PMR Diet: Foods to eat and avoid

I know this is only anecdotal, but i “cured” my severe PMR with diet in 40 Days. My CRP went from 26. 3 to .6 in that time. I used the “Paddison Program” for Rheumatoid Arthritis, though I think any whole food plant based diet might have worked, so certainly worth a try, but you need to be strict with NO ADDED OIL. I have been 3 years vegan now with no PMR symptoms, no meds, and never felt better.

Hello @ghsmith, Welcome to Connect. Thanks for sharing what helped you get rid of your PMR symptoms. While I do think diet and lifestyle play a major part in our health I think we still have to be a little careful and do our own research finding reputable information and data. I was not able to find anything other than a rebuttle of sorts and a lot of ad type sites for the Paddison Program. Eating healthier and limiting sugar, alcohol and red meat has helped keep my PMR in remission.

Are you able to share how you found Connect, what you were searching for?

I am happy that you cured your PRM in 40 days. I tried to find any independent study that would support such an amazing recovery. I could not. I do not doubt that you cured your PMR. I only wish I could find some independent data about the Paddison Program. I will keep looking for some clinical studies.

I’m just diagnosed with PMR and on day 5 of prednisone. I’ve started the Paddison Program (also 5 days) and am wondering if you were on prednisone during that 40 day period? I don’t want to stay on prednisone and reluctantly started due to agonizing PMR symptoms. Thanks for sharing.
