Osteoarthritis Protection and Treatment Protocol Continued

“Research in Europe has consistently found that glucosamine was equal to or better than the drugs typically used in the USA for pain relief, mainly ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin or Nuprin). Typically at the two week mark the drugs showed better pain relief but after eight weeks the glucosamine group had an average 300% lower pain score than the ibuprofen users.”    Jean Carper, Note IMO long term pain improved because the joint tissue was rebuilt

“In a large nine month study at several medical centers 252 doctors compared glucosamine sulfate 1,500 mg daily with other common treatments in 1,506 osteoarthritis patients. Glucosamine surpassed anti-inflammation agents, injectible cartilage extracts, vitamins and all other oral agents. The glucosamine brought improvement to 95% of subjects even many who had not responded to any other medical treatment.” Portugal Study

“Glucosamine should help treat any condition that involve repair of cartilage and joints including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, invertebral disc conditions, chondromalacia, tendinitis, bursitis, postsurgical repair of traumatic injury to joints and tenosynovitis. Glucosamine also is therapeutic on repairing torn tendons and ligaments.” Luke R. Bucci PhD Glucosamine Expert

“In bones vitamin K (K1 and K2) plays a role in the production of the proteins osteocalcin and matrix Gla protein (MGP). MGP not only is a contributor to bone matrix formation but it also is a potent inhibitor of calcification of arteries and cartilage.” Howard & Payne

“While MSM is commonly found in organic food, fast foods contain very little MSM. Borderline deficiency of MSM is common among Americans. MSM is a pain-reducing agent. It blocks the transmission of impulses in nerve fibers that carry pain signals. It also decreases pain by altering cross-linked collagen, resulting in less scar tissue. Studies in laboratory animals show that in those whose diet included MSM, there was less degenerative change of the articular joint compared to the control group.” Doctor Michael Lam MD

“It is a wonderful supplement and is a fantastic nutrient for depression and chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. SAMe influences the formation of brain chemicals and helps to preserve glutathione, the body’s most important internal antioxidant. SAMe is also involved in the formation of myelin, the sheath that surrounds outer part of nerve cells. As a result of this insulation property most people, taking SAMe, notice an increase of energy, alertness and well-being. SAMe has been used in Europe to treat depression and arthritis for decades. It is a liver enhancer and it helps the liver to function at its best. While it is used for all forms of arthritis it is particularly useful in the case of osteoarthritis.”  Doctor Michael Lam MD

“According to Doctor Batmanghelidjs, the body may use pain to warn us that dehydration is the basic cause of many illnesses, including: Rheumatoid Joint Pain. Rheumatoid arthritic joints and their pain can be viewed as subtle indicators of water deficiency in the affected joint cartilage surfaces. Cartilage is bathed in water and adequate hydration is needed for proper function. The use of painkillers does not cure joint pain but simply masks the underlying disease. Hydration may help in such cases.”  Doctor Michael Lam MD

“Scientists were first alerted to the many benefits of fish oils in the early 1970s when Danish physicians observed that Greenland Eskimos had an exceptionally low incidence of heart disease and arthritis despite the fact that they consumed a high-fat diet. Intensive research soon discovered that two of the fats (oils) they consumed in large quantities, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), were actually highly beneficial. More recent research has established that fish oils (EPA and DHA) play a crucial role in the prevention of atherosclerosis, heart attack, depression, and cancer. Clinical trials have shown that fish oil supplementation is effective in the treatment of many disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, and Reynaud’s disease.” Fish and Fish Oil

"In a study of people suffering from arthritis it was revealed that a deficiency in stomach acid occurred in 28.6% of rheumatoid patients and 25.7% of osteoarthritic patients. Normal subjects in the same age group have a 10.8% chance at deficiency." Doctor Anthony Cichoke 

"Synovial fluid is produced when the joint moves. But the body is lazy. If there's no joint movement, there's no reason to ooze that synovial fluid out into the joint. As time goes on, the body adapts to not creating synovial fluid, and so it takes a lot more movement to get it flowing again. To help prevent joint stiffness, you want to stop your body from slowing the flow of lubricating fluid. But even non-synovial joints will get stiff if they adapt to not changing position. That means you must move every joint in your body for several minutes at a time; either daily or at least every other day. Plan on a 15-minute movement routine, which is best done early in the morning to get everything moving again after hours of sleep." 2009, Adventure Sports Weekly  Keep Your Joints Youthful

