I was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis 2 years ago. It started in my right index finger and the second toe and balls of each foot. For the first year and a half, I took prescription anti-inflammatories.
A year ago, when fatigue started to get the better of me, I started a course of weekly acupuncture, which I followed for 6 months. This helped immensely to reduce the inflammation and joint pain as well as improve overall vitality. I also took 2x 1000 mg of fish oil with omega 3 twice daily. I also began to meditate and visualize a control center with which I could turn my immune system up and down as required.
I haven’t taken any anti-inflammatories for four months now. My toes, although still curled under, haven’t got any worse and are not swollen or uncomfortable. My index finger knuckle joint is a third of the size it was and I can almost make a fist again. I have also in past weeks experimented with reiki and find the results so far in energy and vitality very good.
