Arthritis Formula to Reduce Pain, Swelling and Increase Movement

Published by at 1:17 pm under Diet,Health,Herbs,Supplements

The 2 most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Both are characterized by an 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 and tear of aging and involves deterioration of the cartilage at the ends of the bones.

Rheumatoid, adult and juvenile arthritis is a type of autoimmune disease that attacks the synovial fluid membranes surrounding the lubricating fluid in the joints. This autoimmune disease like all autoimmune diseases is due to poor nutrition and pollutants that cause your immune system to not recognize and so attack you. Both arthritic diseases are due to the poor American food supply, low in nutrition that contains toxic and chemical pollutants. Other forms of arthritis such as gout, ankylosing spondylitis (AS), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) also respond positively to proper, absorbable nutrition.

Getting the proper nutrition is not easy to do in America where your average grocery store is a nutritional disaster; loaded with refined garbage and irradiated produce; see my article “America Is Number One, The Fattest Industrialized Country In The World, With 74% Of Our People Overweight And 25% Obese”. The grocery industry worries more about shelf life then what happens to you when you eat their stuff.

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 not only are you wrong but there is a much better way to do it? Well this happened to me regarding vitamins and minerals and I am just about to do the same thing for you. Please read very carefully the important warning note below. It 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 that I am sorry about the money you and I wasted on supplements.

Very Important Warning Note:
You may not be aware or know that there is a basic law of nature and it is a scientific fact. When it comes to the absorption of nutrition for humans or animals this law cannot be broken. All living things on the surface of the earth depend completely on plants like wheat, lettuce, apples and so on for our nutrition. Now from what you have just read; read the next two paragraphs and see what you think

Americans do not know that 95% of vitamins on the market are synthetic and are closer to drugs then nutrition and 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, and acetonitrole with ammonia. These are just the kind of products that can give you arthritis and other diseases.

Whole food vitamins 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 these are the kinds of ingredients that can realistically help you battle arthritis.

OK, I know what you may be thinking right now, “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. There are some reasons for that, one is that there are a few things in those supplements that you can actually absorb and if you were lacking them, then the addition of those will make you feel better. Another is the placebo affect, that you will feel better because you expect to. But the fact is 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 cheap and no one said they could not do it.

What does that mean to you? It means 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 (for more information see my article “The Truth About Vitamins“).

Note: All of the ingredients in these suggested formulas below are considered foods by the scientific, allopathic and naturopathic healing communities.  The enlightened members of these communities also agree that “arthritis is a disease of the fork and by changing what you put in your body you can cure arthritis and all other diseases”.

ARTHRITIS AND WHOLE FOOD VITAMINS:

Oxidation can cause arthritis and rheumatism through toxins carried into our bodies via the air, water and the food we eat.  These free radicals attack the weakest part of the body causing tissue damage.  Anti-oxidant vitamins like A, C, and E, can attract these free radicals and neutralize them.

B STRESS FORMULA (all Vitamins in this Formula should be from Whole Foods)

- Benefits: Enhances the health of the nerves, eyes, skin, mouth, liver, and muscle tone in the gastrointestinal tract.  B vitamins can help with stress and depression.  Some Alzheimer patients were found to have a vitamin B deficiency.

CALCIUM COMPLEX (should be from a Whole Food Calcium)

- Take the first dose with your oil and juice in the morning, second dose at lunch, third dose with dinner, fourth dose before bedtime with oil and orange juice.  With each dose take a minimum of 100 milligrams of vitamin C, this will aid in absorption.

- The magnesium makes calcium soluble in the body so it will not form stones or
deposits in the kidneys, joints or muscles.

MAGNESIUM COMPLEX (This should be from a Whole Food Magnesium)

- Everyone thinks that calcium is the mineral that is lacking in the American diet;

- actually it is magnesium.  Without magnesium, calcium cannot even be absorbed into your body; unabsorbed calcium is toxic and can help cause arthritis.  Magnesium is responsible for 300 different biochemical reactions necessary for our body to properly function.

