Amazing truths ignored
on 18 February 2007
Dr. Mansfield goes over the important influence diet has on most forms of arthritis, arguing that 75% of all arthritis is due to a food allergy of some sort. He has based this on the 2000+ patients he has treated at his clinic. He writes a very thorough introduction and supporting chapters not only arguing his points but also bringing in case studies as evidence for his conclusions.
I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I have had finger problems for the last 1.5 years and have also knee, hip and shoulder pain to the point where I can only jog for about 20 min before I have to limp home. I then require about 3 days to recover. It has become depressing. I was very skeptical about this book and the elimination diet but I became desperate and figured no harm could be done in trying (Dr.Mansfield claims that by day 5 and 6 you will feel better than in years). It was amazing. By day 6, all my finger pains were gone! I was completely shocked. My knees, hips, shoulders and fingers all felt 90% better. After 1.5 years of pain, to think that only 6 days on a new diet would cure things. I am shocked. It is sad that the whole medical profession doesn`t know these truths (my doctor told me I was wasting my time and it was unhealthy). Thank you Dr. Mansfield! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!
Feel free to write me if you would like to know more about my personal experiences with the elimination diet and medical problems.
