How C60 has changed life of rheumatoid arthritis sufferer


Matt: It comes back to that recovery thing. I
think the C60 for me, the best, the biggest benefit I’ve got is a better recovery
from any physical activity. So the following morning I feel better, stronger,
quicker than I would at all otherwise. Steve: Hi this is Steve from c60inOliveOil.com. I’m here with Matt to speak to him about his experience of taking C60 in olive oil. Matt has rheumatoid arthritis and has been taking C60 for around about three months. Steve: Hi
Matt can you tell us a little bit about your rheumatoid arthritis? Matt: Exactly as you just said Steve, I’ve got rheumatoid arthritis or rheumatoid disease as my
consultant prefers to call it. The word arthritis is really associated with the
sort of mechanical damage, so like osteoarthritis, there’s an example.
Rheumatoid arthritis or rheumatoid disease is an immune system problem
where my body is attacking itself, so the symptoms, the pain, the swelling, all that,
all that stuff is as a result of an immune system problem, not as a result of
physical or mechanical damage as it would be in like osteoarthritis for
example. Yeah, does that make sense? Steve: So how old were you when you were first diagnosed
with rheumatoid arthritis? Matt: I was diagnosed at 31. I had the first issues when I
was around 26. That was when I had the first sort of flare-ups and it was a bit
of a shock and very unexpected at that time. Steve: is there any history of arthritis
in your family? No, no rheumatoid is I think, I sort of say it’s just bad luck. It’s not something that as far as I’m aware, it’s not hereditary or
there’s certainly no-one else in the family, no-one directly related to me
that I know of has the issue. Steve: And how did it first affect you? Matt: Err I was about
26 and I was heading into Christmas that year. Err and I’d had for a couple of weeks
some unusual pains in the, err in my feet, in my toe joints, in my ankles, which
were you know completely inexplicable at the time but over a couple of weeks
became, went from being a bit of an annoyance to being something that really impeded mobility. Spoke to the GP.
They couldn’t really understand it being 26 at the time I think it’s a bit of a
leap to get from it’s gonna be some sort of injury through to it being a
systemic immune disease type position. So I was referred initially to the JR (John Radcliffe Hospital)
in Oxford and went and met with a consultant there. I was given some steroid
injections at that time which were pretty powerful things to relax the
symptoms but I had extreme swelling in my toes and ankles and at that point
there was no no we didn’t really understand at all where it come from or
what was going on. Steve: So erm did it stop you doing things at the time when you first
got the symptom. Matt: Yes yeah when in those very first few early sort of few weeks
the flare-ups were quite severe and quite scary really and then it
subsided so I got through that kind of Christmas period and having had some
treatment at the hospital with steroids etc they did some blood tests which at
the time were generally inconclusive and then the condition sort of subsided so
for the next, so between the ages of sort of 26 and around 30, 31 I recall having the odd sort of flare-up but you kind of do the guy thing and think
I’ll be alright I’ll shake it off and just walk it off and carry on but then
as I got to 30, 31, I think I was nearer 31 the flare-ups began
happening again and became more severe and more common. So then I was back to the GP
to say this happened like five years ago and we went down and had the hospital
treatment but it’s come back and I don’t know, I can’t can’t identify any trigger,
I don’t understand what’s going on. So then there was a more sort of intensive
diagnosis period so there was a lot of lot of blood work done and I was
referred to a Rheumatologist at Milton Keynes General Hospital, who pretty quickly
then gave me the official diagnosis of then gave me the official diagnosis of having rheumatoid disease. He prefers to term it rheumatoid disease rather than rheumatoid arthritis. So yeah I’ve been
on treatment ever since at that point, aged around 31. So for the last five years;
five years or so I’ve been on daily and weekly treatments for the condition. Steve: What,
what does that treatment, what medication are you had a minute. Matt: So I have two two main
drugs that are used one is a weekly dose of it’s called methotrexate and that is
a chemical which is designed to amend your immune system response and then the
second chemical is hydroxychloroquine which is my understanding is basically you take it in support of the methotrexate. So the methotrexate is the
the drug that is the real functional and the hydroxychloroquine sort of bolsters
its effect and allows you to have a smaller dose as is practically possible
