Looking for natural remedies to help with my arthritis

I have been suffering since I was in my early 20's with some sort of arthritis and have been diagnosed with possible psoriatic arthritis without the skin psoriasis. Whatever it is, I have some kind of arthritis and it is affecting my hands, feet, and had my right hip replaced 2 years ago. I am on some "fancy" drugs and don't see how they are helping. I want to go a natural route but don't have time or money to invest in all kinds of naturopaths who want to take my money and try all kinds of "weirdish" things on me. Can anybody suggest anything?

Hi bfree2express,
Thanks for your question and for finding EmpowHER. I'm sorry you are having to deal with arthritis. I'm sure it must be frustrating for you. As a writer who sits at a computer all day, and wonders if she should visit a doctor about pains in joints, etc. I can empathize with your condition.
You don't have a very high opinion of naturopaths, do you? funny.
I found the following resources for you, hope it helps:
Coping with Arthritic Pain
Self Help Tips for Psoriatic Arthritis
Alternative Therapies for Psoriatic Arthritis
You also may want to check out an arthritis group on EmpowHER! Arthritis Group
Good luck and let us know if you find something that works for you. Your experience may help someone else with a similar condition.
