The DaSilva Institute goes beyond simply relieving the crippling pain of arthritis to actually rebuilding cartilage — something the conventional drug approach does not address.
Conventional Medicine’s Approach
Arthritis is one of the most common of all physical complaints, affecting more than 20 percent of American adults. And for nearly 18 million of them, arthritis causes enough pain and functional impairment to physically limit their daily activities.
If you suffer with arthritis, your doctor has probably offered you little beyond pain-relieving medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
The most common NSAIDs are non-prescription (over-the-counter) ibuprofen and aspirin. These drugs send 100,000 people to the hospital every year, primarily for gastrointestinal bleeding.
Prescribe drugs like COX-2 inhibitors Vioxx and Celebrex have been known to cause an array of cardiovascular complications as well as more severe reactions resulting in heart attack, stroke and even death.
To add further insult to injury, NSAIDs block the body’s mechanism for healing the joints and regenerating cartilage.
While you might get some short-term relief by taking NSAIDs, these drugs tend to make your arthritis worse in the long run. And if you rely on acetaminophen (Tylenol), you could end up with serious liver or kidney damage.
At the DaSilva Institute, we offer revolutionary but completely natural treatments for arthritis that not only alleviate the symptoms of arthritis, but also help to repair the joints and rebuild cartilage.
There is a strong connection between diet, gastrointestinal pathology (even if silent), and inflammation.
For arthritis sufferers, inflammation means pain. Certain foods stimulate the formation of inflammatory chemicals, while others actually reduce inflammation.
Parasites, yeast, and other organisms in the gut can activate the body’s immune system response, leading to arthritis. Hormonal imbalance is also another very important and common cause of arthritic pain due to their powerful ability to regulate the immune system.
