Can rheumatoid arthritis be cured naturally?

I am looking for pain relief from rh. athritis, but have recently (March) had a nontraumatic brain bleed and am hesitant to take NSAIDs. Medications like low dose Gabapentin had not relieve he pain and have induced tremendous fatigue. What can you suggest?

Rheumatoid arthritis cannot be cured but there are different methods for relieving.

I suggest using topical creams that can be rubbed directly onto the skin to help ease painful joints such as Voltaren gel.

I recommend a healthy diet and regular exercise.

I suggest warm showers and warm compresses for relieve.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
