Arthritis, psoriasis and related rheumatic diseases are an enormous and growing problem throughout the world, with as many as 80 million people suffering from one or another of these conditions. Patients seeking help or relief from their own doctors or hospitals are often informed that they will simply have to live with the problem and that little can be done. In this book, Jan de Vries shows how the problems can be reversed by a simple nutritional and natural approach in which there are none of the terrible side effects that can sometimes accompany a course of drugs. Arthritis, Rheumatism and Psoriasis draws attention to a great variety of home remedies, from homeopathy to herbs, and places particular emphasis on diet as a source of cure.
The FRCS (Tr & Orth) examination is a stressful experience, even for the most well-prepared candidate. There is nothing more frustrating than a good candidate with good knowledge failing because of lack of appropriate preparation or examination technique. This book will guide the orthopaedic trainee in preparing for the examination before they are thrown into the lion's den. In the written section the authors give general advice about preparing for the MCQ/EMI paper. The clinical section covers both the long and short cases with examples of the most likely cases that regularly appear in the examination. The next four sections cover the remaining vivas, namely Basic Science, Trauma, Hands, and Paediatrics, each with the same structure. Finally, there are a series of real-life candidates' blow-by-blow accounts of their whole examination experience. These give candidates a real-life perspective of what to expect during their own examination. Overall, the book presents the key essentials for success in the FRCS (Tr & Orth).
