[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Hello,

I found out 2 years ago that I have rheumatoid arthritis. I've seen doctor after doctor trying to find a cure to the pain that I was enduring. They put me on several different medicines starting with Naproxy Sodium and going all the way up to Cyclophosomide (I probably spelled that one wrong.) which is a chemotherapy drug with horrible side effects and about the worse you can get. My next step if this treatment didn't work was bone marrow replacement therapy, which scared me to death. Anyway, I have been sick for a very long time. Lethargic, unable to fight off infections, getting them over and over again as soon as I stop taking precription antibiotics for them, unable to stay motivated, memory loss, etc. I wanted to found a natural cure after I started reading some articles on the internet. They told me that not only was Prednisone and Cyclophosomide bad for you, but that they were slowly killing me. They are toxic over a long period of time and even though they were taking care of my arthritis pain, I was constantly sick, tired, and not really even wanting to be on this planet anymore because my quality of life was so poor. I couldn't do anything, not even shopping at the grocery store without becoming so incredibly tired and lethargic afterwards that I had to go home and go to bed. In fact most of the past 2 years of my life has been spent in bed, missing family functions and kid time. I started looking for natural cures for arthritis and came across an article about garlic, not just garlic, but the allicin found in garlic. One of the websites that I found told me to take a garlic clove, which you should be able to buy at any grocery store, chop it up and eat it quickly, along with ginger in some milk. You have to eat it quickly and raw. If you keep it out in the air too long, the allicin will evaporate. You only have a few minutes and the allicin is what you are wanting, not the garlic. The ginger helps the inflammation of the bones and joints because it has a warming effect, and the garlic helps to cure the disease. It doesn't just work on arthritis, but they are claiming, cancer, aids, sinus infections, sore throats, staff and strep, plus many others. I've been doing this for about 3 days now. I've been off of cyclophosomide for over a week and I'm feeling better than what I have felt in about 2 years. When I first started taking the garlic, about 2 days ago, I had a severe sinus infection that wouldn't leave. I've had it off and on for about 4 straight weeks now. Garlic is also supposed to help fight asthma and allergies which I also have. None of those have been bothering me since I took the garlic. Just make sure that you have plenty of cool milk or some other cool liquid nearby because when you eat it raw, it's very hot! The only side effects that I've noticed is of course, garlic breath, and a little heart burn. Everything else this website promised has worked and I'm feeling energetic again, but also pain free. I found out later that the cyclophosomide that I was taking is also a carcinogenic, meaning that it will eventually give me cancer. I understand that doctors are trying to help you and release you from your pain, but to give you something that will take the pain away, but kill you in the process just doesn't seem right to me.

When taking the garlic, you need 1 clove. What I've been doing is chopping it up into small pieces, and then eating the pieces and grinding them up further with my teeth. Once again, I STRESS. It's very hot, so make sure you have something to drink that's COLD nearby. I'd really love to hear from anyone else to see if you have the same results I did.

"If you keep it out in the air too long, the allicin will evaporate. You only have a few minutes and the allicin is what you are wanting, not the garlic."

Just wanted to note that the above part is untrue. It is actually best to let chopped or minced garlic sit for 10 minutes or so before eating or cooking with it. Garlic does not actually contain allicin as such - it is formed when the garlic is cut or crushed and it takes time to maximize. Google for many references to this. Here's just one (this one recommends 5-10 minutes sit time; others say 10 minutes minimum):

Hi- I have RA, sudden onset last May. Have been doing a food journal and found I am sensitive to yeast, onions, garlic, citrus, night shades, eggs, MSM, MSG and glutten. Just because someone says to try something they do no know your sensitivities. I use a pendalum and also a chiropractor that does A/K muscle testing to check for foods and supplements. I am doing the hydrogen peroxide therapy( at 23 drops today) and just started the oil pulling with sesame oil and 30 mg of minocycline 3 days a week. Down from 15 mg of prednisone to 6 and 5 aleve to 3 in a month. Also seeing a homeopathic Dr, vita mix juices and walking/yoga and learning meditation. The food journal works. Write down reactions to foods 3 times a day. I started with brown rice and vegie juice. Still should get off cheese but time will improve my will power. Good luck- RA is mean- be kind to yourself- I am learning every day- god bless- molly

