Arthritis is an issue of toxicity. The body works together as a whole system. When the organs of elimination (liver, kidneys, skin, lungs) are over burdened and there are insufficient nutrients, the body stores toxins that are back-logged into areas it deems as ‘inert’. The blood must remain a specific way to properly carry oxygen. Toxins that the liver cannot filter from the blood are dumped into the lymphatic system and pulsed out back into the blood when it can filter more. As things accumulate, joint spaces are used to store toxic material and can then cause localized inflammation and subsequent calcification. The typical arthritic complaints one develops over time are caused by these accumulations. Even rheumatoid arthritis is due to toxicity, it’s just that it is due to an infectious agent, and the immune system is trying to attack the tissue, the only recourse to destroying the parasitic host. This is called ‘auto-immune’ but why we see “self attack” is due to something in the cells that should not be there. The body is brilliant.

To heal arthritis, detoxify the organ systems, increase key nutrients and balance the immune system. Assist all the routes of elimination to work properly once again. To help the crystallized deposits return to solution (blood to liver and kidneys), drink parsley and corn silk tea 2 cups daily, as well as hibiscus and chia seed water during the day (2L ideally, see below for recipe). Turmeric and boron are both powerful anti-inflammatory medicines. Use my All-Natural Joint Care Pepper Rub which will also support this process and eat a meat free diet while you are healing. Eat a milk, grain and GMO free diet as well, juice often and eat many superfoods. Avoid medication which further damages the organs of elimination and suppresses the proper body mechanics to act as they require to heal the body properly.

HIBISCUS FLOWER & CHIA SEED INFUSION RECIPE

~Chia seeds are packed with protein and are anti-inflammatory!
~Hibiscus flowers are full of antioxidants, reduces hypertention (high blood pressure)
& removes tissue calcification (the main cause of high cholesterol).

Take a large mason jar full of room temperature, pure water. Add 2 tbsp dried hibiscus flowers. Let sit for 4 hours. Strain. Add 2 tbsp chia seeds and STIR, STIR, STIR, or else you will get a big mat of gel. Let sit another 20-30 minutes, drink this all day. Chew some of the seeds for better protein availability. Make a few jars at a time to store in the fridge so you always have some available.

Bonus: Add 1 cup kombucha and 1/2 fresh lemon squeezed into it and drink it all day! After 2 weeks change it to peppermint leaves or another botanical herb for a week and then bring back the hibiscus again. Give your body that diversity.
