Carley’s Story 

When you rely on your hands for work, controlling the pain and inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis is vital. As a hair stylist, Carley is finding new ways to keep her hands healthy and pain free. 

It’s been almost three years since Carley was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). As a hairstylist, having her hands work properly is important. While flare ups are never easy, they’re especially hard when you need your hands for work. She has worked very hard to get where she is today by balancing an anti-inflammatory vegan diet, exercise and medication. She is passionate about the effects of food on the body and hopes to spread her success story with everyone she can.
