The Scariest Thing About Ankylosing Spondylitis

You live in constant, agonizing pain. You have been told it may fuse your spine. Your only option is a life of taking drugs to hide the pain, yet you are still left with pain, and now have to cope with the side effects and dangers of a life of heavy medication.

You have been told it is related to Uveitis and a host of other possible ailments. You have been told it is a genetic disease, and once you have it, you have it forever.

You are powerless. You are a victim of your genes, and you are a victim of an incurable disease.

After all these, it may be hard to imagine that I haven't even touched the worst of them yet.

Don't believe me? Keep reading.

The scariest thing about Ankylosing Spondylitis is the belief that people cannot recover from it.

Rest assured, there is no cure for AS, but let us define what a cure is...

According to Merriam-Webster.com a cure is defined as "a medical treatment that stops a disease and makes someone healthy again".

So what does this mean for those with AS?

It means there is no pill and there is no injection you can receive that will cure your Ankylosing Spondylitis.

So let us now move in another direction. One that is much more optimistic and empowering.

Let us begin to study the people who have intentionally and systematically achieved full remission from all pain and symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis.

It is now time for you to discover, like I did, the secrets of these AS Victors and use this knowledge to your advantage.

You have nothing to lose but the pain.

I honor you, and I congratulate you for embarking on this path to better health and less pain.
