    "15 ways to start healing"
    Where does Arthritis: Escape the Pain rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would give this a 9/10 because it's a very helpful book. I do suffer from arthritis and these tips are something worth trying. Why not try something that is free and might help relieve pain!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the 15 ways to start healing and the tiny little things that make a huge difference. I have had wear and tear arthritis from excessive sports related wear and tear as a teen and I live in pain daily. It gets worse with the change in the barometric pressure (like before a storm comes).


    What about Annette Martin’s performance did you like?

    I loved how she read the book, she was easy to listen to and easy to pay attention. I would defiantly listen to other books she has read.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    The easy exercise section was helpful because everything hurts including walking for me. My knees are messed up the most, I have had one surgery and I need 2 more (one on each knee). I hate taking pills, they make me loopy, ibuprophen only helps so much. The information in this book can help you cope with your arthritis in a healthy way without being hopped up on pills all the time.


    Any additional comments?

    It bothers me when people tell me I am to young to have arthritis. I am 33 and I have arthritis through out my entire body. There are over 30 different kinds of arthritis, and a newborn baby can suffer from arthritis.

    "Just what I needed"
    Would you listen to Arthritis: Escape the Pain again? Why?

    The reason why I got this audiobook is because it is written by a genuine arthritis sufferer and not from someone who just googled the material to make a book. I am practising the author's advice for a few weeks now, and I already see some improvements. Easy exercises are very beneficial and I found some new info about nightshade vegetables that I didn't know before. Exercises and eating properly are the best way to change your life and start feeling better. I highly recommend this audiobook to all the arthritis sufferers!

    "Some Helpful Simple Insights"
    Would you listen to Arthritis: Escape the Pain again? Why?

    Yes, there is so much information that one sitting is never enough, so yes I would listen to it again


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No character but the narrator was effective and placed the right emphasis at the right points


    What does Annette Martin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Empathy as stated in previous question


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Arthritis: Escape the Pain?

    It allows you to understand the quick fixes that I misunderstood because of the medical terms used by medical practitioners, not their fault but its nice to get it in easy understandable and also easily implementable ways

    Story
    "A must have for arthritis patients"
    What made the experience of listening to Arthritis: Escape the Pain the most enjoyable?

    This book is a wonder and a must have for all arthritis patients all over the world. It teaches how to not only overcome the pains of arthritis but also how to overcome the cause of it. Arthritis causes a major disruption in the patient's daily life such as frustration, depression, and also affects self esteem. The book lets us know that there are 200 types of arthritis and can affect someone at any age. It teaches how to reduce the pain of arthritis using natural mean and not 100% cure for arthritis.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Arthritis: Escape the Pain?

    The Author made us understand that the book does not teach how to eradicate or give 100% cure for arthritis but just how to reduce the pain using natural means. If the patient listens to the audio book and practices what the author said, such as a change in diet, and embarking on excercise, the pain of arthritis will reduce significantly.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is a help packaged in a book format. Please, do not let arthritis keep you down and affect your self esteem. It can also help to prevent arthritis .....that is the better.

    "An Insightful and Beneficial Testimony"
    What made the experience of listening to Arthritis: Escape the Pain the most enjoyable?

    The contents of this wonderful audio-book make listening to it quite remarkable. Specifically, I found the 15 helpful ways to cure arthritis easy to apply.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was not any character really. However, I love the style and voice of the narrator, Annette Martin; it was not monotonous. During the narrative, she accentuated the important parts pretty well.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were no scenes. But I liked the fact that the author recommended doing simple exercises to treat arthritis rather using pills frequently.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Arthritis: Escape the Pain?

    Yes. The pain from arthritis can be quite difficult to bear. Hence, the 15 tips, in addition to other smaller tips, are life-saving means of battling pain and discomfort from arthritis.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is very useful to anyone who suffers from arthritis and related conditions. The tips given therein can positively transform the condition within a short period of time.

    Any additional comments?

    Most books in this genre are full of useless nonsense with no actual genuine advice on how to deal with the problems that suffering from arthritis can present - thankfully this book was different! NO actual cure exists for arthritis but this book gives really good and interesting advice on how to dramatically relieve yourself of the pain and live a more normal life.

    "keys to healthy living"

    many people know nothing much about arthritis until it advance to certain stage,
    for this reason and others, it is important for people to not only become aware of their risk, but also learn about the basic steps they can take to keep away arthritis.

    it's important for you to play an active role to get the most out of your doctor's visit.

    "Some really simple yet really helpful tips!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I definitely would, yes. There's so much information in this book, it's honestly a lifesaver. I've had arthritis for a long time now and this is the only resource I've found that managed to help.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Personally I found that the 15 ways to start were the most helpful, there are other smaller tips in here that make an absolutely massive difference.


    Have you listened to any of Annette Martin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't, no. However, her voice was great to listen to and I feel that listening to it rather than reading it helped massively.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't think you could make a film of this book as it is an instructional guide rather than a novel, although I could sum it up in one word - Lifesaver!


