Diet and Rheumatoid Arthritis

Robb Wolf, author of  The Paleo Solution frequently has real life success stories on his blog.  A recent post was on the success of diet and rheumatoid arthitis.  Here's a bit of the story:

Within two weeks her blood pressure was normal. That was nothing compared to what other benefits she has experienced. Since May 1, 2010 my mom has lost 45 pounds, eliminated her asthma and allergies, and started sleeping well every night.

If that wasn’t enough, she is now completely off prednisone and painkillers for the first time in 15 years. AND at her last rheumatology appointment, her blood tests showed that two of three markers for rheumatoid arthritis are now in normal range. She has even forgotten to take her ra medicine a couple of times and plans to talk to her doctor about tapering off it.
