What is Rheumatoid
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory
autoimmune disease. The body’s immune system normally attacks and destroys harmful
foreign substances, such as bacteria and viruses. With an autoimmune disease,
the immune system becomes confused and attacks our own body. In the case of RA,
it attacks the lining of the joints, causing inflammation, pain, and eventually
damage and deformity of the joints. It usually affects both sides of the body
equally, and is prone to exhibiting active phases with periods of remission in
between. Some of the body’s organ systems may also be affected, such as the heart,
lungs, eyes, or skin. Although the cause is unclear, it is most likely a
combination of genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors.
Rheumatoid arthritis is different from other forms of
arthritis, such as osteoarthritis or gout. RA is the only type that is caused
by a dysfunction of the immune system.

the body’s vital energy), and reduce swelling. It nourishes the body’s vital
essence at a deep level, and also harmonizes the immune system, an important
consideration with any autoimmune disease. It is designed to control the
