What Is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Approximately 1.3 million adults have Rheumatoid Arthritis, and women with the disease outnumber the men two to one.
RA can be summed up as joint destruction resulting as the immune system attacks the joint tissues. Inflammation known as synovitis, is caused by white blood cells flooding the joint lining known as synovium. This leads to chronic inflammation of RA as the normally thin synovium and the joints become swollen painful and puffed up. Painful swelling, warmth and redness are just some of the symptoms.
Early diagnosis and treatment are very important because damage to bones during the first two years a person has the disease, are now being indicated by researchers’. The cartilage and bone within the joint, deteriorate as the inflamed synovium goes to work on it, causing severe pain.
It does this by producing antibodies against the body’s tissue. This is called autoimmunity.
When the disease affects many organs, as in lupus, it’s called a systemic autoimmune disease. If it affects a single organ or type of tissue, such as in type 1 diabetes, it’s known as a localized autoimmune disease. Different autoimmune diseases often cluster in families and may affect almost any organ in the body. When they do, they may cause abnormal growth or changes in function.
There are some similarities to allergies in the way the body reacts negatively with an autoimmune disease. The difference is that with allergies, the body’s overreaction and response is to external factors such as dust or dander. With an autoimmune disease, the body is responding to itself.
Immune Deficiency Disorders ?
The immune system stores just a few of each kind of the different cells needed to recognize millions of possible enemies that may invade our body. When an antigen first appears, the small quantity of immune cells that can respond to it multiply into a full-scale army of cells. After their job is done, the immune cells fade away, leaving sentries behind to watch for future attacks.
Researchers have now uncovered ways to activate stem cells that can be used to regenerate damaged immune responses in autoimmune diseases and in immune deficiency disorders, such as HIV infection.
Using a combination of natural protein, peptides and other growth factors from placenta extract they are suspended in a sterile solution and filtered down to enable the solution to be supplied by intramuscular injection. The proteins and peptides provides food for the bodies stem cells and re-activate the dormant stem cells, which turbo charges the Immune System back to optimum performance levels. Viruses such as HIV can then be fought off by the bodies own rejuvenated immune system.
