Has Research Found a New Cause for Arthritis?
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a common chronic disease affecting so many worldwide.
It causes joint pain swelling and inflammation, beginning at any age but more likely between the ages of thirty and fifty and then becoming most common among those in their seventies.
Sadly, it can get worse quickly so early diagnosis and treatment is important.
How is chronic rheumatoid arthritis currently treated?
There are three main ways:
1. Physical therapies.
2. Surgery such as knee and hip replacements.
3. Medication. Drugs used to treat rheumatoid arthritis include painkillers, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (INSAIDs), disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and steroids (also known as corticosteroids). Unfortunately, many need to take more than one drug as different drugs work in different ways. They can also be changed from time to time.
While these are necessary for some people, natural treatments can also make a huge impact in terms of helping lower pain, reduce swelling, prevent further joint damage and increase someone’s quality of life. A big plus is that natural treatments won’t cause unwanted side effects.

What have researchers found out?
In a study in the UK (funded by the Versus Arthritis Charity and UK Research and Innovation plus the Medical Research Council), researchers found that damage to the lining of the gut, making it leaky, plays a key role in disease, allowing bacteria to cross the gut lining into the body, intensifying inflammation in the stomach and the joints.
In addition they have identified existing stomach repairing drugs used for the digestive disorders - coeliac disease and Crohn's disease - that could be used to treat rheumatoid arthritis.
Laboratory tests on human tissue and mice samples found a drug known as AT1001 (currently in clinical trials for coeliac disease) is effective at mending the gut and relieving symptoms while vereirnon (a treatment already being used to treat Crohn's disease) is another potential candidate. Researchers are now working towards a clinical trial involving one or more of these drugs in humans for rheumatoid arthritis.
But it is not all about taking drugs...
Do arthritis sufferers have alternative choices of treatment?
There are lots of ways to help alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis:
Eating an anti-inflammatory diet
Foods high in antioxidants as well as whole, non-processed foods can help to control RA symptoms. A healthy diet would also include fats like olive oil and coconut oil with plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits, bone broth, high-sulphur foods and as well as those that are naturally high in omega-3s such as wild-caught fish and nuts and seeds. At the same time, try to avoid those foods that actually trigger inflammation - added sugar, synthetic ingredients, hydrogenated/trans fats, fast foods and common allergens such as gluten or pasteurized dairy.
This is vital for controlling symptoms as well as managing joint inflammation. Pain in the joints can often feel worse when you have been inactive. Ideally, the best type of activity is one that is low impact and won't put too much stress on sensitive joints. Examples include cycling, walking, swimming, water aerobics and yoga. They should try to combine aerobic activity with strength training and stretching. But rest is also helpful.
Managing any stress along with a good night's sleep
Both of these will allow joints to heal especially when there is increased inflammation, pain, swelling or stiffness. By practicing relaxation techniques, you will manage the stress and sleep more soundly.
Controlling pain in a more natural way
There are plenty of techniques to help reduce pain including massage, therapy, acupuncture or acupressure as well as hot and cold treatments (examples include ice packs or warm baths). H-Arthritis Formula is the ideal natural essential oils product to apply topically to relieve arthritis discomfort safely and gently.
Helping to reduce inflammation with supplements
- Omega-3 - fish oil or flax seed oil
- Proteolytic enzymes
Interestingly, women are three times more likely to develop RA than men.
