I have been using mymodification of an antibiotic protocol that was developedby Dr. Thomas Brown nearly 50 years ago. It is useful forall of the rheumatic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis,scleroderma, lupus, psoriatic arthritis, polymyositis, anddermatomyositis.
My modification whichincludes the use of the dietseems to have dramatically improved the response rate. I have alwaysbeen concerned about using antibiotics, but never really had anybetter options. However, recently I learned of NST and was quite surprised that it worked so dramatically for rheumatoidarthritis 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 andhad improved, but still had residual pain and dysfunction. NST enabledthem to get off their pain meds and essentially moved the disease intoremission.
Jennifer is one of our recentpatients who had scleroderma. This is one of the more serious rheumaticillnesses. She had been going downhill quickly prior to coming to ourcenter, but within a matter of weeks had dramatic improvement as evidencedbelow by her letter.
I wanted to drop you a note to let you know how thrilledI've been with the changes in my health sincecoming to your center six weeks ago. I was diagnosed with sclerodermafour 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 alternativetherapies and have tried to apply many of the principles, but still foundmy disease progressing.
It has been so great, because comingto your Center has brought me hope, and for the first timeI feel I have a plan to restore balance and health back into my life.
All of the therapies here have been great, but I reallythink Jeff's NST treatments have beenkey to the many results I'm already seeing.
I've had four treatments now, andwith each treatment I've been feeling more energy and less pain.
Wow -- I feel like I'm getting mylife back! Specifically, I am noticeably less tired. In fact,for the first time in four years I actually have enough energy to makeit 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 myrib area for the past two years is gone. I also have less tightening ofthe skin on my neck. And, an added bonus -- a wart that I've had for twoyears (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, supportand encouragement I receive each time I visit your offices. I can't tellyou how powerful it is to have your health care providers smile, takean interest in you, and offer words of encouragement and hope at eachvisit. My spirit has been lifted and I've been encouraged to believe Iwill get better. I am looking forward to the day when I can say I no longerhave Scleroderma -- and I know that day will come!
Thank you, Dr. Mercola, and many thanks to Jeff forhis wonderful NST sessions and to Jim andJordan for their wisdom and support!
