Currently, conventional medicine treats rheumatoid with several drugs. These drugs are aimed at decreasing inflammation and modulating pain.
- NSAIDs. Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) can relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
- Steroids. Corticosteroid medications, such as prednisone, reduce inflammation and pain and slow joint damage.
- Disease-Modifying Antirheumatic Drugs (DMARDs).
These medications do provide some temporary relief. However, the larger question that you should be asking is this: What causes rheumatoid? And, importantly, what can I do right now to help my body recover so that I can lead a better quality of life?
Factors in the development of rheumatoid:
- Genetic factors.
- Leaky gut syndrome. Subsequent immune damage which leads to autoimmune and food sensitivities.
- Upper cervical (upper neck) trauma which leads to decreased nervous system function.
Natural things you can do to help heal!
Most chronic health conditions have multiple converging factors that lead to chronic health problems. One area of burgeoning research in the quest to uncover causative factors in autoimmunity is the brain, gut, axis ( use link).
While strong painkilling medications and corticosteroids often lead to an amelioration of symptoms, their long-term use can be devastating to the GI tract and liver. Prolonged use can create a chronic inflammatory response to the gut lining.
This leads to a cascade of deleterious effects on immunity. Leaky gut exacerbates autoimmune problems but taking steps to correct this problem will aid in helping you to recover from rheumatoid, lupus and other related autoimmune problems.
A little known procedure called Upper Cervical has been found to be quite powerful at unleashing your body's innate abilities to heal and repair. Many people, not just rheumatoid sufferers, have had neck trauma that contributes to their health problems. Upper Cervical Care can be the link that you didn’t know you were missing.
Whiplash injuries can cause ligamentous damage resulting in abnormal biomechanics of the joints of the neck. In time this causes neurological compromise. Since the upper neck neurology controls most functions in the body, it appears that neck injuries set the stage for a weakening of the strength of your body's capacity for healing and repair. These injuries, in combination with genetic predispositions, often set the stage for chronic health problems.
