Traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis
Full Title: Traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis: a general review
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is difficult to cure. Many methods have been used for its treatment, among which traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been considered as an important strategy.

Many effective ingredients of anti-rheumatic Chinese herbs have been found to inhibit RA development and some of the effective ingredients have been verified. Furthermore, greatly enhanced life quality of RA patients was obtained using acupuncture and massage to relieve pain, expand joint motion and modulate emotion which mainly correlated with the possible modulation of immune system, nerve system, endocrine system, etc. Thus, a systemic review on the therapeutic effect of TCM on RA is necessary.

This means that your digestion system and other major life-sustaining organs are fully functioning and your immune system is working at its best. The opposite state is called a sympathetic response. Typically those systems and organs that were operating at their best in the parasympathetic mode are now taking a subordinate role...
For each and every one of us there are times when we feel, sad, lonely, and wish that our situation was better. This is a natural, normal feeling that we all go through. In fact, it may be just a matter of our biorhythms fluctuating every 90 minutes or so or just helping us balance our life after a period of exhilaration. On the other hand, if these feelings are persistent and so severe as to prevent you from participating in normal relationships and regular activities, just possibly you may have chronic depression and need assistance.
