(Staten Island, NY)
I was diagnosed with RA about 6 years ago. Of course I was prescribed the usual methotrexate which has been increased every year. After being prescribed 8 pills once a week I started experiencing extreme side effects to the medicine. When I consulted my doctor, he told me never to be out in the sun and I would not experience the side effects.
I decided to be my own best advocate and I went to a nutritionist. I am now symptoms free and methotrexate free for about one year. The secret, gluetin. I eliminated this out of my diet, started juicing every day and stopped my medicine after two months without pain. I never told my doctor, because he told me a nutritionist could not help me. But if anyone out there is brave enough to try to cut gluetin out of their diet, you will be happily suprised. Try it what do you have to loose. No more swelling, no more nights up in excruciating pain, no more medicine. Any questions please blog me. I want everyone to have a chance at being pain free.
