IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT THIS WEB SITE IS OWNED BY, MANAGED BY AND CONTROLLED BY DRUG COMPANY EXECS,FORMER DRUG COMPANY EXECS, AND OTHERS WITH STRONG PROFIT MINDED CONNECTIONS TO BIG PHARMA. IF I WERE TO SPEAK FREELY ABOUT ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF HEALING THIS DISEASE I WOULD RUN INTO EITHER POSTERS ACTING AS SPOKESMEN FOR THE DRUG INDUSTRY OR MODERATORS THAT WOULD FIND A WAY TO DELETE MY COMMENTS. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR CURABLE DISEASE.

Hi Errol,

There are many discussions here about alternative methods and complementary approaches to treating Rheumatoid Arthritis. So feel free to discuss as long as you're not advertising particular sites or products.

And while suggestions are absolutely fine here, be careful about prescribing one treatment over another. What often works for one person may not work as well for another and, either way, should be discussed with one's doctor(s).

I am always looking for alternative methods to treating my RA. Web Md is only one source I look to. I hope that others with this problem are also looking at what else can be done, like changes in diet and life style, that can also effect how you feel.

The way to cure the disease is to correct the digestive imbalances that are leaking the toxins into the body through the colon commonly known as leaky gut syndrome. The best way to correct leaky gut and to get the toxins and acids out of th joints is with juice fasting. Fasting will cleanse and heal the body and correct the arthritis conditions.