    Any additional comments?

    Go out and buy this book right now, it'll change your life in such a positive way that you won't even think twice about recommending it.

    "The Art of Eating for Arthritis"

    For me, the takeaway from this book is how important are diet, exercise, and.....I won't spoil it....but nightshade veggies! This is an idea for the 21st century, it seems, for these three things (well, all veggies, not just nightshades) play a critical role in the quality of life we experience, especially during the aging process. As someone who had family members with
    rheumatoid arthritis and saw first-hand the debilitating effects of this disease, I whole-heartedly recommend this book to EVERYONE, not just those suffering from arthritis.

    "Thank You For Your Testimony!"

    I was feeling so low after getting my diagnosis. When I heard, "No Cure" come out of the doctor's mouth I broke down. My husband just downloaded this for me and set it on my bed and walked away. I really wasn't even in the mood to listen but I'm so glad I did.
    This just have me the inspiration I need to get myself together. If she can do this I can too! Thank you so much for sharing your story with us. My husband and I both thank you.
    I like this reader too. She knows how to keep the right tone & pace.
    Books like these are the reason I love audibles.

    Lovely book - liked it was very much no nonsense, no silly claims, just good actual advice and stuff I had never actually heard before, which surprised me as i thought i knew a lot on the subject. No actual overall cure exists for Arthritis and this book does not make any claims to that nature (unlike other books!) but this REALLY helped my family member with a lot of the symptoms. It relieved a lot of the pain and brought back some mobility. A very useful book.

    I don't there is another book that you rid the pain in my wife because of arthritis as is this book.

    Yes for sure, I really liked Narrators way of narrating the audible, it was really clear to understand and voice was motivating.


    Any additional comments?

    I am Being just diagnosed with Arthritis, I knew nothing about disease, I didn't know what to expect and/or what path I should take in the way of treatment. I had a million questions that needed to be answered. This book is filled with information that helped me begin to understand what was happening to me and to get my life back in order. I am feeling so much better after I followed the advice discussed. It is definitely a "must have" if you have or know someone that has Arthritis. This Audible also deserves five stars.

    "Take control of your pain!"
    Would you listen to Arthritis: Escape the Pain again? Why?

    Yes, absolutely. This book is full of information on how to reduce pain and heal yourself naturally. It will always be relevant for me as I suffer from multiple autoimmune conditions which cause daily pain and inflammation throughout my body. I have no doubt that this will be a great reference book for years to come.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really appreciated the fact that the author is an arthritis sufferer - it made it easy for me to identify with her and helped me to stay hopeful about my future.


    Any additional comments?

    This book offers a ton of ways you can naturally reduce pain and inflammation as well as regaining and maintaining your mobility. You can do most (or all) of these things without medicine or in conjunction with medicine so it really is helpful no matter what your circumstances are. I have personally experienced some massive changes to my health since cutting out certain foods from my diet as suggested in this book. Also, I know how important it is to find a rest/exercise balance now and it's incredible how something so simple can have such dramatic effects. As I am only in my mid 30s, I have found living with chronic pain unbelievably difficult. But now that I'm taking measures to do what I can to make things easier, I feel like I've gained control over my pain for the first time in my life. And that feeling alone is priceless.

    If you experience any type of inflammatory pain, I'd highly recommend this book.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have recommended it to two friends and an arthritis support group i am a member of on Facebook.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It was not that sort of book, this is not fiction!


    What about Annette Martin’s performance did you like?

    It was good quality, well recorded and produced, a pleasing voice to listen to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Some of the diet stuff really moved me. Or i should clarify what I mean, when i found that a lot of the diet advice was WORKING, that really moved me. I finally feel like I have got some relief.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been unfortunate enough to have arthritis for 9 years. I have tried many many different things but i would say 50% of the advice i got from this book is having some help. I am not cured at all, and the book does not claim to cure people, but i definitely feel a lot better than I previously did.

    Recommended to any arthritis sufferer who wants to feel better.

    No but really enjoyed her narration, nice and easy to understand and a pleasant voice to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic. I had been searching for something to help me deal with my arthritis. I expected to get something to just help a little but instead found this book which helped a LOT. It obviously did not completely cure men but it really did give me so much advice that i found easy to implement - so many of the tips have seen a massive improvement.

    Very impressed with this book. I advise you to approach it with an open mind and just try the stuff. I can sincerely say 95% of it seems to have some sort of effect on me and in many ways i am a lot better. Very grateful to the author for writing this book!

    This was an incredibly valuable book, not only for me but also for my brother. I have personally had arthritis for almost a decade now and this was the first time I felt I got advice that was a little different…and most importantly I really feel that a lot of the advice is actually working. I feel a little less pain and a good bit more mobility. I like books like this, ones full of practical applicable advice and not a load of useless jargon. great book, I now understand why so many people talk about it. 5/5