I have Rheumatorid Arhritis, very nasty disease. My doctor finally ( after hammering him) tested me for bacteria called microplasms and others and I tested positive. Many doctors believe autoimmune problems come from parasites. I found a site called Roadback foundation, it run by volunteers who have autoimmune disease, like this site has a great group of people. Its based on using antibiotics for many auto immune problems, rather then mainstream drugs, i have been on antibiotic for 2 yrs and doing very well. I hope to be in remission within 2 years. I am going to start oil pulling tomorrow I'll let you know how this works out. I wish everyone here a great week.

Hi Dotsdaughter2, Quite honestly, this sounds like a terrible idea. Yes, rheumatoid arthritis is a nasty disease but using antibiotics, let alone for two years, is only going to wreak havoc throughout your whole body. Antibiotics already ravage the system by depleting it of probiotics and good bacterias which the body needs but imagine what it has done in two years! And then to top it off, another two years of antibiotics? I would highly reconsider this path.

There are plenty of other avenues you can take to rid yourself of parasites and bacteria that would not be destructive the way antibiotics can be. Here is the section on parasite remedies:

http://earthclinic.com/cures/parasites.html

Here is the section on remedies for mycoplasma but, begin by reading what Ted has to say about antibiotics and mycoplasma under Ted's remedies in this section:

http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/mycoplasma_fermentans.html

Also, begin helping your body restore its gut flora by getting probiotics back into it. Your body most likely is dealing with systemic candida. Work to start clearing the candida and getting kefir, fermented veggies, yogurt with varied good bacterias in it, into your body. Anyway, I wish you the best, Lisa

hi, i suffer from ra in my hands (never diagnosed) going on 6 months. i've been trying to follow what ted said to do, i've been taking 2 tbsp lemon juice and 1/4 tsp of baking soda twice a day and taking 500mg of magnesium citrate (i cut back to about 375mg was getting headaches from it), 1000iu of d3, haven't got the vit k2 yet. i've been hesitant on ingesting the borax (20 mule team). it's been a couple of weeks and no relief.

i just found on this site they now have boron borax pellets 30c. i would like to take these instead, but not sure how many pellets i need to take a day, and should i just dissolve in my mouth or take it like the borax in a liter of water and if so how many pellets in the water???? anybody out there that takes these pellets?

also, i've eliminated alcohol, salt sugar, dairy, nightshade vegetable from my diet, i only eat whole grains, salmon, tofu and veggies, still no relief. any ideas?

Hi Suzie, Very important is to get some proteolitc enzymes from Dr William Wongs website, the enzymes will desolve the junk in your joints. Dr Wong has got a lot of info on his website. Just type in Dr William Wong.

Hi Suzie, That's an awful lot of lemon juice for that tiny amount of baking soda. I also have RA, and have benefitted much from following Bangkok Ted's recommendation to add more Baking Soda until the lemon juice stops fizzing from it. It also may take a few weeks to kick in, with me it took ~3 weeks, then everything got noticeably better almost overnight.

I also do not like the taste of A&H baking soda, but B R Mill Non-aluminum baking soda doesn't have that taste, so I find it much easier to drink.

I have taken the wong stuff before. NO offense intended to the previous well-meaning poster, but it caused me some serious trouble and I will never, ever take it again. I recommend you save the megabux it costs, and buy a supplement which does not contain the superfluous fillers or excipients. I have had good results from _____ "Super Enzymes" in *capsules*, NOT in the tablets, it is available both ways. They cost ~$10.

