Rheumatoid Arthritis and EFA's


Greetings RA friends!
Arthritis has plagued humans for centuries, ancient mummies give evidence that the disease existed centuries ago so we have a long standing battle!
A fact to ponder and question to ask!

"The prevalence of RA is generally lower in developing countries."
World Health Organization 2003
Could that have something to do with diet?
Here are two informative links on the benefits of Essential Fatty Acids for good health.

"My aunt Cornelia was a brilliant organist, and RA slowly whittled away her ability to play. I'm happy to say I was able to improve the quality of her life in those last few years with chiropractic care and supplementation."

Sandy, I found your articles to be very encouraging, and a ray of sunshine in those that battle this disease. Please keep posting, I will wait to see what further insight you have on Rheumatoid arthritis. I like the idea of a support group for this in Wilmington, NC, this is a great idea!

Sandy,
Like rust my diabetes never sleeps. Its assault on my eyes, my nervous system and major organs is relentless.
Therefore, reading your link, your story, your resourcefulness and your courage are an inspiration...maybe a moment of epiphany, in a broad context, for me and probably all who read it.
Your triumph and ingenuity are a model and metaphor for all who battle the darker side of the human condition.
For your Mediterranean magic, I thank you.
