Health Update - Finding Cure for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Your SEO optimized title page contents First I'd like to begin, by confirming that Lucas is a healthy growing boy!!  I was worried that by taking Enbrel throughout my pregnancy and breastfeeding may have compromised his immune system, but he has not gotten sick once yet and from his check ups, he is doing GREAT!  Yeah for healthy baby! Also Yeah to Otis Research Centre for providing me with research info.

As for myself, I've cut out gluten, eggs, and mushrooms and have found this helpful with minimizing inflammations. Of course my right wrist is a constantly sore and inflamed a bit and I've grown now to accept it as my norm.

I'd like to explore how deep breathing, relaxation, and mindfulness can help with calming my auto immune / nervous system.  Perhaps my body still thinks I'm in a threatening situation. If you know my growing up, everywhere I turned, it was unsafe. I think my body is still triggered and needs to somehow know, that I am now safe.  This will take time and effort. 

To reserve time to nurture and love myself is quite a difficult task for a mom, part-time accountant, part-time bookstore partner, wife, and friend. However, I do believe this is important.  Being on the go go go all the time is NOT healthy!

Perhaps going to the SPA would be therapeutic! :) 


  1. There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis. Medications can reduce inflammation in your joints in order to relieve pain and prevent or slow joint damage.

  2. I believe there is a cure. How the disease was caused is unknown and like wise the cure is unknown. But what is unknown doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
