If you have read through this website before reviewing this
page, you will have noticed that I have shared the following things:
- Who I am and why I have created this website
- The approach I have taken to
from my severe RA
- Information to logically support this approach
- Results - bloodwork and physical functionality
If this information makes some sense
to you, below are some recommended next steps.
- Review the
websites and studies/articles I've mentioned and learn more

If you can't find his book (it's out of print), take a look at
which has the best information
(by far) that I know of related to how to run an effective
elimination diet. It would also be a good idea to read
Robert McFerran's manuscript on the internet which will give you some
background related to this approach (links below).

- Ask me questions
- I'll do my best to answer.
- Tell me something
from your experience - I'll
be happy to listen. No one has all the answers, including me.
- If you want to ask
advice and remain anonymous , go to
Dr. Stoll's bulletin board and post under an alias if you wish.
Your questions will be answered (for FREE), much of the time during the same day.
- Print this
information and take it to your doctor or
rheumatologist. Chances are he/she will not be familiar
with it, but it's best to communicate it and start a discussion. My
guess is that they will not have much good to say about the
approach, but as you have seen, I have
gotten fantastic results and I got them by taking
VERY few risks - definitely
MUCH less than are included in the
typical drug-based approach.
- If you want/need
the personal attention of an expert, contact Robert McFerran
(As Robert is very busy attempting to finish his book on RA, you may have a hard
time contacting him in the near future.) I'll be honest with you. Robert is VERY knowledgeable, but is not a doctor
by training. Of course, many MDs refer people to non-MD nutritionists
every day (although Robert is much more than a nutritionist). If what
you see here makes any sense to you, the lack of an MD degree should not
stop you as mainstream medicine does not have the answers here. Robert's
words to me several months ago: "if they followed
the protocol, I have not seen ANYONE that did not improve."
This covers hundreds of people over a several year time period.
How many rheumatologists can say this?
I would personally recommend this as I have obviously had great
success going this route. Robert will not accept payment for this
service - I've tried to pay him. Actually I owe him much more than I
can EVER repay.

In case you're wondering, I've seen this approach work on
people who have had RA for many years as well as those like myself who
are in the early stages of the disease.
What are your risks here?
You don't have to drop any DMARDs. The elimination diet described here has been
successfully used on thousands of people. Of course, use your common
sense and plan this out. Get your family and friends
to support your efforts - this is important
. Time and effort is required. It
took me 3-4 months to see significant improvement.
There is no "magic bullet."
Downside? Changing habits
(especially eating) that are ingrained in all of us. This is the tough
part for most people.
