When Joy Fennell was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) back in 2008, the future looked bleak. The New York City-based makeup artist was only in her early 30s, but she suddenly found herself unable to lift her arms over her head or walk without a cane, and the only solution doctors offered was an intensive and side effect-laden drug regimen. After becoming nearly bedridden, she decided to take her health into her own hands and find another, drug-free, path to healing rheumatoid arthritis naturally.
In this episode Joy talks about:
her misdiagnosed carpal tunnel prescriptions for a Prednisone and Plaquenil and many other powerful drugs how obesity played into her disease how she avoided a double-knee replacement and neck surgery the role that Rolfing and chiropractic treatment have played in her recovery how her health coach friend helped her as well as a symptom-tracking app, why she believes it’s essential to take control of your own health destiny.
