Testimonial written by Tom:
I’m a 67 year old male diagnosed with RA in 2012. I was totally miserable. I could hardly dress myself, could not twist a door knob or hold a fry pan. After taking heavy duty medication the RA was somewhat under control. However, I weighed in at 229 pounds and didn’t have a lot of success dieting. So, I gave the paleo diet a try and in a few months dropped to 189 pounds. Soon after I felt better and better. Last August (2014) I reduced the RA medication by 50% and in September stopped completely and the RA symptoms did not return. I asked my rheumatologist what happened and he just said apparently the RA went into remission and may or may not return. I wasn’t satisfied with his answer so I searched the Internet and discovered Tiffany Francis’ story. So, I’m sure the paleo diet is what drove the RA into remission.
