My daughter was diagnosed with psoraic arthriti when she was three. She could barely walk. But after taking methotrexate injections, she went into remission three years later. Unfortunately she recently came out of remission. She is back on methotrexate, but it is not working. I would like to try a special diet, vitamins or ny alternative therapy before having to put her on the biologicals. She is only 7 now. He poor little body has already been through so much. Does anyone know of any alternative treatments that might work? Her doctors won't consider it.View Thread
