### Cures for Arthritis:
#Dr. Johanna Budwig,extract from http://www.luminet.net/~wenonah/news.htm
Healthy People Have a Higher Content of Omega3 Oils in Their Blood.
One of the most important and far reaching health discoveries of the Twentieth Century is that made by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist who is a leading European authority on fats and nutrition.Dr. Budwig has been nominated for the Nobel Prize seven times.She used her methods to successfully heal terminal cancer patients, people with heart diseases, arthritis and other ailments after they had been given up as hopeless by the conventional medical practitioners.
Her methods were so simple that any housewife could use her techniques with no special training and with good results.In fact, this is exactly what happened in many cases, people with serious diseases were curing themselves to the astonishment of the conventional medical practitioners.
Based on these observations, Dr. Budwig began treating her patients by giving them a combination of high quality flax seed oil, which is rich in Omega3 oil, and quark, which is something similar to cottage cheese or yogurt in that it is rich in high quality protein.Quark is difficult to obtain in the U.S, but either yogurt, cottage cheese, skim milk, soymilk or rice milk is a good substitute.(For the proper ratio of oil to protein, please see experiment.)
The reason for the mixture of the oil with a high quality protein is that by combining the protein with the oil, the oil becomes water soluble in the body and can be absorbed more readily.
It can enter the smallest capillaries, dissolving any of the undesirable fats and cleaning out the veins and arteries.It also strengthens the heart, dissolves tumors and cures arthritis.It sounds like a lot, but it really works.
Dr. Budwig worked with many patients who were terminally ill and some who had only hours to live.She gave them the combination of oil-protein plus organic foods, plus exercise, fresh air and used the healing powers of the sun to cure these “hopeless” cases that sometimes started to show improvement within days.Following is a quote from one of her books:
“I often take very sick cancer patients away from hospital where they are said to have only a few days left to live, or perhaps only a few hours.This is mostly accompanied by very good results.The very first thing, which these patients and their families tell me, is that in the hospital, it was said that they could no longer urinate or produce bowel movements.
They suffered from dry coughing without being able to bring up any mucous.Everything was blocked.It greatly encourages them when suddenly, in all these symptoms, the surface-active fats, with their wealth of electrons, start reactivating the vital functions and the patient immediately begins to feel better.It is very interesting to ask how this sudden change is possible.It has to do with the reaction patterns, with the character of electrons. (Zeta Potential)
Dr. Budwig’s cures are well documented and have stood the tests of opposition from the conventional medical establishment.

# Light therapy at http://www.luminet.net/~wenonah/new/spectro.htm , has been shown to be helpful in correcting many health issues from cancer to arthritis and even vision issues.It may be some time yet before we identify all the sunlight frequencies and body mechanisms that are required for achieving perfect health.So, take advantage of all the sunny days you can.
John Ott, a time-lapse photographer, in his book “Health and Light” stresses the importance of being outside without glasses – sunglasses or other – to realize maximum benefit from solar radiation.This book is an important read for all parents and teachers and stresses the need for light, as a “nutritional requirement,” in our quest for good health.
# Multi-Wave Oscillator http://www.rhinoed.com/mwo_research.htm
Quality of life can be restored to millions who suffer from Arthritis, diabetes, and countless other normal ailments. Many of the drugs being prescribed to us are more dangerous than they are good and tend to become sources of unending income for the drug companies of the world. If you have a loved one who is suffering, find out more and give an MWO a try. It can’t do any harm and may be safer, more effective than what your doctor is able to suggest to you if he wants to retain his license to practice medicine.
Testimonials of Multi-Wave Oscillator: Arthritis
I am a forty one year old female. I have suffered from painful knees every since high school as a result of several knee operations that left me without cartilage in my knees. In my early thirties I had an ACL replacement.
A few years later a tune up was required to scrap away the arthritic build up that had developed in my knees. I was told that I was looking at double knee replacement surgery but that I should hold out as long as possible since the replacements tended to wear out in 10 to 15 years.
I began using the MWO just before Thanksgiving 2002. Within 3 treatments my knees were pain free. I could walk and be on my feet for hours without pain. I had to relearn to walk with out the waddle I had become accustomed to doing to lessen the pain and flexing on my knees. Then I noticed that the scars on my knees from the surgery began to fade and turn more supple.
