A. Hello there. I've had RA for over 12 years. My acupuncturist, who is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and also an RN and PA, integrates Eastern and Western medicine and I trust her implicitly. We have tried all sorts of different ways to balance my immune system; laser,ozone, UV etc., which have all helped. Contrary to the above report, acupuncture, massage, LOTS of supplements, enzymes and vitamins and a nightshade-free, citrus-free diet have worked remarkably for me and saved me from steroid-pushing rheumatologists. I still ride horseback and do almost everything I used to do before RA, except anything jarring like aerobics or jogging. Most days I don't even take pain meds. It takes time and trying different things to balance your over-active immune system, but it sure beats the alternative. Staying off sugar and dairy helps a lot, too, but I'm too weak to give it up totally. There are very good integrative doctors out there. Keep looking until you find one that will work with you. Goo
