What Causes Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)?

Research Identifies Gluten As A Cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis

What causes Rheumatoid Arthritis? Recent studies indicate that common foods can cause rheumatoid arthritis by way of food intolerance.

You may have been told rheumatoid arthritis is 'incurable'. But when you begin to understand the terrible inflammatory effect that certain 'foreign' proteins can have on your joints - your thinking may shift.

Further - the research shows that identifying and removing those foods improves and frequently heals arthritis.

 

How common is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Most arthritis occurs as Osteoarthritis - but Rheumatoid arthritis is widely suffered too. They are both characterised as " inflammatory diseases". That is - there is serious inflammation at work deep in the tissues of the bone joints, tendons and cartilage of the body.

How common is arthritis?

  • Around 15% - or approximately 40 million Americans had some form of arthritis in 1995
  • By the year 2020, this number will have increased to 18% - 59 million people in the US alone

Women affected more than men

According to one paper published in 2007 - arthritis imposes a higher disease burden on women than men:

"Arthritis continues to burden the U.S. population as the leading cause of physical disability and affects women disproportionately: women with arthritis report greater prevalence of activity and work limitations, psychological distress, and severe joint pain than their male counterparts."

What causes Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by continuous inflammation in the joints - inflaming and swelling cartilage and tendon tissue. But what causes that inflammation?

Food Intolerance can cause Rheumatoid Arthritis

Accumulating research evidence points to semi-broken down food proteins - food intolerance. When you cannot fully digest certain food proteins (known as food intolerance) - the small intestine gets damaged:

The small intestine is a vital part of your body - because it is your last protection from toxic bacteria, viruses etc. and the outside world. The small intestine is a filter - and a sponge. It filters out the bad stuff for elimination from the body. . . . and it absorbs the goodies into our bloodstream to nourish us. . . . Filter and Absorb.

But some half broken down proteins damage the small intestine. You may have heard of Leaky Gut Syndrome. Suddenly there are millions of 'foreign' things in your bloodstream. And the body's First Response is always inflammation:

  • Inflammation in the skin results in eczema and psoriasis
  • Inflammation in the respiratory system leads to asthma and respiratory infection
  • Inflammation in the joints leads to rheumatoid arthritis

"I've been in the habit of reading up on health issues trying to figure this out for a long time.  I discovered the Healing Program on the internet . . .

(After trying the diet) ... my arthritis completely disappeared within about two days. My head has been clear every day and my emotional wellbeing has become a non-issue.  One day while driving in the car I caught a glance of my eyes in the rear view mirror and realized the dark circles were gone.  My eye sockets have completely changed color and don't look sunken anymore.

I decided my 13 year old daughter had a problem also. She tested it last Friday and broke out into hives on her face, had muscle spasms, and ached all over her spine and rib cage.

I can't thank you enough for ending the mystery of my health problems, but also for contributing to helping my daughter avoid a difficult life.  I'm so happy that my daughter is going to be able to avoid so simply her health problems.  I can tell she feels good now.

Thanks a lot." Monica S.

 

What is the treatment for Rheumatoid arthritis?

Temporary relief treatment: You can take daily medications or supplements from your doctor for a few hours relief. Some people choose to take continuous anti-inflammatory medicines for life. But many find there are difficult side-effects.

Permanent relief treatment: Find the actual cause of your rheumatoid arthritis (your food intolerance) and avoid that food. When you avoid that food - you'll begin feeling the effect within a week or two. Your amazing human body begins healing itself as soon as you remove the cause of the inflammation . . .

"Would you please publish my story. I took anti-inflamatories for nine years for stiff arthritic joints and back pain. According to my doctor I had to do it for life. But what with the side effects of strange moods and depresion I decided to look on the internet for answers and food allergy came up.

"The upshot is I used the Healing package and got some answers. At first I was a real skeptic but now I am a believer. . . . Getting on top of it all was a struggle at first but now I am a new person and guess what? No more anti-inflamatories. I am my old self again - the one my husband remembers!

"Deborah please ask your readers whether they really need all those anti-inflamatories or if it's better to find the cause of the inflammation and just remove it." Phyllis B. WA

 

Why did I get Rheumatoid Arthritis?

The food intolerance which causes Rheumatoid Arthritis is genetic . . . it's in your genes. You got it from your parents, grandparents and other ancestors. And if you have children - you will already have passed on that same genetic material to your sons and daughters.

Doesn't this make it imperative to investigate further? Understanding the full effects of food intolerance gives you the power to choose great health for your whole family.
