What is arthritis?

Arthritis is an inflammation of one or more joints.  The inflammation can cause a deterioration of the cartilage if not treated properly.  Arthritis can cause pain which can affect sleep, mobility and quality of life.

How can I treat it naturally?

Before a treatment plan can be put in place, we first have to determine the underlying cause(s).

The body is wise and trying to convey to you, using the language of “symptoms”, that something you are doing is not agreeing with it.  Dr. Wells will help figure out what your body is saying and correct the problems.  The internal environment of the body produces an external reflection.  Most likely the cause is due to an internal physiological imbalance in the body.

Whether your arthritis is osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.  Dr. Wells will determine the underlying cause(s) of your arthritis.  Many times arthritis is a result of eating foods you cannot digest.  This is called food intolerance.  Blood work or other specialty testing may be needed.  Then treatment can begin.

How long before I notice a difference?

Every patient is unique and healing happens faster for some than others.  Treatment protocols usually last from 3 – 6 months to heal the underlying cause.  Most notice improvements within a week or two.

What’s involved in natural treatment?

It is likely Dr. Wells will have you change your diet in some way.  Some natural treatments such as oral herbs, vitamins, minerals, IV nutrients or acupuncture may be needed.  A specific weight management will be prescribed to lessen the work and stress on the joints.
