 OUR PLEDGE

As individuals living with rheumatic disease, Let us pledge to:

Exercise Regularly to reduce pain, improve joint function, and delay the onset of disability. To work with our doctors to find exercises that we can do to help me manage our health and get moving for at least 60 minutes each day.

2. Eat a Healthy, Balanced Diet to reduce inflammation in our joints. We will eat a diet that is low in processed foods and saturated fat and high in fiber, fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts and beans.

3. Take Care of our Mental Health and confront our disease with an open mindset. We will work to manage our stress, get enough sleep and talk it out with our doctor.

4. Be an Active Participant in Self Care by practicing good self-management techniques to help identify the causes of flares, avoid triggers and/or catch them early when they happen and roll out our individual flare plan.

5. We pledge to follow our doctor’s recommended treatment plan and take all our medications as directed.
