I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis years ago and suffered from it for many years. It wasn't until I changed my diet that I noticed remarkable improvement, so much so that I started a blog that is listed here in wellsphere:
I have. When I was diagnosed with Sero negative arthritis, which is a form of RA i decided to change my diet radically. My doctor had mentioned that processed foods and animal products may agrivate my symptoms so I did some research. Since that time I became Vegan and have eliminated sugar and wheat products from my diet. I have noticed that the few times that I have allowed myself the "luxurary" of something sweet it has caused a flare, so I don't do that anymore, it's not worth it! I am very happy as a Vegan. It has been 8 months and I feel great and don't miss the foods that I have eliminated- and I definitely don't miss the pain and the swollen joints!
So glad to hear you're feeling better! I wish more people would give diet a chance, like you did, to see what it can do for them. My hope is that others will read about our overall improvement and give diet a chance.
