I have been drinking lots of organic vegetable and fruit juices rich with Antioxidants to help with my chronic pain. Teas as well, in the place of water. It seemed to work for a little while. Even the swelling went down!
Unfortunately, now all the sudden, I'm flaring up again. My fingers are red and swollen (both hands, not just the left.) Neck burning, pain in my left arm again. All the crappy stuff!
I agree that the diet change does help, but it's obvious (at least in my case) that it settles the symptoms. It may not put me into remission for good but at least settle my symptoms and has seemed to make my tolerable days even better. So I'm giong to continue in hopes for more tolerable days to come.
Maureen, I'm glad that the diet change has put you into a long running remission! I sincerley hope you have many more days of freedom from the pain.
Congrats to you!
