Holistic medicine looks at the total person: body-mind-soul. Look to the source of the problem. How is your exercise, strength, flexabity, endurance, speed, aerobics, emotions, prayer life, nutrition, stress, and love? I listen to the health radio talk shows and heard that taking human growth hormone, glucosamine, chondroitin, and MSM, or this in a treatment with shots can almost relieve the problems, and effect a cure. God bless you all!