with the methotrexate and deliver an effective result. So the
hydroxychloroquine is a daily tablet and the methotrexate is a is a set of
tablets once a week. Steve: Do they have any particular side effects that you have? Matt: Erm Longer term the methotrexate comes from a family of drugs that are used to control
far more serious conditions than rheumatoid disease and they are they do
take their toll over time on your liver particularly. So I have to have regular blood
monitoring. I’m now at a place where I have my bloods done around every ten weeks
and what they’re particularly looking for, as well as well as the
markers for the amount of inflammation in your blood, the other thing that
they’re really interested in is your liver functionality because the
methotrexate over time can significantly affect how effectively your liver works
and that’s obviously something that they need to be very close to and measure
regularly because there are other drugs beyond these that can be used if the
methotrexate begins to damage the liver and really affect the function. So
far I’ve had a couple of sets of results over the last
say the last six to eight months where my GP has been a little bit concerned
about the liver function. Then I get referred to the consultant, we meet, he’ll look at the numbers but then he’s more interested in the discussion with
me around my general health and well-being. The numbers are only a part of the jigsaw. Another big part of it, is how you’re able to function in
your daily life and it does restrict any alcohol intake so I’ve never been a big
drinker but what I do find is if I do have a pint or two nowadays I get a
very disproportional hangover shall we say. So I really it’s sort of put a pay
to any drinking but yeah ongoing it’s just a case of monitoring that and
and if the liver function becomes, err deteriorates, then they’ll have to look
at changing the sort of suite of chemicals that are used to manage the
disease. The hydroxychloroquine has some associated longer-term potential
side effects which most common of which is it affects your eyeballs and you can, I
forget, there’s, there’s a name for a condition that it can induce. I
forget the name of it but the basic symptoms are very dry scratchy sensation,
kind of like our arc eye, if I’ve ever worked in engineering and used a welder
you can, it feels like sort of grit or sand in your eye, um I haven’t got
there yet with the hydroxychloroquine but I believe that that is the kind of
symptom that is potential and as you’ve been on the treatment for several years
then I think after around five years they’ll send you to see the eye
specialist who know in your case history, in your file will be looking for particular
changes in the function in my eyes. So far so good, my eyes are
still okay but it is something that in the future is very likely to be
something I’ll have to face into. Steve: So what does the rheumatologist say your
prognosis will be going forward? Matt: Unfortunately with rheumatoid is it’s
pretty much entirely unpredictable. When I go to the clinic and I see my
rheumatologist which is around every four to six months now, you see a lot of people sat in that waiting room who are
at very different stages and I think the thing that shocked me the most in the
early visits to see my rheumatologist was some really young kids, you know, five,
six, seven years of age who were sat there with their parents who were in
the same clinic as you. Wow, how do you explain and manage this kind
of conditions to such a small child through to middle-aged guys like me and
then there’s a number of people and you begin to see the same people as you
go back to the same clinic time and again and it’s everything from people
who walk in off off the street for the clinic and there’s no visible signs
whatsoever and being, having rheumatoid when I see, meet new people you
look at the hands and you kind of look for where’s this guy’s problem sort of
thing; right the way through to guys, people who really really seriously
affected and in wheelchairs and have lost a lot of functionality in parts of
their body. So the prognosis is not linear, unfortunately. Every
individual, every case is different. I’m hoping that I’m on the lucky end
of the spectrum and so far whilst there’s some, there is some damage to
certain joints in both my hands and my feet. I haven’t really lost a great deal
of functionality from a day-to-day point of view but I accept that the reality is
that going forward that it won’t get any, it’s very unlikely to get any better,
it’s only ever really gonna deteriorate. So it’s about how best to minimise that
effect and manage it going forward so that you retain as much functionality as
possible. Steve: So what kind of problems do you see with you hands and you say your
