Dr. Brody’s Natural Approach to Rheumatoid Arthritis
In the disease Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), the body is attacking its own joints. This is due to a number of factors but truth be told most of the time the underlying cause might be hard to find. Rheumatoid Arthritis is a type of connective tissue disease where antibodies are being directed to your joints. This leads to; painful joints, swelling, warm joints, bone deformities, pain, bumps under the skin, and possibly weight loss.
Calming down your immune system and controlling inflammation are key steps in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is where diet and nutrition come into play. It has been known for many years that Blood type O’s and arthritis are linked. This is due to a chemical called Wheat Germ Agglutinin aka WGA. This WGA likes to bind to blood type O receptors on your red blood cells and it’s this process that gets your body’s attention. This process gets noticed by your immune system and the disease process ensues. This is a natural approach to the treatment and management to Rheumatoid Arthritis by a Naturopathic Physician is crucial.
Supplements That Can Help
- Fish Oil–This is very anti-inflammatory and a few grams a day can go a long way at controlling pain.
- Boswellia–This herb has been used since biblical days and recently has been shown to help with stubborn joint pain.
- Glucosamine–This supplement can really help those who have joint and muscle pain especially if they are Blood Type A.
- Arnica–A homeopathic over the counter drug of Arnica can be bought at most stores. I usually recommend a topical cream or gel, that when applied to sore joints or muscles can help ease tension and keep inflammation at bay.
