Are You Desperately Looking for Alternative Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatments That Really Work?
When I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, my rheumatologist started me on the traditional course of treatment immediately. As is typical, I was prescribed prednisone, hydroxychloroquine, and methotrexate - very potent and toxic drugs.
A recent study published in the Lancet looked at the long term outcome of traditional rheumatoid arthritis treatments an found that after 20 years of treatment with drugs such as prednisone, methotrexate, penicillamine, and oral gold, half of the patients were either dead or disabled.
Like many people, perhaps like yourself, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis young - in my early 30s. I couldn't imagine taking these toxic RA drugs for the rest of my life, and I certainly didn't want to suffer an early death because of them. So I started doing research into alternative RA treatments. This website was created to share with you what I have learned.
When I first started doing research, I was discouraged. Most of what I found on the web only scratched the surface as far as exploring the various alternatives, and my Rheumatologist wasn't willing to explore any
alternative treatments with me.
In actuality, there have been lots of scientific studies done on various alternative rheumatoid arthritis treatments. Some seem to work better than others, but we will explore them all here. For certain, there are no magic bullets. Every body is different, and everyone responds to treatments differently, but my goal is to give you hope...
I am in remission and I am managing my RA naturally
, primarily with diet and supplements.
If you are interested in treating your rheumatoid arthritis naturally, I believe the key to success is knowledge
. You really have to understand RA - what likely causes it, what your
triggers are, what it does to your body, and about autoimmune disease in general, in order to understand the different treatment options available and how they can affect your disease.
You also need a great deal of determination. Treating rheumatoid arthritis naturally can be a lot more work than the traditional method of simply popping a few pills. So if you're ready to take charge of your health once and for all, I invite you to keep reading through this website.
Please remember that I am not a doctor, so I can't give you any medical advice. This site is intended to provide you with information only. If you see an alternative RA treatment on this site that you'd like to try, talk it over with your doctor - especially herbal supplements, as some of them can react adversely with some medications.
