What are the foods to avoid with arthritis? If you avoid them, could this be a cure? Or is there another cure for arthritis? If these important questions are answered helpfully, it could mean the end of arthritis for you or your loved one. So let’s look at what you can do yourself and then look at other areas of self help, which can be far more rewarding, more beneficial and less harmful than mainstream arthritic drugs.
Firstly, dairy is a generally considered to be one of the main foods to avoid with arthritis. A study done in China, where little or no dairy is consumed, found little or no arthritis present. And it isn’t just arthritis that dairy aggravates. Everyone who comes off dairy experiences massive health rewards.
This is hardly surprising when you realise two important points
1. Dairy is made for baby cows. You were probably weaned a long time ago. And you are not a bovine. So why should dairy be beneficial for you? And the truth is, it isn’t. It isn’t the great source of calcium or protein it’s made out to be, as your digestion changed at the time of weaning, making dairy much less digestible for you. Even though both calcium and protein abound in dairy, they are locked up – your body can’t access them.
2. Pasteurisation damages and destroys nutrients in the milk, making it even more difficult to digest than raw milk is.
Focussing on the damage heating food does, you will find that a diet rich in raw, untreated foods will go a long way to restoring your good health. Raw food is rich in enzymes, something essential to good digestion and gut health. Raw food digests much more completely and more quickly than does cooked food, so the nutrients get into your system much more quickly.
Many nutrients are either damaged (such as protein) or lost (such as enzymes) in cooking. Health cannot be good if you’re not getting the essential nutrients, even though they are in the food you buy.
Whilst diet goes a long way to restoring your good, arthritis-free health, and may be the complete answer for many, inevitably it will not be able to give 100% relief to 100% of people.
And this is where the natural modality of health care homeopathy comes in. Homeopathy is a powerful and complete system of natural health care which can resolve any health problem, including arthritis.
The way homeopathy works is to rebalance you. And it is this rebalancing that is the key to good health. A lack of balance leads to ill health. This can come from bad living conditions, such as diet. Or it can be from a family trait. Homeopathy has the potential to unravel these familial tendencies.
