Author Phyllis Eisenstein, a long-time sufferer of inflammatory arthritis, had been an exemplary patient who carefully followed all of the drug therapies prescribed for her. Unfortunately, as soon as her body built up a tolerance to any medication, the pain would return. Potential drug toxicity and severe side effects simply became a part of her existence. The author decided that if there was a better way to stop the pain, she would find it. And to her credit - and amazement - she found a safe, reliable, and natural way to stop the agony of this inflammatory disease. Taking the lead from a pioneering nutritionist, Ms. Eisenstein experimented on herself using a wide variety of nutritional supplements. Through a series of trials and errors, she found one nutrient that - taken in a large enough dose - would actually halt the pain. However, her work had only begun. To understand why this supplement was effective, she carefully researched the history and science of this nutrient. To prove to others that it actually would work, she contacted Dr. Samuel M. Scheiner of Arizona State University to carry out a single-blind study. The results of her and Dr. Scheiner's investigation were remarkable. This well-known yet overlooked nutrient - vitamin B[subscript 5], commonly called pantothenic acid - provided pain relief at a fraction of the cost of drugs and with no toxicity or side effects. Here, then, is the compelling story of this revolutionary breakthrough in natural pain management - from Ms. Eisenstein's first encounter with inflammatory arthritis to her work with Dr. Scheiner; from the first discovery of pantothenic acid to the reasons why it was so long ignored. Also included are suggesteddosage regimens, and adjunctive usage, as well as advice on working with your doctor.
