What Causes Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)?

Research Identifies Gluten As A Cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis

What causes Rheumatoid Arthritis? Recent studies indicate that toxins in common foods can cause rheumatoid arthritis.

You may have been told rheumatoid arthritis is 'incurable'. But when you begin to understand that it is a form of poisoning - your thinking may shift.

Further - the research shows that identifying and removing those foods improves arthritis ... and in some cases healing can begin.


How common is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Most arthritis occurs as Osteoarthritis - but Rheumatoid arthritis is widely suffered too. They are both characterised as 'inflammatory diseases'. That is - there is serious inflammation at work deep in the tissues of the bone joints, tendons and cartilage of the body.

How common is arthritis?

  • Around 15% - or approximately 54 million Americans had some form of arthritis in 2015 . This is a 35% increase since 1995.
  • By the year 2040, this number will have increased to 25% or 78 million people in the US alone


Women affected more than men

According to one paper published in 2007 - arthritis imposes a higher disease burden on women than men:

"Arthritis continues to burden the U.S. population as the leading cause of physical disability and affects women disproportionately: women with arthritis report greater prevalence of activity and work limitations, psychological distress, and severe joint pain than their male counterparts.'


What causes Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is continuous inflammation in the joints - inflaming and swelling cartilage and tendon tissue. But what causes that inflammation?

Food toxins now linked causatively to rheumatoid arthritis

DigestSystemCropAccumulating research evidence points to 'foreifgn' entities often from milk or plant proteins - food toxins. The action of food toxins is to damamge the body. When we are unable to process certain food proteins (previously known as food intolerance) - the small intestine gets damaged. 

The small intestine is a vital part of your body - because it is your last protection from toxic bacteria, viruses etc. and the outside world. The small intestine is a filter - and a sponge.

It filters out the bad stuff for elimination from the body. . . . and it absorbs the goodies into our bloodstream to nourish us: filter and absorb.

But some foreign nasties actually tear holes in the small intestine. You may have heard of Leaky Gut Syndrome. The lining of the intestine is perforated, holes appear - it becomes 'leaky'.

Suddenly there are millions of 'foreign' things in your bloodstream.

And the body's First Response is always inflammation:

  • Inflammation in the skin results in eczema and psoriasis
  • Inflammation in the respiratory system leads to asthma and respiratory infection
  • Inflammation in the joints leads to rheumatoid arthritis

'I've been in the habit of reading up on health issues trying to figure this out for a long time.  I discovered the Healing Program on the internet . . .

(After trying the diet) ... my arthritis completely disappeared within about two days. My head has been clear every day and my emotional wellbeing has become a non-issue.  One day while driving in the car I caught a glance of my eyes in the rear view mirror and realized the dark circles were gone.  My eye sockets have completely changed color and don't look sunken anymore.

I decided my 13 year old daughter had a problem also. She tested it last Friday and broke out into hives on her face, had muscle spasms, and ached all over her spine and rib cage.

I can't thank you enough for ending the mystery of my health problems, but also for contributing to helping my daughter avoid a difficult life.  I'm so happy that my daughter is going to be able to avoid so simply her health problems.  I can tell she feels good now.

Thanks a lot. Monica S.'



What is the treatment for Rheumatoid arthritis?

Temporary relief treatment: You can take daily medications or supplements from your doctor for a few hours relief. Some people choose to take continuous anti-inflammatory medicines for life. But many find there are difficult side-effects.

Permanent relief treatment: Go to the source of the problem - the actual cause of your rheumatoid arthritis (food toxins) and learn to avoid those foods. You'll begin feeling the effect within a few days. Your amazing human body begins healing itself as soon as you remove the cause of the inflammation .... makes sense?


The Institute’s eighteen years of helping clients has shown - the most effective approach is to move to a LOW-TOXIN DIET.

We have found the best results come by using a journal – and with moderation … that is a diet which allows some favourites while greatly reducing the level of toxins in the blood . . Find out more at foodintol® LoTox Living

'Would you please publish my story. I took anti-inflamatories for nine years for stiff arthritic joints and back pain. According to my doctor I had to do it for life. But what with the side effects of strange moods and depresion I decided to look on the internet for answers and food allergy came up.



The upshot is I used the program and got some answers. At first I was a real skeptic but now I am a believer. . . . Getting on top of it all was a struggle at first but now I am a new person and guess what? No more anti-inflamatories. I am my old self again - the one my husband remembers!


Deborah please ask your readers whether they really need all those anti-inflamatories or if it's better to find the cause of the inflammation and just remove it. Phyllis B. WA'



Why did I get Rheumatoid Arthritis?

The individual immune response to food toxins which causes Rheumatoid Arthritis is genetic . . . it's in your genes. You got it from your parents, grandparents and other ancestors. And if you have children - you will already have passed on that same genetic material to your sons and daughters.

Doesn't this make it imperative to investigate further? Understanding the full effects of food intolerance gives you the power to choose great health for your whole family.
