Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition, which means it’s caused by the immune system attacking healthy body tissue.
However, it’s not yet known what triggers this. Your immune system normally makes antibodies that attack bacteria and viruses, helping to fight infection.
Here is how to treat rheumatism and body pain
- Make a maceration of 2 tablespoons of securidaca Longedunculata root bark powder (wolof fouf or snake tree) in 3 tablespoons of water for 15 minutes, then incorporate the mixture into 5 tablespoons of shea butter. Lightly massage the painful areas morning and evening for one to three weeks.
- Massage painful joints 3 times a day with Balanitis Aegyptiaca fruit oil (commonly called ”date palm”).
Rub the painful parts with alcohol prepared with 30 g of cassia occidentalis roots (false kinkéliba) for 1 liter of alcohol.
To avoid having rheumatism
Drink 2 to 3 cups a day of the decoction of the leaves or bark of the mango tree (mangifera indica).
