I now follow a gluton free diet, also gave up milk products and nightshade vegtables (eggplant, tomatoes,white potatoes and green and yellow peppers). I'm pain free but still get my Iinfusion of Remicaid. This all works for me. I'm fine, thank heavens!

Very interesting! A friend had told me months ago that her father-in-law drinks cherry juice to relieve symptoms of his RA. Also, since cherries reduce uric acid levels, they may also help relieve gout pain.
As Dan said, nothing to lose by trying.

I had heard that eating cherries may be beneficial, but had not thought about drinking cherry juice. Thanks!
