Author of the bestselling The Immune System Recovery Plan shares her science-based, drug-free treatment plan for the almost fifty million people who suffer from arthritis: an amazing 3-step guide to eliminate the disease naturally.

Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the world—greater than both back pain and heart disease. One example, Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), is the most common autoimmune disease, affecting 1% of the US population, and almost 68 million people worldwide. Conventional medicine tends to treat arthritis with strong, gut-damaging, immune-suppressing pain medications, temporarily relieving the symptoms of the disease without addressing its root causes. Now, in her groundbreaking new book, Dr. Susan Blum, a leading expert in functional medicine, offers a better approach to healing arthritis permanently.

Dr. Blum’s groundbreaking three-step protocol is designed to address the underlying causes of the condition and heal the body permanently by:

-Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and more
-Healing your gut to heal your joints
-Reducing inflammation without medication

Dr. Blum’s innovative method includes a two-week plan to quickly reduce pain through anti-inflammatory foods and supplements; followed by an intensive gut repair to rid the body of bad bacteria and strengthen the gastrointestinal system for a dramatic improvement in arthritis symptoms and inflammation; and then addresses the emotional issues that contribute to inflammation, and eating a simple, Mediterranean inspired diet to maintain a healthy gut.

Featuring detailed case studies, including Dr. Blum’s own inspiring personal story, Healing Arthritis offers a revolutionary way to heal your gut, repair your immune system, control inflammation, and live a happier, healthier life…arthritis-free.

 "Findings yield new clues to puzzling autoimmune disease"

Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) scientist and former SSF research grant recipient, Kathy Sivils, Ph.D., and her colleagues have identified a strong association between a variant in a gene called OAS1 and susceptibility to Sjögren’s. This variant may provide valuable insight into the genetic basis of Sjögren’s, as well as other autoimmune conditions with similar triggers.

Statement in Support of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA)


The Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation strongly urges the reauthorization of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) to ensure timely approval of new and safe medications by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Millions of patients, including those who suffer from the second most common autoimmune rheumatic disease, Sjögren's, will suffer needlessly if PDUFA is not reauthorized.

Because of the increased number and complexity of drugs entering regulatory review in this modern era, user fees are critical to enable the FDA to keep pace with the approval process. Before the initial passage of PDUFA in 1992, most medicines were approved outside the U.S. due to the lengthy time it took to get drug reviews through the FDA. Following PDUFA, drug approval time was reduced in half and more than 1500 drugs have been authorized by the FDA. PDUFA encourages scientific innovation and makes it possible for our country to bring new treatments to market for the many patients who desperately need them.
