ARTHRITIS FORMULA TO REDUCE PAIN, SWELLING AND INCREASE MOVEMENT.
The two most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Both are characterized by inflammation and/or pain in a joint or joints. Both diseases are related to nutrition. Osteoarthritis is from a lack of proper nutrition to replace what is lost through the wear, tear and aging and involves deterioration of the cartilage at the ends of the bones.
The other arthritis is Adult and Juvenile Rheumatoid arthritis. They are a type of autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the synovial fluid membranes surrounding the lubricating fluid in the joints (there are at least another 100 lesser known subtype autoimmune arthritic diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis AS). These autoimmune diseases like all autoimmune diseases are due to poor nutrition and exposure to the pollutants and heavy metals that contaminate our air, soil and water. These pollutants cause certain parts of your body, like your joints, to be unrecognizable to your immune system which attacks them (we do not need to wait for reluctant science to figure this out; it is obvious). We can also add toxic vaccinations and medical drugs to our individual toxic load and we are individually compelled to be a part of this autoimmune diseases epidemic. And I am sorry to add that once you have one autoimmune disease it has been proven you will contract another and so on.
There are two answers that I know of personally that will reverse this downward autoimmune disease spiral. One, cleanse the body of these toxins and two, add proper absorbable nutrition to the diet. I know that this sounds simplistic but without establishing these basic fundamental needs of your body you will never be well. The accepted form of medication with drugs will only mask the symptoms while adding still more toxicity as the real cause continues to relentlessly destroy your joints.
I personally experienced arthritis twenty years ago, because when I had cancer I also had arthritis. At that time I was working in the plastering industry with its heavy lifting, repetitive movements, wet environment and I was toxic. The arthritis was in my low back (x-ray and MRI confirmed by Ca), my hands, my shoulders, hips, knees and feet. My hands and feet were the most irritating and bothersome until my back locked-up. It would do that about once a month and when it did I was stuck stooped over. I would leave work and get treatment at a chiropractor's, put on a back brace and return to work; I had responsibilities.
When I cured the cancer (see my bio), that was the end of the arthritis. Curing my arthritis was one of many positive side effects of that Naturopathic treatment, I did not expect it. So, I have personal experience with this devil and I can help you relieve yourself of it if you want.
A lot of things cleared up at that time; headaches, chronic indigestion, skin cancers, loss of energy, depression, anxiety, all went. Some of them were genetic, especially the cancer which runs on the paternal side of my family, depression on my mothers side. Some were due to stress, some were nutritional (my diet was standard USA), some were toxic chemicals and heavy metals in my body. Some was from the lack of a counter exercise to what I was doing. I was in excellent physical condition but I had no counter stretching to relieve the physical stress. And spiritually I was rudderless. So, if you put those kinds of negative stresses on anyone, plus given enough time, they will find all their genetic weaknesses. The obvious answer that Naturopathic medicine proposes, is that you undo all those stresses. That will take the strain off of your genetic weaknesses and there will be no reason for the disease.
The Naturopathic treatment I went through dealt with every one of those areas. Change the food, water and air going into the body. Eliminate any and all toxic chemicals and heavy metals through cleansing and detoxing. Exercise to build up conditioning and stretch out physical/mental stress. Modify your lifestyle to get the stress out of your daily life or eliminate it. Plus get a solid spiritual foundation that connects you to your spiritual roots. If you rigorously and thoroughly deal with all of those areas of your life simultaneously, I do not care what your genetic disease(s) are, they will be eliminated just like mine.
Modern science says that what I just said and what I did is anecdotal and not possible. Well, they say it is anecdotal, but they need to prove through independent unbiased experiments that what I and thousands of other people have experienced is not possible. Until that science is done independently, they cannot say that it is not possible because their statement is unscientific and anecdotal. If I waited for them to do their experiments I would be dead today just as my father and grandfather both prematurely died. The track record of modern medicine is poor at best; they have not cured one single disease in over a half century.
I employed Thompsonian Naturopathic cancer treatments (see Incurables) on myself using their simple effective techniques. The more intently I did what they suggested the more positive results I got. Two of the treatment techniques I will be discussing here are changing the nutrition your body is receiving, and cleansing all the toxic chemicals and heavy metals from your body. I suggest you give these positive changes to your body to get the same results I did.
