Arthritis is currently overtaking heart disease as the No.1 result of nutritional neglect!
So, the first thing we need to appreciate here is that Arthritis is NOT a "natural part of aging".
Most forms are PREVENTABLE and CURABLE if your body receives the right nutrients on a regular (near daily) basis!
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is the most common form of arthritis! It is a chronic disease!
Its exact causes are currently unknown but it is likely that many different causes trigger the development of RA. It is generally described as an autoimmune disease which results in inflammation of the lining of the joints (synovial membrane) and surrounding tissue.
The inflamed membrane spreads to the bone and cartilage and the space between the joints decreases - the joints then lose their shape and alignment.
It is widely accepted that nutritional deficiencies and a generally insufficient diet are involved in the appearance of RA. These have been thoroughly researched and recognized as accountable for most arthritic symptoms.
While other forms of arthritis are confined to the joints, rheumatoid arthritis has the potential to also cause inflammation in your organs – e.g. heart, lungs and eyes.
RA usually inflicts joints on both sides of the body equally. The most commonly affected joints are: wrists; fingers; knees; feet; and ankles, although the larger joints may be affected later.
RA comes on gradually. Early symptoms for rheumatoid arthritis are:
These symptoms will eventually be followed by joint pain – which in more severe cases is considerable. When the joint is not used for a while, it can become warm, tender, and stiff. As the synovial membrane becomes inflamed the joint begins swelling.
Additional symptoms include:
If not treated - joint destruction may occur within 1-2 years after the onset of the disease.
Conventional therapies rely on a combination of pharmaceutical drugs and physiotherapy to try to retain joint mobility.
The most commonly prescribed drugs include:
1) Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
NSAIDs are associated with a number of side effects – you knew that was coming, right! What drugs aren’t!
Recently the FDA FINALLY admitted that all prescription drugs are unsafe!
Some side effects are mild and go away spontaneously or after reducing the dose. Others are more serious and need medical attention.
Common side effects include:
Rheumatoid arthritis sufferers have a higher risk for complications from NSAIDs!
2) COX-2 inhibitors
COX-2 inhibitors are a new class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (improved NSAIDs) that selectively block the COX-2 enzyme at the site of inflammation. This action creates a problem however because the COX-2 enzyme produces protective fatty acids in the body – and with this production blocked the user has an increased risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular problems.
So to put it succinctly – the side effects of COX-2 inhibitors are:
NSAIDs are taken regularly by about 33 million Americans!
Since rheumatoid arthritis is the most common form of arthritis this means a large percentage of this number represents people using COX-2 inhibitors as rheumatoid arthritis cures! Oh boy!
Many people prefer natural rheumatoid arthritis cures to synthetic drugs. This is a far safer option. Natural ingredients have long been used to treat bone and joint inflammation.
Any rheumatoid arthritis cures based on the use of natural substances need to include a wide range of nutrients with properties shown to:
Virtually all natural health supplements aimed at improving the symptoms of RA are way too limited in their approach. Since they are all manufactured to a price their formulas are left short! They do not represent effective rheumatoid arthritis cures.
The manufacturers cannot afford to include the broad spectrum of natural ingredients necessary in order to achieve the most effective results possible. To include all necessary ingredients would result in a purchase price outside the reach of most consumers.
Large organizational structures and commonly used MLM marketing structures generate large costs which negatively impact on the formulation and efficacy of arthritis supplements.
