Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) is avoidable and reversible in the vast majority of cases.
Your doctor won't tell you that, and worse than that your doctor, like the vast majority of doctors, not only believes that there is no cure for RA, but has no clue why Rheumatoid Arthritis shows up in the first place.
So if your kid(s) have or are starting to have RA symptoms, it's time to turn that mechanism around.
The good news, is that it's simple to do so. The bad news, is that there is no magic pill, and it's going to take some effort and lifestyle changes.
But it's that, or a lifetime of pain, limitation, which includes joint deformity and possible organ failure in the elder years.
This is the second most important part of this page.
YOU MUST KNOW WHY YOUR CHILD IS HURTING. Without that, you're lost in the dark.
And pharmaceutical drugs from the doctors do not shed any light into that darkness.
If you want your child to suffer all their lives, then stick with the meds. If you want to eliminate the CAUSE of juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis, then you have to do the basics.
What Causes Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Juvenile RA, like regular RA, is caused by an inflammatory process in the body.
That inflammatory process is caused by two things: malnutrition, and inflammatory foods.
There's a more complete explanation on the Cause Of Rheumatoid Arthritis page, so this is the short version:
It's possible, but not reauired, that the mother was nutritient deficient during/after pregnancy, and the child didn't have all the nutrition they needed for a strong and healthy digestive system and immune system.
Regardless of that, the constant intake of low-nutrition inflammatory foods is the PRIMARY FACTOR in the development of juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Other Factors Causeing Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
Inflammatory foods are the primary cause, the ANYTHING that causes inflammation is suspect.
There is a frightening about if ignorance and mythology in the medical world about this 'disease', in children or otherwise.
Doctors Have No Clue About Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
For some mind boggling reason, the medical industry claims to have no clue as the the cause of juvinile Rheumatoid Arthritis. It's just some mysterious auto-immmune disorder.
But then, doctors tend to believe that various health issues just appear out of the blue for no reason. Like magic.
Even though there's plenty of reasearch on the topic that if they took ten minutes to research, they'd discover.
My point here is, if your doctor tells you that your child is looking at a life time of RA symptoms and offers no remedy other than dangerous pharmaceutical drugs, you may want to look for other sources of information and treatment.
Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis Is Not A Disease
The current paradigm of western medicine believes that JRA is a disease.
And that that disease shows up for no reason. It just magically appeared for no reasons.
So doctors try to remove the symptoms, but they don't even think about trying to remove the CAUSE.
It's like your child stepping on a nail, going to the doctor who diagnoses 'nail disease' and then prescribes pain killers and pharmaceutical beta-blockers. Instead of just prescribing 'removing the nail'.
JRA is a symptom of a set of problem causing factors. And is thus reversible if one effectively deals with the causative factors.
Doctors even prescribe antibiotic treatment for arthritis when there is no bacterial infection.
I'm not going to spend a lot of time on the symptoms topic. You know what symptoms your child is suffering from.
There are many possible variations of symptoms, but they revolve around these main themes:
RA is RA whether it's in kids or adults. It is an inflammatory process caused by inflammatory foods or other inflammatory ingredients introduced to the body.
See more about symptoms on the Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms page.
Pharmaceutical Drugs for Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis are not, in my opinion, treatments.
They are a band-aid that at best reduces symptoms but in no way fixes the problem.
I prefer fixing problems over ignoring problems and letting them continue to cause problems.
How To Treat Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis
If you want an effective juvinile Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment to get rid of your child's RA, you have to do things:
Nutrition also plays a role there, you'll see where that fits in.
Remove the Cause of the Inflammatory Process
If you continue to hit your head against a wall, it will continue to hurt. Kind of like that.
Stop hitting your head against the wall.
In this case, help your child to STOP eating ALL gluten, processed sugar, factory farmed dairy, processed foods, GMO Corn, etc.
You must understand that 'less' is not necessarily ok. If your head really hurts from hitting the wall repeatedly, and then you continue to hit your head against the wall with 50% less force, your head is STILL going to hurt, and hurt more over time.
So for AT LEAST a couple months, it's bad foods out of the house and good foods in. When symptoms go down and the child is feeling better, one can then expriment with introducing some of the foods back in.
Every case will be different, some can reintroduce, some can't.
First things first, reduce juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis symptoms and help the body heal. Then one can attempt a few twinkies.
Heal Damage To the Digestive Tract
You MUST fix the Leaky Gut. If the holes in the wall aren't plugged up, the body will continue to attack the proteins that leak through.
This requires removal of the irritant, and it requires enough nutrition so the body can heal. This can get a little tricky because if the body is not absorbing nutrition because of the Leaky Gut......
So, remove the irritant, and give the body what it needs so the gut can heal itself. On a very simple level, that's an explanation of the most effective juvenile RA treatment.
