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 did not 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 its Akashic Records of health knowledge upon me in the late 1990s, I finally recognized 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 virtually any food back in my deaf, dumb, and blind days 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.
Was Grandma's excellent tasting heart and soul food that did her together with arthritis and tendonitis. Yes, all that cornbread, collard and mustard greens, salt pork, candied yams, fried poultry, 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 on. And think about everything very hot cacao, espresso (laced with white sugar and dairy cream), butter milk, pet milk, Kool-Aid, and soda pop which she drunk?
She didn't smoke cigarettes just like the woman's five sons, but she would rotate up her own smokes with Prince Albert brand tobacco and ZigZag paper. My childhood friends thought my grandmother smoked marijuana. It was a little awkward until they found out what it was she was really smoking.
Mentioned all of the above in order 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 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 joint disease in the ankle area.
You See, Arthritis is a Condition of Inflammation of the Joints
That's all it is. The Latin word "Arth" signifies "joints," and also theEnglish suffix, "it is" means "inflammation." What is inflammation? A burning! Acne breakouts this using up or inflammation? ACID!!! Plain and simple!

Grandma Sis Was Lucky, Eventually Dying from Degeneracy (that Doctors Call Natural Death)
However, her sons (and daughter-in-laws, nephews, nieces, as well as grandchildren) were not so lucky, perishing from the insidious cancer, including my personal father from lung cancer in 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 gets rid of all of them. It was easy to write myself off when I was a Muslim and member of the Nation of Islam noisy 1990s, simply saying "that boy is mad at white folks and the world!" But today like a Naturist, what's their excuse? Nothing but ignorance and also 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 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 available, your precious chocolate also contains oxalic acid.
Now, I don't want an individual thinking soul your meals are the cause of arthritis, because a lot of white folks, Mexicans/Latinos, andAsians also suffer from arthritis. Like soul food, the particular StandardAmerican Diet will also trigger arthritis. Joint disease is anAmerican disease!
- You realize arthritis, you should understand tendonitis and gout.
- They are citrus 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 God instructed Bible believers in order to heal themselves with herbal remedies (Revelations 22:2,Ezekiel 47:12, and Pslams 104:14), in their odd obedience toGod, they go ahead and take enemy's pharmaceutical drugs that prolong the osteoarthritis. Why and how? Because pharmaceutical drug grade drugs, though made from alkaloids, eventually break down straight into ACIDespecially ascetic acid, which eats your redcolored blood vessels cells up) in the body, and also acid produces inflammation, so how intelligent is it to take something to target the symptom which eventually lengthens and intensify the initial condition?
Mother Nature Has Provided Therapeutic for Arthritis and Other Inflammatory Conditions
To heal from arthritis, all one needs to consume is certain herbs. Herbs that are anti-inflammatory as the name indicated are the best to be able to recover from arthritis. These herbs 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.
Tips on Preventing Gout The major cause of gout is the accumulation of uric acid in the joints. The uric acid is a chemical that is a natural part of the normal breakdown and build up of food in body tissues. The level of uric acid may be found and measured in the...
- Devil's Claw, Boswellia, Uva Ursi, and also Mullein are the paramount arthritis herbs.
- They greatly counteract mucus, which is the byproduct of acid, which in turn causes inflammation.
- Organic sulfur, commonly known as MSM Sulfur, can be great in healing arthritis.
- So is Noni juice!
You could make your own recovery salve as well from a base butter or oil such as shea or perhaps cocoa butter, coconut, olive, or almond oil (or every 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 the 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 herbal remedies mentioned above that is a powerful little formula that works wonders for me when my wrists start to harm from excessive typing (typing up everything legal pleading).
- Cannot forget about magnet treatment as well for arthritis.
- Magnets make a problem or injured area alkaline and also enhances circulation to be able to the problem area so that healing can begin.
My good friend and also brother, Mark Lomax, a musician and performer, relieved himself from severe bouts of gout, another acid condition. It has been a few years now since he had gout. What did he do? First, he detoxified his body on our Full Body Cleanse. Then, this individual did a daily regimen of our Electric Greens Cellular Food (pure alkalinity), Important joints Formula and Black Cherry Juice Concentrate. Would you recognize this brother if you knew him 3 years ago. He also lost 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 as well as effect and therefore provide healing for arthritis.
- They taste the same as 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 at most good health food stores.
Soaking inflamed body parts in hot water and essential oils ofPeppermint and Eucalyptus is also beneficial 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 remove acid build up in the important joints. By all means, stay away from all acidic liquids beer, soda pop, milk, orange juice, wine, java, etc.).
Man, Life is So Wonderful When You Know How to Cure and Forestall 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). 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 inside LosAngeles) will all benefit from this profound knowledge of proper diet as well as from my 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 kind of 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 couldn't put a gun to my head and compel me to eat a piece of chicken or pork today, and I mean that! I love myself too much to harm my temple of God. My children are beautiful (and highly astute and precocious)because of what their parents ate prior to and while conceiving them. You can do it too!
- Make the change people!
- Style is not the criterion for what is healthy.
- Nutritional content is!
