Arthritis; it's not the beginning of the end. (ETL # 5)

As we age, some of us tend to believe that we are destined to have a Sunday thru Saturday pill box. Many ageing Americans are taking pills for high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, and heart medications. If you are prescribed as so much as one pill for any ailment, note that you can reverse that. These pills cost money, whether you have medicaid, medicare, or private insurance; and best believe no one really has that kind of money to be making the pharmaceutical companies pockets larger.

So, I will share with you what your MD may not be telling you. 'EAT TO LIVE'

Put some spice in your life. I for one eat cayenne pepper all the time because it is good for cholesterol (it has gone down over the course of a year without much exercise); but it is also good for Arthritis. Yes, you can take it in pill form but it is just as easy to just sprinkle it on your food ever night too.

Anti-inflammatory foods are also essential to your diet. Cook with a lot of garlic; eat an apple a day; make some fresh ginger tea daily; and when seasoning your food, add turmeric.

Foods to eliminate. This elimination will also help you maintain a healthy weight. Although not a complete list; dairy, soft drinks, flour, sugar, and additives, need to be permanently eliminated.

Supplement your life. Everyone needs supplements. There are just too many good stuff out there that we just can't seem to get them all and the easiest way is to take some vitamins and minerals. If you never heard of MSM, then you should do some research. MSM is sulfur; and this is not on the glucosamine msm neither. MSM is Methylsulfonylmethane. I have been taking the MSM for a little over a week and it has helped my asthma which was starting to act up as soon as the weather changed. My hubby has noticed a little difference with his inflammation that he has in his arm. We are just starting out but we will continue with this supplement, because it has many benefits.

This post is dedicated to my parents. I love you and wish you much health.

How can I forget WATER THERAPY. Water is essential to our health. This type of therapy ask one to drink just four (4) glasses of water when they first rise for the morning; even before brushing your teeth and to not eat until after at least 45min. It is simple and effective. Yes, you will have increased urination and increased bowel movements. Instead of thinking about it as an inconvenience, look at it as what it is; your body doing what it is supposed to be doing - getting rid of waste. It's relation to arthritis,
