Rheumatoid Arthritis =awful, awful pain and swelling , but …..
I have had great success at juicing green vegetables , any greens , but my favorite is cucumber, kale, spinach and celery. Do this for three times each day with a juicer . Eat some applesauce and a salad with a little chicken breast added to it for your lunch and dinner. In a few days you will be glad you tried it. Had to share.
I can’t eat grains, dairy , nightshades or a lot of meat.
I have heard many success stories with juicing and eating a light diet like this. BUT I tell you what juicing is a PITA! So much prep and clean up. I bought a juicer hoping it would cure me but after all that work I just couldn’t keep up. Maybe I should pull it out of the closet and give it a go again…now that I am feeling better from AP.
Diagnosed with RA in October 2014, pain started in February 2014

Confession: I have the most beautiful juicer I bought years ago after watching the documentary “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.” And…there it sits nestled neatly in my cabinet without one single use…criminal, I know. You have inspired me…I will try it.
200mg Celebrex 1 times per day.
100 mg Minocycline every other day (Actavis Brand)
If you use a one of the nutri-style infusers (Nutri Bullet, NutriInfusion etc etc) there is no mess, (just wash and remove core/seeds from the fruit) mix with veg and the machine uses all of it. Just be careful not to overdo the sweet fruit (lots of salicylates and fructose).
