Reactive Arthiritis

I have reactive arthiritis. The doc has cost me R17 000 so far and I still have 2 fingers with problems. I cant afford anymore doctors. And the latest pills the doc prescribed have side-effects like impotence, sudden death and could cause miscarriages for my wife. Is there anything " natural"  I can use to get rid of RA? Or over the counter maybe, something that does not have these type of side-effects? Will Athro-choice or gaurd work?

Hallo Dave
Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by an abnormal immune response - your body makes antibodies that attack your own joints ( also called an auto immune disease) Treatment is to suppress your immunity and the drugs they use are sometimes almost toxic. Athro choice won't really make a difference in your symptoms or the damage to the joints. Treatment is not only for the pain but to prevent joint damage. Read more on

There are supplements you can use to help your body ( but won't cure RA) See

You may not need to take high doses of medication all the time as RA tends to go into remission at times when you can cut down on some of the medications
