On March 31st 2017, I was diagnosed with Relapsing Polychondritis (RP). This is a rare, degenerative, and (medically) incurable auto-immune disease that affects about 2 people in a million. It essentially involves the immune system attacking cartilage and causing irreparable damage.
There is no known cure and because there are too few people who have the disease there are no studies of note. So, those of us who have RP or any other rare or, as yet, unnamed auto-immune disease, can either choose to become living medical experiments or we can try to figure it out ourselves. I choose the latter!
In this blog I share my own experiments with my diet and lifestyle in an effort to take personal control of my RP and to Change My Outcome.
