An analysis of global research shows that children with juvenile idiopathic arthritis, the form of the condition most often found in young people, have abnormally low blood levels of vitamin D.
While the focus of this particular study is vitamin D, we should not mistakenly assume that deficiencies of other micronutrients are rare in either adults or children. To the contrary, and as Dr. Rath’s groundbreaking Cellular Medicine concept explains, deficiencies of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other essential micronutrients are not only commonplace in the general population, they are the primary cause of today’s most common chronic diseases. Based on pioneering work conducted at the Dr. Rath Research Institute, this understanding has given rise to the revolutionary discovery that specific combinations of micronutrients can be used for the prevention and control of diseases.
To learn how Dr. Rath’s research has shown that specific micronutrient combinations can be helpful in painful joint conditions, read this article on our website.
