Arthritis Cures and Treatment

Postby Cotton Over Steel » Sat Dec 10, 2011 4:59 pm

There has been a gang spotted recently, mainly targeting the elderly for painful encounters. They have also been known to attack the injured and those who work at repetitive manual tasks. It is the Wrightus Gang; and the worst of them is Arthur (Arthur Wrightus).

Acidosis; an over acid condition in the body, is a chemical cause of arthritis.

This can be triggered by eating refined sugars, tomatoes, pork; and other foods.

My favorite remedies are cherries and cherry juice. These will help the body rid itself of acids and take the bumps out of the knuckles. I have found that black cherries or juice straight, unmixed, first thing in the morning is the best. Take for 4 consecutive days, followed by 4 days off; then repeat. Black cherries clean the liver and bowels quickly also, so be warned.

Raw potatoes and turnips are great for acidosis. If potatoes are boiled, use the water as a soaking bath for hands and feet, to relieve stiffness in the joints.

Sage is helpful for both arthritis and rheumatism pain. Take 1 ounce sage (white preferable) to 1 1/2 pints water. Simmer together for 20 minutes and take 1/2 cup when needed.

Parsley tea helps reduce acidosis pain.
Use 1 quart boiling water and 1 cup packed parsley, steep together for 15 minutes, strain and refrigerate. Use 1/2 cup as needed for pain.

White grape juice helps absorb the acid in the system, drink 2-3 glasses daily.

Alfalfa helps to relieve pain form acidosis. Eat fresh sprouts daily, take tablets, or make tea with 1 teaspoon to 1 cup boiling water, drinking 2-3 cups daily.

Lemons as well as black cherry juice; can provide relief in 2-48 hours. Drink water with fresh lemon juice taken as often as possible; 1/2 to three lemons per glass of water. Make sure to rinse teeth off afterward, so tooth enamel is not corroded by the lemon's citric acid. One of the best breakfasts for you is started with diluted fresh lemon juice, which cleans your system. Wait for a half hour if possible, then follow this eating a easily digestible small seed or nut such as: sunflower seeds or sesame seed. Eat all you want. If you get hungry after this it is OK to eat or drink something else; even the dreaded coffee, sweets and starches. Whole grains and/or other nuts though, would be ideal and green tea or gotu cola for that jolt.

Arthritis Ointments

Wintergreen oil rubbed onto the joints will relieve stiffness;

Thuja: use twigs and leaves to make a salve;

Rosemary: use with 2 ounces beeswax and 1½ pound of lard; put in a large ceramic pot in a hot oven for 3 hours yielding a salve for arthritic pain.

White Flower Analgesic Balm contains wintergreen, menthol, camphor, eucalyptus, lavender and peppermint; it works on all the body’s outer pain, even the back.

Gout Ointments

Plantain root: powdered or fresh: mixed with lard and spread onto a piece of leather and applied to the toes to draw out the acid;

Goutweed: 1 teaspoon per cup of boiling water applied to joints for pain;

Jasmine oil will relieve pain and swelling in the joints due to acidosis.

Chives help reduce acidity; relieving pain: eat in salad or drink as a tea.

The first sign of gout, in men, usually starts with pain in the big toe. Gout is a form of acidosis. Rotating big toe will provide some relief, start repetitions clockwise, then counter-clockwise. Good to practice kneeling with toe bent backward.

Arthritis Chemical Cause

Arthritis is caused by a body condition called acidosis; an over acid condition in the body. Excess acid usually settles in the joints, causing inflammation and pain. This excess inhibits the production of natural cortisone, which feeds the adrenal glands and helps the body metabolize proteins.

Eliminating low acid or acid absorbing foods: Eliminate all sugars, white flour products, processed foods which contain chemicals, and high acid foods such as tomatoes and oranges. Also avoid salt, vinegar, mustard, pepper, coffee, black teas, tobacco and alcohol. Good low acid foods are raw salads, fresh sprouts, pecans, brewer's yeast, wheat germ, and raw vegetables.

Eat Alkaline-Forming Foods:
avocados, corn, dates, fresh coconut, fresh fruits (most), fresh vegetables (most), honey, maple syrup, molasses, raisins, and soy products

Vegetables, especially raw vegetables, balance the acidity and alkali levels in the blood. Although it might seem that citrus fruit would have an acidifying effect on the body, the citric acid they contain actually has an alkalinizing effect in the system.

AVOID Acid-Forming Foods:
Alcohol Asparagus Beans Brussels Sprouts Catsup Chickpeas Cocoa Coffee Cornstarch Cranberries Eggs Fish Flour; flour based products Legumes Lentils Meat Milk Mustard Noodles Oatmeal Olives Organ meats Pasta Pepper Plums Poultry Prunes Sauerkraut Shellfish Soft drinks Sugar; all foods with sugar added Tea Vinegar Aspirin, tobacco, and most drugs are also acid forming.
