Not too much to report other than I have been good with eating a very safe diet and I can feel that my flare is getting better. The first thing I do upon waking, is slowly try and make a fist and I know immediately!
I am so happy that I started this blog and I am happy that I took a chance in posting it on the Arthritis Society message boards. I've received lots of words of encouragement and lots of other people who are considering giving this type of method a try.
I mean, what do you have to lose? If you were diagnosed with a chronic disease that basically had no known cure, would you not want to try to help yourself naturally instead of pumping drugs into your body to mask the problem?
I am in Fitness and I coach clients everyday on the importance of putting only good, nutrient rich foods in their bodies for optimal health. Whether you have disease or illness or you seem to be pretty healthy- your body deserves to be treated like a temple. Feed it great nutritious foods and it will be good to you.
How many people do you know that complain of any of the following: bloated stomach, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel, migraines & headaches, eczema etc etc. Food plays a major role in all of these. We have the power and the tools to investigate and eliminate the offending foods!
All I now right now is when I started the elimination diet- after a few days of feeling bad, my hands & feet had not felt better in years. My husband pointed out to me that I was using a can opener the other morning. I hadn't been able to do that in years.
It's only a matter of time before I feel that good again!
