Treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis

The human body is amazing. It knows when to fight off foreign pathogens such as viruses and bacteria and can—in most cases—heal itself quite nicely. But for the 23 million people suffering with autoimmune conditions such as lupus, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, something has gone awry. The immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells, resulting in inflammation, pain and tissue damage.

Drugs Are Not the Answer to Treat Theumatoid Arthritis

Conventional medicine offers few therapies for patients with autoimmune disorders aside from nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), steroids, interferon, immunosuppressents and other heavy-duty medications. But these temporary, side-effect-riddled fixes are far from safe and rarely reverse the underlying causes of these conditions. 

Fortunately, a number of safe, side-effect-free therapies are available. Although they’re rarely used, especially by conventional physicians, when they are, treatments for rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions can make a tremendous difference in patients’ lives. Sue Grundy is a perfect example. 

Sue's Remarkable Story With Rheumatoid Arthritis

After 10 years with the condition, the only treatments for rheumatoid arthritis her doctors recommended were drugs and more drugs. Her reluctance to take them didn’t go over well. At one point, she was told she would be in a wheelchair within three years if she didn’t comply. That’s when she started looking for alternative treatments for rheumatoid arthritis and came to the Whitaker Wellness Institute, where she was treated with stem cell therapy, diet changes, IV nutrientsmicrocurrent therapy, acupuncture and reflexology. 

She did well during her stay at the clinic, and continued to improve after she returned home. “Your treatments for rheumatoid arthritis have given me back my energy. While I still require a good night’s sleep, I am no longer yawning all the time. I have some aches and pains in my joints but the constant pain in my back is gone. My memory has improved somewhat as well. All in all I have come home with hope and renewed energy and purpose. There have been some real positive changes to my health.”
