To Beat Arthritis, Start by Detoxifying Your Body

There are a few simple lifestyle changes you can make that will help you get over arthritis without resorting to drugs or surgery. Perhaps the most important is diet. If you're unwilling to undertake a complete fast, or don't have the time or money to do so under medical supervision (do NOT attempt a long fast on your own!), you can do a modified version of a fast for 5 to 10 days. There are many versions of this detoxification strategy. Basically, they involve taking a mixture of pure spring water, lemon juice and honey or maple syrup. To learn more, do a search on "honey lemon water detoxification," or (much better) get Margie Garrison's groundbreaking book on getting rid of arthritis naturally, entitled "I Cured My Arthritis You Can Too." CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION It's important to note that you'll most likely have intermittent periods of feeling great that are followed by intermittent periods of feeling lousy when you go through a detoxification program. Keep in mind that this is part of the detoxification process and is quite normal. The Following Week After the Fast, or Juice Fast The week following the fast or juice fast, eat only fresh fruits and vegetables. Most of this should be raw, but lightly steamed vegetables are okay (try to eat 3/4 of your fruits and vegetables raw). You should also add some vitamins (more on that shortly). The following week, add small amounts of lean protein, like fish, poultry, eggs, and nuts. Stay away from beef until you have a chance to see whether beef brings back an onset of your arthritis. For many people, beef causes arthritis. Other proteins can also cause arthritis. For example, pasteurized dairy products are often responsible. What you have to do is test different proteins to see. Keep a food diary and record how you feel after a meal. Pay close attention and notice any adverse symptoms. Another common food to beware of is flour. This means many types of bread will be off limits. Again, you'll have to play detective to find out. In short, you want to subsist on a diet of fresh fruits and vegetables and eat these raw or steamed (raw is best). You'll also want complement this diet with clean protein sources that don't cause your arthritis to flare up. For more information about diet, refer to the book, I Cured My Arthritis You Can Too. To illustrate the power a proper diet plays in getting rid of arthritis, consider this experiment done at the University of California at Berkeley, conducted by Dr. Francis Pottinger. Dr. Pottinger fed one group of cats cooked meat and cooked milk. The result? The cats developed arthritis and died. The more the meat and milk were cooked, the quicker they developed arthritis. Another control group of cats was fed raw food only. The result? None of them developed arthritis. Then this group was fed cooked meat and milk. The result - they developed arthritis.

What is Arthritis?

The word arthritis comes from the Greek word "arthron," which means joint inflammatory disease.  However, it is not only joints that are affected, but connective tissue throughout your body. 
In some cases, muscles and the soft tissues of certain organs can also be stricken.
Like many diseases, arthritis is a catchall name that is given to a host of other ailments.   All have common symptoms of aches and pains in the joints and connective tissue throughout the body.
While how arthritis inflammation starts is poorly understood, there are several causes that are generally accepted.
They include:
  • Injury
  • Infection
  • Autoimmune diseases (the body produces antibodies against itself)
  • Calcium deficiency
  • Vitamin D deficiency
Inflammation itself causes further joint and tissue damage, making normal movement difficult. The symptoms and some of the signs of arthritis can be classified under one of the most five common kinds.
The most common form is called degenerative, or osteoarthritis.  The cause of the disease is associated with malabsorbtion of calcium and vitamin D.
Although it is more common in older people, young people - even children -are not immune to it.
The most serious forms of arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis and a disease closely related to rheumatoid arthritis, but affecting the organs, systemic lupus erythematosus.
These two forms of arthritis can be debilitating.  Conventional treatments require damaging drugs like cortisone.
Another form of arthritis is gout, which is a purely nutritional disease.  It affects genetically predisposed individuals who produce excessive amounts of uric acid.  Crystals of the sodium salt of this uric acid deposit themselves in the joints and in tissue in the kidneys.
The simplest way to prevent gout attacks is to limit foods that contain purine, such as:
  • Sardines
  • Bouillon
  • Meat extracts
  • Organ meats
  • Anchovies
  • Asparagus
  • Spinach
  • Artichokes
  • Peas
  • Beans
  • Alcohol
Another type of arthritis is ankylosing spondylitis. While rare, it affects men more than women.  Symptoms not only include muscle stiffness, but joints of the spine.
When all of the joints of the spine are affected, a humpback might result. Typical treatments include aspirin and cortisone.
According to John R.J. Sorneson, in "The Journal of International Academy of Metabology, Volume 1, No. 2, page 7, (published in 1978), ankylosing spondylitis and other arthritis diseases have been cured by a special chelate copper preparation.
This and other forms of arthritis also respond quite well to nutritional therapy. But before you change your diet, you should clean out your system.

