Try ditching the sugars in the fruits....even those could be aggravating the issues. Add some other cho from other sources that are not sugar or gluten.

The ACV could help too...cleans up the gut and can also help with any calcium deposits...take it on an empty stomach first thing AM and right before bed....otherwise if you take it with food it will be used for digestive purposes.

Don't get sold on the whole "it's all in your genetics" crap.....my bro in law had "arthritis"/tendoitis/carpal tunnel in his wrist they wanted to operate on....he gave up wheat and it all went away....funny.....and yes, beer is wheat....

RA- Flares from dairy and of course, wheat. Asymptomatic if the diet is 100%.

Ok,

Other than the bi weekly cheat days I have been grain dairy legume free for almost a year. I do tend to go ape shit on the cheat days so maybe that has been enough. I have cut all cheat days, and will see what happens.

Thanks for all the feedback.

Kevin-

I'd suspect that bi-weekly cheat days are easily enough to bring on issues if you are sensitive. Those foods are still a regular part of your diet, albeit perhaps a smaller part than previously.

I've seen numerous issues not clear up in folks until the cheats are almost nil....unfortunately.

That is extreemly encouraging as getting to 100% is a piece of cake.
(Pun intended)
Do you have any articles in regard to this?
