Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with RA in 2008. After years of prednisone, plaquenil and methotrexate, I decided to stop all my meds because I was still having major flares taking these terrible drugs. I'm on a more natural routine now and praying that this will help me with my pain and lesson my flares. So far no meds for the last three months. Still flaring exactly the same as with the drugs. Started drinking collagen a week and a half ago and will start juicing cucumbers and celery when my juicer arrives tomorrow. Per the "Paddison program". Will let you know how it goes.