Exercise relieves the pain of arthritis

If you have arthritis you know how hard it is to get up after sitting for any period of time.   You’re so toxic and tense that you hurt to move.
Try some simple exercises in your chair.  
  1. Swing your arms around in circles.
  2. Lift up one leg at a time.  
  3. Turn your body as far to the right as you can and then to the left.  
  4. While sitting tighten your buttocks and lift your body up from the chair.  You won’t lift it far if at all but you will feel the body lift.
Start with just doing these simple exercises three or four times each for a few minutes and working yourself up to 10 times three or four times a day.  If you like to walk start slow.  If it is only 10 feet, walk 10 feet.  Everyday increase it another 5 feet.
You will be amazed how better you will feel.
Swimming or exercising in water is marvelous.  In the water your body is weightless.  You do not have to swim you can just walk back and forth or do the above exercises.  Try doing this at least 20 minutes three times a week.
The trick to exercising and staying with it is to do something you enjoy and with a friend or a group when possible, it's more fun and you can visit while doing your exercises.  It is better than meeting in a restaurant, sitting and eating bad foods.
Always ask your doctor before starting an exercise program of any kind.  
You are the only one that can change your life.   Do you want to shuffle along or do you want to strut along whistling?  The choice is yours.

Now about the foods you eat

When you have arthritis it is more important that you have a diet made up of 75% raw and 25% cooked foods.  
Eating raw fruits takes less energy to digest than eating cooked foods therefore taking less energy to clean out the toxic waste in your body.  The less toxic waste you have in your body the less your arthritis will hurt.  
We are the only species that eats cooked foods and we are the only species that suffer with so many degenerative diseases.
Arthritis is one of the main degenerative diseases.  Over 90 Million people in the United States have arthritis.

Let’s take a look at the mental attitude part of this

Take a look at your attitude.... What has positive and negative affects on your attitude?  You will make a great difference in the way you feel mentally and physically by enhancing on the positive and removing the negative influences in your life.
Every thought you have your body will reacts to that thought.
Positive thoughts and feelings will create positive results, while negative thoughts and feeling will create negative results.
So if you are a calm and positive person your health will be better than a person who is anxious and negative.
To make yourself more serene, stand tall, throw your shoulders back, lift up your head and smile.   Try it.  Don’t you feel better?
Now stand up and look down, slump your shoulders and frown.  Now how do you feel?   Did you feel the difference?   
Just think back to your childhood. When you were praised how did you look and feel? When you were scolded how did you look and feel?
When your body is tense or you feel unhappy or have negative thoughts your body will react and your arthritis will hurt more than when you are calm, happy and have positive thoughts.  
Be aware of your mental attitude and note how different situations have an effect your arthritis.   Then you can take charge and change the affects they have on your arthritis.  Out with the Bad and in with the Good!!!
You are not responsible for what others do or say, you are only responsible for how you react to what others do or say.

Arthritis: Can you do something about it?

The famous painter Auguste Renoir suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and was chained to a chair. In old age he weighed just 47 kg. He had no healthy joint, they all collapsed... but Renoir at least lived to see his old age.
I referr to arthritis which usually affects the elferly - osteoarthritis. As a person grows older (or due to injury) joints can wear out or break down. This leads to pain, stiffness and swelling - especially in spine, hip and knee joints, fingers etc.

Doctors usually say that arthritis can not be cured, but one can do much to alleviate bad condition.
So, what one can do about it? Which advice would be helpful?
