December 2, 2013 by


  Recently someone asked me what arthritis feels like and what it feels like when I go off my food plan.

Through media and beliefs handed to us by others, we have bought the idea that quick, processed foods will help those of us too busy to cook.  All of these “shortcuts” have derailed our body’s natural ability to actually work!
