Tom traveled to the Goldberg Clinic from Illinois having been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis by a Medical Rheumatologist. He received numerous medical treatments including Prednisone, Plaquenil, Methotrexate and Sulphasalazine while predictably his condition continued to worsen. He experienced multiple side effects from the drugs he was prescribed (see article “Problems with Prednisone).
Tom endured numerous ups and downs in the course of recovering his health including periods of significant drug withdrawal (prednisone in particular). He exhibited patience and persistence in the two year period he worked with us at the Goldberg Clinic. Tom possessed what we refer to as “The Will to Get Well” which contributed to his success.
Tom reports 75- 80% improvement in his condition. He is now drug free. His HsCRP (an important inflammatory marker) normalized after having been significantly elevated initially (see before/after lab below). Tom’s recovery was accomplished without the use of “treatments”, drugs, potions or therapies but rather through the implementation of a highly individualized, monitored, Bio-Hygienic/Nutritional Program.
Before and After HsCRP: A marker of systemic inflammation commonly used to measure disease activity in patients with Rheumatoid Disorders and other inflammatory, autoimmune conditions. Tom’s HsCRP (high sensitivity C-Reactive Protein) was significantly elevated at 11.4 initially. Normal is less than 3.0. Nearly one year later, his HsCRP is very low (excellent) at 0.3 (without drugs) indicating, along with the absence of symptoms and improved energy and vitality, the successful reversal of Tom’s condition.
