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 Dan Gay, a white pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory rubbing lotion. She would caress Dan Gay on her wrists and joints and her muscles also.
- As a little boy, I did not understand disease.
- I didn't know how my grandmother developed arthritis.
- All I knew is that she had it (and claimed it too).
However, when the Universe bestowed the Akashic Records of health knowledge on me in the late 1990s, I finally understood exactly why Grandma Sis (Bertha) developed and suffered from arthritis. You see, my grandmother was originally from the To the south,Mississippi to be specific. The ideal dinner was "soul food." My grandmother was an outstanding cook and I never tasted virtually any food back in my personal deaf, dumb, and blind nights and years that tasted better than my paternal grandmother's food/cooking.
However, although 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 nutritional. It was Grandma's great tasting soul food that did her together with arthritis and tendonitis. Yes, all that cornbread, collard and mustard greens, salt pork, candied yams, fried hen, hard working liver, 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, processed 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, etc. And think about everything very hot powdered 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 such as your ex five sons, yet she would rotate up her very own smokes 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.
Mentioned all of the above to let you all know that my grandmother's arthritis was caused by what she consumed and drank on a daily basis through ignorance, tradition, and also 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 condition in my grandmother as well.
- She also had bouts with gout, which is nothing but arthritis in the ankle area.
You Notice, Arthritis is a Condition of Inflammation of the Joints
That's all it is. The Latin word "Arth" signifies "joints," and theEnglish suffix, "it is" means "inflammation." What exactly is inflammation? A burning! What can cause this using up or inflammation? ACID!!! Plain and simple!
Grandma Sis has been lucky, eventually dying from degeneracy (that doctors call natural death). However, her sons (and daughter-in-laws, nephews, nieces, and grandchildren) were not so lucky, perishing in the insidious cancer, including my personal father from lung cancer in 1994 and my mother from pancreatic cancer in.
Smoothie for Gout
http://www.melissawest.com/smoothie-for-gout/ For recipe click the link above Hi love your show. My husband is suffering so badly from gout pain. PLEASE do ...
My family could not, would not, and to this very day, still will not believe that what they put into their mouths cause their pathologies and eventually eliminates them. It was easy to write me 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? Nothing but 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 Black folks, Negroes, and heart and soul food lovers! But this is true! Greens are laced with "oxalic" acid and this oxalic acid is greatly made when you cook the veggies. This is true! And for you rat feces-laced chocolate lovers out there, your precious chocolate also contains oxalic acid.
Now, I don't want a person thinking soul meals are the cause of arthritis, because a lot of white folks, Mexicans/Latinos, andAsians also suffer from arthritis. Like spirit meals, the StandardAmerican Diet will also result in arthritis. Arthritis is anAmerican disease!
- You understand arthritis, you should understand tendonitis as well as gout.
- They are acidic fluid buildup 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. Despite the fact that Lord 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 arthritis. Why and how? Because pharmaceutics grade drugs, though made from alkaloids, eventually break up into ACIDespecially ascetic acid, which eats your redcolored blood vessels cells up) by the body processes, and acid generates inflammation, so how intelligent is it to take something to target the symptom which eventually lengthens and worsen the initial condition?
Mother Nature Has Provided Therapeutic for Arthritis and Other Inflammatory Diseases
In order to heal from joint disease, all one needs to consume is certain herbs. Herbal remedies that are anti-inflammatory in nature are the best to recover from arthritis. These herbal treatments 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 take place 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 will be the paramount arthritis herbs.
- They greatly counteract mucous, which is the consequence of acid, which in turn causes inflammation.
- Organic sulfur, commonly called MSM Sulfur, can be great in healing arthritis.
- So is Noni juice!
You could make your own healing salve as well from a base butter or oil such as shea or cocoa butter, coconut, olive, or almond oil (or any other 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 every one of the herbal remedies mentioned above that is a powerful little method that actually works wonders for me when my wrists start to hurt from excessive typing (typing up that legal pleading).
- Cannot forget about magnet therapy as well for arthritis.
- Magnets make a problem or injured area alkaline and also enhances circulation to the problem area to ensure that healing can begin.
My good friend as well as brother, Mark Lomax, a musician and performer, relieved himself from serious bouts of gout, another acid condition. It's been a few years now since he had gout. Exactly what did he do? First, he detoxified his body on our Full Body Cleanse. Then, he or she did a daily regimen of our Electric Greens Mobile Food (pure alkalinity), Joint parts Formula and Black Cherry Juice Concentrate. You wouldn't recognize this brother if you knew him 3 years ago. He also lost a lot more than 70 lbs on these kinds of 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 and effect and so provide healing for arthritis.
- They taste just like candy and are chewable and you can gnaw 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 excellent health food stores.
Soaking inflamed body parts in hot water and essential oils ofPeppermint and Eucalyptus can 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 as well as base) 3-4 times weekly will greatly eliminate acid buildup in the joint parts. By all means, stay away from all acidic drinks beer, soda pop, milk, orange juice, wine, java, and so on.).
Man, Life is So Wonderful When You Know How to Heal and Stop 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 and Obea, and the others (out here on the West Coast in LosAngeles) will all benefit from this profound knowledge of proper diet as well as from my personal 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 readily distributed.
As much as I loved soul food and my relative's cooking back in my death (Negro) days, you could not 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 God. My children are beautiful (and highly astute and precocious)because of what their mom and dad ate prior to and while conceiving them. It can be done too!
- Make the change people!
- Flavor is not the criterion for what is healthy.
- Dietary content is!
