What I tried and didn't work for my arthritis

What I tried and didn't work for my arthritis

Here is what I tried and does not work for me:

  1. Common RA drugs
    1. Including the ones used for treating gout, for example, Milurit (Allopurinol)
    2. Most painkillers like aspirin, ibuprofen paracetamol or ketoprofen. They are worst in the long run than the pain itself, because your body will have to detox after using them and they are really bad for your guts. Read the side effect they put on the leaflets They are more common than you think and sometimes hard to notice!
  2. Vegan diet
    1. I read “How not to diet” book by dr Greger and under that influence, I turned vegan because I hoped it may also heal RA.
    2. This made my symptoms better but not entirely and from time to time I had really bad relapses
    3. The vegan diet is however great and makes you feel stronger. I am still eating a plant-based diet.
  3. Mega vitamin supplementation
    1. Inspired by a book “doctor yourself” by Andrew Saul I tried mega vitamin doses of niacin, vitamin C, D3, potassium.
    2. In fact, I felt worse after each pill of niacin and the best after supplementing potassium with high doses of sodium-potassium.
    3. I learned by experience that high doses of vitamin C do work in most acute diseases (I will explain later) and lower inflammation, but it is a quick fix for lesser problems.
  4. Moringa supplement
    1. I watched a video on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97OU08TlZkQ and tried this moringa stuff in various doses (including 1-2 heaped tablespoons a day). No effect. Total scam!
  5. Intermittent fasting: One Meal A Day (OMAD) Vegan diet
    1. I was eating vegan, but still had pain in my feet. I heard about intermittent fasting and decided to eat once a day. I ate every day as much as I could between 19-20 and that's all.
    2. In 180 days I lost 20 pounds, and my body mass stabilized at 74 kilograms (163 pounds).
    3. I definitely felt better and stronger and my RA was weaker, but from time to time it was really severe for 1-2 days.
  6. Countless vitamin mixes, and “super magical roots” supplements
    1. countless multivitamins from all possible producers.
    2. Even vilkacora, ginseng, rhodiola. You name It - I ate it. Not much effect.
    3. Iodine supplementation (that actually did a good job of me feeling better for a week)
  7. Healing with cold (Wim Hof Method)
    1. I tried healing my RA with snow, ice baths, 3 minute cold showers every day. It works, but temporary. Like painkillers with no side effects. Not a permanent solution, but a quick fix after a bad morning that lasts for about 2-3 hours.
  8. Breathing exercises (Wim Hof Method)
    1. Hyperventilation also works temporary, so you can do that to feel better, but as with any painkiller, the effect wears off after a few hours.
  9. Healing with heat (saunas)
    1. It's a quick fix that can last up to 1-8 hours. It is nice and works sometimes long but requires a lot of time every day and still is just temporary. Unfortunately the more you spent in saunas, the lesser the effect in my experience. It's like RA is adapting…
  10. Alcohol (yes its sounds like a bad idea  - and it is one)
    1. You feel better and pain-free after alcohol only because it disables your pain receptors, not because it heals you. When you get sober after 24 hours arthritis strikes back with double force. 
  11. Exercising despite pain
    1. “You should exercise even if it hurts to improve RA” … those words could be said only by a theoretician doctor who never had RA himself …
    2. I reached 70 push-ups daily despite the pain in my wrists. It didn’t stop the pain. It made it worse. I strongly dis-advice using any limbs that hurt you.
    3. I learned that pain is just a symptom and a signal from your body, that you should stop doing whatever you are doing.
    4. At some point in my RA I stopped all exercises because each time I exercised the pain only got worse and I couldn’t move after that. I ended with almost 2 years without any exercises before finally curing myself.
  12. Eliminating gluten
    1. Works but to a point where there is no further improvement.
  13. Eliminating all possible grains (Thanks to “No Pain No Grain” book by Dr Peter Osbourne)
    1. This was the best improvement, so you may try that.
    2. It’s quite easy to follow. However, some pain persisted in my feet. If you do not have a severe RA this may actually help you, but it's not the complete ultimate guide.
  14. Raw Vegan Diet
    1. As it seems - you can eat raw and vegan with no grains at all but still eat the wrong kind of stuff and will have RA symptoms. They are much weaker and go away faster, but still… The ingredients are the key.
    2. Strong detoxifying procedures followed by a precise diet is ultimately the long-term it depends on what precisely you eat when you eat, how much and what is the quality of your food. You can be very surprised by the things you don't know about the food you eat.
