Detoxification and Rheumatoid Arthritis
I have a lot to be thankful for, after the 12 week Detox Program Jenny put me on in 2007. It was the one of the hardest things I’ve done in my life but I had good motivation to do so!!
I had Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Psoriasis and excruciating pain, which together were debilitating and had seriously diminished my quality of life. I couldn’t do the simplest things, like hanging up washing, preparing meals for my family, dressing myself easily, washing my hair … even driving the automatic vehicle became a struggle. I became depressed, which I had never experienced before in my life.
It was truly awful, I had forgotten what it was like to have a good laugh.
Then … I was diagnosed with Chronic Rheumatoid Arthritis, and told I would be in a wheelchair in 5 years!
I decided to follow my gut instinct, and ignored the advice given by my neurologist and rheumatologist to use Methotrexate (a chemotherapy drug) for the rest of my life. I rarely even took a Panadol so this was not the way for me.
I researched dietary changes and began to eliminate acidic foods from my diet and replace with wholesome alkaline foods. I removed carbs (sugar and white flour), alcohol, coffee and dairy and even certain nuts! In 4-6wks I started to feel less pain and after 8mths I was so much better I decided to re-introduce my favourite foods (pasta) and coffee and wine. Within days I was in pain, my bowel symptoms returned and I was terrified I was going back where I had come from.
I spoke to Jenny and she recommended doing a serious Integrated Detoxification Program of 12 weeks to Remove (bad bugs), Renew (good bugs) and Repair (the gastrointestinal tract).
Well, it worked a treat and along the way when I experienced a few hard times, Jenny was there to help and support me. The last phase was the hardest, but I’m so glad I stuck with it and I haven’t looked back. I have been in remission now for 5 yrs.
I advise anyone with any chronic illness to go and seek advice from Jenny at Upbeat Health and you too could get your health and vitality back! Life is to be enjoyed, not to be spent in misery thinking POOR ME!! You must be proactive to get results that can be life changing. Thank you so much Jenny, you’re a gem” – Myriam; Perth WA
