Hello,

I was seeing a physical therapist who stated that he has had RA patient that cured their RA with a complete diet change - a cut of all inflammatory foods - and supplemented with inflammatory fighting supplements and gut healing supplements, such as pro-biotics and pre-biotics.

He said the damage that was done was permanent, but it halted the progression of the disease, but required a complte and permanent change of eating patterns.

I have read various places online where people post similar success, but have never had a doctor tell me this. 

Has anyone tried managing their RA through diet and/or supplements and what results did you have? 

I've only tried once before in the past before I was diagnosed and it just added to my misery because I was in pain from my undiagnosed RA and I couldn't at least eat something tasty to cope with the situation. People have recommended going vegan to me too, but it seems to hard and I don't know if it'd be beneficial.

Thanks in advance for any replies!

Hello everyone,

How are you doing? Have you seen this older discussion? emoticon cute

What do you think? Have you tried to control your rheumatoid arthritis through diet? Has it worked for you? Have you heard of any diets that are beneficial for RA? Do you have any advice or tips to share?

Haven’t tried diet cuz I have a hard time eating. I know, what a shame but it is as hard to gain weight as it is for people who want to lose weight. I use my CBD which I have used for 3 years and it helps a lot. Some days are better than others. Praying everyone stays healthy.

@rtr097u1 I also heard somewhere that cutting out dairy is good for RA. Has anyone else heard of this? Are there foods we should be avoiding?
