Had crazy making lower back pain from age 14(!) to 25 when finally my new therapist told me to go off dairy and give it a chance for only 3 weeks.i gave it a chance although my "diet" up to then was probably made out of up to 60% dairy products. after 3 weeks my back pain was COMPLETELY GONE! dairy sucks!!
Starting a few weeks ago I went on a diet ..eliminating sugars, cookies, candies, pop, breads...i noticed than my pains got alot less....for the last few days i have went off the diet and have been eating sugars and breads...MY PAIN IS BACK!!! worse than ever.... Tomorrow I'm going to cut out the sugars and carbs and start on the cider and baking soda...will let you know the results.
The dietary factors which most negatively impact Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis are coffee and caffeine, refined sugar and milk products. I've seen significant improvement in my patients who are willing to alter their diets alone. Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs and JMT treatment can greatly help, even alleviate the symptoms.
