I am taking Methotrexate from last two years but still the stiffness and inflamation some times make it worse as I am overweight too,so couldnot get the benefit specaially on cold weather. But recently I found very good natural and easy way. Actually I was taking green tea, this is not a regular green tea you would get from shop. You might get it from health shop, I am not sure, I am not promoting any product so I want you to make sure the one you use in herbal(pure green tea). My purpose of taking tea was too loose weight so I was trying adding different herbs to make it more effective, like cinnamon sticks. Nothing suited me as I would bloat and stiffness become worse. So I started adding fresh ginger sticks in my thermo bottle. The green tea I am using is quite expensive than the regular one so I try to make 6 cups out of 2 bags or two spoon. I realised that from last two weeks I had not taken my medcines cause I was feeling so light and energetic and no stiffness that I had forgot so quickly that I was taking medicine. You understand what I am saying. Though I am back on my regular medication as I don't want to get in any other problem but I am regularly taking green tea every morning and before going to bed. If you make 1ltr of green tea you could take it for two day same. I don't know how healthy it is but I am full of energy and could spend some time out with kids. I really couldn't stop sharing this experience as I know how it hold you back and other people do not understand you as there is no sign. My partner even said before that I was acting that I could not move my finger or walk, it is just a excuse to not to work. I would be glad if it helps any one of you who is in same condition. Good luck!View Thread
