What’s not here and what is…
This is not a cookbook. There are no claims of a cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis. And we won’t tell you that if you follow these tips, life with RA will be “easy.”
Instead, I hope that you will have some fun and find inspiration to do the best that you can to eat healthier. Meanwhile, I bet we’ll all learn a few things from each other. RA’ers are brilliant at learning to how to manage when things get difficult.
Why worry about nutrition?
It’s extremely important for RA’ers to eat as healthy as possible for several reasons. Both the disease and the medications for it can cause nutritional deficiencies. RA’ers are more likely to develop serious conditions like osteoporosis, anemia, and heart disease, all of which are treated in part by diet. Also, many foods are believed to have ingredients which fight inflammation, a primary enemy in Rheumatoid Arthritis.
