Treatment Issues

Acai Berry and green tea

  • By RosemaryOs66

    Hello all.

    I am a newbie and glad to find you.

    As a little background, I have always been diagnosed with psoriasis but not PSA till I was 55 years old. My sister always suffered a more severe case of psoriasis but does not have PSA—as far as we know, My arthritis jumped on me like gangbusters when I was taking BCG treatment for bladder cancer. After a few treatments, I could not walk down the hall without crawling or clutching the wall.

    I am much better now and only (comparatively) have milder flareups, limited mobility in fingers and bouts of severe pain in left and feet when I am immobile and especially at night.

    RA allows me to refuse certain therapeutic protocols because of my cancer history. Methotrexate gives me vaginal, yeast and gum infections. I was afraid of Leflunomide because of hair loss which is also in my history.

    So take Celebrex which I believe is of minimal effect. It is hard to tell.

    Lately, I have needed to make use of a cane because of aching and stiff legs.

    About acai berries, though. I use to take a green tea/acai berry supplement while I was working. It helped with energy and got me through the workday.

    Retired in May, got out of the habit of acai berry supplement. Yesterday, needing energy, I took 2 capsules and walked 3 miles without my cane and no pain during the night.

    Thanks as wonder if anyone has any further experience or knowledge on acai berry and green tea success?

    Thanks a bunch. Glad to have fellow PSA sufferers to talk to.

    Rosemary
