    I'm a 78 year old man with RA. Please Help!
    I'm a published author and because I've come down with rheumatoid arthritis I can hardly type anymore! I've moved to the desert, "hot climate" I've taken every medication made and still my wrists are swollen and sore! Has anyone found something that might help? Thank you in advance.

    Hi Robert

    My Mother had a horrible problem with RA until she purchased and read the following book:

    The New Arthritis Breakthrough by H. Scammell.

    This book presented some very good information, but it was especially groundbreaking for my Mother in that it spoke directly to an ANTIBIOTIC THERAPY for RA.

    It wasn't easy finding a doctor that would work with my Mom, but in about 2 years her RA was almost completely reversed.

    I hope you read the book and I hope it helps you as much as it helped my Mother!

    Good luck!

    Mark

    Meanwhile get some voice recognition software, some compression gloves, and sit back and dictate.

    I can't help with the RA but I have seen this advertised plenty of times and it looks like great VR software.

    I wear compression gloves (no finger tips) on my arthritic hands (including 2 old fractures that are all gnarly), and when it's cold enough, I put winter gloves over them. I cut the finger tips off the winter gloves. I wash my dishes by hand --- that hot water feels SO GOOD.
