On the menu marked SUITABLE FOR ARTHRITICS the first difference you will note is the absence of fruit juices. Drinking fruit juice will devour, delay, or change the power of oils. Your bread is listed as the whole-wheat variety, and toasted. Chew it well. The butter on the toast will start the oil flowing.
When eggs are served, it is wise to soft-boil them. When substituting cereal for eggs, select a good one like porridge. We want to avoid refined and excessively starchy cereal. In any event, do not use sugar on cereals. If cereal is eaten at breakfast, be sure that the milk you pour on it is of room temperature.
Do you feel that you must have more vitamin C? Then try a more concentrated supplement of vitamin C, use bottled tablets of ascorbic acid. This commercial preparation may be added to any portion of the breakfast. Or liquid vitamin C in oil form can be bought at chemists, and used at breakfast time. This is even better.
End your morning meal with lukewarm or room temperature milk, not water. This will keep the flow of oil mounting and rolling into your body. If you drink coffee in place of milk, drink it black and shift it to the beginning of the meal.
LUNCHEON can be a waste of time, if you don’t understand the correct positioning of foods. That is, you will be gaining no ground in your fight against arthritis, if you eat a meal like this. . . Typical Lunch (Not Recommended for Arthritics)
Ham sandwich. Glass of water.
Pie or cake.
Tea or coffee.
Lunch (Suitable for Arthritics)
Eat your food in the following order:
Grilled cheese sandwich.
Green salad (no oil, no vinegar).
Glass of milk (room temperature or warm) (approximately 600-900 calories).
Most likely, before the average person begins the ham sandwich in the NOT RECOMMENDED LUNCH, he has a harmless-appearing glass of water. He’s wrong, right at the start, if he drank it three or four minutes before eating. It takes your stomach closer to ten minutes to release the water into your system. Otherwise it will just be waiting there in your stomach to dilute the value of your foods.
The ham sandwich may prove of little use, too. Most ham has fat either on its border or interspersed throughout the meat. When digested, ham fat yields no vitamins. It has worthless oil for arthritics. Instead of being improved with butter, the ham is often spread with mustard.
Perhaps the sandwich was started first, and the victim drank water to wash it down. Or his tea was too hot, so he added more water. In either case, the oil-line to the joints is still waiting for oil. And the water is still breaking down, damaging, or slowing up the process of oil-delivery.
Before he finishes the tea or coffee, he starts eating the apple pie. Raw apple is good for you, but baked apple in pie crust is only adding starches to your system—cheapening whatever oil is present. The more starches, the harder it is to recover from arthritis.
Adding cream or milk to iced coffee or tea has two harmful effects. It results in poor digestion of dietary oil. It also forces the gall-bladder to re-split the cheap oils coming from the ham and the dessert. No wonder your bloodstream cannot deliver the necessary oils. And you are inviting a gall-bladder condition.
If health charts cannot be relied upon—as we saw in the last chapter—what are the rules which can guide an arthritic to health? One basic instruction takes precedent over all others. Shift the liquids in your diet, or lose the value of your entire meal!
The relationship of foods and liquids, and how to re-align them at meal-time so they will not conflict within your body, will be the subject of this chapter. In many ways, what you are about to read now is the most important part of this whole book.
To make it clear and simple, we will start by considering foods. Then we will go on to liquids, and we will recommend actual breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
There are only five types of food. That is, all foods contain at least one of the following five benefits:
Rarely is anyone in America short of proteins. We are the world’s largest meat consumers, meat packed with protein. Minerals are readily available in any raw vegetable or fruit. Carbohydrates are found in plentiful amounts in bread, cereals, etc. Fats (oils) abound in butter, eggs and milk. Vitamins can be had from fish, fowl and green vegetables.
Suppose, for a test case, we look at a typical family. Suppose they are eating all five classes of food, in the proper proportions. Yet some members of the family are well, and others are ill. Why? Because each of them drink different liquids, at different temperatures, at different times, during and between meals.
Their choice can include milk, tea, coffee, water, beer, or dozens of other liquids. Each of these liquids has a different tension on oils in their food. It is this tension on oils which decides how useful the oil will be to the body. High tension on oils will force your system to use more digestive juices to break down your food. Which means more wear and tear on your organs, particularly the pancreas and gall-bladder.
To show you this process of digestion at work —so that you can see the damage which liquids can do—let’s take a typical day of eating and follow the route of your foods. The day starts with breakfast . . . here are “good” and “bad” menus. . . .
Typical Breakfast (Not Recommended for Arthritics)
Chilled grapefruit juice. Scrambled eggs and bacon. Bread and butter.
Coffee with cream.
Breakfast (Suitable for Arthritics)
Eat your food in the following order:
Buttered whole-wheat toast. Soft-boiled eggs.
Glass of milk (room temperature or warm) (approximately 400 calories).
First, look at the breakfast marked NOT RECOMMENDED FOR ARTHRITICS. It reads like a normal menu for the average person. What’s wrong with it, then?
The foremost error is starting the meal with grapefruit juice. The arthritic is immediately pouring into his empty stomach a bath of astringent juice. He is cutting into oils, and drying out his system. Next, he eats the bacon and eggs with bread and butter. The pouch-like stomach now has six to ten ounces of grapefruit juice joined by scrambled egg and some fatty bacon. Scrambling the egg means its egg-yolk will never be assimilated as oil but as energy. Bacon offers the wrong kind of oil to overcome arthritis.
Cold bread with butter needs more digestive juices to split the oils. Instead, the arthritic should have had warm toast with melted butter.