VITAMIN C COMPLEX (This should be from a Whole Food Vitamin C Complex)

- Essential for the manufacture of collagen used by the body to manufacture the the organic matrix of the bone (reinforces the bones).

- Benefits: Strengthens all connective tissue, used in wound healing, used by all individual cells to clean themselves, anti-oxidant, etc.

SELENIUM E COMPLEX (This should be from a Whole Food Selenium E Complex)

- 100% Food complex nutrient with extremely important antioxidant properties.
Benefits: Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant, prevents premature aging, can extend your prime of life by 15 to 20 years, prevents cardiovascular problems from developing, and increases your energy and endurance.

PEANUT OIL and OLIVE OIL (cold pressed only)

- 1 Tablespoon of each in juice in the morning before breakfast, use my Morning Drink formula or add it to orange, grapefruit, apple or cranberry juice.

- Use the peanut oil as a massage oil and rub into the affected area daily, the excess can be wiped off with a tissue before dressing (do not wash off excess).

- Benefits of using these two oils.  They will improve your arthritis or rheumatism and also raise your vitality, improve your complexion, make your hair shine, maintain your body’s proper water balance, and improve sexual performance.

OMEGA 3/ EPA/ DHA
COD LIVER OIL
I recommend you use a product that has undergone molecular distillation
which removes virtually all traces of mercury, PCBs, PDEs, and dioxin.

- Benefits the synovial membrane where a fluid is made that lubricates joints and keeps cartilages elastic, teeth/gold teeth and gums in good shape, also used by the body for vision at night and helps ease pain of arthritis.

-     1 tablespoon of cod liver oil in a small glass of orange juice just before you go to bed each night.

- Cod liver oil assists in the proper absorption, assimilation and metabolism of calcium in your body.

ALFALFA

- Recent research reveals that there is a powerful substance in alfalfa that scientists call an anti-stiffness factor.  Alfalfa supplements from seed are the most powerful.

- 3,000 milligrams with each meal for a total of 12,000 milligrams daily.

- When the pain, swelling and stiffness disappear reduce to 2,000 milligrams with
each meal.

- Alfalfa is the basis for liquid Chlorophyll, with a balance of chemical and mineral constituents almost identical to human hemoglobin.

- Benefits of taking alfalfa: rich source of B-12, ounce for ounce alfalfa contains three times the calcium of milk, contains a natural fluoride that hardens the bone and teeth, and is also a blood purifier.

IMPORTANT NOTE HERE, ARTHRITIS AND CAYENNE:
Cayenne
is the only known herb or medication to relieve the pain and reverse the disease of arthritis.  The scientific community has done over thirteen hundred studies and the majority confirmed that cayenne and capsaicin relieves arthritic symptoms and improves joint flexibility.  You can now find creams, liniments, and plasters in health food and drug stores that contain the key ingredient of cayenne, “capsicum”.

Deep Heat Ointment with Capsicum:
How I have used the “Deep Heat Ointment” for arthritis:
I was mixing heavy materials and building scaffold on houses and high-rise apartment buildings, very heavy work. I was 45 and the working environment was wet or damp most of the time. The arthritis developed in my feet, ankles, knees, hips, elbows, shoulders, neck and low back.

I have applied the ointment on the area and rubbed it in 4 times a day.  Another way I have used the ointment is to put a liberal amount on the area, cover it with a sheet of plastic wrap than wrap it with a sports wrap type elastic bandage.  For my elbow or knee, I used a sports support over the plastic wrap for the appropriate area.  Treating my back, I used a back support wrap to hold the plastic wrap in place.  I felt heat in the area, if the cream seemed too hot I diluted it with a little cold cream.  If it is not hot enough I used a stronger cream.  Wash off the cream with soap and water one half hour before you shower or take a bath.

