Hi helplines, I need some advice and clarification if you can please.
I myself suffer from pa and am on metho, enbrel, Celebrex, tramadol etc i have a friend who after a bad car accident in her 20's is now 48 and suffering with osteoarthritis in the spine. The only meds she has been given from her GP is painkillers, tens and she regularly see's (and pays for) a chiropractor. She has sent me a link from The Arthritis Association who she has just joined for £6 and is going to try their diet it's called the De coti-marsh programme and is a 3 step plan. According to the case studies on this site Arthritis can be eased by diet, and added vitamin D for pa sufferers??!
I am extremeley sceptical of all this, purely for the reason that I'm quite sure my Rheumy would not willingly put me on the medication I am on if all I needed to 'fix me' was to join this association and go on their diet!
If you know anything about this association and their de coti-marsh diet would you be able to tell me if this is recognised and legitimate? I'm worried that my friend is already in a lot of pain and is desperate to try anything to help her OA.
Many Thanks Poppy X
