A cleansing routine that can cure advanced arthritis in three weeks — if you're tough enough to handle it.
SCHULZE: I've seen different natural healers cure arthritis with various juice fasting regimes, but the late Paavo Airola's arthritis people got better faster than anybody. It's because Paavo Airola didn't mind the pain they would go through during their healing process. He fasted them on citrus juice and apple cider vinegar. Now, the idea is that apple cider vinegar and the citrus juices are very high in organic acids and those organic acids wash and clean your joints. And there's a lot to that. They flush out the inorganic acids, the uric acids, etc. He would take people out of wheelchairs and I would see them marching in three weeks. He'd kick their ass, and they'd be crying.
Interviewer: What do you mean, kick their a##?
SCHULZE: I mean, he'd kick them in the a## if they wouldn't get up to help. He said, "Now come on, we're going to march today." If they wouldn't, he'd kick them. He'd get them out of the wheelchair and throw the wheelchair down the hill. He didn't take no for an answer. He had that typical European intensity. And he'd fast them on orange juices and apple cider vinegar and you'd even hear them crying at night, some of them. They were in such pain.
Interviewer: How much vinegar and how much juice?
SCHULZE: A couple of tablespoons in an 8-16 oz. glass of water 3, 4, 5 times a day.
And, along with that, a citrus juice fast. He didn't always just use oranges. I mean, we're talking lemons and limes, which are stronger. My wife will take three whole organic limes and put them in a blender and fill it with distilled water and blend it, peel and all, and we'll have that as a lime drink. And that will do it. She's a gouty-type person, and when she goes out, she gets pain in her knees from running and stuff. This takes it right away. Dr. Jensen sometimes wouldn't use citrus with arthritics because he said it's too intense. He used other juices. It worked fine. His people got better in six months. See the difference!
Interviewer: And Airola got them better how fast?
SCHULZE: Three weeks. I saw the turnaround so quick, okay?
Interviewer: So that's why they say citrus promotes reactions, because it's too intense.
SCHULZE: Yes, it's too intense. It hurts as these joints are cleaning. So why do the slow program? If you're going to be uncomfortable, why not be uncomfortable for 3 weeks — and then be well? We've had a lot of people come through here. They couldn't move their hands, they couldn't hold a pen, they couldn't hold their pen and write their name, and their hands were actually fixated claws.
And we cured them using everything I've talked about, plus the deep tissue repair herbs we'll get into in a moment. But the big thing with arthritis is that people are looking for that one magic herb that will cure them. And it's true, one or two of these herbs work, but you have to add the programs with it. That's why I say to people, Dr. Christopher called his book The School of Natural Healing — not the Great American Herbal. He used foods, cleansing, emotions, hydrotherapy — not just herbs.
Interviewer: What would you do in a hopeless arthritic case?
SCHULZE: The first thing is you've got to get off of all foods that are acid-forming. Which means the mucusless diet. (see links in other post) Which I call the purifying or health building diet. Raw foods, raw food until the arthritis is better and juice fasting and raw foods. You can't have any animals, any dairy, any fish, any beef, anything that contains uric acid in the muscles or the fluids and that will build-up in the system. A lot of people get confused on the matter of ph. It doesn't matter what something tests as far as ph.
(note from knowledge seeker-the mucusless diet was what Dr christiopher believed in and it contains mall amounts of clean animal foods while Schulze, his student, believes in a vegan, raw diet)
Interviewer: You mean what it does in the body?
SCHULZE: Yes, what it does in the body. The highest acidic ph foods, like lemons and limes, are the most alkalizing for the body. It doesn't have anything to do with the ph...
Interviewer: You put them on that diet?
SCHULZE: Yeah, I put them on a lot of citrus, and if you're not going to use that, apple and grape works very well. But a lot of juice fasting.
Interviewer: Even for weeks at a time?
SCHULZE: Yeah, I've done two 30-day juice fasts and one 60-day juice fast.
Interviewer: With whom?
SCHULZE: Myself, personally.
Interviewer: What was it like?
SCHULZE: On the 28th day of my first 30-day juice fast, I kick-boxed seventeen rounds and no one could touch me. I had more energy than I've ever had in my life. So forget this stuff about not having energy or being weak or whatever. Where did I get my B-12, my protein? Who cares, who knows? I lived on juices, twice, for 30 days.
Interviewer: And you didn't turn to skin and bones?
SCHULZE: I lost weight, but not a dramatic amount. You level off after awhile.
Interviewer: Have you cured hopeless arthritics?
SCHULZE: Oh, absolutely.
Interviewer: I mean what did they look like?
SCHULZE: Wheelchairs. When I taught out West, I saw people in wheelchairs. I would wheel them right next to a glacier that melted. A stream ran down, as wide as this house, of frozen water. I use to take people in their wheelchairs and wheel them right into that stream.
Interviewer: What did you do that for?
