The Courage to Do What’s Right

Jeanne and I have come under attack for sharing Per Otte’s protocol—which has been available in the public domain for years—on this blog. We’ve also been criticized for spotlighting Eye Acupuncturist Mats Sexton and his desire to share his knowledge to help people around the world gain affordable, local access to treatment that could possibly […]

Tanya’s Eyesight Saving Quest: Guest Post

I have been struggling with RP my entire life. Even when I don’t remember struggling with it, I was. When I was a toddler my mom recalls me holding her hand extra tight when going into dark places. Of course it was easy to write it off as “afraid of the dark” when there was […]

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 […]

Headed to Treatment with Dr. Rosenfarb

I spent all of yesterday on a plane and a series of trains, headed to Westfield, New Jersey for two weeks of treatment with Dr. Andy Rosenfarb. I’m not crazy about spending two weeks away from my family or amassing more debt. But I vowed not to leave a stone unturned this year in my […]