Lastly, comes the coffee. When the water in coffee gets to oils, like those in butter and eggs, it increases their fattening potential. What we’re looking for is a lubricating potential. A small beaker of cream or milk is added, along with two teaspoonfuls of sugar. Butter and coffee are not compatible. Sugar burns up fat, deteriorates the oils.
If dry cereals are substituted for bacon and eggs, the cereal is usually drowned with cold milk. The temperature of the cold milk will congeal oils, not aid them. As you can see from the above paragraphs, during this simple breakfast the arthritic has made at least seven major mistakes.
Before you use charts, diagrams or special menus, it would be a good idea to determine whether you actually need to change your eating habits. Are you really suffering from any dietary deficiency?
It is simple enough to recognise whether or not your body is being nourished by a balanced diet. These are some warning symptoms:
Colour is missing from your cheeks (protein deficiency or poor protein assimilation).
More and more cavities occur in your teeth (carbohydrate imbalance).
Bones break easily if you fall (mineral deficiency).
Night blindness, or need for stronger eye glasses (vitamin deficiency).
Naturally, there are many more symptoms of diet deficiencies. We have mentioned but a few. However, there are many good books on such subjects available in the library. This book will now return to the subject of arthritis.
Because too many arthritics are over-impressed by “health charts,” we have been trying to point out in this chapter the most obvious shortcomings of such listings.
Again, we maintain that temperature and the order of eating foods are far more important than just “calorie counting.”
In the previous chapters you read the true stories of people who were badly crippled by arthritis. They were treated by conventional medical methods with drugs, injections, x-ray treatments, and surgery without getting better, but after changing to the biological therapies, they were completely cured. Later in this book I will show you many other cases, just as dramatic and real, taken from a long list of hundreds of actual cases which could be cited as proof that these are not isolated cases, that biological methods really work, and that arthritis sufferers indeed can get well!
Yet, you have read and heard on television and radio that “There is no cure for arthritis.” You have been warned that anyone who speaks to the contrary must be a quack or a fraud. Americans have been brainwashed with this propaganda through various communication media for so long that they accept this statement as truth. Cleverly written and professionally acted—with the authoritative aura of white-coated actors—these drug commercials bombard you from the magic screen day-in and day-out, in an endless repetition until you, in fatalistic resignation, giving up all hope of permanent cure, go to the nearest drugstore and buy a bottle of well-advertised painkiller, that promises you “relief.”
But arthritis can be cured! Arthritis sufferers are being cured by the thousands, right now, all over the world, mostly in Europe, but also in the United States. I have seen with my own eyes how patients crippled with arthritis for years, have left their crutches and wheelchairs and walked. I have talked with and interviewed dozens of arthritics who have been cured of arthritis.
The reason why you do not hear about this from your television screen is because there is no money in selling knowledge, truth, education. You cannot pack knowledge in a bright labeled bottle, as the pill manufacturers do, and make a million dollar business out of it
When your doctor tells you that there is no cure for arthritis he means that there is no cure for arthritis with a drug or a knife—because the pharmacological and surgical treatments are virtually the only curative methods accepted and employed by the average orthodox, allopathic medical doctor. And they are 100 per cent correct: There is no cure for arthritis with drug or knife.
But there definitely is a cure for arthritis with biological therapeutic methods. Thousands of arthritis sufferers throughout the world have obtained complete freedom from pain, recession of swollen joints, and disappearance of every trace of this crippling and agonizing disease. There are dozens of clinics and spas in Europe where arthritis is cured today, along with most of the other common ailments and chronic diseases. The biological methods employed by these clinics are: dietetic restrictions, fasting, herbal treatments, juice therapies, biological medicines, heat treatments, massage, manipulations, hydro-therapies, and a number of other drugless treatments. The cases cited in this book were cured by these therapies.
In the following chapters we will discuss in detail all the biological treatments which proved so successful in the reported cases, but first let us briefly analyze what arthritis is, how it develops, and why the conventional medical therapies fail to accomplish a cure.
In Group #2, nine subjects presenting with severe to crippling rheumatoid arthritis were supplied with 50 capsules to be taken in two series, two capsules each morning and evening for seven days, with a seven day interval before repeating the same dosage for 5 1/2 2 more days. Four of these subjects were unable to walk and were accustomed to being transported by wheelchairs. One, her femur being fused at the hip, was unable to achieve a sitting position for wheelchair transport. She could, however, move about slowly on crutches as long as she was accompanied by someone to aid her in maintaining her balance. Otherwise she could only stand or lie down. The remaining four could move about with canes or walkers. All nine subjects presented with pain, inflammation, and marked deformation of nearly all proximal interphalangeal and large joints. Five presented with limited lumbar flexion and pain in the vertebral column. All had difficulty grasping and manipulating common objects.
Within three days of treatment six subjects in the group reported a 30% to 50% decrease in pain and 20% to 30% increase in joint mobility, and three subjects reported little change. Within seven days five subjects reported a 70% to 90% decrease in pain and 70% to 80% increase in joint mobility. Three subjects reported to be totally free of pain with almost complete return of joint mobility and marked improvement in joint deformation. One patient reported no perceptible change.
On the fourteenth day, at the end of the one week interval without treatment, six subjects reported minor continuing improvement; two reported maintaining their improved status, and one continued to show no improvement. Treatment was resumed on the fifteenth day for 5 1/2 2 more days.
By the end of the treatment period all but two subjects reported to be 90% free of pain with return of 70% to 100% mobility. The fused hip joint remained fused, of course, but with a return of over 70% mobility in other joints the subject felt hip surgery now to be worth consideration. The one non-responsive subject proved to have cirrhosis of the liver, which may have been the reason for her inability to respond to treatment.
Further investigation is necessary to determine the role of liver function in this protocol.
