I’m currently taking prednisone for arthritis pain.
Q. Dear Terry, “I’m currently taking prednisone for arthritis pain. I also have overactive bladder (OAB), which the prednisone seems to irritate. I’m miserable - is there a simple program I can follow? Thank you.” — Barbara M., Houston, TX
A. Dear Barbara, I believe I can offer you some alternative nutritional options. However, I encourage you to discuss the use of dietary supplementation with your physician, as they may have additional input regarding a supplement regimen.
I would first recommend trying a combination of high-absorption curcumin with boswellia, DLPA and nattokinase to address the pain you are experiencing. Each ingredient works in a slightly different manner to get you comfortable as quickly as possible. I advise taking 1-2 capsules of this blend three times a day.
You may also want to consider adding a combination of boswellia, curcumin, Indian gooseberry and devil’s claw to your daily regimen. These four ingredients support the structure and smooth functioning of the joints, as well as provide additional relief of inflammation and pain. I recommend taking 1 capsule of this blend twice daily.
Regarding your bladder issues, I highly recommend trying a clinically-studied botanical extract that will help strengthen bladder muscles and increase bladder capacity. It is made from angelica (Angelica archangelica) – the angels’ herb – which grows in Iceland. This plant has been used in folk medicine for centuries, and it was cultivated in the Nordic countries during the Middle Ages. Start with two tablets per day – one in the morning and one at night – for the first few days, and then drop down to one tablet per day.
