Sleep is so difficult when you have RA. I go between insomnia and fatigue, it’s a very annoying cycle. But I make sure to invest in good quality bedding that makes sleep more inviting. These have 5 star rating and I couldn’t agree more! Occasionally, they offer great discounts so when they do, snap it up!

Supplements

Magnesium

Magnesium is great for Rheumatoid Arthritis! It helps with restlessness, pain management, inflammation and reduces the toxicity due to all our meds. Magnesium can come in a variety of forms so it really comes down to personal preference. You will find a huge variety of magnesium at Nourished Life.

Calcium is particularly beneficial if you are taking steroids. Long term high dosages of steroids can lead to osteoporosis.

Vitamin D helps to absorb calcium and helps with the relief of rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. Certain RA medications can deplete Vitamin D.

You can get Calcium and Vitamin D combined supplement or separately.

Biotin for hair loss

Many rheumatoid arthritis medications cause hair loss. If this is you, I would recommend Biotin. Biotin comes in many forms but these are most popular with amongst those with RA with fantastic results.

Books for Rheumatoid Arthritis

These books have helped me tremendously in terms of balancing my medication and diet to reduce inflammation. Some of these books I was able to get from my local libraries, some I bought off ebay and some I bought outright. I just like having a physical book particularly the recipe books. In addition, I used these recipes/books in conjunction with a symptoms tracker. I have a free symptoms tracker you can download below. Again these books make great gifts for someone with rheumatoid arthritis.

The best books you can get for Rheumatoid Arthritis are from Amy Myers. Her books and program were recommended to me by my Rheumatologist and they are a fantastic source of information. You can use my $10 discount code MALY10 for any purchases on her website.

Ladies Only

One of my absolute favourite products EVER and has been a huge game changer for me is period underwear by Modibodi!

I originally bought these for my daughter but thought I’d try one for myself. OMGosh, I will never go back to fiddly, unhygenic, uncomfortable pads or tampons. Modibodi is literally like wearing normal underwear.

I was sceptical at first but boy, I’m so glad I gave it a try. Now that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Raynaud’s, I can’t imagine having to deal with fiddly packaging and all the other annoying stuff associated with THAT time of the month!

Taking on or off bras can also be a challenge with rheumatoid arthritis. Front zip bras are a good alternative.
