Handling Rheumatoid Arthritis The Natural Way!

Clinical Signs Of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Are you, someone you know, or love suffering from rheumatoid arthritis? Many people today, have pain in their hands and/or feet that usually affects the joints that are closer to the palm of their hand i.e. proximal joints rather than the joints that are further out in their fingers i.e.distal joints.

It doesn’t matter whether you’ve been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis or what your blood tests show. If you are suffering from the same type of pain in these same areas especially in both of your hands and/or feet, you can pretty much be sure that you have rheumatoid arthritis or some type of rheumatoid arthritis.

Although, rheumatoid arthritis is not as common as osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, it is far more crippling. If one knows and understands what’s involved to live a healthy lifestyle degenerative arthritis is pretty easy to treat.

Which isn’t the case when one suffers from rheumatoid arthritis because it’s not as easy to understand as the others. It’s defined as being an autoimmune disease which is a disease where one’s body actually destroys itself which eventually leads to death, or other sufferers commit suicide because of the immense pain and crippling they suffer.

Research has shown that less than one percent of rheumatoid arthritis sufferers have a spontaneous remission. It has also shown that disability affects 50 to 70 percent of people suffering within only five years after the start of the disease, and that half will quit their jobs within ten years after the onset of rheumatoid arthritis..

Toxic Drugs Are Usually Used To Treat rheumatoid arthritis

Toxic Drugs such as; prednisone, methotrexate, and other drugs that interfere with the tumor necrosis factor like Enbrel are usually used to alleviate some of the pain and treat the symptoms. However, it still doesn’t offer much help or hope to those that suffer from this disease.

In truth, and as sad as it may be rheumatoid arthritis (rheumatoid arthritis) is an autoimmune disease that does destroy its victims joints and it is fatal. However, what is even sadder is the fact that the only thing anyone is doing to treat it is prescribing toxic drugs which can lead to an untimely death also.

  • Recent studies have shown that women who drink one or more servings of soda in a given day are at a much higher risk to develop rheumatoid arthritis compared to women that drink less than one serving of soda a month or none at all.

  • Studies also showed that 14 percent withdrew from the NSAID group study, due to NSAIDs causing serious adverse reactions such as; heart problems and ulcers and that not one single person withdrew from the curcumin group study.

Vitamin D Does Play An Important Role

Vitamin D plays an important role in treating rheumatoid arthritis because it triggers 200 to 300 antimicrobial peptides that are more potent than the antibiotics that aid in balancing and mending your immunity and help treat infections.

With that being said, people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis should address their vitamin D levels with sun exposure or vitamin supplements. It’s important to know that a person’s vitamin D blood level can hit an all time low in the months of January, February, and/or March because that is when the sun is at it’s lowest.

I cannot stress enough how important it is to aggressively address, and optimize your vitamin D level as well as have them checked by your family doctor at least once a month to regulate the dosage they’re taking.

Especially, if you’re taking vitamin supplements because it’s important that you acquire and keep a therapeutic level of 50 to 70 ng/ml. Another important factor to consider is to nourish your gut microbiome.

In addition to eating healthy fermented foods it’s also important to completely eliminate sugar from your diet because if you don’t the sugar will decimate your immune system by feeding the pathogenic microbes and will leave you prone to autoimmune diseases of all types.
