Hi All - I think there might be a few people on the board that are using Minocycline to fight their RA. I went to my GP on Friday, and she was very, very surprised at how I look, and then we did the lab work.
I was so excited to get my lab work back that I had to tell someone(s) that would appreciate what I am saying: Everything but one test result dropped into range, and in some cases, the low end of the range. The only thing she forgot to run was the Sjogrens test, so next time on that. BUT, my platelets were sticky (which can cause strokes), and that has dropped into the middle of the range after I started taking 2 ginger capsules every day. Next, my Eosinophil's (allergy indicator) dropped into the bottom of the range, all of my metabolic panel dropped into the middle or bottom of the range. I switched to a Keto diet a month ago, and my cholesterol dropped 25 points (it was already within range) and my triglycerides are the lowest they have been in years. My thyroid (I take Synthroid) is in range for the first time in probably 20 years. My D3 is 68, which is the highest it has been in 25 or 30 years. My RA factor is now in the middle of the range, my sed rate is actually 15. The only test that is out of range is my CR-P - inflammation. I am going to start taking an herbal inflammatory I made to see if I can bring that down (mother in laws illness / death, and two hurricanes <one of which smacked us around a little> are probably the main reasons for the inflammation.
So, that is my adventure for the week! YOOHOO!!!
