a different kind of coffee break with Gerry and Ray Coffey

Disease-Free Living Through Fitness and Nutrition

We began this Advice section as a means of assisting our visitors in answering many of their health and diet questions, and in encouraging them to take a pro-active part in their own health.  We believe that the information contained herein is true, but are not presenting it as the only solution to a problem.  We, personally, have found that a vegan diet has helped our own health, and simply wish to share with others the things we have found.   Each of us must make our own decisions, for it's our own body.  If you have a health problem, see your own physician.

Diet and Pain

Hi, Gerry:

I don't know if you can help me, but it is worth a shot asking. I was told I had CRPS, when a bone scan was done it was ruled out. BUT I had a decrease in blood circulation and an increase of bone density, cause by a sprained ankle a year earlier.

I was told there was no cure but I don't buy it! I refuse to admit that at 27 I will be disabled for the rest of my life. When it gets cold out or I push it to hard, I can't walk. I am trying to find a way of fixing it since the military can't.

If you can help or point me in the right direction please let me know!

Thank you!


Hi, SP:

Congratulations on refusing to "buy it."

Have you read the article on our website at: 

If not, that and other articles on our website will hopefully provide you some information to get you back on the right track.

You are right not to give up. Had I done that I would have left this earth more than 20 years ago.

You didn't say what CRPS stands for, but all disease is usually related to having a toxic immune system caused by diet, environment and poor lifestyle practices. If you want to improve on that you are the only one who can make the positive changes once you educate yourself to the true cause of health and disease.

Take charge!!!
