Arthritis Epidemic In America

February 2, 2009 by  

Arthritis Epidemic In America

There is more dairy farming in America than in any other country. Yet we have more arthritis, or calcium deficiency disease.

The first reason for this arthritis plague is because of public health laws that coerce us to drink adulterated milk. By force of law all commercial milk must be a dead food before the customer consumes it.

Pasteurization is required and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) test of pasteurization is that the alkaline phosphatase enzymes must be dead (by heating) for the milk to be approved for sale to the public.

The alkaline phosphatase enzyme is the live ingredient in raw milk that causes the formation of bone. The American people are denied this bone-forming food although they drink millions of gallons of (so-called) milk.

The second reason for the arthritis plague in America is that even though calcium supplements are tops in health food sales, it is almost worthless as a food supplement for the formation of bone.

Be reminded that bone is one-third calcium, one-third protein and one-third water. Ninety-nine percent of our calcium is in our bones. Only 1 percent is in our blood and tissue. But this 1 percent is so critical that if the 1 percent gets low, calcium will be drawn from the body skeleton. The blood and tissue calcium is so vital to life that the body forces our bones to give up calcium in order to balance blood and tissue because survival depends on it.

There may be a constant calcium release from your bones leaving them weaker and subject to arthritis. Usually calcium is first withdrawn from the spine and pelvic bones.

So calcium supplements that we consume simply go through the intestines and are excreted. Only if we take vital D3 (cholocalciferol) is our calcium intake absorbed from the stomach into the blood.

So in reality, our calcium deficiency is a D3 deficiency. This means that the critical 1 percent of blood and tissue calcium is absolutely dependent on vitamin D3.

Low blood and tissue calcium leads to high body temperature. This is the same as saying that high body temperature denotes low blood and tissue calcium. This is the direct route to disease and sickness.

D3 as cholocalciferol is the most potent hormone in the human body.

Now that the genie is finally out of the bottle the public is discovering the life-giving and life-sustaining attributes of vitamin D3. Because of this, I predict that vitamin D3 will be cut off except by prescription, making it a pharmaceutical drug. The justification will be that vitamin D3 is not a vitamin but a hormone, and must be controlled. Score another for the pharmaceutical trusts.

The pharmaceuticals will make a drug that will be toxic in minimum amounts. The effect will be to deny the American people adequate amounts of vitamin D3 to sustain blood and tissue diffusible calcium. The body will in turn draw calcium from the bones guaranteeing the continuation of the arthritis epidemic in America.

The main thing to understand is that no matter how much calcium we take, without vitamin D3 (cholocalciferol), it is worthless as a defense against arthritis.

Arthritis begins as osteomalacia, or lower limb pain, after prolonged vitamin D3 deficiency. This becomes full-blown crippling arthritis. Osteomalacia is a precursor, or forewarning, of arthritis to come. Doctors automatically suspect that the onset of lower limb pain is arthritis and start a toxic drug protocol. But it is likely to be only a deficit of D3 cholocalciferol.

    My question would be: how can we rectify this situation?

  • George

    I have Follicular Lymphoma. One of the supplements given to me by my doctor is Vitamin D3. Follicular Lymphoma pulls the Calcium out of my spine just as you indicated in your article. This loss of Calcium also led to kidney stones. I have to say there is no pain like the pain of kidney stones. I have had women tell me who have had kidney stones themselves that giving birth was not as painful as kidney stones. I am glad to say that I am now entering a maintenance program to monitor my health to hopefully prevent the cancer from returning. The method of defeating this cancer was Vitamin C infusion through an IV. I highly recommend if anyone has cancer to look into this method. I had Stage 4 Follicular Lymphoma and was given one year to live from last August 2008. I have been a personal trainer for thirty-two years and am back doing what I do best. Great Article!!

    I just love reading these articles, it proves how much big pharma controlls most people’s lives (not mine).

    vitamin D3 (cholocalciferol) was to be registerd as a pharmaceutical drug, we would just have to go to Mexico or somewhere else to buy it in large quantites for cheap (which it is now), remember you can get anything in Cuba for a fraction of what is costs in North America (watch the movie “Sicko”), it is all true.

