  1. Hi Cathy!

    I loved this article. I will definitely check out the links.

    This approach to living seems quite empowering, especially in how it focuses on a comprehensive approach to wellness, and not just dieting or losing weight, like so many "fad" approaches.


  2. Thrive with RA,
    I hope you enjoy the links. I agree that this is an empowering way of living. Funny how getting back to simple living can be empowering. :)


  3. I have rheumatoid arthritis and have been taking medications for two years. So good to read that the primal/paleo diet can help with arthritis!
