Index for FAQ's about Ankylosing Spondylitis
Hi I am a 38 year old female diagnosed with AS and IBD approx 5 years ago. My first symptoms appeared at age 16, with lower back problems, mainly inflamation in the SI joints. As I got older bowel function turned to colitis, and I referred myself to a rheumatologist after all other doctors shrugged their shoulders. I had been on Lodiene and sulfazalazine(which made me terribly anemic, fatigued) Now I am on Vioxx which helps with the pain, and ultram,for pain, I do not take any nutritional supplements, because I have never found any regime to help. My diet is poor, as in alot of carbs. Please advise me where to start if you could.
I'm looking for more info on dealing with A.D.D. using natural foods and herbs instead of taking Ritalin. Is there anything out there on this subject?
How do we get her [a daughter with ADD] to eat the more nutritional foods when she doesn't even like to eat at all? And any type of vitamins would be hard as she doesn't like to take anything that resembles meds. It's a force-feeding session. Any tips?
I have recently taken my son off of Ritalin. Could you please tell me the best vitamins and minerals to give him?
Flax and seafood, OK, how much is enough for a 7 year old? And how much for adults?
