Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease affecting over 1.3 million Americans. Autoimmune disease occurs when your immune system—which generally fights invaders and infections—mistakenly attacks its own healthy tissue and organs instead.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) causes joint inflammation and pain, and commonly affects the hands, knees or ankles, and usually the same joint on both sides of the body. Occasionally, RA can cause symptoms in the heart, lungs, circulatory system or eyes. Although chronic, RA progresses over time and has periods of remission as well as increased activity, called “flares.”

WHO’S AT RISK?

  • More women than men get RA
  • RA usually develops between age 30 and 60
  • Having a family member with RA increases the odds of developing RA

SYMPTOMS

  • Joint pain, tenderness, or inflammation 
  • Morning stiffness 
  • More than one joint is affected
  • The same joints on both sides of the body are affected.
  • Dry eyes with sensitivity to light
  • Gum inflammation or irritation
  • Skin nodules, especially over bony areas
  • Shortness of breath due to inflammation
  • Low red blood cell count
  • Fatigue and possibly low-grade fever

TREATMENT
The Kellman Wellness Center is known worldwide for its deeper testing methods, which lead to significantly better outcomes. Our approach of healing the microbiome has been shown to be extremely effective, in conjunction with other medical therapies, in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. While other health facilities advise you to add a probiotic, we break it down into the exact formula that will work for you. Everybody is different and every microbiome requires its own specific bacteria, and it a specific ratio.

SOME OF OUR TREATMENT METHODS INCLUDE:

  • Restoration of the microbiome
  • Natural anti-inflammatory compounds
  • Targeted probiotics
  • Potent IV nutrient therapy
  • Homeopathic immunomodulators
  • Naltrexon, a medication which modulates the immune system and, in conjunction with certain natural compounds, helps to reverse autoimmunity

Getting an accurate diagnosis is the first step to treating this chronic autoimmune disease.
