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 cream. She would caress Dan Gay on her wrists and joints as well as her muscles also.
- As a little boy, I failed to 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 the Akashic Records of health knowledge after me in the late 1990s, I finally understood why Grandma Sis (Bertha) developed and suffered from arthritis. You see, my grandmother was originally from the South,Mississippi to be specific. The ideal dinner was "soul food." My grandmother was an outstanding make and I never tasted any kind of food back in my personal 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 nutritional. It was Grandma's good tasting soul food that did her in with arthritis and tendonitis. Yes, all that cornbread, collard and mustard greens, salt pork, candied yams, fried chicken, 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, refined 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 forth. And how about that warm powdered cocoa, coffee (laced with white sugar and dairy cream), butter milk, pet milk, Kool-Aid, and soda pop that she drunk?
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 ...
She didn't smoke cigarettes like the woman's five sons, yet she would move 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 uncomfortable 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 brought on by what she had 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 situation in my grandmother as well.
- She also had bouts with gout, which is nothing but joint disease in the ankle area.
You See, Arthritis is a Condition of Inflammation of the Joints
That's just about all it is. The Latin word "Arth" indicates "joints," as well as theEnglish suffix, "it is" means "inflammation." What is inflammation? A burning! Acne breakouts 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 so lucky, passing away from the 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 eliminates them. It was easy to write me off when I was a Muslim and member of the Nation of Islam noisy 1990s, simply declaring "that boy is mad at white folks and the world!" But today like a Naturist, what's their excuse? Only 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 African american folks, Negroes, and heart and soul food lovers! But this is true! Greens are laced with "oxalic" acid and this oxalic acid is greatly created when you cook the greens. 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 an individual thinking soul food is 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 trigger arthritis. Osteoarthritis is anAmerican disease!
- You understand arthritis, you should understand tendonitis and 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. Even though God instructed Bible believers to be able to heal themselves with herbal treatments (Revelations 22:2,Ezekiel 47:12, and Pslams 104:14), in their strange obedience toGod, they go ahead and take 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 red blood cells up) in the body, and also acid generates inflammation, so how intelligent is it to take something to target the symptom that eventually lengthens and aggravate the initial condition?
Mother Nature Has Provided Recovery for Arthritis and Other Inflammatory Illnesses
To heal from arthritis, all one needs to consume is certain herbs. Herbal treatments that are anti-inflammatory anyway are the best to be able to recover from arthritis. These herbs includeMeadowsweet, Pepper mint, 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 occur 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 herbal treatments.
- They greatly counteract mucus, which is the resultant effect of acid, which causes inflammation.
- Organic sulfur, commonly referred to as MSM Sulfur, can be great in healing arthritis.
- So is Noni juice!
You will make your own recovery salve as well from a base butter or oil such as shea or 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 wonders for me when my wrists start to hurt from excessive typing (typing up everything legal pleading).
- Can not forget about magnet remedy 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 and brother, Mark Lomax, a music performer, relieved himself from severe bouts of gout, another acid condition. It has been a few years now given that 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), Joint parts Formula and African american Cherry Juice Concentrate. Make use of 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 illustration 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 so 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 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 osteoarthritis.
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 remove acid accumulation in the joints. By all means, avoid all acidic beverages beer, soda pop, milk, orange juice, wine, coffee, and so on.).
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 sorrow from my knowledge and knowing that people suffer from a lack of knowledge (and insanity too). See 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 for the West Coast within 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 particular health information and knowledge that is openly 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 force me to eat a piece of chicken or pork today, and I mean that! I enjoy myself too much to harm my temple of The almighty. 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!
- Style is not the criterion for what is healthy.
- Dietary content is!
