Arthritis

February 19, 2017 by Robert Campbell (Register to contact)

Three and a half years ago I rapidly declined from an active walker to crutches due to arthritis. It was the best thing to ever happen to me!
I went on a low card diet, quit drinking and about 18 months later I was back on my feet. I still can't hike for hours like I used to but I'm able to walk again!
The process took me on an adventure where I have learned a lot about nutrition and medical plants. I'm a champion for stretching, walking, eating for health, and self awareness. It's a shame it took me so many years to understand what I know now.
