Walt’s story, my successful battle with rheumatoid arthritis!

Hi I’m Walt Merrill. Do you suffer from horrible arthritis joint pain? Me too! I’ve suffered with my autoimmune disease for 10+ years.
Doctors told me, there’s no cure for arthritis. At my worst, I required a walker to move around. Not willing to accept a wheelchair or surgery, I made my best decision.
With my family’s help, I changed nearly everything in my life.

After researching, reading, studying, and investigating for many months, I discovered my 12 steps to greatly improving my lifestyle.


No more fast food, junk food, diet foods, soda, processed foods, sugary sweets – changed to drinking pure water, eating fresh organic vegetables and fruits with less meat!

I no longer use a walker or cane – No Pain at all.
Now, I play golf again and walk with no joint pain.

So happy with my recovery I’ve devoted my life to helping and mentoring Arthritis sufferers around the world.
If you have any questions about my journey, I’ll be happy to answer if I can.
Thanks for reading.

Stay happy + healthy,

Walt Merrill

    Hi Karla, thanks so much for your comment. I think everyone’s body reacts differently to various conditions. We’re all suffering from different types of autoimmune diseases and everyone’s unique. But I believe everyone suffering from rheumatoid arthritis can help themselves by eating healthy, exercising, and drinking lots of pure water. Stay happy and healthy! Walt

    Hi Walt: I am so happy that this worked for you. I’m aware that many others in our community have found improvement making similar lifestyle changes, although yours is certainly the most dramatic results I’ve heard of. Thanks for sharing your story.