"Bromelain is effective as an alternative to both acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). And because it helps relieve joint pain for some arthritis patients, it provides another option for patients who previously used Vioxx or one of the other COX-2 inhibitors."  Bromelain

"In a double blind study devil's claw relieved arthritis as well as the "super drug" diacerhein and did better at long term relief."   Doctor William Douglass MD

"In populations that consume natural diets of mostly unprocessed fruits, vegetables and grains autoimmune diseases are almost nonexistent. You do not see much rheumatoid  arthritis in China because they eat differently than we do."   Prevention

A study from the University of North Carolina shows that selenium can also lower your risk of osteoarthritis. Researchers found that people’s risk of arthritis was related to the amount of selenium in their bodies.”   Doctor Al Sears MD

"Scientists at the University of East Anglia say initial laboratory tests find a bioactive compound in broccoli -- sulforaphane-- blocks the enzymes linked to the joint destruction in osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis.”    Life Extension

“To be successful, you've got to address the disease at every level it exists on: molecular, biochemical, nutritional, physical, emotional, and psychological. There’s no such thing as a ‘magic bullet’ cure.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD  

"Flax seeds may be tiny, but their arthritis-healing properties are huge, owing to their rich supply of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), one of the omega-3 fatty acids that also makes cold-water fish such a powerful joint protector. In fact, flaxseed is the very best plant source of healing omega-3s. Just two daily tablespoons of ground flaxseed, or flax meal, provides you with 140% of the daily recommendation for omega-3s.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

"Berries aren’t just sweet treats; they’re also loaded with pain-relieving and healing power. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, and cherries are nature’s richest sources of anthocyanins, a group of antioxidant flavonoids with exceptional anti-inflammatory properties. A mere half-cup of berries has more antioxidant activity than five servings of broccoli, a powerful arthritis healer in its own right. Anthocyanins also support the production of healthy collagen, the infrastructure of all connective tissue, especially in your joints.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

     

Sunshine, Vitamin D and Arthritis

The simple primal act of getting LOTS of the high noon sun on your bare “unprotected” skin in large amounts just may be the most important single thing you can do for your health. If the sun casts a shadow longer than you are tall you cannot make adequate vitamin D from the sun. You MUST take vitamin D3 at the daily rate of about 1000 IU/20 pounds of body weight.

  

"Lack of sunshine and insufficient vitamin D appear to be significant factors in causing arthritis61, 62 which generally progresses to involve other joints. Arthritis has a low incidence in sunny countries and a north/south gradient63. Randomized trials have shown that symptoms of arthritis are reduced by vitamin D supplements and progress of the disease is slowed by vitamin D."   Good Vitamin D Treatise

“Current research indicates vitamin D deficiency plays a role in causing seventeen varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, and periodontal disease.” John Cannell Vitamin D Council

“High dietary levels of calcium, when vitamin D is insufficient, may contribute to calcification of the arteries, joints, kidney and perhaps even the brain.”   Fujita et al

     

The association of the increased incidence of arthritis of most types and increasing latitudes, the classic vitamin D association, demonstrates to me that arthritis has a strong Sunshine component. Please make sure you blood levels of vitamin D are at least 60 ng/ml.  

Sunshine

As doctor Seneff tells us sulfur is critical for our heart and brains. A primary source of this sulfur is the cholesterol-sulfate and water soluble vitamin D3 sulfate produced in your skin by sunshine and cholesterol. If you are not getting good vitamin D producing sunshine you MUST explore this sulfur issue and assure you get the sulfate your heart and brain require of your body may steal sulfur from your joints.

Doctor Seneff tells us that if you have let your sulfur supply become depleted  your body may steal the sulfur from your joints.

     

Fish and Fish Oil and Arthritis

“Fish oils are particularly effective in reducing inflammation and can be of great benefit to people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or ulcerative colitis. Daily supplementation with as little as 2.7 grams of EPA and 1.8 grams of DHA can markedly reduce the number of tender joints and increase the time before fatigue sets in. Some studies have also noted a decrease in morning stiffness and at least two clinical trials concluded that arthritis patients who took fish oils could eliminate or sharply reduce their use of NSAIDs and other arthritis drugs.”    Hans R. Larsen, MSc ChE

“In healthy humans and in people with rheumatoid arthritis fish oil suppresses several inflammatory factors by up to 90%.”    James et al

Fish oil has also proven to be beneficial in autoimmune joint conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). While fish oil supplementation has not been used in clinical trials for the treatment of psoriatic arthritis, it may be beneficial in treating this condition, which has many similarities to RA, including a common underlying inflammatory mechanism and immune dysfunction.” Michael Traub, ND, and Keri Marshall MS, ND

