Kicking Her Rheumatoid Arthritis

Sherene had Rheumatoid Arthritis, but now she’s doing just fine. Here’s her story:
Dear Dr. Fuhrman,

Last August I had a telephone consult with you for my RA with a follow up 6 weeks later. I've been following the plan you gave me religiously since then. I've even come to enjoy the watercress in my morning smoothie and the daily juiced cruciferous greens.

My RA is in complete remission, all blood tests are normal and I have no joint pain at all. A great side effect is that my asthma has gone. I have not used any asthma meds since November and despite this being peak allergy season for me, my lung function tests are perfect.

I can't thank you enough for the changes to my health that your advice has made possible. This is the first time in my adult life that I have no systemic inflammation. No active RA, no iritis, no corneal rejection and no asthma. I didn't realize that a body could feel so good.

Many thanks for changing my life.

I have just recently been dianoged with RA. Just yesterday, Monday, Aug. 1, 2011 my RA doctor perscribed Hydroxycholoquine and Meloxicam. I came out of his office very sad...I don't want to take medication if I can help it. He said that my hands and feet are the worse. Is there anything I can try naturally before tying this medication?

Please tell me what I need to do and if I can get some help before starting this medication. Thank you for your response. I look forward to hearing from you. Adela Martinez

I was diagnosed with erosive RA in July. The only thing that Dr. had to offer me was a chemotherapy drug, with many side effects. I can not go that direction.

I have been a ovo/lacto vegetarian for 33 years. My current Dr. sites that as my problem and wants me to eat meat, butter, eggs, fish at every meal. This seems wrong to me, too.

I have been searching for an answer to my body's troubles for 3 years now. I take many supplements and eat healthfully, but my hands are quickly turning into claws.

Do you have any advice for me, a direction I can go to help heal my body? Thank you for your time!
