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.
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.