SCHULZE: Just to stimulate their body. Frozen water, just to stimulate their body. It's like a hot and cold shower, but better. It's a shock. Of course, it's great if you have arthritis: ice packs, heat packs, hot and cold water. Stimulate that circulation.
Interviewer: Shock treatment to the body?
SCHULZE: Oh, it was wonderful. Just wonderful, and we used to prescribe a lot of hot and cold showers. Hydrotherapy.
Interviewer: You used hot and cold showers? Was it too brutal?
SCHULZE: You know, all my patients do it. I got a four-year-old kid doing the hot and cold.
Interviewer: So you do the ice packs with the arthritis and then you switch to heat?
SCHULZE: Hot and cold on the joints works really well.
Interviewer: When you say cold, do you mean ice cubes?
SCHULZE: Ice packs. Eight to ten minutes of ice, then hot water or hot packs, for eight to ten minutes. You can do it a long time at nights, for several hours if you need to. You still do the hot and cold shower routine. But this ice, then heat, stimulates the blood flow better than anything.
Interviewer: And it doesn't cause blood vessels to burst? Because of the violence of the temperature changes?
SCHULZE: No. No, not at all. In fact, they do it on animals. You go to a race track and they are icing the legs and heating the legs of the horses all the time for better blood flow. People just don't do it anymore. I had one orthopedic doctor suggest a contrast bath for me once in my life. I said, "What's that?" Well, he goes, 'A little hot and cold". It was something orthopedic doctors used all the time, but they don't use it any more. They now regard it as medical history, not something you actually do for people.
Interviewer: You mentioned deep tissue repair herbs for arthritis. What are they?
SCHULZE: Yes, but this is something that nobody even knows about except me. This is, you might say, a triple step beyond cayenne ointment for relieving arthritis pain.
As you know, cayenne pepper has already been proven to reduce pain and inflammation. The trouble is, traditional cayenne ointments you get in the drugstores are pathetically weak, and made of synthetic ingredients. The old-time heating and healing ointments don't exist anymore, so I'm going to show your readers how to make one. In a moment, I'll give you and your readers the formula and instructions, but first, let me tell you how I got into this. I'm not an arthritic, but I did need something for myself.
When I began, I made the ointment for myself; I wasn't even thinking about what it would do for arthritics. When I first made the cayenne ointment, I took it because I was in Karate. I spent 22 years in the martial arts. I got 3 black belts in different martial arts. I have broken and ripped everything. In 1971,1 was the champion brick-breaker of New York State.
So, I wanted a rub but I couldn't find one strong enough — or one made with natural whole herbs — not chemical imitations. All the preparations today used to be made from wintergreen oil, which is scientifically called methyl-salicylate, because it contains about 95% salicylic acid.
They also used to be made from peppermint, which is now called menthol. Now-a-days, they don't use wintergreen anymore, they make it from boiling coal in sulfuric acid. It's phenol or carbolic acid. And the peppermint oil is also synthesized. First of all, you don't have herbs anymore, second of all, the amounts they are putting in are not effective.
So I wanted one that was made the original way, with wintergreen oil, peppermint oil, and also cayenne. In Europe, they use cayenne, ginger and mustard like Dr. Christopher did, to stimulate the blood flow. In fact, when you go skiing in the United States, they have this warm feet powder you put it in your socks. It's just cayenne pepper and mustard.
Cayenne pepper, mustard, and ginger stimulate the blood flow, internally or externally. So I soaked wintergreen and peppermint oil in there and I put in cayenne, ginger and mustard and made a heating balm. I took it to Dr. Christopher and said, "Here, Dr. Christopher, here's my heating balm." He goes, "Great!" He opened it up, and it was a one-ounce jar and he put his finger to the bottom, and took the whole ounce and went and put it in his mouth. And I said, "Dr. Christopher, no, don't put it in your mouth." And he goes, "Why not?" And I go, "Because it's for the outside of your body." He goes, "Is there anything in this that I shouldn't be putting in my mouth?"
I knew right there it was a test. His rule was never make anything to go inside or outside that you can't put inside or vice-versa. I thought about it and I thought there isn't anything you can't eat. It's olive oil and beeswax, the base he taught me to make every ointment of. And peppermint oil, wintergreen oil, cayenne, ginger and mustard. He said, "Very good." He loved it.
The base of it is wintergreen oil, which is almost pure salicylic acid, the greatest anti-inflammatory for arthritis. You can find L.A. Dodgers pouring it on their arms. I also put pure peppermint oil and peppermint in because they are the greatest anti-irritants. So this formula stimulates blood flow to the area, and reduces swelling and pain.
But now it gets even better. You add arnica, St. John's wort, and marigold, three yellow flowers which are the greatest trauma herbs for damaged, bruised, or traumatized tissues — as you have in arthritis. The key to this is really rubbing it in. If you want, take a hot shower before, and then you put this on. It may be uncomfortable for a little bit because it's seriously hot, but what a healing! Just make sure not to get it in your eyes, or near your genitals.
