At age 50 I was diagnosed with RA. I was unable to climb stairs due to the swelling in my hips. Vitamin D helped reduce the pain. I also took glucosimine, probiotics, Omega 3 fish oil. I did improve. 3 years later, I added Essiac tea, I am off all antiimflamatories!!! I was told by 3 doctors that I would not be able to walk the 5 miles daily again as I did prior to getting sick. I have no pain and I am walking 5 miles six days a week.