If you search through the many Rheumatoid Arthritis Cures posts on Earthclinic listed under "Ailments", pay special attention to anything posted by Bangkok Ted, IMO it should help you much. His recommendations have consistently worked for me.

I use Hydrangea Root tea to dissolve joint calcifications from RA. You can add some fresh-squeezed lemon juice and raw honey, or Tart Cherry concentrate (Health food store or Vitacost) to dress up the taste if you want to.

Swedish Bitters also does me a lot of good. This can also be used in a poultice on swollen joints. If you do that, rubbing on some Coconut or Castor oil under the Bitters poultice will keep it from itching your skin.

I hope this helps,

Linda

Hi Suzie, Yes I know exactly where to get it, but EC probably won't allow me to post it (IMO for good reason, we'd all be overrun with marketing spam :-)), so if you do a web search for 'hydrangea root herb' that ought to answer you with some good sources.

I want to repeat this and stress it most importantly- *I have to be very careful to avoid fillers and excipients in whatever I take! * Including in capsule supplements (read the *fine print* on the bottle before purchasing)! Especially Calcium Carbonate (powdered limestone), which sets me on fire everywhere, and then took several months to get the stuff out of my body.. There is only one brand of capsuled enzymes I know of which worked for me (from my post above, the brand name was removed), and those helped *a lot*.

When I got a dose of Calcium Carbonate, the thing that helped the most to get rid of it was Hydrangea Root Tea during the daytime, and ~3/4 to 1 tablespoon of ACV (organic, with the Mother), *diluted into 8 oz of water* and drunk at bedtime on the way to bed.

If you still cannot locate Hydrangea Root, then the Swedish Bitters recommended in the excellent work of the famous Herbalist Maria Treben are also reported to dissolve joint calcifications over time. The Hydrangea Root was much faster than this, for me.

I hope this helps,

Linda

After many tries with various diets I have been on paleo for immune for 4 months and am off meds for my Rheumatoid arthritis. I still find some extra foods flare me like tree nuts and berries except blueberries. Also sweet potatoes, onions and garlic can cause issues. Sugar unless natural by fruit, red fruits and Citrus as well. I was in a wheel chair in 2011 and now lead a normal life except when I eat the wrong foods two days in a row. Hope this helps.

Hi Imara, congratulations, that's great. Going gluten-free helped me with arthritis.

She is not cured but it seems it takes longer before she has to take the cortisone (almost two months). But she has problems with her emotions, her life is not easy. She is using LDN too.

Keep doing natural solutions research and realize the drugs are NOT working, so try something else. DRUGS don't heal - your body heals itself. Strengthen your immune system in every way you can .... quit eating foods that harm your body and give the natural alternatives more time. If you have given the drugs years (and they still aren't working) why would you expect a natural solution to work in 2 weeks ???? Read, read, read .... and read some more. Educate yourself on the CAUSES of the problem so you can get to a solution. Your body isn't hurting because it's lacking the Rx, it's hurting because it is out of balance. Find the balance and you won't be hurting. It's up to YOU, not the Rx companies to heal your own body. This site has some great solutions - at the very least these natural solutions are not TOXIC like the Rx are ...

You do need to alkaline your blood. The best way to do this is with baking soda: 1 tbl mixed with molasses (unsulfured). Molasses is a carrier for the baking soda. Very important to mix the two, also add a little good water drink in am then do not eat for two hours. With your night time meal, take a potassium supplement 99mg. Do this for 10days, then stop for about a month unless pain comes back sooner. Follow these directions as close as possible. Normally you will start feeling pain relief within two days. Help the situation by watching your diet. The really cool thing about this remedy is that it will cost you around 15 dollars at your local health food store.

