Am I the only one who is finding all these posts about "curing" and "reversing" RA or even improving it are bit strange. I'm Celiac and its so not a life style choice, as it is vital to observe to avoid stomach issues. But most of all what concerns me is the risk of serious health complications that can happen if RA is not properly controlled. The NHS spends squillions on medications that improve and protect our health, they may not work for all but having RA carries serious cardiovascular risks in my case it was Pulmonary Embolisms and a DVT since then a few Superficial Thrombosis. I dread to think what might have happened had I not being taking RA medications. So please do not think me rude but you may do as you wish, and follow whatever diet you want; cook your food or not; eat bread or not. But Me ? I'm going to keep on taking the Leflodamide, Thyroxine and get the 3 months B12 jabs, swallow the Vit D capsules and scoff as much chocolate and cheese as I can 'cos life has to have some pleasure.
And I'm going dancing tonight in gold sandals because I feel great and thats down to great consultants, (RA and Maemo) a great GP, good medications and a will to live each day looking forward and not obsessing about what is for tea- gf free pasta and garlic pesto. xx
If anyone finds this offensive I'm sorry and it is just how I feel.
