Homeopathy for Arthritis and Rheumatism
Different forms of Arthritis most of the times results in joint pain caused by which is recognized as one of the most widespread chronic illnesses in today’s world, in particular among the aging population. In
general according to translation from the Latin language, arthritis means joint inflammation.
There are different forms of this medical disorder and not all of them caused by the development of the bacteria in the joints.
Modern medicine knows 100+ different kinds of arthritis – some of them are more common, some less. The shortest list of the forms of this medical condition includes the following: Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Giant Cell Arteritis (GCA), Pseudo Gout – CPPD, Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), Fibromyalgia (FMS), Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus) in Children and Adolescents, but there are many more diseases for which initial or secondary arthritis is one of the main issues.
Still, there are four primary forms of this medical condition that every physician has to evaluate and treat almost every day. In the article below we will discuss these four kinds of the joint diseases.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis;
Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent of all types of the joint diseases. The core of the problem is the loss of the cartilage – slippery part of the joint that makes the tips of the bones glide slickly over each other and decreases the jolts inside the joints. Because of the loss of cartilage, the osteoarthritis patients start to experience stiffness and pain during even minor movements.
As a result, of the cartilage the osteophytes (the bone outgrows) start to develop and the pain increases even more.
Contrary, rheumatoid arthritis impacts almost 1% of the population of all ages, but 80% of the affected individuals are women. This fact not scientifically explained yet. Rheumatoid arthritis develops more aggressive than osteoarthritis, affects younger age, and in 10 years from the beginning of the illness 30% of patients become disabled.
Rheumatism unlikely impacts the connective tissues like joint bursa, ligaments, and tendons, but not joints itself.
The most usual type of connective tissue disorder is Fibromyalgia. This disease impacts more than 2% of the population, and again, women are suffering from Fibromyalgia much more often than men. The most common complaints physician hears from Fibromyalgia patients are musculoskeletal aches with sensitive spots at numerous particular positions. Fibromyalgia is often accompanying with insomnia and little energy, migraines-like headaches, and IBS.
Gout is a type of arthritis that produces acute episodes of the sharp pain that are accompanying with noticeable swelling and sensitivity. Most often Gout affects toe, ankles, and knees. Gout starts when the level of uric acid increases in the blood stream because of the inability of the organism to eliminate the access of this natural chemical that typically produced by kidneys. Typically Gout impacts one joint per attack; however in the chronic phases, Gout may impact two, three or more joints at a time. This type of joint disease affects men much more often than women.
Some factors may increase a chance of Arthritis development.
- Age. Osteoarthritis usually attacks elderly people. However, Rheumatism physicians see more often in young age. Fibromyalgia also a disease of middle age.
- Gender. Osteoarthritis and Rheumatism develop significantly more often in women, but Gout almost only in men.
- Obesity. This condition is the risk factor for both Osteoarthritis and Gout because extra weight stimulates wearing of the cartilage inside of the joints on the ends of bones.
- Work or sport-related factors. Some kinds of activities are the risk factors for osteoarthritis. Sport related injuries that are accompanying with strains and sprains of the ligaments around the joints decrease the ability of these ligaments to support the joints, and it makes the joints more vulnerable to shocks and jolts, causing a development of the osteoarthritis.
Unfortunately, the modern treatment of arthritis is limited to use of three main groups of pharmaceutical drugs:
1. Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs for Arthritis:
2. Painkillers for Arthritis:
3. Corticosteroids for Arthritis:
The problem is that since arthritis itself is not a life-threatening medical condition and nobody ever died because of arthritis, the drugs used for a treatment of this illness are very harmful and may cause a lot of serious side effects.
The homeopathic approach for treatment of Arthritis
Homeopathic treatment is 100% harmless and produces no side effects. This is a known fact, and it forces physicians to consider homeopathy as a choice #1 in the projected treatment plan. Homeopathy is a 100% natural and organic pharmacological approach that practices tremendously small amounts of elements from the herbs, trees, microelements, and fauna to enhance an individual’s organism ability to defense and treat itself. Homeopathy had been established based on the principle “similia similibus curentur” that can be interpreted from the Latin language as “like cures like”. Homeopathic medicine forces internal systems to boost an individual’s self-healing aptitudes.
Homeopathic treatment for Arthritis in Clinical Studies
A clinical study that was in print in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology (1980, 9, pp. 453-459) revealed that 82% of individuals who are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis reported higher or lower degree of improvement after treatment for one month with homeopathic remedies only. 11% of individuals from the control group that received a placebo homeopathic treatment along with conventional modern pharmaceutical drugs reported similar relief.
This clinical trial revealed that the individuals treated with customized homeopathic prescriptions performed significantly better in all aspects.
During the year of 2014, the effectiveness of treatment for Arthritis at Viva Healthy Life reached the record of 88%. That means that from every 100 patients 88 reported, at least, noticeable improvement. All homeopathic treatment performed by the medical director of the Center, internationally known physician and homeopath Victor Tsan.
“The homeopathy performs better than average when remedies prescribed by a skilled homeopathic practitioner. A well-trained in homeopathy expert always uses a holistic approach to finding the core of the medical condition and the factors that worsen or improve symptoms. Having this entire information homeopath can choose very specific for this particular patient remedies to address somatic, passionate, psychological and even transcendent aspects of the disease” Dr. Tsan says.
