Rhumathoid Arthritis

7 posts in this topic

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF SOMEONE GOT RID OF RHUMATHOID ARTHRITIS SINCE GOING ON GLUTEN FREE DIET. I MEAN COMPLETELY HEAL, NO SYMPTOMS ANYMORE. I AM ASKING THIS QUESTION BECAUSE MY BOSS HAVE THAT DISEASE AND MY PHARMACIST TOLD ME THAT IT WAS AN INCURABLE ILLNESS.

SOUNDS LIKE DEJA VU HEY...

SO IF SOMEONE CAN TESTIMONY HE COMPLETELY HEAL HIS ARTHRITIS WITH gluten-free DIET, MAY BE IT COULD CONVINCED HER TO GO ON THIS DIET.

I KNOW THAT THERE IS A LINK BETWEEN GLUTEN AND RHMATHOID ARTHRITIS LIKE OTHER DISEASE BUT IS IT CURABLE?

TANK YOU FOR ANY ANSWER OR TESTIMONY.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. It is not curable by any special diet. Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Disease will sometimes kick it into gear, but it does not cause it. Special diets can alleviate the symptoms, but will not cure it.

Dr. Mercola has had success with RA when people have gone on the diet he recommends. You can get to his free newsletter that talks about it at www.mercola.com In the search box typr in Rheumatoid arthritis and you will get a lot of links to articles about it. It can for sure be helped by diet.

Hope this helps,

Completely heal, no, I don't think so. Reforming bone and cartilage that has been broken down by the immune system is nothing at all like reforming damaged villi in a part of the body that sees more repair work naturally. It would make sense, to me, however, that going on a gluten-free diet (IF you are also gluten intolerant) could help if your body is reacting to gluten with an exagerrated immune response (hence inflammation and the rest of the chemicals that go with it) throughout your entire system. Reducing that immune response would reduce the activity of the RA. (Many RA type drugs suppress the immune system.) Whether that would get you into remission, prevent any worsening, or cause actual symptom improvement probably depends on the person.

(I'm no expert here, this is just an educated guess. :-) )

I WANTED TO SAY TANK YOU FOR THOSES WHO ANSWERD ME. YOU WERE RIGHT ABOUT SAYING THERE WAS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSES 2 DISEASES. I'VE JUST FOUND SOMETHING PRETTY INTERESTING ABOUT IT. IT TALK'S ABOUT CELIAC DISEASE, RHEUMATHOID ARTHRITIS AND MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS (MS)...THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM.

One note- I have a cousin with RA and she (with the help of her doctor) has been able to control it mostly through diet and exercise, BUT this is a very special process.. and if she misses a single workout she is set back weeks before she can regain the pain free state.
