It is my firm belief that the information above is extremely crucial for effective treatment of autoimmune arthritis i.e. rheumatoid arthritis and I strongly recommend anyone who has this disease to utilize this information.
Through experience, I have learned that rheumatologists don’t really have much to offer those who sufferer from this terminal disease besides dangerous toxic drugs that can only ease the symptoms and do nothing to remedy the underlying causes of the disease which will continue to destroy your body and and cause crippling deformities in your joints.
Below is a summary of a drug-free rheumatoid arthritis protocol. Feel free to use it and/or share it with someone you know or love that has rheumatoid arthritis as it may possibly change their life as it has for others that suffer from this disease.
Be sure to eat REAL foods. Eliminate fructose, grains, processed foods, and sugar. If you can’t eliminate sugar from your diet it isn’t likely your symptoms will improve. It important to eat locally grown high-quality food that is organic, and unprocessed whenever it is possible.
It is also important to take in high-quality omega-3 fats that are animal based. Rather than taking in regular fish oil try taking in Krill oil instead because it’s a more effective anti-inflammatory preparation and is extremely effective when taken with astaxanthin. Which is another powerful antioxidant bioflavonoid that’s derived from algae.
I highly recommend vegetable juicing and that you eat your food as raw as possible and.
4 mg. Of Astaxanthin a day is also recommended as it has been known to reduce the pain that has been associated with inflammation. Studies have actually shown that rheumatoid arthritis sufferers experienced less pain and an improvement in the performance of their daily activities after 8 weeks of taking astaxanthin.
It’s also important that anyone who is has been placed on prednisone which can cause blindness and reduce vision. Astaxanthin protects rheumatoid arthritis sufferers from age related degeneration as well as cataracts.
Because vitamin D deficiency is highly associated with the development of rheumatoid arthritis optimizing your vitamin D is also highly recommended. I feel that it is criminally negligent malpractice for someone to treat a rheumatoid arthritis sufferer and not aggressively regulate their vitamin D levels to confirm that their blood levels are in the therapeutic range of 50 to 70 ng/ml.
I also suggest that you eat at least 4 to 6 ounces of fermented veggies a day, which will supply the body with about 10 trillion beneficial bacteria. For the best ways to properly prepare them get the GAPS book.
It’s also a good idea exercise regularly and to incorporate it into your daily activities.
I don’t like any type of drug, but I do recommend that if you struggle with rheumatoid arthritis pain to try a low-dose Naltrexone (LDN) which is inexpensive and non-toxic. Although, this is a drug and not a natural remedy, it’s provided relief and is safer than the other toxic drugs used.
Other Natural Pain Relievers Are Important Too
The number one problem with rheumatoid arthritis is controlling the pain that’s associated with it. If this can’t be done you can go into depression which can and will worsen your immune system and cause your rheumatoid arthritis to flare.
The ultimate goal is to be as comfortable and free from pain as possible with the very least amount of drugs which leads me to say that in addition to low-dose Naltrexone there are a few other dietary supplements that are non-toxic that can be beneficial and helpful in treating rheumatoid arthritis pain as well:
- Curcumin (turmeric) is particularly effective against acute and chronic pain. It’s known for it’s powerful anti-inflammatory substances. It’s known to control over 700 genes, and inhibits both the excessive activity as well as the synthesis of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) and 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX). Not to mention other enzymes that have been involved connected to inflammation. Studies on rats, have also shown that turmeric blocks inflammatory pathways that are connected to rheumatoid arthritis.
- Boswellin, also known as boswellia or “Indian frankincense” is another natural herb that’s useful against arthritic inflammation as well as the associated pain.
- Ginger, Last, but not least ginger also contains anti-inflammatory properties and offers pain relief. Especially fresh ginger that is steeped in boiling water and used as a tea or grated and added to vegetable juice.
