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 Ben Gay, a white pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory rubbing lotion. She would stroke Dan Gay on her wrists and joints and her muscles as well.
- As a little boy, I did not understand disease.
- I didn't 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 on me in the late 1990s, I finally recognized why Grandma Sis (Bertha) developed and suffered from arthritis. You see, my grandmother was originally in the South,Mississippi to be exact. 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 nights and years in which tasted better than my paternal grandmother's food/cooking. However, even though 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 dietary.
Was Grandma's great tasting spirit food that did her together with arthritis and tendonitis. Yes, all that cornbread, collard and mustard greens, salt pork, candied yams, toast 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, 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 think about that hot cocoa, java (laced with white sugar and dairy cream), butter milk, pet milk, Kool-Aid, and soda pop in which she drunk?
- She didn't smoke cigarettes such as the woman's five sons, however 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 embarrassing 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 due to 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 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" signifies "joints," and theEnglish suffix, "it is" means "inflammation." What exactly is inflammation? A burning! Acne breakouts this using up or inflammation? ACID!!! Plain and simple!
Grandma Sis has been lucky, eventually dying from degeneracy (that doctors call natural death). However, her sons (and daughter-in-laws, nephews, nieces, and grandchildren) were not therefore lucky, passing away from your insidious cancer, including my father from lung cancer inside 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 me off when I was a Muslim and member of the Nation of Islam in early 1990s, simply declaring "that boy is mad at white folks and the world!" But today as 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 African american folks, Negroes, and spirit food lovers! But this is true! Greens are laced with "oxalic" acid and this oxalic acid is greatly created when you make 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 a person thinking soul your meals are the cause of arthritis, because a lot of white folks, Mexicans/Latinos, andAsians also suffer from arthritis. Like spirit food, the StandardAmerican Diet will also result in arthritis. Arthritis is anAmerican disease!
- You understand arthritis, you should understand tendonitis and also gout.
- They are acidic 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 to heal themselves with herbal treatments (Revelations 22:2,Ezekiel 47:12, and Pslams 104:14), in their strange obedience toGod, they make enemy's pharmaceutical drugs that avoid the osteoarthritis. Why and how? Because pharmaceutical grade drugs, though made from alkaloids, eventually break down straight into ACIDespecially ascetic acid, which eats your red blood cells up) by the body processes, as well as acid produces inflammation, so how intelligent is it to take something to target the symptom that eventually lengthens and intensify the initial condition?
Mother Nature Has Provided Recovery for Arthritis and Other Inflammatory Diseases
In order to heal from joint disease, all one needs to consume is certain herbs. Herbs that are anti-inflammatory anyway are the best to be able to recover from arthritis. These herbal remedies includeMeadowsweet, Pepper mint, Wintergreen, Birch, White and BlackWillow Bark as well as 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.
Fighting Gout With Diet The extremely painful condition called gout is caused by the sufferer s blood having too high a level of uric acids. Uric acid is a waste product that results from the breakdown of purines. Purines are naturally occurring ingredients found in the...
- Devil's Claw, Boswellia, Uva Ursi, and Mullein would be the paramount arthritis herbal treatments.
- They greatly counteract mucus, which is the consequence of acid, that causes inflammation.
- Organic sulfur, commonly referred to as MSM Sulfur, can be great in healing arthritis.
- So is Noni juice!
You can make your own healing salve as well from a base butter or oil such as shea or 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 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 every one of the herbal treatments mentioned above that is a powerful little formula that works wonders for me when my wrists start to harm from excessive typing (typing up 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 so that healing can begin.
My good friend and brother, Mark Lomax, a musician, healed himself from serious bouts of gout, another acid condition. It has 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 Black Cherry Juice Concentrate. Make use of recognize this brother if you knew him 3 years ago. He also lost over 70 lbs on these 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 and also effect and therefore provide healing for arthritis.
- They taste the same as candy and are chewable and you can gnaw as much as you like, although 3-6 tablets after dinner should to get the job done.
- You can find Bromelain essentially great health food stores.
Soaking inflamed body parts in hot water and essential oils ofPeppermint and Eucalyptus can be 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 eliminate acid accumulation in the joints. By all means, stay away from all acidic beverages beer, soda pop, milk, orange juice, wine, espresso, etc.).
Man, Life is So Wonderful When You Know How to Heal 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 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 kind of 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 compel me to eat a piece of chicken or pork today, and I mean that! I really like 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 prior to and while conceiving them. It is possible too!
- Make the change people!
- Taste is not the criterion for what is healthy.
- Nutritional content is!
