Mitt Romney’s Wife Used Natural Healing to Cure the MS

Interesting story in the news today about Mitt Romney’s great success in turning the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City from a failure to a great success. I already knew a lot of that story but what I didn’t realize was that right before he was asked to take over, his wife Ann Romney had just been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  At first Mitt thought that she would spend the rest of her life in a wheel chair, but instead Mitt Romney’s Wife Used Natural Healing to Cure the MS altogether!

Mitt Romney often is described as a turnaround artist. No better example of that is how he turned a failure into a success with the 2002 Winter Olympics.

Just before his wife Ann Romney learned that she had multiple sclerosis around Thanksgiving 1998, Utah state leaders approached Romney about taking over the scandal-ridden Olympics to be held in Salt Lake City.

At the time, the Salt Lake Olympics Organizing Committee (SLOC) had paid more than $1 million in bribes to members of the International Olympic Committee to bring the games to Utah. Even before the scandal erupted, the games had a projected shortfall of $397 million. Given the taint, few wanted to sign up as sponsors or support the event.


In the end, ticket sales surpassed those of any previous Winter Olympics. An estimated 2.1 billion people around the world watched the games over 17 days, and the United States won 34 medals.

Having faced a budget deficit of $379 million when he took over, Romney ended up with a surplus of $56 million. The money went to fund future Olympics.

When he took the job, Romney said he would accept the offered salary of $250,000 a year only if the Olympics made a profit. When it did, he turned his salary over to charity. In addition, he contributed $1 million to the games.

In the meantime, Ann Romney overcame her M.S. symptoms, which included weakness and numbness. Romney had told his sons their mother — an equestrian — might have to spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair.

The Romneys have a home in Deer Valley near Park City, Utah, where they ski. Ann had found Utah reflexologist Fritz Bleitshau, who uses alternative medicine to rebuild strength. He prescribed homeopathic cures, including acupuncture, deep breathing exercises, and yoga.

Apparently, it worked, and today Ann Romney has her stamina back.
