My daughter who is 13 years old was diagnosed with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. Doctor wants to put her on Prednisone. Any suggestions or any advise would be great!

    My experience with prednisone it can cause hyperactivity and weight gain. But if its going to do her more good than anything I'd do it.
      This may sound really weird, but here goes: I'm a reader; I love to read, and I've always been fascinated with China. A few years ago, I cataloged a school library and found a book written by a missionary who visited China in the 1500's (I believe). He was so fascinated with the culture that he wrote a book, which was a sociological study of the people and their customs. In the book, he said that he believes that the reason the Chinese people live so long and are so healthy is because they never put ice in their drinks. He said that the Chinese had never even heard of gall stones, which were so common in Europe, where people loved their ice. Ice is 32 degrees or less while the body is 98 degrees or more. When you drink something that is so cold, imagine the trauma to the body.
