There is increasing evidence that the main cause of rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic diseases is our poor diet and lifestyle choices. The sooner in life that we adopt a health promoting diet and lifestyle, the less likely it is that we will develop one of these diseases later in life. Also, many of these diseases can be treated and often reversed using the same health promoting diet and lifestyle. There’s so much evidence now that the best health promoting and disease prevention diet is a whole food plant-based diet (with minimal added salt, oil, and sugar), coupled with regular cardiovascular exercise, appropriate sunshine exposure, and adequate good quality sleep.

On a whole food plant-based diet/lifestyle there’s no counting calories, no portion restriction (eat as much as you want), and there’s no yo-yo dieting effect where you restrict and then binge and then repeat while watching your weight rise and fall accordingly. On a whole food plant-based diet, your body reaches a trim and healthy weight that suits its environment and is able to maintain that weight regardless of the quantity of food that you eat.

A whole food plant-based diet is an anti-inflammatory diet, a healing diet and a chronic disease prevention diet. If you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or another chronic inflammatory disease, I would urge you to study the whole food plant-based diet (with minimal added salt, oil and sugar) online and consider adopting it for a period of time (at least one month) to see if your symptoms calm down and your blood work returns towards normal. I’ll place links below to what I consider to be the best resources to get you started. Read more . . .
There are so many effective (non-pharmaceutical) treatments for rheumatoid (and osteo) arthritis, both old and new. In this post I would like to summarise a few of the most important of them in order to provide a useful starting point for anyone using intelligence, wisdom, historical precedence and research to find a cure for RA.
I’ve tried many of these treatments and potential cures myself over the years with good results and they form a major part of my own current rheumatoid arthritis cure. Read more . . .
I’ve learned an important lesson recently that may be useful in motivating other rheumatoid arthritis sufferers to persevere in their efforts to reverse their disease and attain an effective remission/cure.
If you’ve been fighting rheumatoid arthritis for some time, trying various different treatments, diets, and lifestyle changes without success (or without complete success), then you may need to try a new approach.
Alternatively, if you’ve had sustained success from time to time, using a particular approach but then regressed because you drifted away from that approach; it may be time to make a serious and extremely difficult emotional decision based on the question: “How much do I really want to be free from this disease?”.
