Rheumatoid Arthritis

Thomas 2007 USA

In August of 2005 I came down with a serious illness that kept me out of work for nearly a week. During the course of the illness, I had a fever that broke 105 degrees. Shortly after the illness, I had an eye infection arise that stayed with me for over two months. None of my doctors could figure out the cause of the infection. However, the infection cleared up on its own. In December of 2005, I had a knuckle turn red, felt warm, and ached to move. I called the doctor and he called me in for some blood work. My RF factor came back slightly elevated (24). The doctor said he didn’t think it was nothing to worry about, but sent me to a rheumatologist just incase. The rheumatologist did some more blood work on me and found the ccp titer to be elevated (54) cut off rate was (5). The doctor informed me that it may be RA, but wanted to wait for more clinical symptoms to apppear before starting treatment. However, I took the initiative and found out about the AP protocol through a friend that was in remission from RA from using minocycline to treat her illness. I found an AP doctor close to where I lived. He started me immediately on the medicine, which has provided me with a steady improvement over the last 10 months. Now, I feel I am 95% better. My only symptoms is pain in my feet periodically and one toe that seems to be sore. Aside from that, I am completely healthy…no fatigue, swollen joints, or erosions. I work 50-60 hours a week as a science teacher in a local public school. I feel that my illness was caught early and will be kept in check with this simple pill. I encourage everyone to stay the course: my main symptoms started to disappear after the sixth month. I take minocycline 100mg twice a day. Also, I take turmeric, vitamin d, and a probiotic. As a side note, I know two other people personally that had severe RA, but have been in COMPLETE remission from their disease by taking this amazing pill. Here’s to a new you!
