Therapeutic Nutrition as a healing modality earned my undying devotion and support in a dramatic fashion. A number of years ago, my husband developed rheumatoid arthritis and had to stop working and was an invalid for a number of years. During this period of invalidism, we searched diligently for a program and/or a physician to reverse the downhill progress of this ailment. After visiting twenty physicians who treated him with the traditional program of pain killers and other drugs, we were fortunate in locating a medical-nutritionist. His therapy incorporated a strict nutritional regimen plus appropriate physical therapy to rehabilitate his body.
