Any suggestions for how to find a dietician that either specializes in AS or has experience in this area?

My Rheumatologist doesn’t think diet will help so can’t rely on him for assistance in this area.

Where are you located?

I never found one personally, had mostly to learn on my own here or elsewhere. Of all the rheumies I had in Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, Arizona (moved a lot for work) only 1 encouraged me to follow Low Starch Diet... all the others commented no correlation.

Even if this diet does not work for you fully, I strongly encourage eating a very healthy diet... avoiding junk foods (especially sodas, fruit juices), processed foods and limiting alcohol. Garbage in = garbage out... and garbage out is AS pain and other health issues.

A book I recommend for those looking into alternatives is Alternative Medicine Guide to Arthritis. Gave me several ideas I looked into at different times. Wish I would have been more disciplined with some earlier.

AS may win some battles, but I will win the war.

Thanks!

I’m in Atlanta and have been looking but Google searching and insurance website haven’t been very helpful…to many results that are too broad.

Thank you very much for sharing this valuable information. Seeing that David Peralmutter y M. Hyman They recommended this book, I didn't hesitate and bought it. It's been 15 days since I finished reading and the same days I have been following the recommendations advised by the author of the book approximately 90%, and the result in just one week is beginning to be very positive. When I started the starch-free diet, focusing on animal fats and proteins, I had great improvement, but I still suffered great pain. Now by eating less fats and animal proteins, replacing these foods with large amounts of non-starchy vegetables, taking antibacterial herbs in the morning, probiotics at night and various supplements, I am recovering my lost health. I hope to continue this path and find new goals for better health, which I need. Nothing more than to thank you for having shared the information and encouragement to everyone who reads the book and putting into practice this nutritional method that is putting me on the right path.
