Arthritis

Recently I spoke to a woman who mentioned to me how she was suffering with this terrible disease. So naturally, with my whole-plant- food- missionary ways told her she could easily and quickly cure herself with diet. I’m always doing this sort of thing. Sometimes I get a little interest from those I try preaching to. I got a reaction this time alright – a very negative one. She said – “It’s incurable! My specialist says you can’t cure it!” Not to be beaten I offered to show her where she could read stories about many people who had actually cured themselves. I offered her my business card with the intention of showing her Dr McDougall’s website address, where she could find those “Star McDougallers” who had beaten arthritis. You would have thought I was pushing cyanide pills onto her; She recoiled and said “Don’t give me that!” I found her reaction very strange. Then I thought back to my own wife who suffered for 20 years with blood pressure, when I tried to talk her into trying the McDougall diet; very sceptical almost aggressively so. I really can’t understand those attitudes. You would think those people would be clutching at straws to cure their debilitating diseases; especially with nothing more than a change of diet; one that no one could say was unhealthy. What’s to lose? What’s to gain?

That woman’s doctor got things partially right. He can’t cure it. Modern medicine can’t cure it. All they offer, once again, are some terrible, Dark-Age drug treatments. Pain killers, steroids, even some cancer chemo drugs are used. Some have minor benefits; some actually worsen the condition and some can cause other diseases. What would you expect when you start using those powerful drugs. You don’t get through it without damage.

I would suggest to those of you that have arthritis and want a cure to just visit Dr McDougall’s website. Go to www.drmcdougall.com; look under “education”; then under “Success Stories” and you will find both video interviews and inspiring written stories of a dozen or more people that have beaten arthritis. He also offers his simple dietary method to treat arthritis; surely worth consideration. It will work for all those autoimmune diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Type 1 Diabetes, Crohn’s Disease, Lupus and others. Those diseases are in the top ten killers of women and can all be cured by the one diet, that whole plant food diet again.

Another point of interest – Turmeric, that king of spices, is more effective in treating all types of arthritis and other inflammatory diseases than the expensive and dangerous drugs that doctors currently prescribe.

CAUTION – A WHOLE FOOD PLANT BASED DIET WILL RAPIDLY IMPROVE ANY EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITION. THEREFORE IF YOU CHOOSE TO TRY THIS DIET AND ARE ON MEDICATION FOR YOUR CONDITION YOU SHOULD CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR AND HAVE HIM MONITOR YOUR IMPROVEMENT AND ADJUST YOUR MEDICATION
