Hi TS Family,
So I’ve been sober for 22 days, fell, and now I’m on day 11. Here’s my issue, my inflammation & pain is 10x worse than when I was drinking (I have RA). 10 years ago I went GF, and it helped immensely! My sober diet has consistently been sugar and wheat (1 & 2 on inflammation causing list). This is something I need to change.
I know there’s GF and SF friends out here, let’s start a thread to help each other out. Love you all!
Do you do any turmeric?
I think @Yoda-Stevie swears by it.
I do a turmeric green tea in the morning. And also got some turmeric oil. But I don’t use it much. I get lazy. It think cutting out the sugar and listening to my body has help with my back pain and inflammation. Unfortunately sometimes I feel pretty lazy but I’m not in pain. #fuckpain.
I have heard there’s lots of benefits to GF and Sugar free diets. And not drinking.
I hope you can find the relief your looking for.
I’m not sure what your issue is but chiropractics helps me a lot! Not the old fashioned manually crack your back. No way! That scares the shit of out me. But the least invasive kind is what I do. Let me know if you’d like info on that.
Hi Eric, funny you mentioned Turmeric, I pulled a bottle out from the back of my cabinet this morning, expired 2021, but figured I would try it anyway, lol. Thank you so much!! This is exactly what I’m looking for, what has helped people, or foods you like, etc. Anything goes!
With Rhuematoid Arthritis, you have to be very careful with Chiropractors, they need to be specialized in the disease or they can make you worse. I have been to one before that did help my neck with headaches. Right now I have swollen joints, have previous damage in my hands. I’ve had joint removal surgery in my feet 12 years ago, helped a lot. Unfortunately doesn’t last. Thank you again.
Turmeric with pepper extract is part of my daily supplement intake, along with Krill oil and glucosamine.
I’m 56, train & teach boxing, kickboxing and Krav Maga. This with the beating my body took in the military, managing pain and inflammation is key. Diet, supplements, exercise and occasional ice packs are how I do it.
I don’t have gluten free/ sugar free suggestions but a huge catalyst of inflammation in the body is stress. Meditation, walking, dancing (any movement that feels good to your body), getting enough sleep, being out in nature always help me. Also taking fish oil along with turmeric
