Arthritis Success by Catharine

TAFYH Success Story by Catharine
I started this program because of the problems with my feet.  I have arthritis in my feet and was getting to the point where I could hardly walk.  I have been to different doctors, including specialists and the best I got from any of them is that I need to learn to live with it, and taking Tylenol in large doses!  Although the Tylenol helped getting me through the day I always resented that and kept thinking there has got to be a better way.  I need to learn what is causing this!!!!
Different doctors and practitioners have also told me over the years that my body is full of inflammation, which was causing asthma and the arthritis.  I always felt that this means that my body is always at war!  It is always fighting something, but how to change it or what causes it was everybody’s guess.
Than Tina started talking about this so-called wonderful program she was on, and gave me the book the Cancer Injury, and although I was somewhat cynical, thinking this is yet another diet or whatever, there are so many around, she was so enthusiastic that I wanted to read the book and I started to use the basic herbs.  The Chi Tonic, Solstic Energy, Cat’s Claw and Chlorophyl. 
The book, once I started reading it made total sense to me, it really got my attention and I just felt that this was right!  I have always felt that we need to listen to our bodies, they are often smarter than our brains, (which we try to steer) and they do tell us, only we need to listen!! 
My cholesterol was high; my blood pressure was high, and I had numerous suggestions from the doctor that I should really be on medication.  I kept telling them that I wanted to try to do this naturally, but was not sure how to go about it.
Arhtirtis in my whole body was getting worse, some days I could hardly get around and I would feel like an 80 year old or worse.  I kept saying if this goes on I won’t be walking in a couple of years, but still did not know how to change it.  My asthma has been a bit better the last few years, but looking back it was really bad in the years when I lived through very high stress due to dramatic divorce issues.  Now it makes sense to me that the high stress was really instrumental in this.

I am now walking again, and am enjoying every step I must say, my feet are feeling better, and although I know the issue is still there, they are definitely getting better.  It did not happen overnight, so it makes sense that it does not disappear overnight either.  I finally found the cause! I feel better, and my blood pressure has come down to normal.  Even my doctor was excited about that.  My joints are overall feeling better, and I sleep better!  I have lost appr. 9-10 lbs and slowly but steady keep going down.  I am a wonderful advertisement of how right this program is!
