How Laura Has Resolved Her RA Inflammation Without Drugs

How Laura Has Resolved Her RA Inflammation Without Drugs

July 14, 2019

 

We discuss how:

 

  • Laura started having symptoms of RA 5 years ago at 24
  • Three years later, after having her daughter, she had a massive flare-up
  • Having had stomach problems since she was 16, she made the connection between her symptoms and diet although doctors were of different advise
  • She researched and found about Dr. McDougall and Dr. Greger early on, and that helped reduce the symptoms in the early stages
  • After the RA diagnosis (seropositive RA with elevated anti CCP) and with a rheumatoid factor of about 300, methotrexate and sulfasalazine were suggested as a therapy
  • Antibiotics for a bladder infection worsened the situation, and a specific restaurant meal exacerbated her symptoms, leading her to reconsider her diet once again
  • After additional research Laura found about the Paddison Program and started it immediately with astonishingly good results
  • Now she is almost completely pain-free with CRP under 1, without taking methotrexate or other drugs
  • Bykram Yoga also is proving to be a crucial factor in her recovery
