I have been working on sending my RA into remission for 3 and half years now. I gave up my drugs 3 and half years ago to go on the ALCAT rotation diet.  I spent 2 and half years on the rotation diet.  I gave it up because I found that the test would show a really bad response if you got tested in a week under stress and that my body in particulars food intolerances could easily change.  It was becoming quite stressful after 2 and half years.  I was doing so well for 6 months, I do follow more a paleo type diet but I am having a terrible flare up this winter, sick little boy with asthma, big changes in life separation etc.

 My question is once you heal your gut if you have times in your life with a bit of stress will you not get inflammation from the arthritis? or are you always prone to it.  I find my body is so sensitive that if I have a few weeks of stress, even though I meditate and pull myself back in line think positive again.  The effects of stress impact my digestion for months causing sensitive's and inflammation. Yet other times on this journey I have gone through times of hardly no inflammation and food intolerances thinking I have healed my gut.  I know Barbara you once did tell me I had the worst sensitive's you have come across so I guess I am going to take a little longer to heal than some people.  Thanks Amanda

Hi Amanda, I'm a newbie as they say but loved reading your post. You are clearly working your socks off to beat RA and I'm sure you'll get there soon.
I, like you think stress is a big factor, all my life I e been aware I don't handle stress (mainly work or people type) very well. I remember reading something on a traditional Chinese medicine article (TCM ) that not handlling stress well is a symptom of one of your organs being out of balance. Now I know little about TCM but I thought it was an interesting concept and one I chalked up on my list to do in my quest to cure myself. From what little I understand of TCM there does seem to be some truth in it. A basic example is a sign of alcoholism is weak heart organ ( not really a weak heart) this shows as a red swollen nose. Also I do believe in accupincture and meridian lines for aromatherapy etc.
I do hope you find the answer to your question. I have used reiki myself - takes a bit of practice to do yo yourself n you have to be attuned but very relaxing and healing. Also, I am using a free demo by holysync to help me drop into deep meditation- check out on the Internet. hope that helps.
If you get chance I would love you to read my introduction post.
Health and happiness
Steph

Hi Steph

Yes Chinese acupuncture and medicine works very well on me its my saviour.  I just finished a course called Genome Healing based on Quantum Physics its about rebalancing every organ and cell both the masculine and feminine.  Just finished a passive detox over several months with a wonderful chinese healer I see.  Inflammation is disappearing in my hand and wrists nearly normal, my body is taking a lot of food.  Back on track - released emotions of fear of working again and just started applying for jobs.  I swear releasing emotions - releases inflammation along with good food and lots of happy thoughts.  Now the trick if something stressful comes along I do not have the luxury of it must turn it around to something positive. Good luck in your healing x

Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects your joints, causing pain and stiffness. It’s by far the most common form of joint disease, affecting people all over the world and at least 8 million people in the UK. A joint is where two or more bones meet. The joint allows your bones to move freely.
