is a brief summery of the following information
based on studying with Dr. Bernard Jensen and
more than 25 years in the medical field working
with back pain and arthritis suffers. Dr. Jensen
found that when calcium deposits
crystallize in the joints and in the form of bone
spurs there is a chemical
imbalance in the body that can be reversed.
At his 120 acre healing center in Escondido California
he treated people suffering extreme debilitation
actually being bent over with one inch bone spurs
up and down their spines. In one year of proper
nutrition all the spurs were gone and there was
no evidence of the former problem. We have seen
similar results. If you want to understand the
physiology of how it works read the entire CAPRA

MINERAL WHEY is one of the
best form of whey you can buy. For a less expensive
brand check out your local health food store or
Costco which has cow's whey at a very good
price. Besides reversing calcium deposits in the
body whey powder is a favorite form of protein
of body builders and other athletes because of
its easy to digest excellent muscle building protein.
Essentially what Dr. Jensen
has found is that whey powder in many cases can
assist in balancing the bodies chemistry and putting
the calcium back in solution and reversing osteoarthritis

Goat Milk Magic, pg. 70
Why Goat’s Milk?
Today, over 65% of the world’s population
drink the milk of goats. Goat’s milk is
the most like human milk in composition and is
praised for it’s ready digestibility. Our
bodies can digest goat’s milk in 20 minutes;
conversely it takes 2-3 hours to digest cow’s
milk. Additionally, the composition and size of
goat milk fat globules are 5-10 times smaller
than those found in the milk of cows. Goat’s
milk is an alkaline food and is also naturally
homogenized. The Journal of American Medicine,
the official organization for over 100,000 physicians
in the United States, under the heading of dietetics
and hygiene writes, “The goat is the healthiest
domestic animal known, and it’s milk is
superior in every way to cow’s milk. Goat’s
milk is the ideal food for babies, convalescents,
and invalids, especially those with weakened digestive
powers. Goat’s milk is the purest, most
healthful, and most complete food known.”
Why do we need the minerals in Capra Mineral Whey?
Since 90% of the minerals in milk are contained
in the whey, CMW minerals are a natural part of
the microstructure of concentrated whey. Nutrient
intake works best when groups of nutrients, including
minerals, are available in the digestive tract
at the same time. CMW is a concentrated food that
contains minerals in naturally occurring combinations
that are well assimilated. Doctor’s and
nutritionists agree that getting minerals from
foods is better than getting them from manufactured,
isolated, and inorganic products. Senate Document
#264, 74th Congress, 2nd Session, claims there
are serious nutritional deficiencies developing
in this country because our food is lacking in
certain minerals and trace elements needed by
people to stay healthy. This claim was made in
1936! If concerns about the quality of our food
were raised over 60 years ago, where does that
leave us today? The obvious conclusion is supplying
our bodies with minerals from highly concentrated,
whole food sources. What an excellent description
of Capra Mineral Whey!

Sodium + Potassium
A necessary and beneficial combination.
Sodium is healthy?
Chronic indigestion, intestinal irritation, constipation,
ulcers and other stomach disorders as well as
joint troubles such as arthritis, rheumatism and
osteoporosis are often signs that the bio-organic
sodium is deficient in the body. Reserve supplies
of sodium are stored in joints, ligaments, and
lymph fluid, but chiefly in the walls of the stomach
and small bowel. This makes the tissues of the
stomach highly alkaline, which is needed to withstand
the hydrochloric acid normally produced in the
stomach. If it were not for the presence of sodium,
the stomach walls would be destroyed by the acid
in these tissues.
Acids are produced in the body through devitalized
foods, stress, mental strain, etc. When this occurs
sodium is withdrawn from the above mentioned sights
to neutralize the acid. If we overdraw from the
sodium reserve in the stomach it will be withdrawn
from the joints and ligaments and they will suffer
lack. This is because the blood, in attempt to
maintain chemical balance, will borrow sodium,
but calcium will remain in the joints causing
pain and rigidness that is so evidently common
Remember, bio-organic sodium is food sodium, not
to be confused with table salt sodium, NaCl, which
is processed at extreme heat using many chemical
procedures, including bleaching, to get the finished
product. The stomach, intestines, joints, and
ligaments are sodium organs and are in constant
need of food sodium.
