The first Western disease I had been ever familiar with as a little boy was arthritis. My beloved paternal grandmother, BerthaCooper, suffered from this pathology for many years. She had it very bad in her wrists and joints. I remember her asking me if Iwould go to the corner liquor store on a corner of 101stStreet and Avalon Boulevard in Watts, Los angeles, and buy her some Bill Gay, a white pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory rubbing lotion. She would rub Bill Gay on her wrists and joints and also her tendons also.
- As a little boy, I didn't 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 it's Akashic Records of health knowledge on me in the late 1990s, I finally realized 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 make and I never tasted virtually any food back in my deaf, dumb, and blind nights and years in which 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.
Was Grandma's Great Tasting Soul Food that Did Her Along With Arthritis and Tendonitis
Yes, all that cornbread, collard and mustard greens, salt pork, candied yams, melted 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, 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 how about all that hot cacao, java (laced with white sugar and dairy cream), butter milk, pet milk, Kool-Aid, and soda pop that she drunk?
- She didn't smoke cigarettes such as your ex five sons, but she would roll up her own bud with Prince Albert brand tobacco and ZigZag paper.
- My childhood friends thought my grandmother smoked marijuana.
- It was a little uncomfortable until they found out what it was she was really smoking.
Mentioned all of the above to be able 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, and 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 , Arthritis is a Condition of Inflammation of the Joints
That's just about all it is. The Latin word "Arth" means "joints," as well as theEnglish suffix, "it is" means "inflammation." What is inflammation? A burning! What can cause this burning or inflammation? ACID!!! Plain and simple!
Grandma Sis had been lucky, eventually dying from degeneracy (that doctors call natural death). However, her sons (and daughter-in-laws, nephews, nieces, and also grandchildren) were not thus lucky, passing away from the insidious cancer, including my personal father from lung cancer inside 1994 and my mother from pancreatic cancer in.
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 kills all of them. It was easy to write me off when I was a Muslim and member of the Nation of Islam in early 1990s, simply saying "that boy is mad at white folks and the world!" But today being a Naturist, what's their excuse? Only ignorance as well as 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 produced when you cook the vegetables. This is true! And for you rat feces-laced chocolate lovers around, your precious chocolate also contains oxalic acid.
Now, I don't want an individual thinking soul meals are the cause of arthritis, because a lot of white folks, Mexicans/Latinos, andAsians also suffer from arthritis. Like soul foods, the actual StandardAmerican Diet will also cause arthritis. Osteoarthritis is anAmerican disease!
- You understand arthritis, you should understand tendonitis and gout.
- They are citrus fluid build up 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 The almighty instructed Bible believers to be able to heal themselves with herbs (Revelations 22:2,Ezekiel 47:12, and Pslams 104:14), in their strange obedience toGod, they make enemy's pharmaceutical drugs that avoid the arthritis. Why and how? Because pharmaceutics grade drugs, though made from alkaloids, eventually break up in to ACIDespecially ascetic acid, which eats your redcolored blood cells up) in the body, and also acid generates inflammation, so how intelligent is it to take something to target the symptom which usually eventually lengthens and worsen the initial condition?
Mother Nature Has Provided Therapeutic for Arthritis and Other Inflammatory Illnesses
To be able to heal from arthritis, all one needs to consume is certain herbs. Herbs that are anti-inflammatory in nature are the best to cure from arthritis. These herbal remedies includeMeadowsweet, Peppermint, Wintergreen, Birch, White and BlackWillow Bark and also 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, and also Mullein are the paramount arthritis herbs.
- They greatly counteract mucous, which is the byproduct of acid, which causes inflammation.
- Organic sulfur, commonly called MSM Sulfur, can be great in healing arthritis.
- So is Noni juice!
You can make your own therapeutic salve as well from a base butter or oil such as shea or perhaps 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 own 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 the herbs mentioned above that is a powerful little formulation that works well wonders for me when my wrists start to harm from excessive typing (typing up all that legal pleading).
- Can not forget about magnet therapy as well for arthritis.
- Magnets make a problem or injured area alkaline and also enhances circulation in order to the problem area to ensure that healing can begin.
My good friend and brother, Mark Lomax, a musician and performer, cured himself from severe bouts of gout, another acid condition. It's been a few years now because he had gout. What did he do? First, he detoxified his body on our Full Body Detox. Then, this individual did a daily regimen of our Electric Greens Cell Food (pure alkalinity), Important joints Formula and Dark Cherry Juice Concentrate. You wouldn't recognize this brother if you knew him 3 years ago. He also lost over 70 lbs on these types of herbs. This man is a walking example 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 for that reason provide healing for arthritis.
- They taste just like candy and are chewable and you can chew as much as you like, although 3-6 tablets after dinner really need 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 and base) 3-4 times weekly will greatly get rid of acid accumulation in the joint parts. By all means, avoid all acidic beverages beer, soda pop, milk, orange juice, wine, java, etc.).
Man, Life is So Wonderful When You Know How to Cure 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 and also Obea, and the others (out here about the West Coast inside LosAngeles) will all benefit from this profound familiarity with 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 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 couldn't put a gun to my head and make me to eat a piece of chicken or pork today, and I mean that! I love myself too much to harm my temple of Lord. My children are beautiful (and highly astute and precocious)because of what their mom and dad ate before and while conceiving them. You can do it too!
- Make the change people!
- Taste is not the criterion for what is healthy.
- Health content is!
