Common steroid injections used to treat arthritis may actually make the crippling condition worse, a study suggests.
Arthritis is a common connective tissue disease which causes inflammation of the bones, joints, and tendons. Chronic arthritis can lead to arthrosis, a degradation of cartilage in the joints. The cartilage can lose its elasticity, become rough and lose mass. This can result in deformation of the cartilage. Both arthritis and arthrosis are very painful diseases for which orthodox medicine has no cure.
In contrast to the dangers of steroids used in the orthodox treatment of arthritis, Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine approach opens up the possibility of preventing and treating the condition naturally through the use of safe micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
In a pilot study conducted by researchers at the Dr. Rath Research Institute, 10 arthritis/arthrosis patients aged between 45 and 84 years old took a specific combination of micronutrients daily for a period of six months. At the end of the study, blood analysis of the patients showed a significant reduction in inflammation. X-ray examinations indicated a visible improvement in 50 percent of patients.
