Rheumatoid Arthritis

Recovery from Rheumatoid Arthritis

Who am I?

  • A 43 year old male

  • College educated - undergraduate degrees in business and computer science and an MBA

  • Project manager for a worldwide insurance company. I travel out of state a couple of times a month in a consulting role.

  • An independent person who was taught by his parents to think for himself

  • Prior to arthritis I had been very active physically all my life. Earned 7 letters in 3 sports in high school. Ran marathons and 10k races for years. Still played competitive basketball at age 39. I value the way my body functions very highly.

  • Someone who lived for almost 40 years trusting that my doctor knew best how to keep me healthy. Unfortunately for me, I found out the hard way that this was NOT the case. I quickly came to realize how little I (or my doctor) really knew about how to take care of myself in order to prevent illness and disease. Prior to October of 1997 I knew almost nothing about alternative medicine. I assumed it was some herbs and a few other things like meditation and acupuncture were of little value to me.

Why have I created this website?

  • When my arthritis was active, I was humbled in many ways. I experienced far more pain in that period (it didn't seem short at the time) than I had in my entire life.

  • I learned what it was like to be stared at because of my then ackward gait, pitied on the street, and to have women open doors for me as I had very limited ability to perform this seemingly minor task. As someone who had always prided himself on his physical condition, I saw my ability to care and provide for my family evaporating before my eyes.

  • I am very fortunate to be pain-free and all but symptom-free at this point. My intention is to give information in a rational manner to those who will listen with an open mind about how this has happened and show where they can learn more about the approach I have taken and the actions they can take to help themselves. I would like to see others benefit from my experience.
