My guest is Triathelete and former model Angela Durazo who had several health challenges in her early 20's. She had to find a way to improve her health as all the physicians could not bring her back to optimum health, she had to find her path. A gluten free and sugar free diet is the core of her plan and it is serving her well.
Do you hear all the media buzz on gluten/sugar free diets and just can't wrap your head around the benefits? Angela is here to proclaim the benefits and share her story of survival against the odds.

IMMUNE HEALTH SERIES: Rheumatoid Arthritis.
One of the most chronic forms of arthritis is Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). It is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body's natural defense system attacks the joints.
Early symptoms of RA include fatigue, joint pain, and stiffness. As it progresses, rheumatoid arthritis symptoms may feel like the flu, with achiness, muscle aches, and loss of appetite.
The exact cause is not known, although it appears to run in some families and tends to effect women (2 to 3 times more than men) especially between the ages 40 to 60.
In this episode Bobbie talks about early and effective rheumatoid arthritis treatment to enable you to improve your prognosis and help prevent joint and bone destruction associated with RA. Treatment for rheumatoid arthritis continues throughout your life. It includes medicine, exercise, and lifestyle changes, so getting treatment early may control the condition or keep it from getting worse. Additionally many of the medicines used to treat rheumatoid arthritis have side effects. So it is important to have regular checkups and talk with your doctor about any problems and find a treatment option that works for you.
Did you know that there are more than 100 types of arthritis? No matter which type of arthritis you have, you need an accurate diagnosis before your medical provider can recommend a program for treatment.
Next week Bobbie talks about the most well known arthritis - osteoarthritis - that is so common it will affect one in seven people in their lifetime.
Can one be healed of cancer or arthritis simply by forgiving others? Our society is not only plagued by cancer and arthritis, but also by unforgiveness. Could there be a connection? Join us in the Healing River as we discuss how science yet again is proving what God said in the bible to be true! Unforgiveness blocks God from working in your life. It leads to a root of bitterness, which underlies many diseases that cause chronic pain, including arthritis and cancer. The solution is simple: Forgive from the heart!

In 1974 I was a typical guy; I loved the outdoors, riding bicycles, cars and of course I had an interest in girls. My diagnosis was not at all unexpected. My mother had type 1 diabetes as did her sister who unfortunately died when Mom and she were children. But the truth is; I had lived with diabetes my entire life, first in vitro as my mother had gestational diabetes and then as a child when she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
Then while visiting Disneyworld, I became very ill, was rushed home to Indiana and admitted to the hospital. I had my first insulin injection even before I was admitted. I was released from the hospital on my 17th birthday. I learned two things that week. Illness can happen any time and Disneyworld is not always the happiest place on earth.
For the next 26 years I was reasonably self-sufficient. There were no major illnesses or issues. But then I started to feel awful all of the time and I was having difficulty moving, walking or even sitting. That was when I was introduced to the new world of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was in the middle of my career and having RA was not a part of my plan.
I worked for 12 more years after diagnosis with RA until I was unable to keep pace and had to find a different purpose in life. So in 2008 I accepted (with great reluctance) disability retirement from my employer.
The truth is often forgotten however. I am first and foremost a husband (Sheryl and I have been married since 1977), a father (2 wonderful sons), and grandfather to 3 of the most charming, intelligent, and awesome grandchildren (I know opinions may vary).
But through it all I still love bicycles, collecting things, laughing a lot (mostly at me), sarcasm, and most importantly having a good time.