“Scientists were first alerted to the many benefits of fish oils in the early 1970s when Danish physicians observed that Greenland Eskimos had an exceptionally low incidence of heart disease and arthritis despite the fact that they consumed a high-fat diet. Intensive research soon discovered that two of the fats (oils) they consumed in large quantities, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), were actually highly beneficial. More recent research has established that fish oils (EPA and DHA) play a crucial role in the prevention of atherosclerosis, heart attack, depression, and cancer. Clinical trials have shown that fish oil supplementation is effective in the treatment of many disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, ulcerative colitis, and Reynaud’s disease.” Fish and Fish Oil

“A Meta analysis appearing in the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology reported that a 3 month course of treatment with fish oil led to a substantial improvement in joint tenderness and morning stiffness.” Fortin et al 1995

“The fatty acids in fish oil, EPA and DHA dramatically improve functional ability and diminish pain in a myriad of diseases, including psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, gout, lupus, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.”     McCarthy 1992

"Omega-3 fatty acids inhibit the inflammation process in OA, whereas glucosamine sulfate further supports the rebuilding of lost cartilage substance.”    Joerg Gruenwald, PhD, Note of course cold water fish oil is a source of omega 3

So profound is omega-3’s healing power that it is beneficial in the treatment and prevention of a variety of medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), asthma, macular degeneration, PMS, and others.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

"Krill oil combined with hyaluronic acid and astaxanthin both of which target pro-inflammatory agents in the body allowed arthritis patients to report a 55% pain reduction in under three  months; with 63% entirely pain-free."   Life Extension

“An omega-3-rich diet from fish or flax could "substantially and significantly" reduce the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis, according to new research. The study, published in the journal Osteoarthritis and Cartilage, claims to be the first to confirm the supposed benefits of omega-3 fatty acids for joint health in an animal model—finding that an omega-3-rich diet fed to guinea pigs that naturally develop osteoarthritis reduced disease by 50% compared to a standard control diet.”   Omega-3 May Prevent or Slow Osteoarthritis

Fish oil has  a very good chance of helping your arthritis, both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis as well as MANY other problems known and unknown to you.

  

Krill Oil and Arthritis

"Krill oil combined with hyaluronic acid and astaxanthin both of which target pro-inflammatory agents in the body allowed arthritis patients to report a 55% pain reduction in under three  months; with 63% entirely pain-free."   Life Extension

"Animal models of experimentally induced arthritis have provided the first supportive data on the value of krill oil as a powerful and safe joint-targeted anti-inflammatory agent. Krill oil works in synergy with fish oil to attack inflammation on multiple levels and optimize arthritis control."   Life Extension

Krill oil is proving to be an important nutrient.

     

Exercise and Arthritis

http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/data/images/table1.png

"A substantial 40.1 percent of men and 56.5 percent of women studied [with knee osteoarthritis] were found to be inactive. While more than half of men engaged in significantly more moderate-to-vigorous activity than women, the majority of men who didn't fall into this category were spending their time in no to very light activity. The fact that so many people with arthritis are inactive should be a wake-up call to physicians."  Science Daily

“Only injury causes arthritis. In a study dogs were exercised wearing jackets carrying 130% of their body weight for one year. NO joint injury was found. Exercise is healthy and does not cause injury if done correctly. If an injury occurs it is important to fully treat it until it is healed. The worst things for healing an injury are to take anti-inflammatories and receive cortisone injections. These are the main reasons so many people have articular cartilage problems.” Doctor Ross Hauser

“Basic animal research has shown that in as little as six days of immobilizing a joint, pressure necrosis of the articular cartilage can occur with subsequent degenerative arthritis. The healing rate is six times greater comparing movement and exercise with immobility in patients with articular cartilage defects. Articular cartilage injuries which are rested have an over 50% chance of causing compromised range of motion of the limb at one year.” Salter 1960

“Arthritis is the result of an injury to a joint that was never allowed to properly heal. A normal joint does not get arthritis. An aging joint does not get arthritis. An exercised-to-death joint does not get arthritis. Only an injured joint gets arthritis.”   Doctor Ross Hauser, Note as Doctor Hauser states the injury itself does NOT cause the arthritis it is the MIS-Treatment of the injured joint that causes the improper healing of the joint that causes arthritis.

