1. It starts in the intestines
2. It is caused by an imbalance not from your immune system attacking itself.
3. The imbalance is caused by:
c. lack of fauna and flora
d. gut permeability(leaky gut syndrome)
Bacteria- minocycline 100 mg x 2 a day
fungus- Boron (comes in 3mg capsule) 21mg-30mg a day until symptoms subside. Then 3 to 9 mg.
lack of fauna and flora- soil organisim pro-biotics x2 a day
gut permeability- damage caused by candida albicans or other bacterial overgrowth-cut out night shade family and stressor foods. Supplement 1-2 grams powdered ascorbic acid (vitamin C) per day, 1 capsule of modified citrus pectin (reason xango mangosteen juice is good) with every meal. One capsule of plain ginger (no additives) with every meal.
Reishi Mushroom- known immune system modulator follow bottle instructions.
in addition a multi mineral supplement Not containing-magnesium stearate, stearic acid, vegetable or palm stearate. These all create a bio-film in your gut that prevents you from absorbing nutrients you need to cure disease. Try not to eat late in the evening before bed time so your bowels have a chance to rest each night.
I had RA- My numbers were off the scale. This is what I did instead of taking methotrexonate or one of the other toxic drugs which make gut permeability worse. My symptoms are all in remission. I still maintain a diet free of stressor foods and nightshade family foods.
If You are willing to make a superhuman effort to stick to a strict diet free of nightshade and stressor foods, make sure all your foods are either grass fed beef or other organic substances and you follow the advice above it worked for me.
Note* I didn't know which one I had, so I attacked them all.(and won) it took about 2 months. There is no quick and easy cure.
Once my symptoms were in remission I backed off the minocycline to 100mg x 1 per day on Mon-Wed-Friday only.
