The first Western disease I was actually familiar with as a little boy was arthritis. My beloved paternal grandmother, BerthaCooper, suffered from this pathology for quite some time. She had it very bad in her wrists and joints. I remember her asking me if Iwould go to the corner liquor shop on a corner of 101stStreet and Avalon Boulevard in Watts, California, and buy her some Ben Gay, a white pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory rubbing product. She would caress Dan Gay on her wrists and joints and also her tendons also.
- As a little boy, I did not understand disease.
- I failed to know how my grandmother developed arthritis.
- All I knew is that she had it (and claimed it too).
However, when the Universe bestowed its Akashic Records of health knowledge on me in the late 1990s, I finally recognized why Grandma Sis (Bertha) developed and suffered from arthritis. You see, my grandmother was originally from your South,Mississippi to be specific. The ideal dinner was "soul food." My grandmother was an excellent prepare and I never tasted any food back in my deaf, dumb, and blind times and years which tasted better than my paternal grandmother's food/cooking. However, while this so-called food, soul food, tasted good, I now understand that taste is not the criterion or measuring stick for what is healthy or dietary.
Was Grandma's Great Tasting Spirit Food that Did Her in With Arthritis and Tendonitis
Yes, all that cornbread, collard and mustard greens, salt pork, candied yams, toast poultry, lean meats, catfish, pork chops, rockCornish hen, neck bones, ham, white rice, etc. eventually did her (and the rest of my family members) in. Not to mention eating all that white, enhanced Webber's and Wonder bread, flap jacks (pancakes), syrup and biscuits, bacon, sausages, jelly cake, jelly sandwiches, saltine crackers, Vienna sausages, potted meat, Spam, hog's head cheese, liverwurst, and so on. And how about that hot cocoa, java (laced with white sugar and dairy cream), butter milk, pet milk, Kool-Aid, and soda pop in which she drunk?
- She didn't smoke cigarettes like her five sons, but she would move up her very own smoke with Prince Albert brand tobacco and ZigZag paper.
- My childhood friends thought my grandmother smoked marijuana.
- It was a little embarrassing until they found out what it was she was really smoking.
Does Cherry Juice Cure Gout? It Worked For Me!
I've bartended many years and have been drinking after work many years. One morning I woke up with incredible pain in my right big toe. It was gout. Too much ...
Mentioned all of the above to let you all know that my grandmother's arthritis was brought on by what she consumed and drank on a daily basis through ignorance, tradition, as well as habit.
- All that meat converted into uric acid in my grandmother's joints and ligaments.
- The starches broke down into carbonic acid and also made its way into her joints.
- And so did the lactic acid from the brake down of the dairy products she consumed.
- The smoking also created an over acid problem in my grandmother as well.
- She also had bouts with gout, which is nothing but osteoarthritis in the ankle area.
You See, Arthritis is a Condition of Inflammation of the Joints
That's almost all it is. The Latin word "Arth" means "joints," as well as theEnglish suffix, "it is" means "inflammation." What's inflammation? A burning! Acne breakouts this burning up or inflammation? ACID!!! Plain and simple!
Grandma Sis Was Lucky, Eventually Dying from Degeneracy (that Doctors Call Natural Death)
However, her sons (and daughter-in-laws, nephews, nieces, and grandchildren) were not therefore lucky, passing away from your insidious cancer, including my father from lung cancer within 1994 and my mother from pancreatic cancer in.
My family could not, would not, and also to this very day, still will not believe that what they put into their mouths cause their pathologies and eventually gets rid of these. It was easy to write myself off when I was a Muslim and member of the Nation of Islam in the early 1990s, simply saying "that boy is mad at white folks and the world!" But today as a Naturist, what's their excuse? Just ignorance and traditional paralysis! Soul food is a tradition, Djehuty! Yes, a tradition that leads to an early grave!
One of the Greatest Contributors of Arthritis is Collard and Mustard Greens
Sorry Dark folks, Negroes, and spirit food lovers! But this is true! Greens are laced with "oxalic" acid and this oxalic acid is greatly created when you prepare the vegetables. This is true! And for you rat feces-laced chocolate lovers available, your precious chocolate also contains oxalic acid.
Now, I don't want you thinking soul food is the cause of arthritis, because a lot of white folks, Mexicans/Latinos, andAsians also suffer from arthritis. Like spirit food, the StandardAmerican Diet will also cause arthritis. Joint disease is anAmerican disease!
- You recognize arthritis, you should understand tendonitis as well as gout.
- They are acidic fluid develop problems in the joints that cause inflammation (pain).