This is a deep tissue repair formula for muscle, tendon, ligaments, cartilage, joint and bone healing. This drives the circulation better than anything you can use externally. Here is the formula for the tissue repair oil. Every arthritic needs to know how to make it, if necessary. It not only reduces pain, but it actually heals hurting tissue.
32 oz. Wintergreen oil
16 oz. Olive oil extra virgin
12 oz. Menthol crystals
1 cup Arnica flowers dried
1 cup St. John's Wort flowers dried
1 cup Marigold flowers dried
1/2 cup Cayenne pepper, powdered (Habeneros, i.e., the hottest you can find.)
1/2 cup Ginger root, grated.
note from knowledge seeker --this deeep tissue repair oil can also be purchased at herbdoc.com
This recipe produces two quarts of deep tissue repair oil. INSTRUCTIONS: Put all these ingredients in one big jar. Let it soak for at least two weeks, then strain on the full moon two weeks later, or, if you have time, let it soak for two or three months before straining on a full moon.
A word on obtaining ingredients: 1) Regarding cayenne pepper, the hotter, the better. Use African bird peppers, or habeneros.
2) Buy your menthol crystals at either a pharmacy or a lab supply house. That one can be a little difficult, but usually a pharmacy or a lab supply house can supply it. A lot of pharmacists carry it, because it stops itching.
What they do is they distill peppermint oil to make it, then they distill it a second time and it crystallizes. These crystals are pure menthol. Menthol is one of the active principles of peppermint oil. You have peppermint leaves, which have a lot of active principles, then you have peppermint oil, which is a more concentrated form, and then you have menthol crystals, which is even more concentrated.
Make sure the menthol crystals are made from peppermint or thyme. Chemists always know that. I get it from a chemical supply house in Los Angeles. But a lot of times, people can contact their university or school, and just ask them where they can purchase some chemicals. You need a chemical supply house that sells natural chemicals that are derived from plants. This is at least four times stronger than anything you can buy, plus it contains trauma-healing herbs that nothing else contains. My experience with that formula is just unbelievable. I really love it.
Interviewer: How do you get the menthol crystals to dissolve into the oil?
SCHULZE: The way we've been doing it recently is once you put the menthol in we set that on the floor and then we have a radiant heater that has a coil inside of it on the other side of the room. We face it in that direction, and at the end of the day, it melts the crystals. In the summer, just put the jar in the sun for a few hours, or put the jar in a double boiler.
Interviewer: That dissolves it into it?
SCHULZE: Yes, it just has to be warm. You could also put it over a heat register and it would work. There's a lot of ways to do it.
Emotional advice for arthritics.
SCHULZE: I have found that arthritis is a crystallized disease for crystallized people. In other words, a lot of healers feel there's a certain mind set that goes along with arthritis — which is not being open. When your body starts freezing up, what's going on with you emotionally? Why don't you want to go forward? Most of my arthritis patients have been pretty constipated up here in their head. I think this is one of the reasons why people tend not to get well with their arthritis. It's like weight loss. You can take all the pills, you can eat all the Lean Cuisine, but if you don't move your ass, you don't keep the weight off. Okay?
With arthritis, you can take all the pills, you can take all the arthritis preparations, but if you don't follow the food program and stop putting inorganic minerals and acids into your body, your joints won't un-inflame. You also have to work with healing the mind — being a more open person and a more flexible person. People with arthritis aren't flexible physically and/or emotionally. This is their challenge, physically and emotionally.

The vet wanted to put the arthritic dog to sleep. But two weeks after following my suggestions, it was humping another dog."
Interviewer: So you are talking sick dogs, too?
SCHULZE: Yeah, and I've got a couple dog and cat stories I could go into... Okay.
The first one I remember is a woman I had never seen before she came walking up the sidewalk to my first clinic, carrying a dog that was absolutely slumped. It looked like it had been shot; it looked dead. This was some kind of a collie; it weighed about eighty pounds I thought, "Why is this woman bringing a dead dog into my clinic?" She was crying; she was a lead a actress on a soap opera (I actually remember recognizing her) because she had done a lot of commercials on television as well. She was hysterically crying. I asked what was wrong and she said "I am so and so, and I just went to the vet; my dog is fifteen years old and the vet said he wanted to put my dog to sleep."
I asked what was wrong and she said that her dog had arthritis which had gotten so bad he didn't even want to move anymore. He was in so much pain. Of course the vet's answer to this was to kill it and I thought that there are a lot of things I could think of to do. I have had a lot of patients with arthritis. So we started a program; there are a lot of people out there who have older dogs with arthritis.
Think about it: if we had a person, we would think about some hot and cold applications. Well, you can do that to do a dog; you can put an ice pack on a dog's hip or a dog's spine. Dogs love it. You can give them a hot and cold bath; dogs love the attention. Also, we would think of a massage if it were a person. Why not get on that dog and massage those joints and get some blood in there?
