I. Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms and Treatment

This type of arthritis usually occurs in the most commonly used joints such as knees, hips, back and hands. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is caused by an autoimmune dysfunction where white blood cells destroy cartilage. The exact cause of RA is unknown, but it can be related to food allergies, bacterial infections, stress, or excess acid in the body.


II. Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Be Cured?

  • Rheumatoid arthritis caused by the immune system attacking joints as if they were foreign tissues. Because of this, rheumatoid arthritis is classified as an autoimmune disease.
  • While there is no cure for arthritis, there are certain foods that have been shown to help relieve arthritis symptoms.
  • Scientists have also shown that there is a link between gut (leaky gut) and inflammation in the joints.
  • That is why eliminating inflammation-promoting agents from the diet and healing the gut can have a significant effect on health.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Cause



Rheumatoid Arthritis Cause

  • Scientists believe that disease and inflammation are likely the result of a mismatch between our genetics and our environment. In other words, the changes in the environment are relatively recent in human history and our genes haven't had a chance to catch up and adapt!
  • your gut are not adapted to changes in the environment. This is very important because thousands of studies and articles have been published over the past decade demonstrating the connection between gut and arthritis and showing us how inflammation starts deep in your digestive tract.
  • Your gut microbiomeAbout 100 trillion bacteria that live in you are key players in the health of your immune system. Therefore healthy intestines are of great importance for the prevention and treatment of inflammatory diseases.
  • Clearly, healing the gut, improving gut flora to heal joints, is a valid and evidence-based approach to treating arthritis.
