It's Your Life December/January 2015 - 2016 - Page 22

22 It’s Your Life Magazine Dennis works at the family store, but since December 1994 he has been a registered nurse. I find it amazing that he has one foot in the traditional world of medicine and the other in holistic. At the same time knowledge of both helped him find the problem while helping others heal naturally. In July 1995 Dennis got married him and his wife have 6 children. They are kind of like the Brady Bunch with 3 girls and 3 boys the girls are 26, 17, and 11 the ages of the boys are 15, 13, and 8. There have been times I have walked into the store only to find Dennis there with one, sometimes, two of his children helping him at the store. As you can see this is truly a family run business from the oldest down to the youngest. After over hearing his conversation on over coming RA I knew I had to interview him. Health Line dot com states that 1.5 million Americans suffer from RA. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the synovial tissue between the joints. This is because Issue 5 it is mistaken as a foreign intruder such as bacteria or a virus. I met with Dennis at the store to hear his story and share with our readers in hopes that more people could be freed from RA naturally. Joyce: When did you first notice there was something wrong? Dennis: September 2013 the night of the first LSU game we had a party and I was fine. When I went to bed I couldn’t sleep due the pain in my left ankle. I had suffered with gout since 1989, bu t this was different so I went to the emergency room. They took x-rays and said nothing was broken just a lot of inflammation. Joyce: So what did you do after that? Dennis: Prior to this happening I was doing some sprinting with the kids I thought maybe I broke my ankle and didn’t feel it for three days. I took cherry extract for inflammation and rested. I also took Go-Outplex as a precaution thinking maybe it was gout. The thing is I never dealt with gout in my ankle only my toe. S U B S C R I B E
