I have bad arthritis in my hands, normally kept at bay with swimming. I am taking drugs but I'm now opening to some alternative options. Any advice would be appreciated, thank you everyone.

Since you are taking medications, I would strongly talking with your MD or a Naturopathic doctor to assess which options would be safe for you since many of the "classic" arthritis supplements do interact with medications. That being said, there are many really effective options out there in terms of nutrients such as omega 3s and natural anti-inflammatory herbs and supplements. I personally believe that dietary changes towards a more anti-inflammatory diet will be a great starting point!
Arthritis--- both osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis can be treated with naturopathic modalities such as acupuncture, herbs, dietary changes, and lifestyle adjustments. You may want to build a great community of health care practitioners around you: naturopathic medicine, osteopathy, chiropractics,, and massage therapy can also be of great benefit to improve your quality of life and function of your hands!