RA, is caused mostly by a few things; root canal teeth, consumption of nightshades, zoonotic infections (insect vectored infections ( best test for this in the USA, spirostat (triple shot babesia add on test). Triple means three different blood specimens. Most docs are doing finger, big toe stick and venous blood draw. They may not be doing business in your country yet, but you could go to their site and email the question.. Zoonotic infections include not only "Lyme disease" but 50 or 60 other spirochettes and non spirohettal infections like Leptosira, Q Fever, and a dozen or so Richettsia family. The flouride issue does play into this but for the most cipro and levaquin are causing theses types of symptoms because they are very effective at killing spirochettal infections which in turn causes a secondary immmune response to the cell membrane blebs of dead organism. This is the classic "herz". Although the floride or flourine residual also Chlorine can make RA much worse. Drsteve

So I remembered I use to put on a little DMSO and sprayed a little HP on my leg, hip, and lower back. I am now so delighted I can hardly type. Pain is almost gone. Just a little pain in mid back and neck. I have lived with rheumatoid arthritis for 30 years. Thank you so much for the tips. Rose

[YEA]  Hepatitis C and H202 therapy:

I have been diagnosed with HCV and used food grade 35% H202 starting with 3 drops in 6-8 ounces of distilled water and incrementing to this date by one drop each day to 24 drops. I have experienced healing crisis often but have been able to go to work. I am 70 years old. This evening I experienced quite a bit of blood in my stool. I don't want to stop my treatment, because HCV is deadly. So far there is no liver damage. I have searched the web to see if anyone else experienced blood in stool to no avail. Of course my doctor said there was no cure for my condition, but I do not believe that. I believe that only God can cure and only God knows if I will be cured.

The blood transfusion that I received in the 70s when my 7th child was born was tainted with HCV virus. I stayed in denial for years after being given that information. Now the doctor says my viral load has gotten very high, so I decided to try to find a natural cure. I hope someone can tell me the significance of the blood in the stool. (by the way my oldest daughter started the treatment with me and she only had arthritis and is on the way down from 22 drops with hardly any ill effects -- slight nauseau immediately after ingesting the mix). She no longer feels any pain from RA."

[NAY]   My wife, who has Rheumatoid Arthritis, used Hydrogen Peroxide for about 1 month. She built up on the dose per instructions and was taking 25 drops in 6oz of water 3 times a day for the last 2 weeks of the month. The H2O2 caused a her a lot of fatigue, which was expected according to the side effect descriptions. She also experienced a significant increase in joint pain during the entire time on H2O2. She eventually stopped using it because there was no improvement in RA symptoms, and it appeared that the H2O2 was making it worse.

Hi Gemini -

Research BORON for arthritis. I take 3mg a day with Magnesium and Calcium (equal amounts of the ca and mg - and I sometimes skip the Calcium, because of some of the things I have read I do not take it every single day) along with 5, 000iu of D3.

I have no more pain in my hands unless I really overdo it.

Seriously great stuff for arthritis, and it costs very little. Read about it. Just google "boron and arthritis".

Best!

[YEA]  1.5 yrs ago I was diagnosed with RA (Rheumatiod Arthritis) and I learned what pain is. I have been taking 6 different medications for it and allergy medicine. I had gotten to the point where I wasn't sure if I would ever get better, and deffinatly knew that I did not want to be taking a handsful of pills everyday, when it was suggested that I look at this website and specifically at the Hydrogen Peroxide Cures, that maybe there was something there.

I did and also looked at some other websites to see both sides of the story, and decided that maybe this could help me.

3 weeks into treatment following the drop schedule I had started with 3 drops 3 times a day of 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide diluted down to 3% and was now at 25 drops 3 times a day, I felt good enough to stop taking all of my medications. I had been gradually decreasing them since I had started taking the HP, I didn't just stop taking them all of a sudden, I had feared withdrawl symptoms, or other side effects. I would simply take one pill out of my regime every few days or so, and see if there were any ill effects. As of today I am 3 weeks off my medications.

