I can't find the article that Rush was talking about. Does anybody have a link?
Don’t have that but here’s this
Good post. This info above is correct. Most people are too lazy to get off their lard a**es and eat right and excercise
I heard him and agree....the big problem is sugars and starches and certain vegetable oils....
to a certain degree you must be your own doctors...because they are too busy with pharmaceutical salesmen...
(I worked in pharmaceutical manufacturing for 3 decades)
That is how we eat..paleo. No grains/gluten free, and no suger. Mostly red meats, grass fed and veggies. Feel better than I ever felt the first 50 yrs of my life. Arthritis is gone, sinus infections, gone..just better!
Frankly, 99% of the garbage on grocery store shelves gags me to even look at it.
I’m a big fan of minimal ingredient foods....like one or two, preferably.
I also take coconut oil caps and and colostrum supplements.
Yes, coconut oil (raw, organic) and palm oil. Lots of Omega 3 foods and suppliments. I took myself off statins a year ago last Dec. My muscles and liver thank me every day.
I love William Douglas-The Douglas Report.
One of my favorite quotes from him is (I’m paraphrasing)—Let the cow eat the greens, then you eat the cow.
I think Douglas lives out of the country.
Probably because he would be censored in this country!
You just need some nice antidepressants.
Clearly, you’re not thinking straight.
FR needs a “like” button....;)
Question. When you say your arthritis is gone, do you mean that the deterioration has stopped and you are pain free or that bone has started to regenerate.
Just wondered as my knees are smush, one worse than the other, but there is actual bone damage. (Who would have though sports injuries would have caught up with me.. ;-)
If you don’t mind sharing anyway.
Thank you very much!
http://http://www.marksdailyapple.com/ is a great resource as well.
Fact is, from day one I feel better. I have only made it to thirteen days (twice) so far, but I believe that if you fasted long enough you could get rid of the inflammation that causes rheumatoid arthritis, and if you kept your weight down and didn't eat crap you could keep it down.
Cartilage damage that is already done, however, is not reversible.
That doesn't mean you won't feel a whole lot better though. You can live pain-free with some cartilage damage.
My hands, ankles and wrists were painful and swollen with very limited movement. Now the fingers still have some enlarged joints, but I can now make a tight fist and have no pain, no inflammation.
I am doing what is called a Leptin Reset. Eat within 30 minutes of waking a high protein meal of at least 50 grams of protein along with some veggie (non starchy) and some good fat. No snacking between meal and eat lunch, protein, veggie and some good fat again (I actually eat a spoonful of Nutiva coconut oil off of a spoon!). And then dinner, maybe salmon (wild caught) some fermented homemade sauerkraut. No snacking until breakfast. NO HUNGER, NO cravings for sweets and breads. Been doing it for 2 months and I was a queen of carbs and sweets. It works. You may not ever get back your joints in perfect condition, but you can heal the inflammation and make them strong again.

I wondered why my very good doctor took me off statins!!
Good for you. I eat mostly skinless chicken breast, fish, lots of fruit and veggies. Some lean red meats. Very little processed foods. Maybe one cheat meal a week with the GF.
GF is the same way and she and I both love to cook.
That is good, but to eat great, add some healthy fats. Don’t shy away from them, you need them. Check out the link above and the doctor explains your healthy fats and omega 3/6 ratio. That will keep you healthy!
Note sure about bone regrowth and degree of damage you have sounds like it is surgery time. Iff you are overweight, shed the weight. 10-15-20 lb weight loss is a major improvement on joint pain.
Other concoction mix that works. Drink lot's of water, excercise the joint as much as possible with low impact movements such as walking, treadmill and elipticals. The more you excercise the less pain. It would seem the other way around but it's not the case.
Do leg strengthening excercises on the weight machines-help strengthen the flabby muscles around your joints and tightens everything up and forces the knee to move straight and not flappying around in unatural movements.
Take a combination of Omega fish oil, flaxseed oil pills and the Glucosomine/chondritin/ MSN tablets. The GCM pills can take up to 4-5 weeks to load up in your system before you notice an less pain.
A really good physical trainer/nutritionist at a better gym can do wonders.
Yes, I make sure to get those in also.
“Most people are too lazy to get off their lard a**es and eat right and excercise”
Unfortunately, I think that describes me to a ‘T’.
Anyone with psoriasis needs to start slowly with very low dose krill oil and monitor their psoriasis. Unfortunately, I began with a high dose, exacerbated my psoriasis (which is mild)and it took nearly 3 weeks to calm it back down.
Occasional fasting is good, but perhaps there’s some specific food that’s causing your problem. Next time you break your fast, try having single-food meals of your favorite food ingredients to nail down the ones that are causing the problem. Food sensitivities are most likely to develop with the foods you eat most often: wheat, corn, milk, etc. Any food that causes a noticeable reaction is stressing your immune system: get rid of it.
I went through this 30 years ago. I still remember my first post-fast meal: organic cherry tomatoes. Nothing ever tasted better. A few days later I had a meal of ordinary mushrooms. I never felt worse in my life: it was like Winston Churchill’s depression had descended on me. After doing that I completely eliminated four foods from my life, resolving a host of nagging problems (rashes, arthritis, foot fungus, bad breath, body odor, depression).
Not saying his advise is unsound or anything but you might want to look at this.
Eating natural foods and removing at least most sugar and starch sounds sensible to me though.
My arthritis is much better since I gave up concentrated carbohydrates in all forms.
My butter cookies: cashews.
Re: Article by MD quoted by Rush today.
Author of the article, Dwight Lundell (MD) lost his license to practice medicine in 2008!
Go to the Rush Limbaugh Talk Radio thread. Everything is there.
If youre one of the millions of Americans who take statins to prevent heart disease, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has important new safety information on these cholesterol-lowering medications.
FDA is advising consumers and health care professionals that:
Routine monitoring of liver enzymes in the blood, once considered standard procedure for statin users, is no longer needed. Such monitoring has not been found to be effective in predicting or preventing the rare occurrences of serious liver injury associated with statin use.
Cognitive (brain-related) impairment, such as memory loss, forgetfulness and confusion, has been reported by some statin users.
People being treated with statins may have an increased risk of raised blood sugar levels and the development of Type 2 diabetes.
Some medications interact with lovastatin (brand names include Mevacor) and can increase the risk of muscle damage.
This new information should not scare people off statins, says Amy G. Egan, M.D., M.P.H., deputy director for safety in FDAs Division of Metabolism and Endocrinology Products (DMEP). The value of statins in preventing heart disease has been clearly established, she says. Their benefit is indisputable, but they need to be taken with care and knowledge of their side effects.
FDA will be changing the drug labels of popular statin products to reflect these new concerns. (These labels are not the sticker attached to a prescription drug bottle, but the package insert with details about a prescription medication, including side effects.)
The statins affected include:
Altoprev (lovastatin extended-release)
Products containing statins in combination with other drugs include:
Advicor (lovastatin/niacin extended-release)
Simcor (simvastatin/niacin extended-release)
Food for thought:
[mushrooms are a fungus...~totally~ disallowed food type in the candida diet]
He’s not a quack.
He’s totally right and branded by a heretic by those “doctors” who want to sell you over-priced pills and bypasses.
Most doctors like sick people.
Those yachts aren’t gonna pay for themselves.
Thanks...I really that...;D
