Rheumatoid Arthritis

 Rheumatoid Arthritis and Scope in Homoeopathy

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints. This condition can also affect the tissues surrounding the joints (muscles, tendons, ligaments) as well as other organs of the body (skin, blood vessels, heart, lungs and muscles).RA is a chronic condition and it tends to last for many years though there are periods in between when the patient is without any symptom. RA is a progressive condition and over a period of time, it causes joint destruction and functional disability.

Scientists largely believe that the tendency to develop rheumatoid arthritis may be genetically inherited. It is also suspected that certain infections or factors in the environment might trigger the immune system to attack the body’s own tissues (Autoimmune response), resulting in inflammation. In any case, the autoimmune response causes chronic inflammation of the joints, that later progresses to joint destruction. Stress can act a predisposing factor as well as a trigger to induce acute episodes of the condition.The disease is three times more common in women as compared to men. It afflicts people of all races equally. The disease can begin at any age, but peak incidence is seen between 40 to 60 years of age.

The course of RA varies from patient to patient. There are stages when the disease is active and this is called a ‘Flare-up’. In between the flare-ups are episodes when the patient is absolutely free from symptoms, such periods are called ‘Remissions’
• Common symptoms during the active stage of RA are as follows:
• Joint swelling, redness and tenderness
• Joint stiffness
• Limited range of motion of joints
• Deformities of hands and feet (at later stages)
• Muscular pains
• Fever
• Loss of appetite
• Usually multiple joints are affected at one time (polyarthritis)
• Symmetrical affection of joints is common
• Small joints of hands and feet; elbows, ankles are commonly involved
• Skin redness or inflammation
• Round, painless nodules under the skin
• Inflammation of the lung (pleurisy)
• Swollen glands
• Anemia
Diagnosis of RA:
Following are the common tests done to diagnose RA:
• RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis) factor
• X-ray of the joint
• ESR (Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate)
• C-Reactive proteins (CRP)
• CBC (Complete blood count)

Type II Diabetes is a constitutional disorder as it is an offshoot of constitutional defects (genetic factors, altered immunity) having an impact on the entire constitution of an individual. Hence it calls for an in-depth constitutional approach for its management.Homeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Moreover homeopathy recognizes importance of the underlying causes such as genetic and inherited factors as the root of any ailment of the body. Homeopathic medicines prescribed on such criteria plays a crucial role in management of many deep-rooted, chronic, difficult diseases; one amongst them being Diabetes.When we talk about diseases like diabetes, we talk in terms of management rather than cure. Homeopathic treatment can will prevent the progess and the complications associated with this condition. Moreover timely administered homeopathic medicines help in maintaining the levels of exogenous insulin and hypoglycemic drugs at minimum possible dosage and in preventing the further progress of the disease. The role of a healthy diet and exercise cannot be underestimated along with all the above treatment measures.
