Arthritis

 

Condition description:

Painful, swollen, or stiff joints caused by underlying condition of degeneration or inflammation.  There are two primary types of arthritis: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.  Osteoarthritis is caused wear and tear of old age, overused, or injury.  Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune inflammatory condition in which one's own antibodies attack the joints and initiating bone deterioration.

Underlying causes:

Although osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis are two distinct diseases, some underlying causes predisposing factors and treatment modalities apply to both conditions.  By identifying and the treating these causes and related disorders, joint inflammation can be limited or halted.

Common symptoms:

Consists of joint pain, swelling, inflammation, stiffness especially morning stiffness of joints.  Any joint can be involved including small joints of hands and feet or large joints like shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankles.

Conventional treatment:

Consists of medication like analgesics to reduce pain such as Tylenol and others, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, naproxen, sodium, and Aleve).  Some types of NSAIDs only available by prescriptions.  Oral NSAIDs can cause stomach irritation and some may increase the risk of heart attacks or stroke.  NSAIDs are also available as creams or gels, which can be rubbed on joints. Disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDS) can be used to treat rheumatoid arthritis.  Other medicines include corticosteroids in the form of prednisone and related medicines and biologic response modifiers.  These are typically used in conjunction like DMARDS an example included Etanercept (Enbrel) and infliximab (Remicade).

EHC approach:

Treat the underlying causes, which may include food sensitivity, chemical sensitivity, mineral deficiencies like magnesium deficiency and zinc deficiency.  Essential fatty acids deficiency, which can be treated with fish oil.  Treating the causes minimize the need for conventional treatment of various medicines.  If yeast overgrowth is present, it should be treated.

Story:

After being treated for the above problems for two months, I feel 100% better. It was good to have a doctor listen to m and help find what was wrong and not tell me it was just my age. In addition to the above, I had pains in legs and neck which I thought was arthritis. But Dr. Sultan found a magnesium deficiency and corrected that also.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

As compared to the last case symptoms are different but causes are the same- low thyroid and magnesium deficiency. You will repeatedly see the same theme as far as causes are concerned. However, manifestations can be quite different. One has to be diligent in recognizing many faces of low thyroid, magnesium deficiency and other causes of chronic illness.

Story:

When I came to the Allergy Treatment Center, I could hardly function as a career person, mother, or wife.
I had been to 5 doctors last year and I'd feel better for a while then right back to the same thing. When I would return to the doctor, they would look puzzled. This was very frightening. I read a story in a magazine of a woman with the same story and I called the editor and got a phone number for the American Treatment Society in Colorado Springs and they referred me to Dr. Sultan.
After 2 months I feel alive and myself again and the people I work with and my family have all noticed. Thanks for a quality life again.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

Unfortunately, we see lots of patients at the end of the road and seeking our help as the last resort. Through these stories I want to educate that you do not have to be deathly ill to seek the help that is needed. It means be aware and treat the underlying causes before they become debilitating. That is why I educate my patients that you should look in your family, friends and people you care about the most and see who are sick and who are taking medications. Teach them that medications cannot fix the problem and introduce them to the concept of treating the cause and treat it early. This is the roadmap for your recovery and decades of good health without medications.

Story:

Thanks to Dr. Sultan and his treatment plan, I am feeling so much better. The five doctors before him had no clue that my skin outbreaks with blisters, swollen hands, fingers, feet and toes all were related to food allergies. I have so much energy now that I ride bikes with my son and we also ride 4-wheelers in the woods on the trails. I had no idea that I could do all of this and still have energy left. My health is 99% better and the only reason it's not 100" is because I love the food I'm not supposed to have.
I thank Dr. Sultan and my clients thank him too. I am a massage therapist and at one time I couldn't work for 2 months. Thank you again. PS.: I've lost 49 lbsJJ and my blood pressure is great!

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

While there are hopeless people, there are no hopeless cases. Even auto-immune conditions like Rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus will respond to treating the cause
