About The Arthritis Off-Switch
The Arthritis Off-Switch can help you instantly “switch off” your arthritis and joint pain from home without drugs, needles, or surgery. Over three simple steps, the 40-page Arthritis Off-Switch book will give you clear, step-by-step instructions for shutting off pain:
- You’ll learn about a special kind of fatty acid that can “stop arthritis in its tracks.”
- You’ll find out about another nutrient that helps form collagen, which can help you “regrow healthy joints.”
- Finally, you’ll be taught about a special point in your hand that, “when simply touched in a certain way, may actually be able to turn off your joint pain.
In fact, The Arthritis Off-Switch Start is so easy to use that you can get started today “with a couple things you probably have in your kitchen.”
Let’s be honest; you’re here because The Arthritis Off-Switch sounds too good to be true, and you’re looking to learn more. So, is it a scam, or have you finally found the answer to your joint pain? That’s what we’ll help you decide.
What Exactly Will You Learn In the Arthritis Off-Switch?
The short answer? It’s fairly uncertain, which is odd, considering that the book’s video made it seem like the whole program is based on several scientific studies (which the video never reveals, BTW). But we are told a little bit, so let’s see what information we can extract.
Fatty Acids That “Stop Arthritis In Its Tracks”
Most likely, The Arthritis Off-Switch is referencing omega 3, which is a great source of EPA and DHA fatty acids. This is an extraordinarily common supplement with a ton of published research behind it, so we’re not sure why the author was shy about coming right out and naming it.
Nonetheless, these omega 3 fatty acids:
“…block inflammatory cytokines and prostaglandins; they are converted by the body into powerful anti-inflammatory chemicals called resolvins. Fish oil also lowers blood triglyceride (fats that circulate in the bloodstream), protecting against heart disease and reducing high blood pressure.”
In other words, there’s a lot of evidence indicating that fish oil and the omega 3s it contains could reasonably help reduce joint pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis (versus osteoarthritis, caused by wear and tear).
What Nutrient Helps Regrow Healthy Joints?
According to the Arthritis Off-Switch video, you’ll learn about a nutrient that can increase collagen production, which is a key ingredient for good joint health.
The problem here is that multiple vitamins and nutrients are helpful for boosting collagen production, including vitamin C, vitamin e, copper, and silica, many of which are typically obtained through the foods we eat. Remember this, because we’ll come back to it shortly.
Hand Pressure = Pain Relief
Is there really a spot in your hand you can press and relieve your joint pain?
Although this might sound like snake oil, the author is talking about something called acupressure, which is basically “acupuncture without the needles.” In other words, by applying pressure to specific areas along the body’s “energy meridian,” you’ll be able to “restore health and balance to the body's channels of energy and to regulate opposing forces of yin (negative energy) and yang (positive energy).”
The problem? While some people claim acupressure has made a big difference in their pain, and although it’s been used for thousands of years in China, there’s essentially zero clinical evidence proving that it works.
How much will this vague information cost you?
Is The Arthritis Off-Switch’s Price On Point?
Technically, The Arthritis Off-Switch is free; just pay $6.95 to cover S&H and your very own “printed, bound, high-quality” copy will be mailed to your home.
Along with your order, you’ll also receive three bonus reports:
- “The Missing Link to Curing your Arthritis”
- “The 3 Drugs Never to Take if You have Arthritis”
- “The Missing Link to Curing your Arthritis”
Based on what we’ve learned so far, we’re going to talk about some concerns we have about The Arthritis Off-Switch and then we’ll wrap things up.
Some Concerns About The Arthritis Off-Switch
Other Books Like The Arthritis Off-Switch
We’ve reviewed a whole lot of books that deal with different subjects than The Arthritis Off-Switch, but which follow the same basic formula: First, they’ll draw you in with a lot of personal stories. Then, they’ll promise you the moon, but deliver only vague information.
As you probably noticed in the Arthritis Off-Switch video, this process will repeat over and over, which is something we covered in-depth in our guide to long form sales videos. You’ll also see this occur with products like Sciatica SOS, Hair Loss Protocol, Navajo Restore My Hearing System, and dozens more.
Many of these books come with bottom-of-the-barrel online customer reviews, generally complaining that they contain little useful information, much of which can be found elsewhere online for free. For example, try typing “best foods for arthritis” into your favorite search engine, and you’ll be met with thousands of results.
Granted, this doesn’t mean you’ll experience the same with The Arthritis Off-Switch, but they definitely follow the exact same formula.
Who Produces The Arthritis Off-Switch Book?
The Arthritis Off-Switch was authored by Dr. Allan Spreen, a general practitioner based out of Mesa, AZ who has authored several other “natural” remedy health books, such as Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures Today and Miracles Of the Vault.
Dr. Spreen also seems to be associated with Dr. Al Sears MD, and is somehow involved with the membership-based Health Sciences Institute and NorthStar Nutritionals, which only seem to peddle nutritional supplements and other e-books like The Arthritis Off-Switch.
Overall, both companies appear to have a mixed online reputation with customers. You’ll find a couple different Ripoff Report entries from customers who felt scammed, while others claim to have benefited from the information they received.
What Kind Of Arthritis Do You Have?
As we mentioned above, even if The Arthritis Off-Switch worked exactly as the company claimed, it’s only intended to address osteoarthritis, which is caused by “mechanical wear and tear on joints,” while rheumatoid arthritis is an “autoimmune disease in which the body's own immune system attacks the body's joints.”
Why is this important? Although both of these are technically classified as arthritis, “each has different symptoms and requires different treatment. So an accurate diagnosis is important.” Be sure to speak with your doctor first!
The Bottom Line About The Arthritis Off-Switch
Now, it’s important that we give The Arthritis Off-Switch a fair shot. So, is it possible that the information it contains will help reduce your joint pain? Perhaps. But based on the company’s reputation and customer feedback for nearly identical e-books, it’s our opinion that it’s not very likely.
Instead, as we mentioned in the previous section, your money will probably be better spent speaking with your doctor. And if you want to find much of the same information, try spending a few minutes searching online!
