Several things!: Omega-3 fatty acis, calcium, vitamin d3 and zinc! these will help in food or as supplements. Stay as active as possible, and avoid teraumatic activities, ie. Running, jumping, or contact sports. Cycling, yoga, pilates, circuit weight training are better activities!

Resubmit: Your question is difficult to understand. Do you mean to ask about side effects of treatments for RA or which treatments are available for problem disease? You need to speak with a/your rheumatologist about these issues.

Further research: In general there is not enough scientific evidence to prove that complimentary alternative medicine therapies are safe/effective for rheumatoid arthritis. Some mind-body therapies and supplements may be good adjunctive treatments (could possibly decrease pain in joints) but especially dietary supplements should be discussed with your doctor for potential interactions with conventional medicine.

There are none!: I know of no alternative rx. There may non-main steam therapies, such as the tetracyclines, but they have well published studies. I believe most, if not all jia children can be remitted with our current arsenal!
