Hi, i would like to know about this all natural juice name suppa, I have RA and oa, need to manage joints pains naturally. There is so much stuff out until you don't know what's good or not.
We : We are all wishing and hoping for the answer to arthritis. Since time began many people, both well-meaning and charlatans--have been claiming they have the answers. How will we know when it's actually true? It won't be because we or our friends took it and felt better. That's how quack cures get around and make money. Just feeling better can happen because of own inner ability to manage pain and feel healthy in spite of illness. We all have an "inner healer" that in science is referred to as the placebo effect. There is also the possibility that the symptoms waned or eased off on their own and taking the medicine or juice was a coincidence. Finally, many things improve on their own, although arthritis is not, unfortunately, one of them. So how will we know if suppa juice is the one? Science. We'll need to have well-designed and well-executed studies that show a true difference. Not just a perceived difference. So many of us suffer with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis (ra and oa) that we need to be sure it's not just wishful thinking or truly bad behavior on the part of the people that market these "cures". Is suppa supposed to change the course of arthritis or work more like an aspirin, temporarily relieving the pain. Either way, we need to careful placebo-controlled studies to be sure it's better than sugar water. I have some good news. The new medications for RA can truly change the course of the disease. They are in a sense that magic bullet we have been wishing for all these years. Methotrexate, enbrel, etc. Cannot cure the disease, but they can slow it. As a surgeon, i don't operate much on RA any more. We used to operate frequently on patients with severe joint damage. Those patients are uncommon in my office with these new drugs. The bad news is that we are not there yet with oa. And oa is the one that all of us get, like we all get grey hair. You'll know when someone figures out how to change the course of oa. You'll know because a nobel prize will be handed out and it will be a truly amazing day. In the meantime hang in there. Remember our grandparents with their "rheumatism" and the spirit they showed. You have it too. You'll be just fine. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