ankle? Matt: So on a bad day, if you have
what’s known as a sort of flare up, the swelling happens very very
quickly so the early warning signs for me are a sort of overwhelming unnatural
heat and it feels like there’s a glass, hot glass in your blood and
normally then at that point I have to have a little routine, knowing that
probably the following morning my hands and my feet are gonna be really
sore and really really swollen I have to kind of go around the house and plan
what’s going to happen in the morning because things like opening a bottle
of shower gel the next morning if my hands are all puffy and really sore and
swollen you can’t do it. So I’ll kind of go round in the evening and think well I
need to do this and that, I’ll open lids and get things ready. It’s kind of a
strange routine and sort of things that you learn to do to cope but the
symptoms are – pain and swelling basically, to oversimplify it. So the joints
themselves will filled with fluid and it’s just very very comfortable, very
uncomfortable, very painful. You lose a lot of movement, a lot of function. On a
really bad day I can’t tie my own shoes, you know I struggled to get dressed
with my hands are really really strong because the pain is you know pretty
serious but fortunately that doesn’t happen too often, it’s quite a rarity. Steve: You
said in the pre-interview that sometimes you have to get somebody to come from
work to come and tie your shoes and drive you to work. Matt: Yeah sadly there has been a
couple of occasions in the last five years where the rheumatoid kind of
kicked off and I’ve had to call on a trusted friend or the wife. If the
wife’s at work then there has been has been more than one occasion where
I’ve had to get a good friend of mine to come to the house and I’ve had to make that
sort of embarrassing phone call in the morning, say hey buddy could you, could
you come around and give me a hand and when he arrives he sort of sees what sort of a mess you’re in really, because there’s, I remember a call one
particular occasion where I was actually struggling to get down the stairs. I
couldn’t really put any weight on my ankles at all, hands were really swollen
and i had to come down the stairs backwards on my elbows and my knees and
I think it took me about, you know ten minutes to get from the top of the
stairs to the bottom and then yeah I literally couldn’t get dressed I had to
get my friend to help me pull on my trousers and tie my shoelaces for me
before I could go out the door for the day but that doesn’t happen very often but
that in extreme cases yeah it can absolutely ruin your day or several days
depending on how long the flare up lasts. Steve: So when I first suggested
you try C60 you said you were going to discuss it with your
rheumatologist. What kind of conversation did you have with him our email
conversation did you have? Matt: So my Rheumatologist, his name’s Bill. Bill was very good in the sense he’s very happy to take either phone calls or
emails if I’ve got anything I’m worried about or concerned or want to
ask him so I was very confident in being able to talk to Bill and say look this is something I’m considering doing but wanted to get your sort of
professional opinion knowing that the set of drugs that I’m on
need the green light really from the rheumatologist to say that I
think it’s safe and and it’s something that you should do or you could do, it’s
not going to be a problem. So I contacted Bill, I dropped him an email,
explained kind of what we’d talked about, sent Bill some of the really good
literature and information that you’d shared with me so I’d read it but I don’t really have a great deal of medical knowledge and there’s a lot of words in
there that I could kind of follow but I don’t really know what they mean.
So I sent all that information to Bill, outlined sort of what we’d discussed
and Bill very quickly sort of within a day had come back to me. He’d asked for a
little more information, we shared a little bit more information with him and
then he came back and basically said I feel comfortable for you to
try this, just stay close to the, with Steve around dosages and
make sure that’s managed correctly and yeah I don’t see any reason why they
should cause any problems with your existing treatment, So yeah at that
point, the beginning of January this year we started taking the C60 on a
daily basis and Bill also did comment that I’d be interested
in hearing from you Matt in a few months time once you’ve been doing this
consistently for a while. Do you get any benefit? And that I think was more a
kind of personal interest for Bill. It was
something that one of his patients, you know I think one of his patients coming
back to him and saying I’ve started this, you knew about it the beginning, this is
kind of what it’s done for me and where I’ve got you now.
