Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis or RA is an autoimmune disease. It is a chronic disease that causes joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased movement of the joints. Small joints in the hands and feet are most commonly affected. Sometimes RA can affect your organs, such as eyes, skin, or lungs.

Causes :
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis  : Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakenly sends inflammation to your own healthy tissue. The immune system creates a lot of inflammation that is sent to your joints causing joint pain and swelling.
  • Genetic : There is evidence that autoimmune conditions run in families.
Risk Factors :
  • Age : The onset of RA is highest among adults in their sixties
  • Sex : More common in females
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
Symptoms :
  • Painful, warm, and swollen joints.
  • Stiffness in more than one joint. Joint stiffness is usually worse in the mornings and after inactivity.
  • Tenderness and swelling in more than one joint
  • Fever, fatigue or tiredness, weakness, loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Dry eyes and mouth : Sjogren’s syndrome
Homeopathic Invention :

As per the latest research in homeopathy,

A self-devaluation conflict causes rheumatoid arthritis. The conflict is experienced, through humiliation, abuse, failure (at work, at school, in sports, in a relationship, as a parent or partner), poor performance, or feelings of shame and guilt. The loss of status, the loss of a workplace, retirement, illness or injuries, aging, or the loss of a person, who made one feel appreciated and needed.

Homoeopathic Approach :
Homeopathic medicines act on the root cause of the disease. They reduce the inflammatory process by correcting the overactive immune system, thereby relieving the symptoms instead of temporary pain relief. Homeopathic medicines increase the immunity of patients and prevent joint and organ damage. Homeopathy improves joint function and overall well-being. It also helps to reduce long-term complications.
