Introduction of Rheumatoid Arthritis

"Do any of your joints swell up or pain frequently?

Do any of your joints feel stiff and locked especially in the mornings?

If yes, then you may be suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis. "

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation and possible deformity of various joints.

This condition not only affects the tissues surrounding the joints (muscles, tendons or ligaments) but may also leave its impact on other organs of the body (skin, blood vessels, heart, lungs and muscles).

1% of the global population is currently suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis with the disease showing preference for women than men. Today, it is considered one of the most major, disabling diseases in the world.

The onset of the illness is very difficult to pick up. It usually begins as a very trivial pain in a single joint, or sometimes, a florid picture can be witnessed. In the former, the individual tends to ignore it, while in the later, the disease has usually progressed to a more serious stage. Due to this, early diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis becomes difficult.

The mainstay of modern medicines is to give partial relief to the patient with painkillers and immune-modulating drugs, whereas Homeopathy helps in giving ease to the patient by halting the further spread of the disease, prevents complications and does not burden the patient with unnecessary side effects.
