Rheumatoid arthritis



“I had arthritis for many years and have to go for acupuncture and tui na every week to relieve the pain. I cannot stand and walk for long before needing to sit down. The doctor was also saying that I may need an operation for my arthritic knees. My daughter-in-law told me about Darius’s ability as she herself has benefitted from the treatments. After a few sessions with Darius, I noticed a dramatic improvement in my condition, the pain went down and I can walk now without much pain. When I went to see the doctor, he commented that there is no longer a need for an operation.

In addition, my wife had pain in the neck for many years. After the sessions with Darius, the neck is much looser. For those struggling with illnesses, I highly recommend his services.”

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which joints become stiff and painful due to inflammation of the synovial membrane. Eventually it can lead to deformities, such as “ulnar deviation” in which the fingers slant away from the thumb. For those of you who are constantly battling the condition, it can drastically reduce the quality of your life. Of course, if you go for conventional treatment, some drugs commonly prescribed are NSAIDs like sulfasalazine, methotrexate, antimalarials and minocycline. They may also recommend physiotherapy or even surgery.

Besides these treatments, you may want to consider natural therapies that we can offer to alleviate some of these symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis is associated with parvovirus B19. They have also found the detection of antibodies to Borrelia outer surface protein A in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Hence it is important to treat the bacterial and viral infection using natural supplements. Food allergies can exacerbate the symptoms because these create inflammation in the body so identifying and eliminating these from your diet can have an important influence. Omega 3 fatty acids found in oily fish have also shown good results because the body uses them to make compounds that have an anti-inflammatory impact.

Other likely treatments would revolve around heavy metals detoxification as it is believed that the cells attack their own cells due to the presence of these toxins and interventions to reduce the emotions created by the major life stressors (research has linked marital stress to the onset of symptoms of arthritis).
