Alkalizing Options for Ra
I am 43 years old and diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis about 8 months ago. I am taking Sulfasalazine which is no longer controlling the flares and my doctor wants to put me on methotrexate. I just started an elimination diet a few days ago as I want to see what is bothering my body. I also have Psoriasis and it seems that whatever bothers that is causing my RA to get worse. I have read many posts on alkalizing but am confused as to what to take. Am I supposed to be doing both ACV and Lemon juice with baking soda? On one of your posts you said you would do the lemon juice and baking soda but also do the ACV with baking soda twice a week. I tried the ACV with baking soda this AM and it made me feel sick for awhile. Is this normal? Also do I try the lugol's and the borax as well. I am desperate to stay off the meds so if you could give me any advice I'd sure appreciate it. Also should I stop the meds right now or wait until I see improvement from diet etc? Thanks.