He was interested in that feedback so the next time I get to get in to see
Bill, it will be quite interesting to have that conversation with him and reflect
on my sort of C60 journey so far. Steve: So what dose did we start you off at? Matt: We began on five mils a day
orally and I think we did that for around a month, three weeks to
a month and then I remember you and I having a conversation. Have we seen any benefits? kind of conversation and I felt a little bit
awkward because at that point I couldn’t really say there was any tangible measurable benefit certainly no negatives but I couldn’t
comfortably say that it made a real difference to me. Steve: You hadn’t had any
problems taking it, often people first take it might find it has a bit of a
laxative effect. You’d not had any problems. Matt: No you did give me a good
fair warning but fortunately it seems my system is happy to accept a
daily amount of oil without any any negatives. That was, that was something I
wasn’t particularly looking forward to but. Steve: So we chatted and I suggested that
you upped the dose and I think you went to was it 20 mils? Matt: Yeah yeah so we then
increased dosage for a short period of time and we talked about loading and
wanting to get the C60 up to a higher, more functional level and so
yeah we went up to 20 mils a day. Steve: I think I suggested that just because of one your rheumatoid disease and also the combination of drugs that you are on. You’ve got quite a lot of oxidative stress. Matt: Yeah I think my immune system is probably busier than than average, yeah
agreed yeah. But we did that and again I was I was fortunate I didn’t have any
any side effects from taking the increased dose on a daily basis. Steve: So how quickly did you start to see a difference from taking high dose? Matt: I think around 10 days I think a week, a week and a half, I started to notice generally in the mornings my joints
which are most damaged and most affected are a bit stiff a bit slow to get
started and that will vary. One of the other things that affects it is the weather so really I should live in California rather than the
middle of England. Erm so but I began to feel that in the mornings that stiffness,
that slowness was reduced. So yeah i’d say about 10 days after we started with the
increased 20 mils per day dose. Steve: I think you also said that one of the other
drawbacks with rheumatoid disease is that because if the pain on your joints,
in bed you can have problems with you rolling over and it waking you up. Has that improved? Matt: um yeah I think there’s, I do think now and we’ve been
doing this for a little bit longer. I’m having less interference with my sleep
from pain which is which is just great because I think for me personally the
biggest negative, the biggest side effect apart from you know the obvious days
where things are very very sore and you’ve got a flare-up, now that’s not the
rule, that’s more the exception. The rule is that it will disrupt your sleep. It
will in some way affect your day and causing discomfort. When your hands and
your ankles are painful you’re lying in bed, you’re trying to get comfortable, you
know we will naturally move around when we’re asleep and roll around and you
kind of roll over and you’ll roll onto your hand in a certain way and you sort
of get you get an ‘Uuh,’ It’ll make you jump and it’ll wake you up really sort of startled and that
cumulative disrupted sleep or lack of sleep is probably the worst side effect
of the whole rheumatoid experience. Steve: Yeah I remember speaking to you you said that
you actually felt more positive and I wondered whether that was as a result of
just being, having better sleep and having less pain. Matt: Yeah I’d agree Steve, I think
that’s very fair, cuz the sleep thing is consistently a problem
and I think anyone who suffers rheumatoid would recognize that and I
think yeah I have I’ve had some benefit and especially in the mornings the ability to get up and out bed and get your day started more quickly
without unscrewing the lid off the jar of coffee and it being a bit of an ‘Ow’. You know just being able to break the lid off and and it took me a
few days to sort of notice and register that and it’s like, it’s kind of like when you
have a flu’. We all notice when we feel rough and you’re going down hill and you’re
bunged up and you know sweaty and horrible but as you start coming out the
other side of it you don’t really register at that point where you’re like, oh today I feel good, it took me a few days of my normal kind of routine to
then just sort of recognise in myself and go hang on a minute. If I roll the
clock back, you know a month or whatever, that that task would be a bit more
laborious or whereas I’m noticing now actually I’m just whistling through things
and getting things done in the mornings, without as much disruption or pain.
so other other things that you’re doing Steve: So are there things that you are doing now that you perhaps wouldn’t have
contemplated or wouldn’t have felt that you would be able to take the risk
because of the potential problem? Matt: Yeah, it’s not necessarily that there’s
a specific thing that I wouldn’t have been able to do before that I could
do now. It’s about, more about, like frequency and
intensity. So there are a number of activities that we all have in our lives
that you know sort of physical activity so like example my home my wife works
with horses and one of the things that I’ll do when I’m feeling good and
strong. Err yeah I’ll be out in the field and I’ll help her lead them in but
one thing I’m really conscious about in that is, the uneven broken ground if I
sort of, you know you do that thing where you sort of fall out your shoe, you kind
of roll over on your ankle. If I do that I can’t walk for three or four days
afterwards my ankle will just go (makes sound sucking in breath) really really quickly. So I’m very very
conscious but what I’m finding is I’m able to do that sort of, I still have to be
careful with how I step and all that sort of stuff and wear the right shoes
and support myself but I’m not getting the pain and swelling that would
