Marlene reversed chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis that she had been suffering with for over seven years. The following are her words describing the healing breakthrough she has experienced with lifestyle changes and the autoimmune elimination program.
Last November (2010), I decided to go to the Exodus Health Center and meet with Dr David Jockers after reading his newsletter for almost a year. I was looking for an alternative way to helping my Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was diagnosed with RA 7 years ago and have been on various medications starting off with Celebrex and now prednisone and methotrexate, the combination which I have been on for several years.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Healed:
Prednisone is very dangerous and should not be taken for such an extended period of time and yet my doctor insisted that I will have to continue taking these meds for the rest of my life. I kept telling myself there has to be another way or something else I can do to help my condition.
When I met with Dr Jockers in November of 2010, I was in severe pain in my hands. My fingers, knees, & feet were swollen. There were many mornings when I woke up and I could hardly straighten up right away without intense pain. I had to hold onto the wall to walk and the bottom of my feet would ache as I put them down on the floor.
My doctor told me that as long as I took my medicine, I would have minimum flare up & pain but the moment I did not take it the pain would return. He never gave me hope I could overcome this condition. I realized the meds were only controlling my pain & not really addressing the cause of the RA.
This Program Transformed My Life:
It is now April of 2011 and after following the the autoimmune elimination program for less than 6 months, I have gotten amazing results. Over time, I had felt significantly better after getting adjustments and changing my diet. I asked my doctor to reduce my meds and he dropped them to half the quantity. I recently decided to put this to the test and stop taking my meds all together & I have had no problems. My joints feel great and I have no more pain!
Thanks be to God for leading me to Dr. Jockers and the education I have gained on how to live a healthy lifestyle. I have not felt better about my health than I do now. I plan to continue down this path of healing and incorporating this into my life & sharing it with others.
