I am switching to the 'Eat to live' plan, which seems to be sound and effective when it comes to working with your body, obtaining pain relief, stop inflammation, etc. I am currently reading the book by Dr. Joel Fuhrmann and it makes sooooo much sense as to why this helps.

Brown Rice Cream

Used in cases when a person in a weakened condition needs to be nourished and energized or when the digestive system is impaired. Dry-roast brown rice evenly until all the grains turn a yellowish color. To one part rice, add a small amount of sea salt and 3–6 parts water, then pressure cook for at least 2 hours. Squeeze out the creamy part of the cooked rice gruel through a sanitized cheesecloth. Eat with a small volume of condiment, such as umeboshi plum, gomasio (sesame salt), tekka, kelp, or other seaweed powder.

I just heard something from my boyfriend that he heard from an older gentleman with chronic pain.

You buy a box of Golden Raisins and 1 pint of Gin. Put the raisins in a tupperware or other container with a top. Let them soak for exactly 2 weeks. Then eat exactly 9 per day. After about a week you should feel pain relief.

I just started soaking mine on Tuesday, so I can't start eating them until the 14th...I will definately post and let you know how it goes

Pass the broccoli, please March 11, 2009 10:15 AM

Pass the broccoli, please

You know that calcium is key for strong bones, but Japanese researchers have identified something else you need: vitamin K. It’s believed that the vitamin, found in broccoli, spinach, and other dark leafy greens, helps calcium deposit in the bones, making them denser. The stronger your bones, the stronger your whole body—and the lower your chances of an injury that could cause back pain.

Ginger...for pain

  • Ginger has been used for years to relieve arthritis pain:
    Again, 2 to 4 grams daily. Ginger oil (available in health food stores)
    and fresh ginger may also be rubbed into a painful joint. A warm
    poultice can be made with fresh or powdered ginger. Mix enough ginger
    (several tablespoons) with very hot water to make a paste, spread on a
    gauze and allow it to soak in. Apply, ginger side to skin, to painful
    areas for a few minutes.

    Dollar Tree & Other dollar stores.... July 20, 2008 9:56 AM

    Because suppliments and vitamins are not regulated and so on when you buy low cost suppliments you are getting low quality.  SO many companies have buy one get one on their suppliments.  They make it worth it to go with better quality.

    Alfalfa sprouts are actually a big "no" for Lupies...  They're pretty notorious for causing flares.

    Foods to Favor
    Chlorophyll reduces inflammation and so enjoy a generous serving of leafy green vegetables with each meal. You may wish to supplement with the superior chlorophyll sources spirulina, dunaliella, chlorella and blue green algae. Sprouts and wheat-grass and barley grass juice are also excellent chlorophyll sources.

    (However immature alfalfa sprouts (those that have not yet set forth their first two leaves) are to be avoided as they contain an amino acid, canavanine, which exacerbates arthritic conditions.)

    Both cherries and pineapple reduce inflammation. Pineapple contains the anti-inflammatory enzyme, bromelain. This impressive protein-digesting enzyme literally consumes foreign microbes and diseased cells in your system.

    The spice, turmeric, increases ligament flexibility and so is especially useful in the case of stiffness. Additional foods and culinary herbs that reduce inflammation and support healing of muscles, ligaments and tendons include the onion family, flax, burdock, ginger, yam, winter squash, sweet rice, millet and chamomile.

    In terms of your overall diet, favor easy to digest, whole foods that are freshly prepared. They have the necessary nutrients to cleanse, build and maintain your whole body. Then your body functions optimally plus has extra energy to repair the inflamed and damaged muscles and ligaments.