normally ensue. So example I could go out on a Sunday, help the wife with the
horses, bring them in from the field, do all that kind of stuff and on a Monday
there’s not really any problem there. So Monday I might then go and do something
in different. i might go hit the rower and have a session on the rower. Or one of the
things I really enjoy and one of my sort of hobbies, I’m a bit of an amateur car
detailer. So things like polishing cars I really enjoy doing it and cleaning
and polishing and actually you know hand polishing and actually hand polishing the paint but you can imagine putting all that torque and constant stress, even
if you haven’t got any sort of rheumatoid or any sort of arthritis type problem. Polishing is a pretty intense thing and your
shoulders get tired your hands and wrist gets tired and I guess if you’ve ever
done it you’ll know you know the following morning you’ll feel it. I’m
finding that I could do more physical activity, more often, so that it comes
back to that recovery thing. I think the C6O for me; the best,
the biggest benefit I’ve got is a better recovery from any physical activity, so
the following morning I feel better, stronger, quicker than I would at all
otherwise, yeah. So I could say I could do Sunday I could go do the
horses, Monday I can row, Tuesday I could go and spend a few hours
in the evening polishing the car. Whereas if I think if I had stacked those
activities back-to-back day-to-day, previously it wouldn’t have worked. I’d have got
to day three and just been like, no way I can go head out
and start polishing by hand because my hands are really sore and tired from gripping the rower or dragging the horses in across the field or whatever it would be. It
feels like in combination I’m able to do more physical activity, more often and I
get a much better recovery. That to me that’s the single best,
biggest benefit that I’ve noticed since we started doing this. Steve: So would you say
that it was something you would recommend other people? Matt: I, definitely yeah
and I think it’s hard to sort of qualifying and to stick your
chin out and say I think this is something that other people should do but
having now done it for almost three months, thereabouts we’ve been doing this. I’m really comfortable now I’m really confident in saying if you’ve got an
affliction like mine or something similar that there is definitely an
improvement I’ve noticed personally. I know that without a doubt, I know that this
recovery thing and and it’s worth a lot to me, to be able to do
more things, more frequently, particularly things I enjoy. Yeah that’s
quality of life isn’t it. It essentially adds value back to yourself. So I think yeah I’d
recommend it, definitely worth trying. And if people with a similar position to
me so rheumatoid sufferers, I think they would get the same sort of benefit.
I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t and I think that would add
real value to anyone in my position. You’re still going to get, it won’t
change anything sort of physically. Like my hands still look damaged, you know
anyone who looks closely at my hands can see that the joints are misshapen and
it doesn’t have that effect but the key thing is functionality being able to use
your hands to do the tasks that you want to do and I think the C60 is definitely
helping me do the things I want to do and do them more often. So yes I would recommend it, it’s definitely worth trying and I’ve
definitely I get some benefit from it it’s definitely helped me. Steve: So you’re
gonna continue taking it? Matt: yep yeah I will do, I will do, yeah, absolutely
as I say it makes it makes a tangible difference to me and I’m able to do more
of the things that I enjoy doing more often. So yeah this to me having done
it now sort of consistently for around three months or so. There’s nothing,
there’s no other variable that’s changed that’s been introduced into
my life and my routine. To me I’ve been doing it long enough now to feel
confident to say that that’s the thing that’s making that difference. I haven’t
changed anything else my medication regime is exactly as it was,
my diet is still as average or poor as it’s ever been. I’m not
doing anything different, it’s the C60 I think, I’m convinced that that it’s the
thing that’s making that difference now. Steve: Thank-you very much Matt. Matt: My pleasure

    make my own c60…. great stuff… I been Giving it to my family and friends…. But, the change i seen the most is on my cat… he is 14 years old minix, with thick fur, he out side a lot in Alaska. My cat for several years loses a lot of fur and i have to brush him every day. After feeding him C60 over period of two weeks, the cat (Hoser) fur loss has stopped. Amazing healing effects on the cat….. Hoser now thinks and acting like he is a kitten chasing ever playing with ever mouse he can bring home. C60 is Great stuff…

    Skin cancers, diabetes, Ross river fever….. some of the things me and friends have dealt with in last few months of c60….. all our respective doctors are asking questions.

    Rheumatoid arthritis as well as most autoimmune diseases, is caused by nanotechnology. It comes from medicines, chemtrails, vaccines, our food supply from the chemicals and chemtrails, supplements like this also supplement additives such as silica. Has anyone else noticed that taking a high quality vitamin no longer has the effect it used to? Nanos are smaller than a cell, hide inside our cells and then our body goes after them anyway. Our bodies are not making accidental mistakes! C-60 is nanotechnology and what it does has nothing whatsoever to do with healing. He is either paid well or the product knocked around some of the resident nanos temporarily. When this nanotechnology he is consuming assembles in his brain and then he will start to hear voices. (Only God your Creator will be able to block those voices from AI.) There is nothing natural or holistic about it just because it has the word carbon. It's circuitry. Stop taking this and start detoxing. This entire issue is part of a backdoor attack on health minded and spiritual people.
