PORTLAND, Ore., July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Phil Escott, author of Arthritis – The Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me: Healing The Pain Of Psoriatic And Rheumatoid Arthritis And How Autoimmunity Can Heal Your Body And Soul, has written this story about his onset of symptoms, the despair and pain that followed, the frustrations with the doctors' ineffective chemical approaches, and finally finding success through diet, lifestyle and emotional balancing. There are many laughs and a wealth of practical advice on subjects seldom touched upon in other books on arthritis such as ketosis, cold thermogenesis, circadian rhythms, rebuilding the gut flora and methods for untangling beliefs that create problems in the mind. Phil also delves into root causes – our certain life circumstances, which eventually manifests as disease as the body follows suit. It's a tale of discovery, failures, successes, awakenings and ultimate surrender.
Phil's knees and ankles had blown up to the size of grapefruits. Inflammation in his spine and wrists had become so painful that it felt like he had broken glass throughout his body. Walking was excruciating. After three months with numerous doctors who did nothing for him, Phil took healing into his own hands.
In desperation, Phil began doing weeks and weeks of research on Google, which led to many things that didn't help and a few that did. And it was then that he started to realize that the real answer to curing comes from subtraction – one by one getting rid of the things that caused your arthritis in the first place and recognizing that only then will the body reset itself.
There are more people suffering from arthritis and autoimmune diseases than cancer and heart disease in every country in the world. In the USA, one in five adults suffer from arthritis or 52.5 million people as well as 250,000 children. It's estimated that by 2030, 67 million over the age of 18 will have arthritis in the USA.
"Like us all, Phil ascribed to the precepts of what could bring him health, and he found that most of what he was told enriched others but just left him more broken. The medicine man's chronic wallet biopsies did not bring him solace, but discomfort. Instead of viewing that stress as a misfortune, he used that discomfort to innovate a change in himself by changing his priorities. Any misfortune 'that lies outside the sphere of choice' should be considered an opportunity to strengthen our resolve, not an excuse to weaken it. How did he become stronger when he was weaker? He added ideas to his own recipe of experience to create brilliance." -- Dr. Jack Kruse, respected neurosurgeon and CEO of Optimal Life
