Are you overwhelmed by the pain of RA and find it hard to even do the simplest tasks?
Perhaps you are also struggling with seemingly unrelated GI symptoms like gas and constipation?
Yearning for a better pain management solution... beyond just taking a daily pain killer which wears off in a matter of hours?
Then it is time to look at a better approach to addressing the root causes of RA!
Rheumatoid arthritis can be hard to diagnose in its early stages because the early signs and symptoms mimic symptoms of many other illnesses. There is no one blood test or physical finding to confirm the diagnosis.
Diagnosing RA typically requires a physical exam of your joints, along with determining your range of motion and checking for tenderness as well as muscle strength.
In addition, it's critical to run the appropriate blood tests to check for certain markers like elevated antibodies, normally present in autoimmune conditions.
X-rays, MRI, and ultrasound tests may be used to track the progression or assess the severity of the disease in your body.
In the conventional medicine approach to RA, you will most likely be prescribed traditional disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) or extremely expensive injection biologics like Enbrel, Remicade, Humira, Simponi, Taltz, or Stelara.
These drugs ease symptoms by dialing down inflammation – but do nothing to resolve the underlying root causes of RA or stop the progression of RA. As such, they are extremely expensive band-aids that don't fix the root problem.
The functional medicine approach to treating RA is a far more holistic approach.
Instead of just assessing the progression of your condition, we focus on identifying the root causes triggering your RA and adjusting the lifestyle and biological imbalances that are at the core of rheumatoid arthritis.
At Infinite Wellness. we start with an extremely thorough assessment of your past medical history – including any stealth infections, nutritional deficiencies, and anything that could trigger autoimmune disorders.
For example, gut imbalances play a huge role in most autoimmune cases and this is one of many areas that conventional practitioners typically miss when dealing with RA... because they haven’t been trained in functional medicine.
Supported by advanced functional lab testing, we assess all the markers that cause progression and flare-ups, helping us craft a very personalized healing protocol.
As part of our autoimmune program, we devise a full body-balancing protocol that not only addresses your RA, but also rebalances other areas that may be causing havoc – including diet, gut health, lifestyle, stress factors, sleep habits, and more.
If you have been experiencing symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and are looking for answers beyond symptomatic treatment options, schedule a discovery to consult today so you can see what your best next steps are.