So that leaves us with supplementing which I am sure many of you are doing right now, but are you really? Isn't it the case that when you have been doing something for years someone comes along and points out that you have been mislead by false information; that what you thought was helping you could actually make your disease worse. Well this happened to me regarding the truth about vitamins and minerals and it may be happening to you. Please read very carefully the important warning below. This information will change your health in a very direct way and also save you a great deal of money. Before you read it let me say in advance that I am sorry about the money you and I wasted on supplements.
Vitamins and Minerals and a Basic Law of Nature
You may not be aware or know that there is a simple basic law of nature and it is a scientific fact. When it comes to the absorption of nutrition for humans or animals, this natural law cannot be broken. And when you understand this law it becomes just simple common sense. The law is that all living things on the surface of the earth depend completely on plants like wheat, lettuce, apples and so on for their nutrition. Without those plants we will starve to death; common sense, right?
So then how do we reconcile this basic law with the fact that over 95% of the supplements on the market are synthetic, closer to dirt or drugs then nutrition?
I was first made aware of this simple reality when I read Dr. Robert Thiel's published paper 'The Truth about Vitamins in Supplements' (see ref.).
We have been confused by convincing ads, stylish labels, or the jargon with high numbers used by the supplement industry, many who are pharmaceutical drug companies. But the fact remains that these supplements cannot be absorbed properly by humans or animals. Even though it says USP; synthetic vitamins can be made from benzene, petroleum esters, irradiated animal fat/cattle brains, acetylene, coal tar derivatives, hydrochloric acid, acetonitrole with ammonia. And worst of all, I just heard recently, sewage sludge (R. Schulze). That's right; some forms of USP Vitamin B12 can be made from sewage as long as it meets USP standards. Obviously these are just the kind of products that can give you arthritis and other diseases. (Ref R. Thiel)
Just the opposite of synthetic vitamins are whole food vitamins. They are made from nutritional yeast, rice bran, carrots, acerola cherries, citrus fruits, cabbage, broccoli and rice. These are the ingredients that your body easily absorbs and uses to fight both major and lesser kinds of arthritis. I think we can agree that this is common sense and these are the kinds of ingredients that can realistically help you battle any disease. (Ref R. Thiel)
OK, I know what you may be thinking and I had the same question, "but I feel better when I take those vitamins". I know you can and so did I, but I also got very sick and I had arthritis. Here are the reasons that you may have felt better when you took a synthetic supplement. One, there are a few ingredients in those supplements that you can actually fully or partially absorb and if you were lacking them, then you will feel better. Another is the placebo affect, 'that you feel better because you expect to'. But the fact still remains that those synthetic vitamins are not food and I do not know what they are, do you? The reason it was done is because it is dirt cheap and no one said they could not do it, like our government who gives them the USP approval even though it is sewage sludge.
What does this mean to you? It means that if your vitamin supplement does not say the words somewhere on the label "Whole Food Vitamins", "Made From Whole Foods" or "Food Vitamins", do not waste your money on it because it is synthetic and you cannot absorb it properly (and by the way Food Based is just another hoax).
All of the ingredients in the suggested formulas below are considered foods by many in the scientific, allopathic and naturopathic healing communities. The enlightened members of these communities also agree that "arthritis is a disease of both the fork and a toxic environment. That by changing what you put in your body and what you clean out you can cure arthritis and all other diseases".

The Loss of
Cartilage and Vitamin C
For the human body to optimally produce this indispensable collagen it must have totally absorbable Vitamin C. Well that seems easy; you just go to any store and buy ascorbic acid. But remember, I said above 'that your body cannot totally absorb and utilize chemicals?' Ascorbic acid is not really the Vitamin C you find in an orange; ascorbic acid is a chemical. (see references)
Read below what the formulator of whole food Vitamin C Complex, Dr. Robert Thiel of Doctors Research says about the scientific studies involved in its creation.
Vitamin C in Foods exists in at least two distinguishable forms with accompanying Food factors. Yet, regular ascorbic acid as well as mineral ascorbates are too incomplete to be properly called vitamin C as they do not contain both forms nor the accompanying Food factors! It is of interest to note that even Albert Szent Gyorgyi, while accepting the Nobel prize for isolating ascorbic acid, told scientists that isolated ascorbic acid did not work by itself--it worked best with the factors that are naturally found with it in foods such as citrus (Food C Complex is a citrus Food!). Citrus contains both natural forms of vitamin C. Thiel R.
