RA Control Blueprint

Frustrated With A Medical System That Relies Heavily On Drug-Only Treatments For Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)? Three Discoveries Are Providing Hope For RA Patients

“Even If You’ve Been Told Your Current Treatment Is The Only Answer”

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is one of the most common and debilitating autoimmune conditions in the world. In the United States alone, the number of cases of RA has been increasing over the past decade. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1.5 million adults have been diagnosed with RA, and this number is exapted to rise.

The cost of RA has also been increasing. The total cost of RA in the United States was estimated to be $19.3 billion in 2015, and this number is projected to increase to $26 billion by 2030. The cost per patient with RA has also been rising, with an estimated cost of $19,000 per patient in 2015.

These costs are driven by several factors, including medications to manage RA symptoms, provider consultations, hospitalizations, and lost productivity.

With the traditional medical approach, a limited number of drugs are used to manage symptoms. Typically, these drugs, strategically called ‘disease-modifying drugs’ or (DMD’s), work by suppressing the immune system which ultimately reduces inflammation. As I’ll review in a moment, these drugs also suppress a number of other important functions of the immune system. Further, while this method can provide temporary relief, it fails to address the underlying issues that cause the disease and can have potentially serious side effects.

Some mistakenly have the impression that autoimmune conditions like RA are the result of an immune system that’s too strong and needs to be suppressed.

The reality is that the immune system becomes dysregulated in autoimmunity and needs help getting back in balance.

The immune system becomes dysregulated and needs help getting back into balance
As an essential component of our body’s defense mechanism, the immune system performs a multitude of critical functions to protect us from a variety of potential threats.

One of the most well-known responsibilities is its role in fighting off harmful bacteria, viruses, and other microscopic invaders that can trigger infections.

Dually crucial is the immune system’s power to destroy cells that have damaged or mutated DNA, the fundamental genetic structure within every one of our 75 trillion cells. It is essential to acknowledge that damaged DNA can fuel uncontrolled growth in cancerous cells. Therefore, the ability of this phenomenon to destroy these cells carries undeniable significance.

The immune system is not just a warrior against illnesses, but is a powerhouse, capable of expertly mending tissue damaged by a plethora of factors – from physical trauma to chemical exposure, to UV radiation, to stress. A healthy immune system is essential for healing.
So, it’s worth questioning why the go-to method for treating RA involves a broad array of immune suppressing drugs.

Be warned, the answer to that question may make your blood pressure rise!

But first, let me introduce myself…

My name is Deb Lamkin. In my late 20s (now 45), I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of RA. Through my years of research, I made three discoveries that helped put my debilitating disease into remission, which I have maintained for over a decade.

Before we dive in, let’s get acquainted…

Throughout my career in nutrition and clinical research, I’ve had the privilege of working with thousands of patients to identify and address the root causes of their health concerns. In synergy with my husband, Dr. Brian Lamkin, our approach to medicine is rooted in the principles of functional medicine.

Functional medicine is where we investigate root causes for chronic medical conditions and create comprehensive programs to reverse the condition.

Over the course of fifteen years now our clinic has been at the forefront of functional medicine, with a track record of success stories and satisfied patients. As a researcher myself, I have always been passionate about exploring alternative modalities that can offer real solutions to chronic health issues, and functional medicine was a natural fit for me.

Many individuals diagnosed with RA are often trapped in a cycle of taking multiple prescription drugs, commonly referred to as the ‘drug-stack trap’, to manage their symptoms.

Trapped in a cycle of taking multiple prescription drugs…the ‘drug-stack trap’

It’s important to understand that while prescription medications may provide temporary relief for RA symptoms, they often come with a range of side effects, some serious, that can negatively impact a person’s quality of life.

As we address the issue with the drug-stack trap, to note that while I can’t disclose any specific brand names, it’s worth taking a closer look at the information provided on the labels of our prescribed drugs for RA. Upon inspection, you may notice minor side effects listed, such as allergic reactions, nausea, and fatigue, among others.

Look closer and you’ll see that they have increased risk for infection and ‘may increase risk for some cancers.’

If a drug increases risk for infection and cancer, it increases risk for death itself, YES?

Whoa, talk about needing to read the fine print!

To add to my fear and trepidation of taking these drugs at the time, they don’t always work. And if they work initially, they may stop working later leading to the drug-stack trap.

The drug-stack trap is where you keep taking more and more pharmaceuticals or switching from one to other, leading to more side effects and never really addressing the problem.

After carefully weighing the possible adverse reactions of pharmaceuticals and their uncertainty in effectively treating RA, my resolve to uncover the underlying cause of this debilitating condition was only strengthened.

RA is a chronic inflammatory problem that leads to joint deformation, but once the inflammatory process is halted, healing can occur.

Once the inflammatory process is halted, healing can occur (unless the entire immune system is suppressed!

In my research, there were three specific discoveries, that when addressed, halted the inflammatory process, improved tissue healing, and closed the window to autoimmunity. This is how I put my RA into remission and I’m going to show you how I did it. We know this system can help anyone with RA, not just the newly diagnosed.

Traditional RA drugs fall short in tackling the root cause of the disease. Our medical system has failed RA patients in this regard and prefers an immune suppressing drug-only approach.

Unfortunately, it’s mostly all financial, as you can imagine. Our medical care system is built on efficiency. What’s more efficient than prescribing a drug and sending a patient on their way?

It’s actually a little more complicated than that. However, part of it is that the multi-billion-dollar pharmaceutical industry is imbedded within our medical education system. Doctors come out of medical school and residency indoctrinated that drugs are the only ‘evidence-based answers.’

Hmmm…what if all the evidence was created by those that are set to profit?

Pharmaceuticals can be great discoveries and are often lifesaving, but should they be the first, second, and only option for our medical needs?

Well, I certainly don’t think so!

The truth is, that it’s all part of a system that is indeed efficient…and very profitable for the hospital conglomerates and pharmaceutical industry but fails in chronic conditions like RA because it doesn’t get to the root cause and doesn’t provide comprehensive solutions for healing.

After a decade of successfully keeping my RA in remission and helping others with RA and various autoimmune disorders, I now feel compelled to share my discoveries and I’m committed, now more than ever, to using my expertise in helping others achieve the same success.

Join me for a free, no obligation, webinar, in which I’ll go through what I’ve learned.

Don’t worry, you don’t have to have a science or medical degree to understand!

Are you ready to get a new perspective?

Would you like help gaining control of RA, rather than being at the mercy of a prescription that may cause side effects worse than the condition itself?

Are you excited to learn new ways to help your RA?

If so, you won’t want to miss this short teaching. I’ll go through the three discoveries I made and provide resources and ways to help you.

The great news is that no matter if you’re newly diagnosed or you’ve had RA for years, there are therapies that you’ve never heard of that can be added to help your pain, improve immune function, help your joints heal, and improve your life.

Just think how your life would change if you weren’t shackled by daily pain and fatigue.
You would probably enjoy more time with friends and family.

You likely would be able to be more active to improve other areas of your health.
Your mental outlook would improve. Unfortunately, it’s very common for chronic pain to lead to depression. This would get better and may resolve completely.

If you’re on an immune suppressing drug, learning about the three discoveries can help create a pathway off and reduce your risk of some of those serious side effects we talked about. Now that would be a huge win!

If you’re tired of a drug only approach…

No more fear
No more pain
No more loss of function

It’s time to take control!
