What is it?
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory illness . It is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks normal tissue components as if they were invading pathogens. This illness affects about one percent of the world's population. The inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis primarily attacks the linings of the joints. However, the membranes lining the blood vessels, heart , and lungs may also become inflamed. The hands and feet are most often affected, but any joint lined by a membrane may be involved. The inflammation can be controlled by medication. If the inflammation is not controlled the joints may become deformed. Rheumatoid arthritis usually manifests itself over a period of a few months. However for some, the disease may appear over night. Rapid onset does not mean the individual is at greater risk of disease progression.
Rheumatiod Arthritis may have different affects on different people. Some individuals may experience extreme pain while others may not. Patients often suffer cycles of severe and light symptoms.

Rheumatoid arthritis (rue-ma-TOYD arth-write-tis) involves inflammation in the lining of the joints and/or other internal organs. RA typically affects many different joints. It is typically chronic, which means it lasts a long time, and can be a disease of flare-ups. RA is a systemic disease that affects the entire body and is one of the most common forms of arthritis. It is characterized by the inflammation of the membrane lining the joint, which causes pain, stiffness, warmth, redness and swelling. The inflamed joint lining, the synovium, can invade and damage bone and cartilage. Inflammatory cells release enzymes that may digest bone and cartilage. The involved joint can lose its shape and alignment, resulting in pain and loss of movement.

Revised November 1999 Handout on Health: Rheumatoid Arthritis This booklet is for people who have rheumatoid arthritis, as well as for their family members, friends, and others who want to find out more about this disease. The booklet describes how rheumatoid arthritis develops, how it is diagnosed, and how it is treated, including what patients can do to help manage their disease. It also highlights current research efforts supported by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) and other components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). If you have further questions after reading this booklet, you may wish to discuss them with your doctor. Features of Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints. It has several special features that make it different from other kinds of arthritis (see information box below). For example, rheumatoid arthritis generally occurs in a symmetrical pattern. This means that if one knee or hand is involved, the other one is also. The disease often affects the wrist joints and the finger joints closest to the hand. It can also affect other parts of the body besides the joints (see illustrations below). In addition, people with the disease may have fatigue, occasional fever, and a general sense of not feeling well (malaise).

Inflammation: The Battle Within Inflammation is a natural defense of the body to protect against foreign substances or injury, but it can cause problems in certain diseases. What Is C-Reactive Protein (CRP)? As a blood test, CRP is not specific. A high result serves as a general indication of acute inflammation. Doctors can utilize the CRP test to assess the effectiveness of a specific arthritis treatment and monitor periods of disease flareup. Does your doctor order this test routinely. Atkins and Arthritis The Atkins Diet, the Zone, and the South Beach Diet are all low carb diets which have recently generated alot of publicity, not all of which has been favorable. Low carb diets have potential negative health consequences such as increasing the risk of gout, osteoporosis, and more. Perhaps eating less and exercising more is still the way to go.

What Is It? If your question is not answered here, please contact one of our information specialists. JRA is the most common form of arthritis in children. It may be a mild condition that causes few problems over time, but it can be much more persistent and cause joint and tissue damage in other children. JRA can produce serious complications in more severe cases. Arthritis is best described by four major changes in the joints that may develop. The most common features of JRA are: joint inflammation, joint contracture (stiff, bent joint), joint damage and/or alteration or change in growth. Other symptoms include joint stiffness following rest or decreased activity level (also referred to morning stiffness or gelling), and weakness in muscles and other soft tissues around involved joints. However, because JRA affects each child differently, your child may not experience all of these changes. Children also vary in the degree to which they are affected by any particular symptom.

    Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis
    Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a complex, systemic disease. Therefore, treatment of the disease is complex and involves many aspects of the patient's life. Health care practitioners must work together to develop an individualized plan for the ultimate benefit of the patient. Except in rare cases when a patient with RA may spontaneously go into full remission, there is no cure for the disease. However, the disease can be controlled in most patients. Below are seven areas in which the practitioner and the patient must work together to achieve the most desirable outcomes. Treatment of the disease can be broadly categorized into the following general areas: Click Here to Return to the Table of Contents

    13. My Victory Over Rheumatoid Arthritis
    The testimony of a woman who overcame rheumatoid arthritis using Edgar Cayce's remedies.
    My Victory Over Rheumatoid Arthritis
    By Loretta Godbout
    I am writing this to share with you my recovery from rheumatoid arthritis by following a single reading by Edgar Cayce (951-1) which was published in There is a River
    In 1959, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and I was crippled for the ensuing 8 years. The disease was so severe that my knees were greatly swollen and I was in constant pain. Suggested medical treatments consisted of scraping the bones, using long needles to draw off fluid from the joints, and joint replacement surgery, all of which did not hold promise of a permanent solution.
    In my mind, I kept thinking that there had to be help, that the body could be healed and, after eight years, I found myself in a Woolworth's Dime Store in Long Beach, California. I saw a book on a revolving stand entitled, There is a River . I picked it up and then put it back saying to myself, "Loretta, you have books upon books, and you haven't read those you have, you don't need another one." Two weeks later, with the title ringing constantly in my mind, I returned to Woolworth's and bought the book. Once I began reading it, I couldn't put it down and I stayed up all night, eventually finding the case histories published in the back of the book.
    There was one case of arthritis for a young girl of 18. I read that reading and immediately began making two lists, one for things to do and one for things to buy. I had difficulty finding everything I needed, especially Atomidine, and eventually I found it through Ingram's Pharmacy in Virginia Beach.

    A New, Breakthrough Discovery Forces Pain Away
    By John Ellis
    A s we enter the 21 st century, the most promising pain relief therapy is biomagnet therapy. Compared to these other pain relief therapies, biomagnet therapy has at least 6 advantages causing its explosive, worldwide growth today.
    1. Biomagnets relieve the root cause of pain, not just the symptoms only. 2. Biomagnets are safe. They have no known side effects since our bodies already live in the earth’s natural, magnetic field. 3. Biomagnets are simple. Anyone can use them in the privacy of your own home. 4. Biomagnets are non-consumable. You don’t have to buy another bottle or schedule another appointment every month! 5. Biomagnets work quickly, often in only a few minutes, sometimes in weeks. 6. Biomagnets are affordable. Especially since you can use them, again and again, for years.
