Hi Doc, i've been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis a few years ago i stopped my meds which included methotrexate (via injection), folic acid, indomethacin, chloroquine and salazopyrin, when i fell pregnant last year, my son is 8 months and still breastfeeding now and then, i don't want to go back on those meds it made me feel really bad,i read up on all the side-effects it's shocking the doctors don't inform you of that, i feel great without the meds except for the occasional aches, pains and stiffness, i want to go to a homeopath for more natural meds, is this advisable? is there any supplements you can advise me to use??? Thanx

if you address the immune system with herbs like Rhodiola, address any gut problems and possible causes previous inflammations you should get the best results. you can use FoodState immune complex - 3 tabs daily (it contains beta-sitosterols to modulate the immune system .
you can consult for a practitioner in your area.
