Tommy's Arthritis Cure
Tommy Stanton firstname.lastname@example.org Wrote: Dear Notmilkman, I had arthritis for four years, couldn't sleep at night hands swollen and hurt all over. I spent two years going to Duke University's medical clinic and wasted my time. I only stopped hurting during a couple of months when it was very hot like 90 to 100 degree weather, and for a week every year when I go to New Orleans during the hot summer. One day last month I sat in the hospital all day with my daughter and that night my pain was easier than it had been in months. The next day it started back and by night I was in pain as usual. I couldn't sleep, I mean at times I had rather been dead then to keep hurting like I was. I was laying in bed trying to figure what I had done different that one day to stop hurting and I thought about milk. I pulled up your site and that was my last glass of milk, I was drinking about a half gallon a day except during real hot weather and when I was in the motel on vacation. I stopped the milk and drink water all day now and in three weeks my pain is ninety percent gone, I can sleep in an air condition room or with a fan and can't even tell when its going to rain. My knees don't make the cracking noise now when I bend them and all this is three weeks. I'm off ibuprofen and two other pills the doctors gave me. It may come back but I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed the last three weeks. Dear Tommy, You are not the first person to find that the cure for rheumatoid arthritis is as simple as giving up all milk and dairy products. Print the following information and carry it with you at all times. If you are ever again tempted to eat pizza or ice cream, reach for the following pain-saving lifesaver: "There is a colossal amount of information linking the consumption of milk to arthritis..." Fit for Life, by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond "Nutritional therapy, not drugs, is the cornerstone of alternative treatment. A treatment for arthritis that relieves symptoms in a large percentage of patients is based on the theory that most arthritic symptoms are allergic reactions." What Your Doctor Won't Tell You, Jane Heimlich "Rheumatoid arthritis is more severe than osteoarthritis... dietary change sometimes has a profound effect. Dairy products, the most common food allergen, are one likely candidate as a contributing causative factor." Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition by George Eisman, R.D. _________________________________ "...43 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, those assigned to a vegan diet...had improvement in rheumatoid arthritis symptoms." British Journal of Rheumatology, 36(1) 1997 _________________________________ "In the case of the eight year old female subject, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis was a milk allergy. After avoiding dairy products, all pain was gone in three weeks." Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, 1985, 78 _________________________________ "Controlled trial of fasting and a one-year vegetarian diet eased symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis." The Lancet, 1991, 338 _________________________________ "I once saw a 65 year old man, Bob, who complained of neck stiffness and headaches. His hands were so stiff and sore. Bob lived to play golf. I instructed him to give up all milk and dairy products. Since giving up dairy products, he no longer experienced pain and headaches, and his hands were also pain-free. Joy, a 42 year old woman noticed that her knees were pain-free after eliminating dairy products. Once, after drinking a glass of milk, her knees swelled within 20 minutes." No Milk, by Daniel Twogood, D.C. _________________________________ "Certain foods trigger the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, and eliminating these foods sometimes causes even long-standing symptoms to improve or even remit entirely...All dairy products should be avoided..."
