Heather Thomas; she was doing so well too before she started with all the plastic surgery shite.

Kathleen Turner is a bloated figure these days too. She is in her sixties and facially hasnt changed much but has put on mountains of weight. Can't post photos as I am on my phone.

She has had Rheumatoid Arthritis for many years.

She's blaming the steroids,I imagine.

I knew a girl with  Rheumatoid Arthritis. She had it in her feet, ankles, knees, hands, you name it, and she was on steroids.

The poor girl was in constant pain and the weight gain caused by the steroids made her mobility suffer further.

 

Other medication, mainly painkillers over 25 or so years fucked her organs and ended up killing her at 55.

Really sad, she was a lovely woman.

 

It's a horrible thing Rheumatoid Arthritis, it's enough to age anyone.

My missus has RA and was told that she’d be all but disabled within 8 years and the only thing they could suggest was drugs for the rest of her life. 
 

She didn’t give up and didn’t want to take steroids for the rest of her life so really did her research, did an MSc and requalified as a nutritional therapist specialising in chronic conditions. She’s even had a research paper published in an international journal.
 

She’s made huge changes to diet and exercise avoiding inflammatory foods and those that cause her to have a reaction. It’s been 10 years and she’s fine, of course she has her days when she’s in pain but this largely as a result of something she’s eaten the day before. She astounds me with her determination and drive to find a solution. Meanwhile I’ve spent those 10 years reading about shit breakfasts on here.

Both my sister and I have it- she much more seriously than me, we're both on Methotrexate, but she has frequent steroid courses too (I've had a few, but only for a week at a time with about 12-18 month gaps in between). Have you got any links to what she's written, I'd be interested to read them? I find a low-carb diet much better than 'usual', but it can be difficult to stick to it. I've had to give up running due to wear and tear on my knee, but have found cycling and kettle bell exercises OK to do.

Tell you what mate, that's brilliant. Good on her and good luck to her.

I really hope she stays well and finds what she's looking for as I think that will help a lot of other people too.

 

Edit,

 

You're right about the breakfasts,  but they're sooooo niiiiice.

Sure I’ll ask her for more specific info and the best links as I don’t want to send you anything that’s not your right. I’ll also ask her to check the below in case I don’t have it right (she’s the expert).
 

Everyone is different so there isn’t a blanket solution but for her she’s found she reacts with most dairy (apart from feta which is fermented) as it’s the casein that’s the issue. She avoids nightshade vegetables most of the time, processed foods and a lot of carbs like pasta, bread etc. She also soaks lentils overnight to remove the pectins, in general She tries to eat well and organic where it matters.
 

Weirdly she was a pescatarian for 16 years but around 2 years ago started eating organic meat again after she got Lyme Disease - honestly she has the worst luck but that seems to have helped with her RA.
 

she has some recipes and more info on her website (mods - if this breaks any rules please remove it and I can ping a link via PM to those that ask). 
 

https://optimalhealthnutrition.co.uk/

 

shes actually doing a series of talks for NRAS (the rheumatoid arthritis charity) on nutrition and RA. It is a paid for unfortunately (£30) but I can find some info when she’s back from work later. 

 

https://nras.org.uk/event/nras-wellbeing-course-nutritional-therapy-and-ra/


Also while organic is good not every thing has to be this list is updated each year but a handy guide as it lists those that should defo be organic and those it doesn’t really matter.

Hope this helps and I’ll add anything she suggests to this thread.

 

edit - On the exercise front she goes low impact but the main thing is to keep moving and try and keep stress down as that’s a big trigger for her.
