My first posting on this forum, thank you for having me. I am here purely by accident, I was discussing a new diet I had put myself on with a friend and to my surprise he asked me what Blood type I was, I told him I was A+ and he said I was nearly there with my diet and recommended that I join this forum. I hope what I am going to say will help Becky with her dad.
I am 68 years old and have suffered with chronic rheumatoid arthritis for 30 years, with it there are complications in the form of Felty's syndrome and vasculitis, on top of this I have Barratt's oesophagus which I believe is caused by the drugs that I have been given over the years. I have 2 knee replacements done 6 years ago after 8 months in a wheelchair.
I was on holiday 7 weeks ago when I noticed this chap didn't eat bread etc. and I asked the question why and he said he was on gluten and lactose free diet, this was a young chap who hadn't been unwell and he had got the diet from just talking to someone and it had made himm feel well. So me being a person much the same has Becky's dad thought at my stage in life it wasn't worth it.
Well somebody up there said try it and I went on it a week later, 6 weeks on I am a new man, not sure whether my diet is exactly right but hoped to find out by coming on this forum and hoping my experience would help others and low and behold I find a posting where Becky's dad was very dubious.
At the moment everything I eat is gluten free, lactose was a different kettle of fish because my wife was struggling shopping and finding poducts completely free,  however I have dropped milk in favour of soyer. I eat 20 killograms  of honey a year (which I discovered 12 months ago off the same man.) nothing will move me now I feel great.
I welcome any comments that will help my diet too. I will be scouring this forum over the next week picking up a lot of useful imfo.

Helo Arthur
and welcome
what a wonderfull story
- I like the part about 20 kg honey- I ┤m a beekeeper
- but I gather that you use them in food and baking as well- or else it sounds a lot !
If you feel like it you can make a new thread if you need to ask Q about your diet.
I am sure any of the good A┤s will be around to help you .

Hello Henriette
Thank you for your welcome.

My wife reckons that my honey consumption is more that 20kg. I will let you know soon when the 1kg. jar of honey that I have just started on Saturday is finished. Most of my honey goes in tea, in fact I would say my consumption will go down this year for I won't be having porridge anymore for breakfast. I had ecsema for years on 1 leg so bad that it was developing into ulcers in a couple of places, and then I started eating honey dropping all sugar and other sweeteners. It was like a miracle the ecsema cleared up within about 6 weeks, I couldn't believe it and have only just started telling people about it because I didn't want to have false hopes myself, but I got through the whole of this year and now feel completely cured. I eat honey all the time has it comes out the jar when my throat is bad. I suffer big time with throat ulcers caused by Methatrexate I  take for my RA, I have no choice I have to take it, it keeps the vasculitis in control, in fact there is every likelihood that it will be increased again next week, I will have to wait and see. The consultant as good as said its methatrexate and a bad throat or vasculitis and goodbye cruel world. Being a spiritualist that doesn't frighten me but having a saw throat is not pleasant.

I also use soap with honey in it.

Thank you for your welcome Lola
At the moment I am feeling fantastic and every day is better than the last. It seems as though I am doing something right and I am a believer in if it's working don't touch. I shall play it by ear and read each thread that appertains to my condition. So far the thing I love the most I am getting 8 hours sleep.

Doesn't honey also have some antibacterial properties? It seems I read that it can be used to apply topically to burns or cuts and it has great healing properties that way, too.

If it's any help, hayfever sufferers eat comb honey at the beginning of the season, in areas you frequent so you get the right pollen for you area. In the UK beekeepers sell it in little boxes about 4 in. x 3 ins.. What you do is eat the honey chewing the wax comb at the same time. I am told this will give you a mild hayfever but will give your body the antibodies to fight the rest of the season.
I must say that was told to me by a beekeeper, I don't have to try it because I am not a sufferer, although I admit I like the honey like that it is so sweet.
