Managing Arthritis With An Allotment Centric Life

In this post I cover an oft-requested topic.  How my allotment centred life has helped me manage Adult Onset Still’s Disease (AOSD) and Fibromyalgia.  AOSD is a very rare auto-inflamatory disease, as a result the information on the web is drawn from a small sample of patients and isn’t very accurate, but this site is a reasonable place to start

My video doesn’t focus too much on the disease and how it’s treated.  Instead it delves into the impact that a range of lifestyle factors can have on managing the disease.  This approach seemed to have worked for me, it might not work for you, in fact it might not have worked for me either – conincidences happen.


In the video I go through the diagram above in some detail.  If you are interested in reading more about my experiences you can check out my blog.  Follow this link for information on the disease and how I dealt with it:
