Hi Steph

Yes Chinese acupuncture and medicine works very well on me its my saviour.  I just finished a course called Genome Healing based on Quantum Physics its about rebalancing every organ and cell both the masculine and feminine.  Just finished a passive detox over several months with a wonderful chinese healer I see.  Inflammation is disappearing in my hand and wrists nearly normal, my body is taking a lot of food.  Back on track - released emotions of fear of working again and just started applying for jobs.  I swear releasing emotions - releases inflammation along with good food and lots of happy thoughts.  Now the trick if something stressful comes along I do not have the luxury of it must turn it around to something positive. Good luck in your healing x

I want to try Chinese acupuncture too. Tell me: has it worked for you? How are you now?

Hi All,

I have been visiting this forum since I read Barbara's book and learnt a lot from it.  I would like to inform everyone that I am totally recovered from this arthritis nightmare so there is light at the end of tunnel!

My journey started in April, 2011, when I was bed bound from Reactive Arthritis.  Never knew this name before.  Tried many things, including methods offer by Barbara.  Very appreciated for her advice.  Even more appreciative that I found someone recovered from it and so could I.

I did food sensitivity tests, and follow the rules to recover gradually from food sensitivities.  Still I have many food sensitivities so the process was slow.  One major forward step was that I took the advice of Dr. Tom Borody and did the fecal transplant.  After this I realized that only three food sensitivities left: gluten, dairy and soy.  That was such a relief.  It transformed my life - enable me feel confident enough to take on a major career change in another country.

Fecal transplant did not solve all problems.  After a few months more diarrhea started to appear and it seemed I was getting back to the old situation.  With luck (recommended by friend's friend) I discovered Kerfir.  Daily taking of Kefir, plus daily taking of enzyme fermentation products (Kibi Enzyme) turned the situation around and I started to feel better again.  Diarrhea stopped too.  Not only feeling better, I found I was no longer sensitive to any food.

This was about one year ago.  I have been thriving since.

I am so grateful that I received so many helpful advice and supports along my journey of recovery and wish you also will.

You can make it.

As it is difficult to get to this forum as there is a firewall in the country I am in.  I will try to visit the forum as much as possible and offer my support to anyone in need.

Jenny

Hi Amanda, I'm a newbie as they say but loved reading your post. You are clearly working your socks off to beat RA and I'm sure you'll get there soon.
I, like you think stress is a big factor, all my life I e been aware I don't handle stress (mainly work or people type) very well. I remember reading something on a traditional Chinese medicine article (TCM ) that not handlling stress well is a symptom of one of your organs being out of balance. Now I know little about TCM but I thought it was an interesting concept and one I chalked up on my list to do in my quest to cure myself. From what little I understand of TCM there does seem to be some truth in it. A basic example is a sign of alcoholism is weak heart organ ( not really a weak heart) this shows as a red swollen nose. Also I do believe in accupincture and meridian lines for aromatherapy etc.
I do hope you find the answer to your question. I have used reiki myself - takes a bit of practice to do yo yourself n you have to be attuned but very relaxing and healing. Also, I am using a free demo by holysync to help me drop into deep meditation- check out on the Internet. hope that helps.
If you get chance I would love you to read my introduction post.
Health and happiness
Steph

Hi my name is steph I was diagnosed in feb 2014 with RA.
I decided that if I cud make my body 100% healthy in every other way then it cud only be a good thing. Right from the start I wholeheartedly believed if I could get sick I could better. I immediately began researching and addressing my life. This is what I did
1. Fasted for a couple days
2. Elimination diet
3. Introduced probiotucs
4. Recognised I had candida and keaky gut
5. Followed the amazing Dr Jeff Mccombs candida plan- so much love for this guy and his program. Worth every penny n worked within couple of weeks began to feel amazing within 6 month was clear of candida.
Also took supplements and food to heal leKy gut
6. Practiced reiki daily
By Christmas 2014 I was in remission and never needed to go on any meds as I persuaded my consultant to let me try natural for a while, which she did and it worked.
However! Early 2015 I had a lot of stress. I also abruptly stopped taking high dose vutamin C and caught a chest infection. My RA returned within days of stopping taking the vit C I think this n stress were the main factors but then the chest infection, antibiotics took things to a whole new level. I won't go into detail as I could write a book but basically all joints above my waist didn't work. I was unable to do anything and I mean anything - coukdnt even press buttons on TV remote control, get into bed, take lid off a pen, dress, shower, the list goes on. On the positive side although I had some slight swelling in lower body it was only on occasion in knee or ankle or hip.
This flare lasted for months and really took me to the edge. I was once so full of fight but I will admit I was totally destroyed by RA for a while, both emotionally, mentally and physically.
I tried everything I did last year but with no results. So, I started taking methotrexate, steroid injections x2 took Nac which is brill for stiffness and moducare which helps inflammation and even on Low Dose Naltrexone!
As I began to feel better I continued my quest- still determined to be disease free, pain free, drug free.
Along the way I have made several leaps- discovered the reason Ive suffered with constipation for 43 yrs is because I struggle to digest protein. I eat lots of greens and take an enzyme which works a treat.
I have treated my son for candida which has much improved his life and thus removed a big stress from mine.
I really feel/hope I'm on the final hurdle now. I am qualified in many complimentary therapies such as EFT and so have experience with many tools that will help me.
My next three steps are;
 to get the ALCAT test and rotate food. I feel I have sensitivities as I seem to flare when I eat processed food. Over the last month I have also had mild stomach pain after eating- perhaps the naproxen caused damage although I always took Lansaprazole at the same time to protect my gut.
 To continue meditating using holysync 15 minute demo recording- it uses frequencies to easily and quickly get you into a deep meditation. This with reiki seems to be helping but I'm interested i the meditation work Barbara has done and defiantly think I need to heal mentally, emotionally and spiritually as well as physically.
To get off the methotrexate and Liw Dose Naltrexone. I have reduced naproxen down to 250 mg once a day and no longer have steroid injections,
Well I can't wait to get started- I've already looked at food families and have tried to follow a 4 day rotation to get me into the swing of things ready for post Alcat test. Funny as within a few days of not eating same foods every day my wet nose immediately stopped being wet n drippy after food- think I read that's a sign of sensitivities Huh
I'm really looking forward to sharing ideas with everyone on this fab forum to. I am truely thankful that we are all disease free!! Love and light to all , steph

I have been working on sending my RA into remission for 3 and half years now. I gave up my drugs 3 and half years ago to go on the ALCAT rotation diet.  I spent 2 and half years on the rotation diet.  I gave it up because I found that the test would show a really bad response if you got tested in a week under stress and that my body in particulars food intolerances could easily change.  It was becoming quite stressful after 2 and half years.  I was doing so well for 6 months, I do follow more a paleo type diet but I am having a terrible flare up this winter, sick little boy with asthma, big changes in life separation etc.

 My question is once you heal your gut if you have times in your life with a bit of stress will you not get inflammation from the arthritis? or are you always prone to it.  I find my body is so sensitive that if I have a few weeks of stress, even though I meditate and pull myself back in line think positive again.  The effects of stress impact my digestion for months causing sensitive's and inflammation. Yet other times on this journey I have gone through times of hardly no inflammation and food intolerances thinking I have healed my gut.  I know Barbara you once did tell me I had the worst sensitive's you have come across so I guess I am going to take a little longer to heal than some people.  Thanks Amanda

Hi Kylie,

Chances are something in the Keratin Hair Straightening Treatment you had did trigger your flair-up.  It might have been not the keratin itself, but some other added chemical.  If you can avoid any more of these hair treatments, that would be good!  Yes, sometimes other clients have told me about how hair treatments have caused arthritis flair-ups for them too.  Sometimes the trigger is a perm, sometimes it is having their hair colored, now you are added hair straightening to the list.

Hi Barbara,

I guess I should have thought about this but I had my hair straightened a couple of days ago with keratin and it may be a co-incidence but I have a massive flare!!! This is so rare since big flares don't happen for me these days??? If I think about it I haven't had Keratin treatment for well over a year and my health hasn't been that bad. Barbara have you ever heard of this with some of your other clients?  I am now considering shaving my head!!!

Hope you are well.
