My name is larry cook, and i’m here to share with you that rheumatoid arthritis is treatable, and it can be reversed. If not all the way, at least significantly, when someone follows the healthy lifestyle. I have three specific remedies that I’m going to give you that, if you follow them and you have Rheumatoid Arthritis, you have a really good chance of either completely reversing Rheumatoid Arthritis, or at least significantly improving your health. So, let’s get started. Number one, you want to go see a naturopathic . That is,.
By far, the absolute most important thing that you can do for yourself, is to go visit a naturopathic . A naturopathic specializes in uncovering the root cause of health problems. So, whereas a medical is going to say Yeah, you have Rheumatoid Arthritis, let me give you some drugs and treat the symptoms, a naturopathic is going to look at your symptoms, go Yeah, you have RA, but let’s try to figure out what’s going on that’s causing all of these different symptoms. Generally speaking, there’s a lot.
Going on. it is not an easy thing to treat. i know this from talking with naturopathic s. So, let’s get into what a naturopathic is. A naturopathic attending a four year postgraduate medical school where they learned basically the same stuff that a medical learns, and they learn natural remedies, and how to treat the root cause of health issues. So, when you go see a naturopathic , you’re visiting someone who has an extensive amount of training in the health sciences. A licensed naturopathic is.
Someone who can order and interpret labs. they can treat and diagnose disease. they basically are on par with a medical , the only difference is they’re using natural remedies. So, to find a naturopathic in your area, what you want to do is Google naturopathic and your city, and look and see what comes up. That’s one option. In Washington State they’re called naturopathic physicians, so you might want to try that phrase as well in your Google search. Your other option is you can go to a website called.
Realizehealth , and there’s a whole list of naturopathic s on there as well. You can do a search on that website as well. Number two has to do with taking some supplements. The gut in people who have RA is usually very compromised. There’s all kinds of problems going on with the gut. When you take a supplement called Probiotics, which is friendly bacteria, you’re actually helping the gut heal. Now, there’s a lot more that needs to happen besides that, and your naturopathic is going to tell you about that, but you can get going.
Right now. so, probiotics, because it’s friendly bacteria that helps heal your gut. digestive enzymes, because there’s usually digestive issues going on simultaneously. Digestive enzymes help digest food, and one other supplement to take is fish oil. Fish oil helps reduce inflammation, and RA has a lot of inflammation going on. So, digestive enzymes, probiotics, and fish oil. That’s number two. Number three has to do with your food. This part is critical. It’s absolutely critical. You have to change your diet, and when I say change your diet,.
I mean probably a radical change. what that means is this, you want to eat whole, organic food all the time. You want to get rid of processed foods. A lot of people don’t know what processed means, so I’m going to help you understand it. Bread is processed. Pasta is processed. Muffins are processed. Bagels are processed. Anything that comes out of a box or a can is processed food, or a bag, such as bread. You want to get rid of all of that. You want to get rid of all the diet soda, all the Coke, all the sugar. Anything.
With sugar in it has to go. if you want to get better, you have to change your diet. There is no way around it. You just have to. If you put poor nutrition in, or no nutrition into your body on a regular basis, and you put poison into your body on a regular basis, you’re not going to get better. You have to put in really good food. Good food is whole, organic food. Stuff you find in the produce section on a very regular, if not very daily basis. So, that’s number three. Let’s recap. One, visit a naturopathic and follow.
Early Rheumatoid Arthritis al Guideline for Diagnosis and Management
Hello, i’m norman swan. Welcome to this program on the al guideline for diagnosis and management of early rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, debilitating disease which may last a lifetime. Early diagnosis and management can limit structural damage of the joints.
And improve quality and length of life as well as other health outcomes. This program is the second of four programs on the new musculoskeletal guidelines. The al guidelines for general practitioners and other primary healthcare professionals have been developed by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.
And approved by the national health and medical research council. This program will cover the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and discuss the recommended interventions for early RA in the Australian primary healthcare setting. As always, you’ll find a useful number of resources on the Rural Health Education Foundation’s website:.
I’ll introduce our panel to you. John Bennett is a GP at the University Health Service at the University of Queensland, and was a member of the College of GPs’ working group for the guideline. Welcome, John. Thank you. Lyn March is a rheumatologist at Royal North Shore .
In the university of sydney. Welcome, Lyn. Thanks, Norman. Lyn was also a member of the guideline working group. Christine Retallack is a community health nurse in rheumatology working in the Albany Rheumatology in Western Australia. Welcome, Christine. Thank you.
The community rheumatology nurse is a species unique to western australia? It doesn’t happen anywhere else in Australia. Perhaps we’ll find out it should. Yes. Last but not least, Louise Sharpe, associate professor and director of al Research in the School of Psychology at the University of Sydney. Welcome, Louise.
Louise has a strong interest in rheumatoid arthritis and similar diseases. To start, let’s hear from four women from Western Australia, Liz, Anne, Terri and Jill, about their experiences of having early RA. 1983 was quite a stressful year for me. I felt that I was overweight, and I was doing an exercise program at home.
Each morning i would wake up sore and stiff, and think, how unfit i am. So I would push myself harder until I was unable to sleep or unable to function very well at all. I couldn’t get out of bed a lot of the time. Overwhelming fatigue. Just really felt like I had a bad flu all the time.
