Rheumatoid Arthritis

Hi, Gerry:

I was told about Dr. Malkmus by a friend. I just now learning about natural drugs, and natural healing. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis almost a year ago, and was prescribed strong anti-inflammatories, and have had to receive an injection in a finger that was very inflamed and swollen. I have been praying for God's healing, but still yet three more of my fingers have become so inflamed that it is difficult to type, which is how I support my family, and I am now facing three more injections just to function without pain, in addition, I don't want joint damage. Being on these anti-inflammatories is of great concern to me, as I nearly lost my vocal abilities due to reflux, which I have since learned how to control with diet and am no longer on reflux medication.

I have been a Medical Transcriptionist for four years, and have learned enough to know this medical therapy only treats the symptoms, and have been told there is no cure. I am also a pianist and have played for churches, and I am only 41 years old. There is no family history whatsoever on either side for this disease, and don't understand how I got it.

I just wanted to know if there truly was a cure for this disease, and what I needed to do to achieve this healing?

Thank you,


Hi, K.S:

I feel you are right to question medical therapies that treat the symptoms and not the underlying problem that causes them. Following are a couple testimonials from people who also refused to accept defeat, and beneath that a link to the Hallelujah Acres website with an outline of how to begin changing your life for the better.

You CAN take control of your life and enhance it if you set your mind to it;-)
