Rheumatoid Arthritis


I honestly don't think words can express how grateful I am!

I came to Mazin in May, suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis as a result of having had COVID. To say I am grateful is an understatement. I have been blown away by the success of a treatment I knew nothing about. He is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and reassuring. I would not hesitate to recommend Mazin and the Avicenna Centre. They have honestly changed my life. I am currently pain and symptom free, and feeling really well thanks to Mazin.


I highly recommend the Avicenna Centre, and the care of Mazin Al-khafaji in particular. I have rheumatoid arthritis that has been quite debilitating in the past. With Mazin’s care, I saw dramatic improvement in symptoms within days, and was fully asymptomatic within weeks. When, a year later, I had a resurgence of RA symptoms post-covid infection, I again sought Mazin’s help and was again symptom-free in short order. As a western-trained physician myself, I am all the more humbled and grateful for the expedient healing and holistic care I have received via a knowledge base and expertise unlike my own. What has been something of a miracle in my own life Mazin offers as a straightforward matter of course in his practice. I cannot recommend his services more highly. 


When our son was a few months old he had a severe case of eczema. We were recommended Avicenna and within a few days of treatment we saw improvement, and after six months of treatment his skin was completely clear. When our son was five years old he became seriously unwell with Juvenile Arthritis. Again, we approached Avicenna and within six months he had completely recovered. Mazin's understanding of Auto Immune diseases is amazing. We couldn't recommend him and the centre enough.Thank you. 


Dr. Mazin has saved my life. Nine months ago I could hardly walk/lift my child, sit or get up without any help because of a nasty auto immune disease called Rhemotoid Arthritis. NHS doctors wanted to put me on heavy duty drugs called methotrexate (light chemo), steroids and do monthly infusions just to calm the artritis to prevent me from being in a wheelchair. Of course now they are in complete disbelief and it's a real shame that not enough people know about this and that it's not funded by the NHS. They said I would battle this for the rest of my life but now I am in complete remission. I was limping into the clinic from so much inflammation and pain all over my body nine months ago and now I can proudly say I am doing ballet again twice a week, waking up with zero moring flare and playing with my kids. Auto immune disease is no joke and im eternally grateful for my new lease of life. Thank you Dr. Mazin and the Avicenna clinic! I am forever grateful to you. No one should have to suffer without knowing that we have optiobs that actually work!


When I first came to see Dr Al-Khafaji, I was going through a severe flare up of rheumatoid arthritis.  I felt weak, ached all over and had swollen, very painful joints in my hands which restricted my movement of them and which made simple tasks, such as writing, very difficult. 

Within ten days of taking the prescribed herbs, I was already a different person and, six months later, I am now free of pain, confident in my health again and feel strong both physically and mentally.  And I am much happier.  Thank you!


I remember when I had to crawl upstairs, couldn't lift my arms to drive because my shoulders hurt so much, had footballs for knees, felt exhausted all the time and had many more painful and debilitating symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.  I have taken Chinese herbs, prescribed by Mazin Al-Khafaji at the Avicenna Clinic, for the past 11 years.  I still have R.A. but am healthy, very mobile and virtually pain free - it is wonderful!

I was introduced to Mazin who with his long expertise of Chinese medicine restored me to pain free normal activity in 9 months.


I have suffered from increasingly acute rheumatoid arthritis for the past 28 years.  Seven years ago, after an incapacitating attack, and the failure of other remedies, I was referred to Mazin Al-Khafaji.  Following his treatment I recovered immediately, and since then, under his continuing treatment, my arthritis has been miraculously contained, with none of the side effects of many of the conventional arthritis related drugs.  I am indebted to him and to the Centre's staff for enabling me to lead an active and pain free life.


I was diagnosed about 10 years ago with R.A, and was treated by Western medication.  The treatment worked for a short time but with long term side effects.  Weight gain, thin skin, change of hair texture (steroids).  Encouraged by a fellow sufferer, I saw Mazin Al-Khafaji about two years ago.  I felt better within myself two days later.  I have minor flare ups about once a year (I am lucky) and turn to Chinese medicine.  I encourage anyone to try them and see what a difference they make to one's life.


I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in hands and arms.  The treatment was strong chemical pills, entailing blood tests every 10 days.  I was introduced to Mazin who with his long expertise of Chinese medicine restored me to pain free normal activity in 9 months.  I consider myself lucky to have met Mazin and wish everyone the same success as me.
