( — November 8, 2018) Orlando, FL — Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the arthritis conditions that are extremely common today, particularly in the United States. It has been notoriously reputed to reduce quality of life, and even shorten lifespan.

The good news is that in a study, it has been found that the mortality rate among RA sufferers has reduced.

This is the first time in years in which individuals with the condition experience significantly less disability than in the past decades.

The World Health Organization data reveals that in 2011, rheumatoid arthritis was the underlying cause of mortality in 8,428 cases. That was a reduction from 9,281 deaths in 1987.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), early treatment can curb aggressive disease activity of even early RA deaths. Early treatments pertain to intervention within six months of diagnosis.

Scientists are now trying to determine the specific approaches that aided in reducing RA-linked mortality rate.

It has been found early treatments means catching the condition in the early part of its progression. The researchers were able to see that individuals with reduced disease activity fared better on a long term basis.

However overall, those who reported a lower disease activity early on, there was no increase in disability rates seven years after diagnosis.

While there was disability, it was moderate but still better than in the previous decades.

According to Suzanne Verstappen, PhD, this research emphasizes the importance of early treatment and the long-term benefits of early treatment.

Verstappen is a senior research fellow at the University of Manchester, and a lead researcher on the study.

Rheumatoid arthritis has no cure yet, but can be managed. There are pharmaceutical drugs formulated to ease pain. However, there are also natural, safer alternatives like ashwagandha.

This herb is widely popularized by its adaptogenic, anti-stress, analgesic, immunomodulatory, and anti-inflammatory effects. It has been found to have soothing effects on the nervous system.

According to scientists, ashwagandha has a great potential to control inflammation. This is believed to be significantly helpful in cases of arthritis. In some studies, subjects receiving ashwagandha achieved improvements in RA swelling and pain.

It is believed that ashwagandha may be helpful for those who struggle with arthritis. It is worth mentioning the use of this natural remedy has been linked with many health benefits.
