About the author:
Dr. Katherine Poehlmann is a professional researcher and systems engineer with a magna cum laude degree in mathematics and an MBA. She has authored dozens of scientific reports on space technology, defense policy analysis, and aircraft logistics.
Her husband Karl is also a "rocket scientist" (Lunar Lander Program, Space Telescope, communications satellites). His research skills merged with Katherine's as they sought a cure for her Rheumatoid Arthritis triggered by physical trauma.
Disabled with RA, Katherine had to quit her senior research staff position at the RAND Corporation. She and Karl spent several months investigating medical books, online articles through medical libraries, and discussions with clinicians, while Katherine took courses for a Health Science PhD.
She and Karl looked for the most benign solution possible, dubious about the usual treatment with powerful drugs and risky side effects. They were thrilled to discover Dr. Brown's insightful book "The Road Back" describing the connection between rheumatic disease and bacterial infection.
Following Dr. Brown's low dose antibiotic protocol, Katherine progressed from being "25% disabled," as determined by her doctors in 1993, to being completely ambulatory and pain-free in 1996.
Dr. Poehlmann rewrote her dissertation as a self-help book for the general reader. Since her recovery from RA, the Poehlmanns have hiked in Tibet, Chile, and over sections of the Great Wall of China. Katherine has lectured nationally and internationally, is a frequent guest for radio and television interviews, and gives free health talks to RA support groups, clubs like Rotary and Kiwanis, and church groups. She is on the board of directors for two non-profit organizations: the Road Back Foundation and the Arthroplasty Patient Foundation.

IN THIS BOOK YOU WILL DISCOVER:
-- Actions of microorganisms that cause RA-mycoplasmas,
mycobacteria, molds, spirochetes (e.g., Lyme), viruses, bacteria and their cell wall deficient L-forms;
-- Their role in other chronic illnesses with arthritis-like symptoms such as Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome;
-- Online authoritative medical information and support organizations;
-- The best Internet sites to research health, drugs, treatments, and disease;
-- What diagnostic tests are available and where to get them;
AND LEARN WAYS TO:
-- Recognize and suppress pathogenic microorganisms;
-- Destroy or eliminate the toxins they produce;
-- Control the allergies that trigger RA reactions;
-- Strengthen the immune system using natural, non-toxic methods;
-- Locate a health care professional to work with you.
Conventional RA treatments include toxic drugs that reduce
painful symptoms but do not treat the root cause, namely, bacterial infection.
An immune system weakened by drugs (e.g., antidepressants or antihistamines),
improper diet, stress, and multiple infections is unable to produce the
quantity and quality of natural antibodies to stave off new attacks.
This book describes the steps necessary to:
-- Identify, attack, and remove the cause(s) of the infection(s);
-- Neutralize pathogen-generated wastes (toxins and harmful enzymes);
-- Flush these wastes from the body; and
-- Restore the body's systems to normal, healthy function.
Until recently, testing methods to identify these
microorganisms precisely and to prescribe effective treatments have not been
available. Traditional treatments with immunosuppressing drugs often breed
stronger, more resistant bacterial organisms, which mutate and grow,
overwhelming the immune system's resources. Undiagnosed food and chemical
allergies can also amplify the severity of arthritis symptoms. In this book,
both the lay reader and physician will find an effective course of treatment
possibly leading to a cure for RA and other chronic illnesses with
