Going it Together

The coolest, most unexpected part of my eyesight healing quest has been connecting with other people struggling with Retinitis Pigmentosa who — like me — refuse to take “no hope” for an answer.  And they all come with incredible family members who are equally determined to ensure that their loved ones  continue to SEE the […]

I’m back in Westfield, New Jersey, for my second treatment session with Dr. Rosensfarb.  In the three months since my first treatment visit,  I don’t feel like I’ve had much of a chance to breathe.

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.

Andy Rosenfarb Treatment Week 2

Okay—I know I’m about two weeks late in posting this. 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.

The Low-Down on Dr. Rosenfarb’s RP Treatment

The RP treatment test results I posted on Friday have generated so much interest and so many questions that I want to try to address them all here.
