Drug free management of arthritis

Hi,

Is anyone managing arthritis without drugs? Using food and herbs? I want to know how often I should be seeing my rheumatologist as it seems they only keep an eye on you if they're prescribing. Should I go even if I feel well?

Yes, (merely my opinion), Patient0, kindly πŸ™ 😌 consider continue monitoring via Rheumatologist πŸ‘©β€βš•οΈ. (No harm, no foul.)

If not your rheum., then your family physician πŸ‘¨β€βš•οΈ , provided they’re Autoimmune savvy & know what tests (bloods πŸ’‰ , x-rays πŸ’€ , feeling of joints πŸ– 🦢, etc.) to use to ensure you’re safely being monitored πŸ“Š πŸ“ˆ πŸ“‹ .

HealingJosefine ( m.youtube.com/channel/UCEYu... ) is a young lady πŸ‘© who’s actively remitted her disease via intensive Lifestyle & Dietary (L/D) means ( healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... ) β€” without medications.

Very best wishes to you, Patient0. ☺️ πŸ™ πŸ€ 🌺 🌞

Oh, merely few considerations πŸ€” to keep in back of mind 🧠 if you’d like:

. . . β€’ Just because we feel well 😊 , doesn’t mean we should relax (or cease) our vigilance 🧐 β€” to include physician monitoring.

. . . β€’ Merely a few dietary tweaks πŸ₯— & herbs 🌿 won’t necessarily put disease into "remission". Serious, long-term, comprehensive, committed L/D practice can nudge disease to subside for some (many?) of us. It’s a long-term πŸ“† πŸ—“ , life-long πŸ‘Ά πŸ§’ πŸ§‘ πŸ§“ experiential learning process πŸ˜£πŸ”¨ to successfully manage disease β€” to substantially improve our QoL (Quality of Life) πŸ€— .

. . . β€’ Medications πŸ’Š πŸ’‰ may be used judiciously as needed & weaned off of when no longer needed. πŸ‘πŸ‘

Hi

My arthritis started a few months back with inflammation in few fingers . I had RA factor 33 with ESR 25 .All other tests were negative. Since this is the beginning stage I didn’t go for Normal treatment.Instead I have done naturopathy and nutrition medicine treatment (supplements like curcumin ) The arthritis is 95 percent under control but still on nutrition supplements.

I’ve completely stopped all of my meds using the Paddison programme. I’m so much better now. Only stopped the last of meds 4 weeks ago, so still seeing rheumatology. Don’t know how long I’ll be followed up for.

Are you talking about rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis?