I thought it might be worth a mention though, as I haven't read it anywhere else yet, that I started experiencing the Cleansing Crisis, and went to the local Health Food store to see if they had any sugestions to help me to ease the new joint pain that I was experiencing as I did not want to take any Over the Counter Drugs for the pain, and the Health Food Store Owner sugested that I add more fiber, as some toxin's need to leave the body through the bowels, not just through the liver and urine. She suggested that since I was so far into the Therapy that I start out with 3 tbs of a fiber supliment 3 times a day for a week or so the help eleminate more of the toxin's. I have followed her direction for 2 days now, and have noticed a considerabe improvment. I think if I had been taking a fiber supliment regularly since I had started the HP Therapy, maybe I wouldn't have gone through the Cleansing Crisis, although I am by no means a registered naturopath or anything, just a regular person willing to learn, it deffinatly makes sence to me that this information might be of benifit to others.

Something else I have experienced is throat soarness. For this I have Apple Cider Vinager mixed with equal parts Honey ready in my fridge, and would take this 15 mls 3 time a day until the soarness went away. I have also found it a great way to head off colds.

And Just another side note: I have been using the HP as ear drops for my boyfriend and myself, and have noticed that his hearing has improved (he has a perforated ear drum, and was hard of hearing, he is in construction and the loud machinery has been gradually making his hearing worse). The other night he asked me to turn the TV down, that has never happened befor.e

I am still feeling some soarness and stifness, although I am not sure if that can be associated with the fresh snow on the mountains, but now I can see a future without pain and without RA. I am optimistic.

[YEA]  35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide--

I had crippling rheumatoid arthritis in 1985, where all the joints in my right arm were locked up and would not move. I was in constant, horrible pain and got no sleep for over 3 months. I began drinking extremely dilute amounts of the 35% HP DROPS in PURE WATER (NOT Tap Water!!)I also had candida albicans, and my cholesterol level was 465 as tested by my MD friend. Within 1 week the pain in my joints on my right arm was GONE and I was sleeping like a baby! Within one month I had free range of motion in all joints--from my fingers to my shoulder. My cholesterol was down to 289 and the candida symptoms were greatly reduced. By the end of the second month, my cholesterol was 155 (normal and safe) and all symptoms of candida albicans infestation were GONE. That was 28 YEARS ago, and I have had NO reoccurances of any of the above problems. I call that a "CURE!"

H2O2 amounts taken: Begin first day with ONE DROP H2O2 in 8 oz. PURE WATER. Second day: two drops H2O2. Third day: three drops H2O2...and so on until you reach 10 drops per day. Now, if the taste is too bad, split the HP drops into 5 in the morning, and 5 in the evening--near bed time. Work back taking 10 drops twice a day, THEN split it into THIRDS, AND begin taking 7 drops THREE times a day, or whatever you can handle. Slowly work back up to taking 10 drops THREE times a day. Don't go much higher than that, or you might want to stay at 7 drops, three times a day. Let your body determine your amount.

ALSO, do NOT drink any H2O2 water 45 minutes BEFORE OR AFTER EATING A MEAL OR TAKING SUPPLIMENTS! You may throw up (vomit.)

ALSO, take 500 mg. of Vitamin C once a day to neutralize any free radical formations that may have occured. The oxygen in the H2O2 attacks the iron in the blood and causes that reaction. The Vitamin C will clean it up, and Selenium may also be substituted for the Vitamin C.

MY SKIN CANCER (Melanoma) "erased" with topical application of 35% Food Grade HP: I had several dark mole-like formations on my forearms come up after being out in the Texas sun a lot. They itched, and my doctor friend said they were Melanomas and that I should see a professional about them. I knew what HP would do for them, so I took a nail file and GENTLY abraded the surface of these dark bumps, and then I applied straight 35% Food Grade HP to the spots with a Q-Tip (cotton swab on a stick) UNTIL THEY TURNED WHITE IN COLOR. I did this 3 times a day for a week. By the end of the week, they had turned to powder or dust, and were FLAT and GONE! There was no itching, NO pain, and they left a slightly lightened spot on my arm where they used to be. They never came back again, and that was over 20 YEARS ago!

