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. And today is a big day for me. Penguin is releasing my memoir, Hippie Boy—which I first self-published two years […]

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. My […]

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. Where is Dr. Rosenfarb located?  His clinic, Acupuncture Health Associates, is located in Westfield, New Jersey. How much does it cost? Current rates are $2,000 per week […]

I wish all of you were here to share a bottle of champagne with me, because I’m in serious celebration mode.  After five days of treatment with Dr. Rosenfarb, my first round of test results are in.  And they are AMAZING. I knew I was in bad shape. But didn’t fully appreciate how bad off […]

Laser Acupuncture for RP Treatment

This is me undergoing my daily acu-laser treatment. (I had no idea I look so sci-fi.) I asked Dr. Rosenfarb if he could provide an overview of how his laser acupuncture treatment works. Here’s what he had to say.  Laser Acupuncture works by using photo-biomodulation (laser-light impulses) at specific acupuncture points around the body. It is […]

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 […]

Dr. Rosenfarb Treatment Day 1

I’m only a day into my treatment and though I don’t know where it will lead, I’m convinced I’ve found the right practitioner for me. Why? Because Dr. Rosenfarb clearly knows eye health, he takes a whole-body health approach, is big on patient education and answers ALL of my questions. After filling out the usual […]

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 […]

Eye Exercises for RP

I first learned about the importance of acupressure and eye exercises five and a half years ago, when I started on Dr. Damon Miller’s Better Eye Health program.   His do-it-yourself home treatment program, developed by Grace Halloran—a woman who led the charge in alternative eye health for RP before her death—features a series of eye […]

Embracing the NOW

I’ve been so focused on halting the progression of this disease and proving all those retinal specialists wrong that lately I’ve forgotten my most important life rule: to embrace the present and live fully in the Now. I’ve gotten a few reminders along the way from people like Dr. Andy Rosenfarb, who sent me a […]