Potassium: necessary for a peak performance
Heart irregularity, fatigue and immune deficiencies,
along with acid alkaline imbalance may signal
bio-organic potassium deficiencies. Potassium
is primarily stored in the muscles (including
the heart muscle). It’s functions include
neutralizing acid wastes and, with the help of
sodium, controlling the acid alkaline balance
in the muscles.
Potassium and Sodium perform many of the same
functions and are nearly always found together
in the body. Second only to breathing and maintaining
heartbeat the most important metabolic function
our bodies perform is to maintain a specific pH.
Electrolytes, chiefly sodium and potassium, keep
the pH balance in our bodies nearly constant.
Q: What does the term “trace minerals”
or “trace elements” mean?
A: Minerals are divided into two groups. Macro
minerals (sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus,
etc.) are needed in fairly large amounts. Micro,
or trace, minerals (copper, zinc, manganese, vanadium,
cobalt, molybdenum, etc.) are needed in very small
amounts. Although minimal in size, trace
minerals are a critical factor in maintaining
a proper balance of health. CMW contains an abundance
of both macro and micro minerals.
Q: Does CMW have electrolytes? What do they do?
A: Yes, the most plentiful mineral ingredients
in CMW are electrolytes (sodium, potassium, magnesium,
calcium, chloride, and phosphorus). Electrolytes
are electrically charged ions, positive and negative,
which are capable of conducting electricity in
a liquid. They help maintain the membrane potentials
of cells and are crucially involved in muscle
function, high energy levels, heart activity,
and the pH balance in the blood and tissues.
Q: Are CMW minerals helpful to enzymes in the
A: Definitely! There are over 3,000 active enzymes
in every cell of the body! An entire “family”
of enzymes are called metalloenzymes because one
or more metallic minerals play an essential role
in their function. For example, copper is a key
element in many enzymes that build or tear down
body tissue. Manganese is used by enzymes needed
to utilize several vitamins. Zinc is used in over
80 enzymes that are needed by everyone.
Q: Can I still take the product if I am lactose
A: Many people who are lactose intolerant enjoy
taking CMW. It is wise, with any medical condition,
to consult your doctor before you begin using
a new product.
Q: Is there a “best way” to take CMW?
A: CMW is available in the capsule or powder form.
We suggest five capsules three times per day or
two tablespoons per day of the bulk powder. The
most common way of taking the CMW powder is mixing
one tablespoon in a cup of warm water. Some customers
like CMW in vegetable juices like celery, beet,
carrot, or tomato juice. Others enjoy adding it
to tea, yogurt, soup, and casseroles, or sprinkling
it on top of salads or fruit.

Joel Wallach's lifetime of research including
one of the most exhaustive studies in history
at The National Institute of Health in our
opinion qualifies him as one of the most knowledgeable
scientist / nutritionist / phisicians in the
world. He helped formulate the nutritional
supplements we feel are the best available.
Dr. Joel Wallach's research has led him to
conclude that most of
us will die from nutritional deficiencies.
We need 90+
nutrients a day and if we are not getting
these we are a victim of chronic malnutrition.
these supplements we have found a simple
affordable way to give ourselves and our families
the peace of mind to know that we are not
nutritionally deficient and can live a
long and healthy life without the complications
of chronic degenerative diseases that are
the scorge of modern society. You may want

Start Pack - Might 90.
Joel Wallach is a science graduate and a veterinarian
who has been nominated for the Nobel Prize
in 1991 for his excellent service to the medical
field. He was born and raised in Missouri
and obtained his degree for Agriculture in
1962. After obtaining the degree, he worked
as a veterinarian for 30 years and did research
along with The National Institute of Health
for the biology of natural systems. In the
year 1982 he was able to beccame a Doctor
in Naturopathic Medicine. Then he continued
his hard work and in the year 1988 he was
awarded with a Gold medal from Association
of Eclectic Physicians. He got this medal
for understanding the cause and pathophysiology
of Cystic Fibrosis. 1991 was a remarkable
year for Dr. Joel Wallach as he was nominated
for the Nobel Prize because of his stunning
discoveries in the medical field.
These days Dr. Joel Wallach is going around
the world by sharing the knowledge that he
has gathered from his researches for over
40 years. He has the understanding and knowledge
about living a long healthy life and he is
sharing that knowledge with people all around
the world using CDs, Books, TV shows and radio
shows. Among many other discoveries was his
research into the people of Okinawa and the
likely reason why they are the among the healthiest
and longest lived peoples in the world. Others
studied their lifestyle but even after 30
years the scientists have a clue, it took
Dr. Wallach to find the main factors. He learned
that they used the locally grown wood for
cooking and heating. They put the ashes into
their gardens and added it to their salt.
