My Mother is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis since last 21 years. She has tried many types of treatments, may it be homeopathic, alopathic or ayurvedic, everything but nothing works out. Both her handsre bent now and she works all time in that condition. Due to RA, she has got other diseases too like thyroid, diabetes and Dangerous skin problems.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder. In severe type disease, there is a relentless progress in the inflammatory process, which leads to joint deformities. Certain drugs do work in reducing pain and swelling etc. But the damage continues. There is really no permanent treatment or cure. Thanks.
