My RA Story

So far I only have Rheumatoid Arthritis in my fingers on both hands and my knees, it is mild so far so I only take aspirins for it. Sometimes when I write a check at the store, I get embarrassed with my fingers so bent. It helps to exercise, keeps everthing a little more limber.

    I thought this might help you
    My wife had Rheumatoid Arthritis. She was getting backpain once in a year during winter and after taking tablets for 1-2months it use to go away. But last year it was worse. She had constant body pain though she was under medication. When dr changes tablet she use to feel better for 1-2 days and pain was back. Dr then tries steroid tablets. My wife started accumulation fat. But it didn’t help at all. We tried Arvada. It increased her gastric and she started getting nausea. We were terrified without knowing what to do. Then i found a book on naturopathy from Jindal hospital. I thought I would give a try. It really helped her. Since a year she doesn’t have any symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is what we did that helped us. I hope it might help someone having trouble with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
    a) Daily drink fruit juice without adding sugar or sth extra.I use to make pomegranate,apple, orange, pineapple, watermelon, muskmelon etc. I used slowjiucer to get juice out of fruits. Drink it twice morning and evening.
    b) Take 2 thick cotton towels (turkey towel). Dip one in hot water 40-50 degree celsius. dip another in cold water. Squeeze it to dry. Now you have hot towel. Put that on your back. Let it stay for 2 min. Now take the cold towel. Squeeze it to dry. Put that on your back. leave it for 30 sec. repeat it 4 times before your bed. End this by applying another hot towel for 1 min. c) Then take some massage oil and massage back for 3-4min.

    Try it for 3 weeks. I bet you will see improvements. English medicines will have side effects. This is all natural and you will naturally. I think fresh fruit juices will have lot of antioxidants and help your body to heal. Hot/cold packs will help you to recover too. I didn’t try which one of this actually helped her. I know its one of it OR could be both. I didn’t want to experiment. But it really helps. Try it.Good luck.
