Let's talk a little about arthritis today. You might think it is crazy for me to be able to talk about this with some personal experience, begins I am only 29 years young. Due to major complications with my wrist injury, I have arthritis in my wrist joint. I have no cartilage, the covering and the shock absorber for the bones, surrounding my ulna as well as some of the bones up in my hand, I rub bone on bone. For some relief, my orthopedist put in 10 mm of bone graphing into my radius, which healed down after having shattered it. Beings I like to do preventative care, there are many steps I am taking to help prevent the arthritis I already have from becoming worse and trying to help more from forming, at least prolonging it as much as I can.

Steps I am taking:
1. Moving. Moving joints and our bodies in general is very important. By moving, we help to bring fluid into the joint, oxygen rich blood, move the lymph and take away the bad stuff. If you need to lose weight, moving is a no brainer. Weight lose can also be a huge help to those with arthritis.
2. Eating an anti-inflammatory diet. Inflammation is at the root of every disease and problem. It is a major factor today due to the VERY inflammatory diet most people eat. I do this by not eating excesses amounts of omega 6 fatty acids, very little grains, no processed foods, good sources of cholesterol and saturated fat and eating more omega 3 fatty acids.
3. Drinking raw apple cider vinegar, water and honey. I know I have talked about the Vermont method, as it is sometimes called, for other health issues, working out and cold and flue prevention. One of the things this is best known for and started for, was helping arthritis as well as preventing it. What is theorized, is the vinegar helps to prevent the build up of calcium in the joint, which can lead to arthritis, as well as other problems. For many people this does wonders for their arthritis.
4. Speaking of calcium in the wrong places, I eat a lot of Vit. A rich foods, butter, cream, raw milk, egg yolks from pastured animals. Vit. A is an activator vitamin, as Dr. Price called them. We have to have these activators so our bodies know what to do with the other vitamins and minerals we consume. Without Vit. A, calcium does not work properly. Instead of going to the bones and teeth, nerves, where calcium is suppose to go, it goes to the joints, the arteries, the eyes, causing arthritis, arteriosclerosis and glaucoma. Vit. A is very important for the body to know how to use calcium, as well as everything else. Do not be afraid of fat!

These are a few of things I am doing to help and prevent arthritis. If you have questions or would like help with your arthritis, please feel free to contact me. I would love to help you.

Saving the world one stick of butter at a time.
God's many blessings upon you in this time of rebirth,
