If you have arthritis, or know someone who does, you know how painful and debilitating the disease can be. The best way to deal with arthritis varies depending on how bad the disease is, where it hurts and how much of an impact it has on your daily life.

The recent change in weather from warm, sunshiny days to very cool rainy one may have also marked a change of health for you. In the past, this time of year has been noted for the increase in viruses, colds and flu. If you have bronchial problems or allergies, the barometer change may also have created breathing difficulties for you. The good news is that the extra financial burden that usually accompanies ill health can be averted and you can make it through the cooler season easily.
