What are the most current helpful treatments available for these conditions, your disease? If you have an article, share it. If you have a treatment that works for you, share that too.
We will get better because we do have control on our overall health and can eliminate/reduce inflammation in our body. There is power in numbers. When we come together - we have power to overcome and move forward in good health. The more we know the more power we have!
Support and Understanding - Chronic illness is very much misunderstood by people that do not suffer from one, they just don't get it. People, even your family members, have difficulty wrapping their brains around these conditions/diseases. There are people that do understand and do experience similar symptoms - You are not alone and can get support and help from people that care.
PS: Conventional treatments for Autoimmune diseases and inflammatory conditions work for some, but really only treat the symptoms. It's easy to take a pill and continue with the day without a change. If this makes the pain go away, you think you are better. For a lot of us, our bodies need more and deserve more. We need to make a change and step up and do what our body requires of us to get better. We need to listen to our bodies and respond to our needs. It takes effort and requires motivation, will and faith in something more.
