RA is caused by leaky gut and that is curable. The medication taken to ease the pain also makes the leaky gut worse so that you will never ever effect a cure with medication. Simply cure the gut to cure the RA. It appears most are interested in short term pain relief and not the cure. Leaky cure is caused by birth control,antibiotics, alcohol, sugar and just a poor diet. The medical industry is more interested in short term symptoms than cures and any that want a cure can do so if they address the leaky gut. Remember the drug industry is not in the cure business, they are in the treatment business. It make take as long as a year to cure the leaky gut and for those that have been on medication a while it can take longer because there may be more damage.
