UNDERSTANDING AND HEALING RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS
NOTE: The following is a special report explaining the symptoms and causes of rheumatoid arthritis. RA is a painful and debilitating disease that has proven to be very difficult to treat effectively.
In this report we will explain the reasons why it is difficult to treat and tell you about a group of supplements that can help people with RA feel better.
The supplements talked about at the end of this report, can help to heal the brain and liver and fight many diseases including RA.
What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease, mainly characterized by inflammation of the lining of the joints. It can lead to long-term joint damage, resulting in chronic pain, loss of function and disability.
If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, or a loved one does, you know how poorly most rheumatoid arthritis healing strategies and remedies work. It is a very tough illness to deal with as most of the time what the doctors prescribe fixes the symptoms for a short while, but never the core of the illness. Long-term use of drugs and medications will often make you more ill in the long run as these are toxic to the body. (They are altered from nature so they can be patented, and once a natural molecule is altered, it can’t be used properly by the body and becomes toxic to it.)
Rheumatoid arthritis, along with all other autoimmune diseases, is a byproduct of a weak immune system. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease, mainly characterized by inflammation of the lining of the joints. It can lead to long-term joint damage, resulting in chronic pain, loss of function and disability.
An autoimmune disease is a harmful immune response against healthy and normal tissues and substances in the body. It attacks the cells using inflammation to try and get rid of pathogens and infections in the body. This doesn’t succeed, as inflammation is not meant to fight pathogens and does a poor job of it. Rheumatoid arthritis is another name for a handful of symptoms, also known as side effects of your body’s struggle with pathogens and toxins.
Although rheumatoid arthritis can have many different symptoms, joints are always affected. Rheumatoid arthritis almost always affects the joints of the hands such as the knuckle joints, wrists, elbows, knees, ankles, and/or feet. The larger joints, such as the shoulders, hips, and jaw may be affected. The vertebrae of the neck are sometimes involved in people who have had the disease for many years. Usually at least two or three different joints are involved on both sides of the body, often in a symmetrical (mirror image) pattern.
The usual joint symptoms include the following:
• Stiffness: Limited range of motion
• Inflammation: Redness, tenderness, and warmth are the hallmarks of inflammation.
• Swelling: The area around the affected joint is swollen and puffy.
• Nodules: These are hard bumps that appear on or near the joint.
• Pain: Pain in rheumatoid arthritis has several sources. Pain can come from inflammation or swelling of the joint and surrounding tissues or from working the joint too hard.
Rheumatoid arthritis can also produce diffuse inflammation in the lungs, pericardium, pleura, and sclera, and also nodular lesions, most common in subcutaneous tissue under the skin.
Possible Causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Although the cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, autoimmunity plays a pivotal role in its chronic nature and progression.
About 1% of the world's population is afflicted by rheumatoid arthritis, women three times more often than men. Onset is most frequent between the ages of 40 and 50, but people of any age can be affected. It can be a disabling and painful condition, which can lead to substantial loss of functioning and mobility. It is diagnosed chiefly on symptoms and signs, but also with blood tests (especially a test called rheumatoid factor) and X-rays. Because it is a chronic disease, RA continues indefinitely and may not go away. Frequent flares in disease activity can occur. RA is a systemic disease, which means it can affect other organs in the body. Early diagnosis and treatment of RA is critical if you want to continue living a productive lifestyle. Studies have shown that early aggressive treatment of RA can limit joint damage.
Since rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, we recommend products that build your immune system and also help with the inflammation in the joints.
And you will have a number of other symptoms caused by autoimmune diseases. Read about them on the Autoimmune Symptoms report on this website.
In fact, many of the conditions below are related to a compromised Immune System as well:
* Menstrual cycle difficulty
* Low endurance and
* Chronic fatigue
Causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Although there is no single cause of rheumatoid arthritis, experts think that about 60% of cases are caused by mycoplasma, 20% chronic viral infection and 20% toxic overload.
In order to understand what to do to reverse rheumatoid arthritis, you need to understand the underlying causes of it -- and every other autoimmune disease for that matter.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Factor #1: PATHOGENS
By far the main cause of RA, maybe 60% of the time, is pathogens.
More exactly, chronic infections caused by small pathogens like viruses, prions and mycoplasma. When your body can’t get rid of these pathogens, RA or some other autoimmune disease develops. These pathogens reside in your cells.
