Practice Model: Nutritional Program for Rheumatoid Arthritis

The following is an excerpt of the case study by Dan Lukaczer. As stated, this report is an example of how to develop a nutritional plan for RA and other forms of arthritis. This is based on the concept that research studies with RA patients have suggested that the clinical benefits from a dietary “prescription” may involve more than just the elimination of potentially antigenic proteins. Numerous adjunctive nutritional sources have been explored, and some have shown reproducible, consistent attenuation of symptoms. These include probiotics, fish oils, and antioxidants, which are briefly reviewed in the attached case study. By Dan Lukaczer, published in Integrative Medicine, Vol. 4, No. 2.
