Are You Tired of the Conventional Method of Managing Rheumatoid Arthritis? Here Is All You Need to Know.

Do you know that Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects over 1.5 million adults worldwide? This condition can affect anyone, but it most often affects women between the ages of 40 and 60 years old. I will start by explaining the rheumatoid arthritis.

What is rheumatoid arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune condition that occurs when the body begins attacking the joints, mistaking them as foreign invaders. The body attacks the thin membrane surrounding joints, allowing fluid and immune complexes to build up in the joints and cause significant pain. Normally these immune complexes filter out of your blood on their own, but when there is a build-up, they tend to settle into different joints and cause local inflammation and tissue damage. When these immune complexes build up in the joints, they can cause pain and swelling characteristic of Rheumatoid arthritis. (1)

From my experience, I noticed that Rheumatoid arthritis starts in the small joints such as hands, fingers, and toes. It then progresses to larger joints like the wrists, ankles, knees, and hips. The pain and swelling is usually on both sides of the body or in bi-lateral joints. Do you know that if someone in your family has Rheumatoid arthritis or any autoimmune disease, you are more likely to develop RA in your lifetime? I also noticed that when an individual is being diagnosed of Rheumatoid arthritis, the person is three times more likely to develop a second autoimmune condition. Additionally, I read a research that analyzed autoimmunity in identical twins and found out that genetics only account for 25% and environmental factors account for 75% of autoimmune conditions. (2)

Why Mor's Nutrition & More?

Too often, people think of “wellness” in temporary terms. They want to work with doctors and take short-term steps, like medication, to improve annoying symptoms but never deal with unhealthy routines and lifestyle choices that created the illness in the first place.

After years of seeing this happen with individuals like you, Chen Ben Asher opened a functional and integrative nutritional clinic that not only helps people improve their overall wellness and health, but also give them the tools and coaching to successfully continue their journey for the rest of their lives.​

Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis

I understand the fact that the symptoms and severity of rheumatoid arthritis can vary from person to person, but here, I complied a list of some common signs that could be noticed based on my experience and they include:

How Rheumatoid Arthritis is treated conventionally

Rather than addressing the root cause of rheumatoid arthritis, conventional medicine focus on managing the symptoms with treatments based solely on medications. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Ibuprofen are mostly used as the first line of treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis and then this becomes less active, then steroids such as Prednisone are usually prescribed. If these steroids no longer alleviate the symptoms, then a list of other strong medications are usually prescribed to either modulate or suppress the immune system as a whole. From my experience, I noticed these drugs usually comes with harsh side effects such as bone marrow suppression, liver damage, and increased susceptibility to infections. With that being said, I strongly believe that you have to find the underlying cause of the imbalance using the functional medicine approach to truly address the problem and prevent the immune system from attacking the joints.

Functional Medicine Approach to Rheumatoid Arthritis
Eliminate Gluten from your Diet

For everyone suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis, I recommend the total removal of gluten which is an inflammatory food from their diets. During the cause of my interaction with clients, I recommend they eliminate all grains and legumes from their diet as well because these foods contain proteins known as lectins which are usually used as natural pesticide for crops and are known to wreck havoc on the lining of the gut. I know how difficult this might sound but changing your diet is the first step in getting well. (4)

Manage the Gut

Do you know managing the health of your gut is essential to having great health? I have had extensive conversations with clients on the benefits of managing your guts and all you need to know about guts supplements. Contact me to learn more on the exact steps you need to take to enhance your guts. (5)

Evaluate Underlying Infections

Once you diagnose any underlining bacteria infection, its advisable you treat it as soon as possible to prevent this from building up into a more complex disease.

Check for Heavy Metals

Do you know that we are exposed to heavy metals in a number of different ways such as amalgams, fish consumption, and the environment? You have to take a test to determine if mercury or other heavy metals are an issue for you. If your mercury or lead levels are high, then you may need to manage it properly. (6)

Check for mycotoxins

Common environmental mold testing does not test for mycotoxins. Do you know that mycotoxins are what seem to wreak havoc on the gut and immune system? I advice clients to take urine test to assess the level of mycotoxins in the system.

Support The Immune System

Do you know that supplements like vitamin D, omega-3 fish oils, and glutathione are powerful immune modulators, which means that they can help support your immune system? Vitamin D has been shown to help regulate the immune system. Omega 3 fish oils can also help to reduce inflammation in the entire body. Glutathione is the most powerful antioxidant in the body which can help reduce inflammation and improve detoxification in the body. (7)

Summary

My approach to Rheumatoid Arthritis recognizes that the immune system is in charge of both inflammation and anti-inflammation. Inflammation is needed in the body to allow the immune system to do its job and clean up the ‘bad guys’. The problem of auto-immunity and metabolic syndrome is not that there is inflammation, it is that there is something confusing the body to attack itself and cause chronic inflammation. That’s why my approach will expose the root cause of the confused immune system and when we manage this, the body can realign the natural immune response.
