Hi all, after someone in this site( sorry, I don't remember who) posted something on gut health and inflammation, I have been reading some on the subject. Then I read about juice fasting and how it relieves pain. Have been in a flare for 2 weeks with temp constantly on 100 or 101 C, with even my hip becoming stiff in the mornings. Nothing that my homeo gave was of any use. So started the juice fast om Monday. I do take soups too, so it is not just a juice fast. Mainly vegetable juices with no added sugar or salt. Surprise !!! My pains have almost vanished. I did feel a bit weak the first day, but now I feel fresh, have no fever and most importantly, no joint pains at all.
As you all are aware, I cannot take any allopathic drugs for RA, as it affects my platelets. ( I have ITP too). So this diet is doing wonders for me. Thought of sharing it with you all.
