It seems to me that all chronic diseases have a common cause which develops over many years, starting in our childhood or perhaps even before we were born, and this chronic cause is primarily brought about by the choice of foods and drinks that we put into our mouths i.e. the Standard UK (SUK) diet.

Arthritis Cure - for Rheumatoid Arthritis Sufferers and their Carers
There's every reason for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers to be optimistic and I believe that permanent remission i.e. 'cure' is already achievable through dietary and other lifesyle changes. Learn more about rheumatoid arthritis causes, treatments and potential cures as I share what I've experienced and learned from a four decade struggle with RA. (I've recently broadened the scope of my blog to include all chronic diseases since they share many of the same causes and drivers.)
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 searching to find a cure for RA.
Although every case of RA and every person is different, any one (or combination) of these approaches may be very effective for you and are a great place to start your recovery. This is particularly true if you are in the early stages of your RA or if your disease is still fairly mild. 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?”.

I wish, twenty or thirty (or preferably forty) years ago, someone had impressed upon me the importance of health and the implications of chronic disease. I wish I could have learned and absorbed a few simple lifestyle principles and made certain choices that would have enabled me to avoid developing rheumatoid arthritis. I’ve since learned many of these principles the hard way and I am living by them, and they are helping me to recover (again) from a thirty-five year struggle with severe chronic RA. These same principles could be used by anyone to help them avoid (or at least significantly postpone) the development of RA and many other chronic diseases. Read more . . .
