    Rheumatoid Arthritis at an early age

    Hi Doctor,

    Hope this finds you well,

    I have been diagnosed with RA at the age of 26. I am currently under mild treatment although my condition is severe due to an allergic reaction to Methotrexate. Currently on Arcoxia and Predisone since March 2013 and a Specialist will only be available in August.

    I take x2 Predisone (5mg) per day and since March have gained 5kgs. Is there any ways to keep the weight off? My joints are severely affected and left foot is deformed so exercise is difficult.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    According to Tibb, Rheumatoid Arthritis is associated with Hot and Moist qualties. So avoidance of Hot and Moist foods like sugars, breads, pastas, butters, cheese etc is discouraged and eating more Cold and Dry foods like sour fruits, yogurt, legumes etc is encouraged. Regular sessions of wet cupping has been seen to provide massive relief in RA as seen in a study conducted in Egypt by numerous medical doctors "Immunomodulatory Effects of Bloodletting Cupping Therapy in Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis". I would encourage you to have wet cupping done by a registered practitioner in conjunction with the allopathic treatment you are currently receiving. Please see www.satibb.co.za for registered practitioners in your area

    Weight gain is a side effects of prednisone. Inquire with a personal trainer or biokineticist about exercises that you can do without adding pressure or strain to your foot

    All the best

    My apologies, I have not sent you product information. Tibb has 2 anti-inflammatory products available in store - Tibb Rumaflam and Anti-flam. They can be used together in Rheumatoid Arthritis. Another product called OARA is available from Wing's Herbal. This however is a practitioners product and only selected practitioners will have this in stock. Tissue salt combination for RA includes No's 3,4,5,9,10 and 16. This combination is sold as a powder from ATIFA registered consultants (www.atifa.co.za). The individual bottles of Natura TS tablets can be purchased from dischem, clicks and other health outlets with the exception of No 16.