In the local soils that the trees grew in
were the 60 minerals necessary to healthy
life. By adding the ashes to their soils and
salt they were delivering to their bodies
necessary for a healthy life and that you
can get from these products.
He has written two self help books in order
to guide the general public. In the book entitled
“Let’s play Doctor”, he
has reviewed more than 400 diseases. In that
book he has described his own naturopathic
way of dealing with those diseases. He has
reviewed about the mineral deficiencies in
our diets using his second book which has
been released under the name "Rare Earths:
Forbidden Cures". Doctors always advice
people to eat nutritious food in order to
stay away from diseases. But Dr. Joel Wallach
has figured out that it is practically impossible
to get all the nutrients needed to stay away
According to him, there are 90 essential nutrients
to the human health. He says that it is impossible
for a person to get all these nutrients and
even the deficiency of one nutrient could
lead their life to a disease. He says that
these 90 essential nutrients fall under four
categories as 16 amino acids, 3 fatty acids,
12 vitamins and 60 minerals. These inventions
were able to create some revolutionary ideas
within the minds of people. Therefore Dr.
Joel Wallach is invited to conduct guest lectures
and he does about 300 live lectures per year.
creation continues until about the age thirty
to thirty-five years.1 After that bone loss
occurs at an annual rate of 0.5% to 2%, which
increases in women for ten years after menopause.2
health is influenced by diet, exercise,
dietary supplements and lifestyle (eg, smoking).
Optimizing all these factors can help the
process of building strong bones.
Most people take calcium and vitamin D for
bone health and to reduce the risk for osteoporosis.
Research confirms that calcium and vitamin
D can reduce fractures by 16%.3 But when combined
with 45 mg/day MK4, a form of vitamin K2,
clinical trials have shown that fractures
may decrease by more than 80%.4,5 It is so
effective that 45 mg/day MK4 has been approved
by the Ministry of Health in Japan since 1995
for promoting strong bones.6
Exercise can reduce fractures. Qi Gong, yoga
and lifting weights can increase bone mineral
density and strength. They have also been
shown to decrease falls, and falling is how
people break bones.
Some people believe coffee causes bone loss.
A study of 40,000 men and women in Norway
concluded that coffee may cause bone loss
only in those who drink nine or more cups
per day, and only in those people not consuming
the minimum recommended daily amount of calcium.
So if you drink a cup of coffee in the morning,
enjoy it. It is unlikely to harm your bones.
Some medications cause bone loss. Taking oral
prednisone (cortisone, hydrocortisone, dexamethasone,
methylprednisolone) for six months weakens
bones, and acid blocking medications cause
Studies show that 45 mg/day MK4, plus calcium
and vitamin D stops bone loss and builds strong
bones. Osteo-K is the only bone health
product that contains these ingredients. How
does your calcium supplement compare?
Click to view a chart comparing Osteo-K to
other leading calcium supplements, such as
Viactiv, Citracal, Bone-Up, Os-Cal and Caltrate.Osteo-K
contains a 45 mg of MK4™, also called
MK-4™, menaquinone-4 and menatetrenone.
MK4 is a form of Vitamin K2. The Archives
of Internal Medicine confirms that 45 mg of
MK4™ daily can decrease the risk of
vertebral fractures by 60%, hip fractures
by 71% and all nonvertebral fractures by 81%.
Calcium and vitamin D decrease how fast people
lose bone minerals; however, vitamin K2 in
the amounts found in Osteo-K have been shown
to actually increase bone mineral density
and decrease fracture risk.
Don't be fooled by other bone health formulas
that contain vitamin K. Only Osteo-K contains
the amount and form used in clinical trials--45
milligrams (nearly all other formulas contain
much smaller amounts, measured in micrograms,
which can be hundreds of times less than what's
in Osteo-K). And other products contain MK7,
another form of vitamin K, but which has never
been shown in clinical trials to reduce fractures.
Only MK4 reduces fractures. MK4 (45 mg daily)
is so effective that it's been an approved
by the Ministry of Health in Japan since 1995
for the treatment of osteoporosis.
