I can completely understand why you're looking for a natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment. The traditional treatment options are either inadequate, have unpleasant side effects, have questionable long-term safety or all of the above.
When most people talk about arthritis, they're referring to the more common osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis involves the same joint inflammation, but the cause is completely different. Rather than it being a "wearing out" of the joint, it is actually your body's own immune system that attacks and destroys the joint. So it is more often seen in younger people and it progresses quickly and tends to be very debilitating and deforming.
Any discussion about a natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment has to start with the underlying cause of the disease. Because any true treatment must remedy that.
Since rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, traditional treatment is based on suppressing your immune system. The thought was that if your immune system is attacking your own body, it must be overactive. I don't think you need to be a health professional to see the problem with traditional treatment.
The drugs do a decent job of slowing the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, but they have some pretty serious side effects. Aside from the many toxic effects they often have, a big problem is of course that you have a suppressed immune system. It's a rather important part of maintaining health- not only does it keep you from picking up every sickness that goes around, it also helps prevent some diseases, like cancer.
What science is showing now is that autoimmune diseases aren't caused by overactive immune systems, but improperly active immune systems. In a sense, they're "confused".
So a natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment is focussed on getting the immune system working properly, rather than suppressing it.
What has been shown to be effective is optimal nutrition through potent, high-quality supplementation. Optimal nutrition is providing your cells with everything they need to function optimally, including a large amount and variety of antioxidants.
Antioxidants not only help proper functioning of your immune system, but they are also excellent anti-inflammatories, which is another huge part of rheumatoid arthritis treatment. If you haven't already read my webpage on osteoarthritis, go there now and read it before you carry on with this page.
Although the cause of the inflammation is different, the damage from oxidative stress due to a massive amount of free radicals is still the same. That page will explain the inflammatory process of rheumatoid arthritis and how antioxidants play a key role in treatment.
Natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment is basically the same as osteoarthritis treatment. Again, if you haven't read it already, go read the osteoarthritis page now so I don't have to repeat it all here.
The difference with rheumatoid arthritis treatment is that you need more antioxidants. Not only do you need the antioxidants to stop the free radical damage and inflammation, you need them to help correct your immune system, so you need more of them.
Unfortunately, the only way to get the amount of nutrients and antioxidants to stop the damage and correct your immune system is to supplement. Eating a healthy diet is still important, but it's not possible to get the amounts you need.
Go to antioxidant supplements to learn more...
You must be extremely careful in choosing a supplement. Unfortunately, most of the stuff available is pure garbage. Plain & simple. Seriously. You'd be better off NOT taking most of the supplements available on the market.
Equally difficult is finding out which supplements actually are of high quality. Lucky for you, as a pharmacist, I have some expertise in this area. Through MUCH research (if you don't believe me, go to best antioxidant supplement to see what's involved), I have found some products that are of excellent quality. Unfortunately, I am not able to use brand names on my website for legal reasons. I am, however, able to send you an e-mail with brand names in it. Strange, I know.
All you need to do is fill out the form at the bottom of this page and you'll instantly receive an e-mail with all the information you need for natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment.
The recommendations are based on science and real-life experience with my own clients as well as those of a fellow medical doctor who has been practicing nutritional medicine with these particular products for over 11 years.
Don't try to construct your own regimen with only half the information. You'll be disappointed with the results. Trust me- I've seen it before.
To give you some hope:
One of my clients with rheumatoid arthritis had been getting weekly methotrexate injections for years to keep her disease under control. The side effects started to affect her quality of life and she was tired of driving the 1/2 hour every week to get the injection. So she decided to stop. Within 2 months, she was so debilitated and in so much pain that she couldn't even leave her house. She was also sliding quickly into depression at the thought that the rest of her life would be like that.
I mentioned to her the success myself and my physician colleague have seen using optimal nutrition as a natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment. She was highly skeptical, but desperate at this point, so she decided to give the supplements a try.
Within 2 weeks, she noticed an improvement, and after 6 months, she is back to her old self!
So just fill out this quick form and you will instantly receive the names of the products for natural rheumatoid arthritis treatment. Then you can be on your way to the same success. I know it seems silly to have to do it this way, but our legal system is the way it is...
And don't worry, you will NEVER EVER receive spam as a result of this. Your information is only seen and used by little old me to get you the information. I hate spam as much as you!
