A Shift in Mindset

Last year at around this time, I was holed up in a hotel room—sobbing over my latest doomed prognosis from a retinal specialist while my husband and two daughters bonded on the ski slopes. This was our third family ski trip and like the others before it, I chose to sit it out, telling myself […]

Help Me Put the National Spotlight on RP

Okay…after two weeks of nonstop book launch craziness, I’m finally back in Seattle and back to my daily eye health routine. I’m re-committing myself to my whole-body health focus: diet, lifestyle, emotional health, physical health with eye exercises and supplements sprinkled into the mix. I’m also back to my daily kale, celery & cucumber juice […]

Taking Today to Celebrate

 In some ways, this post doesn’t have much to do with my eyesight-healing quest. But I think that every once in a while, we need to just stop and enjoy life and CELEBRATE the victories.

But life sort of got in the way.  I sprinted from my final appointment to the train station, barely made my flight, landed in Seattle early morning Dec. 14 and then was slammed straight into holiday season prep, work catch up and family vacation. My […]

I wish all of you were here to share a bottle of champagne with me, because I’m in serious celebration mode.  After five days of treatment with Dr. Rosenfarb, my first round of test results are in.  And they are AMAZING. I knew I was in bad shape. But didn’t fully appreciate how bad off […]

Laser Acupuncture for RP Treatment

This is me undergoing my daily acu-laser treatment. (I had no idea I look so sci-fi.) I asked Dr. Rosenfarb if he could provide an overview of how his laser acupuncture treatment works. Here’s what he had to say.  Laser Acupuncture works by using photo-biomodulation (laser-light impulses) at specific acupuncture points around the body. It is […]

Dr. Rosenfarb Treatment: Day 2

Day 2 treatment was a lot like the first:  laser therapy for the first treatment, electro acupuncture for the second treatment — with micro acupuncture (needles in the palms of my hands and bottoms of my feet) incorporated into both. I’ll break out the reasoning for each treatment in upcoming blog posts.  My takeaway from […]

Dr. Rosenfarb Treatment Day 1

I’m only a day into my treatment and though I don’t know where it will lead, I’m convinced I’ve found the right practitioner for me. Why? Because Dr. Rosenfarb clearly knows eye health, he takes a whole-body health approach, is big on patient education and answers ALL of my questions. After filling out the usual […]