Also, we have pain herbs. I mean a little pain relief for the dog could just give it enough relaxation to reduce the inflammation. Hey, I have had patients that, when the vet's said to kill their dog or cat, all they did was give their dog or cat aspirin and the animal got better. I am not necessarily suggesting aspirin, but I would rather take aspirin than be killed.
INTERVIEWER: Pain herbs like what?
SCHULZE: I think one of the best one is valerian; in fact, in Germany, you will find that veterinary medicine is almost purely herbal, especially with horses, but throughout the animal kingdom.
They use valerian, but hops are a great sedative and pain herbs for pets, also. "I have always found that herbs work better for pets than for humans, because animals live closer to nature."
SCHULZE: They are more in tune with nature; they haven't had as many drugs and for some reason I find that pets respond to herbs even faster than people do. So the pain and relaxing herbs work really well and also, if you have an old dog, put him on a lighter diet. If they have arthritis, they might be a little overweight, which hurts the joints, so lighten their food up a little bit, maybe even fast them.
That will wake them up a little bit. That will bring them around from the dead. But, the funny thing was that this lady started doing some hot and cold, some massage, she got the pain herbs out, I think she even used a couple of aspirin, she lightened his diet;
In a couple of weeks she called me to complain that her dog was mounting the neighbor's dog. I'll never forget that. I said, "Don't worry about it." I mean, I didn't know what to do. This was a dog the vet was going to kill! If I had a buck for every time I heard that the vet wanted to kill the animal and the patient did barely anything and the next we knew the animal is running around... animals respond quickly, come back to life so quickly.
I have seen this so many times. "Just a side note here: if you want to really make your animals sick, send them to a kennel."
SCHULZE: I think that if I look at the amount of cats and dogs that have come to my clinic because they were sick I would say that for over half of them, it was after a stay in the kennel. This breaks down into a couple of things.
I think first of all, animals don't have the same sense of reason that we do. You drop them off at a kennel, they think they are going to

more help from various alternative health modalities found here
Dr Norman Walker was a raw foodist in the 50s and he lived to be somewhere between 97 and 2116. He rarely gave out his age calling himself ageless, but he lived to be at least 97. He had saved his life and health when a young man but grating produce to make juices (before their were juicers) and by eating fresh raw food and living in the country in a clean environment. Like many of our great healers and pioneers, he healed not only himself but went on to heal many more and eventually reach even more people through his books.
He invented the first juicer the top of the line Norwalk juicer (his name) and is called the father of the modern juice movement and author of many books.
One of them is called fruit and vegetable juices and in it, he gives juice prescriptions for various illnesses
Here is what he prescribes for arthritis (be sure to see juice info at bottom before starting)
These are listed in order from most to least helpful but he felt they all were needed as each had a distinct purpose (the numbers before them are the formula numbers from his book)
22 grapefruit (fresh real juice not canned)- at least one pint (2-8 oz cups)
61 carrot and spinach -at least one pint 10 oz carrot 6 oz spinach
6 celery at least one pint
37 carrot celery one pint-formula is 9 oz carrot and 7 oz celery (note if celery tops used, change it to 10 oz carrot and 6 oz celery)
30 carrot beet and cucumber-one [pint of lesser importance than others but also of help) 10 carrot 3 oz beet and 3 oz cuke
Take at intervals of 2 or 3 hours between each combination
He says one of the most effective dissolvers of this inorganic calcium that has deposited in the joints is grapefruit juice
Due to its organic (natural) salicylic acid content.
Canned grapefruit juice has been found to be useless.
He says wintergreen essential oil is also helpful externally (put in a carrier oil like olive or jojoba)
Go here for a complete list of the oils. just need a spoon r so as some essential oils can burn the skin if used straight
Wintergreen like grapefruit juice is also high in salicylic acid
Dr Walker also feels that long term resentments and the accumulation of inorganic calcium deposited in the cartilage of the joints is often the cause
due to magnetic attractions of cartilage and inorganic calcium and thus this inorganic calcium is often deposited there
He says this is all just a good first step as resentments must be acknowledged and banished
Why these juices help-
The celery juice has high organic sodium to help hold the calcium more or less in solution.
The carrot and spinach causes the blood and lymph to help carry these wastes to the colon and facilitate its function and nourishes nerves and muscles in the small and large intestines.
The carrot and celery rebuild and regenerates the cartilage and joints and eventually helps restore them to their normal state.
Again the grapefruit juice is one of the most effective dissolvers of this inorganic calcium that has deposited in the joints due to its organic (natural) salicylic acid content.
he does not say about the last formula other than it is quite helpful.
This process of healing can be painful but eventually one is more active than ever.
It requires willpower and cooperation but worth it, he says.