MK4 (45 mg/d) alone and in combination with
vitamin D3 and calcium matches or exceeds
the benefits in clinical trials of Fosamax,
Actonel and Boniva without the dangerous side
MK4 exerts a powerful influence on promoting
bone health and is one of the most frequently
prescribed nutrients in Japan for growing
strong bones and decreasing fractures. MK4
is a fat soluble vitamin that is a coenzyme
for a vitamin K-dependent carboxylase enzyme
catalyzing the carboxylation of the amino
acid, glutamic acid, resulting in its conversion
to gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla).
Although vitamin K-dependent gamma-carboxylation
occurs only on specific glutamic acid residues
in a small number of proteins, it is critical
to the calcium-binding function of those proteins.
Three vitamin-K dependent proteins have been
isolated in bone. Osteocalcin is a protein
synthesized by osteoblasts (bone forming cells).
The synthesis of osteocalcin by osteoblasts
is regulated by the active form of vitamin
D, 1,25(OH)2D3 or calcitriol. The mineral-binding
capacity of osteocalcin requires vitamin K-dependent
gamma-carboxylation of three glutamic acid
Matrix Gla protein (MGP) has been found in
bone, cartilage, and soft tissue, including
blood vessels. The results of animal studies
suggest MGP prevents the calcification of
soft tissue and cartilage, while facilitating
normal bone growth and development.
Vitamin D3, the active form of vitamin D,
is involved in many physiological processes.
It increases calcium absorption, and has been
shown in clinical trials alone and in combination
with MK4 and calcium, to reduce fracture risk
Calcium is essential for bones and teeth,
heart, nerves, muscles, and blood clotting.
About 99% of the calcium in the body is found
in bones and teeth, while the other 1% is
found in the blood and soft tissue. Calcium
supplementation has been shown in clinical
trials to increase bone mineral density. Providing
supplemental calcium is the standard of care
for people with low bone mineral density.
SAFETY: From a large number of clinical trials
using dosages in excess of 40 mg/day, there
were no reports of side effects associated
with any type of hypercoagulable (increased
blood clotting) state. Both animal and clinical
studies support the conclusion that vitamin
K2 has no dangerous effects on blood clotting.
However, it should be noted that the anticoagulant
effect of warfarin, functioning by its interference
with the clotting effect of vitamin K, can
be offset with as little as 1 mg of vitamin
K. If you are on anticoagulant therapy (e.g.,
taking warfarin), you should not take Osteo-K.
For everyone else, Osteo-K is safe.
Directions: Take three capsules twice daily
More than forty citations support the ingredients
in Osteo-K for bone and cardiovascular health.

fatty acids in fish, flax oil and gamma
linolenic acid (GLA) in promrose oil have anti-inflammatory
effects on arthritic conditions. Fish oil contains
EPA (eiscosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaneoic
acid), whild flax oil contains alpha-linolenic acid
(ALA). The body uses these essential fatty acids
to make various prostaglandins and leukotrienes,
substances that inhibit the inflammatory response
and pain (Omega-3 fatty acids in inflammation and
autoimmune diseases. J Am Aol Nut 2002;

arthritis ia an autoimmune disease and studies show
that when RA patients suplement with EPA and DHA,
their symptoms improve.
Consumption of GLA in flax oil may increase the
number of favorable prostaglandins and leukotrienes,
lowering inflammation. Gamma linolenic acid (GLA)
is a healthy fatty acid found in evening primrose
oil and borage oil that reduces swelling and pain
in arthritic joints. A new study found that supplementing
with omega-3 fatty acids, in combination with reduction
of omega-6 fatty acids, and adequate intake of monounsaturated

About Omega-3 Which Is A Natural
Found In Fish Oil, Flax Seed, Tofu and Other Foods
There is a superstar among nutrients,
truly a "comeback kid." During the
past year, vitamin D long labeled the "sunshine
vitamin" and known for its importance
in building strong bones, has skyrocketed
to the top of many health-conscious Americans'
"must-take" supplement list.
It has been called the new "C"
the "It" nutrient, and the new aspirin.
"Vitamin D has literally been resurrected,"
says physician and nutritional expert Ray
Sahelian, author of Mind Boosters: A Guide
to Natural Supplements That Enhance Your Mind,
Memory and Mood.
Has the importance of vitamin
D been overhyped? "No," Sahelian
tells Newsmax. "It's very important.
