Kicking Her Rheumatoid Arthritis

Sherene had Rheumatoid Arthritis, but now she’s doing just fine. Here’s her story:
Dear Dr. Fuhrman,

Last August I had a telephone consult with you for my RA with a follow up 6 weeks later. I've been following the plan you gave me religiously since then. I've even come to enjoy the watercress in my morning smoothie and the daily juiced cruciferous greens.

My RA is in complete remission, all blood tests are normal and I have no joint pain at all. A great side effect is that my asthma has gone. I have not used any asthma meds since November and despite this being peak allergy season for me, my lung function tests are perfect.

I can't thank you enough for the changes to my health that your advice has made possible. This is the first time in my adult life that I have no systemic inflammation. No active RA, no iritis, no corneal rejection and no asthma. I didn't realize that a body could feel so good.

Many thanks for changing my life.


Start a Blog, Lose the Weight...

Ali Hale of Diet Blog wants to know, Could Writing a Blog Help You Lose Weight? Here’re five reasons why it could:
  1. Community support from other dieters: The "dieting blogosphere" contains some of the most supportive and friendly people you'll meet online.
  2. Making yourself accountable to others: Have you noticed how much harder you work at the gym if an instructor or personal trainer is watching?
  3. Seeing how far you've come: Once you've been blogging for a couple of months, look back at your earliest entries.
  4. Helping your readers to lose weight: The challenge that you've successfully managed to overcome is almost certainly something that others are still struggling with.
  5. Fame and fortune: If you write well and consistently, and have a great story to tell, you just might get lucky and join the elite group bloggers who've won book deals.
I’m not sure about the fame. You won’t find my butt on Oprah anytime soon, but blogging might help you drop the pounds. Check out Full of Veggies:
