Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) 

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is one of the most common autoimmune disorders – a disease caused by the immune system attacking the body’s own tissues.

This can be due to an infection, tissue injury or emotional trauma in people with a genetic predisposition. While conventional medicine treats RA with steroids and other immunosuppressive medications, natural treatments and lifestyle changes are less toxic and may moderate autoimmunity and help control the symptoms of RA.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects joint linings, causing painful swelling. Over long periods of time, the inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis can cause bone erosion and joint deformity.
