Supplement information:

❤️ There's a JIA Parents forum (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) healthunlocked.com/jia that may place your earlier life experience in a context, Cheyennesheppard. 🤔

.

❤️ There's video (Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis for 21+ Years [Personal Story]) of a young lady named Jenn 👩🏻 at this post: 13 Bite-Size Thoughts for Autoimmuners -- Newly Diagnosed (or Not) (towards bottom of page): healthunlocked.com/ra-warri... , who may provide some practical ideas for you in her 21+ years of living with RA. 👍

And, there's 2 other JIA stories that may be of interest to you:

❤️ Cole's mum (Christine) talks about improving Cole's JIA in her blog Cole's Success Story ( naturalcurejia.org ) & video: naturalcurejia.org/podcast-...

They're also on Facebook at ReverseJIA: facebook.com/pg/Reversejia-...

These are JIA experiences (that I'm aware of) that may help 'place in a context' your earlier RA experiences, CS, as well as showing there's 'abundant hope' & practical ways to help manage RA throughout our lives. 👍 🙏 ☺️

Katy's own words best tell her JIA story (in 15 minutes):

Katy's Inspirational Progress Against Lifelong Rheumatoid Arthritis:

.

.

👶 Katy was diagnosed with JIA at 10 months old

👱‍♀️ She has battled with her condition for 26 years

↩️ After starting the Paddison Program she has turned her condition around

💊 She now needs only a fraction of the drugs she was taking

🌅 She wakes up with no morning stiffness

📆 Improvements began within 3 days of the Program

🔥 Bikram Yoga is restoring increased functionality to her affected joints

.

This is the 📖 passage Katy reads (Jeremiah 29 biblegateway.com/passage/?s... ) that sent chills down her spine giving her hope & finally became her reality:'

"12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future . . . "

"Genes load the gun, lifestyle/ environment pull the trigger"

”Your genes are NOT your fate"

(Additional thoughts for RA-ers/ Autoimmuners of all ages.)

[Originally posted at: ‘Test to find out if my daughter may be pre disposed to RA?’ ( healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... )]

.

5minutespeace & bpeal1 might you kindly consider Katy ( healthunlocked.com/jia/post... ), Cole, Jenn, & Joseph’s ( healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... ) experience? 🤔

Might you consider connecting with Cole’s mum, Christine 👩‍👦 ( naturalcurejia.org/ )? 🤔

My simple layman’s understanding is "genes load the gun, lifestyle/ environment pull the trigger".

.

bernese1225, there are multiple tests ( healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... ) interpreted by astute, skilled rheumatologist that may be able to reveal if autoimmune diseases are beginning to reveal themselves (emerge) in your daughter. (Flickers of autoimmune flame can begin to show signs of ‘activity’ years before disease starts manifesting outwardly via pain & other symptoms.)

Kindly, please 🙏 understand, ”your genes are NOT your fate" ( ted.com/talks/dean_ornish_s... ).

(Genes/ DNA are not destiny. 😌 )

There’s much you daughter can do to side step/ avoid "pulling the trigger", if her genetic gun is already pre-loaded with RA, diabetes, hypo/ hyper-thyroid, or whatever cluster of autoimmune diseases her genes may be holding.

Wishing you each, the very best for yourselves & your beloved girls. 👶 👧 🧒 👱‍♀️ 🧑

😌 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞
