Arthritis, gout, and fibromyalgia can be caused by a systemic yeast infection and are becoming more and more prevalent in todays modern society. These three diseases can be very debilitating and can lead to total disability and a deformation of skeletal bone tissue. Many people lose use of their hands for even common and simple tasks. The pain can be excruciating at times and the person just doesn't want to even move for fear of irritation of the affected area.
Arthritis is also a leading cause of disability in Americans and is a major drain on the US health care system. The estimated cost of treating arthritis, gout, and fibromyalgia was 86.2 billion dollars in 1997. That includes money spent for medical treatment and money lost from being unable to work. This is equivilent to about 1% of the nations gross domestic product. Here it is 10 years later and it has only gotten worse.
On May 15th 2004 in the Orange County Register in the health and Science section they published the results of a survey that found 1 in 4 adults have arthritis. There is also an additional 17% of people that are suffering from this disease and have not been diagnosed. This disease is affecting 42% of the adult population in the US and is expected to rise sharply as the baby boomers head into retirement.
Could there really be a common cause to these two diseases that modern medicine has overlooked?
The Arthritis Foundation describes rheumatoid arthritis as a "chronic, systemic, inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology." They haven't a clue as to what causes this crippling disease.
Fungi can cause arthritis by either infecting a joint directly or by injecting mycotoxins that effect the joints. They do this by spreading from the primary infection usually found in the intestines or the lungs. There are a few different types of arthritic diseases that can be caused by systemic yeast infections.
Systemic Yeast Infections and Gout
Nearly every medical school in the country teaches its students gout is caused by uric acid. They teach that when uric acid reaches critical levels that it forms crystals in the joints causing gout. These schools teach that uric acid is created by the body itself and not from outside sources.
Dr. Costantini, retired head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Center for Mycotoxins in Food 1994, concluded from the work of he and fellow researchers, that it can't be proven that the body creates uric acid. They found that uric acid is more than likely of fungal origin, and entered the body from the outside.
Further studies revealed that urate crystals found in patients with gout occurred days after the the inflammation became present. So he stated that uric acid was not the cause of pain experienced by gout patients. He offerred a $1000 reward to any one that could prove him wrong. To this day no one has collected.
Candida yeast produces around 79 toxins or so and it has been said that one of these toxins is uric acid. So I ran a little experiment with my brother who suffers from gout. I sent him a 180 capsule bottle of Syntol to try out. I had him take 2 capsules twice a day away from food. He reported that his gout symptoms completely cleared up in a few days. Amazingly, he still argues with me about what is causing his gout.
Systemic Yeast Infection and Rheumatoid Arthritis
In January 1995 19 doctors wrote an article that was published in The Townsend Letter for Doctors. They stated that candidiasis or systemic yeast infections could mimic symptoms associated with rheumatoid arthritis. They also explained that systemic yeast infections may play a leading role in symptoms and diseases such as allergies, intestinal and bladder problems, fatigue, weight gain, headaches, poor concentration, and irritability.
Dr. Constantini also found that mycotoxins caused rheumatoid arthritis.
Food allergies have definitely been linked to arthritis by Dr. D Adamo and others. When the body is allergic to foods it creates IgE or IgG antibodies to that food as an immune response to a toxic invader. The person that this happens to is not aware of this happening and goes thru life without a clue.
However, over a span of 20 years or so the immune system becomes worn and tired and is unable to remove all these allergens from these foods. These allergens begin to enter the body depositing themselves in the joints. There they begin to clump the cells and damage them. The immune system will respond, but because it is so worn from the years of fighting these allergens, it cannot remove them all. The joints become damaged and arthritis is the result.
The only way to determine which foods you are allergic to and are causing this antibody reaction is to be tested. Once you have determined which foods are causing the antibody response you simply stop eating them. The body will then begin to heal and the inflammation will disappear.
As you can see systemic yeast infections can be absolutely insidious and cause symptoms that no doctor would even think to look for due to lack of knowledge in this field.
Treating Arthritis and Gout
Many scientist and doctors believe that a combination of proper diet, exercise, weight control, and supplementation could significantly reduce the incidence of this disease. Now I can point you in the right direction as far as supplements for arthritis, but I cannot control your diet or if you exercise or not.
The very best thing you can do for these conditions is visit the Natural Treatment page on this website and take the yeast infection questionaire and the spit test. I would also get Food Allergy tested asap. After you have those results, and if you have determined you have parasites or a yeast infection, do the parasite and colon cleanse first.
