Rheumatoid Arthritis 26 August 2009
The sooner the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis occurs, the quicker and more complete the response. Rheumatoid arthritis is not a disease but a symptom of a highly toxic body where the toxicity is eliminated through the joints because the other means of excretion (breathing, sweating, urination and defaecation) are overwhelmed.
- Alkalisation of the body.
- Eradication of chronic infections such as Mycoplasma. A study published in the June 1999 edition of the journal Rheumatology found that a high percentage of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients had systemic mycoplasma infections. 28 patients with RA were investigated by PCR testing for chronic mycoplasma infections. 54% were found to be positive for a chronic mycoplasma infection. 36% had evidence of more than one type of mycoplasma. If mycoplasma infections are identified and treated then a marked improvement in RA frequently occurs.
- Removal of heavy metals and other environmental toxins. See Mercury and Lead.
- Balancing of hormones. See Oestriol.
- Optimisation of mineral status with a pharmaceutical grade multivitamin and mineral and pharmaceutical grade fish oil. A study published in the September 1997 edition of the journal Med Klin found that selenium supplementation improved symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). 70 patients with RA were studied and found to be low in selenium. They were then given selenium or placebo for 3 months. The selenium group showed fewer tender and swollen joints and less morning stiffness. They also required less anti-inflammatory medication and had a reduction in measured inflammatory markers.
