Robert Jay Rowen’s “Second Opinion,” December 2004 — Jerry’s story
You Can Reverse Crippling Arthritis
If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and have been told, “There’s nothing we can do,” I have a wonderful story that should give you hope.
Jerry Anderson, a 65-year-oldSecond Opinion reader from Texas was told by his board-certified rheumatologist that he would become completely immobile and likely be dead within two years.
Jerry had developed a galloping case of inflammatory arthritis. He was given high levels of Big Pharma chemicals to suppress symptoms and had not responded. When he arrived at my office, he was an invalid in a wheelchair, unable to muster the strength to move it, or even set its brakes. His hands were swollen to twice their normal size and all of his limbs were virtually immobile. He was in agony. An unrelated condition had caused a partial paralysis in his right leg.
Jerry consulted with me by telephone only two weeks before coming. I suspected several conditions I’ve repeatedly written about in these pages. Specifically, hypercoagulation (a folic acid metabolic defect), likely infection in his joints, heavy metals, infection in his teeth or jawbones (root canals), and insufficient adrenal hormones. He decided to pay me a visit and flew out immediately with the assistance of a dear friend.
Amazingly, we quickly confirmed all of these suspicions.
Jerry received low-dose antibiotics (minocycline), hyperbaric oxygen, and oxidation treatments for infection. I placed him on the low-dose adrenal hormones of Liefmann (available from Women’s International Pharmacy). Chelation therapy, both IV and oral, was used for heavy metals. Low-dose heparin was given for the hypercoagulation. Folapro was provided for the folic acid metabolic defect, and other nutritional supplements for naturally easing inflammation.
Within one week, the pain and swelling in his hands was sharply reduced and his energy level was dramatically higher. By the end of his third week with us, I was shocked by what I saw. He was able to self-maneuver his wheelchair to his van, stand, load it up himself, and drive away. By his fourth week with us, after dental work to clean out extensive root canal and jaw infections, this previously crippled man climbed two flights of stairs (even with his partially paralyzed leg) and was walking around the office with a walker. The staff exclaimed joyously, “A miracle in action!”
Folks, you want to know the reason for our coming health care bankruptcy? It’s because Big Pharma products do nothing to treat the cause of disease and only create new problems with their toxic “side effects.” Jerry is a miracle in progress and wants you to know his story. He can’t wait to shock his rheumatologist by walking into his office.
Millions of Americans are needlessly suffering from painful and crippling inflammatory and so-called “autoimmune” conditions. Drugs can be part of the solution, but only if directed at the cause.
