If you have seen any of my previous posts I was on Methotrexate, then Benepali. Neither worked and I was left just on steroids. I seemed to be improving on Methotrexate then got a chest infection. I had three courses of antibiotics and as I normally would get thrush after them decided to take some either pre or pro biotics. I took them for over a year and as soon as I started methotrexate again I flared up. For a year I just got worse so was started on Benepali, it didn't do anything so it was stopped. My chiropractor suggested I took Kefir, so I bought some and have been making and eating it. This weekend imagine my horror as when I was looking at more things to do with it I read how good it is for RA, but not if you are on Methotrexate or anything like Benepali as the Kefir boosts the immune system and they described it as trying to drive a car with the brakes on. I have been trying to help myself and probably making things much worse. Now I can't even enjoy my lovely kefir.
