Finding Cure for RA with Natural Remedies (cont.) - Natural Path Update

Hello!!! So it's been a couple months since I've provided an update pertaining to the healing of this Rheumatoid Arthristis auto immune yucky illness.

Here's a summary of events.
2005 - Diagnosed with RA
           I've tried methotrexate, plaquinil, sulphasalazine, and now on Enbrel (1 injection every 2 weeks)
2007 - Trip to China for 4 months and RA went into remission
2010 - Pregnant while on Enbrel

Here we are in year 2011 and the birth of my baby has given me a reason beyond myself to be healthy and seek a cure for this disease.

In march I tried Acupunture to treat the inflamed joints and it was useless; rather it made my joints worse!
The chinese medical practitioner aslo recommended me herbal medication; but did not email me the ingredients as I asked, so I gave up on him.

In April, I booked my self in to see a Natural Path. - He booked me in for a blood test and below are my results, which I just got today. Surprise suprise! I'm allergic to my favorite foods - so weird.
Basically, the numbers to the left indicate the number of antibodies my body produces to fight the particular food allergen - for example EGGS

My body has developed 2472 antibodies to fight EGGS. The normal level should be only 111.
Taking a look at the number of  foods that are in the avoid category, no wonder why my immune system is on overdrive! (by the way this is only page 1, the entire report is 4 pages)


Additional Supplements presribed by Natural Path
I have never popped so many pills in my life; but for the sake of healing I will.  So here goes:

  1. Rehmannia & Scrophularia Herbal Supplement (2 pills, 3 times /day)
  2. Curcumin SAP antioxidant (1 pill, 3 times / day)
  3. Recovery SAP probiotics (1 pill / day)
  4. EGCG SAP ultra antioxidant (1pill, 3 times / day)
  5. Omega - D3 Liquid (1 tsp, 2 times / day)
In addtion, I am continuing with Enbrel injection twice a month.

The Natural Path doctor reassured me that the supplements will not harm my baby; rather be very good for him too.

Next Action: continue with Enbrel twice / week, supplements per above for 1 month, try my best to stick to this new diet


  1. Don't forget the mind/body connection. Don't stress yourself out. I can't wait to get my results for my testing. Do you feel relieved now that you have a definite list?

  2. Yup definately there is a mind body connection: I just wrote a post on: Psychoneuroimmunology

  7. My friends I share with you. f you're experiencing your first really bad backache, you're probably panicking a little about the pain and its implications — what if it's cancer? What if it never goes away? My first piece of advice is, relax. Low back pain is very common. About 80% of American adults will miss work at some point because of it. And most of the time, it's neither permanent nor serious: 95% of backaches go away within six weeks, with no specific treatment. Following are 10 essential things to know about dealing with a bad back.
