I have been seeing a Naturopath doc for about the last year. He has helped me to get off my last 2 RA medications. I am taking a supplement to help control my active viruses. I recommend also seeing a Naturopath in addition to your RA doctor.
For about 10 years I took Arava, Naproxen and Hydroxychloroquin for my RA. I also started taking Rhinocourt nasal spray at the same time for allergies I developed and later added Zyrtech to control the hives I started breaking out in.
Over the last 5 years these main things have helped me to control my arthritis and allergies, and get off all 5 medications: gluten-free diet; eat very little sugar; eat mostly whole foods including lots of veggies; adding supplements like fish oil and flaxseed oil; adding coconut oil to my diet; and exercising regularly.
All those changes were over time and worth it. I hope this information can help someone else too.View Thread