Exercise Osteoarthritis Away

    

“Exercise has the opposite effect of cortisone. Exercise has been shown to positively affect articular cartilage by increasing its thickness, enhancing the infusion of nutrients and increasing matrix synthesis.” Doctor Ross Hauser

“Movement, exercise, heat, massage, ultrasound, acupuncture, and physical therapy all improve blood flow and have a positive effect on healing. The best course of action is to allow the body to heal itself.” Doctor Ross Hauser

"New research found clinicians who care for patients with osteoarthritis (OA) are likely not following standard care guidelines that are based on current medical evidence. Researchers noted physicians were prescribing medications for pain and inflammation, or opting for surgical interventions rather than recommending weight loss plans or exercise programs to OA patients. The authors report that therapeutic interventions are primarily aimed at reducing pain and improving joint function by using therapies that target symptoms, but do not facilitate improvement in joint structure or long-term betterment of the disease. Frequently, physicians do not recommend conservative non-pharmacologic management therapies which leads to unnecessary diagnostic imaging and inappropriate referrals to orthopedic surgeons.”   Conservative treatment often NOT used for OA

"Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are two quite different conditions with a common presentation, namely joint pain, swelling, and reduction in movement. People with arthritis are substantially less likely to be able to exercise, which adds to the already elevated risk of heart attack and stroke in these populations.45-49 Fortunately, pomegranate extracts are a promising therapy for both conditions."   Life Extension

"Synovial fluid is produced when the joint moves. But the body is lazy. If there's no joint movement, there's no reason to ooze that synovial fluid out into the joint. As time goes on, the body adapts to not creating synovial fluid, and so it takes a lot more movement to get it flowing again. To help prevent joint stiffness, you want to stop your body from slowing the flow of lubricating fluid. But even non-synovial joints will get stiff if they adapt to not changing position. That means you must move every joint in your body for several minutes at a time; either daily or at least every other day. Plan on a 15-minute movement routine, which is best done early in the morning to get everything moving again after hours of sleep." 2009, Adventure Sports Weekly  Keep Your Joints Youthful

     

I know it is hard to exercise when your joints hurt.  But please examine the above evidence. The FACT is exercise will likely HELP your joints heal. Pomegranate therapy can help your joints to stop aching enough to allow you to exercise.

Try some slow walking. Your body will actually manufacture some GOOD opiates, as opposed to toxic big pharma drugs, that will ease your pain. The more you walk the less you will hurt. Set some simple distances on level ground and constantly increase them as your pain allows. If you are doing most of the things in this protocol for your arthritis the odds are you will be building up your joints and your pain should ease with  time.

As you feel better SLOWLY do more. This is important; your goal should be COMPLETE mobility.

One time my wife suffered a badly broken ankle. She refused a hard cast because she KNEW she might lose ankle function and mobility if she completely rested her ankle. Movement was painful for her but it gradually got easier. Today she has full mobility of her ankle. I am convinced if she had "rested" her ankle, today she would have at least some "arthritis" in it.

    

SAMe and Arthritis

“SAMe treatment may reverse the underlying process of osteoarthritis by stimulating the cartridge to grow.” Barcelo et al

“In a study of 22,000 osteoarthritis patients those taking SAMe improved steadily over the two months of the study. At the end about 80% of those taking SAMe reported improvement; 70% of the patients with the most severe joint pain improved significantly. Side effects were minimal and only 2.3% dropped out because their SAMe was not working.” Italian Study

“SAMe appears to be as effective as NSAIDs in reducing pain and improving functional limitations in patients with osteoarthritis without the adverse effects often associated with NASID therapies.”  Osteoarthritis Metastudy

“SAMe has shown itself to not only alleviate arthritic pain and functional limitation but to also rebuild cartilage.” Soeken et al

SAMe is definitely required if you have arthritis problems or concerns. SAMe is a sulfur bearing substance please note the relation of low sulfur to arthritis below.

     

Sulfur, Sunshine and Arthritis

"In this way [sun exposure], your skin will produce cholesterol sulfate, which will then flow freely through the blood—not packaged up inside LDL—and therefore your liver doesn't have to make so much LDL. So the LDL goes down. In fact... there is a complete inverse relationship between sunlight and cardiovascular disease – the more sunlight, the less cardiovascular disease."   Doctor Stephanie Seneff PhD

Sulfur is essential for both prevention and treatment for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Proteoglycans form a matrix through the joint collagen and are essential as they hold many times their own weight of water, which both lubricates and nourishes the joint. An essential component of proteoglycans is sulfur. If you are low on sulfur Doctor Stephanie Seneff PhD posits your body may steal sulfur from your joints for more critical uses thus contributing to arthritis.

