Clint Paddison was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2006 and within two years could barely walk with pain crippling 80% of his body. After surgery and medications failed to resolve his disease, Clint went back to his science roots which, in the year 2000, saw him gain 1st Class honours, The Macquarie Foundation Science Prize, The NSW Institute of Physics prize, and achieve semi-final status for Young Australian of the Year. With bulldog determination, persistence and scientific experimentation Clint turned his health around and now leads a healthy plant-based lifestyle drug free. Despite the once-dire medical prognosis, Clint is now the loving father of three young healthy children Angelina, Arielle and Aiden.
Clint has presented a TEDx talk, told his story on US television, written for ‘Arthritis Matters’ magazine, reached a million people through ‘Body, Mind and Soul’ magazine and appeared as a keynote speaker (or MC) at many of the biggest heath conferences in Australia. Clint is the creator of the scientific-evidence-based ‘Paddison Program for Rheumatoid Arthritis’ which is being followed by RA patients in over 60 countries and has dramatically improved the lives of thousands of people with inflammatory arthritic conditions. Many of these people appear as guests on his popular podcast, telling their stories of life-changing improvements to further inspire others.
