What is it?
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition which attacks the joints. It is a relatively modern disease, resulting mainly from modern lifestyle, pollutants and dietary habits. In common with many modern diseases, its features are absent in skeletons dated prior to the 17th century. The medical profession says it can’t identify the exact cause, but it is associated with accumulation of acidic residues in the body and has been connected with high protein levels, viral infections, injuries, smoking and obesity.
How to treat it?
Make sure you are getting the right nutrients into your body, including clean water, sunlight, oxygen from exercise, and diet, plus any essential vitamins and minerals you may be lacking, in supplement form. Avoid pollutants from alcohol, caffeine, smoking, etc. and check your ideal weight.
Check out all the exercise and nutrition resources on the site (including free stuff) plus the formula of SSMDS supplements below, specifically designed to assist with the relief of this condition as part of Skip’s 10 Commandments 4 Health.
