Good life,good food,over forty....gout?

Another day,at work,and my boss was limping today and last week was the same,I asked what's wrong?"I have a good life I enjoy my food,and my bear he said.I heard the name of the disease before,but I ignore it,I am over forty,and I need to know more about it.


I found out that gout is a type of arthritis.


Gout is not a very pleasant disease,is nasty,I checked out my friend feet and I wasn't impressed.I know what you going to say there is drugs for it ,but my friend has high blood pressure and is not that easy.


We have to look for some alternative treatment for gout
.
A gout attack is painful,and often occurs in the big toe joint,my friend case,knee,ankle,and elbow.Alcohol ,overeating,dieting can trigger a gout attack.

That's because many people can have extremely high levels of uric acid in their body, but not show any symptoms of gout.



Some people just naturally store high levels of uric acid and there's no cause for alarm - so long as there is no evidence of gout forming.


However, it is true that gout's most likely to form in those who already have hyperuricemia (high levels of Uric Acid in their blood) and are carrying a few extra pounds...


The connection between gout and being overweight has been proven in various clinical studies.


And for for those who do get gout in a joint, it means that the uric acid in your blood has collected and crystallized... Usually causing your joint to swell up to two or three times it's normal size.


Even a casual brush against a sore, gout-ridden toe can result in you suffering searing agony.

Roughly 2.1 million people in the United States suffer from gout, according to the National Institute of Health...



And 9 out of 10 of those are men, with most of them diagnosed between the ages of 40 and 50.


But, as women head into their 60's and enter menopause their incidence rate of gout increases dramatically.


The condition is rarer in men and women of "average" weight or in people under 40 years of age...


And given that the disease is often linked with being overweight and with a continued build up of uric acid over years, the older a person is when the first symptoms appear the more mild the condition is likely to be...


And not surprisingly, the triggers that cause gout attacks are almost exactly the same for everyone -

For example, in a recent survey was carried out, 133 gout sufferers revealed to us that the food most likely to trigger gout attacks for them was red meat... followed by beer.

After few hours online I found some more information,from people who suffered,and they write more about how to fight gout....read more

Cancer,cancer and more cancer

Few days ago I had a strange dream,where a person,which past away three years ago mention a name of a good friend of us.Soon I remembered my dream I made a phone call and the person has bowel cancer and liver cancer.

  
 The person from  my dream died because of colon cancer.I am not finish yet because I was worried with my bills,and not much work,and looking for some jobs I came across with another bad news.A person very dear to me I admire her hospitality and her kindness lost her home in fire,when she was away for cancer operation.So far so many people are touched by that horrible disease,cancer.

ARTHRITIS

Drugs can alleviate symptoms of artrites, but they do little to alter the underlying disease, which usually continues to degenerate. Dr.Phillip Alexander mentioned also this process of symptom amelioration with ongoing tissue and health deterioration can last for years by which time the overworked liver’s ability to metabolize the drug medications down to non-toxic metabolites is becoming compromised.

As a result of the tired liver’s inability to “keep up” the mild drug side effects experienced at the beginning of treatment are now becoming significant side effects for which more drugs are often prescribed.


Such incapacitation wrought by the side effects of too many drugs per patient is a huge drain on the human capital of the nation and, via the pharmaceutical benefit scheme (PBS), a massive and unnecessary drain on the nations financial reserves soaking up government revenue that could be spent more beneficially elsewhere.



Arthritis for instance is a wide spread chronic degenerative condition that costs the nation a fortune via the PBS.

The drugs used to treat the symptoms of arthritis, in some cases, aggravate and perpetuate the disease process.

Bones and cartilage are constantly being worn away and re-built as are the other joint tissues - ligaments, tendons and synovial membranes.

CAUSES:

There are a number of reasons for joint (indeed all) tissue decay.

Uncontrolled oxidation is the main one. Most joint decay is a result of rust. Our joints don’t wear out so much as that they rust out.

Free radical chemicals cause joints to rust.

Free radical chemicals are many and varied; they can be the chemical medicines we take, the pollutants from our air, water and food (chemical flavourings, colourings and preservatives),
or the endotoxins from bacterial or viral infections, or naturally occurring oxygen free radicals in the air we breathe.

Five percent of the oxygen we breathe in escapes the orderly process of the energy cycle and escapes off into the body to oxidize = inflame tissue. People who exercise hard and often, breathe in 20 times more oxygen than sedentary people, which is one reason their joints wear out faster if they don’t take supplementary antioxidants.

Errors of metabolism can produce powerful free radicals such as the toxic chemical homocysteine that is produced in greater quantity in vitamin B6, B12, and folic acid deficient people.

Homocysteine both attacks the joints directly and agitates the immune system to attack them as typical auto-immune reactions.

Low levels of the hormones oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone can cause a particular part of the immune system called Th1 cellular immunity to run wild. Increased Th1 activity is a major promoter of rheumatoid arthritis even in young women. Rheumatoid arthritis suffering women in their twenties and thirties often have trouble conceiving a pregnancy, their oestrogen and progesterone levels are so low.

Multiple micronutrient (vitamin, mineral, essential fatty acid, mixed anti oxidants etc) deficiency is a major cause of joint tissue deterioration because:

The reality is that today we cannot get from our food the quantity of micro nutrients needed to keep the parallel processes of joint decay and regeneration in balance.

Though the evidence has not been missed by the American Medical Association AMA which has ratified it to the point of officially advising all Americans (see AMA journal – JAMA 2002; 287:3116-29) to take a multi vitamin and mineral supplement every day to help prevent chronic degenerative disease.

What is Cancer ?

Human body is made up of trilions cells.Throughout our life,these cells wear out,and are replaced with new cells.If the new cells are imperfect,the immune system recognizes these and destroy them.
Cancer develops when cell duplication goes wrong and for some reason the immune system does not destroy the abnormal cells.
In today's toxic world ,we al develop abnormal cells from time to time but the immune system is able to function and destroy them before they proceed to multiply.
The cancer cells grow where they first occurred,sometimes,small clumps can break of and travel in the blood to other parts of the body,and start growing there - so called metastases or cancer secondaries.
Important way of preventing is to suport the body's immune system.

Our immune system is so powerful,cancer should never be considered incurable.

Vitamin C can perform miracles

A tremendous amount of research has proved that vitamins C is vitally important in overcoming infections. During the few decades Dr.Fred R.Klenner has used massive quantities of vitamin C in treating patients of all ages suffering from such serious illnesses as encephalitis,meningitis,poliomyelitis,virus pneumonia,tetanus,or lockjaw,and many other infections.usualy those patients had an extremely high fever,,unconscious,and many had been given up earlier by physicians who believed them to be beyond help; some appeared to be dying, and in one case rigor mortis had actually set in.

Scars can be prevented

Vitamin E is good to prevent scars from burns, and often soothes the pain is well. Research indicates that vitamin E is unique in playing a role in a wider variety of body functions than almost any other nutrient. Reports from others countries, that vitamin E is valuable preventing miscarriages, and treating heart disease.

 Thus vitamin E applied locally and taken internally has proved invaluable during skin grafting. An abnormality in which scar tissue forms on the penis, causing pain on erection and often resulting in impotency Peyronie’s disease, has been corrected, within few months, when 200 or 300 milligrams of vitamin E have been given daily.

Facial scars, which often cause life-long psychological damage, can be prevented by vitamin E and sometimes old scars can be removed.


Scars inside the body. The contraction of scar tissue formed in the urinary bladder as a result of ulcers it to shrink until almost no urine can be held, when vitamin E has been given, the capacity of the bladder has been increased, and pain subsided.
