My RA is much better if I completely avoid sugars (processed or artificial) and use only healthy fats (EVOO, flax oil, walnut oils). It makes a huge difference for me!

Jessica, I hope that cutting the gluten helps you. I have Sero-Negative RA (does not show up with normal blood tests. Being gluten free helps reduce flare ups and makes them more tolerable. RA is often associated with Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance.

Thanks! She did not mention dairy but I'm not allowed sugar or artificial sugar. No preservatives. Really no artificial anything. I'll ask her about the dairy.

Welcome, Jessica!

Did your ND also mention that dairy and sugar--especially sugar--contributes to inflammation, which increases pain? Also, I have a friend who had terrible pain throughout her body. It was suggested to her to topically rub in caster oil and internally do high omega fish oil. Within a couple of months, she was able to sleep and drive again.

Blessings and prayers sent to you as you search for a program that is good for you!

I don't have RA but I do have SLE and have found that when I took out most grains that I did not have the pain that I had before and when I do eat some gluten then my lupus pain comes back. So do it for about four weeks or more and see how you feel.

Oh and Hi and welcome to the team.;

Hey there. I'm Jessica and I just got diagnosed with RA (rheumatoid arthritis) and was told by my Naturopath that avoiding gluten would greatly reduce my symptoms. I am cutting out gluten tomorrow. Heres hoping!! Anyone out there have RA and reaping the benefits of gluten free living? Or know of someone who's RA symptoms have decreased? Thanks :)
