Subject: Alternative Medicine
I am new to this site but I love what I see so far! Great to know there is an active community for people like us.
I am 21 with moderate/severe RA in hands, feet, wrists, knees... And the list goes on. I was diagnosed at 15. It's a humid night right now and I'm not feeling great :(
My good news:
I recently started receiving Acupuncture as treatment for my RA. I've tried just about every pharmaceutical and I must say that acupuncture made me feel better than I have in years! I also tried elimination diets. I stopped eating eggs and notice how my joints flare as soon as I eat something containing eggs.
Have any of you tried other forms of alternative medicine / diets that have helped control your condition? I'm very curious and would like to explore more types of treatments.
