In September I gave my sister and BIL the Arthritis book as well as the BTD book because he has RA so bad in his hands that he could not do any wood work, which he dearly loves. Today I got this email from my sister:
Don has been really working on the diet suggestions in the book, and yesterday, for the first time since - well, I don't remember when - he worked at the townhouse all day and his hands did not hurt!!  He is totally amazed that the results were this fast. It is quite a restricted diet - he has to avoid red meats, wheat, and some of his favorite fruits and veggies.  However, he did have pancakes and bacon yesterday morning and didn't feel the effects.  Luckily we have a Whole Foods really close where we can get gluten-free products, which is good because he really loves pasta and hasn't had any for several weeks.  Again, thanks for thinking of him!  This has truly made a difference in our lives!
I'm impressed!

Wheat avoidance is very important with RA, interesting that his "favorite" food is pasta.




Posted on face book today.

Quoted Text
GreenMedInfo.com A very convincing argument for wheat avoidance for RA:

"Another suspect lectin disease is rheumatoid arthritis. The normal human IgG molecule possesses carbohydrate side chains, which terminate with galactose. In rheumatoid arthritis much of the galactose is missing, so that the subterminal sugar---N-acetyl glucosamine---is exposed instead. These deficient IgG molecules feature strongly in the circulating immune complexes that cause fever and symptoms.12 In diet responsive rheumatoid arthritis one of the commonest trigger foods is wheat, and wheat lectin is specific for N-acetyl glucosamine---the sugar that is normally hidden but exposed in rheumatoid arthritis. This suggests that N-acetyl glucosamine oligomers such as chitotetraose (derived from the chitin that forms crustacean shells) might be an effective treatment for diet associated rheumatoid arthritis. Interestingly, the health food trade has already siezed on N-acetyl glucosamine as an antiarthritic supplement.13"




Peter D'Adamo The link with WGA is especially interesting in light of the fact that most RA cases have a genetic propensity to synthesize 'galactose deficient antibodies' in which the FC portion of their antibodies have the polymerized galactose replaced instead with n-acetyl glucosamine, which is the amino sugar that WGA wheat lectin is a specifc for.

Quoted from pegf1008
He is totally amazed that the results were this fast. It is quite a restricted diet - he has to avoid red meats, wheat, and some of his favorite fruits and veggies.  However, he did have pancakes and bacon yesterday morning and didn't feel the effects.


This is great news and great of you to share the Arthritis book with them.  I have RA along with dozens of other autoimmune inflammatory conditions and I had similar fantastic results after I discovered ER4YT and the Arthritis book.  One caution that you may want to share with your sis & BIL is that the bad effects from eating wheat do not appear for 24-48 hours after eating it.  So if he had pancakes on Sunday and felt fine Monday, all was not necessarily fine.  It takes 24-48 hours for the food to travel through the stomach, to the small intestine, and then the lectins leak through the intestines into the bloodstream and end up in the joints, and THEN the immune system has to launch its attack before the pain would start.  It takes days for all of that to happen.

So just a caution--if the pain comes back, he should look at what he ate 2-3 days ago, not just the day before.  This delay has tricked many people into denying that they have a problem with wheat.  Autoimmune food allergies (or sensitivities, intollerance, whatever you want to call it) is not like food allergies that reveal themselves when the food hits the stomach.  That proximity between eating the food and feeling the bad effects is much more reliable and easier for people to believe than a food that takes 2 days to cause pain, which is what happens in autoimmune reactions.

Since he just had the "bad" breakfast yesterday, he may not start to feel really bad from it until tomorrow.  Maybe check back with him tomorrow with a lot of sympathy.

By the way, brown rice pastas that you can find at Whole Foods are a really excellent substitute for flour-based pasta.