VITAMIN C COMPLEX (A Whole Food Vitamin C Complex)
One study found that Food C Complex had proven to have 492 micro moles per gram T.E. (Trolox equivalents) of hydrophilic ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity)'ORAC is essentially a measurement of the ability to quench free radicals (antioxidant ability)'while blueberries (one of the highest ORAC sources) only had 195 micro moles per gram T.E.'thus Food C Complex has 2.52 times the ORAC ability of blueberries. Vitamin C containing food has over 15.6 times the ORAC of isolated ascorbic acid (Food C Complex may be infinitely higher). Actually, there are doubts that isolated ascorbic acid has any significant antioxidant effects in humans. Food C Complex is clearly superior for any interested in ORAC'which should include everyone! Thiel R.
I had just turned sixty and even with all the health enhancing techniques I applied to my life I was losing my edge. I was beginning to feel like my age and it was not fun. So I was looking for natural foods, supplements and herbs with no side effects that could help me, be as comfortable as possible as I passed 60 years of age. Pregnenolone made from the Mexican wild yam turned out to be one of those I found that was very safe and highly effective (see the list of benefits below).
Why are hormones so important in the aging process? Here is what the Merck Manual (medical Bible) says, 'Ultimately, hormones control the function of entire organs, affecting such diverse processes as growth and development, reproduction, and sexual characteristics. Hormones also influence the way the body uses and stores energy and control the volume of fluid and the levels of salts and sugar in the blood. Very small amounts of hormones can trigger very large responses in the body.'
What is Pregnenolone? It is the parent of all the hormones that you have been making all your life. Pregnenolone is called a precursor which means that it is needed to produce something else. That something else is all the hormones a man or woman produces throughout their lifetime.
But at about 30 years of age you begin to make less and less Pregnenolone each year until you reach about 70 years. At about that age you are making 15% of what you made when you were young, and you notice it. Why does the body reduce the amount so quickly? That is not understood completely but part of the reason is said to be a natural decline that takes place with aging. Another reason is that the environment we have created with the toxins and stress we have heaped upon ourselves speeds up this decline of Pregnenolone and the aging process that comes with it.
But doesn't that make it a steroid is a question I asked myself? No, because Pregnenolone by itself has insignificant hormonal effects. It is the basic material from which your body produces hormones not the finished product. So it does not have those side effects we hear about that occur with steroid drugs.
Pregnenolone is a little like the flour used by a baker; put some flour in your mouth and it is not real tasty. But give it to a baker who combines it with other ingredients and you have bread, pastries, pancakes etc. The baker like your hormone system is only going to use the amount of flour (Pregnenolone) called for in the recipe. This is why pregnenolone has proven to be so safe to use.
Pregnenolone has been tested by science since the 1940's and here are some of the improvements in physical and mental health that science found. Improved skin tone and health, reduction of body fat and increased lean body mass (muscle tissue), increased strength and endurance, more energy, a reduction or elimination of inflammation, elimination of joint pain, improved wound healing, improved vision, enhanced functioning of the immune, metabolic and nervous systems. Also improvements in Mental Health like stress tolerance, mental cognition, better sleep patterns, improved mental outlook, mood and memory. An increase in male hormones like testosterone and accompanying physical well being and improved sexual functioning. Improved female reproductive cycle, progesterone, enhanced sexual enjoyment or libido and much more.
Why didn't science tell the world what they had found? Well at just about the time they discovered Pregnenolone they also discovered the synthetic steroid drugs like cortisone. These steroids are synthetic and even though they have harsh side effects they work fast and they could be patented, so sadly that was the choice they made. Pregnenolone on the other hand was natural made from the wild yam root, and they could not patent it. So Pregnenolone was set aside and forgotten except for a few people who saw its value.
Pregnenolone has been given orally to humans at doses as high as 500 mg/day for as long as 30 weeks without evidence of adverse effects. In one human study, eight people received 50 to 150 milligrams per day by intramuscular injection for 75 days, with no reported side effects. Dr. Eugene Roberts gave 20 Alzheimers patients 525 mg/day for three months with no toxicity. During rheumatoid arthritis experiments with pregnenolone, Dr. H. Freeman and colleagues gave 500 mg pregnenolone/day for up to 30 weeks, with no toxicity. And Drs. Pincus and Hoagland, two of the pioneer researchers on pregnenolone use by humans in the 1940s, found no toxic reactions with pregnenolone used by hundreds of men and women at dosages of 100 mg/day for four months.
From everything I have read the best time to take Pregnenolone is in the morning. The reason being that it is fat-soluble and follows the circadian cycle in 5-Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) of high in the morning and dropping by the late afternoon.
