Dear Kat41282,

I'm sorry I didn't see your question earlier. I have a couple of articles that may be useful. The first is on Natural Treatments for RA , and the second is the Best and Worst Supplements and Herbs for RA.

Ultimately, I would suggest talking with your health care provider about the use of supplements as part of your treatment plan.

Best wishes,

Byroney

I take 4000 mgs a day of fish oil which seems to help with some of the inflammation. I also just recently started taking turmeric so I'm not sure if that helps or not but I've read from several different sites that it does. Byroney mentioned discussing this with your Dr, I do agree, however be aware that most medical professionals (at least the one's that I've dealt with) will tell you that there is not enough scientific evidence that herbs and suppliments help.