Then my knees started to shrink and look like knees again. For the first time in over 10 years I could play with my children, or volunteer at my son’s school and not be in tears by the time I got home. I have gone 4 months without taking so much as an aspirin for pain in my knees. I am down to using the MWO two or three times a week and the benefits seem to persist.
I swear the cartilage has grown back in my knees because they move smoothly now. There is no longer the grinding sound and feeling when I move my knee and use my hand to feel the motion. The really amazing part is that the MWO seems to have gotten rid of most if not all of my gray hair and age spots on my hands. Even my husband noticed it. It was that dramatic.
I can honestly say that I believe I can keep my knees for the rest of my life now. The MWO is too good to be true. The whole world should know about this.
The MWO is $3,300.00 plus shipping and handling.
Our own use of an MWO has demonstrated miraculous results. We have seen it completely defeat arthritis, gout, cancer, diabetes, nerve damage and other maladies.
The MWO helps “tune up” the body so that it heals like it was young and vibrant again. Our own observations are in complete agreement with Lakhovsky’s claims and research results.
# Dr Maxim Bing recommended Kombucha, at http://www.kalamark.com/batyah/essiac.html
Further reports in the same year from Dr Maxim Bing recommended Kombucha for arteriosclerosis, gout and also intestinal deficiency. With arteriosclerosis, a freshly prepared culture of the mushroom may alleviate symptoms of high blood pressure, anxiety, irritability, pains, headaches and dizziness. Constipation caused by a sluggish response of the intestines may also be treated by this remarkable fungus. He also noted that it was useful in the treatment of kidney stones and was ‘effective in the capillaries of the brain’.
Arthritis and gout are considered to be conditions which may be explained by the accumulation of toxins in the body. When a sufferer of these conditions starts to drink Kombucha on a daily basis, these toxins are dissolved and excreted by the kidneys by virtue of the fact that they couple with glucuronic acid to form soluble glucuronides or paired glucuronic acid.
Ten years later, Dr. Rudolf Sklenar of Oberhessen reported in the periodical “Experiential Healing Science” about his various techniques of diagnosis and therapy. The tea fungus is mentioned as an outstanding remedy which he considered to be a powerful agent for detoxifying the human body since it dissolves micro-organisms and also cholesterol. Some of his specific cancer treatments were based on the use of fermented tea for the balancing of intestinal flora.
With the tea fungus he successfully treated gout, rheumatic conditions, arteriosclerosis, arthritis, dysbacteria, constipation, impotence, non-specific draining, obesity, furunculosis, kidney stones, cholesterol and finally cancer in the early stages of detection.
In 1987, Dr. Veronika Carstens, recommends Kombucha in a series called “Help from Nature – My Remedies Against Cancer” with the words: “Kombucha detoxifies the organism and enhances the metabolism; this improves the defense capacity.” In the Netherlands, A J Lodesijkx of Ermelo – a natural healing specialist – describes the health-giving benefits of the fungus in his book “Life Without Cancer”. He concludes that the Kombucha fungus has strongly antiseptic properties.
It purifies the glandular system and promotes the elimination and neutralisation of uric acid. He concludes that the fermented beverage is an excellent remedy for gout, rheuma, arthritis, kidney stones, intestinal dysbacteria and early stages of cancer due to its influence on disease causing endobionts. (Red corpuscles are eliminated by these endobionts when the pH of the blood shifts unfavorably to the alkaline side.) Kombucha is considered to be unique in that it actively re-balances the blood pH and thus helps to counter any disease processes that are in operation.

# Russell J. Beckett: Magnesium Bicarbonate Water, from : www.rexresearch.com
The Star ( 9 Apr 2002) ~ “Water that Adds Years to Cattle Life and Cures Ailments”
A Sydney soft drinks producer has been inundated with demand for his latest product, a mineral-rich water which doubles the life of cattle and is claimed to cure ailments like arthritis and osteoporosis.
