Many people with rheumatoid arthritis make extraordinary recoveries within a few days of going on the McDougall Program and giving up eating animal foods, dairy products, and fats, according to Dr. John McDougall, M.D.

I remember a few years ago when my mom (now almost 86) came to visit. Mom has suffered with arthritis for much of her adult life and she loved her cheese and ice cream. One morning when she and my dad (almost 91) were visiting us she mentioned that she was “pretty stiff.” I suggested that just while she was on Bainbridge Island with us that she eat NO DAIRY and see if she noticed a difference. Sure enough, in a matter of days, she was moving easier and reported less stiffness and less soreness. She missed her ice cream, but realized that she was feeling good enough to make it worth while.

Can’t imagine living without dairy products? It is really quite easy. I grew up living on milk, ice cream, butter and cheese and it has been a lot of years since I have eaten dairy. How was I able to go from a double cheese pizza to a cheese-less vegetable pizza? EASY!

Self-hypnosis makes it really easy to change your wants, thoughts, desires and behaviors. Hypnosis is believed in imagination and the ultimate form of self-control. Hypntherapy is easy to learn and easy to use and puts you in control of you. Hypnosis is relaxing and better than any drug that I have ever experienced!

Arthritis is a complex condition that very often is related to foods of one kind or another. Cow’s milk proteins are among the most common offenders. The fats in one’s diet can impair the immune system in a way that contributes to arthritis. Very serious forms of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, can dramatically benefit from a change in diet that eliminates these offending components in foods.

Learn hypnosis and use it to change what you eat and ease the pain of arthritis. Hypnotherapy is a powerfully effective tool for managing pain and self-hypnosis is easy to learn and easy to use.
