Rheumatoid Arthritis is a crippling inflammatory condition that causes deterioration of the joints, especially of the hands, feet and knees. It generally affects both sides of the body simultaneously. Persons can be known to be fine one day in an area, yet be troubled by that joint the next day. Now there is real help with alternative healing methods.
The symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are varied:
-aching and stiffness in a joint
-loss of range of motion in the affected joint
-the muscles near the joint are weakened
-joint deformity as the joint deteriorates
-rheumatoid nodules that form under the skin near the joint
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease resulting from a weakened immune system, resulting in the tissues and joints being attacked by the persons own body. If left untreated the joint breaks down and becomes destroyed over time. The need for joint replacement surgery is about the only thing that a person can do if this happens.
Alternative medicine for rheumatitis can help to rebuild and restore damaged joints and also remove the pain of inflammation that is caused by too much arachidonic acid in the body. A small change in diet, according to Dr. Floyd Chilton in his book entitled "Winning the War Within" which includes a minimum of 4 to 5 servings of the right seafood or cold water fish a week, along with enough omega 3 oil;(at least 600mg.) and 600 mg. to 1000 mg. borage oil per day will help eradicate this debilitating condition. The condition, if left untreated, will only get worse. Joints will continue to deteriorate until bone is touching bone; the pain becoming unbearable.
Fortunately there is real help out there for arthritis sufferers. As you can see, there are many natural food supplements that can help with this condition and perhaps leave you pain free.
