I am a 26 year old female and was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 4.5 years ago. Initially I was suffering a lot but with certain lifestyle changes and modifications in my routine I am much better now. I have problems in my hand fingers as Doctors say joints are intact but tissues have dislocated. My RA factor is 85 right now and I am taking harsingar decoction for 10 days now and experienced no unease or anything. But I have hypothyroidism too and I am on 125mcg a day. I read in some answers of yours that harsingar can have 'adverse' effects with thyroid medication. Could you please explain that a little and what else can I do to cure myself. Because I have done a lot to come down from 180 RA to 85 now. I want to cure it completely. Please suggest what else can be done. ( I am not on any allopathic medicine, never took any. I am on homeopathy that too is taken only once a week).

Dear Mamta
Do not take Lime stone in excess. Have you tried Hadjod and Boswellia capsules? have 1 capsule a day for 1 month. These are meant for Bones.
15 Mar 2017
But is it ok to Consume Lime Stone once a day....
15 Mar 2017
Dear Mamta
You can only have a pinch of food grade lime stone. If you take crude form, it may cause accumulation of stones in your body.
You can try Hadjod and Boswellia capsules.
For your menstrual problem, you can try Angelica Sinensis tincture, take 10 drops 2 times in a day and buy Caulophyllum tincture and have 5 drops 3 times in a day.
Have a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables. Avoid carbonated drinks, white sugar and white rice.
Detoxify your body at regular intervals.

Tankyou for your reply sir.
But the treatment is given for only diabetes.didn't tell any thing about RA factors treatment.
RA factors 12.4 is positive or negative?
If positive please advise me the treatment sir.

Dear Arun Kumar
Your RA factor is not so high. If it crosses 14 IU/ml or above, then it is considered as high levels.
You may have 1 Boswelia capsule every day. Take it for 15 days and see the results.
