After being diagnosed with RA and after a thorough research on treatment options, decided to give the less toxic options first priority. Started with AIP (autoimmune paleo diet). When starting my symptoms were really bad. The strict diet was very hard to maintain and my symptoms got worse before they started to get better. After about three months I started to see changes. The terrible fatigue was gone and the brain fog had lifted. My joints felt better and I can now do daily walks with my dog, which was not possible before because of knee pain. Now I have recently added Minocycline to ensure that the cause of my RA is not a mycoplasma infection ( had an untreated mycoplasma lung infection just before the onset of my RA). I am also starting to take LDN (low dose naltroxene), as I have understood that it helps to normalize the immunesystem as well as help with pain. Additionally taking supportive vitamines and supplements. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the possitive development will continue.
