Curious…Food changes?

Hi, I have been reading a lot of the comments about all you amazing people! I just want each and Everyone to know, Each of You are seen, I See You and thankfully we are not alone. Community and Communication is healing and comforting to the soul. In our situation we need a lot of comfort. I have a question: Has anyone had to do a Gynormous Diet change due to the shifting symptoms of Lupus/arthritis? I was diagnosed with RA/Lupus in 2010. Things had been changing after having my 4th child (1984). But the symptoms continue to be added to my life with numerous visits to the Dr. It wasn’t until 2010 on a fluke visit for feet burning and toe numbness that the Dr noticed I had to use my left arm to lift my right arm for pain sake. She immediately requested a blood panel done and there it was…the Bain of my current existence. I hate medication and bring she/Dr couldn’t tell where this disease came so I could eliminate the symptoms by eliminating the cause; was mind boggling to her. I got the blank stare.😑 So, I did my own research into this dis-ease and discovered You Are What You Eat. I did a major diet change, and went to a mediterranean diet and the symptoms were drastically reduced. So I was just curious….Queen of my own Health

  1. Thank you for your kind words! You are also incredible and seen! You are so right, nutrition can make a huge difference when it comes to lupus ( Everyone's body is different so what works for one lupus warrior, may not necessarily work for another. One diet plan that some people have shared has helped them is the antiinflammatory diet: Glad to know the Mediterranean diet is working for you! Thanks for sharing with us.

    1. so glad that the Mediterranean diet is working for me. J don’t do dieting I just keep a food journal to track of the food I eat and how it affects my body. That has lead to a change in my eating habits and removal of foods that affect me negatively. ~Racquel~ team member
