NRAS supports 'Ask for Evidence' campaign to put a stop to misleading claims about science and medicine
The National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society (NRAS) are pleased to support this campaign “Ask for Evidence”. NRAS is often made aware of misguided and confusing information being promoted via various sources e.g. internet, health food stores, newspaper articles, alternative & complementary practitioners regarding rheumatoid arthritis. We encourage people to thoroughly research any information on treatments and therapies before embarking on any deviation from their current treatment and therapy regime. People with long term conditions like rheumatoid arthritis can often be desperate for some immediate “relief” from their painful symptoms which makes them vulnerable to believing claims of “miracle” cures and “drug” free solutions which can often be commercially driven rather than patient centred driven. NRAS would urge people to contact the patient helpline at their rheumatology unit or call NRAS on 0800 298 7650 for clear, trusted and evidenced based information.
