Dr. Merry Li
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease. The body’s immune system normally attacks and destroys harmful foreign substances, such as bacteria and viruses. With an autoimmune disease, the immune system becomes confused and attacks our own body. In the case of RA, it attacks the lining of the joints, causing inflammation, pain, and eventually damage and deformity of the joints. It usually affects both sides of the body equally, and is prone to exhibiting active phases with periods of remission in between. Some of the body’s organ systems may also be affected, such as the heart, lungs, eyes, or skin. Although the cause is unclear, it is most likely a combination of genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors.
Rheumatoid arthritis is different from other forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis or gout. RA is the only type that is caused by a dysfunction of the immune system.
The RA-FLEX contains 14 different Chinese herbal ingredients that work together to improve your joint health and alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. The formula focuses on alleviating pain and inflammation by using herbs that warm the joints, invigorate circulation of Blood and Qi (pronounced ‘chee’ – the body’s vital energy), and reduce swelling. It nourishes the body’s vital essence at a deep level, and also harmonizes the immune system, an important consideration with any autoimmune disease. It is designed to control the symptoms of RA, and also to prevent flare-ups.
The herbal formula is very safe and effective, with no known side-effects. It is manufactured in the USA in a GMP-certified facility, and is FDA approved for safety.
