arthritis

Have you considered acupuncture? I myself have not had it but my dog who I consider part of the family, has arthritis. My regular vet seemed to look very depressed when he took x ray and gave me the results. I know him well enough to know he didn't want to say what he was really thinking. The end! That night I got on computer and wrote this local forum about pets asking if anyone had dogs with arthritis. Sure enough this lady suggested I go see this doctor who deals mainly in acupuncture. I was desperate. I visited him and he said he would advise to give it try. I have been going for four weeks now and the dog is not walking or running but he is able to continue to move on his own. and what is truly amazing. He had cataracts. They are gone. He now looks out the car window when I am driving. Before he just laid on the seat and looked to the floor. call me crazy if you want but when you really want help you will try anything. I am certainly grateful as I now feel I am going to go for acupuncture myself. the doctor moves like young person and says he does it to himself. You think he would admit it if it didn't work? If there is life why not work with what you got? The docs here in US don't know everything. More and more people are looking to other countries for what they have to offer.

Do not dare dismiss prayer. That to me is highest in my life. So very often I have not taken time and wonder why I feel so upset. If I give God His time He just seems to make the day one I can handle. Please take time to meditate and 'cast your care on HIm' If you can just admit too much for you, He will answer in His own way. I so often prayed for my crippled cousin to be able to walk. I had to accept it wasn't my decision. God only allowed for him to be able to have such a beautiful sense of humor and a love for everyone. No matter how people stared at him, it didn't bother him. One of God's mysterious ways. I am so thankful in my life I have seen God in action in many people's lives. I believe He allowed this so I would know He doesn't overlook anyone. I pray that God will give you strength to also accept and give you help in the cross you carry. I am also grateful believe in prayer.

I'm with In the Kitchen on this one....My cousin, a pastor of a UMC congregation in Texas, had severe pain in her hip and leg. Osteoarthritis, sciatica. Steroids and surgery were recommended by her specialists and she declined. After much prayer she went to an acupuncturist. She had to go weekly at first, and now is down to every other week. Eventually, Lord willing, it will be once a year for maintanance. She claims the pain is nearly 100% gone.
