I have been using my modification of an antibiotic protocol that was developed by Dr. Thomas Brown nearly 50 years ago. It is useful for all of the rheumatic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, lupus, psoriatic arthritis, polymyositis, and dermatomyositis.
My modification which includes the use of the diet seems to have dramatically improved the response rate. I have always been concerned about using antibiotics, but never really had any better options. However, recently I learned of NST and was quite surprised that it worked so dramatically for rheumatoid arthritis and scleroderma.
My chief NST therapist, Jeff, has treated about a dozen patients to date and everyone has responded. Some of the patients were on the antibiotic program for a few years and had improved, but still had residual pain and dysfunction. NST enabled them to get off their pain meds and essentially moved the disease into remission.
Jennifer is one of our recent patients who had scleroderma. This is one of the more serious rheumatic illnesses. She had been going downhill quickly prior to coming to our center, but within a matter of weeks had dramatic improvement as evidenced below by her letter.
I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how thrilled I've been with the changes in my health since coming to your center six weeks ago. I was diagnosed with scleroderma four years ago and have experienced the usual symptoms of exhaustion, muscle pain, digestive problems, tightening of the skin, Raynaud's, etc. Since becoming sick I've read a lot of books about nutrition and alternative therapies and have tried to apply many of the principles, but still found my disease progressing.
It has been so great, because coming to your Center has brought me hope, and for the first time I feel I have a plan to restore balance and health back into my life.
All of the therapies here have been great, but I really think Jeff's NST treatments have been key to the many results I'm already seeing.
I've had four treatments now, and with each treatment I've been feeling more energy and less pain.
Wow -- I feel like I'm getting my life back! Specifically, I am noticeably less tired. In fact, for the first time in four years I actually have enough energy to make it through a day.
I also no longer have pain on the back of my hands, and have less pain in my legs. I can also tell my digestion has improved. I have more flexibility in my arms and wrists. The pain I've had in my rib area for the past two years is gone. I also have less tightening of the skin on my neck. And, an added bonus -- a wart that I've had for two years (that hasn't responded to conventional treatments) is healing!
Needless to say, I am thrilled and so thankful to you and your staff!
I am also so appreciative of the enthusiasm, support and encouragement I receive each time I visit your offices. I can't tell you how powerful it is to have your health care providers smile, take an interest in you, and offer words of encouragement and hope at each visit. My spirit has been lifted and I've been encouraged to believe I will get better. I am looking forward to the day when I can say I no longer have Scleroderma -- and I know that day will come!
Thank you, Dr. Mercola, and many thanks to Jeff for his wonderful NST sessions and to Jim and Jordan for their wisdom and support!
