The Connection Between Gluten & Arthritis
Can gluten cause arthritis? Since writing the international best seller, No Grain No Pain, one of the most common email questions I get is whether or not gluten can cause arthritis? Can gluten cause RA? Can gluten cause Lupus? Can gluten cause fibromyalgia? Can gluten cause osteoarthritis…psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis…
Can gluten cause arthritis?
The simple answer is YES. In the following video, I address this question in great detail.
Gluten Sensitivity Commonly Contributes to Arthritis
If you look at the archives in Gluten Free Society, you will find a number of articles, research studies, and case study successes linking gluten to several different forms of arthritis. I have included several links below to help you navigate to your condition easily:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Migratory Arthritis
- Polymyalgia Rheumatica
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
Because most forms of arthritis are autoimmune in nature, please make sure that you take the time to watch this video on the mechanisms of autoimmunity. Remember that gluten can be a trigger for arthritis, but there are many other triggers as well you will want to become familiar with.
If you are struggling with arthritis symptoms with no end in sight, and you have not read No Grain No Pain, you should. Apply the diet in chapters 7 and 8. If you have read and applied the NGNP diet and noticed dramatic improvements, please comment below. Your story might help someone else find an answer to their health problem.
Always looking out for you,
