I have suffered with Rheumatoid Arthritis since 2004 (age 42 then) mainly being on Methotrexate and at times Prendisone. Eight years into the condition I had many flare-ups and took large doses of combination fish and krill oil five years into the condition which did help take the worst edge off the inflammation and at times reduce it quite significantly. Stress and too much consumption of animal fats would contribute to inflammation.
By 2012 I was experiencing nausea for three to four days after taking the weekly dose of Methotrexate, which was simply just more impact on my life. I read on this site (I think) about a Harvard University trial of French Organic Chicken Cartilage tablets. There was success according to the study with some patients going into a kind of remission.
I immediately ordered several bottles from the supplier in the US (but now available now Perth, Australia) and started taking it. Within about 6 weeks I noticed my symptoms reducing enabling me to trial going off the Methotrexate. Today in 2015 I am virtually symptom free with returned use of my limbs, hands and no swelling in my feet and knees! The active ingredient in the Chicken Cartlage tablets apparently is type 2 collagen. I ran out of the Chicken Cartilage tablets about 6 months ago and haven't gotten around to ordering any more. I am largely still symptom free!
I stopped going to the Rhuematologist about 6 years ago as I didn't feel they were listening with regards to the moderate success of the fish oil...no point in spending $$ on someone who didn't appear to want to listen to how and what I was doing about the condition.
I would strongly recommend any sufferer of RA to give this a go! I have had my life returned to me!
