Rheumatoid ArthritisTreatment

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) causes inflammation in the lining of the joints, leaving them swollen and painful, which can lead to bone erosion and deformity. More common in women than in men, rheumatoid arthritis usually affects people in their 40’s, though individuals of all ages can be diagnosed.

Usually, if a joint on one side of the body is inflamed, chances are the corresponding joint on the other side of the body is inflamed also. The symmetry of joint pain is a telltale characteristic of RA that distinguishes it from other types of arthritis, such as osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, and lupus. We offer rheumatoid arthritis treatment here at Angel Longevity Medical Center.

The symptoms

The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is not known, but experts believe a faulty immune system is to blame. RA can be difficult to diagnose due to the symptoms mimicking signs of other known illnesses and because they come and go sporadically (flare-up).

Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Tender, warm, and swollen joints
  • Inflammation of small joints in the hands, fingers, and feet
  • Rheumatoid nodules or firm bumps of tissue under the skin
  • Long-lasting morning stiffness

Rheumatoid arthritis vs osteoarthritis: What’s the difference?

Rheumatoid arthritis should not be confused with osteoarthritis, which is a completely different disease that’s caused by wear and tear on the bones and joints and influenced by factors such as age, obesity, and injury.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that affects the entire body.

Some of the other major differences include:

The symptoms

Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms can include joint pain, stiffness, reduced range of motion, and swelling, but it can also cause fever, fatigue, and loss of energy. Osteoarthritis only involves joint pain, stiffness, and sometimes mild swelling.

Time of occurrence

Rheumatoid arthritis tends to be worse in the morning or after long periods of inactivity, while osteoarthritis worsens with exertion and throughout the day.

Location of disease

Rheumatoid arthritis often causes swelling in pairs of smaller joints, such as the hands or ankles, and osteoarthritis causes inflammation in weight-bearing joints, such as the hips, knees, back, neck, and small finger joints.

Age of onset

Rheumatoid arthritis usually develops between the ages of 30 and 50, and it may even occur in adolescence. Osteoarthritis occurs in people that are middle-aged or older. In the U.S., only 1.3 million people have rheumatoid arthritis and over 21 million have osteoarthritis.

Our difference

There is no cure for this condition, and most traditional rheumatoid arthritis treatments focus on controlling symptoms. This is where Angel Longevity Medical Center is different.

Dr. Mathur’s approach as an integrative functional doctor is one of a medical detective.

She gathers all the clues of the patient’s past through extensive personal and family histories and their present lifestyle, potential toxins in the environment, social life, stress level, relationships, diet, workout regimen, sleep habits, and symptoms. Armed with this information, and all appropriate lab tests, she strives to uncover how and why the body is not functioning well.

Meet Dr. Anju Mathur

Dr. Anju Mathur’s “Back to Wellness Program” has helped countless men and women that have suffered from rheumatoid arthritis. Many people have been able to overcome the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis with Dr. Mathur’s approach.

Our detailed rheumatoid arthritis treatment allows Dr. Mathur to tailor a treatment protocol to suit an individual’s exact imbalances and disharmonies. Upon the initial evaluation, she will assess multiple aspects of the patient’s lifestyle, history, and current habits, and run the necessary tests to help her thoroughly analyze the individual’s condition.

From there, Dr. Mathur will create the patient’s rheumatoid arthritis treatment plan, which will consist of different phases of healing throughout her “Back to Wellness Program.” Patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis have been able to conquer the effects of this autoimmune condition and greatly improve their health with Dr. Mathur’s unique approach.

Some other common autoimmune disorders Dr. Mathur specializes in treating include Graves’ disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, lupus, multiple sclerosis (MS), Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

The rheumatoid arthritis treatment experience What to expect

Dr. Mathur offers a personalized “Back to Wellness Program” to address the underlying causes of rheumatoid arthritis, ease inflammation, and bring patients back to health. As part of this approach, she offers several therapies that may lessen the effects of the condition, including:

IV nutrient therapy

can allow the body to get the nutrition it needs to support a healthy immune system and overcome the inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis.

Phospholipid exchange therapy

can detoxify the body at a cellular level, and it may cleanse the cells of systemic toxins to improve overall organ function.

Chelation therapy

can also help to detoxify the body, which may improve immune system function and organ health.

Ultraviolet blood irradiation

may help to cleanse the blood of harmful bacteria and viruses, which may reduce the effects of rheumatoid arthritis.

Covid19 and Your Immune System – A special message from Our Founder, Dr. Anju Mathur

Update March, 22nd:

We remain open to provide crucial services to all our patients and we are welcoming new patients.

Our most important goal is to remain healthy and maintain or build a strong immune system. In an effort to do so, we researched and have found a special test to analyze the overall state of health of your immune system.

A healthy immune system is the only thing that will either keep you from getting Covid19 or if you do contract it, keep the symptoms as mild as possible and the recovery as quick as possible. Because of this, we want to provide the opportunity for you to come in and have the overall health of your immune system tested.

If you are interested in this new blood test to find out what the overall state of your immune system is like, you should contact us right away and make an appointment.

We have negotiated some very special pricing on this test and are including your test and report of findings consultation with Dr. Anju Mathur along with her recommendations to maintain your overall immune health for only $199.

Our doctor has also prepared a special message for you:

Update March, 16th:

In recent weeks we have all seen the news about the Coronavirus and even worse, we have seen blatantly threatening news reports, and our friends and family scared out of their wits.

I urge you not to panic. If you are not sure what to do, contact us and we will help you.

Coronavirus is real, but for healthy people it is not a death sentence. The mortality rate is only relatively high in immune compromised people or with other medical issues. Per Dr. SHIVA Ayyadurai, MIT PhD, “Viruses are NOT what kill & harm us (trillions of them in & around us) - rather the over-reaction of a weak & dysfunctional immune system caused by “underlying pre-existing conditions””… “CDCgov can bring CoronaVirus to its knees fast & stop deaths of seniors & immunocompromised by AT LEAST EQUAL emphasis- NOW - on specific foods & supplements to STRENGTHEN our Immune Systems.”

The best and right thing to do is to build up your immune system to be more resistant. In addition to high dose vitamin C, major autohemotherapy, and ultraviolet blood irradiation intravenous therapy, we are putting together our anti-viral supplement package for you. Call us for details.

Until then, we recommend you use very good hygiene practices:

  1. Wash your hands for 40 seconds with soap and hot water.
  2. Wear a mask if you are sick, coughing or sneezing, or have mucus. (Change mask every day).
  3. Wipe down your phone and doorknobs.
  4. Do not touch your face (eyes, nose, mouth).
  5. Use chemical-free anti-bacterial sprays and wipes (you can use essential oils, apple cider vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide)

Also, I want to share a wonderful anti-viral tea recipe:

Anti Viral TEA Recipe by Dr Mathur


  1. Fresh Grated Ginger-3 Tablespoons
  2. black whole kernels peppercorns- 20-30 pieces
  3. Cinnamon Stick- 1
  4. Black Cloves- 5-8.

Place all of the above ingredients in 3 cups of water and then boil for 20-30 minutes until the water turns black. Then strain it and drink it with some coconut or Almond milk and palm sugar or stevia.

Remember, these symptoms are treatable. You do not have to freak out. Be smart, keep your immune system healthy.

If you do contract the virus, let us know. Don’t panic, we are here for you.

Find facts instead of hysteria here.

John Hopkins reports 70,000 people have recovered worldwide.


Highest percentage of deaths are from immunocompromised patients and patients over 80 years old.
