Things to avoid!

I can emphasize with everyone! I have avoided sugar, and more sugar! I have Taken Omega 3' big time and COQ 10, and use NONA, (at wholefoods), it tastes terrible, but there are so many minerals and other, it is amazing. I MUST walk at least 1 mile a day, more like 2! Hug a teddy bear and allow your self a good nap. Most of all, pray without ceasing. Donna

Donna,

I'm glad you can report some success with your avoidance of sugar, and taking O-3, Co-Q10, and your Nona Juice.

However, I have been relatively sugar-free since I'm 17 yrs old, have taken 12 supplements daily for over 12 yrs, including Co-Q10, Flax seed oil (O-3), vitamins, minerals, selenium, calcium, you name it! I got RA ANYWAY!!

Was a regular exerciser (aerobics) 3x a week, and I got RA ANYWAY!

Pray and pray and pray. That is what most of us need, but what we need more than a nap is a CURE! Please take the new poll I just posted under "Whining about RA"?

THANKS, and good luck to you. God Bless!

I also am a healthy eater only chicken and fish and i take my vitamins and i also excercised a few times a week . I used to do step classes and lots of other classes when i was younger but as i got older i use the treadmill the most. Needless to say i too have R.A and have just had my first knee surgery! I was very upset at first cuz i thought i was being healthy and i still got sick! Life is definetly no picnic!

You go, girl! At what point do we just admit that getting RA may be just "bad luck"? My grandfather had it at age 50. We are the only two in the entire family who got it....bad luck.

I hear you loud and clear. I will be undergoing complete knee replacement soon, any advice you can give me is appreciated. How did it go for you?
