Diagnosis: Rheumathoid arthritis
“I recommend traditional treatments. I am a very active person and at my age (46 years old) I had major problems due to a rheumatoid arthritis, inherited from my family… I’ve been reading about treatments employed by Dr. Tutu and about the results he achieved in treating this illness. After discussing with him I started the acupuncture treatment and I had to take some herbal medicine drinks, plus some adjustments in my diet, plus a Tibetan fire therapy and some special procedures for repositioning the skeletal system. I noticed a decrease in pain in the first 2-3 weeks of treatment, but major improvements in mobility I noticed after 3 or 4 months of treatment. Gradually I started to exercises, I replaced the elevator with climbing the stairs and the car with walking (as often as I could) and after several months of treatment I achieved the performance of running 3 kilometers twice a week, which was theoretically impossible, given my previous condition.
I have to add that I also took the allopathic medicines at the recommendation of Dr. Tutu; I would have stopped the medication but Dr. Tutu did not want to destabilize the body in any way. We reduced the medication after my medical results showed that I was allowed to.”
