In this post I will list articles you can refer to about Rheumatoid Arthritis.  If you understand the Seven Steps to Healing, you can join me in astonishment of how the medical experts are spinning their wheels trying to identify cause, when the cause is so simple and straight forward. Watch, as time progresses, and they gradually uncover the truth. But meanwhile, people are sick, getting addicted to drugs, spending billions of dollars on medications that do nothing but continue the problem.  And people like Ms. Cheek are turned into felons for teaching the truth.

  1. The Genetics of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Risk and Protection in Different Stages of the Evolution of RA

This article is very scientific. But most of it is mumbo jumbo that is unnecessary in understanding the concept behind immune system disorders. For an understanding of what causes immune system disorders, go to the page on fibromyalgia. It is the same for all autoimmune disorders.

The point of interest in this article is the part genetics plays in disease development. The homeopathic/holographic concept is that we inherit the environmental experiences of our ancestors.  That is one way our miasm is determined. It is also involved in the determination of our constitutional type.  See the page on homeopathy if you do not understand those terms.

This article give credence to what I am trying to teach. Also, it brings out a very important, NEW concept—that of epimeres. Epimeres are changes in the genetic code that are created through environmental exposure, and then passed on to offspring.  This is very important, especially in the creation of the propensity toward drug abuse. It can even be a cause of our society’s dependence on pills per se.

Here is a quote from the article that supports what we are teaching:

However, the identification of environmental risk factors presents an interesting challenge, as prevention strategies based on avoidance of exposure to risk would be attractive. The possibility that RA starts outside the joints raises many questions about the role of environmental factors. Could an environmental influence be responsible for the initiation of autoimmunity? Or could an environmental factor be the trigger to drive the transition to clinical disease? It is likely to be the environmental contribution to disease that interacts with a susceptible individual’s genetic component to alter disease course and progression. Understanding the influence of the environment may help us to understand the initial phases of disease and how these can be altered.
