Arthritis is described by the Arthritis Foundation as a "chronic, systemic, inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology." Which means they have no clue what causes it.
The stats from arthritis are staggering, as it's a major disability in North America, targeting 1 in 4 adults. It cost 86.2 billion to treat in 1997, stats which have only grown since.
It is a crippling and painful disease that can cause fear induced paralysis, due to the fear of the pain that moving causes.
An article published by 19 doctors in The Townsend Letter for Doctors in January of '95 states that systemic yeast infections can mimic symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
Food allergies caused by yeast have been linked to arthritis by Dr. D. Adamo and others. The foods that you're allergic to cause your body to produce IgE and IgG antibodies. When this happens for years, it gradually wears out the immune system and as a result the allergens in your food are no longer completely removed.
When these allergens do enter the system, they congregate around the joints and clump into the cells, damaging them. The immune system tries to fight them off, but due to being worn out from years of fighting, it is unable to cope. The ensuing inflammation causes further damage and leads to arthritis.
Yeast and other fungi can also deposit mycotoxins into your joints, further damaging them and worsening your arthritis.
To beat your arthritis, and get back the flexibility and mobility you had when you were younger, check with your health care provider and see if a systemic yeast infection is causing your arthritis symptoms.
