Has Anyone Tried The AutoImmune Protocol For Their RA?

Has Anyone Tried The AutoImmune Protocol For Their RA?

I have recently been diagnosed with RA and am taking the nutritional pathway first called the "Paleo Auto Immune Prorocol" that uses nutrition to fight the inflammation and get the body back functioning as it should. Has anyone done this ? I am feeling very hopeful but it's early days.

Newly Diagnosed With RA. Am Interested In Role Of Nutrition As Cause And/or Treatment. Anyone With Info Or Suggestions?

Newly Diagnosed With RA. Am Interested In Role Of Nutrition As Cause And/or Treatment. Anyone With Info Or Suggestions?

I was just recently diagnosed with RA -- RF negative but high anti-CCPs and history of tendinitis, etc. I'm curious about the role of nutritition in the development of RA and as a possible treatment. I have an upcoming appointment with a nutritionist/wellness doctor. I've had five low doses of methotrexate but feel worse than before I was diagnosed. Has anyone had success managing RA solely through nutrition?

Quercetin With Bromelain To Reduce C-Reactive Protein

Quercetin With Bromelain To Reduce C-Reactive Protein

Just wanted to share that my C-Reactive Protein, a marker for inflammation, went from 26 to 5 in two weeks after supplementing with Quercetin with Bromelain. Anything over 10 is considered high. I also feel a lot better. I highly recommend it.

Does Anyone Take Vitamin D? If So, How Much?

Does Anyone Take Vitamin D? If So, How Much?

I see so many people on this site saying that they have less RA symptoms in the summer. If Vitamin D is the main healing factor in the sun, it seems logical that Vitamin D in the winter might give us the same result...

I have been on 50,000IU's for about a year now. Prednisone and low vitamin D messed my bones up causing osteomalacia and I have had 10 fractures in my pelvic area. I have been in and out of the… read more

Has Anyone Suffered From Any Type Of Numbness In Your Hands, Feets, Legs Or Hands?

Has Anyone Suffered From Any Type Of Numbness In Your Hands, Feets, Legs Or Hands?

My left foot and leg have been numb since last Monday. Now my fingers on my left hand are numb and my right foot and leg are beginning to feel the same way. I had a cortisone shot like 2 weeks ago because I had been suffering so bad. It took about a week for me to feel better then this numbness kicked in. I'm not sure if there's any correlation between the two or not. I called and left a message for my Rheumatologist on Friday...their office was closed. They called me back saying to reach out to… read more

Best Foods

My 81 year old mum has RA, she hardly eats. She is weak and in a lot of pain and discomfort. She is also depressed. She is housebound and immobile as she also has bad osteoarthritis in her knee but is not strong enough for a knee replacement.
How can I get her to eat? What are the best foods? Which protein drinks etc are safe? Soups? Where do I start? She won't see a Dr about it at the moment but needs to eat well.

Desert Rose is giving you good advise. Funny enough, Carnation Instant Breakfast is well balanced and equivalent to many other more expensive supplements if you read the labels! Only difference can… read more