 You can get rid of this potential or existing arthritis problem by supplying your body with sufficient sulfur and sunshine.

     

Boswellia and Arthritis

“Animal studies show that boswellic acid is a potent 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor that has anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effects. Other studies suggest it also has cytotoxic activities.”    Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Note the cytotoxic effect appears to target only cancerous and other damaged cells   

"A highly  purified extract of boswellia has been shown to effectively inhibit excess 5-LOX at the molecular level."   Life Extension, Note the 5-LOX enzyme is associated with much inflammatory disease

"Animal experiments confirmed that boswellia extracts exert a powerful anti-inflammatory effect, particularly in alleviating joint swelling in arthritis."   Life Extension

"In several well controlled human studies boswellia has been shown to be effective in alleviating various chronic inflammatory disorders."    Life Extension

Boswellia has proven its efficacy in joint health and is certainly worth adding to your anti-arthritis arsenal. Boswellia is a KEY component of an anti-inflammatory approach to solving your arthritis and other inflammation problems.

    

Boron and Arthritis

"Boron in the form of calcium fructoborate helps reduce inflammation by modulating multiple elements of the immune system."   Life Extension

“Studies show countries with more boron in the soil and water have fewer cases of osteoarthritis.” De Fabio 1990

”Some clinicians report good results with boron supplements, which appear to relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis up to 90% of the time.” Newnham

"Adding further proof to boron’s beneficial impact on arthritis, researchers have found a connection between dietary intake and incidence of arthritis. In areas of the world where daily boron intake is 1 mg or less, the incidence of arthritis ranges from 20% to as high as 70%. Conversely, in world regions where daily boron intake is 3 to 10 mg, the incidence of arthritis is much lower, ranging from 0 to 10%.30 These findings indicate that adequate boron intake confers powerful protection against osteoarthritis."   Boron Reduces Prostate Cancer Risk

“A boron deficiency may contribute greatly to osteoporosis and menopausal symptoms.”    Murray & Pizzorno

"Avocado is high in the mineral boron. Research indicates that, in addition to preserving bone health, boron may help relieve the debilitating symptoms of osteoarthritis.11 There appears to be an important role for boron in promoting healthy joint structure and function.12"   Avocados Super-Enhanced Carotenoid Absorption

Boron has proven its efficacy in joint health and is certainly worth adding to your anti-arthritis arsenal. Researchers have concluded that countries with lower boron levels in the soil had much more arthritis.  

Boron is a KEY component of an anti-inflammatory approach to solving your arthritis and other inflammation problems.

     

Celery Seed and Arthritis

"Researchers at Michigan State University decided to chemically dissect the deeds, looking for specific compounds with anti-inflammatory ability and they found them!  Several compounds in celery seeds inhibited COX-1 and COX-2 the cellular enzymes that trigger inflammation ... "The biological activities of compounds in celery seeds are in agreement with the antidotal use of celery seeds to alleviate gout and arthritic pain." wrote the researchers in Phytomedicine."   Healing Spices

"Traditional healers have used celery seed to treat  upper respiratory diseases such as colds, bronchitis, flu, and asthma as well as indigestion, water retention and liver disease. Today celery seed is best known as a home remedy for the pain and inflammation of arthritis including its toe-torturing form, gout."   Healing Spices

"Celery might help treat gout by modulating uric acid levels. Egyptian researchers tested the effects of different plant extracts, including celery seed, on uric acid levels in rats induced with gout. At the end of the study, rats with gouty arthritis treated with celery seed extracts experienced a 56% reduction in uric acid levels, the highest of all the plant extracts.23Additional research shows that celery seeds might have potential use in alleviating inflammation and pain associated with gout. A study reported in the journal Phytomedicine revealed that celery seeds can provide dramatic pain relief by suppressing cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), an enzyme involved in the synthesis of pro-inflammatory cells.24"   Time to Celebrate Celery 

No question about it if you have any form of arthritis or are concerned in PREVENTING arthritis you should be ingesting at least one heaping teaspoon of anti-inflammatory phytonutrient rich celery seed a day.

     

Try Cod Liver Oil

"Our most recent work shows that by exposing human osteoarthritic cartilage to cod liver oil in the laboratory for just 24 hours we can turn off or reverse the action of the deleterious enzymes and inflammatory factors affecting the tissue."   Professor Bruce Caterson

People have been taking Cod Liver Oil for joint and arthritic pain for hundreds of years. Could it be the vitamin D; or perhaps the vitamin A; or could it be enzymes in the cod liver oil itself? All of these things should help with arthritis so I say take the cod liver oil itself.

