This is what happened next…
I kept an open mind and tried every alternative treatments and medicine out there. I tried massages, cupping, acupuncture, various herbs and more. Most of it didn't make a difference.
But I didn't give up.
I delved deeper into support groups, researches and recent studies on RA root causes. I pushed through the pain and worked hard at doing my own research.
One thing that kept popping up in my research was this ayurvedic herb.
It had been in use in India for thousands of years. And was starting to become famous in the West. It was said to be a natural anti-inflammatory and I met countless people in my RA support group who swore by it.
This herb is turmeric root.
So I started researching on the best turmeric supplements out there.
I tried them for at least 1-2 months before reviewing if there were any improvements in my condition. I went through oh-so-many bottles and brands of Turmeric out there.
Before I found one that was promising.
Just after 1 month of using this one, my mobility improved by a lot.
I needed less and less warm up to get my joints going in the morning and had less serious flare ups in the first month.
So I continued using it for the next month. And I couldn't believe it! I needed my cane and walker much less than I did.
The morning swelling in my joints went down and my joints weren't as stiff.
I started to feel comfortable doing my chores around the house.
Even my husband commented on how active I was and that I look a lot happier lately.
That's when I realised that, I "was" feeling a lot better.
I was just too scared to admit to myself how much better I was feeling after being disappointed so many times.
