TPS 206: Rheumatoid Arthritis, the role of diet and medications

This week Brett interviews Eileen Laird about her experience with crippling Rheumatoid Arthritis and how she has been able to manage it with a combination of mediation and dietary changes. In 2012 Eileen considered herself healthy before she started to experience debilitating aches and pains. After experimenting with a few options she found that a GAPS diet helped her drastically reduce her symptoms and and AIP (AutoImmune Paleo) protocol helped her even further. This worked well until 2016 when her symptoms came back with a vengeance and she was forced to reconsider medications. She has now found an approach that works for her and shares her story very honestly in this fascinating episode.
