Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is described as a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs, but principally attacks flexible (synovial) joints" The treatment invariably involves the use of Steroids plus Immune Modulating (suppressing) Drugs.

However Hench who received the nobel prize for the discovery and application of cortisone to rheumatoid arthritis, (perhaps falsely labelled as an auto immune disease), was visited by the British Rheumatologist Dr Oswald Savage in 1950. He found Hench ‘depressed by the increasingly numerous reports of side effects… My generation will never forget the severe complications they produced – the moon face, the perforated and bleeding ulcers, the bruising and crushed vetetabrae’
The answer fortunately is much simpler.
