I used to post here a lot, but stopped posting a while back because the angry mob tends to come out in force when I post.
Just wanted to let you know that yesterday my wife was officially told she's in remission. She has been pain free for about a year now.
We told the Rheumatologist about all the hard work and research we had put into beating RA, but naturally they weren't interested and were clearly very sceptical.
I just wanted to share this here for anyone that is newly diagnosed with RA or working hard to get rid of this horrible disease.
I used to cry everyday seeing my wife in pain. It killed me. We thought our life was over. Then we both went deep down the rabbit hole of learning about the disease, learning about the immune system, learning about how to influence certain processes in the body. Learning about how to influence the way the immune system behaves. After a lot of trial and error she started to feel a little better everyday. Now she has no symptoms. She hasn't had symptoms for a long time.
You CAN make it go away. Research diet, research stress management, research mental health, research all the things that can stress out your immune system and cut those things out of your life. It's not easy, but you can do it!!!
Two years ago my wife could barely walk. Her feet hurt so much in the mornings that she would cry driving to work everyday because it hurt her to push down on the pedals. She struggled to grip the gear stick.
Your doctors will tell you that diet and lifestyle will have no impact on your disease. They are dinosaurs. Don't listen to them.
Do your own research. You can beat this. Here is a good place to start:
