Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes progressive pain, inflammation and eventual destruction of the joints.
The hallmark feature of this condition is long term inflammation of joints that is mirrored on the opposite joint. It affects the hands, wrists and feet, though any joint lined by a synovial membrane may be involved.
Early diagnosis is key and by implementing supplementation, changes in lifestyle and the environment, RA’s impact can be lessened.

The medicinal use of cannabis was made illegal in Australia 50 years ago. In 2014 the argument has found new momentum but concerns still exist due to cannabis’ reputation as being a hazardous drug rather then concentrating on its medicinal benefits.
Australians with painful and dire symptoms from serious conditions are unable to legally alleviate their symptoms with medicinal cannabis. The conventional medicines for these conditions often work but they are sometimes ineffective or produce unacceptable side effects.
Medicinal cannabis provides a viable alternative to orthodox drugs yet it is still in a legal minefield. It’s time for the Australian government to provide a civilised, progressive and compassionate delivery of medicinal cannabis to those in need.

Something as simple as vitamin B supplements could change the lives of hundreds of thousands of migraine sufferers.
New research has discovered that 1 in 5 people prone to migraines have an enzyme that doesn’t work as well as other people. The MTHFR gene makes people susceptible to migraine attacks when there is a mutation or dysfunction in this gene.
Since some people don’t respond to current migraine remedies, this new research could significantly help those with a genetic predisposition to this condition.
Read on to find out how genetic testing and B vitamins can help reduce your migraines.
