    Rheumatoid Arthritis is not inevitable, no matter the particulars of your family history or genetics. Some people have genetics that make them more susceptible, but something must still trigger the disease process. Likewise, it is usually possible, even after the rheumatoid arthritis has been triggered, to "untrigger" it by reversing its underlying causes.

    One underlying causes of rheumatoid arthritis is a disruption of healthy gut bacteria. This can happen because of any number of stressors: taking antibiotics, losing a job, losing a loved one, having a loved one seriously ill or injured, divorce, your home going into foreclosure, surgery, taking a board exam, traveling in a third world country, getting some other illness, working long hours without enough rest and more. Even joyful events like the birth or a child, a job promotion or, moving to a new house can cause stress that can trigger RA.

    This is because for most people stress has a strong impact on the gut. Once gut flora gets out of balance it can stay that way for years and years, until something helps it to rebalance itself.

    This rebalancing of gut flora is one way to help "untrigger" rheumatoid arthritis.

    One way to do this is by reintroducing healthy bacteria everyday through your diet.

    Most people know about the benefits of eating live culture yogurt because of the healthy bacteria it contains. Most people don't realize the almost infinite number of other sources of probiotics. Many can be made in your own kitchen without much effort and easily incorporated into your everyday diet.

    If you can eat dairy, it is easy to get probiotics through yogurt, kefir, and the many commercial probiotics supplements grown on a dairy base.

    If you can't eat dairy, you may not realize how easy it is to still get enough probiotics.

    Here is partial list of the many non-dairy probiotics-containing foods you can eat and drink:

    1. Commercially available cultured coconut milk
    2. Homemade cultured coconut milk, soymilk, rice milk or fruit juice made using kefir grains
    3. Unpasteurized sauerkraut
    4. Unpasteurized kim chee
    5. Sour pickles
    6. Other vegetable ferments, such as sour beets, sour turnips, fermented radishes, etc.
    7. "Potato cheese" – cooked potato fermented with brine from live sauerkraut culture
    8. Brine from ferments used as a digestive tonic and Soup Stock
    9. Fermented chutney
    10. Miso
    11. Miso Pickles
    12. Tempeh-soy
    13. Ferments made from other beans such as pinto beans, kidney beans, navy beans, etc.
    14. Rejuvenac-made from sprouted grain
    15. Kombucha-a tea fermented with a special kombucha culture
    16. Porridge-fermented overnight before cooking to increase digestibility

    These probiotics-containing foods start with either an already established culture which you can buy or someone can gift you (yogurt, kefir, miso, tempeh and other bean ferments and kombutcha) or capture wild bacteria from the air (sauerkraut, kim chee, sour pickles, other vegetable ferments, brines, rejuvenac and porridge.)
