There are many different forms of arthritis, but are any of them linked to Candida? Find out…
“Is chronic and progressive arthritis linked to Candida?” Well, it depends on what type of arthritis we’re dealing with. There’s different forms of arthritis. There’s osteoarthritis, the wear and tear one. There’s rheumatoid arthritis, which is an autoimmune arthritis. There’s gouty, which is a buildup of uric acid in the body.
I’m assuming that you’re talking about osteoarthritis. That’s generally not linked to Candida at all. That’s more of a genetic component and also wear and tear on the body. It can involve different types of joints like the back, hips or the knees, shoulders. Rheumatoid arthritis tends to be more inflammatory in heat and pain by nature. It often involves the smaller joints like the wrists or the fingers. That’s autoimmune. That’s the immune system attacking different joint tissues.
It is fair to say that if you’ve got any gut related issues and many people with arthritis have got gut related issues that they should be on top of those problems. If you’ve got arthritis and you’re watching this now, my first recommendation is to try to get your digestive system up to a very high level of heath. If there is any bloating, gas, constipation or diarrhea, if you’ve got known food allergies, these things all need to be resolved.
It’s very important to have an excellent digestive system because that will allow the joints to rebuild. It’s a fair comment to say that every so many years, the body renews itself. The tissues get replaced and it’s based on the kind of quality of food that you’re eating. By eating really good food all the time and improving digestive health, you’re going to allow the joints to rebuild. You also maybe need to be assessed for toxins in your body. There’s different ways that can be assessed by your clinician as well.
Detoxification may also be necessary, particularly in the early stages of treatment of arthritis. It might be good.
Of course, there are certain supplements that you might want to take for arthritis, but these things should all be discussed with your physician. I can’t see a direct link with Candida really and different forms of arthritis like osteo. Many rheumatoid patients do have Candida in some degree. It needs to be fixed up. They often have a kind of a fungal infection. Rheumatoid arthritis being linked to things like diseased teeth or small infections in the tonsils or a small infection around the ileocecal valve or appendix. These can form little hot spots and really cause inflammatory reactions.
Anyone with rheumatoid arthritis should have a stool test done by default to determine if there’s any inflammatory gut condition going on that needs cleaning up as well. Candida can well be a part of that gut condition. I hope that answers the question. Thanks for tuning in.
