Rheumatism - Causes, Symptoms, Treatment, Remedies

Rheumatic fever has been known to doctors in ancient times, but in those years by the disease meant something quite different from now. Today called chronic rheumatism inflammatory-immune process, which covers the connective tissues, especially the heart and joints. Symptoms of the disease - specific granulomatous inflammation, characterized by malaise undulating course.

Causes of rheumatism :- The causes of rheumatism much, just because he's never there. The first and most important condition - the presence of a genetic predisposition. There is a second, no less important condition - it is the presence of β-hemolytic streptococcus group A. The virus causes not only a sore throat, but pharyngitis, scarlet fever, and chronic tonsillitis. In essence, if you have ever suffered from one of these diseases, you automatically get to the risk of developing rheumatic fever. However, this happens not always. Consider the basic mechanisms of streptococcus effects on the body.

Firstly, in the best case, the inflammation may go unnoticed.

Secondly, in the process of inflammation microbial enzymes can have a toxic effect on the connective tissue. In this case, if there is a genetic predisposition just may develop rheumatic fever.

Finally, the immune system can begin to respond to the antigen by streptococcus antibody. However, it is fraught with consequences, because of streptococcal protein similar to the protein of the heart muscle. As a result, antibodies begin to fight against cardiac tissue. This mechanism may also lead to the development of rheumatism, particularly if it is performed simultaneously with the previous scheme. Naturally, in order to there was rheumatic fever, need genetic predisposition.
Thus, we conclude. In essence, it is a consequence of rheumatic fever undertreated or improperly cured the streptococcal infection, that is, dates back to the early years (when we all get a sick sore throat, scarlet fever, and other similar illnesses).

Symptoms of various forms of rheumatism :- Several distinct forms of rheumatism, but note immediately that they are found mainly in the complex. We describe how manifests itself, each of these forms.

Heart formaotlichaetsya intoxication, fever, pain in the heart and heart failure. It leads to heart diseases.

The Articular form is similar in its manifestations, however, instead of heart pain a patient experiences pain in the large joints. They swell. As a result, the joints become deformed and can no longer perform their functions.

Inflammation of the brain vessels is also called the disease, chorea - a form of rheumatism, which is expressed in anxiety, problems with handwriting and general muscle weakness. The patient gets tired easily and becomes aggressive.

Skin format felt nodules on the skin.

Finally, pleural effusion is also one of the forms of rheumatism. When it appears chest pain, dry cough, fever.

rheumatism treatment methods of classical medicine :- So, suppose a patient has been diagnosed with "rheumatism." What measures will be taken, classical doctors? The most important - is the observance of the sick bed, depending on the degree of disease severity. It plays the role of medical and diet, which includes limiting the use of salt.

More recently, patients were administered a complex of prednisolone (in some cases, triamcinolone), gradually reducing the dose, doses which were a different consistency. However, in recent years, the effectiveness of this method has been questioned. The fact that studies have shown - in this case, a devastating effect on the stomach doubled, and in addition, prednisolone significantly reduces the concentration of acetylsalicylic acid in the blood, in other words, one drug interferes with the action of another. But before this complex was administered everywhere!

Now as the only means used for rheumatism prednisolone. Research in this area are carried out and to this day, perhaps after some time, it turns harmful or ineffective and this chemical agent too.

Besides the treatment of rheumatism proper measures are taken to deal with streptococcal infection, which was the cause of the disease.

As a result of the treatment of the disease process is reduced to reception of antibiotics, which are not only insufficiently studied, but, as it turned out to be harmful to the immune system and organs of the gastrointestinal tract. Homeopathy, in contrast to conventional medicine, is able to relieve the patient of the rheumatic disease once and for all without any disastrous consequences.