Recent studies have shown how important vitamin
D is, especially in reducing or preventing
cancer and reducing
risk of autoimmune diseases."
Since the sun is a vital source
of vitamin D, and few foods are rich sources
(egg yolks and fatty fish are exceptions),
many Americans don't get enough, especially
during Northern winters. Even people who live
in sunny climates often don't get the 10 to
20 minutes of sun exposure needed to produce
an adequate amount, Sahelian says. And with
the sun's connection to aging skin and skin
cancer, many people intentionally avoid exposing
their skin to sunlight.
In fact, the National Center for
Health Statistics says at least 36 percent
of Americans are deficient, and research released
in March showed that 1 in 7 teenagers is deficient.
Vitamin D deficiency has been
linked to a long list of ills, including cardiovascular
disease and diabetes, while adequate amounts
significantly enhance health. The list of
vitamin D benefits is long and varied:
Prevents cardiovascular disease. Adequate
amounts lower hypertension risk while deficiencies
raise the risk of stroke, heart attack, or
• Helps prevent multiple sclerosis
• Strengthens bones and lowers
the risk of falls
• Eases winter depression
• Lowers risk of many forms of
• Prevents or delays the onset
of diabetes, both Types 1 and 2
• Boosts immunity to tuberculosis
• Contgrols weight and body fat
• Lowers the risk of gum disease
• Slows aging by up to five years
• Prevents cognitive decline in
• Lowers the risk of colds and
• Promotes liver health. More
than 92 percent of patients with chronic liver
disorders are vitamin D deficient
• Controls pain. Mayo Clinic studies
found that patients with low levels of vitamin
D require twice as much pain medication, and
that 93 percent of people with painful chronic
conditions such as fibromyalgia are deficient.
The government recommends 400
IU daily, but many experts believe much more
is needed for optimal health. Vitamin D supplements
are inexpensive and realily available. "Most
experts believe that calciferols - vitmain
D-3 - is the most potent form," Sahelian
safe, effective dose is thought to be 1,000
IU daily. Although Sahelian says some doctors
are prescribing up to 2,000 IU a Day, he urges
caution. "I'd recommend no more than
1,000 IU daily until we learn more."

Because of its ability to reduce inflammation,

herbs working in tandem.
Therapy and Arthritis
with proper nutrition which can often remediate
and reverse arthritis, physical activity
is very important. Moving the joints, exercising
the bodies musculoskeletal system and stimulating
blood circulation and lymph flow are all
part of a healthy arthritis reversal program.
One of the easiest ways to get a wonderful,
low stress, low impact full body, blood/lymph
circulation and joint movement experience
is to use an inversion table. Stasis or
lack of movement in the joints, especially
arthritis in the spinal column responds
wonderfully to proper inversion therapy.
In our more than 30 years experience in
this field we have seen many cases of spinal
stenosis, bone spurs along the spine and
of course thousands of cases of compressed
discs and sciatica helped using an inversion
table. The therapy is easy. Once you are
acclimated to inversion which only takes
a few days of gentle incline you can start
a mild rocking
motion. Using the Traction
Handles which are standard on the EP-950
Inversion Table you can start a gentle
rocking motion. When you go back to a 40
degree angle for example the joints of the
spine are separated and fluid pulled in
to the disc capsule, when you come upright
with your feet close to the ground the spine
is compressed and fluid forced out. This
accordion like pumping action can work wonders
for oxygenation, removal of waste products,
stimulating healing, regeneration and keeping
your body young and subtle.

advanced, my program should help.
I have had excellent success in dissolving
calcium deposits and spurs from those
who had osteoarthritis.
fact Dr. Waterson, a medical doctor
from Scottsdale, Arizona, used to
visit my Ranch and watch how my program
of nutrition and exercise affected
people with different diseases. Once
he showed me six photographs of a
man's knee, taken over a year and
a half, showing the progressive reduction
of a large calcium spur down to nothing.
Calcium deposits can be reversed.
Dr. Waterson used only my methods
with his patient.
have also worked with Dr. Henry G.
