Full Recovery/Healing from Scleroderma? in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted yesterday at 07:10 PM Hi LaBellaVita, Welcome to Sclero Forums! As it happens, the natural course of the disease is to wax and wane, often improving on it's own even without any treatment. This unpredictable course is what has made it inordinately hard to study potential treatments for the disease. Often a treatment will sail through the first two phases of clinical trials, and then flunk third phase, right when everyone feels excited about announcing a possible "cure" for scleroderma. Because of this wavering course of disease, our own individual experiences don't count for very much to scientists, and only the large scale clinical trials can be relied upon. That said, I've had plenty of treatments and lifestyle changes myself that seem to have greatly improved my health, at least for the time being. The actual danger lurking in such improvements is that we'll let our guard down, perhaps stop having our regular scleroderma expert follow-ups, or abandon a treatment that we haven't given sufficient credit to for our improvement. So I rejoice when I notice improvements, keep doing whatever I've been doing, hope for the best, and stay plugged into my medical and support resources, as you never know, for sure, if or when the scleroderma rollercoaster is going to change course.