ARTHRITIS IN MY KNEES: 17 years ago, I developed rhumatoid arthritis in both knees. I began the HP method by washing my knees with soap and water to remove any body oil, then MISTED them with a 3% solution of HP that was diluted down from 35% Food Grade HP (12:1) with PURE WATER. I wore shorts and then misted my knees, then waited until they were dry, then misted them again while I watched Television or did Computer work. I did this for at least 30 minutes at a time, and I did 4 HP misting sessions a day. My knees were back to NORMAL WITH NO PAIN in ONE WEEK!! I was so happy! I told my friends who had similar problems, and they said that they tried SOAKING their finger and elbow joints in 3% Food Grade HP by pouring the 3% HP solution into a shallow bowl and soaking them for 30 minutes 3-4 times a day. When finished, they would pour the 3% HP solution back into a one gallon plastic jug. The last soaking, they put it in the refrigerator for safe keeping overnight. The next day, they would remove the HP jug from the refrigerator and let it sit out until it had warmed to room temperature, then use in in the bowl to soak their joints until the evening. Worked great!! If you make up one gallon of 3% solution and keep it in the refrigerator, it should last at least one month before you need to make another gallon of it.

IN DALLAS, TEXAS, I found 35% Food Grade HP at "Roy's Natural Market" 6025 Royal Ln. Ste 130
Dallas, TX 75230-8857
Phone: (214) 987-0213. They have been selling HP for many years, and it is about $16.00 (US) for one quart, which will last a long time when you are spraying it.

Enjoy being pain-free!

Iodine   1  0   

Posted by Jeanmarie (Seekonk, MA) on 01/21/2009

[YEA]  Lugol's Iodine that I ordered from the Breath of Life website has given me relief from all-over-tissue-pain after searching for 12 years. I'm an N.D. candidate; therefore, shunned all meds, but the Dr.'s said my rheumatoid factor was sky high and everytime I ate Sugar, Bread or overate or had anything much to eat, I would get inflamed and achy and wake up the next morning barely able to move. I've got an active 13-year old and wanted my mobility back. Everytime I take it with food or shortly thereafter, my pain totally vanishes. I thought something was up when it would vanish for a period of time if I ate lobster or had a seaweed body wrap on vacation. It's the iodine!!! I take about 4-6 drops 3X/day. Eureka!!! I just wonder now if I'll have to take this for the rest of my life.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  Juicing for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I tried every nasty medication for my severe RA and I unfortunately had the side effects that came with all the traditional RA meds. I woke up in severe pain for years, and recently I have been improving alot. I watched "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead" it's about a guy that has an autoimmune disease.

I juice fasted for a week and then stayed away from a few foods like dairy and grains that give me pain and now some of my joints are not swollen. I am weaning off my meds and I am optimistic. My pain in the morning has dimished. I think juicing just fruits and vegetables heal our bodies.

[YEA]  I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis almost 25 years ago and was suffering on and off with painful inflammation in my hands. After taking all the usual prescribed medicines for about a year, I had enough and went on to cure myself. I did 4 weeks of juice fasting and afterwards ate only vegan and mostly raw foods (all organic). I also let the dentist remove all my amalgams. Over the years when my diet got poor and my stress levels high, I would get inflammation again. Whenever I went back to juice fasting (the ultimate detoxification, I would do this for all kinds of diseases) and eating RAVE diet (google it) foods, I get symptom free. Stress in life is often unavoidable, but we have power over the foods we eat. Juice fasting and' RAVE diet are my cure for Rheumatoid arthritis. If I find myself eating too sweet (sugar is poison, I use Stevia and Agave syrup only), I counteract with greens. (alalize again). Industrial food (all prepared food) is poison. I don't eat it.