   

Cherries and Osteoarthritis

"20 tart cherries contain 25 mg of anthocyanins, enough to block the COX-2 enzymes that make arthritic joints hurt, while reducing inflammation the same way that NSAID drugs do.”    Michigan State University

"At Baylor University, scientists conducted a small study testing the effect of cherry extract on people with arthritis. Five out of six participants experienced significant relief, without side effects. After a mere three months, at least one participant claimed her pain had completely disappeared. Once she stopped the cherry extract, her pain returned, which is why she’s now drinking 100% unsweetened cherry juice and enjoying fresh cherries every chance she gets.”

"Cherries are a natural cleansing agent to help flush poisons from the system by stimulating activity in the kidneys, bladder, and colon where most discharge of wastes takes place."   John Heinerman

Cherries are a proven tonic for osteoarthritis.

      

Avocados

"Chemists have known for years that the unsaponifiables of soy and avocado are rich in anti-inflammatory chemicals called plant sterols. Could these anti-inflammatory chemicals help your joints? A team of European researchers decided to put it to the test. What they found amazed them: Not only did the extracts reduce inflammation, but they actually helped re-generate cartilage.”     Doctor Robert Rowen MD, Note WOW avocado for joint rebuilding!

One more reason to make avocados a staple in your diet.

   

 Cruciferous Vegetables and Arthritis

"Broccoli is one of the most therapeutic foods on the planet, offering more nutrition per calorie than any other food. A prominent member of the cruciferous family of vegetables, broccoli plays an important role in the Arthritis Healing Diet. It offers significant arthritis relief because it is loaded with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant substances, including sulforaphane, vitamin C, vitamin K, beta carotene, calcium, and the pain-reliever salicylic acid.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

"Sulforaphane is activated when broccoli is chewed. When you break the plant’s cells, the chemical is formed. Diindolylmethane (DIM) is also produced as a consequence of chewing and digesting broccoli. Studies demonstrate DIM’s ability to stimulate proteins that help regulate the immune system. This is important news for those with RA, because the immune system is intimately involved in this inflammatory condition. And broccoli sprouts contain 50 times the sulforaphane found in the mature vegetable, endowing one ounce of sprouts with as much antioxidant power as three pounds of fully grown broccoli. Broccoli sprouts are so tasty even kids will eat them.”    Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

"Vitamin K may also slow and prevent OA. Broccoli is also an exceptional source of vitamin K, with one cup offering 194% of the daily recommendation. Increasing your K intake, according to a study published in Arthritis and Rheumatism, could help lower the risk of OA in hands and knees by a whopping 40%. The Arthritis Foundation believes vitamin K boosts the action of proteins, which build and strengthen cartilage and bone. K also seems to reduce the pain-triggering inflammation in joints, while enhancing the ability of cartilage to withstand wear and tear.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

"Broccoli is rich in selenium, too. Researchers tracking more than 900 people found those with low selenium levels in their blood had almost double the risk of developing severe arthritis. The selenium most usable by the body is called selenium methyl selenocysteine— and the food richest in this compound is broccoli. Another selenium champ is garlic.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

The cruciferous vegetables are sulfur bearing note the above two topics. Sulfur seems to have a vary important role in arthritis.

           

To Prevent Arthritis a la Doctor Hauser and Moi

"New research found clinicians who care for patients with osteoarthritis (OA) are likely not following standard care guidelines that are based on current medical evidence. Researchers noted physicians were prescribing medications for pain and inflammation, or opting for surgical interventions rather than recommending weight loss plans or exercise programs to OA patients. The authors report that therapeutic interventions are primarily aimed at reducing pain and improving joint function by using therapies that target symptoms, but do not facilitate improvement in joint structure or long-term betterment of the disease. Frequently, physicians do not recommend conservative non-pharmacologic management therapies which leads to unnecessary diagnostic imaging and inappropriate referrals to orthopedic surgeons.”   Conservative treatment often NOT used for OA

“Avoiding grains, wheat, and anything else containing gluten may be one more step you can take to cooling the fire in your joints naturally.”   Doctor Al Sears MD

“Researchers followed a group of people with rheumatoid arthritis. They were put on a gluten-free diet. After just 14 weeks, most of the patients reported dramatic improvements in their symptoms."    Arthritis-and-Celiac-Disease

