Have We Got It Backwards?
So here is what I found on it:
" Methotrexate is classified as an antimetabolite drug, which means it is capable of blocking the metabolism of cells. As a result of this effect, it has been found helpful in treating certain diseases associated with abnormally rapid cell growth. It has also been found very helpful in treating rheumatoid arthritis, although its mechanism of action in this illness is not known. It seems to work, in part by altering aspects of immune function which may play a role in causing rheumatoid arthritis.
It is widely distributed throughout body tissues with reports of persistence of this drug in the liver up to 116 days after exposure.
It is a cancer medication, when used in high doses. In lower doses it is used to slow the progression of autoimmune diseases such as RA.
If you are taking methotrexate, you need extra folic acid. The reason: methotrexate can cause folic acid deficiency, which can result in problems/side-effects. Folic acid can be given by your doctor as a supplement. Foods rich in folic acid include beets, boysenberries, brown rice, veggies in the cabbage family, cantaloupe, citrus fruits, eggs, green leafy vegetables, haddock, halibut, salmon, tuna, soybean sprouts, asparagus and spinach. Eating five or more servings of the above fresh fruits and vegetables and three servings of fish a week should be more than adequate to decrease the side effects."
I have every confidence in my Rheumatologist and I don't question many others, because I perceive them superior in their knowledge. They studied for it, so they know what they are talking about and I have faith that their advise (or prescription) will solve/diminish my ailment, for I lack their knowledge and don't bother to ask, like so many others.
It appears we find it easier to have faith in a person then to have it in God.
W hy do we often doubt and question God's Word? If anyone is superior and knows, then it is He and yet we question, doubt and struggle so often against Him. What we don't understand, we should accept in Faith. Give Him what He is entitled to. Faith is the hardest thing to have and do. Maybe we should concentrate on strengthening our faith and give it to God, where it belongs, unconditionally, unquestioned and unlimited:-)
To me it seems like we have got it backwards. How about you?
1 Corinthians 2:5
that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