Developed by former vet Russell Beckett, who has a doctorate in biochemical pathology, “Unique Water” has just gone on sale after testing by 100 Australians. One is Paul Sheehan, a respected Sydney journalist, who said in the Sydney Morning Herald at the weekend how it has cured him of a series of long-term autoimmune diseases. A letter from Sheehan’s doctor said: “He has anklyosing spondylitis, and is now undergoing investigation for lupus erythematosis. He suffers constant back and neck pains, florid facial rash, extreme fatigue and shoulder pains.”
Typically the certain inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases and viral diseases in mammals are those that require the activities of carbonic anhydrase enzymes and/or the activities of acid (aspartic) protease enzymes and/or the activities of endosomal or lysosomal acid-requiring-enzymes and/or the activities of V-type ATPase proton pumps at some point in disease process or disease pathogenesis. Typically the certain inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases and viral diseases in mammals are represented by the diseases of arthritis and influenza.
This invention relates to a method of using an aqueous metal bicarbonate solution to decrease senescence and to increase longevity in mammals. Generally senescence is decreased and longevity is increased in mammals by improving the buffering capacity of the extracellular and intracellular fluids of the body. Generally senescence is decreased and longevity is increased in mammals by the improved buffering capacity causing a decrease in proton concentrations in the extracellular and intracellular fluids of the body. Typically senescence is decreased and longevity is increased in mammals by improving the buffering capacity of the extracellular and intracellular bicarbonate buffers. Typically senescence is decreased and longevity is increased in mammals by the improved extracellular and intracellular bicarbonate buffers causing a decrease in proton concentrations.
Certain inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases and viral diseases are major causes of morbidity and mortality in mammals. Typically these diseases are represented by the diseases of arthritis and influenza.
Arthritis is any inflammatory condition of the joints, characterised by pain and swelling. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in which one or many joints undergo degenerative changes. Treatment includes rest of the involved joints, heat, and antiinflammatory drugs. Intraarticular injections of corticosteroids may give relief. Surgical treatment is sometimes necessary and may reduce pain and greatly improve the function of the joint. However these treatments, apart from surgical treatment, only provide temporary relief and some may have severe side reactions.
Influenza is a highly contagious infection of the respiratory tract caused by a myxovirus and transmitted by airborne droplet infection. It occurs in isolated cases, epidemics and pandemics. Treatment is symptomatic and usually involves bed rest, antipyretics such as aspirin and drinking of fluids. New strains of the virus emerge at regular intervals so it is difficult to take preventative measures to avoid the infection. There is a need for a method to prevent and to treat certain inflammatory diseases, degenerative diseases and viral diseases in mammals.

# COQ10 SUPPLEMENTATION IS NECESSARY AS WE AGE, at http://www.internetwks.com/owen/coq10.htm
Researcher Dr. John Ely, of the University of Washington, holds that CoQ10 supplementation is essential in the aged.Most people make approximately 500 mg of Coq10 daily in the body, at least up until age 21. Between ages 21 and 30, levels of CoQ10 begin to drop, perhaps because of aging. This causes the degeneration of cells, which may contribute to age-related diseases and conditions such as high blood pressure, arthritis, heart disease and the breakdown of skin tissue.
Statin drugs and deficiencies in several other vitamins also cause blood levels of CoQ10 to drop.
Testimonials, Physicians Speak:
Since May of 2003, I have used Dr. Rath’s nutrient synergy recommendations as both adjunct and main modality in cancer patients and those who suffered from cardiovascular diseases.
The progress that my patients made has been the best of my 15 years of medical practice.
Among 200 cancer cases that I had, I lost 24 patients who came to me with stage IV of cancer, with more than one secondary and metastasis. The remaining cancer patients are doing very well. Their tumors went into full remission or became fibroid tumors.
In cardiovascular cases, the results are spectacular. In almost every case, I have seen improvements of varying degrees. In hypertension, osteo-arthritis, tinnitus, hyper-cholesterolemia, myocardial-infarction, and stroke cases, I observed the improvements within weeks or even days.

# Arthritis/Arthrosis, at http://www.drrathresearch.org/clinical_studies/condition_arthritis.html
Arthritis and arthrosis are very common connective tissue diseases. In arthritis, the problem is an inflammation of the bones, joints, and tendons. Chronic arthritis can lead to arthrosis, a degradation of cartilage in the joints. The cartilage can lose its elasticity, become rough and lose mass. This can result in the deformation of the cartilage.
