Arthritis is an auto-immune disease that causes inflammation of the joints. This inflammation is chronic in nature and does not subside on its own. It causes destruction of the joint tissue. Rheumatoid Arthritis causes pain, swelling, stiffness and deformities in the joints. Homeopathic medicines have been found to be very helpful in the treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Since Homeopathy essentially works on the principle of correcting and strengthening the body’s immunity, it is at a big advantage when it comes to the treatment of this trouble as it is primarily due to the malfunctioning of the immunity of the body. Therefore, Homeopathic medicines are able to get the whole process moving in the right direction by correcting the deranged immunity of the patient. Once the acute phase of the disease has been dealt with, the homeopathic treatment has to focus on preventing any further flare up. For this, one may require a constitutional Homeopathic remedy, which can effectively cure the patient once and for all.
