CHOOSING Health is to Take the High Road~(read on)

ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS: That is the diagnosis given me when I was 28 years old! Was told by an Orthopedist that I would be crippled and in a wheel chair permanently in my forties and be disabled. I refused to accept that 'dooms day' sentence ..... After defying the crippling effects this brings, with my spine completely fused , I went through unbelievable pain and still have stiffness but ..... many years later, I continue working in health care full time, have centered my life around fitness and exercise and beat all odds!~A rheumatologist who treated me remarked, " whatever you are doing keep it up" ...(swimming and lots of walking) plus most of all, I am a believer.... And my faith in the Lord Jesus Christ has brought me through much peril into a place of victory and fulfillment..

    Thanks for stopping by. It is a friends planter fasciitis that made me go ahead and take the plunge instead of thinking about it. She has limped as long as I've known her. I didn't want to wait till I was at that point.

    The foot massage and stretching both sound like great ideas.

    Jan, I don't remember which resource(s) have mentioned ankylosing spondylitis; but, I have seen it mentioned. My experience the last 2 years has been nothing short of amazing to me. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that food could be such a powerful healer. For me, the greatest challenge has been identifying and eliminating the foods doing me physical harm. It has take detective work and much patience. But, the rewards have been amazing!

    Hi! I love Dr. Greger's book- How Not to Die. I have read Dr. Fuhrman's book-Eat to Live several times, but I find it a bit too restrictive for me. I am following John McDougall because I find he makes a lot of sense and I find the starches very filling. The story of the Barley Men is fascinating. Engine 2 is a great read also.
    Good luck in your journey for best health!
