Previous Life: I was a member of the scientific staff of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, a federal public health agency, where I researched and wrote articles published in medical and public health journals. I served as a peer reviewer for an international medical journal and was a scientific adviser to state and local governments. I was considered an expert on research design and human subjects protection. I received a lot of awards.
Present Life: I’m now a writer and author. I was diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis nearly 20 years ago and, after using the research skills mentioned above, learned how to manage the condition to the point that doctors today don’t realize that I was once considered gravely ill. My life continues very nearly as though nothing ever happened. I don’t see doctors any more, at least for arthritis.
All these years later, I’m dismayed at how little medical advice has changed. My purpose with this blog is to show others an alternative to lethal pharmaceuticals for managing the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Please be aware: This blog is based on my experience, the experience of others and published research. The purpose of this blog is strictly educational. I am not a doctor and do not give medical advice. Each of us must consider the facts and find what works best for us.
