I have just read a letter from a reader in a magazine who was diognosed with RA in her hands which were swollen and painful. She refused any meds as she read that they may cause liver and kidney problems and she felt that she may be swopping one problem for another. After reading up about foods etc, she decided to cut out bread, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, red meat and fruit juices. The long and the short of it was this made hardly any difference at all.
Her local health store recommended Montmorency cherries which they sold in a capsule form. She says that after a few weeks of taking these, the inflammation in her hands had gone and her doctor discharged her as a patient and she is now free of RA. She still takes these capsules and cuts down on all the above foods.
Does anyone have any comments on this, or experience of this happening ?
