Rheumatism

Rheumatism is a disease in which the body’s immune system cells go out of control for some reason and damage their own tissue. Acute Rheumatic Fever, Eczema, Asthma, Psoriasis, Behçet’s disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Lupus are rheumatic diseases that occur with the same logic. Rheumatism is affected by many reasons such as genetic factors, environmental, psychological and nutrition. Depending on the type of rheumatism, different sexes, regions or organs are targeted. Acute rheumatic fever affects the joints and heart, while Behçet’s disease targets the veins and skin. Why the immune system cells get out of control is still not fully explained. New views say that rheumatic diseases are caused by impaired intestinal permeability. In addition, there is evidence that mistakes made in hygiene negatively affect the development of natural immunity. After all, a complex war ensues when food particles, toxins, or microbes that cross the intestinal wall, where the body’s best fighters are, encounter the inside fighters who don’t know how to fight very well. Some parts of our body that belong to itself are also seen as enemies and are damaged. In this case, rheumatism is revealed. Sometimes the skin, sometimes the joints, and sometimes the internal organs, depending on the type of rheumatism findings occur. Usually, redness, heat increase, intense pain in the joints develop first. If it is not treated during this period, the damage will become permanent. Subsequent treatments cannot restore the tissue to its original state. The people around us who have deformities in their hands or spine are usually rheumatism patients who are not treated in time. Permanent problems may occur in the internal organs as well as in the joints. Heart, kidney and lung failures can be seen due to rheumatism. Although suppressing immune cells is the main treatment method, especially in the initial phase of rheumatism treatment, it seems more rational to repair the intestines and direct the immune system to behave correctly. Today, treatments such as stool transplantation have also been started for this purpose, but due to the small number and difficulty of cases, the evaluation of effects and side effects is still incomplete.
