hi!

i'm now taking food supplements & vitamins since June. I have RA for the last 3 years and was only taking medicines prescribed by my doctor. i believe that we should take the medicines they recommend because they base it on our present condition but i also feel that we also should include food suppements that would help us w/ our defiencies

anyways, a friend of mine took a food supplement for the immune system along with vitamins (calcium,folic acid,MSM) and never tried any of the prescribed medine because she was too scared to have other serious illness & she cannot afford it because she has a limited income. After 6 months she gradually improved but after a year our rheumy said that she is completely well & it is not a remission. She is playing badminton now. So I tried it.  My clients were surprised to see me driving & looking well. Imagine I have not taken any pain relievers for the last 2 months. I started last June although I get to feel some minimal pain that i can manage to ignore.

Ihave shared this w/ erin before.  I feel so "GOOD" & too busy & well to the point that I have not seen my doctor from the time I have tried this supplement because I did not feel any pain or the need to see him.  I will share the details when I get to see my rheumy & have the usual blood tests.

Hope every one would feel better tongue

Hey there.. Roza is right on with her advice... you can also try glucosamine and chondritin... as well as flax seed oils and fish liver oils... where is your pain? How are you feeling?

I am sure it would depend on what type of arthritis you have, but many people take glucosamine/chondroitin or fish oil. There is also a new supplement (but is prescription only) and is classified as a medical food by the FDA called "Limbrel" that is for osteoarthritis...

hello ducky!
 i'm taking MSM( naturemade glucosamine chondroitin. but i have stopped taking the regular meds and decided to take all the herbal food supplement.  What made me physically well is the food supplement immune syster booster.  I also take a mangosteen supplement & b12,calcium etc..  Imagine, I'm no longer into steroids,plaquenil & methotrexate and no pain reliever at all. hurray. But of course i will disclose the name of the supplement as soon as i get to see my rheumy & undergone the usual blood test because i don't want to mislead others.i want to share the good news when i get to see the improvement on my blood tests results.
 
i have ra for the last 3 years. my affected joints are both wrists(fused) and left knee.  decided to go on all herbal food supplement last june 2006 and experienced gradual drastic improvement recently.  but of course its my 100% faith in the Lord more than anything else.
 
i can drive.  i can do my sales work.
 
take care
