I am near convinced that RA is caused by amoebas, as described by Dr. Wyburn-Mason, in his articles. From what I've read on the issue (quite a lot in the last six months or so), I am left with the impression that many people have this amoeba in them, and only some have a reaction to it, a reaction which presents itself as the set of symptoms called rheumatoid arthritis, or some other rheumatoid disease.
If this is true, it means that RA sufferers are 'allergic' to this amoeba, while others are unaffected by it. Instead of trying to eliminate the amoebas, which may easily re-invade at any time, might not it be wiser to attempt to cure the 'allergic' reaction? If so, how? It may be as simple as a deficiency, or imbalance of some trace mineral(s) that no-one ever thinks of (a lot of alleries are). It makes sense to me, as most people that I know who have RA are unhealthy in one or more other ways (high-stress, sedentary, under-weight, over-weight, bad diets, etc).
I would find it interesting to design a survey, in which a good number of diverse RA patients submit a very thorough summary of overall health, and look for patterns, common factors across the sample group (the reaction may be caused by a combination of factors, or by more than one factor, without others present).
A DISCLAIMER OF SORTS: This is my thinking at the present moment (the above was me thinking 'out-loud' as it were); if I'm wrong, please don't hesitate to help me; I'm trying to make a real difference, not to say "I'm right and you're wrong, or to start an argument (scholarly debates are good, though), or sell anything. I feel that I should also mention that I have had RA for most of my life (I was diagnosed when I was about 2 or 3; I'm 19 now), so I don't want to hear, "You don't know what it's like!" I do.
I'd better stop rambling now. Thanks.
