Ellesbells, thank you so much for your informative post!
I have minor symptoms of arthritis; mainly in my big toe and slightly in my knee. The Arthritis in my toe became a major problem when I could no longer find comfortable shoes, nor can I walk for extended periods of time. Jogging for exercise is a vision of the past.
I went to a Dr. for relief, and he suggested anti-inflammatory medication, which would totally upset my stomach, so I opted to endure the pain. I went to a podiatrist who wanted to charge me $400 for an orthotic to ease the pain in my toe, but to increase the pain to my pocketbook ($400!!!!).
Needless to say, I left there without the orthotic and still had my pain. I’ve been trying to alkalize my system by eating right and juicing and I’ve found that the pain isn’t as bad. I’ve even been able to walk the malls (something that I couldn’t do unless I took an over the counter pain killer).
I so totally agree that the key to Arthritis is in the diet. As soon as I finished reading your post, I went to Amazon.com and ordered the book.
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I’m going to share your inspirational story with my friends.
