Abstract
Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that is well characterized by persistent synovitis followed by the destruction of the cartilage and bone in joints. Despite many novel therapeutic approaches and scientific studies, no treatment provides a cure for the disease yet.
The Remember/Regeneration Therapy Method (RTM) is a novel holistic medicine approach that targets physiopathological changes in quadruplet body structures and includes various complementary methods such as acupuncture, ozone therapy and phytotherapy, etc. in different combinations which are determined depending on the clinical features of the diseases affecting the patient.
Method: We retrospectively reviewed medical data of 61 patients with RA who were admitted to our clinic between the years of 2012 to 2018. In order to show the efficacy of RTM on RA, previous patient records including pain score, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) were statistically evaluated.
Results: The pain scores of patients who received RTM phytotherapeutics decreased significantly, while ESR and CRP values did not show a significant difference compared to current medical agents.
Conclusion: RTM may provide permanent treatment for RA and many other similar diseases by using different RTM combinations which include various holistic methods with different doses, treatment durations and sessions. For that purpose, further scientific studies are needed.

Key words: Rheumatoid arthritis; RTM; Holistic medicine; Pain score
