ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE FOR POLYMYALGIA RHEUMATICA (PMR)


At our center we use complementary and naturopathic medicines to treat PMR.

Patient Testimonial

"
Dear Dr. Belanger: I am so thankful that the supplements ordered by you have done such a good job of controlling my PMR.  As you know, my regular physician was going to prescribe prednisone that I would have to take for six months.  I promptly said “thanks, but no thanks.”Since following your instructions regarding diet and your regimen of supplements, I feel about 95% better and have been able to follow my normal routine without being so tired that I had to sleep after everything I tried to do.  Also, the pain in my wrists and hands has subsided.  Each time I have a success with naturopathic medicine, it just strengthens my commitment to naturopathic care" Sincerely,Patricia Duncan

From Boston Globe Article 2/25/01:

Winchester resident Lee O'Keefe, 69, counts herself as an example. One evening three years ago, she woke up in searing pain, barely able to struggle to a sitting position. She was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease polymyalgia rheumatica, and her medical physician prescribed drugs that helped her regain movement, though debilitating fatigue lingered. 'I couldn't lift a spoon to my mouth,'' she recalled. ''I felt like every bone in my body was broken.''After a friend urged her to contact Belanger after attending one of his lectures, O'Keefe made an appointment last July. Suspecting a food allergy, Belanger recommended vitamins and dietary changes that excluded corn, potatoes, wheat, and dairy products.The new diet ''wasn't pleasant, but I made the commitment to myself, just like I made commitments to my husband and children,'' O'Keefe said. ''After a few weeks, my fatigue began to lift and it became easier to stick with. Now I can shop a little, play with my grandchildren again. I've got my life back.''