Because they are in your cells, your immune system (when it eventually becomes worn out trying to get rid of them the way it normally does) attacks the cells that have pathogens in them. It attacks the cells using inflammation to try and get rid of those pathogens. This doesn’t succeed as inflammation is not meant to fight pathogens and does a poor job of it.
Unfortunately, the inflammation damages your cells in what is described as an autoimmune response. It’s not supposed to happen this way. And it doesn’t start out happening this way.
At first your immune system uses what are called TH-1 immune cells to attack these pathogens. These TH-1 cells are designed to deal with pathogens. They are the right choice. But with some pathogens, the TH-1 cells don’t succeed. The pathogens, like the Epstein Barr viruses, stay in the body and aren’t eliminated.
So at some point the TH-1 side of the immune system runs out of juice, and the inflammatory, TH-2 side takes over the job. In fact, sometimes the pathogens trick the immune system to activating the TH-2 side of the immune system while deactivating the TH-1 side.
So, your immune system is out of balance, attacking your cells with the over-responding TH-2 inflammatory immune system cells, while your TH-1 immune cells are deactivated, worn out and not working.
One aspect of dealing with rheumatoid arthritis is to modulate the immune system -- to bring it back into balance. However, it is even more important to eliminate the pathogens that initiate the autoimmune response.
Sometimes pathogens are not the underlying cause of rheumatoid arthritis. Instead, exposure to toxins -- lots of toxins -- is the cause.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Factor #2: CHRONIC VIRAL INFECTIONS
Infections are found in a very high percentage of people with autoimmune diseases. Often more than one type. The infections are bacterial, viral and/or from various types of mycoplasma. In some cases these infections are opportunistic. In other words they occur because the immune system has been wiped out and can’t fight these infections off. (The Th-1 side is worn out.) Or they may be the underlying cause of the malfunctioning immune system.
According to Dr. Paul Cheney, one of the top autoimmune doctors in the world, viruses, especially the herpes viruses, and some bacteria and mycoplasma, make proteins that mimic IL-10. This tricks the immune system into activating Th-2 cells instead of the Th-1 cells that are supposed to activate and kill these viruses. They trick the immune system into thinking that the threat is coming from the Th-2 side. So the immune system shifts from the Th-1 mode that would attack the viruses or mycoplasma, to the Th-2 mode that does not. They increase their chances of survival by diverting the immune system. And literally initiate an autoimmune condition.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Factor #3: TOXINS
Normally, when toxins enter your body, they are carried to the liver where they are filtered out, neutralized and eliminated. But when you are exposed to more toxins entering your body than the liver can detoxify, your body ends up sticking toxins in cells. Some of these toxins seem to be so irritating that your immune system attacks your cells in an attempt to eliminate these toxins, creating an autoimmune disease like rheumatoid arthritis.
Because pathogens always produce toxic waste, you also end up with too many toxins when your rheumatoid arthritis is caused by pathogens. If you can get the liver working better, so that it can successfully eliminate toxins, then your cells can gradually release the toxins in them. If your RA is caused or is partially caused by toxins, then this gradual elimination of the toxins will wind down the rheumatoid arthritis.
If your liver is not handling toxins well, then toxins released by cells will stay in your body, irritating it, causing pain and dysfunction -- and rheumatoid arthritis can continue.
Liver dysfunction can be a major cause of rheumatoid arthritis. It is always involved one way or the other as a buildup of toxins in the body is always found in any autoimmune condition.
I’m going to list some products that can be of help. They are listed in order of importance, so if you can’t get all of them, start at the top and work down.
The number before the product name is the number of bottles to use in a month. Many of these are covered on the cancer site, but some aren’t. Take monthly for 6 months approximately.
2 bottles per month Optimal Immune 2 for about 8 months then, 1 bottle per month thereafter.
This 8 ounce bottle of emulsified oils and other ingredients. A powerful immune system modulator.
Rheumatoid arthritis is not a disease you want to try to knock out quickly. It is easy to overload your body, especially your liver, with too many toxins and too many dead pathogens. This overload could make you feel worse.
You instead need to regain a balance back in your liver and brain. Optimal Immune 1 & 2 addresses the regeneration of the Immune System through the liver and brain first.
The liver and brain are the first and foremost systems required for optimal immune vitality.
Without these two centers in a healthy state, your immune system has a hard time and your body is weakened.
Black Cumin Seed Oil a power immune system strengthener. It and all the other emulsified oils carry other immune enhancing components into cells as they create a liposomal delivery system.
