I Rec'd this info from a health professional and am sharing it. You choose to take this info anyway you want or ignore.
I have been on a plant based/raw diet for over a yr and have lowered most of the meds with approval from my RA Dr and eliminated the Humira since March 2018, also w approval from Dr. Most people don't want to chg their diet but it wasn't hard for me. And I'm not perfect, I eat chicken or fish if I go out w friends for meals.
I play dbls tennis twice a week and swing dance once a week. I Have little or no pain related to RA.
Over the last several years I have listened to multiple physicians at conferences tell
their stories of "curing" themselves of autoimmune illness with whole food plant based
diets (lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, MS, etc.). Haven't had a chance to interview Monica
Aggarwal, MD but she is a plant-based cardiologist who heard recently at a conference
who did it. Here story is inspiring. It's not only about getting off of offending foods (dairy,
meats, eggs, wheat, junk carbs etc.) and eating more nutrient dense plant foods but
it's also about getting your life under control stress wise. Here is Dr. Aggarwal's inspiring
story as well as Erika Cline's story a young 28 year old with severe rheumatoid arthritis,
brain fog, numbness, dizziness, anemia and chronic fatigue who reversed her rheumatoid
arthritis in a 1-2 year period.
But we've known doing fasting then proceeding to a low allergy plant based (vegan)
diet has reversed RA symptoms for years. You can apply this same approach to any
autoimmune illness and for that matter any chronic pain syndrome, especially if related to joints.
