reverse this degenration using classical homeopathy, customized therapeutic diets, nutritional supplements, and appropriate exercise.
Each patient’s plan is individualized – we have never found a “one size fits all” approach to be useful for the majority of people.
Homeopathy is part of the name of our practice because we believe so strongly in its power to cure disease. Homeopathic care involves the thorough evaluation of each patient’s exact symptoms. A single remedy is chosen that matches the subtleties of each case of disease. The remedy given restores balance to the many systems of the body that keep us well. [Read more about homeopathy.]
We want to make sure your diet feeds your joint tissue and maintains appropriate systemic pH and inflamatory balances to protect joints. There is ample evidence in the conventional medical literature supporting the role of a good diet in managing and preventing arthritis. We continuously comb that literature to add to our knowledge of the relationship between diet and disease.
We may recommend one or more nutritional supplements to help replenish joint tissue and reduce pain and inflammation. We only use supplements that have strong support in the medical literature.
Research supports the use of strength training and other forms of exercise in the treatmen of arthritis. We help patients implement a plan that is safe, sustainable, and effective at improving their health.
What about my medications?
Conventional medicines can be lifesaving in emergency situations and can control symptoms in many people. Unfortunately, they do not address the underlying cause of the symptoms. In addition, some medicines have serious side effects that make their use undesirable.
At Asheville Natural Health & Homeopathy, our programs improve your health on a fundamental level. Healthy bodies don’t need medications. Our goal is always to reduce or eliminate the need for medications, and we are generally successful.
Please don’t ever discontinue a medication without the consent of your physician, as that could be dangerous or uncomfortable.

Arthritis will tend to get better slowly over a long period of time. We can generally implement a comprehensive plan on the first visit, and follow up in one week to trouble shoot any difficulties. After that, follow up care will be needed on about a monthly basis.
Supplements may be required at an additional cost. We try to keep supplements to a minimum, but our patients may spend between $25 or more per month on supplements.
Ongoing follow up care may be required to maintain results.
