Cure for Arthritis/Rheumatoid??

If you drink at least an 8oz glass of water with fresh squeezed lemon juice, you
may not experience pain associated with autoimmune diseases. I was dx. with
all types of autoimmune disorders after the Persian Gulf War, seen as many specialists as I can count without falling asleep,.Pain meds had caused a great deal of side effects, to incl. anti-inflammatory drugs and steroids. One day this spring, I wasn't feeling too well ..a week earlier I had just seen 4 doctors to incl. a rheumatoid specialist. my stomach was hurting and nauseated from the medicines. I stopped taking them temporarily thinking that the undesired effects would go away, I started drinking purified water room temp. so I decided to throw a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice in, to make it more palatable. I did this every day for a month. and noticed that I hadn't experience any joint pain for the entire month. putting two and two together", the pain had stopped about a week after I started added this lemon juice. To avoid a long story, it is now 7 months later and I haven't had one single pain in my joints; needless to say I haven't been back to any doctor. No meds, not even a Motrin. I'm almost embarrassed to respond to any appointments that have been made. thinking of how might I explain to them that the symptoms are gone, no swelling, nothing", nada".

take it for what it's worth, I was just sharing my personal story.
p.s. forgot to add: I take this water and lemon juice once a day, faithfully.

Welcome to the club of people that know that nature has a cure for all our ills ---- including the so-called "incurable" diseases (that are only incurable by allopathically trained physicians who have only been trained to treat symptoms of problems with DRUGS and SURGERY and RADIATION--but they don't want us to know that). Other things you might try include sea vegetables and Miso. Soldiers who continued to include those in their diets who were exposed to Agent Orange in the VietnamWar, never got cancer while their fellow soldiers who went back on the standard American diet, DID GET CANCER.

From now on for anything you get that is a chronic prblem, you might want to seek out a Naturopathic Doctor, and ND as opposed to an MD. ND's are the experts when it comes to chronic problems. MDs are the ones to go to with ACUTE, sudden, urgent, life or death situations. ND's use safe natural medicines and can restore your robust health by strengthening your immune system. M.Ds can stablize you so that N.D's can help from that point on and bring you back to health.

You may not believe this , but I just cut a slice of lemon about 1/2 inches thick and squeeze and drop into glass of water, The rind and all, the oils have some healing properties.

A variation on that was the detox weight loss program I did some years ago, and plan to do again, that featured hot water with lemon every day. (Among other things, including lowering sugar and dairy, and moderate exercise and lymph therapies)... yeah I did feel really good. I forgot what if felt like to have it... good reminders to get me interested in trying it all over again.

Thank you for sharing. My DH has recently had arthritis pain flaring up in his knees and feet. I have been trying to get him to go to the doctor, but he already had an MRI and knows it is the beginnings of arthritis. They will just put him on pain meds and he doesn't want to take them. I will have him try this!

Thanks yhwhsalomjr,

I will have to start doing that. I think my body will handle that much lemon. Lemon often upsets my stomach.

Keep the MD on your list as well- you may very well need him, as the ND cannot handle all health problems. And, when visiting the MD, be sure to list all the "naturals" you are taking, as many of them have adverse reactions to prescription medication.
I will only keep an MD in mind if i break a limb. For health, i will never ever go back to an MD. The majority of MD's are not trained in nutrition, so bringing them a list of natural things will only confuse them.

Yes, I have heard lemon juice helps as well as vinegar. But both upset my stomach! I had read or heard that maybe the acid part of these helps break up the crystals in the joints? I am currently taking SAM-e, MSM/glucosamine and Omega essential fatty acids for joints, and as long as I exercise, seems to work well. Also just started the mangosteen/acai juice. The jury is still out on that though....

lilypad,

have you tried drinking raw vinegar? it isn't supposed to upset your stomach, whereas the regular vinegar will. and while lemon upsets my stomach, as in lemon ad, i am wondering it that little amount in water may not? i will try it.