Notes about juicing from knowledge seeker
1 drink within 20 minutes lest vital elements dissipate do not make and hold over in refrigerator but make fresh each time if you do not, at least fill glass jar to tiptop excluding as much air as possible and cap
2 chew the juice
3 if one uses sprayed non organic produce, but discards all pulp it is the same essentially as drinking organic he says as the pesticides etc are concentrated in the plant fiber the clean organic juice is locked inside the poisonous fiber and when the juicer smashes it the organic juice within the fibers is released.
The juice repels the toxins as oil to water and remains safe as long as no pulp is consumed with it so do not use a vitamix or blender and strain or make whole juice but use a juicer that separates juice from pulp

There are two really good books to read on this topic linked below in red. Also another that may be of help, a great book at the end, so three all together.
One is by Dr Jensen and one by Dr Jarvis
Dr Bernard Jensen was also a teacher of Dr Richard Schulze and healed many people with arthritis, osteoporosis and rheumatism.
He lived to be age 93
He addresses a number of topics in the book such as dietary (some of this things are a dietary like 60% raw, 80% alkaline and 20% acid, daily having 6 veggies, 2 fruits, 1 protein and 1 starch when eating).
He addresses the need for natural organic sodium in foods the importance of all citrus being fully ripe and if you do not know if it is, avoidance at all costs, (the green citric acids stirs up all other acids in the body), and that arthritics often have enough calcium but a higher need for organic sodium than most people (whey is one of the best natural sources of this sodium-but he lists other sources as well).
Unlike many healers, he did not believe in a 100% vegan or vegetarian diet but small amounts of what he felt were healthful foods. He had great success curing arthritis and one should at least read his book to see what advice is best for them
He also stresses the importance of sunshine, skin brushing, circular motion (rotation type) exercises and mini trampoline exercises to move the lymph (he does not feel jogging is good for sufferers). He also has some slant board exercises.
He likes whex a dried goat milk whey-one tbs in warm water with a tbs of lecithin taken twice a day..he says it takes at least a year of right living to reverse this. He also feels veal joint broth is important. He feels fish and eggs are important (organic) Eggs should be cooked at low temperature and the best is poached or boiled as others means can destroy the lecithin in them.
He speaks of cleansing the 5 elimination channels. He has a number of dietary, healing and living well rules.
Dr J.C. Jarvis is the man who started the raw apple cider vinegar craze with his book folk medicine
Dr Jarvis was a medical doctor and veterinarian who went back to his home roots to study hundred years old Vermont folk medicine and use it in his practices with people and animals. He has a very interesting book on arthritis called arthritis and folk medicine
His research is pretty fascinating. He used apple cider vinegar to help arthritis (it probably will also help those with osteoporosis), One takes about a tbs or two of raw apple cider vinegar in water and adds the same amount of raw honey drinking this 3 times a day and this is said to make the pain go away but when one discontinues this treatment, it comes back.
Common brands of raw, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar is often found at health food stores or sections of the grocery store under the brand names braggs, eden and spectrum,. It contains the cloudy "mother"

helps gout, arthritis, rheumatism, etc Buy lugol's/parkelp/ and nitrazine paper.
1. PROVIDE STOMACH ACID for good digestion
2. to make body tissues tender so body cells carry on vital activity (tissue juices are improved) tender tissues retain their youth, and age slowly. avoid wrinkled skin--rebuilds human body
(cook meat in vinegar to tenderize)
3. to produce elasticity of tissues (stretches for childbirth for instance..I think take when losing weight. delays aging keep in good physical shape.
4. to remove calcium deposits in vessels walls (so calcium is not precipitated in bloodstream but held in solution. (that deposited in blood goes into solution to be removed (helps arthritis)
5. promotes use of calcium in body maintain size (grow for kids) and heavier because bones are solid and calcium is deposited where it should be not in joints--it is held in solution till it gets to the right place -the bones to
make them stronger and not porous.
6. terminates activity of body's energy expending mechanism and "sweetens the disposition" when energy expending mechanism becomes active, it organizes the body for aggressive action and puts it on combat basis..body shifts to high gear. become irritable and difficult to live with, calms you down--calms down race horse children ..shifts body from high to low gear
7, to exert favorable activity on constipation
8. improves health of skin in dogs good coats no fleas 1-2 months
people improved color, less wrinkling and blemishes..skin ages slowly.
9. to kill the culture medium in the body that makes possible the growth of harmful germs .. breaks medium making it hard for germs and the sickness they cause to grow..drink for spoiled before or after
10. to assist in shifting the blood mass to the digestive and other abdominal organs ..from 2nd tier (heart, lungs, central nervous system, eyes, ears, nose, throat, muscles) to the ground floor (skin, stomach, intestines, liver, spleen and kidney)
11. to bring about disappearance of putrefaction in intestinal tract..reducing bowel odor in a month or two showing putrefaction process in intestines no longer taking place
12. REDUCES TARTAR, less cavities, and stronger nails not breaking and splitting, (2-3 months) less hair falling out and hair growth. Helps use calcium correctly. reduces blood pressure. helps if excessive flight or fright (and stress I assume),,
Why it is good to add honey
1. improves digestion..stomach's best friend..soothing provides needed acid for digestion.
