THE ROLE OF NUTRITION IN ARTHRITIS TREATMENT: HEALTH DESTROYERS

Posted by admin

What not to eat is, perhaps, even more important that what to eat when planning a program of vital nutrition.

First and foremost, white sugar and all foods made with it should be totally excluded. Ice cream, candies, sodas, pastries, cakes, cookies, pies, sugared desserts—all must go. The astronomical use of refined white sugar and sugar syrups in the American diet is, to my mind, the greatest health-destroying factor causing the deplorable health condition of the nation.

Coffee, tea, and chocolate drinks, as well as all soft drinks, should be omitted and replaced by wholesome herb drinks and fruit juices. Health food stores carry a wide assortment of delicious herb teas: peppermint, alfalfa, camomile, rose hips, mate, white clover, fenugreek, etc. There you can also acquire a vegetable and fruit juicer, which will make it possible to squeeze fresh juices in your own home.

Salt and all sharp, irritating spices, such as white pepper, mustard, black pepper, etc. must be excluded. When you get accustomed to eating fresh, raw fruits and vegetables you will soon find that they taste delectable even without any seasoning. Even steamed vegetables and baked potatoes taste excellent without salt. This is also true with whole grain breads and cereals. If seasoning for salads or cooked dishes is desired, onions, garlic, dill, sage, watercress, paprika, red chili, and many other herb flavorings will give you a wide variety of choice. Kelp, powdered or granulated, can serve as a salt substitute for a beginner. This seaweed product has a mild, salty taste and could be added to various dishes. Of course, sufferers of arthritis should use a great amount of kelp as a food supplement—it is an extremely beneficial biological therapeutic agent in arthritis.

THE PROGRAM OF BIOLOGICAL TREATMENTS OF ARTHRITIS: THERAPEUTIC FASTING

Posted by admin

The rudimentary biological measure considered fundamental by most clinics successfully applying biological principles in the treatment of arthritis is fasting.

Although fasting is one of the oldest therapeutic methods known to man and has been a dependable curative measure throughout medical history, the present drug-oriented, orthodox medical doctor has little understanding, and even less appreciation, of its remarkable benefits.

Biologically oriented doctors, however, consider fasting to be singularly the most important curative measure in treatment of arthritis. Some of them disagree as to the length of fasting, but all of them, without exception, use fasts in their program of treatments.

Dr. Otto Buchinger, Jr., M.D., of Fasten-Sanatorium am Bombey, Bad Pyrmont, Germany, is perhaps the world s foremost authority on fasting. He has experience with over 50,000 fasts which he and his father, Dr. Otto Buchinger, Sr., directed and supervised at their clinics. At present his sanatorium accepts 85 patients ranging from afflictions of arthritis to high blood pressure; cancer; liver, kidney, and bladder diseases; and practically any other kind of known disease. Of these, 90 per cent are treated by fasts, ranging from one week to 60 days.

Similarly, all Swedish clinics use fasts in their programs. Dr. Lars-Erik Essen, M.D. of the Vita Nova Clinic in Molle, Sweden, is one who takes exception to the long fasting for arthritis. He recommends repeated short fasts—three to five days at a time-followed by a special cleansing diet. The other Swedish clinics—Brandals, Bjorkagarden, Dr. Jern Hamberg’s Alfta Clinic, Kiholms, and others—use fasts of One to six weeks’ duration.
