Step away from pain with Dr. Steve Hines
When you are experiencing joint pain, your doctor may say you have rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis is considered to be an autoimmune disease of unknown origin. The chronic immune response causes a host of symptoms from swollen painful joints to pericarditis and inflammation of the lungs.
The treatments for RA are generally pharmacological agents such as non-steroidal inflammatory drugs, steroids (Dexamethasone, Prednisone), and other immune suppressive drugs that inhibit tumor necrosis factor (TNF-a for short).
Although the mainstream consensus is the cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, this is really not the case at all.
Historically any number of infectious bacteria have been known to induce RA symptoms. Mycoplasma, Lyme disease, Chlamydia, Pneumonii, Babesia and Beta Strep are just a few of the most common. Certain foods have also been known to induce RA symptoms.
As early as the 1960’s Thomas McPherson Brown M.D. published the results of his small clinical trial showing the effectiveness of antibiotic therapy for a number of arthritis using tetracycline antibiotic as the sole treatment. He also found he could successfully treat other rheumatic conditions such as Lupus, RA and Scleroderma.
In mid-November of 1997, the unprecedented successful treatment of arthritis by antibiotics was validated by Dr. James O’Dell M.D. in a presentation to the American College of Rheumatology at the ACR annual scientific meeting in Washington D.C. Dr. McPherson treated over 10,000 cases of arthritis during his career as a Rheumatologist. Dr. McPherson also served as the Dean of Medicine at George Washington University Medical School and the director of the Arthritis Institute of National Hospital.
With such success and credentials you would think every Rheumatologist would be treating their patients.
It is probably obvious to anyone looking at this problem with any degree of sanity that this is political.
The amount of money made by pharmaceutical companies selling drugs for Arthritis is bound to play in here somewhere. How else could one trade a cheap antibiotic treatment for an insanely expensive TNF-alpha inhibiter?
The TNF-alpha inhibiters as well as long term steroids for the treatment of RA are well known to increase the chances of being diagnosed with Cancer. There is a reason it is called TNF (tumor necrosis factor)-alpha, yes, it is a key part of the immune systems surveillance for cancer.
Most doctors will write you a prescription that will help you ‘live’ with rheumatoid arthritis.
