Does Anyone Have Knowledge About Relapsing Polychondritis?

Question by mattie: Does anyone have knowledge about Relapsing Polychondritis?
I was diagnosed with this over 3 years ago. I have grown very tired of the side effects of the medicine ( Methotrexate) and have decided to just let the disease play itself out. I guess I just want someone to say ” yea that is a good option”. I haven’t said anything to anyone in my family yet. Just a note I am 44 years old.

Here is a story about a woman who got hers under control using a vegan diet. She specifically names the book “The McDougall Program,” by John McDougall, M.D. From another website I pulled up this:
“Many patients are helped by a healthy lifestyle of proper nutrition and exercise. The nutrition that is vegetarian appears to be more beneficial and if that does not help try a vegan diet.” Also ask your doctor if there are any alternative treatments that may help. If he is not helpful, find another doctor. I read over the list of side effects, so I understand your wanting to go off the drug. I don’t know if the vegan diet or alternative treatments will help, but I wish you the best of luck. I know what it is like to be on a medicine that is almost as bad as the disease.
