    It's my understanding that ginseng can be beneficial for many things, including living with a chronic illness like RA. You may want to consider consulting a licensed naturopathic doctor for help with supplements and other alternative treatments and if you're interested in supplementing your regular western meds, check out my post on alternative medicine.