Hi Deirdre,

Thank you so much for your appreciation. When I was fasting for 4 weeks and drinking only herbal teas and fruit juices, I did very simple juices at the time. Carrot -apple was my favorite. What I wanted to tell you was: it is not soo terribly important which exact recipe cured me. Important was the fasting of 4 weeks with juices. What I wanted to say is, to stop eating industrialized food, food from cans, dead food, chemical food, beverages, comfort food and so on, - THAT is important. There are books out there for juice fasting with recipes. To overcome RA you have to do serious detoxification programs on all levels.

1) strong determination and motivation for self-cure including learning about healing and detoxification and your specific illness (I read a ton of books)

2) juice fasting and detoxification on all levels (in US cities I would care very much to filter drinking water, in my area it's not a problem)

3) RAVE diet (google it)

4) Exercise

5) Relaxation and understanding of your situation from a higher perspective

6) Connection to the spiritual

7) Necessary changes in life (work, relationships, etc) (illness comes from a major stress in life) I always got a serious outbreak of RA when something was very wrong in my life. This has to be determined and worked at. I had to change jobs and work on my relationships and I had to leave a marriage. My illness was actually guiding me. Through my illness I was often forced to do something what I couldn't and wouldn't have done otherwise. that is the spiritual part of the "deeper connections".

All these things combined are the "healing factor". Not one recipe with a few different ingredients.

I did fasting for 4 weeks and afterwards RAVE diet (only natural and lots of raw and organic food). Plus exercise, saunas, taking out amalgam of teeth etc. It is not this ONE single recipe what will cure you but running, fasting, and changing your lifestyle on different levels plus the aforementioned determination and motivation and sense of purpose. All vegetables and fruits grown organically are healing foods. Juices are concentrated healing foods especially all dark greens. Sorry, I am not into this "one recipe thing". This doesn't heal a serious illness like RA.

So, I hope I am not disappointing you, but this is what still helps me when I have health troubles. this is just a broad guideline for people who are capable to read and learn for themselves. I had to believe in myself as I took the responsibility to get out of my medications against the advice of all these specialists and doctors and even against my naturopaths advice.

This is another important step: to start to believe in yourself more than anybody out there (however high up they seem to be). So, it's a real journey to yourself and your own powers.

Mahalo for your interest,

I read your post and EVERYTHING you said was exactly what I have found to be true! I have been off of all Meds for just over 6 months! Freedom and feeling great!

Few realize the actual cause of RA. That cause originates in the bowels and has everything to do with digestion, leaky gut and toxic colon. Juice fasts certainly help the problem but in order to speed that process, I also recommend sodium bentonite powder, five tablespoons each day for about a year to heal the bowel and body. That can be done with the juicing. What you are doing with the juicing will work it will just take more time to cure. Those that continue to take the doctor prescribed medication have no idea that the medication is actually contributing to the problem making things worse and that is why people have to change drugs after a time. Another very important part to the healing process is probiotics. Happy healing.

[YEA]  I was diagnosed with RA and had horrible pain, swelling and bad lab work. I noticed a connection between the foods I ate and the pain that day or the next day. Dairy made my knees swell and my starchy foods made my si joints hurt really bad. Sweets and excess sugar made my whole body hurt. After eating and juicing whole fresh fruits and vegetables for 80% of my daily diet, my labs started dropping and my swollen knees started to get better SLOWLY. It took a year for my arm to regain range of motion and my knees slowly got better too, they had been swollen for over three years, every day I had terrible knee pain. I could barely walk around the block they were so swollen. My labs such as sedimentation rate was at 60 and it is in normal range now. My RA factor has come down a lot too. Lastly my CRP has come down 500 points, but it came down 50 points every 6 months, it takes awhile if you have a severe case of RA.

Juicing fruits and veggies and eating them raw is key, and avoiding, wheat, corn , potatoes, and dairy was important for me. Also I eat meat once or twice a week because too much makes me feel unwell. Hope this helps someone, and remember don't lose hope.
