Easing Canine Arthritis
In our April story “Winner’s Circle,” we learned the ways, including the use of alternative medicine, in which Westminster Dog Show participants are pampered into performing their best. On our blog at www.energytimes.com, we asked readers what natural steps they take to keep their faithful friends healthy and happy; here is one response.
I use natural supplements to help my dog with arthritis. She has been on them a year now. She is more energetic and pain-free than ever. I also feed her all-natural food without fillers or corn products.

Natural Help for Sjögren’s
[Regarding our April Malady Makeover story, “Desiccating Disorder”]: I really enjoyed your article on Sjögren’s syndrome. I, too, have this disorder.
I appreciated the information on diet and supplements. Many physicians are reluctant to tell patients to try using diet to improve their health, especially by encouraging them to eat anti- inflammatory foods or to eliminate gluten even in the absence of celiac disease. I went gluten-free and felt much better.
My biggest discovery for reducing the fatigue has been adding a D-ribose supplement, 5 grams three times a day intially and then twice a day. It has made an incredible improvement.
Thanks again for a great article and insightful information.

Complementary medicine has helped a number of people with Sjögren’s, in which damage caused by an overactive immune system leads to dry eyes and mouth, fatigue and other symptoms. To learn more, contact the Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation at www.sjogrens.com.
