We discuss how:

- Jackie was first diagnosed with RA in 2016 and the pain was devastating
- After a difficult diagnosing process she started methotrexate and Enbrel, and after 8 months things weren't changed much
- In the next 6 months she went through some cumbersome insurance mechanisms and eventually was eligible for Rituxan
- She started Rituxan infusions while dropping Enbrel and keeping methotrexate, and after a couple of months she was feeling better
- In the meantime she found the Paddison Program while searching through the internet, and decided to start with it as well
- Then her insurance company refused to support other infusions of Rituxan and she decided to proceed with the Program anyway
- Jackie is now only on a minimal dose of Methotrexate and has added Bikram yoga to progress her health even further!

- Then his rheumatologist told him to stop drugs completely because they were damaging red and white blood cells
- After 3 weeks he went back to the rheumatologist, and she told him the RA diagnosis must be wrong!
- She couldn't believe the change in diet and lifestyle could have such a tremendous impact on RA

Inflammation is the enemy (NOT RA drugs!).

Inflammation is the enemy (NOT RA drugs!).

December 12, 2018

We discuss:

  • Inflammation is the enemy because it creates more inflammation via a vicious cycle.
  • It's not about having a mindset of avoiding medications at all costs but we must keep our inflammation low.
  • Disease-modifying drugs and the biologic drugs when administered correctly, carefully, thoughtfully for the right symptoms normally provide far more benefits to a long-term healing plant then they do negative side effects.
  • Medications, diet, exercise, stress reduction and supplements are 5 major tools in reversing RA.
