If you are a regular reader, you know how to banish the symptoms of RA without drugs, using food alone. (See other articles on this site or go to the summary below.)

It has now been almost exactly 20 years since I was diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. The doctor taking my blood and listening to my symptoms looked at me with pity, which, at that time, alarmed me more than the prospect of the disease. I was expected to decline rapidly, a wheelchair and nursing home […]
