Your Doctor Knows
Arthritis Medication Can't Fix Arthritis  

Arthritis Medication is the main (and only) treatment mainstream medical doctors employ to 'treat' arthritis.

Current medical paradigm consists of:

  • an arthritis 'disease' magically appeared for no reason
  • there is no cure for arthritis
  • pharmaceutical drugs are the only viable option of treatment (even though they can't cure arthritis)

Arthritis medicine is employed in an attempt to suppress symptoms.

But unfortunately, doctors don't ask WHY symptoms are occurring.  They just give their patients a prescription and usher them out the door.


And there are A LOT of arthritis pain medications out there.



$54.4 BILLION Spent By Patients On Arthritis Medication And ZERO Patients Cured

In just the five years 2011 - 2015, people suffering from arthritis spent $54.4 billion on arthritis pain medication.

And not a single one of those people were cured of arthritis by those medicines.

Rheumatoid arthritis medication and osteoarthritis medication are GREAT products for the pharmaceutical industry.

Humira is the top selling drug of all time.  In 2011 is sold $7.9 billion.  In 2015 is sold $14 billion.

Because patients suffering from arthritis are prescribed these drugs to reduce pain levels.  And these drugs must be taken FOREVER.

Because they don't cure arthrititis.  At best they reduce symptoms.

There's nothing wrong with reducing pain and helping a person get through their day better.

But there IS something wrongwith selling patients a lifelong requirement to a drug that doesn't cure anything, when there is a cure to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

$54 billion (and that's just the drug sales) made based on the iie that arthritis in incurable.

Shameful.


Arthritis Medication
Same For Different Types Of Arhtritis

Unfortunately, when prescribing arthritis medicine, doctors prescribe the same meds regardless of whether their patient has osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis (VERY different kinds of arthritis that share the same symptoms.


Again, this points to that doctors only deal with symptoms, not causes (which points to why they can't cure your arthritis).


If you do some research, you'll see many medical sites that list arthritis drugs...and that list will be the same for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.  

Below you will find lists of categories of arthritis medications, but not by kind of arthritis.

It should be noted that the Biologic drug Humira is the top selling drug of all time.

It sold $9.3 Billion in 2012 and $14 billion in 2015.

That's A LOT of drugs to a lot of people.

And the increase in sales brings up the question....are that many more people suffering from arthritis in 2015 than they were in 2012, or are sales tactics and doctor recruitment just that much more effective?

The arthritis medication scamRemember, Artritis Medication is an 11+ BILLION dollar per year industry...and it's a drug that doesn't cure arthritis.


Rheumatoid Arthritis Medication

Rheumatoid arthritis pain medication comes from the lists above.

As has been said, doctors prescribe the above medications for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Osteoarthritis, even though the two have vastly different cause mechanisms.

See:  What Is Arthritis

See:  Causes Of Osteoarthritis

See:  Cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis


The hope of rheumatoid arthritis medicine is that it suppresses the auto-immune response mechanism (that creates various symptoms).  And some people do experience symptom relief while they're on the drugs.

The problem with symptom suppression however is that there is still an auto-immune mechanism being triggered in the body.  And until that trigger is removed, there will always be an auto-immune response being pushed forward.

RA medications can not and will never cure rheumatoid arthritis.  It is an impossibility.

But reversing rheumatoid arthritis is a very doable thing.  Just not with pharmaceutical drugs and doctors that believe that RA is incurable.
