Zero Gluten Reduced My Fibromyalgia & RA Pain

Cutting out gluten cut my pain and inflammation by almost 50% !

I'm 52 years old.  I've had Rheumatoid Arthritis since I was 2 years old, with a few years respite in the middle, and Fibromyalgia from my late 20s.  Osteoarthritis also appeared in my mid thirties.

When I stopped eating gluten my pain (and to a lesser degree my inflammation) declined by somewhere between 40% and 50% - it was incredible I wouldn't have believed it was possible.  I also regained most of my short term memory, and my 'brain fog' near enough disappeared.

Last winter I spent about 80% of my days in bed, exhausted, unable to think straight.  In March I had been researching something unrelated, and happened to read something about Fibromyalgia sometimes being affected by gluten.  I then switched research and starting seeing what I could find out about the relationship.

To cut a long story story (I'll write a later post about gluten and fibromyalgia etc), I stopped eating gluten.  The rest you already know.  It wasn't easy, and I've given in many times.  But now when I do eat gluten, it hits me very hard.  So now I avoid it like the plague !

So now 8 months later, and as I always want more and more info on something (bad habit I know), I recently decided to attend a free, online Gluten Summit. If any friends have similar problems to me, maybe you'd like to watch it all/take part too. It is also suitable for doctors and health professionals.
It's on from November 11-17th and is easy to register and watch.
