Essential oils and RA

  • By Healingnaturally

    I have been struggling with RA for several years and I have tried many things. I find that tumeric helps but in the last several months I have started taking Sulferzyme (young living) and using the essential oils. I no longer have pain! It is amazing! I can explain how to use the oils and help you through the process and the things I learned. It has been amazing……

    I started using oils too. They took my pain away from my knee. It is bone on bone and it took the pain away. I couldn’t believe it. If I walk a lot or if it is humid I notice a little pain. I use copaiba & palo santo.

    I started using CBD oil drops under my tongue. After about a month using the oil, I am almost pain free! I am getting my life back and am so thankful to be taking something that God gave us for healing! It is truly a blessing! 😊

    Sorry, I’m new to this website and am reading post. Very interested in a more natural way to help with my RA pain. I’ve just been recently diagnosed and am taking an RX, but it takes over 4 weeks for med to help. I have pain in my hands and I’ve tried the Tiger Balm. What kind of oils are ya’ll using?

      Maybe consider a warm paraffin hand bath. Warmers are easily available on internet. While not “natural” there is also a prescription NSAID topical gel that can be helpful for hands.
