How did I learn how to live a drug free life after being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis? That’s the question that I always get whenever I meet people who struggle with this or have family members who do. For the record, when I say drug free, I mean free from the prescription medications like Plaquenil, Prednisone, Vioxx, Celebrex, Arava, Methotrexate injections (weekly), and cortisone injections, etc. I took ALL of of those drugs for several years thinking that they would help cure me. Needless to say, I was wrong!! Besides a miracle from God, there is no cure for arthritis today. Did you know this? I really had no clue, at that time, I was only 25 and I did whatever the doctor told me to do. So for TEN long years, I just learned how to deal with this dreadful pain that felt so bad that I could not even hold a toothbrush or put on my clothes. The inflammation in my wrist was so intense that it felt like someone was squeezing my wrists so hard until there was no blood flowing to the fingers!
Thank goodness in 2005, I met Dr. Colbert! He talked about healthy eating being the natural cure to heal various diseases. I purchased his books, followed his recommendations and over a period of time, I no longer consumed prescription medication for the arthritis! Can you belive it??? I couldn’t, but I felt great! So I continued to study and research, more and more to understand the healing properties of certain foods and I never looked back.!
Listed below are the books that freed me from the dreadful pain and inflammation of Rheumatoid Arthritis. As I read more, I’ll add to this list.
- The Bible Cure for Arthritis, Dr. Don Colbert
- The Inflammation Free Diet Plan, Monica Reinagel
- Arthritis, Ellen Kamhi and Eugene R. Zampieron
- The Glycemic Index Diet, Rick Gallop
