  • I am in pain everyday! My life sucks! I just want to know how to get some relief! Most days I don't want to get out of bed! My feet and legs hurt the most on me but lately my hands are starting to hurt! On my right foot I have a lump on the bottom of my foot, I have bunions(big) on both feet, and I have rheumatoid on both but a lot more on the right, then I also have neuropathy on both feet. I also have cellulitis which makes my legs swell and throb with pain! I just have too much wrong with me, if I could find some relief for one or two of my problems I could deal with this a little better!! I would try some of the Garden of Eden but I don't know where to get some of the ingredients on the list? Has anyone tried that?? Any advice would be appreciated, thank you!!!!

  • Medication in place of Methotrexate for RA

    i was not able to tolerate Methotrexate and find that Arava,10 mg is a good substitute for me. You might want to question your RA doctor on this medication to see if you are a candidate. Good luck and I hope it will be the Nswer you need.

  • RA

    Hi There. Have you ever heard of Dr John Mcdougall. I recommend you check out his website. Everything on his site is free. His program has helped so many people and you can read about other people with RA who have been cured simply by changing their diet.

  • RA methotrexate alternatives

    5 g turmeric am pm, 1 fish oil 3 x day. 200 Mg alpha lipoic acid 3 x day with meals.
    Definitely green tea, resvertrol, and other foods which stimulate TH2 cytokines. Pine bark. Grape seed extract 500 mg 3 day.
    And paleo diet heavy in bones and gelatin (collagen products). All these stop the inflammation and neuropathy in my clinical experience.
    (you may have to look that up cytokine production in RA, to understand my comments)