2. ability to attract fluid--hydration ability..contains moisture attracting ability compounds ..moist baked goods that last,..when you take honey with salty foods, you drink less
3. helps body destroy harmful germs..body cells take in and give out fluid hydration and dehydration..bacteria needed moisture to maintain themselves and take it from body cells..but if enough potassium in each body cell, it will draw moisture from bacteria instead of cell.
eat lots of potassium like fruit, berries, leaves, roots, and honey to win contest with bacteria. q..the nutritional quality of the food improves as honey extracts more nutrients.
4 excellent food supplement with minerals vits and enzymes..perfect food..no more than 1/100th is waste...maintains body's health
5. laxative effect (mild)

The last book is called Food your Miracle Medicine. This is a great book for a variety of health problems based on 10,000 medical studies. Go here to see the book and look inside. On the table of content, scroll down till you get to words Food for joint and bone problems page 369 to see some of the topics discussed on foods that help or contribute to arthritis.
The book is cheap just a penny and $3.99 shipping and well worth it.
In addtion to trying to eat a diet high in protein and that is around 80% alakaline, try these things
-Raw potato (the book dining in the raw has a tasty raw potato salad).
-Raw potato juice- drink in am on empty stomach (also helps diabetes). Cut into french fry cuts, and put in water overnight, Drink water, Discard potato. This can also help if one has undigested food in the stool.
-Also can juice raw potato in the am 50-50 with water
-Lime is solvent of uric acid (which main cause of arthritis)
-Green juices with carrot celery and beet (10 oz carrot, and 3 oz each of the other veggies) This is specific to arthritis
-Also pineapple juice fresh
-Juice fast every 2 months
_Take bromelain (this is also in the pineapple juice)
-Take raw garlic
-Do a banana fast 3-4 days only bananes
-Eat more fermented foods
-Lemon to water helps alkalize body
-Take baths with 1 cup of sea salt
-DO VINEGAR BATH:
This is used when the body is too acidic. This is a quick way of restoring the acid-alkaline balance. 1 cup to 2 quarts of 100% apple cider vinegar to a bathtub of warm water. Soak 40 to 45 minutes. This is excellent for excess uric acid in the body and especially for the joints, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and gout.
Question 1: What could be done in a case where cervical arthritis is present, where X-rays show a narrowing of the interspace between C-5, C-6 and C-7, and where anterior and posterior spurs, heading for spondylosis, are present? Is there any way whereby the calcium deposits can be removed, extracted or eliminated to free the body from its painful burden?
Answer 1: We have seen numerous cases of the condition described in this question in most areas of the spine all the way from the Atlas Axis down to the tail base. After beginning the therapy with cleaning and mucusless dieting, they followed this procedure: make a fomentation of a tea combination which we call "Bone, flesh and cartilage." It is also called "comfrey combination", and consists of six parts oak bark, three parts marshmallow root, three parts mullein herb, two parts wormwood, one part lobelia, one part scullcap, six parts comfrey root, three parts black walnut bark or leaves and three parts gravel root.
Soak the combined teas in distilled water at a rate of one pint of distilled water to one ounce of combined herbs. Continue the soaking from four to six hours and then simmer the preparation for thirty minutes followed by a straining. After the straining, simmer the tea down to one half of its volume. If desired, a volume of natural vegetable glycerine equivalent to one fourth the volume of the tea may then be added. For example, if there is a gallon of the tea after the straining, simmer it down to two quarts and add one pint of the vegetable glycerine
Soak some flannel, cotton or other material except for synthetics which should never be used and wrap the soaked cloth fomentations around the malfunctioning area and then cover with plastic, oil paper or oiled silk. In turn cover the area with toweling and leave on all night. Repeat this for six nights a week until relief is accomplished and the calcified deposits disappear. Also, drink 1/4 cup of the finished tea, with or without the glycerine, but diluted with 3/4 cup of distilled water. This should be done three times a day for six days of each week until relief occurs.
Arthritis-=help from Dr Christopher, Schulze's teacher
Note-one way Dr Christopher did this for problems with neck or back was to use a cap and sew a 6 inch strip of cloth and cover that with 6 inch piece of plastic so it trails down the back. One could then secure with a belt or tape to try to keep it on all night.
