Alternative Treatments For Rheumatic Disease
Exercise: Get precise advice from your primary doctor or mineral metabolism specialist, because your type may need more than exercise. In general though, bone, like muscle, gets stronger with use. So weight bearing exercise (walking, running) can strengthen back (spine) and leg bones. Weight training can help bone and muscle strength in those areas and in the arms.
Complementary: Use of omega-3's can be very helpful in bipolar disorder; 4-6 g/day epa can decrease number and intensity of relapses. Existing studies use this in combination with typical mood stabilizing agents, though -- not a stand-alone treatment. Lithium is the most "natural" of mood stabilizing agents. Homeopathy with a very experienced homeopathic psychiatrist may be of use -- not stand-alone, though.See 1 more doctor answer

Possibly: AD is an incurable degenerative disease of the brain. There have been some studies using medium chain triglycerides to 'feed' the brain(Axona). Recently a study supported the use of hi dose Vit E. Other supplements include Vinpocetine and phosphatidyl serine. Be careful even with supplements and 'natural' products- they maybe unsafe or have interactions with other products or medications.
None really: Nothing other than surgery has proven to be effective for cataracts. Surgery is so highly successfuly that there is nothing to be worried about. Alternative supplements, maneuvers and medications are of no benefit.
Adjuncts only: If you ignore surgery for melanoma, you will pay for your mistake with your life. If you are interested in vitamins, botanicals and so forth, remember these are only adjuncts. I am not sure I would accept some of therapies for advanced disease that give only a small survival advantage, but I would not pay a conspiracy or natural-medicine talker for telling me untruths. Be savvy.See 1 more doctor answer