Most modern day suffers of arthritis (and tendonitis and gout)are fighting the symptoms of these inflammatory diseases with pharmaceutical grade drugs. Although God instructed Bible believers to heal themselves with herbal treatments (Revelations 22:2,Ezekiel 47:12, and Pslams 104:14), in their strange obedience toGod, they take the enemy's pharmaceutical drugs that avoid the joint disease. Why and how? Because pharmaceutical drug grade drugs, though made from alkaloids, eventually break down straight into ACIDespecially ascetic acid, which eats your redcolored blood cells up) by the body processes, and acid creates inflammation, so how intelligent is it to take something to target the symptom which usually eventually lengthens and intensify the initial condition?
Mother Nature Has Provided Therapeutic for Arthritis and Other Inflammatory Diseases
In order to heal from osteoarthritis, all one needs to consume is certain herbs. Herbs that are anti-inflammatory in nature are the best to be able to recover from arthritis. These herbs includeMeadowsweet, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Birch, White and BlackWillow Bark and Balm of Gilead.
However, Other Certain Herbs Work Synergistically With the Herbs Supra
Personally, no healing from arthritis can happen efficiently without the following herbs: Devil's Claw, BoswelliaFrankincense), Uva Ursi, Mullein leaves, Saffron, Cayenne pepper, Feverfew, and Guaiac wood.
- Devil's Claw, Boswellia, Uva Ursi, as well as Mullein are the paramount arthritis herbal treatments.
- They greatly counteract mucous, which is the resultant effect of acid, which in turn causes inflammation.
- Organic sulfur, commonly known as MSM Sulfur, can be great in healing arthritis.
- So is Noni juice!
You can make your own recovery salve as well from a base butter or oil such as shea or even cocoa butter, coconut, olive, or almond oil (or any good oil) and add in a few drops (10-15 drops)of the following essential oils: Peppermint, Clove, Wintergreen,Eucalyptus, Birch, and/or Spearmint.
- You can rub this salve directly on your joints or other problems area.
- It is very soothing and healing.
And of course, as an herbalist, I have formulated my own JointFormula that consists of all of the herbal remedies mentioned above that is a powerful little method that works well wonders for me when my wrists start to hurt from excessive typing (typing up everything legal pleading).
- Can't forget about magnet remedy as well for arthritis.
- Magnets make a problem or injured area alkaline and also enhances circulation to be able to the problem area in order that healing can begin.
My good friend as well as brother, Mark Lomax, a musician and performer, relieved himself from significant bouts of gout, another acid condition. It's been a few years now since he had gout. What did he do? First, he detoxified his body on our Full Body Cleanse. Then, this individual did a daily regimen of our Electric Greens Mobile Food (pure alkalinity), Joint parts Formula and Dark Cherry Juice Concentrate. Make use of recognize this brother if you knew him 3 years ago. He also lost a lot more than 70 lbs on these herbs. This man is a walking instance of healing!
- Should also mention the importance of pineapple enzymes calledBromelain for the healing of arthritis and other acid conditions.
- Bromelain or pineapple enzymes are anti-inflammatory in nature as well as effect and for that reason provide healing for arthritis.
- They taste exactly like candy and are chewable and you can chew up as much as you like, although 3-6 tablets after dinner ought to get the job done.
- You can find Bromelain for the most part good health food stores.
Soaking inflamed body parts in hot water and essential oils ofPeppermint and Eucalyptus can also be good for joint disease.
But Most Importantly in Fighting Arthritis is Modified Diet
Cut out or cut down on meat and dairy products. These are two of the biggest culprits in causing arthritis. A vegetable cocktail consisting of celery, parsley, apple and/or carrot (for sweetness and also base) 3-4 times weekly will greatly get rid of acid build up in the joint parts. By all means, stay away from all acidic liquids beer, soda pop, milk, orange juice, wine, java, etc.).
Man, Life is So Wonderful When You Know How to Heal and Prevent Disease
The understanding of diseases is just as important. Sometimes I'm full of grief and sadness from my knowledge and knowing that people suffer from a lack of knowledge (and insanity too). Notice Ecclesiastes 1:18 and Hosea 4:6
However, the children of the future, including my son, Asim, and daughter, Layla, and other Conscious Minds offspring - Nadya,Najee, Elijah, Asar, Sunshine and the newest edition from Melia as well as Obea, and the others (out here about the West Coast within LosAngeles) will all benefit from this profound understanding of proper diet as well as from my suffering and grief, as well as their parents. I'm also quite sure that many children around the nation will also benefit from their parents' reading and applying this particular health information and knowledge that is freely distributed.
As much as I loved soul food and my relative's cooking back in my death (Negro) days, you could hardly put a gun to my head and compel me to eat a piece of chicken or pork today, and I mean that! I really like myself too much to harm my temple of The almighty. My children are beautiful (and highly astute and precocious)because of what their parents ate before and while conceiving them. You can do it too!
- Make the change people!
- Flavor is not the criterion for what is healthy.
- Nutritional content is!
