food allergy

  1. Talking sense on arthritis

    If you're one of the regular readers of Health Revelations, then you already know all about my plan to combat rheumatoid arthritis.

    It's a little too long to explain here, but I've found the heart of it to be a food allergy. As I laid out my simple, safe and natural step-by-step plan, I predicted that every doctor will be treating it my way within 10 years.

    Maybe we won't have to wait 10 years after all.

    After decades of refusing to accept any of the substantial evidence of food's role in this condition, the New York Times recently examined the latest research… and concluded that there may be something to it after all.

    I had to read it three or four times, then call my wife over to read it to me just to make sure I wasn't hallucinating.

    Once she assured me that there was nothing wrong with my vision, I sat down and read it again.

    They almost have it right, saying "there is some evidence that certain diets may help with arthritis symptoms."

    But of course, they're not quite there yet. For one, they never used the word "allergy" when they talked about food as a potential source of the problem. And they looked at overall diets – the Mediterranean diet, for example, and vegetarian diets, rather than how specific foods trigger symptoms in people, which can differ widely from one person to another.

    It's not easy to undo decades of poor education on arthritis. The drug companies sure as heck don't want you to know that there's a simple, drug-free solution. They make billions on these meds, and they'll do everything they can to make sure that gravy train stays on the tracks.

    But many of my patients are having the last laugh, throwing out their meds for good as they stop and even reverse their damage from rheumatoid arthritis. You can wait a few more years for the mainstream to finish the turnaround and start treating RA this way – or you can subscribe to Health Revelations, read the June issue in the online archives, and get healthy now.

    Then you'll have the last laugh, too.

  2. Drugs for the side effects of other drugs

    Big Pharma's endless vicious cycle added another loop recently when the Food & Drug Administration approved a med to treat the side effects of another med.

    The crazy thing is, most people didn't need that first drug to begin with. But don't expect to hear about that from the FDA.

    Glucocorticoid medications are steroids commonly used by folks who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.

    But like most of these meds, using them comes at a price, and a pretty high one at that. Glucocorticoid medications are one of the leading causes of secondary osteoporosis. In fact, an estimated 50 percent of the patients on glucocorticoids will eventually end up with an osteoporosis-related bone fracture.

    Enter Big Pharma, which is always ready to offer up a pricey solution to the problems it has created.

    Their latest move expands the use of another steroid to treat this form of osteoporosis.

    But you can avoid the need for any of these drugs and their side effects. What most people don't know – what most doctors don't even know – is that rheumatoid arthritis is most often caused by a food allergy.

    I wrote all about it in the June issue of Health Revelations, and if you subscribe now you'll get to read that article in our online archives, along with my simple three-step plan for reversing joint damage.

    You won't hear about this anywhere else because there's no drug to sell here and no big money on the line – only a real cure for your condition, no strings attached.

    The alternative is drugs, such as those glucocorticoid medications. If your doctor starts you on those, or if you're already on them, chances are now he'll encourage you to take this new drug to deal with the side effects.

    But this drug comes with plenty of risks of its own.

    Some of the folks who have used it developed bone cancer. Although there's not enough data out there to say for sure if the drug caused the cancer, it does have enough established side effects to make anyone think twice: decreased blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, nausea, leg pain, cramps, joint aches and more.

    And then, you can ride that endless crazy train of meds, side effects, meds to deal with the side effects and more meds to deal with the side effects of the meds you take for the side effects of the first med.

    I can't think of anything more unnecessary than that.

  3. Researchers going pointlessly high-tech to treat rheumatoid

    There is a highly successful treatment for rheumatoid arthritis, and it's a lot simpler than many people want you to believe.
