Synopsis: A journal of one woman's descent into the hell of severe, crippling, deforming Rheumatoid Arthritis; her successes-turned-to-failures with conventional treatments - gold salts injections, penicillamine, Oraflex, methotrexate, joint replacement, bone resections, tendon transplants, etc. - and her return to normal living through sustained successes with alternative treatments including fasting, homeopathy, acupuncture, and others.
From the Publisher: There is a growing number of reports written by medical experts for medical experts on the clinical treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. There are many books written by psychologista offering advice to victims on how to live with this disease which afflicts so many and completely cripples some. This is a first-hand report written by someone who has actually lived with the disease since 1970 and has made herself a lay expert on all of the above and more. This book will add a vital, flesh-and-blood third dimension to the flat picture presented by double-blind science, to which RA is still a mystery disease.
Barbara Jay Nies is an authority by virtue of thirty years personal experience and study. She was a model "compliant" patient. She had excellent health insurance, access to the best medical centers, teaching hospitals, and state-of-the-art techniques. She kept all her appointments, experienced a brief bloom of success with each conventional treatment, and quickly slid backwards into debility and depression every time. In 1992 she summoned the courage to strike out on her own to educate herself on what else might be available and she managed to find her way back to normal life no longer dominated by Rheumatoid Arthritis.
