I just read your post and I hope I can help you. I also went gluten free alone, and I didn't see a large difference, however, when I eliminated gluten and dairy together it made a huge difference. I no longer eat those, and try to stay away from sugar, pre packaged food, and other unhealthy foods. I also try to eat only organic fruits and veggies. I take 2 grams of fish oil and a whole food multivitamin daily, and receive acupuncture about once a month. It didn't take long before starting this new lifestyle to feel the best I ever have! Now, after a year of doing this I am RA free. I had aches and pains everywhere, and now they are gone!! Check out the book "Food That Grows". It's a cook book/ how to eat right book by 2 natropathic doctors. I hope this helps you. Changing your lifestyle is so much better than relying on toxic drugs. As many others mentioned, my rheumatologist thought I was crazy for for doing this too.....but, it really is true, you are what you eat!!!View Thread
