RA at 25! Are you kidding me?
At the young age of 25, I was in the best shape of my life, had tons of energy, and was so happy! Then all of a sudden I felt like I had been run over my a car. My feet, hand, and ankles were causing me unbearable pain. I had no clue what was going on within my body. To make a long story short, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis a couple months later. My doctor put me on medicine, and all of the med choices I had have awful side effects that could occur. I was discouraged when my doc recommended me to increase my medicine and start using a stronger form (since the more mild forms were not helping me).
I am a young mother of one little boy and hope to have more children. I knew that if I depend on medicine to cure my pain, I could not nurse my babies while taking the prescription. That mother-baby bonding is not something I wanted to miss out on. I decided it was time to change what I was feeding my body, in hopes that it would lessen my pain. I read that a gluten and dairy free diet could improve my RA and decided to give it a shot. With in a week, my body felt 90% better and my "flares" of inflamed joints and swelling was gone. I love Udi’s bread, and bagels and it’s not just because my last name is Udy!
Thank you for helping me feel better! Great products like Udi’s make it so much easier to live gluten free!
