Is rheumatoid arthritis an autoimmune disease

Harrison Tags: autoimmune disease, celiac disease, detox, diabetes, gut health, healing, immune disorders, immune health, immune system, natural health, prevention, Sick, superfoods (Natural News) Scientists have discovered over 80 million autoimmune diseases, and over 80 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from one or more of these diseases. Being in such a state is a struggle as it is, but having to buy expensive medicine believing it will treat the disease is even more distressing. Autoimmune diseases develop when a person’s immune system mistakes part of their body as foreign. So it produces and releases autoantibodies that attack your healthy cells. No one knows exactly why the immune system commits such a mistake, but researchers found that some kinds of this disease can be genetically transferred like lupus and multiple sclerosis. Other types of autoimmune disease include Type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, … [Read more...] about Autoimmune disease doesn’t have to take over your life

When it hits, it slows you down, limits your movements to a limp, and makes you lag behind the pack. Such is the case report published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, where a woman had developed the condition a month after giving birth. However, the researchers involved in the case turned to Ayurvedic principles in addressing the condition. As a result, the patient, who was diagnosed with amavata, was successfully treated. The subject of the case was a 27-year old mother who had just given birth by caesarian section. The patient said that the symptoms started the following month after … [Read more...] about Ayurveda’s panchakarma modality found to be a safe and effective treatment for postpartum rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis can have a considerable impact on daily life. Depending on your symptoms and their severity, you may need long-term treatment to reduce joint damage. We have located the best apps to help individuals with rheumatoid arthritis to navigate through day-to-day challenges. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects around 1.3 million adults in the United States. In the condition, the immune system mistakenly attacks the joints, which causes inflammation and swelling. Eventually, irreversible joint deformity may occur. Women tend to be two to three times as likely as men to be affected by rheumatoid arthritis, and 20–70 percent of those working at onset may be disabled between 7 and 10 years later. Although there is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs can help with remission of symptoms in some people. Other medications, therapies including physical and occupational therapy, and surgery may also minimize joint … [Read more...] about The 10 best apps for rheumatoid arthritis
New research suggests that a bacterium found in cow's milk and beef may lead to rheumatoid arthritis in people who are already genetically predisposed. The bacterium may be a common trigger for both rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease. Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that affects more than 1.3 million adults — the majority of whom are women — in the United States. Crohn's disease is also an inflammatory disease, and the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation say that it affects up to 780,000 U.S. adults. What do these two diseases have in common, apart from being characterized by inflammation? Quite a lot, actually, according to new research recently published in the journal Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology. Both of these conditions share a similar genetic background and are often treated with similar immunosuppressants, because both illnesses are autoimmune disorders. These similarities intrigued the authors of the new research, who are: Saleh … [Read more...] about Could a bacterium found in milk trigger rheumatoid arthritis?
