Yet, we have some good news! Apparently, a Chinese natural remedy may offer the help you need!
Since the billion- dollar pharmaceutical industry profits from our illnesses, and has immense political power, it is not always driven by the best intentions, when it comes to healing our issues. Apparently, it is all about generating issues after all. Apart from being great in making money, big pharmacy is incredible in controlling the treatments and healthcare patients receive.
On the other hand, old and alternative natural treatments are continuously proved to be as effective as the most expensive conventional ones. Therefore, it may be better to rely on the natural medicine and find a healthy solution to your problem, and avoid the harmful side- effects of medications at the same time.
Chinese has used Tripterygium wilfordii Hook F (TwHF), also known as thunder god vine, for centuries, in order to alleviate joint point and treat inflammation. The same remedy wil provide amazing results in the case of rheumatoid arthritis.
The Annals of Rheumatoid Arthritis is a medical journal which is internationally recognized for its effective work in the case of arthritis. It published a study which found that TwHF is equally effective as the medication methotrexate, which is commonly used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. About 1.5 million Americans suffer from this issue.
Research has found TwHF was found to be equally effective in treating the symptoms of active rheumatoid arthritis and boosted the effect when taken in conjunction with methotrexate. The research included 207 patients which were divided into three separate groups. One group took 12.5 mg of methotrexate once in the week, another took 20 mg of TwHF three times a day, and the last group was given a combination of the two.
The research lasted for 24 weeks, and its findings were fascinating! Namely, 46.5% experienced enormous improvements on methotrexate alone, 55% demonstrated enormous improvement on TwHF alone, and a gigantic 77% showed improvement due to the therapy with the combination of the two.
Supplemental treatments may help you in the case of various health conditions, and this study confirmed it again. At times, the best benefits are achieved by a combination of more treatments, for instance, natural treatments may complement the pharmaceutical treatment, and vice versa. Currently, TwHF is prescribed in China, but not in the U.S. for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and pain relief.
Yet, before you start using natural or herbal remedies, TwHF or any other new method in order to treat rheumatoid arthritis, it is advisable to consult your doctor.
