Rheumatoid / Joint Disorders


Systemic arthritic and other autoimmune disorders cause great suffering. Pain, disability, fatigue, loss of work and social life are all problems patients must endure, in addition to numerous side effects that are caused by utilizing medical pharmaceuticals. Patients with rheumatoid diseases suffer not only with inflammatory joint and muscle pain but also with systemic complaints such as chronic fatigue,  depression, gastrointestinal dysfunction, etc.,

The patients whose cases are presented here had been to Medical Physicians and under drug therapy which failed to bring about improvement in the their condition and generally resulted in a further decline in the patient’s state of health.

A serious error made by both medical and many “alternative/complementary” practitioners is to address the patient’s disease name rather than the individual nature of the patient themself. Even where two patients have the same medical diagnosis (e.g. rheumatoid arthritis) it is important to analyze each person as an individual to see what is occurring in their case.

To reverse rheumatoid diseases requires hard work by doctor and patient. These are conditions in which no part of the patient’s family and medical history, lifestyle or biochemistry can be overlooked. These conditions generally take an extended amount of time to evolve into and usually take an extended amount of time to evolve out of. How encouraging for the patient, however, is thenew attitude and reality that reversing these condition can occur and a life of continuing disability and endless suffering need not be the case.

The medical perspective on rheumatic disorders is a bleak one of progressive disability, reduced mobility and a lifetime of suffering. One need only visit a Medical Rheumatologist’s office to see the legions of patients with arthritis and rheumatism taking toxic medications, suffering ongoing side effects and getting continually worse year after year. Little thought is given to the individual needs of the patient, and causal factors are left untouched. The patient becomes a pawn in their own sad state of affairs going back visit after visit for drugs that draw the patient deeper and deeper into a state of imbalance and toxicity. The following examples from our files illustrate that this tragic scenario need not be the case if causes of ill health are removed and the essentials of health are supplied.

Recent Case Studies

The following case studies include those who have been medically diagnosed with a variety of Rheumatoid disorders including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis etc. Improvements in each case resulted from addressing causal factors and employing health promoting nutritional and hygienic steps not through the treatment of any medical condition. Every patient is different and results may vary from patient to patient.
