Need some Rheumatoid Arthritis Help?
Arthritis Rheumatoid is considered by mainstream medicine to be a disease, and uncurable (just like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc).
That's NO help to you.
Unfortunately all your doctor has for you is pharmaceutical meds to suppress the symptoms, but no explanation as to how and why you're suffering, and no expectations of a cure, much less 'getting better'.
Also NO help to you.
Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms are due to a complex dynamic in the body that can be explained very simply, which is what we will be doing here.
In short, there's certain reasons why rheumatic issues develop, and dealing with those reasons can help symptoms diminish and go away, and in fact, 'cure' the problem.
We could get really complex about RA. But we don't need to.
There are some things that you need to know. I'm just going to give you what you need to know, in simple terms.
Do you know about the biochemistry of how Rheumatoid arthritis works? Do you want to? Or would you rather find out exactly WHY you're in pain and exactly WHAT you need to do to make the pain go away?
That's how I deal with problems, so that's the Rheumatoid Arthritis help you'll find here.
We'll talk about the cause of RA, meaning that we'll talk about what's causing your body to attack your joints.
We'll talk about symptoms. We'll talk about treatments.
Each topic is briefly covered on this page, and each topic section will have a link to send you to a page with a more complete explanation of each topic.
To your Doctor Rheumatoid Arthritis is a magical mystery. It just showed up for some unknown reason. So here, have some drugs.
The hospital industry claims to be science driven, but they ignore a huge portion of their own body of research.
If you want to cure Rheumatoid Arthritis, you must know WHY you have it in the first place.
"It's an inflammatory disease!" doctors proclaim. Yes, yes it is. But WHY is there inflammation? What is the cause? Go ahead and ask your doctor that, let me know what s/he says.
You want Rheumatoid Arthritis help, I challenge your medical profesisonals to provide -actual- help, as opposed to a band aid.
Inflammation is the cause of RA. But what causes the inflammation?
It's simple, really:
See? That's pretty simple, right?
Want to more about the causes of RA? See the Cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis page.
It wouldn't hurt to see the Osteoarthritis vs Rheumatoid Arthritis comparison.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Early Symptoms consist of joint pain you're aware of but can ignore. The ache/pain/stiffness can come and go.
The best time to start looking for effective Rheumatoid Arthritis help is when you first notice the pain starting to spread (because realistically you're not going to think it's a real problem until it starts to spread).
Over time, this mild ache/pain/stiffness will get worse. Worse joint ache, worse joint pain, worse stiffness in the joints.
RA symptoms usually start in one or two joints of the hand/fingers, and then commonly spreads to other joints in the area, hands and feet, knees, neck. Anywhere is fair game, but hands are the most common.
And numbness and tingling can appear as the inflammatory effects grow and affect various tissue around nerves.
Because the RA mechanism stems from a systemic cause, all tissue is fair game: lungs and other organs, for instance. We're not going to talk alot about that here, other than to urge you to deal with the CAUSE of the inflammatory 'disease' so your organs can get free or stay from from the effects of rheumatic inflammatory effects.
Then see: Rheumatoid Arthritis Early Symptoms
I'll list the symptoms and describe the root cause of the symptoms.
Everybody wants Rheumatoid Arthritis help for their pain and reduced mobility.
And they should have that help. Pharmaceutical drugs are fine to get you through the day, but there's not end to that need until you get your body healthy again.
RA pain is one of the primary symptoms of arthritis rheumatoid, and every treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, if it's going to be effective, must significantly reduce that pain.
On the Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain page, we're going to delve into the How's and the Why's of RA pain, from pain from inflammation to pain from joint deformation, and we'll throw 'stiffness' and 'numbness and tingling' in there as well.
Kids can get RA too.
Poor kids are afflicted with some disease, right?
Nope. Poor kids are afflicted with nutritional deficiency and diets that are harming their bodies.
I almost started a website, long ago, called 'Stop Poisoning Your Kids'. These kids would be exactly the kind of kids I'm talking about.
They dont' need pharmaceutical drugs for the rest of their lives, they need to stop being poisoned everyday by the foods they're given.
Stop poisoning your kids and get them the Rheumatoid Arthritis help that they need/that will actually make a difference for them. Actually, as you'll find out, stopping the poisoning of your kids IS the primary help that their bodies need.
See the Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis page.
Treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis primarily consist of pharmaceutical drugs to suppress symptoms or attempt to suppress the immuney system.
But these drugs don't target the CAUSE of RA. So there is no cure to be found there.
There is of course massage, accupuncture, physical therapy, and a host of home medical devices, pills, creams, etc. But again, none of these targe the actua CAUSE of the rheumatic inflammatory response.
So while they may make you feel better for a bit, again, no cure there.
The great news is, when you understand WHY you have RA, you'll also find that no 'cure' is needed (because RA is not a disease). You just need to eliminate the cause of the problem (and fix any associated damage to the system that has developed.
The best kind of Rheumatoid Arthritis help is the kind that not only provides pain relief, but that also gets rid of the problem that's causing the pain in the first place!
If your joints are deformed, there's nothing we can do about that, but we can diminish and/or stop the forces that are causing the deformation.
Rhematoid Arthritis Remission is a relevant topic here.
See the Rheumatoid Arthritis Pain Relief page.
Rheumatoid arthritis medicine consists of untold wealth going to the pharmaceutical industry.
That industry creates drugs to suppress the body's immune system and/or reduce RA symptoms (which is not a bad thing), and then they lobby gov't and control the American Medical Association and convince doctors that their drugs are the only possible treatment for people suffering from RA.
Many of the drugs have significant side effects.
NONE of the drugs can 'cure' Rheumatoid Arthritis.
See the Rheumatoid Arthritis Drugs page
STOP LIVING WITH RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS! (And get some Rheumatoid Arthritis Help that actually makes a difference!)
I mean, don't stop living, but get rid of the RA.
We've been conditioned to believe that RA is a disease and you just have to live with it the best you can. In some cases that may be true or partially true, and there is no going back from joint deformation, but the VAST MAJORITY of people suffering with Rheumatoid Arthritis can turn it around and make it go away.
I'm a fan of fixing the problem, aren't you?
Getting Rheumatoid Arthritis help should, in my humble opinion, consist of getting a fix, of actually reversing the mechanism that's causing the pain and problem.
Having said that, there is a conversation to be had about living with RA, and it's valuable both for the short term while trying to get your body healthy again, and in the long run depending on what long term factors are at play.
