Yes. PreArthos has been designed with the recognition that patients will probably already be on other treatments. However, you should still consult your doctor before starting any new medications or herbs.

Why did your doctor recommend PreArthos or PreArthos+?

Medical treatment of arthritis has been limited to the use of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID's) such as aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil®, Motrin®), and naproxen (Aleve®) and COX-2 inhibitors such as Celebrex®. While effective, all these drugs have large and potentially dangerous cardiovascular and gastro-intestinal side-effects.

PreArthos and PreArthos+ are all natural, twice-daily therapeutic formulations of synergistic botanicals, which collectively reduce inflammatory pain. They contain several plant-based COX-2 inhibitors, which also have cardio-protective functions, besides being protective on the stomach.

I am 48 years old and like most others my age, I was increasingly concerned about my rising cholesterol level. I was skeptical about using an herbal product as treatment but after hearing about PreLipid I gave it a try, and the results speak for themselves!

When I got tested, my high cholesterol levels were a shock and a real wake up call for me. I did not want to take a prescription drug fearing that it would interact negatively with what I was already taking. I found out about PreLipid from a friend and now my cholesterol is back in a normal range.

I dropped my cholesterol level 30 points in just three months. What more can I say - the secret is out! I strongly recommend PreLipid to anybody that is serious about their health.

Pre-disease or early disease is when we have a real opportunity to reduce the burden of chronic disease through evidence-based botanical therapeutic formulations. I believe that this is also the place that many botanical remedies will prove to have the most impact because of their milder, yet optimal therapeutic effects and a almost non-existent side effect profile.
