A Holistic Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis That Works?
HLA B27 and Ankylosing Spondylitis
Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS) is pronounced “ANK-ki-low-sing spon-di-LIE-tis” and is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects primarily the sacroiliac joints (where the bottom area of the spine attaches to the pelvis), spine, and hip joints. Ankylosing is a term meaning stiff or rigid and Spondylitis means inflammation of the spine. It is a form of autoimmune inflammatory arthritis that typically appears slowly and gradually.
The cause of AS is not currently known to modern medicine It is most common in men, particularly young adults, and less common among women. It appears to be an inherited condition as about 96 percent of the people who have AS carry the HLA-B27 gene. Not everyone with that gene expression will develop Ankylosis Spondylitis, but there is a higher propensity to be a likely candidate and even pass it on to their children. The condition is slow to show and slow to progress, but it can fuse your vertebrae together if it does get really advanced.
Ankylosing Spondylitis Symptoms
- Lower-back pain that is commonly worse at night, in the morning, or after periods of inactivity
- Limited range of motion and lower back stiffness
- Stiffness and pain in the hips
- Limited expansion of the chest
- Limited Range of motion, most specifically in the hips and spine
- Joint swelling and pain in the knees, ankles and shoulders
- Neck Pain, elbow and heel pain
- Chronic fatigue or general weakness
- Loss of appetite or weight loss
- Eye inflammation (less common)
If you have any combination of these symptoms, it may be a good idea to see your doctor and get a proper diagnosis. Once you find out for sure, you can begin your treatment program and be on the road to complete recovery. The sooner you find out, the sooner you can get better, and the less the AS can progress.
Removing The Cause of AS Symptoms
There are three things you must address to remove the imprint of AS from your body. The first thing you want to do is to remove any pathogens, viruses, bacteria, heavy metals and environmental toxins from your body that may be the source of arthritic joints. That is particularly the case for AS! Most traditional treatments ignore this! And that’s why their patients never heal, they just keep coming back for more ineffective treatments and harmful medications and invasive surgeries. Holistic AS Treatments address this and removes the “Cause” of the disease, as well as the symptoms.
Chinese Traditional Medicine has discovered a way to alleviate the pain and circulation issues associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis. It is based on thousands of years of keeping the energy flowing in the way it should. They focus on health and longevity rather than disease. Try using it as a supplemental therapy along with some of the natural remedies and it will help you gain greater control over the symptoms of AS.
Natural Remedies for Ankylosing Spondylitis
A key to experiencing a full recovery from Arthritis Spondylitis pain and inflammation begins with giving your body the nutrition and supplementation it needs to stop the immune attack on your joints, reduce the pain and inflammation and rebuild your joints from the inside out. There are three specific remedies that should be in your health cabinet specifically for this purpose.
The 3 Things You Must Do (Stop, Relieve and Rebuild)
- Zeolite – Stops Toxins and Pathogenic Causes of AS Symptoms (You may even get rid of other nagging conditions by using zeolite powder due to it’s natural viral and tumor disabling effect).
- Rhumatol – Relieves Inflammation associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis (This is a powerful yet gentle Homeopathic Medicine that works well with herbal and nutritional supplements).
- Provailen – Quenches Pain, Stops Your Joints From Attacking Themselves and Begins Resurfacing Your Joints (This remedy contains powerful immune system builders that stops the attack on your joints and then rebuilds new smooth cartilage and provides natural joint cushioning).
When you begin addressing the cause of your Ankylosing Spondylitis, you will not only get rid of the painful symptoms, but you gain mobility to do the things you really want to do in life. You can get your life back and start living a pain-free existence once again.
Holistic Ankylosing Spondylitis Treatment
AS can be successfully controlled and even reversed if the person is willing to modify their diet (particularly their intake of simple sugars and starchy carbohydrates) and make exercise a standard part of their daily routine. Anti-Inflammatory medications are usually prescribed by medical doctors, and may be necessary for short-term pain and inflammation relief, but they should not become the staple of your recovery program.
Chiropractic care can provide some help in movement and pain recovery, but to free yourself from AS you need to take a holistic approach. Holistic (meaning treating the whole person) therapies can help your body restore it’s natural healthy state and improve your life in every area. Another exciting area of holistic medicine that is showing promise for arthritis and other chronic conditions is Tapping Therapy.
What this does is activates the same energy pathways in the body as acupuncture (but without the pain or needles) and clears stuck or blocked energy. We all know that stagnant anything is not healthy. Air and Water need to be moving for it to be healthy for us. Our body is no different and stuck energy leads to parts of our body where that blockage is (with arthritis, the joints) get stiff, inflammed and painful.
When you get that energy moving again, the condition, many times will magically disappear. It’s not magic, but science that is showing that this is working for many people. I would recommend looking into this as a natural healing modailty for Ankylosing Spondylitis. To discover more about it, visit EFT Tapping Therapy.
