Stiff, swollen joints…starting from the fingers and toes and eventually spreading to the
rest of your body…sound familiar?
Does the thought of even typing out your symptoms, searching for relief, fill you with
dread? Do you start off your day with joint pain?
You’re not alone!
Rheumatoid Arthritis affects a growing number of patients in the US and worldwide, especially
those aged 40 and above.
What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune condition, meaning your immune system has begun
attacking your body’s tissues and causing painful inflammation and eventual tissue degradation
Rheumatoid Arthritis isn’t restricted to just your joints—as the disease progresses, it can
even affect your eyes, lungs, heart, and more.
While there are many factors that may contribute to Rheumatoid Arthritis, including
genetics, weight, smoking, sex, and age, new research has pointed to another cause: bacteria!
Bacterial DNA coming from the mouth, gut, or urinary tract has been found in direct correlation
to the inflammation behind Rheumatoid Arthritis.
How Do We Treat Rheumatoid Arthritis?
While many traditional treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis may provide some relief
from your symptoms, they do little to address the root cause of your condition.
That’s where Gates Way to Health is different.
Rather than spot-treating the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis, we begin treatment by
first finding the root cause of your condition. We do this through a series of personalized
diagnostic testing to determine what is causing the inflammation in your body; be it stray
bacteria, stress hormones, or genetic factors.
By treating your condition from the roots up, we can focus more on your whole-body wellness.
Oftentimes, the root cause of a condition is a far cry from what traditional testing may have
At Gates Way to Health, we pride ourselves on our ability to find the answers that
others have overlooked and treat the conditions that others have deemed untreatable.
If you or a loved one are affected by Rheumatoid Arthritis and are seeking alternative
treatment, give us a call at 833.DR.GATES to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Gates and
start feeling better, today!
