What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that involves continuous inflammation of the soft parts of one or more joints. The inflammation destroys the articular cartilage and progressively reduces the mobility of the affected joint. In rheumatological treatments, medical action is very important at the time of diagnosis.
Its risk, depending on how developed it is, can become very serious, immobilizing the affected joint completely. In some cases, arthritis can spread to the rest of the joints, making it impossible to lead a normal life.
What are the causes of rheumatoid arthritis?
As in all autoimmune diseases, we can count on a genetic load that predisposes us to the disease, but it will be external factors that activate this load triggering it. These external factors can be generalized or localized infections produced by bacteria or viruses, aggravated in many cases by a chronic intestinal candidiasis. The sum of some extracellular environmental factors such as oxidative stress, intoxication by heavy metals, food intolerances, an acid pH in the tissues, can worsen the diagnosis. On the other hand, the disease might not really be rheumatoid arthritis, but that the symptoms hide a Lyme disease.
Do you think you may have rheumatoid arthritis?
If you have any of these symptoms and especially if they persist for more than two weeks or for a longer period of time, it is important that you consult a doctor: pain, heat in one or more joints, stiffness, inflammation of one or more joints or difficulty in moving a joint.
On many occasions, the true nature of a disease is Lyme Disease

Síntomas Artritis Reumatoide
Symptoms affecting joints
Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that can affect all joints, although it occurs especially in the small joints of the hands and feet. In most cases, rheumatoid arthritis affects the joints symmetrically (on both sides of the body at the same time and to the same extent). The main symptoms of joint rheumatoid arthritis are:
- Swelling, warmth, and redness
Additional or extra joint symptoms
Apart from problems affecting the joints, some people with rheumatoid arthritis experience a number of more general symptoms, such as:
- Tiredness and lack of energy
- Elevated temperature (fever)
- Digestive problems such as intestinal gas, abdominal swelling
- Weight loss
Diagnosis Rheumatoid Arthritis
Some patients diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis actually suffer from chronic Lyme disease.

What causes rheumatoid arthritis?
At Biosalud Day Hospital we carry out the necessary tests to look for the origin of rheumatoid arthritis, which in most cases is due to several causes: On the one hand, food intolerances, both temporary and genetic intolerances; alterations in chronic viral processes; often the most difficult rheumatoid arthritis to control with conventional treatments based on cortisone have their origin in fungal processes, where there is an infection by candida albicans at an intestinal level, which generates the alteration of the immune system, which along with other circumstances, will lead to arthritis. Heavy metal poisoning may also be among the causes. Once determined, we carry out a personalized treatment protocol, but there are never two equal treatments because the causes are not present in the same way in each patient.
Can rheumatoid arthritis be cured?
In Biosalud, we often manage to detect the real causes that have activated the disease, and as we can cure them, many of our patients have been completely asymptomatic for years. Other patients are misdiagnosed and what they really have is a chronic Lyme, which treatment is completely different, as it is a multi-infectious disease.
How can Rheumatoid Arthritis be prevented?
All autoimmune diseases have the same prevention pattern. All depend on an inevitable genetic load and external factors that activate this genetic load which are avoidable. Avoid the accumulation of heavy metals, toxic chemicals, eat a diet poor in refined foods and white flours, sugar or industrial products, and rich in vegetables and high-quality proteins. Keep the pH balanced and do not suffer oxidative stress. In one word, follow our Premium Prevent Program Biosalud Day Hospital Club.
