Rheumatoid Arthritis and Seronegative Rheumatoid Arthritis

Seronegative rheumatoid arthritis patients are those patients who have been diagnosed as having rheumatoid arthritis but remain rheumatoid factor negative on their blood test. Overall these patients have a better prognosis and a better survival rate than test positive RA patients. They experience fewer joint problems, but erosive disease may still be present nevertheless. However, seronegative rheumatoid arthritis is one of those diagnoses doctors make when they have no idea what's really happening. One should always look out for other possible diagnoses such as systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriatic arthritis, and for the presence of microcrystalline deposits such as those seen in gout or pseudogout.

That said, the Baseline of Health® Program, as detailed in, Lesson's from the Miracle Doctors, would be beneficial in all of the above circumstances. In fact, it's designed to deal with chronic illness of non-specific causes. If you have not already done so, you can download a free copy at on this site. You may find the following sections of special interest.

  • The detoxes -- particularly heavy metal detoxing and blood cleansing
  • Raising body pH
  • The use of immune boosters such as AHCC and echinacea and pau d' arco and pathogen destroyers such as garlic, oil of oregano, and olive leaf extract can take on any pathogenic bacterial components.
  • The use of proteolytic enzymes such as pHi-Zymes to reduce inflammation systemically and reduce the incidence of cirulating immune compelxes.
  • Supplementation with Omega-3 fatty acids can also help with inflammation.
  • The use of progesterone creme to combat excessive estrogen, which can be a factor in both joint inflammation and lupus. And yes, this can be a problem for men too.
  • Dietary changes to remove the primary allergens, such as dairy, from your body.
  • Etc.

In some cases, Essential Relief pain oil can be helpful providing temporary relief.

    I just want to say thanks for your Triple Jointed product. My mom is 70 years old with osteoarthritis. She suffered with aches and pains for over 15 years with nothing helping. When she started using your product she felt improvements in 2 weeks and can walk now with no assistance or a walker. God Bless You!

    The rheumatoid arthritis factor test (more usually known as RF as opposed to RA) is used to help diagnose rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and to distinguish it from other forms of arthritis and other conditions that cause similar symptoms of joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness.
    In patients with symptoms and clinical signs of rheumatoid arthritis, the presence of significant concentrations of RF indicates that it is likely that they have RA.
    A negative RF test does not rule out RA. About 20% of patients with RA will be persistently negative for RF and/or may have very low levels of RF.
    Positive RF test results, on the other hand, may also be seen in healthy patients and in patients with conditions such as: endocarditis; systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus); tuberculosis; syphilis; sarcoidosis; cancer; viral infection; or disease of the liver, lung, or kidney -- although the RF test is not used to diagnose or monitor these conditions.

    Hi,
    I went to a local holistic and natural health center and we discuss how we can manage the arthritis symptoms of my 60 year old Mom.
    Based on the symptoms, we came to the conclusion that my mom should start using daily intake of liquid silicium with Omega-3 fish oil supplements to sooth the pain and start regenerating the tissues: joints and cartilages that are symptomatic.
    I was aware of the Omega-3 supplements benefits but silicium suprprised me but convinced me.
    What do you think about that Mr. Barron ?

    For obvious legal reasons, we cannot diagnose or prescribe for specific conditions—merely provide information. With that in mind…

    Inflammation is not the cause of psoriatic arthritis, it is merely a symptom brought on by a confused immune system attacking its own body. You might find the following article informative. http://www.jonbarron.org/article/psoriasis-drug-raptiva-kills
