Subject: Re: Hello all
I have had hip pain in the past and I really feel for anyone that is still in pain despite medication. I am seeing lots of people posting at the moment saying that they are still sufferring.
You probably know I dont do take the drugs and my arthritis is AS than RA.
The only support and advice I can offer are these links below - your doctor and rheumatologist may not be aware of these -
From 1986 (the treatment is still going strong today in private clinics) -
From 2012 -
A good article from 2013 I found on approach - if you only read one of these links then this is the one that might help you
The article above refers to work done in the last few years by Alleso Fasano - at University of Maryland. I beleive that his work will eventually change the way that we look at bread forever.
In short if you stop eating Gluten containing foods then your gut lining can become less permeable - and for some that will stop access from the gut of large proteins and bacteria that start the chain reaction of autoimmune diseases. For example bacteria as discussed here - note the similarity between AS and RA !