Bieler of Pasadena, author of Food
Is Your Best Medicine, showing
him my nutritional program. I worked
with him on over 500 cases, with many
wonderful results, including arthritis
cases. His book was based on his success
in treating various rheumatoid problems
with injections and oral administration
of hydrocholoric acid. His success
was due to improvement of protien
people with rheumatoid problems would
benefit from taking digestive aid
tablets and foods high in sodium
(the correct form) . The stomach wall
uses a good deal of sodium in the
process of digestion. When sodium
becomes depleted, it must be replaced
for proper digestion of protein.
my estimation, over 50 percent of
the people in this country have some
form of rheumatoid disturbance, ranging
from slight pain and stiffness in
the morning to the most degenerative
stages. This includes people with
nodules on the joints, bone spurs
and joint problems of all kinds. I
am including osteoporosis (calcium
loss from the bones) because it is
a calcium imbalance problem, even
though it is not a rheumatoid condition.
There are millions of people in this
country who have these conditions,
and my program of diet, exercise and
nutritional supplement could help
many of them, although I cannot say
it will help all.
causes of rheumatioid conditions are
many. Trauma, fatigue, genetic disposition,
sodium deficiency, metabolic disorders,
poor food habits, junk food, high-stress
jobs or lifestyles, drug side effects,
food allergies, chemicalized drinking
water, excessive perspiration (sodium
loss), glandular imbalance, climate,
excessive use of meant and many other
things can contribute to the development
of rhumatoid problems.
problems may lead to or result from
rheumatoid condtiions, but they nearly
always go together. Once the digestive
difficulties begin, the body is unable
to assimilate all the nutrients it
needs. A high percentage of my patients
are deficient in hydrochloric acid,
needed to digest proteins properly.
When we realize that most of our calcium
is from proteins, we can see the problem.
We must work to improve digestion
if we are to take care of rhumatoid
table salt, which is the wrong kind
of sodium, contributes to hardening
of the arteries, and I believe it
contributes to joint troubles as well.
I advise cutting it out of the diet,
or at least, cutting down on the use
of it as much as possible.
people of the United States are on
a calcium craze now. Television advertising
and magazine ads are loaded with new
products claiming to be the solution
to the problem of calcium deficiency.
Osteoporosis and other types of calcium-imbalance
problems, such as osteoarthritis and
rhumatoid arthiritis, are suddenly
in the forefromt of the news.
real is the problem? And, how realistic
are the solution proposed by advertisers?
over 50 years of sanitarium practice,
I have taken care of thousands of
cases o arthritis, and I can tell
you, the problem is very real. And
the reason I have written this book
is because I have found a very real
and lasting answer.
surveys show that American women,
aged 16 to 50, are geting less than
70% of the recommended daily allowance
of calcium, which is 1000 mg. An advertisement
by Kraft, the well-known U.S. manufacturer
of processed cheese, claims that 50%
of American children are getting less
than their recommended daily allowance
of calcium. They are urging parents
to give their children more cheese.
I believe these reports. I believe
that a high percentage of Americans
do not get enough calcium -- or at
least not enough of the right kind
of calcium. But, I don't believe that
taking some of the highly advertised
calcium supplements will necessarily
of all, I want you to notice that
most of the remedies offered for the
pain and stiffness of arthritis are
for relief only. They don't
pretend to get at the cause
of the problem. They don't offer correction.
people with arthritis or other painful
rhumatic conditions just want to
get rid of the pain. The don't realize
these are unseen causes inside the
body that are producing the pain.
I don't care how much Advil, Tylenol
or asprin you take, the pain will
always return until you make up
your mind to go after the cause
of the problem and get rid of it.
Most people and their doctors look
at pain as a localized thing, and
that's the way they treat it. I
believe that 90% of our aches and
pains are reflex pain from some
other part of the body, you can't
treat the local site of pain, which
is a symptom only, and get rid of
its deeper cause in some other part
of the body.
drugs the answer? In two recent experiments,
one at the University of California's
San Diego Medical Center, new drugs
were tested. Improvement was found
with both drugs, although side effects
were found for one, and after it was
stopped, symptoms b became worse than
ever. No doubt the other has side
effects too--because all drugs have
side effects. The problem with drugs
is that they disturb the body chemistry,
cause dangerous side effects and leave
toxic residues in the body. Drugs
tend to relieve symptoms without getting
at the underlying cause, and, although
drugs can alter the body chemistry,
they cannot rebuild tissue, they cannot
replace old tissue with new, which
is what is required for complete healing
to take place.
age 50, when rheumatic conditions
begin to appear in the majority of
those who get them, there is 20% lowered
function in all parts of the body,
due to aging. Elimination of wastes
is retarded. The skin becomes dry.
