At least once in your lifetime, you might have experienced the feeling of being betrayed by someone you trusted and banked on. Without wanting to sound all emotional and dramatic, that is precisely how you feel when you suffer from an autoimmune disease! Your own body, your own immune system that protects and defends your health, attacks its organs, resulting in one of the many conditions and diseases that fall under autoimmune diseases.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is one such disorder that causes the body to attack its own tissues. Let’s get a thorough understanding of what Rheumatoid Arthritis is and how it affects your body.
What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
This condition can be best described as a long-term inflammatory disorder affecting the tissues and joints of your body, including those in the hands and feet. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused as a result of the body’s immune system attacking its own tissues. In severe cases, the immune system might attack internal organs also.
Rheumatoid arthritis affects your joint linings, resulting in painful swelling. If left untreated, the inflammation associated with this condition can cause bone erosion and joint deformity.
What are the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis can affect your back, joints, or muscles. It causes stiffness, swelling, tenderness and weakness in the joints. You might develop anemia, feel fatigued. You are likely to experience lumps or redness on your skin. Other common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are dry mouth, flare, physical deformity, or sensation of pins and needles.
What are the types of Rheumatoid Arthritis?
There are different types of rheumatoid arthritis. Knowing the type you suffer from can help your healthcare provider provide the best type of treatment for you.
Seropositive Rheumatoid Arthritis: When you suffer from seropositive rheumatoid arthritis, you have a positive rheumatoid factor, which means you have the antibodies that cause your immune system to attack joints.
Seronegative Rheumatoid Arthritis: When you have a negative rheumatoid factor and a negative anti-CCP result, but you still experience rheumatoid arthritis symptoms, you may have seronegative rheumatoid arthritis. Eventually, you might develop antibodies, changing your diagnosis to seropositive rheumatoid arthritis.
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis: Juvenile idiopathic arthritis refers to rheumatoid arthritis in children below 17 years of age. Earlier known as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, the symptoms are the same as that of other types of rheumatoid arthritis, but they may also include inflammation in the eyes and issues with physical development.
What causes Rheumatoid Arthritis?
The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is uncertain. However, certain factors are thought to play a role in increasing the risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis or triggering its onset.
Factors that could increase your risk for rheumatoid arthritis include:
- Gender – Being a woman increases your risk
- Having a family history of rheumatoid arthritis
- Exposure to certain types of bacteria.
- Having a history of viral infections.
- Trauma or injury, such as fracture, dislocation of a joint, and ligament damage.
While there’s no cure for rheumatoid arthritis as per conventional medicine, physiotherapy and medication can help manage the symptoms and slow the disease’s progression. Most cases of rheumatoid arthritis can be managed with a class of medications called anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDS). This certainly does not mean that you have to live a life in pain and suffering if you have this condition.
Why homeopathy for Rheumatoid Arthritis?
While conventional medicine suggests that there is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, homeopathy aims at eradicating the disorder from its root. The homeopathic line of treatment is selected after a complete individualised examination and case-analysis, which includes taking into consideration your medical history, physical and mental constitution etc.
It is important to keep in mind that the homeopathic system is aiming to clear out the disorder from the body and not merely trying to suppress the symptoms or provide temporary relief. Thus, it could take a while before you experience relief. Homeopathy medicine stimulates your body’s own restorative systems to eradicate the disease.
