According to Wikipedia , rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that may affect many tissues and organs, but principally attacks the joints producing an inflammatory synovitis that often progresses to destruction of the articular cartilage and ankylosis of the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can also produce diffuse inflammation in the lungs, pericardium, pleura, and sclera, and also nodular lesions, most common in subcutaneous tissue under the skin. To modern medicine, the cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, and it is believe that autoimmunity plays a pivotal role in its chronicity and progression.
To ancient oriental medicine, rheumatoid arthritis is due to a kind of sweating disorder where the patient show the inability to produce sweat on their upper and lower limbs . The inability to sweat in response to work and/or body temperature increases is called anhydrosis. Sweating allows the body to regulate its temperature. The sweat leaves your skin through tiny holes called pores. When the pores are too fine or totally close, a patient will suffered from anhydrosis. When sweat is unable to leaves our skin through pores, it will accumulate at our joints. The excessive sweat at our joints will eventually attacks the joints producing an inflammatory synovitis that often progresses to destruction of the articular cartilage and ankylosis of the joints.
To treat rheumatoid arthritis effectively, the doctors need to treat anhydrosis first, modern medicine know how to treat anhydrosis on horses. But without realizing that rheumatoid arthritis is the cumulative effect of anhydrosis, modern medicine is helpless and hopeless in treating rheumatoid arthritis.
Only when anhydrosis is cured, the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis will be effective.
Because they can't sweat and therefore can't cool their bodies, people with severe anhydrosis have trouble working and exercising and can be in serious danger if they attempt strenuous activity in high temperatures. Without being able to sweat, they are at high risk for heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke. In extreme cases, or if these heat-related illnesses are not treated appropriately, coma or death can result.

The following symptoms are observed on the patient of anhydrosis:
- Fine pores on the upper and lower limbs with absent of hair or hair follicle under the skin.
- Excessive body heat
- Excessive heat on the palm or limbs
- No or little perspiration
- Heart palpitation
- Muscular cramps
- 'In severe cases it may also lead to coma, hallucinations or death
This is the discovery that I have made when treating my patient with ancient oriental medicine. The patient is now on recovery path. Good news to mankind who show contempt to ancient knowledge and science.
