I would like to know if anyone has done the food sensitivity test and by eliminating the foods that you are more sensitive to helped improving RA symptoms? Please share if anyone has any info.
I never had that done, but I've read about the leaky gut and its affect on autoimmune diseases. RA is one of them. They said for best results, eat a high fiber, less sugar, little to no processed foods and fresher fruits and veggies, and lean meats. I started 12/26/18 and have lost 18 pounds and have extremely minor flare ups that dont last long at all. This the best I have ever felt and my fatigue is almost completely gone. So it is a lifestyle change for me and I see that it has improved my overall health completely. I saw my Urologist and My Rheumatologist this week and they both were thrilled. Not saying it will help everyone, but it is life changing for me! I have the most severe crippling RA. You would never know it if you just met me. I only drink water, water with lemon, decaf green tea, and occasional coffee.
I had this done at a holistic dr and was not convinced the results were accurate. However, I have eliminated gluten, dairy, processed foods, processed sugar, grains, oils (except olive and coconut), and incorporated lots of fruits, vegetables, and extra water and this has helped immensely with pain and swelling!
