Rheumatoid Arthritis with severe case of rheumatoid nodules

My name is Charlene and I’ve had Rheumatoid Arthritis for the last 14 years. I have been on many medications to help relieve the pain and the progression of this disease. The last medication was Enbrel. I gave myself an injection twice a week. Even though I felt better, I developed nodules on my fingers and wrists. I even had some of the nodules removed by surgery but they came back. It came to a point that I could no longer afford this medication, so I began looking for other options.

In October of 2006, I went to see Dr. Sharif. He put me on an Anti-Inflammatory Diet. Along with this diet he had me start taking some natural products, such as UNDA’s to help my GI (gastrointestinal tract) and my kidneys. I also give myself castor oil packs on my abdomen. This, along with HMF that I take are just two of the natural tools to help treat my immune system to becoming healthy.
Between the diet and all the natural tools that Dr. Sharif has given me my health has greatly improved. I can’t believe the difference in the way I feel, including more energy. By continuing doing the diet and natural tools, there will come a day when my immune system will be healthy and I will be able to eat a normal and healthy diet and my Rheumatoid Arthritis will be gone. By the way, I’ve also have seen some of my nodules disappear!

I can’t thank Dr. Sharif enough for giving me my life back. I will follow what he says, because it works!



Fibromyalgia and Castor Oil Packs

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 20 years ago. My symptoms became increasingly worse over the years. I had flu-like body aches around the clock, and Tylenol was my best friend; it helped me to get out of bed and through each day.

I started seeing Dr. Sharif in mid 2006 (it is now January, 2007), I had never heard of a castor oil pack and had no expectations-only a willingness to try ANYTHING to end my day to day agony.

Using a castor oil pack seems to be an old-fashioned treatment, but there must be a lot of wisdom behind using it, because it has given me a new lease on life. After a couple of days, I noticed there were no more body aches, I didn’t need to take Tylenol anymore, and my skin began to lose its decidedly yellow hue. I can only think that my liver
must be really happy! I found that I was sleeping better and was on my way to having much more energy. I am very grateful because I can now participate much more fully in life.

I know it’s not magic, but it works; and that’s good enough for me.

Anti-inflammatory diet helps significantly reduce bodily aches and pains.

I’ve experienced years of muscle and joint pain, with some success here and there in dealing with it. Often it interfered with my sleep. Within the last year, as I entered my 70’s, more stiffness became a part of that scenario. There was a kind of exhaustion that accompanied the symptoms, even though the pain was never severe. Finally about 6 months ago, I experienced an increase in all this to the point where I knew that I was experiencing inflammation as I never had before. It was in most of my major joints and it made me extremely tired to move normally. Dr. Sharif prescribed the Anti-inflammatory Diet along with some anti-inflammatory supplements. Within a few days I had relief which has only increased since I’ve been mostly on this diet. The pain and stiffness have steadily lessened. At first I used some topical analgesics as I had done before the diet. (I’m not able to use pharmaceutical analgesics like aspirin, Ibuprofen, etc.) Often I used them at least once a day. Now I may feel the need to use them about once a week or less. The diet is quite restrictive in many ways, yet it is not hard to follow when I prepare my own meals. As a side effect I’ve lost the extra weight I’d accumulated over the last few years. I feel better in general than I did for the last 3 years or so.
