I'm not Joanna, but I also take turmeric and bromelain. If you go to www.iherb.com and look under the brand name Now, you'll find a Turmeric & Bromelain supplement for joint health.

Hi Joanna!

Where do you find the tumeric & bromelain? Are they in capsule form or powdered? I'd really like a little more information if you can share it please. I do already take cinnamon capsules twice a day.

Thank You for your feedback!

In Gratitude, Love & Light,
Chrissi

I've been taking turmeric with bromelain for a couple of months now and I think it's really helping. It's rare now that I have a bad day. The only RAD drug I'm on is Rituxan, which I only get 4 times a year.

I also take Omega-3 and D3 supplements.

I am a big fan of natural remedies-I take prescription meds,but not always enough & I don't
want to go stronger. I currently am taking Tumeric (curcumin)Irwin naturals makes a 3-in-1
joint pill(which includes things like cats claw-it is helpful,but unfortunately,expensive.MSM
is a good one. White willow bark is basically aspirin,there is boswella...so many things out
there-again,I have found the Irwin naturals a good choice,but costly(you can buy them at
health food stores and 1 thing I like-Irwin usually has pamphlets &/or CDs with them that
are free & explain why each ingredient is there & what it does).Anyway,good luck!
Oh! My favorite rub on is TriFlora arthritis gel

Interesting, but I don't think I could allow myself to "sting" that often. I just cringe when I remember the pain of one bee sting, let alone 20 at a time. Thanks for the information though.

If you're looking for a really NATURAL treatment WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS, Google apitherapy. It's honey bee stinging therapy. I did it for almost 2 years. Works WONDERS! Honey bees are amazing. The only reason I stopped it is because I was building a house and the bees are very time consuming. I stung 60 times per week - 20 on Monday, 20 on Wednesday and 20 on Friday. There's more time and effort involved in the bee stinging because you must take care of the bees - which is GREAT because they are taking care of YOU!!

You can also Google Pat Wagner, who is the "Bee Lady," and who had MS so terribly that she was essentially paralyzed, legally blind, incontinent, etc., etc. She had nothing to lose - and everything to gain - AND IT WORKED FOR HER IN A REALLY BIG WAY! She now walks, sees, leads a normal life - and teaches others about bee stinging for MS, RA and many other autoimmune diseases.

We are out here, however, I don't have any answers to the questions? I also would like answers but I haven't found any yet for natural ways to control the RAD. Wishing us all luck! I am thinking about trying a gluten free diet as it is supposed to work to decrease inflammation, but I haven't totally decided yet.

I know there are several different anti-inflammation diets out there, but haven't researched them too much as they made some very radical changes that I wasn't willing to make at that time. I also have to consider what my husband will eat and he wasn't willing to change his diet that drastically.

Does anyone know of and/or use natural medicines or remedies for their RA? I take Fish Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Cinnamon and Magnesium already along with the prescription meds that the rheumatologist has me on (Tramadol, Etodolac, Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, Clonazepam (to help me relax & sleep), Folic Acid and Methotrexate (7 pills at 2.5 mgs)).

I'm honestly not sure how much the Rx meds are helping because I still have severe inflammation in my system even after being on them for 2+ months, but when I'm off of them I hurt like crazy (I'm currently out of my Etodolac and am in a lot of pain).

I'd like to try to find more natural ways of easing my RA symptoms and other than what I'm already on I don't know where else to start. Any and all suggestions and experiences are welcome.

Thank You In Advance!

In Gratitude, Love & Light,
Chrissi