Thyroid function is lower, reducing
glandular function throughout the
body and lowering the metabolism.
To develop a realistic program for
taking care of arthritis and other
rheumatic conditions, we need to recognize
what is going on in the whole body
and take care of everything--toxic
settlements, mineral deficiencies
and diminished immunity.
wholistic approach to taking care
of a disease or condition is to build
up the health of the whole body until
the body is strong enough to throw
off the problem. In the case of rheumatid
conditions, we need to use iodine
for the thyroid, exercise and hawthorn
berry tea for the circulation, sufficient
liquid intake and KB-11 tea to take
care of the kidneys, fresh vegetables
and fruits to provide enough natural
fiber to increase bowel elimination,
foods high in calcium, sodium and
potassium to neutralize excess body
acids, vitamin D to help with calcium
assimilation, and a proper diet to
meet all nutrient needs and correct
deficiencies. this is just an idea
of a few things to take care of a
few problems that exist. Each person
is different having different vital
organ problems that would need other
types of corrective measures. This
is a wholistic approach, the way of
working with nature instead of trying
to find shortcuts by man's way.
need to understand that every gland,
organ and tissue in the body affects
every other part of the body. We live
in an acid-producing country where
the pressures of our jobs, urban living
and relationships produce a lot of
nerve acids. We have to live with
environmental pollution, the problems
of a high¬speed technological
society, financial troubles and devitalized,
processed foods that do not nourish
our bodies properly.
problem with most commercially produced
calcium supplements is that they are
not balanced for human assimilation.
Calcium must be balanced with magnesium,
and if there is too much or too little
of one or the other, it cannot be
used properly by the body. There must
be enough vitamin D in the body to
help assimilate calcium. Without exercise,
our bodies can't take in sufficient
calcium as needed, even if we take
calcium pills with three times the
recommended daily allowance. It is
excreted from the body instead.
supplements alone are not the answer
in calcium deficiency problems. We
need to usc high calcium foods, instead.
Only nature combines calcium with
the right balance of other minerals,
enzymes and vitamins.
the other hand, many people who are
developing enlarged joints and calcium
spurs feel they are caused by taking
too much calcium. This is not usually
the case. The trouble is usually calcium-sodium
imbalance in the body, resulting in
calcium coming out of solution in
the blood and depositing in the joints.
We still need calcium, but we need
to have a diet high in natural sodium
foods at the same time.
are other problems. A University of
Washington study showed that caffeine,
as found in coffee, tea, chocolate
and most soft drinks, increases calcium
loss in the body by double. Sugar
leaches calcium out of the body. By
the way, these so-called foods, are
very acid forming. You don‘t
need more acid foods of this kind
to add to the rheumatic acid you already
more milk has been proposed as a solution
to calcium imbalance in arthritis
and osteoporosis, and Dale Alexander,
author of Arthritis and Common
Sense, has had good results giving
milk with a little cod liver oil added
to many people with arthritis. This
is a good remedy for some people,
but I believe we need to take a larger
view of the problem and consider the
needs of the whole body. Milk, for
example, will not take care of the
sodium deficiency which is often the
cause of calcium imbalance in the
body. The truth is, the average American
has 25% milk products in his diet,
according to USDA figures, and this
is not solving the calcium imbalance
problem for most people.
john Ott found a link between the
ultraviolet in sunlight and arthritis.
Because most people work indoors most
ofthe time, they don`: get enough
ultraviolet from artificial light,
especially fluorescent lights. Window
glass and the glasses most people
wear filter out 85% of the uluaviolet,
and the eyes are unable to take in
this light. Ott's anhritis disappeared
after he broke his glasses while on
vacation in Florida, and he believes
it is very important that we take
in ultraviolet through the eyes every
day. lt doesn`t have to be direct
sunlight. We still get ultraviolet
light when we are outside in the shade
from reflections. I recommend plastic
lenses over glass lenses in glasses,
because they let in 85% o the ultraviolet,
instead of only 15% as regular glass
imbalances can lead to rheumatic conditions.
The thyroid gland not only influences
every other endocrine gland in the
body, but regulates the body's metabolism
and blood levels of calcium . So,
when the thyroid is underactive, the
whole body's energy supply and chemical
balance is affected.