"The combination of three healing herbs—Chinese skullcap, cutch tree and white mulberry—has the potential to change the osteoarthritis landscape. Studies show that each extract provides anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. Together, the herbal combinations have been shown to reduce markers of cartilage degradation and joint destruction. As with any approach that offers prevention and relief of symptoms, the earlier you start, the better the long-term protective effect."   Plant Compounds that Reduce Joint Cartilage Loss

Your Joints need Looking after

       

Get Doctor Ross Hauser’s Prolotherapy Book

This book is an excellent introduction to the basics of ALL Joint Health including Arthritis. This book will also bring you up to speed in many aspects of your musculoskeletal, pain control and other aspects of your health. Prolo your pain away. In many respects it’s a very specialized book but I am sure glad Thanks to Doctor Robert Rowen I ran into it; it ties together neatly MANY aspects of good health.

    

Gout and Osteoarthritis

The symptoms of gout can often be interpreted as the symptoms of osteoarthritis. This is often my case. For example I like many foods which will give me gout symptoms if eaten in too great an amount. When I get a touch in my hands I will often figure out I have been eating too much of a gout food. So make sure you do not have both gout and osteoarthritis and if you do you must be a little more of a detective.

     

Wheat and NSAIDs a Special Arthritis Problem

"The common consumption of both wheat and NSAIDs may suggest the frequency of the 'wheat germ agglutinin’ (WGA) vicious cycle. Anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen and aspirin, increase intestinal permeability and may cause absorption of even larger than normal quantities of pro-inflammatory WGA. Conversely, the inflammation caused by the absorption of WGA lectin is the very reason there is a great need for the inflammation-reducing effects of NSAIDs."   The Critical Role of Wheat Lectin in Human Disease

Note the key interplay between our "staff of life" and the common pain palliative NSAIDs. Avoiding wheat may be somewhat of a problem but avoiding the deadly NSAIDs is simple. If you have arthritis avoiding the wheat may be a necessary step to driving the scourge out.

   

Wheat and Arthritis

“Researchers followed a group of people with rheumatoid arthritis. They were put on a gluten-free diet. After just 14 weeks, most of the patients reported dramatic improvements in their symptoms."    Arthritis-and-Celiac-Disease

“Avoiding grains, wheat, and anything else containing gluten may be one more step you can take to cooling the fire in your joints naturally.”   Doctor Al Sears MD

Often wheat and its gluten is a problem with arthritis. Try going without for a few months.

       

Wheat is a Major Allergen. Please examine Wheat in Relation to YOUR Arthritis problems. For up to 90 million of us Wheat could be a large factor in arthritis.

         

Digestion and Arthritis

Often too little stomach acid and other digestive problems can result in arthritis like symptoms. This is often a difficult problem to diagnose. Please make sure your digestion is in top shape or all the foods and supplements in the world will not be able to help you.

    

Arthritis is a Cooked Food Disease

"Francis M. Pottenger, MD. did nutritional experiments on hundreds of cats over a period of two decades. He found that cats fed our typical cooked diet did in fact develop many degenerative diseases, including arthritis. What is especially interesting is that Dr. Pottenger found you could reverse the condition by feeding the animals only fresh, raw foods."      Weston Price Foundation

"Arthritis is a cooked food disease. It is an undisputed fact that indigenous people living directly off the land eat mostly raw food and have no arthritis. By cooking food we destroy the live, active enzymes and vitamins in our food." .

"Researchers found those getting the most vitamin C were three times less likely to develop arthritis of the knee as those who got the least vitamin C."   Prevention, Note cooking destroys most vitamin C

Cooked foods usually have No enzymes and there seems to often be a strong enzyme component to arthritis.

If you do eat cooked foods often make sure you ingest supplemental digestive enzymes with the few cooked foods you eat. Please read up on all aspects of enzymes and assure your body is topped up on enzymes. Cooking also destroys much of the vitamin C, sulfur and many other nutrients in a food.

Many healers believe  just not eating cooked foods may greatly help many arthritic victims. I have seen it work too many times to not be a believer myself. Try it for a month or so. It is not easy but if your arthritis is hurting enough you should be motivated.

If you do not have the will power, try it with your arthritic pets. Success with an arthritic pet may convince you to stick it out. Feeding an arthritic carnivore pet RAW meat has produced good results in under one month. Eating RAW can do the same for you also.

