Webinars are a great and convenient way for people to gain knowledge about different topics. It is wonderful that Natural Standard is providing a webinar that is complimentary to the public. Osteoarthritis is a disease that affects many people and providing information on alternative approaches would be useful. I look forward to checking out the webinar when it becomes available.

I am looking forward to checking out this webinar. Osteoarthritis is often a difficult disease state to treat with medication, as it requires continuous therapy with medications that have many side effects. It will be interesting to learn about alternatives to the standard therapies available to these patients. I do hope the link is updated with the webinar is available; the link www.naturalstandard.com/webinars in the article above only links to a 404 page not found site.

While working as a pharmacy intern at various retail pharmacies, I have noticed that many elderly patients want to treat and reduce the symptoms of osteoarthritis with alternative therapies instead of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or other pain relievers. The most widely used CAM treatment options are chondroitin, which has a Natural Standard scientific evidence grade of A for osteoarthritis, and glucosamine has a scientific evidence grade of B for overall osteoarthritis, and A for knee osteoarthritis. This webinar will definitely help others to learn more about these effective therapies.

Acupuncture, chondroitin, glucosamine, and willow bark all have strong scientific evidence (“A” rating) per Natural Standard’s databases, while avocado, devil’s claw, physical therapy, rose hip, SAMe, and TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) have good scientific evidence (“B” rating). I am looking forward to learning more about these therapies and potentially others in this complimentary webinar. To review osteoarthritis as a condition before the webinar, a brief, easy to understand description of osteoarthritis is available at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001460/
