Hello! My 58 year old husband came down with RA over 30 years ago via a STD. He had extensive foot surgery that has left him with fused toes and some deformity. He also has a lot of inflammation in his joints. He has been taking 400 mg ibuprofen 2 times a day for nearly 30 years. This is NOT good, and I want him to get off these. Yesterday he began a 60+ day regime of taking goats milk kefir (from the marvelous chucklinggoat.co.uk in Wales) to help balance out his gut. You mention Tumeric as an excellent anti-inflammatory to help with this inflammation. As we live in the Netherlands, we have access to many alternative remedies that are not available or allowed to be sold in the states. I have TreMedici Calypso that contains 171,00 mg along with Agaricus blazei murill extract, and other good things. This is a very high end expensive supplement I received when I was healing my cancer using the Budwig protocol at the 3-e Centre in Germany--the first holistic cancer clinic in Europe. I am wondering if he should take this? For 3 months in the winter I take one of these twice a day. I eagerly await your reply, and any other suggestions you might have for helping my husband heal. Many, many thanks, Cynthia Smith
