Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which your body attacks your joints, however it can also involve other organs such as the lung, heart, eye. Those living with RA have a higher risk of other conditions such as heart disease and osteoporosis. Kansas City Integrative Health uses a naturopathic approach to decrease the inflammation, immune system over-activation, and decrease risk for long-term complications.
How Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Be Treated Naturally?
A naturopathic approach involves determining the current state of health with a full medical history, labs and physical exam, but also to investigate and understand the underlying cause(s) of the condition. Rheumatoid arthritis has been associated with dietary triggers, nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, environmental toxins, mental emotional stress, and an imbalance of gut bacteria.
Every patient is unique and different, and we offer the expertise to investigate triggers to your autoimmune condition.
