Healing Protocols

Arthritis and Carpel Tunnel Healing Protocol

by Ben Taylor

This protocol for the healing of Arthritis and Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. One may be dealing with either or both, but this protocol will generally work on both. Of all our protocols, this one probably has the highest success rate.

The following serving suggestions are for therapeutic use and accelerated healing. When the symptoms are gone, which is usually accomplished in 2-8 weeks depending on the severity of the problem, one can then go to the suggested maintenance serving on the bottle.

Joint Care – Take 1 oz. 2-3 times per day (morning, noon, and night)

Enzyme Complex – Take 1 tablet with each serving of Joint Care to enhance the digestion and absorption.

Hyaluronic Acid– Take 1-2 capsules 3 times per day. This provides the fluid matrix for joint lubrication, skin hydration, and skin repair.

MSM– Take 1000 mg (1 capsule) three times per day with 3-5 Enzyme tablets on an empty stomach. High amounts of enzymes will reduce the inflammation and break down the fibrin build up in the joints and around the tendons. It will also improve circulation which accelerates healing.

Membrane Complex (Magnesium, Calcium, & Potassium)- Take 2 capsules morning and mid-day and 3-5 capsules at bedtime. Doing a larger amount at bedtime will enhance your relaxation and sleep and promote the healing process.

Colloidal Silver– Take 1-3 teaspoons daily on an empty stomach. Silver kills bacterial, viral, and funga l infections in the joints which is another possible cause of joint problems. Fungal is the most common , especially if you have ever had a Candida/yeast infection,

This is optional, but may be suggested for those conditions that affect the whole body rather than localized (hands, wrist, ankles, etc.). IntraMax Super Therapeutic Vitamin, Mineral, & Herbal Formula– Take 1/4 oz daily for 7 days, then 1/2 oz daily for 7 days, after that you may want to finish the bottle at 1 oz daily. This is one of the very best vitamin, mineral, and herbal formulas on the market and will provide your body with most of the essential trace minerals and vitamins to enhance the healing process. We generally recommend mixing this 50/50 with 75 Plant Derived Colloidal Minerals and then taking 1-2 oz. per day during the healing period.

(Note: Generally the dosages indicated on the bottles are for maintenance purposes and are not therapeutic amounts One may need therapeutic amounts for 2-8 weeks, but after your symptoms are gone, you will probably only need the minimum daily maintenance amounts.

Healing our bodies is no accident. If this protocol is diligently followed, most people have noticeable relief in 1-3 weeks.


Gluten-free Diet Possible Treatment for Arthritis

by Sárka-Jonae Miller

(The Best Years in Life) Eating foods containing gluten could lead to rheumatoid arthritis, a disease characterized by inflammation and pain in the joints. Gluten allergies lead to damage in the small intestine when people eat gluten, which is a protein found in most grains. Breads and pasta are just some of the common foods that contain gluten. People who are gluten intolerant or allergic may experience side effects from eating gluten, but some people do not have symptoms and could be unknowingly increasing their risk of rheumatoid arthritis.

Gluten Intolerance and Allergy

Having a gluten intolerance means that the body has a hard time digesting the gluten found in grains like wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats. If not managed, a gluten intolerance may lead to serious conditions such as diabetes and intestinal cancer.

A gluten intolerance or allergy may cause aching joints, which is also a symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. Additional symptoms include muscle cramps, hair loss, nausea, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, mouth ulcers and seizures.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease disease, meaning it causes the body’s immune system to attack healthy tissue. The cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown to conventional medical practitioners. Women get RA more often than men and the condition generally presents during middle age.

Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include pain and stiffness in the joints on both sides of the body. Most often this affects the fingers, wrists, knees, feet and ankles. Joints may also feel tender or warm during periods of inactivity. Deformity in the joints can occur over time.

Gluten and Autoimmune Response

When bacteria enters the body, the immune system recognizes the invader as something foreign. It attacks this invader to prevent illness. Unfortunately, in people with rheumatoid arthritis, the body thinks that its own tissue is an invader and attacks it. The intestinal lining gets damaged during these attacks, which allows large food particles to pass through the damaged intestinal wall and get into the body. This condition is known as leaky gut and the autoimmune response. It may contribute to rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, according to Robb Wolf. Wolf is a a former research biochemist and the author of the New York Times bestselling book The Paleo Solution.

For someone who is gluten intolerant, the body attacks grains that contain gluten, leading to intestinal damage. This allows the gluten particles to get into the bloodstream and to the joints, which the immune system then attacks and damages as well.

Dietary Therapy as a Treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis

Dietary therapy may reduce rheumatoid arthritis symptoms by eliminating foods that trigger an autoimmune response, according to an article published in the British Journal of Rheumatotology in June 1993. This therapy may even slow the progression of the disease by eliminating all trigger foods from the diet.

Dietary therapy is also useful as a diagnostic tool to discover unique food triggers. The therapy begins with eliminating every possible food trigger for arthritis out of the diet, such as beef, eggs, wheat, oranges, milk, peanuts, malt and soy. Food is then reintroduced one at a time to see if a person reacts to a particular item.
