Rheumatoid Arthritis Causes arthritis.org
“The cause of RA is not yet fully understood, although doctors do know that an abnormal response of the immune system plays a leading role in the inflammation and joint damage that occurs. No one knows for sure why the immune system goes awry, but there is scientific evidence that genes, hormones and environmental factors are involved…”

“…Potential causes for arthritis may include:
Injury – leading to degenerative arthritis
Abnormal metabolism – leading to gout and pseudogout
Inheritance – such as in osteoarthritis
Infections – such as in the arthritis of Lyme disease
Immune system dysfunction – such as in RA and SLE.
Most types of arthritis are caused by a combination of many factors working together, although some arthritis conditions have no obvious cause and appear to be unpredictable in their emergence.
Some people may be more susceptible to..
Arthritis Causes, from emedicinehealth.com
“…The causes of arthritis depend on the form of arthritis. Causes include injury (leading to degenerative arthritis), abnormal metabolism (such as gout and pseudogout), inheritance (such as in osteoarthritis), infections (such as in the arthritis of Lyme disease), and an overactive immune system (such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus). Treatment programs, when possible, are often directed toward the precise cause of the arthritis…”
Once Is Enough: A Guide to Preventing Future Fractures bones.nih.gov
“..What is a bone mineral density test? Is it painful?
A bone mineral density (BMD) test is the best way to determine your bone health. This test can identify osteoporosis, determine your risk for fractures (broken bones), and measure your response to osteoporosis treatment. The most widely recognized BMD test is called a dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry, or DXA test. The test is safe and painless, a bit like having an x-ray, but with much less exposure to radiation. It can measure bone density at your hip and spine and takes only 15 minutes to complete. For a DXA test, you will be asked to lie on a table while a machine above you measures your bone density….”

“…Yet there are a few health habits you can change to reduce your risk of developing painful joints as you get older. Many of these steps—like exercising and eating a healthy diet— prevent other diseases too.
…Protect Your Joints
Using the right techniques when sitting, working, and lifting can help protect joints from everyday strains. For example, lift with your knees and hips—not your back—when picking up objects….
Have a Drink
A study in BMJ suggested that women who drink moderate amounts of alcohol have a lower risk of rheumatoid arthritis. This one study can’t prove that alcohol prevents arthritis. However, drinking moderate amounts each week (one glass a day for women and two glasses for men) has also been linked to other health benefits, such as a lower risk for heart disease…

And once you alter the mechanics of your ankles to compensate for that, you can begin a process where the mechanics of other joints are also altered, through your knees up to your hips, etc. So, take care of your injuries, whether to the ankles, knees, or elsewhere…”

9 Natural Remedies for Psoriatic Arthritis by Amanda Gardner health.com
“…When it comes to natural treatments for psoriatic arthritis, there’s not a ton of research. Conventional drugs have been shown to delay damage from the disease, but alternative therapies have not.
“Many of these supplements or vitamins may ease some of the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis, but none have been shown to prevent damage,” says Guy Fiocco, MD, assistant professor of internal medicine at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine, in Bryan.
That said, here are nine vitamins or remedies that may be helpful in addition to conventional treatment….
A member of the ginger family, this spice may ease symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. The reasoning seems to be that turmeric has an effect on reducing certain inflammatory proteins, at least in the test tube, explains Dr. Matteson.
Vitamin D deficiencies are common in people with psoriatic arthritis, a 2011 study found, but it wasn’t clear why. (Because sun exposure ups the body’s vitamin D, spending time indoors can lead to a deficiency.)
Sal: What are some ways (e.g. walk, biking, yard work, etc..) to absorb the sun? How about winter time? I usually take this Vitamin D supplement-only on days when the sun didn’t come out.
Although vitamin K—which is found in green, leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach, and broccoli, as well as canola and olive oils—is important for joint health, it has not been studied in psoriatic arthritis.
However, one report found that low vitamin K levels were associated with more severe osteoarthritis in a group of almost 700 patients.
Like vitamin D, one study found that vitamin B12 deficiencies were more common in people with psoriatic arthritis than those without it.
But again, like vitamin D, B12 doesn’t seem to be a primary treatment option, says Dr. Fiocco, who is also the director of rheumatology at Scott & White, in Temple, Texas.
Vitamin B12 is found in clams, trout, fortified breakfast cereals, and yogurt…”

How I Healed My Arthritis Naturally fellowshipoftheminds.com
“..Immediately, I stopped eating and drinking everything I was used to and began a bland diet of organic brown rice, organic broccoli, and organic lettuce. For drinking and cooking, I used only distilled water.
Within a week, my pain began to subside, first in my hand and forearm, and then in my shoulder. In two weeks, I felt immensely better and could actually raise my arm over my head, something I had not been able to do for the last three months…
The main key, the primary ingredient, in healing my arthritis naturally was removing allergic foods from my diet, and almost all of these were processed foods. As those foods were eliminated, my pain and stiffness just melted away. Which begs the question……
Finally, if I had to heal my arthritis again, I would pray more. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of documented studies detailing the remarkable effects of prayer on healing. Why buck the evidence? It’s free, it’s easy, and it works…”