You can make the ointment stronger by adding more capsicum powder to it yourself.  You can find this powder in the product section under “bulk herbs”.  They are listed under “Cayenne” I would choose “Cayenne 180 HU or more (Heat Units)” to begin with.  Go easy; add a very small amount to begin with, as you learn how to use it, become more aggressive. Do not use any kind of cool or cold cayenne they will not work.

BOWEL CLEANSING AND DETOXING FOR ARTHRITIS
Bowel cleansing and detoxing for arthritis, why would you want to do that? One of the causes of inflammation is having toxins and pollutants in the area of the irritated joint. These toxins and pollutants slow down the healing in osteoarthritis and encourage the attack on the joint by your immune system in rheumatoid arthritis.But arthritis in your hand seems like a long way from your bowel why cleanse out the bowel? It is simple, every waste product, toxin and pollutant is moving toward your bowel. If that bowel is not running the way it should things began to slow down and even back up. See my article “The Truth About Constipation” and get the right facts about the bowel and what your bowel habits should be, plus detailed information on how to cleanse and detox.

A bowel cleanse and detox is simple to do, you control it, it cannot hurt you. It is done slowly and incrementally so you do not need to take time off from work. You may find that once you experience what a clean body feels like that you would never again let your colon become toxic.

SUGGESTED COLON CLEANSE HERBS

Below are the herbs I suggest you look for in a cleanse formula (they should all be wild crafted or organic for safety) plus their benefits and historical safety are listed.

Aloe Leaf
One, of the oldest known healing herbs. Has a gentle laxative effect while encouraging the proliferation of friendly bowel bacteria.

Barberry Root

First used by North American Indian tribes and the Egyptians. It is known for its ability to treat liver related constipation while increasing bowel function as it strengthens the body.

Cascara Sagrada aged bark
Another American Indian herb; the Spanish named it “sacred bark”. A remedy for constipation and treatment of hemorrhoids; encourages peristalsis, is not known to be habit forming. Adopted by many pharmaceutical companies because it is safe to use.

Garlic bulb
Parasiticide and antibiotic while leaving safe friendly bacteria. Dr Paavo Airola called garlic “King of the Vegetable Kingdom” also designated a Super Food because of its potent healing properties.

Senna leaf
Effective at cleaning the colon is also an efficient vemifuge (kills parasites). Stimulates intestinal peristalsis.  One of the few herbs approved by the FDA for over-the-counter use and may be one of the most widely used herbal medicines in the United States

Turkey Rhubarb root
A gentle laxative in combinations has a tonic effect, also blood builder and cleanser. Has a cleansing action upon the gut, removing debris and then its astringent with antiseptic properties. This herb has over 2000 years of continuous use in Asia, Europe and Middle East. 

Black Walnut hull
Both American Indian and European herbalists used this herb as nutritional aid for the digestive system and a moderate laxative. This herb also has strong antifungal, antiparasitic and antiseptic properties.

Clove bud
The ancient Chinese, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all prized and used cloves for centuries. Clove is considered a warming herb that improves the assimilation and digestion of foods and also reduces the sensation of bloating and gas pressure within the digestive system. 

Fennel seed
Helps stop nausea, hiccups, belching and intestinal gas by improving digestion. Reduces mucus in intestinal tract and assists in the breakup of uric acid in tissues, helps digest protein and protein waste products.

Ginger root
Many herbalists consider ginger to be one of the top 10 herbs of all for its ability to act quickly and safely. It has a robust ability to stop dizziness, nausea and vomiting while also relieving griping and cramping in abdominal and intestinal area.

Wormwood leaf
Used for all complaints of the digestive system; it will stimulate appetite, calm indigestion, relieve constipation, plus expel excess gas from the stomach and intestines.

Why so many herbs? Each one of the 11 cleansing herbs has different benefits for the bowel so in very small incremental amounts your bowel is cleansed gently and gradually; no need to take off work.