Cordyceps and Colorius medicinal mushrooms are an equally powerful immune enhancing duo. Well known Ashwagandha and Turmeric also boost immune system response and the specially processed Structured Water used in it has a 25 year history of improving immune response.
The most valuable brain support nutrients in this Combo are Phosphatidylcholin, Phosphatidylserine and ProCoQ10. The group of Chia Seed oil, Pumpkin Seed oil, Evening Primrose oil and Lecithin supply the right ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3 oils to the brain. Equally valuable as these oils are the liquid Chlorophyll and Structured Water as they help get more oxygen into brain cells. Ashwagandha, Green Tea extract and Turmeric help clear pathways in the brain and reduce brain inflammation.
The liver is also supported significantly in Optimal Immune 2. Liquid Chlorophyll and the Structured Water are powerful liver detoxifiers. They grab hold of toxins and carry them out to be eliminated by the kidneys.
Structured Water, Green Tea Extract, Turmeric and ProCoQ10 remove free radicals from the liver which improves the liver's ability to detoxify. And Ashwagandha, Green Tea Extract and Turmeric clear pathways in the liver as they do the brain.
Evening Primrose oil enhances hormonal function. A strong hormonal system makes for a strong immune system, so this benefit, while small in the whole context of Optimal Immune 2, is significant.

1 bottle per month Silver 9.0 Plus Our strongest pathogen killer. Usually a chronic bacteria or mycoplasma infection is the underlying cause of RA.
2 bottle per month CandXpel This tells the body to carry candida, and all other pathogens out of the body. A powerful and unique way to deal with pathogens.
2 bottle per month metOH This OH water concentrate is highly anti-inflammatory, removes acids from the body, will help significantly with pain.
1 bottle per month Immune Cell Enhancement elixir This elixir greatly improves the ability of the immune system to kill pathogens and other unwanted cells.
1 bottle per month Quzu elixir to be used along with listening to the Sound Therapies Technology Recording
Quzu is a frequency enhanced water elixir that has been significantly upgraded. It tells the body to take 4 main actions. 1. To explode endorphin production so that the brain can better control the immune system. 2. To increase glutathione and other antioxidant production. 3. To increase cellular life force vibrations per minute which promotes overall health. 4. To mobilize your stem cells to fight pathogens.
Quzu is particularly power for getting the brain to control the immune system when used with the Sound Therapies Technology Recording. This recording, which is over a decade in developing, uses unmatched technology to create a special pure sound that activates the frontal lobes of the brain. One of its actions is to amplify the production of endorphins, which in conjunction with Quzu, is very powerful for improving immune system performance. Also helps to reduce stress, and more.

2 bottles per month UltraLiver12 A powerful liver support supplement extremely high in antioxidant protection.
1 bottle per month SOD Production Boost elixir This elixir tells your cells to make SOD and Catalase, the two most important antioxidant enzymes in the body.
1 bottle per month Pineal Gland elixir This elixir improves the function of the pineal gland so more melatonin is produced, among other things, and this improves immune system function, sleep, and more. Much more powerful than just taking melatonin.
2 bottles per month Nymsar elixir This elixirs modulates the immune system, and supports the kidneys and liver.
3 Main Actions These Products Use To Heal Rheumatoid Arthritis
First - Most of the time chronic viral, mycoplasma, or prion infections that persist in your body turn on the autoimmune response that leads to rheumatoid arthritis.
These products increase the ability of your immune system to eliminate these chronic infections. The liver works better so that the brain functions optimally which enables it to better assist the immune system.
Circulation pathways into cells are opened so that immune boosting nutrients can deal with whatever pathogens are hiding out in the body -- initiating the autoimmune attack on your cells.
Once those pathogens are eliminated, your body will no longer have a need to attack your cells in a failed attempt to eliminate them.
Once the overload of toxins are reduced, your body will have eliminated the major roadblocks to healing RA.
Second - With the focus on repairing and regenerating the liver, this group of products beginning with Optimal Immune 2, initiates the fundamental actions needed to detoxify your body. Your liver is the major detoxification organ in your body.
In addition, as the nutrients in it clear congestion and pathways, cells will naturally be better able to eliminate toxins.
Third - Reduces inflammation by modulating the immune system, calming it by
turning down the over-responding TH-2 side of the immune system that causes the inflammatory attack on your cells -- while at the same time boosting the TH-1 immune system cells that are the cells that attack and kill pathogens like viruses and mycoplasma.
Take care of these and you will gradually heal rheumatoid arthritis and start to live a healthy life again.