The mucusless diet links were in another post above or go to herballegacy.com and type in search and also go to articles and look for the 2 articles there. Cleansing refers to cleansing the elimination organs like bowels, kidneys, liver, blood, lungs,. skin etc (go http://curezone.com/schulze/handbook/incur5.asp and scroll down to blue print for 5 day cleanses, colon cleanse, etc get his herbs at herbdoc.com)

Some say avoid nightshade http://www.archure.net/salus/nightshade.html
For pain, I have found 10,000 gauss or higher magnets to help. Use waterproof first aid tape to stick them on
Some answers I got from yahoo answers when I asked about arthritis for myself
Drinking tea with willow bark in it can help (make it tasty with licorice or raspberry)
I've had rheumatoid arthritis since I was 2. My doctor told me to keep active, to keep joints moving. There are also glucosamine tablets that you can take *from the naturals section in any drug store. I hear it works wonders. But for now, I'd rather go through the pain. I just go for hot showers to relieve any pain, when it gets bad, I take Advil.
i use tiger balm on my joints when they flare.
watch eating foods that make it worse like caffeine,
some people get inflammation from tomatoes, white potatoes, onions, red and green bell peppers, the "hot" peppers such as chili and paprika, as well as eggplant belong to the Nightshade Family, a botanical genus called Solanaceae species. This species also includes tobacco, poisonous belladonna, and the toxic plants herbane, mandrake, and jimson weeds.
* Vitamin C, 200 milligrams a day.
* Vitamin E, 400 IU of natural mixed tocopherols (d-alpha-tocopherol with other tocopherols, or, better, a minimum of 80 milligrams of natural mixed tocopherols and tocotrienols).
* Selenium, 200 micrograms of an organic (yeast-bound) form.
* Mixed carotenoids, 10,000-15,000 IU daily.
* In addition, take daily multivitamin/multimineral supplements that provide at least 400 micrograms of folic acid and at least 1,000 IU of vitamin D. They should contain no iron and no preformed vitamin A (retinol).
* Take supplemental calcium, preferably as calcium citrate. Women should supplement with 500-700 mg daily, for a total daily intake of 1,000-1,200 mg from all sources.
* Magnesium half the dose of calcium 600 mg calcium =
300 mg magnesium
* Hylaronic acid

* alpha-lipoic acid, 100 to 400 milligrams a day.
* drink 6-8 glasses of pure water a day, or drinks that are mostly water (tea, very diluted fruit juice, sparkling water with lemon).
There are many known and treatable CAUSES of arthritic type pain. Sherry Rogers, M.D. has written an excellent book on the subject called: "Pain Free in 6 Weeks". The book is available at Amazon.com. I highly recommend it.
Best wishes and good luck.
P.S. I am assuming you have had an evaluation by your family Chiropractor. If not, be sure you do. There are many bio-mechanical factors that can contribute to arthritic pain and a good Chiropractor can help a lot.
YES!!! I work in an herbal medicine store. There is a product by a great company called New Chapter that is an herbal anti-inflammatory called Zyflamend. It has been through all sorts of clinical trials, I've had great feedback on it, and it is the #1 herbal supplement seller in the U.S. Also there are a class of herbs called adaptogens that reduce cortisol levels in the body, The adrenal glands excrete cortisol in response to internal or external stress and this causes inflammation. These include ginseng, schizandra, rhodiola, holy basil. New Chapter has a product called Stress Advantage that I recommend. My aunt is taking tumeric and chamomile for this issue. Gout occurs when there is too much uric acid. Nettles are high in minerals and help to reduce this. Devil's Claw is specific for removing uric acid from the joints. If you have an herbal store where you live, I highly recommend going in and talking with someone or even getting a referral to a naturopathic doctor. Also, I've had good results in terms of a pain and potentially healing of tissue with a homeopathic topical ointment called Topricin.
If you’re really series about getting better, natural medicine is the best way to go. My sister in law was suffering from something similar to your problem and here pain was so bad she had to get injected every week for the pain. But now she is taking some natural medicine that works with repairing your immune system at a cellular level along with a healthy diet she is doing 100% better. So if your series about natural medicine email me
All is not lost. (I'll say it louder) ALL IS NOT LOST.
Quick start first, ( New Chapter
Zyflamend and Zyflamed PM )daytime formula http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/br...
These two put the flames out for me, I then began to juice carrots (see http://www.hacres.com for more info), into the carrot juice base I added ginger root and jalapeno pepper, as well as tumeric root when available. Just juice it and it really doesn't taste bad, after about three weeks you won't need to buy anymore supplements, just keep juicing --you can drop the jalapeno's too. The big trick is to buy organic carrots and have the proper juicer that can break down the cell wall of the vegetables and extract the nutrients. The link above hacres.com also sells a freeze dried barley grass powder which is of great value.
There is even more you can do if you want to optimize things, I have started it in the last few months. We get very little Omega 3 fatty acids in our diet, when you replace the omega 3s your body begins to respond in amazing ways. I eat 1/3 cup of organic cottage cheese blended with 3 oz of high lignan flaxseed oil daily.
