1. I am a long time Dermatomyositis sufferer, around 25 years. I have struggle with all sorts of drugs: methotrexate,IGG,Rutuxin, Embrel to name a few. From the encouragement of a friend I tried a Acai Juice, Monavie Active. My Muscle enzymes (CK) has been normal for the first time in over 10 years. I would like to offer a bottle of Monavie Active to one of DR. Rakerkar’s patients FREE. I am looking for independent confirmation that Monavie is great for RA as it is for me



    1. Dear Bryan,
      Rheumatoid Arthritis & dermatomyositis are two different entities. The same medication need not work in both the ailments.

      Today, we are in the modern age of ‘evidence based medicine’. What I mean by this is the fact that we treat patients based on scientific evidence rather than personal beliefs or thoughts.

      To independently confirm the efficacy of the juice, one would have to conduct an ethical & scientific clinical study of the same in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
      Only then one can give it routinely to any patient.
