About Dr. Joel Fuhrman, M.D.

You’ll hear me talking about Dr. Joel Fuhrman throughout this site. So who is he and why do I feel so strongly about his methods for treating diseases like rheumatoid arthritis?

Dr. Fuhrman is a board certified medical doctor (M.D.), certified with the American Academy of Family Physicians. He practices in Flemington, New Jersey (USA) and specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods.

Here's a clip of him talking about the benefits of superior nutrition from a new documentary, Processed People:

Dr. Fuhrman has written several books:

His work is acclaimed as a medical breakthrough for weight loss, disease reversal and prevention.

I first came across Dr. Fuhrman’s book, Eat to Live, when I was doing research on natural ways to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA). I absolutely believe that following his specific protocol for autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis is the only reason I am off all medication and in remission from RA.

Joel Fuhrman is widely published, from medical journals such as the University of Pennsylvania Journal of Orthopaedics and Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, to consumer publications such as Mothering Magazine and Health Science. Here’s a link to one of his papers.

Dr. Fuhrman is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and is a member of the Board of Directors of the National Health Association. He serves on the Advisory Panel of The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and as a Diplomat for the American Academy of Family Physicians.
