Ankylosing spondylitis is a kind of arthritis with puzzling symptoms all over the body. Its main symptom is back vertebrae fusing together; ankloysis is stiffening or fusion of a joint. To read Wikipedia you’d think it can only be treated with dangerous drugs that don’t work very well.
I recently learned from someone with the condition that it got much better after he cut out all refined carbohydrates, especially sugar, an idea he got from Dr. Bruce West. He felt better in three days. He can eat fruit, but not bread or soft drinks or desserts. He’s never tried eating more fermented foods; he barely knew what they were.
Is the idea spreading? I asked. No, he said. Curious, in this day of forums and patient-centered websites.
Going to have to try this for sure.. back has been killing me this past week along with the typical sacroilliac hip type pain on the left side. Last thing before stepping into Enbrel.. Hopefully one or the other works, I'm not covered for Remicade >.<
