I do acupuncture. For sure it gives me some temporary relief of symptoms. When I have joint pain, it for sure gives me relief from the pain.
I've found for me, turmeric, and fish oil to be helpful in keeping inflammation down. When I'm flaring I take glutamine and slippery elm as well.
Entyvio seems to be pretty slow acting. I started it last August and it was Feb/March before I felt like it was working.
Good luck. Hope you can find some relief.
