Arthritis New Cure?
I was reading an interesting article on Arthritis.
Claims were made that Arthritis did not exist in the not so
distant past. Skeletons and mummies show no signs of
Arthritis. Of course the article was written primarily to
sell a so called new cure. It blamed Arthritis on all of the
pesticides and pollution and steroids and hormone additives in
That new cure is actually a very old one. Is it only because
we now have a recorded history that tells of gouty toes that we
also have a recorded history of the use of herbs to combat that
gouty toe. The first rule to deal with gout has always
been and will always be to change the diet.
Gout was once only a problem for the
very rich because their diets included rich foods. They

abundance, so did our incident of Gout and all the other forms
In the poor parts of the world, they suffer from many things
but not Arthritis. This perhaps is the biggest reason to
rethink diet as a cause of Arthritis in all it many 200
Yes, I do believe that all the pesticides and food additives
are working to either destroy the human body or cause it to
mutate into something that can survive on the added un-natural
Lets face it. We have mutated into an obese body prone
to diabetes and arthritis and heart disease. Life span is
going down and those that survive are living on drugs.
I don't think this body form will become the dominate force
on the planet.
Oh, the magic new cure. Plain old organic sulphur
better known as MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane). This is
found in every cell in the body. It is essential and like
everything else, the normal production within the body slows as
the body ages. The big problem here is that because of
diet, a 40 year old body is usually equivalent to a 60 year old
Definitely take your MSM supplement. But go back to a
raw fruit and vegetable diet as much as possible. At
least one meal a day do the raw and slow the entire body aging
