  • Intro/ Summary:

    Through his personal journey with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Clint Paddison knows only too well just how debilitating and challenging RA can be. This led him to develop "The Paddison Program", a new, and somewhat controversial approach that challenges the status-quo of accepted evidence in complementary medicine.

    Following his own diagnosis he found himself confined to his bed and robbed of his usual physically active lifestyle. Clint immersed himself in RA research and through his own personal trial and error, he developed protocols that helped reverse his disease. The results are nothing short of incredible, and he's gone on to teach thousands of other's his methods and help them too, gain control over this degenerative condition.

  • If you like researching 'the sciencey bits' 🤓 or prefer to leave that to your physicians, here's references that may interest:

    .

    Studies on Fat & Gut Inflammation

    Animal model shows that a consumption of a high-fat diet, by promoting changes in host bile acid composition, reduces the density of microfora and creates an inflammatory environment in the small intestine:

    🤓 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/227...

    increase gut permeability:

    🤓 nutritionandmetabolism.biom...

    🤓 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articl...

    🤓 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/837...

    which results in dysbiosis that can alter the immune system:

    🤓 nature.com/nature/journal/v...

    .

    Of all fats measured in animal models, the worst are unsaturated fats (oils) – authors of one study commented that “USF (corn oil/linoleic acid) by itself results in dysregulation of intestinal tight junction integrity leading to increased gut permeability”:

    🤓 onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi...

    .

    Following from this, in human studies, common medium chain fatty acids (found in several vegetable fats and dairy products) cause a “rapid increase in epithelial permeability” in humans:

    🤓 jpet.aspetjournals.org/cont...

    even though authors confess that the mechanism of action is largely unknown.

    .

    Note also that inflammation itself causes more intestinal permeability:

    🤓 ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/192...

    so there is a cascade-like effect from inflammation itself which self-perpetuates the disease.

    .

    So for healing to occur inflammation must always be kept at a minimum.

  • Hi Kai,

    I have a big problem with Clint Paddison's program and I would like to get your thoughts on it?

    Clint's programme is based on a Plant Based Diet, which I agree is very effective at reducing inflammation, but it is also extremely hard to get sufficient levels of Collagen, Glutamine and Vitamin K2 in a Plant Based Diet.

    People suffering with RA often have joint damage. Collagen in their diet can help repair some of this damage when inflammation around the joints starts to die down. We know for a fact that Collagen can repair bone erosions and it can also help the body regrow or heal damaged cartilage and tendons.

    Surely a predominantly Plant Based diet with some animal proteins containing Collagen would be the best dietary approach for trying to reverse Rheumatoid Arthritis?

    Clint also talks about oils and fats as being inflammatory, but we also know that this is not true.

    Some processed oils and fats are definitely inflammatory, but MCT, XCT and Omega 3 and 6 oils in a sensible equal ratio are not inflammatory.

    People with RA already tend to be deficient in nutrients. I am really concerned that persuading someone to switch to a Plant Based Diet could make them even more deficient in certain nutrients that you can only get from eating meat.

    I am super sceptical over the long term effectiveness of Paddison's programme.

    To me it feels no different to medication taken for RA. Yes, there's no doubt that medication and Paddison's programme will reduce inflammation in the blood and make people feel better, but does it really heal the underlying cause creating the inflammation? I don't think it does...

    I would be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

  • Thank you kindly for asking, Allsopp. 🙏

    Unfortunately, I haven't science ⚗ 🔬 or medical 💉 💊 background, therefore any answer I could research for you (Collagen, Glutamine, Vitamin K2, etc.) would merely be mouthing the plant-based folks I learn from. 😔

    Perhaps, if you presented these queries to the plant-based scientists/ medical folks directly, they could address your most excellent concerns? 🤔

    _____

    Merely for clarification, I share 🆓 information with folks who are genuinely curious/ interested in diet/ lifestyle to manage their RA/ autoimmune illnesses — not persuading anyone "switch to" P-BD/L. 😳

    [I'm dietarily agnostic (& do what works for me) with full understanding each of us has our own unique biochemical systems, conditions, etc. (variations on a theme 🎶 ) & must figure out for ourselves what works best for us. 👍 ]

    Amusingly, the various approaches — variations-on-a-theme roadmaps 🗺 — at times appear to engage in some sort of "religious wars" ⚔ amongst 'n betwixt themselves. 😳 😂 🙃 Some step back to let the 'big brains' 🤓 work it out, some like to participate 'in the brawl' . . . 😯 🙃 😆

    "Mucosal Lining: Nutrients are absorbed in the mucosal lining which also acts as protective gut barrier. A deplted mucosal lining leads to a state of malnutrition in RA patients [17] and the nutritional status and RA severity are inversely related."

    👉 "ARE THERE OTHER BENEFITS? *

    It is now well established that RA is associated with increases in both morbidity and mortality compared with the general population. RA increases the risk of cardiovascular (CV) mortality by up to 50% compared with the general population160 161 162 Plant-based diets have been associated with lowering overall and ischemic heart disease mortality163 Furthermore, a plant based diet have also been associated with sustainable weight management164 reducing medication needs ; lowering the risk for most chronic diseases ; decreasing the incidence and severity of high-risk conditions, including obesity , hypertension 171, hyperlipidemia and hyperglycemia172, and even possibly reversing advanced coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes 175"
