Rheumatoid arthritis is thought to be one of the most painful conditions to suffer from.
The cure for this condition has not been officially cracked yet, and many sufferers are resigned to life taking very strong painkillers.
But one woman has managed to beat her arthritis with one simple change to her lifestyle. If you or someone you know suffers from the condition then this could be the answer you have been looking for.
Sarah Allen had been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for several years, at the young age of just 28.
She said at the time:
“I thought I was very healthy. I was young. I was a competitive triathlete. I believed I had a pretty good diet. So, I didn’t really understand why I was experiencing so much pain in my fingers and in my feet.”
“I had migrating pain, and a lot of tendonitis issues all throughout my body. It took the Western doctors a long time to diagnose me. It took about three years going to different doctors before they knew what was wrong.”
For someone this young to have to suffer from such a debilitating illness is very sad indeed, but luckily Sarah found a way through the pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is specifically categorized as experiencing excruciating pain in the hands and feet. It is especially complex as it is an autoimmune disease, one of the types of diseases doctors are still very much in the dark about.
After going down the regular avenues of trying the pharmaceutical drugs given to her by doctors, Sarah found a book which changed her life.
The Road Back: Rheumatoid Arthritis, its Cause and its Treatment was written by Dr. Thomas McPherson Brown and Henry Scammell who both place importance on diet in the proper cure for the pain of rheumatoid arthritis.
After reading the book, Sarah changed her life for the better. She says
“You said I should eliminate that out of my diet as well as processed foods and sugar. You also did a metabolic typing. I did a very thorough questionnaire about how I metabolize food, about my energy levels, and about the stress in my life.
Along with my blood type, I was given a very special protocol of which foods would help me heal… I did a lot of vegetable juicing, which really helped me. I juiced probably 48 ounces a day of green juice.
I also ate a lot of organic grass-fed beef, ostrich, bison, free-range chicken and raw dairy. You even recommended raw eggs and raw egg yolks. Because I was in Wisconsin, I found an organic farm close to me. I got most of my meat, raw milk and my eggs from there. I bought all my fresh vegetables from local farmers markets. I got to know area farmers and learn about their farming practices.”
Sarah now leads an active life and is able to work, and exercise, something she thought she was going to have to give up when she was at the worst with her disease.
The importance of diet in terms of degenerative diseases is still being explored, but stories like Sarah’s show that there is obviously a great benefit in changing your life in such a way for the better.