    • Magda

      To Klee Rogers. There are no easy answers to the Health system. As a Cuban-American with many relatives in the island I can tell you that the movie “Sicko” was and is NOT ALL TRUE.
      The only challenge I could offer you is to move to the island and benefit from their wonderful Health care.
      At the end of the day, the system we have is the best in the world. It doesn’t mean it is the best. Just the best in the world. Thank God for articles like these, and concerned citizens to make it even better.
      Don’t be mislead and use the crappy Cuban or any other Nationalized Health system as an example. And pray you never have to find yourself in Cuba and in need of medical attention. Oh wait! Yes, you will get medical attention because you are a tourist! Yes, I forgot. My relatives – my Cuban relatives – are the ones who get the crappy service. My apologies. Yes, you can go ahead and move to Cuba and benefot form their wonderful services as explained in the Michael Moore documentary.

    What is the best source of this D3. Where can we get it?

  • Angelina

    Thank you for this very informative article.

    What is the source of D3 please? I have osteoporosis and seem to get little help from the healthcare in British Columbia.

    • Denis

      Hello Angelina

      An interesting place to start is ‘Saveourbones ‘ web site run by Vivian Goldschmidt, MA. Lots of good information on Osteoporosis, plus an interesting book called The Bone Health Revolution

      • Angelina

        Thank you Denis, appreciate your helpful suggestion and will now check out the website.

    Interesting article. I have suffered with osteoarthritis for 30 years. Our family has Stickler’s Syndrome which was identified at the Mayo Clinic in 1969 as a lack of collagen – leads to crummy cartilage and deteriorating joints. I have 2 total hips and 2 total knee replacements and I am only 59. I have been taking 50,000 units every other day of Vitamin D3 for several years. I call it lighting in a bottle. My inflammation is down and energy is way up. But the biggest miracle I have been taking in small doses for a year, and now at least 3000 units per day is MSM. It is cheap at 6 cents per a 1000 unit pill. My bone spurs are dissolving!! My hands and ankles almost look normal after only a month of the higher dose. My son is an MD and an integrative medicine doctor who found out about this nutritional supplement by chatting with a nutritionist from Canada. She recommended 10,000 units per day. This MSM is the building block of bone. Humans used to get it naturally by boiling down an animal carcass into a soup stock, which we only do at turkey time now. We only get this ingredient from other bones like shark cartilage. It gives your body what it needs to make strong bones, and if we don’t get it the body rips this nutrient out of your bones, leaving bone spurs behind. By taking this supplement, your body is satisfied and leaves your bones alone. I had no idea that the bone spurs were also reversable! I am soooo thrilled with this phenomenon. I was not looking forward to hand and ankle surgery. I highly recommend taking Vitamin D3, iodine, and MSM for great health.
    Vitamin C infusions for cancer prevention and other benefits are terrific too.

    This is just a thank you for your e-mails which I receive and
    look forward to each day. I am eighty years old this year
    and in fairly good health because I was fed the old fashioned way as a child. Soup made from marrow bones and lots of vegetables, milk straight from the cows, and all home made bread and everything from scratch with no added preservatives. This is still how I eat with the exception of milk which I can’t tolerate. However, I like to educate myself from your information on different illnesses.
    Kind regards,

      YES,I WAS RAISED SAME WAY,85,AND HEALTHY, all food was natural, no freezer pks, etc, S/r

    My cousin had psoriasis for several years as do many of her relatives on her father’s side. Suddenly about 2 years ago, she got what the doctor called Psoriatic Arthritis. I am not sure. It came so suddenly. One day she was a normal sixty year old woman, a week later she was almost an invalid. I believe something extremely inflammatory is going on. Can arthritis come on that fast? She has been tested for Lime Disease and was negative. Her pain is so severe and she has aged terribly. Does anyone have any opinions or similar experiences? She is now totally disabled and can rarely leave her home. Am I right to be suspicious of her diagnosis?

    I suffer terribly with arthritis in my hands but as soon as I stopped eating red meat it made a huge difference. I still eat fish and I can’t resist bacon (who can!) but I’m sure it is because I’m no longer eating the fats in the meat that has helped me.