SUGGESTED COLON DETOX HERBS
This cleansing soothing formula is to be used periodically in conjunction with the Colon Cleanse Formula. It acts as a strong purifier and intestinal vacuum, helping to draw out old fecal matter from the walls of your colon and out of any bowel pockets. Colon Detox aids in the removal of poisons, toxins, parasites, and heavy metals. Also use to stop diarrhea or to counteract food poisoning. These herbs should be organic or wild crafted for safety, see my article “The Truth About Constipation” for details about Colon Detox.

Psyllium seed, Psyllium husk (do not use for more then 5 days consecutively can strip cilia from small intestine)
Found in many over-the-counter laxatives, the word in Greek means flea relating to its size.  Psyllium is a hydrophilic (absorbs water), mucilaginous, bulking agent that can increase the volume of the intestinal contents.

Psyllium adds bulk to the stool, absorbs toxins, soothes inflamed tissues, removes putrefaction, and promotes growth of friendly bacteria.  This action can help reduce diverticulosis and diverticulitis.

Used properly Psyllium can stop loose bowels or prevent constipation.  Because Psyllium absorbs water (hydrophilic absorbs 8 to14 times its weight in water) it can help stop loose bowels.  Psyllium’s scrubbing action stimulates the bowel’s peristaltic action thus helps prevent constipation.

Bentonite clay
The molecules in Bentonite clay are negatively charged so as it moves through the intestinal tract it attracts toxic particles which are positively charged. So, like a magnet the Bentonite draws the toxic molecule which is then absorbed into the clay. In this way, your body can expel the toxin-filled clay in a normal bowel movement. Bentonite is also recommended for those who were exposed to radiation or who have had radiation treatments. Helps maintain healthy friendly bacterial balance in the digestive system and promotes liver detoxification and boosts your immune system.

Flax seed
In its whole form the flax seeds include fibers, both soluble and insoluble that are so vital to enhancing digestive health. It will help regulate bowel movements, and increase their frequency, and prevent or treat bowel irregularities and constipation. Taken with a significant amount of water, flax expands 20 times in volume. The water will change to a smooth consistency. That seed and smooth water is great for a toxic colon, it lubricates and absorbs toxins seamlessly. Flax seed also contains lignans that have anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-cancer properties.

Apple fruit Pectin
Has a highly absorptive quality that draws numerous harmful substances out of your intestines, especially heavy metals like mercury and lead. It even draws carcinogenic radioactive materials like strontium 90 (it was used at Chernobyl to draw radioactive particles from the people there).

Slippery Elm inner bark
Used to cleanse, purify and detoxify the colon, bowel, and intestines.  Soothing and strengthening the entire intestinal tract. Native Americans used Slippery Elm in healing salves for wounds, boils, ulcers, burns, and skin inflammation. 

Marshmallow root
Hypocrites used it as a wound healer.  Its generic name Althaea comes from the Greek Altho to heal and make “soft” because of its special softening and healing qualities.   It is anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant making it a soothing treatment for the gastrointestinal tract. Great detoxer, because of high content of mucilage, starch and other factors allows it to combine with and eliminate toxins, aiding the body to detox. 

Fennel seed
Helps in the elimination of nausea, hiccups, belching and intestinal gas by improving digestion. Reduces mucus in intestinal tract and assists in the breakup of uric acid in tissues, helps digest protein and protein waste products.

    I dun understand why do we need to register before making comments? I’m tired of creating accounts all over the net. It should be made seamless for the reader to add comments without the hassle of registration. An email addresss is suffice.

    Do you have any suggestions for cayenne ointment that could be purchased at the health food store? I have heard cayenne twice this week – maybe I need to listen.

  10. Paul Blake NDon 22 Mar 2009 at 8:44 pm

    Hi Cathy,
    I do not have a product name I can recommend other then my own of course “Deep Heat Ointment” but here is a way to see if a product is good. Put a liberal amount on an affected area, cover it with saran wrap and a dressing to hold it in place. You should feel some warmth in the area fairly soon, that is the cayenne working and that is what you should feel for at least 4 hours. If you do not feel that take it back for a refund. Cathy, you are very perceptive to listen to those messages; so many people do not listen.

    Thanks
    Paul
