Hi everyone, I find it great how there are forums like these where people with similar experiences can meet and share their experiences and are understood. But I find myself wondering as I read people's stories, how there don't seem to be any conversations about healing. Mostly it's about what meds people take. This is important too, of course, but I would love to also shift our focus and create a stronger healing energy together, and not only focus on the medication and pain.

I am getting back to meditation and yoga. for many years I meditated a lot but I've gotten busy/lazy but I do find when I make the time to meditate it does help to deal with pain. And frustration and some depression. As well, I'm trying to get back to yoga for stretching and for breathing which also helps. I want to join a hot yoga class but I find the memberships for hot yoga are quite expensive. A few years ago I took a practicum in holistic - mind/body/spirit - healing at a hospital and that knowledge has also helped a lot with pain. One more thing, hypnosis. I've been hypnotized for pain and I studied hypnosis and use it as a self help for a number of things including pain. All of these mind/body experiences help me through some bad days which I'm happy for but I don't see it as a 'cure'. But reading some of the very painful experiences by others on this site, I'm thankful that I'm doing okay and think the mind/body experience has a lot to do with it.
We are mind, body, emotions and spirit. When one is off balance, so are the others. Since this diagnosis I have taken a hard look at resentments, anger and stress. Some are very old ones and some are new resentments. I am trying to clean up my side of the street, making amends and practicing forgiveness.
Ra is an autoimmune disease we don't know what causes it I'm one of nine children and I'm the only one who has it. But I'm a very spiritual person,and very happy. I don't work anymore so I do lead a stress-free life now so I don't think that it always has to do with the mind and the body it can help but I think it's what you're dealt with or what you've inherited we're all imperfect and we all have diseases and do the best to manage it, that's my thoughts on it anyways. 😉😁😄
I don't work any more, but I remain active,I crochet items for a gift shop on a historical farm site,plus for family,I am an avid reader,book club, exercise every day,plus at hospital gym twice a week. Watch my nutrition. I am also dealing with pulmonary issues due to RA. But I stay active,pray and love life. Today I turned 64. Depending just on meds is not an answer for me.
Hi I think people are mentioning the medication that helps them because there is no real cure for RA. How wonderful it would be if there was! Surely we would all know about natural healing if it was possible? I would love to hear success stories - thank you for your enthusiasm I wish it could work and we can stop the nasty chemicals we take
