“We are continuously rebuilding our bodies. 

Within any seven-year period, each cell is replaced.”


by Edgar Cayce (1877-1945)

Finally, Maki has started her class “Reverse Your Rheumatoid Arthritis by Yourself!” through online!

Refer to the pictures (right) effectively showing how her method works!  The right column shows herself treated (actually "reversed") her own rheumatoid arthritis, while the left column represents typical patients going through the conventional treatment and still struggling.

She was diagnosed as "Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis" 40+ years ago and experienced the toughest time in her life. Then she decided to leave "conventional treatment" for her own "holistic treatment" that lead her from a miserable wheelchair-bound girl in Japan to the top-notch personal trainer in a high-profile fitness club in New York!

As she has become an independent trainer after 7 years with Equinox in NYC, she is ready to teach you how to "reverse" your rheumatoid arthritis!
