New Approach to Rheumatoid Arthritis
Date:7/2/2010

Dr. David Blyweiss Reverses Symptoms in Patients Unresponsive to Conventional Medical Treatments.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) July 2, 2010 -- Amy, a 55 year-old in the health care industry, was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in December 2007. Under traditional drug treatment, which included five daily pills and injections, Amy's condition only worsened, and the side effects of the medications were wearing her down. Before considering functional medicine, Amy was miserable; unhealthy, overweight, and moody. The adult acne and fatigue were the last straws. Her arthritis was so bad that she could not even use a stapler.

She describes Dr. David Blyweiss's treatment as "going on a diet for my life," because that is essentially what it is. After identifying which toxins, food allergens and triggers in Amy's body were causing her symptoms, and noting how badly her GI tract was affected, Dr. Blyweiss put her on a two-week detoxification plan. Then, he worked with Amy on a new diet plan that eliminated toxic foods and infused probiotic and essential mineral and nutrient supplements into her diet. She began to feel a difference immediately. Her results were not only physical, but emotional as well. She no longer feels worn down, depressed, or anxious about her limitations. She was overjoyed to find that "being healthy actually makes you feel much better about yourself. Functional medicine gave me my life back." Amy's rheumatoid arthritis is in remission…and she has lost twenty pounds.

Functional Medicine, while not an alternative form of medicine, does approach patient treatment differently. It is 100% patient centered, focusing on biochemical individuality, patient lifestyle, diet and the antecedents and triggers that cause chronic degenerative disease. Functional Physicians evaluate their patient's histories, lifestyle habits, physical exam and diagnostics at a "medical detective" level to find the root causes of chronic conditions, like rheumatoid arthritis. Instead of prescribing medications, which only treat the symptoms of these conditions, Dr. David Blyweiss works with his patients to make lifestyle adjustments that can actually reverse the disease process. Rather than the conventional model of one ICD-9 disease diagnosis and one or more pharmaceutical drugs to treat symptoms, functional medicine physicians have been able to reverse most of the symptomatology of their patients' chronic medical conditions…and frequently reverse their diagnoses. Dr. Blyweiss began treating patients at the Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center in Boca Raton this year with this new approach to medicine.

Since each treatment plan is based on a patient's specific biochemistry, history, physical exam and functional test results, no two functional medicine patients are treated the same way. Like Amy, many are finding that this highly individualized, patient centered treatment is the only thing that works for them. Because it responds to imbalances of deficiencies and toxicities in the body, and not just symptoms, functional medicine can actually reverse chronic conditions that many people wrongly assume they need to learn to live with. In addition to rheumatoid arthritis, Dr. Blyweiss also treats patients with Crohn's Disease, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

According to Dr. Blyweiss, the best time to enact a functional medicine treatment plan is "the sooner the better". Patients diagnosed with a new "Pre-something disease like pre-SLE or pre-diabetes have an excellent chance of not getting/suffering the full blown disease if lifestyle changes begin soon enough, before patients even exhibit any symptoms," he states. Simple blood tests will show if a patient is at risk for developing these conditions. Tests are especially important for people with a family history of an auto immune disease or other chronic condition.
