I'm a big believer in the natural way, especially after my recent experience with big pharma.... the main things I take are vit d, magnesium, b vitamins, dessicated liver like a body builder for my iron levels, and fish oil - because my brain is happier when I take it vs when I don't.

Sharon, like Danesa says: ''I use turmeric in my diet as well as take Curcumin'', I also eat curcumin in some recipes, but not much often so to can see actual results.

Chris, thank you, I'll checked these 3 too, I'm ordering from Tompson. But here have so many manufacturers of Vitamins, so I don't have any reasonable system of choosing and I'm curious for every personal experience.
By the way here we widely uses Greek yogurt like a probiotic.

Viki my friend was taken fish oil till her pregnancy, but she didn't liked the taste so the doctors told her that walnuts are from the same group. So if you needs from some more Omega 3 you can use them for a snack, but only in cases that you don't have allergy from nuts!!!

That is interesting about walnuts. My dog has had patellar luxation surgery on the one knee already and may need it on the other knee. She has lost a lot of cartilage in both knees and our vet wants her on Fish Oil as well as prescription Dasuquin.
She hates the fish oil even when it is mixed with canned food so we give her Flax Seed, but the vet says that it won't help to build cartilage.
Maybe walnut oil will help instead. I will have to do some research on that.

Chris, I do not recommend this! Walnuts are good for human brain, but not so much for the dogs. They definitely loves them, and the type which is native to my area is very taste for them. BUT some kinds of a walnuts are toxic for dogs. And wet or old nuts, are dangerous too. The small breed dogs often not chew them enough and can have tough to swallow them. Also nuts in general have a high fat content, so even if they are not toxic, they can still cause an upset stomach in some dogs.

I try to eat healthy but think that with added health issues, a few vitamins are necessary for me. I take a biotin supplement for my hair which is thinning and breaking due to thyroid/menopause. I've noticed a difference when I take it regularly. I also take vitamin B off and on.

I wish I would propose you some alternative, but unfortunately nothing different not come on my mind. I was hear about some supplement from green-lipped mussel (especially for the dogs), but it was ridiculously expensive and not so familiar for my area, than fish oil. Maybe you can talk about it with your vet or the vet from your local shelter (shelter vets have varied experience with traumas) to find someone who have practical experience with it not only theory .
But again there is no guarantee do she will like the taste. I mask everything in Pate from other food brand, not ours regular, often Gourmet Gold Pate, it's for cats but dogs like it too.

I need help with other anti-inflammatory supplements. I just got back blood work and my Rheumatoid Factor is up to 76. It is supposed to be <16 and mine typically is around 25-35. My ANA titer which measures autoimmune issues is also well out of range.
I take turmeric, but I guess that it is not enough.
I am allergic to mushrooms so I can't take mushroom extract nor can I take Rx biologics (Mobic I was on, IIRC?) because of my history with breast cancer.

I am hoping that the result is some crazy lab error and I go back on the 26th for another round of testing. But I have to say that I am a bit thrown by this.
