I recently bought one of Margaret Hills’ books for my mother in law who is in a bit of pain with
Arthritis. The reason I did so was because at the age of 21 I was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis. I was a very sporty person and was devastated by this. At times I couldn’t even stand the weight of a bed sheet on me at night. I was very depressed and all I could think about was the prospect of being wheelchair bound at some point in my life. I went to see specialists who all said the same thing. You’ll have to learn to live with the pain. I was 21 and just thought… I don’t want to live with this bloody pain!!! I cannot stress how depressed I felt. I was at an all time low and just at an age that you should feel your best. I grew snappy, unsociable and just wanted to be left alone.

Then one day my Mum gave me a book. It was written by Margaret Hills. I read it several times. I couldn’t believe my luck when I found out that Margaret Hills actually lived in Coventry (being from Coventry myself!). I booked an appointment to see her and that meeting changed my life. I’m now 40 years old. I have had my life back for the last 18 years. Because of Margaret Hills and her book, formula and guidance, my experience of my condition was brief. Brief as it was though, I will never forget the pain. I will never forget the dark days and I will never forget the joy of recovery.

All I have now is one or two not quite straight joints. I had to have one of my toes broken and straightened because I kept getting a corn on top of it where it rubbed constantly against my shoe due to the severity of the bend. But the fact of the matter is, the pain of the condition had gone within a year of reading the book and meeting Margaret Hills and touch wood, to this day, I remain well. I owe her a lot and wish that I had made contact long before now so that I could have expressed my gratitude to her personally.
