Diet and Rheumatoid Arthritis

A big part of challenging Rheumatoid Arthritis is changing what you eat.  What you eat affects how you will feel with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Are you ready to make a change in your lifestyle for the better?

Gone were the days of sugary drinks and high fat meals. I also became allergic to fried foods and anything that contained gluten, dairy or soy. I say allergic because I knew that fried foods would have some bad repercussions after and it was not something that I wanted.

Having Rheumatoid Arthritis, my body has become more intolerable to gluten. Gluten intolerance means your body has a hard time digesting gluten. It is shown that gluten intolerance is shown to lead to many health conditions including aching joints, muscle cramps, hair loss, mouth ulcers, loss of appetite, seizures, abdominal pain, nausea, diabetes and even intestinal cancer.

It took some time getting used to a gluten free, dairy free, egg free and soy free out of my diet and I concentrated more on the foods that I could eat and stayed positive about it.

After 30 days of being gluten free, dairy free, egg free and soy free I began to notice a huge difference. My joint pain was almost nonexistent. I’m able to move about with ease and I am back to training again.
