  11. Michelle Johnson says:

    Hello Dr. Sharma. My husband is dealing with a bad flare of his rheumatoid arthritis, after the loss of his mom, uncle and friends and our cabin in the mountains collapsed. Too much loss! Original flare was after a bad sunburn many years ago. It’s been somewhat manageable for him, but it is very very bad now in his hands (can’t grip, swollen, shiny looking skin). His neck and upper back are also bad. Working with diet, avoiding starchy/sugary, many green leafy veggies, and protein. That’s about all he eats. Has lost 35 lbs in the last 6 months after trying for over a year. Mostly avoids inflammatory oils. Using CBD, LDN, Hydroxycholorquine, takes seaminerals plus extra potassium at night (just started the extra potassium). His gut has always been his weak link.
    Anything else you can offer would be appreciated.

  20. Tom Waldemer says:

    Hi Doctor, I’ve had osteoarthritis in both wrists. 2 small surgery 5 months ago removed 2 small bones in left wrist and two large bones were fused. Resulted in weak burning and painful pointer & middle fingers and thumb. I cannot grasp with these fingers. So this month I had carpal tunnel surgery to relieve pressure on the nerve going to these fingers as well.
    WHAT ARE THE BEST REMEDY(ies) for me?
    And how do I purchase? I am a builder and need to work.
    Thank you! Tom