Both arthritis and arthrosis are very painful diseases, with all the typical symptoms of inflammation, including fever, reddening, and swelling. Joints may also become stiff.
Aim of the Study
Cellular Health opens up the possibility of effective prevention and treatment of arthritis and arthrosis through the targeted use of micronutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. This study tested the effects of defined micronutrients on various inflammation parameters in patients diagnosed with arthritis and arthrosis.
The pilot study involved 10 patients between the ages of 45-84 years old, diagnosed with arthritis and/or arthrosis. These patients took specific vitamins daily during the six months of the study. No other medications were used. Patients in the study also underwent physical therapy treatments. As a control parameter, blood tests were performed every six weeks for various parameters that are indicators of inflammation.
The symptoms of inflammation were diagnosed in patients’ blood by analysis of erythrocyte (red blood cells) sedimentation (BSG), presence of a specific class of proteins called C-reactive proteins (CRP), and measurements of the number of leukocytes (white blood cells). In addition, x-ray pictures of the diseased areas were taken at the beginning and at the end of the study period.
After six months of the study, the following changes in inflammation parameters in the blood were detected:
1 . Blood sedimentation values (BSG) decreased in women by 35% and in men by 27%, compared to the initial values at the beginning of the study.
2 . Blood leukocyte levels were not affected and stayed at normal ranges for women and men at both the beginning and at the end of the study.
3 . Levels of CRP at the beginning of the study were two to four times higher than normal levels in six of the 10 study participants. By the end of the study, CRP levels had dropped by an average of 30%. Both the lowering in sedimentation of the blood and the falling of CRP levels demonstrated an improvement in the incidence of inflammation among arthritic and arthrotic patients. (Figure 2)
4 . X-ray examinations of diseased areas indicated an improvement in 50% patients.
This six-month pilot study, though conducted with a small group of patients, confirmed the positive effects of this vitamin program. The further effectiveness of the synergistic action of nutrients in arthritis has been confirmed by several testimonials that are based on patient medical records.

# Omega-3 and Omega-6, at http://www.nutech2000.com/webtext/health/fats.html
The famous Fat brothers known as Omega-3 and Omega-6 are extremely beneficial to the body when they both weigh in at the same weight. The ideal ratio is about 1:1, and this is probably what our ancestors consumed. The problem today is that most Australians consume a dangerously insufficient amount of Omega-3, while our intake of Omega-6 found in soy, sunflower, canola and other oils is far too high. A typical ratio exceeds 25:1, whereas countries such as Japan and Greece present a typical ratio of 1:1 to 5:1.
Omega-3 is found primarily in fish oil such as cod liver oil and salmon oil. Extensive studies have concluded that cold pressed, mercury-free fish oils fight and prevent heart disease, cancer, depression, Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and diabetes. They improve concentration and memory and increase energy levels. They provide resistence to common illnesses such as colds and flu. They also help women avoid premature births, low birth weight, and other complications.
For the non-vegetarian, fish oils provide a superior source of Omega-3 Fat without the danger of rancidity and free radical contamination that can occur with other Fats such as Flax oil. Cod liver oil can be consumed at a dose of 1 teaspoon per 25 kilograms of body weight per day. The dose for salmon oil is 3,000mg daily. Other fish oils may also be suitable, however, caution should be exercised.
Since fish today is generally considered unsafe to eat due to high levels of mercury contamination, it is very important to choose a high quality oil that has been independently lab-tested and found to be free of mercury and other toxins. Melrose (Cod Liver Oil) and GNLD (Salmon Oil) both conform to the most strict purity guidelines and are free from chemical modification and processing. Their oils are guaranteed mercury -free.
So, when it comes to Mr and Mrs Fat and all their little Fatlets, be sure to exercise forensic wisdom before inviting just any Fat into your community. Make a citizen’s arrest before Processed Fat, Trans Fat, Refined Fat, Poly Fat or any of the dangerous Fat band do any harm to you or your family. Learn from the civilizations that for centuries lived well and long, while consuming moderate amounts of Saturated Fat as part of a balanced diet.
