He lost weight, energy and the ability to work with regularity - in fact there were times he could only work for sixty minutes a day. With a blossoming real estate business to run, Ari knew an hour per day was unacceptable. Against the advice of doctors and loved ones, Ari embarked upon an extraordinary painful journey to cure what medical textbooks consider an incurable disease. Through trail and error, Ari not only regained control of his life but beat this seemingly unbeatable disease an is now symptom-free.