If you wiggle your nose, pinch or bend your ear, extend your leg or arm, exercise or wrinkle your skin, all of this is made possible by a connective tissue which the vast majority is called collagen. Collagen is a protein substance that is like glue that holds the body together. Collagen is found and interacts with many substances within the body to perform a variety of different functions. It can be used to make tendons and ligaments, to connect skin cells, it forms the cornea in the eye, it helps build bone, and the most important, it provides elasticity in the joints, and is a shock absorber for the joints as well.
Collagen was also found in 1958 by John F Pruden, to dramatically excellerate wound healing following surgery, was also anti-inflammatory and reduced pain, helping conditions like psoriasis and skin ulcers. He also found out that it prevented the growth of tumors caused by the proliferation of blood vessels within these tumors. In 1974 he successfully treated 50 patients with collagen type 11 for osteoarthritis. He had succes treating dry sockets in the jaw, acne, poison oak, hemorrhoids, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, peptic ulcers, and cancer with collagen type 11.
Dr. Aurthor Johnson, Professer & Chairman of Microbiology and Immunology at the U. of Minnesota, discovered in the 1970's; that collagen increased the ability of white blood cells to destroy bacteria and virus's, and it decreased the inflammatory response in clinical trials.
The highest concentration of collagen has been found in chicken sternums of 3 to 4 week old chicks. You would think that every doctor in the country would be giving this to their patients wouldn't you?? But in light of the amount of money spent in 1997 for arthritic conditions alone, I see why they do not say a word about it, don't you?
Cartilage is made up of 60% water and when you begin to get stiff and suffer from arthritic conditions your cartilage is not absorbing this water. With the addition of Hyaluronic Acid and Chondroitin Sulfate A, which help get water and the Chicken Sternal Collagen Type II into the cartilage, great results and relief can be achieved with these debilitating conditions.
Chondroitin Sulfate A was found in 1936 to be one of the best treatments for migraine headaches. Oral use has also proven effective for arthritis and heart disease. Dr. Alex Duarte points out that Chondroitin Sulfate A could very well make joint replacements unnecessary. He also found that Chondroitin Sulfate A was absolutely vital to the arterial walls to keep them supple and elastic to prevent hardening of the arteries. It also reduced the risks of blood clots.
Add MSM, a dietary sulfur, a necessary mineral often lacking in modern diets. MSM has been called the "Beauty Mineral" because of its involvement in the formation of hair, skin, nails, connective tissue and bones, and supports the development/maintenance of collagen. MSM allows fluid to flow through the cells of the body supporting the natural detoxification processes and in some instances intensifying the benefit of other supplements.
When the body is lacking in msm, the healing and building effects of collagen in the skin is incomplete and will leave a raised scar when healing. Scars are an overgrowth of collagen when the body is deficient in msm and vitamin C. When msm and Vitamin C are present, wrinkles and scars are minimized, and the skin heals smooth and supple. The same thing happens in your joints if you are low on msm. As the collagen rebuilds cartilage and tissues, and you are not getting the water into the cells, it can create scar tissue in the joints, otherwise known as fibromyalgia.
MSM, or organic sulfer, is the fourth most prominate mineral in your body and is equal to potassium to give you an idea how important it is. Dietary sulfer is used in the body for removing toxins from the cells with water. Dr. Earl Mindell, The Vitamin Bible, says that dietary sulfer is present in all living tissues and is absolutely essential for the body to function properly. It makes the cell pearmeable so water can flow thru the cells removing toxins and providing nutrients.
In scientific tests, every muscle pain because of multiple sclerosis has responded favorably to msm. Dr. Herschler, Reagan State Science University; found supplementing with msm reduced pain, stiffness, and inflammation caused by arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, acute injuries, and disk problems.
The New York Academy of Science docummented MSM as providing substantial and long lasting relief for health problems such as arthritis, headaches, muscle pain, skin problems, allergies, roscea, constant icthing, emphysema, and acne. They said it also helped individuals to reduce back pain.
Studies also have proven it can balance sugar levels in diabetics, and can possibly eliminate the need for insulin injections in time. Isn't that great news for all you diabetics out here?
There is one side effect to taking msm other than what it will do for your skin and bones. Your hair and nails will grow much faster and be stronger.
The body also uses vitamin c, l-lysine, and l-proline to make collagen.
Expect to see a great improvement in your arthritis symptoms in 12 to 18 weeks. Not very long considering the amount of time it has taken you to get to where you are now, if you suffer from these debilitating conditions.
