Hey everyone, I’m trying to get a book published for the Arthritis Foodie Community, but I need your help! Please pre-order a book, or a gift package, to raise funds and awareness for this idea by going to: https://publishizer.com/arthritis-foodie/.
Packages include: invites to the book launch, Arthritis Foodie notebooks and aprons, hamper of goodies and even a retreat!
‼️THE BOOK DOES NOT EXIST YET!! But if awareness and funds are raised, IT CAN HAPPEN (if I don’t get more than 50 book orders then I have to refund you all and it won’t happen…).
Why am I doing this?
6 years ago, in my final year of university, I was really poorly with no diagnoses of what it was until almost 2 years afterwards… SERONEGATIVE ARTHRITIS. Arthritis? Are you joking? I couldn’t believe it and I didn’t want to believe it either.
For years, I hid my condition, only telling close friends and family. I was embarrassed, angry and frustrated. I’ve been on countless medications. I inject myself 4 times a month, soon to be 6 times a month with two different medications. I’ve been fed up, low, and at times I have felt very alone.
Then last year, I set up the Instagram account called Arthritis Foodie, as a diary of health with recipes and natural remedies to try to help my symptoms – and at the same time try to help others too. I met so many people my age and instantly felt less alone. Since then, Arthritis Foodie has become a community of almost 9,000 people. I kept my face hidden from the page until a few weeks ago (before then it was just photos and videos of my hands!) because, I realised, how can I change the stigmas attached to arthritis if I don’t be brave and put my face out there? And now, I’m making a bigger step and attempting to publish a book.
What will be in this book?
“Do you have arthritis? Are you looking for natural remedies to feel better alongside your medication (like me)? I began a natural remedy journey in August 2018 when after years of drugs, flare-ups and pain, I decided to look into holistic ways of healing, hoping to find young people like me eager to do the same. One year, and 8,500+ followers later, Arthritis Foodie has become a community of positivity and strength, offering advice, recipes, products, exercise and pain relief for people who have arthritis. The book will bring all of this together!”
