- Extraordinary research could change the game for arthritis sufferers
- Could antibiotics be behind the rise in asthma cases?
- Shocking! – Why the establishment is going to sell back what they took from us
If you suffer from joint pain, this could be a game-changer…
At New York University, a rheumatologist named Jose Scher has discovered something extraordinary.
The source of rheumatoid arthritis might be found… in your gut!
He suspects the culprit might be that mass of bacteria which live in your gastrointesntial tract, known as microbiomes. In particular, sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to have a bacteria known as Prevotella copri in their intestines than people without the condition.
Scher says: “This is frontier stuff. With the microbiome, we’ve added a new player to the game.”
And it’s not just rheumatoid arthritis that could be caused by your gut…
This bacteria is linked to many other diseases in which your immune system goes haywire and begins to destroy its own tissue. For instance, psoriasis.
Scher is not alone. Many scientists increasingly believe that chronic joint pain and immune-system diseases are triggered by microbiomes. And they suspect a rise in these ailments might be down to the reckless widespread use of antibiotics, which is altering the bacterial balance in our intestines.
For instance, there’s a bacteria in your gut known as Helicobacter pylori. This is slowly dying out in modern times, thanks to our antibiotic use. The trouble is, this bacteria helps reduce the risk of developing asthma problems.
No wonder there’s been such a rise in asthma cases – in the UK, around 5.4 million get treatment for asthma – that’s 1 in every 12 adults!
Scientists are still looking into the exact link between Prevotella copri and your immune system. But they’re working on it. What’s more, they’re investigating new ways to use bacteria as medicine for disorders – and we’ll be sure to let you know.
Of course, it would be typical of the medical establishment…
They sell to you what they took from you in the first place!
Let’s look at it this way…
- Problems like arthritis, psoriasis and asthma are caused by widespread antibiotic use, prescribed by doctors, which is killing off good bacteria in our guts.
- The solution is to put that correct natural bacteria back into our intestines…
- But, of course, this will be SOLD back to us at a huge price, making another pharmaceutical giant a lot of money.
And what are you supposed to do while they get round to developing and packaging new treatment?
Tap your fingers and boil the kettle?
You’re in pain, for goodness sake!
I might only be in my early 40s, but as someone with a family history of arthritis, and a wife with terrible asthma, this is something that deeply concerns me.
However, here are some things you and I can can do now.
How to replenish the good bacteria in your gut
Finnish researchers have discovered that vegan diets can alter the microbiome balance in your gut in a way that improves arthritis symptoms.
However, don’t panic – you don’t have to go that far…
- Instead, lower your meat intake and try a more Mediterranean-style diet. This means plenty of vegetables, fish, fruit and olive oil.
- Try and eat more whole foods including beans, nuts, seeds and whole grains, fruits.
- Cut down on sugar and processed foods.
- Unless it’s absolutely necessary, avoid antibiotics, acid blockers, and anti-inflammatories
- Try anti-inflammatory foods like raw manuka honey. According to Dr Nick Slevin, a specialist at the Manchester Royal Infirmary: “Manuka honey has special anti-inflammatory and anti-infection properties”. The propolis in raw honey is another powerful anti-inflammatory agent. But beware that many shop-bought honeys are over-treated, over-filtered and over-heated.
You should also consider a natural anti-inflammatory supplement. Arpagphytum (Devil’s claw), Ginger and Curcuma, are well known natural pain killers. While Vitamins C, E and Selenium, help destroy free radicals, which can attack the cells, causing stiffness and pain.
You can get all of these in one supplement known as Advance 7, which we highly recommend you try.
