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.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