I hope this is helpful, it has helped me regain my life and mobility.
with all of the other good info already given here,i would only emphasize using only natural products as well. the most important advice i would add is, stop completely all forms of sugar and grains until you feel better,then slowly(slowly) you can add some things back and see how your body reacts,then you,ll know some of the things that contribute to the problems. diet and lifestyle are upmost. it,s a fungal overload in your body!
take cod liver oil in capsules, 2 capsules, 3 times daily. works fast and rejuvenates joints overnight. has been proven by so many of my friends and relatives. no kidding... of course, you must also avoid foods with high uric acid contents like red meat, beans, etc... would be better for you if you will also avoid crabs, shrimps, squid, shellfish... red meat is definitely out and pork, too...
I am sorry you are suffering with this. Try to look into alternate healing like Reiki. It might be the answer you need.
The Yoga Pranayam (breathing exercises) will help you relax and also help with the arthritis.The systems in the body will start doing their jobs better and in turn will get you better.
Build up your timing gradually. If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after 1 minute.
Bhastrika - Take a long deep breath into the lungs(chest not tummy) via the nose and then completely breathe out through the nose. Duration upto 5 minutes.
Anulom Vilom –
Close your right nostril with thumb and deep breath-in through left nostril
then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day(maximum 60 minutes in one day).
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.
Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
Duration : 5 to 12 times
Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day.(Max 60 min/day) Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Once you are better, continue the pranayam once a day.
Be patient, as the benefits will show over a period of months.Only by doing you will benefit
and feel good because you are helping your body.Those who say I have tried everything....
will be amazed at the result of doing pranayam.
I suffer from Arthritis (in the back and kidney) and i can tell you that the best think you can do to relieve the pain from arthritis is do yoga. Seriously i used to be in so much pain that i stopped doing any sports (which you shouldn't, when you suffer from arthritis you need to stay active!) and sometimes lied on my bed for hours because it hurt so bad. Then I started to take yoga lessons twice a week, and it's best thing i ever did. I can clearly see the benefit I've been doing it for almost 2 years now and don't think will ever stop :)
so if you have the opportunity i think you should try yoga.
There is no cure for arthritis. There are however natural ways of treating the symptoms that can both relieve the pain and slow down the progression of the disease. (note I disagree obviously)
Omega 3 fatty acids are as effective as over the counter anti-inflammatories such as Motrin. If the omega 3 comes from a fish source make sure it is purified to remove heavy metals such as lead and mercury.
Turmeric, which comes from the spice curry, is also a good natural anti-inflammatory.
There is also a supplement called Cetyl Myristoleate that I personally take for my osteoarthritis.
hi arthritis is notoriously hard to heal.
I do not think 1000 mg is high enough I would up that glucosamine to to 3000 mg or at least 2000 mg. My chiropractor told me people should also take Chondroitin Sulfate with it.
Be careful of prescription anti-inflammatory nsaids they can damage one's kidneys as they did with a relative of mine who wound up on dialysis due to this
They are some herbal anti-inflammatory one is tumeric. Boswelia is also used.
Something that helped a lot of people with their knees and things like that is Hyaluronic acid that is made from rooster combs and certain foreign root veggies. I thought it was kind of expensive though
I read that people who became vegetarians noticed there arthritis dramatically going away or lessoning..
Note: you must take apple cider vinegar daily. It may take two to four weeks to feel the full effects. However, Apple Cider Vinegar ("ACV") relieves pain and gives freedom of movement in most people. This is not a cure - if you stop taking the apple cider vinegar for a few days, you will feel your arthritis symptoms again!
Dosage: 2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar in 8 oz of water, 3x a day.
Besides drinking ACV, you can also find relief by soaking arthritic joints in hot Apple Cider Vinegar. Use 1/4 cup of ACV to 1.5 cups of hot (but not scalding) water. For areas too large to soak, try soaking a cloth in the above ratio and putting it on the affected area. Wrap a towel over the wet cloth to keep in the heat. Keep the wrap on for ten minutes. You can repeat this after the joint cools for ten minutes.
Glucosamine & Chondroitin Capsules
Black Strap Molasses

Drink 1/3 cup of mixture 3x a day.
take 1 tsp in hot milk and it relieves all forms of body pains, joint pains or 1600 mg of tumeric (800 x2 day) and after about six weeks the pain almost all gone and flexibility returning.
Golden Grapes soaked in gin!
golden grapes soaked in cheap gin for nine days, then nine grapes per day, everyday.
glucosamine and condriten tablets and DMSO which can be applied to the skin.. with the DMSO however you have to be very careful to not let it sit on there to long or it will burn pretty good and not to use it to often or it will get into the blood stream as well but we have used it on horses for 30 years and i use it on my knees now and it does wonders
For me I found acupuncture to be amazing. After suffering for 10 years with arthritis in my foot/ankle from an mis diagnosed injury and wearing a brace and taking daily pain killers. In addition I had two surgeries to attempt to take care of the problem. I was facing a third when I tried acupuncture and it's wonderful.
I'm now brace and drug free (2.5 years) and feel like a whole new life has started. All due to acupuncture. Try it!!
