Rheumatoid arthritis is a life-altering disorder that remains a mystery to our most brilliant medical minds. So much so that most traditionally trained rheumatologists delivering care to patients afflicted with the dreaded disorder tend to limit their scope of care to mitigation of pain and discomfort. This has been the status quo of how patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis have been cared for during the past few decades. Medical science has seemingly not been in too great a hurry to find a disease reversing and health restoring protocol that could be dispensed to the general public.
In recent years we've seen the emergence of concerned groups, in defiance of the traditional medical field, demanding answers and pushing the envelope with regard to new and promising health restoring treatments and therapies for the many forms of arthritis. Many of these voices have in hand, factual, scientifically derived protocols that, in many instances, have been proven to be effective in alleviating the pain and discomfort of rheumatoid arthritis. There are some who go so far as to claim they have discovered 'cures' for all rheumatic ailments.
Unknown to the average guy on the street, there is something rarely discussed, even in medical circles, that is at the forefront of any sensible, practical and successful attempt to restore the health of anyone afflicted with rheumatic complaints. This is nature's cleansing process that Homeopathic physicians and other nature cure practitioners call the Healing Crisis.
A Healing Crisis usually takes place within the first three to eight weeks of a conscious and sustained, total body cleansing effort. The average duration is from three to five days. It is often initiated by a therapeutic fast or cleansing diet. This allows an immutable principle of nature to kick in which is often referred to as 'the law of cure.' This principle teaches that:
1. The natural cure of any disease state starts deep within the body and works out toward the skin.
2. The natural cure of any disease state starts with the head and moves downward toward the feet.
3. The natural cure of any disease state takes place in reverse order as the symptoms originally appeared in the body.
A disease state such as arthritis follows a certain path or stages of deterioration and degradation and a predictable path to recovery. When an arthritis sufferer engages in some type of systemic waste removal and adopts a biologically friendly fasting regimen or a cleansing diet, that person will often begin to go through a re-visitation of the same symptoms experienced at different stages while the ailment was developing.
It is at this exact point that nature, by way of a Healing Crisis, can walk a person back through the degenerative, chronic, sub-acute and acute stages of their rheumatic ailment until the original condition of acute irritation is reached. Reversal of the disease state at its foundation can often be achieved if the person continues to allow the great immutable principle of nature to operate unhindered throughout the body.
From there it is simply a matter of following a sensible dietary program and adopting certain lifestyle modifications to achieve the desired goal of partial or complete reversal of the rheumatic disorder. What many biologically oriented practitioners have known for years and what some of our contemporary health professionals are discovering is that without a Healing Crisis and the disease reversal process there can be no complete recovery from disease.
