Rheumatoid arthritis is a debilitating disease that can strike in childhood, adolescence, or later in life.
The goal of AICA Atlanta’s Chiropractors is to offer the reader alternative ideas on how to help the body heal from this uncomfortable and painful condition.
Currently, traditional medicine treats rheumatoid with prescription medication.
These drugs are designed to decrease inflammation and modulate pain.
- Disease-Modifying Anti-rheumatic Drugs (DMARDs).
- NSAIDs. Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) can reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
- Steroids. Corticosteroid medications, such as prednisone, decrease inflammation and pain and delay joint damage.
These medications deliver temporary relief.
However, the bigger question that you should be asking is this: What is the cause of rheumatoid?
And, more importantly, what can I do right now to help my body recover so that I can gain a better quality of life?
Factors In The Development of Rheumatoid:
- Genetic factors.
- Leaky gut syndrome. Subsequent immune damage which leads to food and autoimmune sensitivities.
- Upper cervical (upper neck) trauma which leads to diminished nervous system function.
Natural Treatment Solutions You Can Use
Most chronic health disorders have multiple contributing factors.
One area of expanding research in the quest to uncover causative factors in autoimmunity is the gut-brain axis.
While strong painkillers and corticosteroids often lead to an improvement of symptoms, their long term use can be extremely detrimental to the GI track and liver. This leads to a cascade of harmful effects on the immune system.
Leaky gut aggravates autoimmune problems, but taking steps to correct this problem will aid in helping you to recover from rheumatoid, lupus and other related autoimmune disorders.
A little known procedure called Upper Cervical has been found to be quite potent at unleashing your body’s inherent abilities to heal and repair.Many people, not just rheumatoid sufferers, have experienced neck trauma that contributes to their health problems. Upper Cervical Care may be the link that you didn’t know you were missing.

Whiplash injuries can cause ligament damage resulting in abnormal function of the joints in the neck. In time, this leads to neurological compromise.
Since the upper neck neurology controls significant function within the body, it appears that neck injuries set the stage for a weakening of your body’s capacity for healing and repair.These injuries, combined with genetic predispositions, often set the stage for chronic health problems.
