Rheumatoid Arthritis

In an effort to understand the reasons behind people of any age, including children, being struck down with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and other connective tissue diseases, we have delved and found some valuable and exciting conventional medical research.

The book ‘The New Arthritis Breakthrough’ chronicles some 50 years of research and successful treatment of over 10,000 patients by the eminent US doctor Thomas McPherson Brown. It cites clinical trials that have repeatedly shown the link between bacteria and the inflammatory process that causes RA and other connective tissue diseases. Trial results show how these debilitating conditions are responsive to low dose antibiotic therapy. Patient reports in the book tell how antibiotic therapy has allowed them to discontinue cortisone, anti inflammatories and immuno-suppressant medications and regain a normal life after years of pain, debility, surgery, unemployment and untold difficulty.

In addition to results that are thought impossible for rheumatoid arthritis, ‘Tom Brown’ as he was affectionately known, also describes how he has successfully treated Systemic Lupus, (SLE) fibromyalgia, scleroderma and other connective tissue diseases, that has saved and retrieved many people’s lives.

Despite these compelling results, most patients with these diseases who visit a specialist will receive the standard cortisone, anti inflammatories, methotrexate and gold treatment, all which come with a level of toxicity and severe side effects, and none of which offer any reversal of their condition. Sadly, the practice of antibiotic therapy lags far behind this evidence.

The New Arthritis Breakthrough by Henry Scammell 1998, M. Evans Hardback 330 pages is available from The Road Back Foundation’s website.

This highly readable book is accessible and informative for anyone, be they a practitioner or sufferer.

Grateful patients who have benefited from antibiotic therapy initiated a nonprofit organization, The Road Back Foundation http://www.roadback.org/ which provides information, treatment protocols for patients to show their own doctors and a list of doctors around the world who use this treatment, some of whom work with natural therapists.

Gaining the understanding that connective tissue diseases are often generated by certain organisms gives specific guidelines for the natural treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia and psoriatic arthritis.  Patients remain on their medication(s) during treatment. Contact the clinic if you would like to look into natural approaches.
