Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms

Question

My wife suffers from the affliction of rheumatoid arthritis, hence I research to find a product or information which may be of assistance in this case. Thank you for your information.

Dr. Leia’s Answer

Dear Manfred, Rheumatoid arthritis is a painful condition which seems to affect women more than men, and usually involves multiple joint pain and inflammation on both sides of the body.

The cause is unknown, except that it may be genetic and there have been implications that it may be associated with a viral, bacterial, or fungal infection, and cigarette smoking.

There are many alternative and complementary treatments for rheumatoid arthritis symptoms that have been used to decrease or alleviate the pain of this condition. One of the most effective is acupuncture. You might like to seek out an acupuncturist who has had experience in treating arthritis, joint pain, and inflammation. Along with regular acupuncture sessions, the acupuncturist might prescribe Chinese herbs to help with the condition.

Rheumatoid ArthritisAdditionally, taking fish oil capsules daily along with one of these other anti-inflammatory substances: Pycnogenol, glucosamine / chondroitin complex, MSM, or Celadrin capsules might further help to bring down the inflammation and prevent acute attacks.

Celadrin Helpful for Pain: Celadrin appears to be a newer, more potent nutraceutical which may prove to provide stronger pain relief than glucosamine and chondroitin. There is also a Celadrin creme which may be applied directly to the affected joints and combined with the Celadrin capsules, which will provide synergistic pain relief.

Keeping weight down to normal will also help to alleviate the stress on the joints and also decrease the pain.

It is also imperative to exercise daily and to rotate the joints through the complete range of motion so to keep the joints mobile and free.

Water AerobicsMassage with heat may be helpful, but when there is an acute flare-up, application of cold may be more helpful to alleviate the pain.

If you have a homeopathic practitioner in your area, he/she may be able to prescribe the correct homeopathic remedy for your wife after a thorough and careful interview, but not everyone may respond satisfactorily to homeopathy.

And still other people may find that magnet therapy or copper bracelets may further help with the pain.

I hope that this helps to point you in the right direction for a therapy which will be effective for you.

  1. I have been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis for my whole life, it started about in my early 30s back in the 90s. I would have my hand swell up to big red balloons around my knuckles and I wouldn’t be able to move the hands at all. What I did notice that helped relieve the pain, but not the swelling was Absorbine Jr. The arthritis cream made it easier with the stiffness and the pain when I had the worst conditions. The swelling and the movement were still bad though and sometimes that made it hard to do the easiest of tasks around the house. The thing I noticed at first and the early signs were pain and the swelling. The swelling where my knuckles would get red where the first indications that I had rheumatoid arthritis I searched for alternative treatments and started on rheumatoid arthritis herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, my symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the rheumatoid arthritis disease natural herbal formula.i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula,i am now active, i can now go about daily exercise!! Visit there website www. healthherbalclinic. net or email Info@ healthherbalclinic. net herbs are truly gift from God.
