There are several different types of Scleroderma. I was diagnosed with the most critical variation on this exquisite torture By January, 2002 my skin was rock hard. I thought I could not move my fingers because of the swelling but I soon discovered my hands were frozen in a claw-like position because of my skin. This thickening progressed quite rapidly, moving from my hands up my forearms, and from my feet to my calves in just a few months. It then spread across my chest and into my stomach. Within a years time, it moved all the way up my legs and arms, my entire chest, and the most frightening of all for me, into my face. This Scleroderma had spread from head to toe and I was completely disabled by 2003. I was unable to walk alone more than ten feet due to all the pain of stretching skin that did not want to bend because it had become rigid. Another part of the pain was caused by this generalized sclerosing (hardening) of tissues, which constricted and narrowed my veins and blood vessels. This process severely compromised my circulation. Not long after it had spread across my chest and trunk, the sclerosis also had spread into my esophagus, which restricted me from eating solid or dense food. Ellen managed to reverse her scleroderma, using EFT and a variety of other approaches. This is unheard of in conventional medicine. Ellen has taught another woman with Scleroderma her methods. Katies disease had advanced to the point that she was on dialysis. Katies scleroderma has also been reversed.