         

Vitamin C and Arthritis

“Studies show that people who are low in C may be at increased risk for arthritis because C is a necessary nutrient for healthy collagen and the cartilage it creates and protects. Vitamin C is also effective in healing arthritis because, as an antioxidant, it is a front-line defense against free radical damage to joints. It also facilitates the absorption of calcium, another benefit for weak joints.”   Doctor Steven Sinatra MD

“While one study suggests that high doses of supplemental vitamin C makes osteoarthritis, a type of degenerative arthritis that occurs with aging, worse in laboratory animals, another indicates that vitamin C-rich foods, such as lemons and limes, provide humans with protection against inflammatory polyarthritis, a form of rheumatoid arthritis involving two or more joints. The findings, presented in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases were drawn from a study of more than 20,000 subjects who kept diet diaries and were arthritis-free when the study began, and focused on subjects who developed inflammatory polyarthritis and similar subjects who remained arthritis-free during the follow-up period. Subjects who consumed the lowest amounts of vitamin C-rich foods were more than three times more likely to develop arthritis than those who consumed the highest amounts.”   Note this shows "supplemental vitamin C" is NOT usually vitamin C but ascorbic acid and that FOODS contain the whole Vitamin C Complex Components

Sunshine, Vitamin D and Arthritis

The simple primal act of getting LOTS of the high noon sun on your bare “unprotected” skin in large amounts just may be the most important single thing you can do for your health. If the sun casts a shadow longer than you are tall you cannot make adequate vitamin D from the sun. You MUST take vitamin D3 at the daily rate of about 1000 IU/20 pounds of body weight.

    

“Current research indicates vitamin D deficiency plays a role in causing seventeen varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, and periodontal disease.” John Cannell Vitamin D Council

“High dietary levels of calcium, when vitamin D is insufficient, may contribute to calcification of the arteries, joints, kidney and perhaps even the brain.”   Fujita et al

"Lack of sunshine and insufficient vitamin D appear to be significant factors in causing arthritis61,62 which generally progresses to involve other joints. Arthritis has a low incidence in sunny countries and a north/south gradient63. Randomized trials have shown that symptoms of arthritis are reduced by vitamin D supplements and progress of the disease is slowed by vitamin D."   Good Vitamin D Treatise

The association of the increased incidence of arthritis of most types and increasing latitudes, the classic vitamin D association, demonstrates to me that arthritis has a strong Sunshine component. Please make sure you blood levels of vitamin D are at least 60 ng/ml.  

Sunshine

As doctor Seneff tells us sulfur is critical for our heart and brains. A primary source of this sulfur is the cholesterol-sulfate and water soluble vitamin D3 sulfate produced in your skin by sunshine and cholesterol. If you are not getting good vitamin D producing sunshine you MUST explore this sulfur issue and assure you get the cholesterol-sulfate your heart and brain require of your body may steal sulfur from your joints.

If you have let your sulfur supply become depleted  your body may steal the sulfur from your joints.

     

Food Allergies the Big Five and Arthritis

"The best defense against allergies to begin with is a varied and healthful diet from which all refined and stimulating foods sugar, white flour, refined and hydrogenated vegetable oils, refined salt and caffeine have been eliminated and which supplies  the intestinal tract with lactic acid producing bacteria and enzymes on a frequent basis."   Sally Fallon

"Large numbers of people, perhaps even the majority of the population, are adversely affected by gluten on some level. Grains and sugars are inherently pro-inflammatory and will worsen any condition that has chronic inflammation at its root -- and not just inflammation in your gut, but anywhere in your body. In fact, if you want to avoid heart disease, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes or even cancer, you will want to severely limit your grain consumption, or avoid grains entirely.”    Doctor Joseph Mercola MD

“There is not a single peer-reviewed study on the safety of GMOs in humans. Nearly every independent animal feeding safety study on GMOs not funded by the biotechnology/GMO industry demonstrates adverse or unexplained health effects including: infertility; reduced litter sizes; birth defects; impaired growth; disrupted organ development; damaged immune systems;  increased death rate; bleeding stomachs; shortened life span; damaged heart, liver, spleen, kidneys; and altered nutrient metabolism. It’s been well-documented that numerous animals, given the choice, will not consume GMOs.”     GMO Franken Foods     

    

Five foods MANY people are allergic to and often have great results when they simply stop all ingestion are  1) GMO 2) sugar 3) dairy and 4) gluten found mostly in 5) wheat. GMO "foods" are actually in a special class all by  themselves; we are ALL allergic to these poisons and must ALL stop eating them.

If you are having any arthritis problems IMO you MUST cease eating these five as a part of your solution. The odds are well over 75% one or more of them are at least part of your problem. Arthritis is a complex and often many rooted problem, eliminating any POSSIBLE cause often pays big dividends.
