In brief: Not likely.

Apparently, these are antibodies to cyclic citrullinated protein antibodies (anti-ccp) that are often seen in the blood of rheumatoid arthritis patients.
Their significance in RA is questionable at best, and they may not be directly involved with it. Having said this it is unlikely there is medicine with any affect on the levels of this antibody.

In brief: NOTHING NOT KNOWN!

Increasing your intake of 3-omega fatty acids visa vie flax seed oil or fish oil (2g/day), exercise within tolerance, low gflycemic diet, 2000-4000iu vit d3 are the best collection of "holistic" medicine.
Their is no alternative in treating a potentially severe disease such as ra, which a high ccp antibody suggests.
