RA Community


Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that can affect more than just joints. In some cases people living with Rheumatoid Arthritis also have complications with other body systems, including the skin, eyes, nerve tissue, kidneys, lungs, heart and blood vessels.


Rheumatoid arthritis affects more than 1.3 million people in the United States, and predominantly impacts women. 

Many people living with RA have been living without answers and without proper support for years. We are on a mission to change that! At Aila Health, we believe in empowering Rheumatoid Arthritis patients by giving them better insights about their own health. Aila Health coaches will work with you to develop a holistic wellness plan to combat fatigue, improve energy levels, and manage RA symptoms.
