Learning About Inflammatory Arthritis

Inflammatory arthritis is no day at the park, that is for sure. There are actually over one hundred different types of arthritis that a person could be diagnosed with, and this includes rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and psoriatic arthritis just to name a few. Now if you are ever diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis and even if you have not been, there is some important information that you should be aware of.

Arthritis technically refers to any painful inflammation of the joints, and arthritis conditions can range from being so mild that they are hardly noticeable to so severe that they are practically debilitating. Arthritis can feel as though it is taking over your life, especially when the pain gets really bad, but you should know that by learning more about the disease and what it brings along with it, you will get a much better grasp on the situation overall and get the best results out of your treatment.

The Disease

Inflammatory arthritis is a term that refers to those conditions of the joints that involve the immune system and inflammation. These are therefore the most serious and painful types of arthritis that a person can be diagnosed with and many forms of inflammatory arthritis are autoimmune disorders, in which the body views its own tissues as being foreign, and in turn reacts with inflammation.

This disease can also be caused by certain types of bacteria, and in the cause of gout or pseudgout for instnaace, the body is basically unable to rid itself due to an insufficient amount of these crystalline structures due to a metabolic defect that occurs with age.

In regards to the treatment of inflammatory arthritis, there are several different options that a person has available to them. Conventional medical treatments will help to relieve the pain that is associated with your arthritis, but bear in mind that as of today there are no cures for this condition.

What Causes Inflammatory Arthritis?

Inflammatory arthritis is usually the result of the body's immune system identifying one joint as an outsider/ invader (because some toxins get accumulated inside the joints) and turns the body defense system against it. This is how the joint becomes red, swells and starts paining acutely.

In order to deflect the attack on the joint, the joint has to identify itself sufficiently to the body's immune system, and also throw out the toxins which took shelter within its fold. The body can identify it once the toxins are dead. The next logical questions would be how to kill the toxins and how to detoxify the body. There are many ways to detoxify the body. In order to get the method that suits you best, you would need to consult with a doctor before launching into any type of diet or detoxification regime.

One very popular method (if the doctor permits it) is the juice or water fast, coupled with colon cleansing with the help of the colon irrigation method. This usually takes place from about 3 weeks to 3 months.

There are many diets that can be followed as well. However, it is very important that you have the doctor's supervision when you try anything as drastic as a juice or water diet. While the benefits from these processes are great, it is important that they are done properly and in a most disciplined manner. If mismanaged, the water and/or juice diet can imbalance the salt contents in the body, endangering your life.

Once the detoxification is successful, an ordinary antibiotics course would be prescribed to cure the inflammatory arthritis in no time. This is clearly a matter of "Its easy when you know how!". Once the toxins have been removed, the body ceases to see the joint as the enemy and finishes its attack on it. The antibiotics ensure that there is no residue bacteria left inside the body.
