Rheumatoid Arthritis – Introduction

Posted on: June 15th, 2015 by Gaurav Verma

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic disease of unknown cause affecting over 2 million adults in the USA . An inflammatory disease of the synovium, it results in pain, stiffness, swelling, deformity and, eventually, loss of function in the joints. Because there is currently no known cure or means of preventing RA, the American College of Rheumatology recommends the earliest possible diagnosis and treatment with disease-modifying anti-rheumatic agents to limit the degree of irreversible joint damage . Despite early detection, current treatment medications are limited in their efficacy and are frequently toxic.


Many patients look for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) options in coping with this debilitating disease. Research has indicated that people suffering from chronic pain, as in RA, and those dissatisfied with current treatment are very likely to seek alternative treatments, and an estimated 60–90% of persons with arthritis use CAM . Among the most widely used treatments are chiropractic and herbal therapies . This growing interest in alternative medical practices clearly indicates the need for more thorough investigation into the safety and efficacy of CAM. An earlier review conducted in 2000 was limited in that it excluded trials of herbal preparations against active comparators.

Lifestyle Changes

Improving your diet using a combination of my nutritional guidelines and nutritional typing. There are some general principles that seem to hold true for all nutritional types and these include:

Eliminating sugar and most grains

Having unprocessed, high-quality foods, organic and locally grown if possible

Eating your food as close to raw as possible

Getting plenty high-quality animal-based omega-3 fats, such as krill oil

Incorporating regular exercise into your daily schedule.

Address Emotional Trauma

Having an effective method to address the nearly universal underlying emotional distresses that are present in virtually all autoimmune diseases like RA.
The emotional trauma typically occurs before the age the conscious mind is formed, which is typically around the age of 5 or 6, though it can occur at any point in your life.

If that specific emotional insult is not addressed with an effective treatment modality, then the underlying emotional trigger will not be removed, allowing the destructive process to proceed.

In some cases, RA appears to be caused by an infection, and it is my experience that this infection is usually acquired when you have a stressful event that causes a disruption in your bioelectrical circuits, which then causes an impairment in your immune system.

This impairment predisposes you to developing the initial infection and also contributes to your relative inability to effectively defeat the infection.

Therefore, it’s very important to have an effective tool to address these underlying emotional trauma which can be addressed by Meridian Tapping Technique (MTT).

If you already have RA, the emotional trauma is best treated by a professional.

Resolve Vitamin D Deficiency

Getting your vitamin D levels checked and, if necessary, taking a supplement if you can’t get daily sun exposure. In the thousands of patients I saw it was unusual where a severe vitamin D deficiency was not present.
