Hi. I am 28 years old and have just been diagnosed with cervical spondylosis. I also have problems with my knee and hip on my left side. I have been practising yoga for about a year now and my condition doesn't seem to affect my ability, but I do notice a weakness on my left side.

As I am still quite young, I am keen to do whatever I can to slow down the degenerative process. Can anyone give me some advice about which asanas would be most beneficial.

Also, does anyone know how effective an anti-arthritis diet is against osteoarthritis rather than rheumatoid arthritis?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Li,

You can do a search function on this web site to see what other posts have covered this topic. Searching "arthritis" brings up 17 prior posts, including the antiarthritis diet from Indra Devi. You can also search "spondylosis". I have had several students who have reported tremendous relief of arthritic symptoms from a regular practice of the Joint Freeing Series. As your condition relates to the neck, you may need to take extra care and I would recommend that you please post this topic to Mukunda's Q&A for his comments. Hope you find the information which will be helpful for you!
