A Little Bit About Me
In 1986, I developed reactive arthritis, a condition similar to rheumatoid arthritis. For 5 years the joints in my body were so painful that I could not walk more than a few feet or stand for more than a few minutes at a time. I often couldn't even do such simple, everyday things as turn door knobs due to arthritis pain in my hands. My doctors tried everything they knew, but they could not help me.
My response was to spend years in a painstaking investigation of alternative health techniques, focusing especially on those that promised to help rheumatoid arthritis or chronic pain. I found remedies that completely cured my arthritis. I can now easily ride 30-50 miles on my bicycle, walk and stand for long periods. I have no residual joint pain. My goal now is to show others what I did and how it can help them conquer their own arthritis.
