At Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore you can learn medical hypnosis and learn how to live without arthritis pain. Studies are showing that hypnosis is a powerful and effective tool in dealing with the physical symptoms of arthritis including the alleviating of pain, fatigue and emotional distress. Hypnosis is also used to reduce swelling and inflammation and promote healing through the use of imagery. Self hypnosis can also help you to end your desires for foods that make you fat and sick and to create healthy desires for a whole foods plant based lifestyle so that you can be slender and healthy.
Arthritis and Joint Pain
Learn how to live without this debilitating disease!
Alan Goldhamer, D.C., November 1, 1997: People in non-western cultures who eat diets low in animal fat and protein have much lower incidences of all types of arthritis!
Rheumatoid arthritis is rare in societies where animal products are seldom eaten, such as in Africa, Japan, and China. And when rheumatoid arthritis does develop, it is usually much milder and is associated with much less disability than in the United States. There are several theories as to why diet influences these antibody/antigen complex diseases, and the culprits are again protein and fat.
Any foreign protein that comes into the body is called an antigen. Our immune system manufactures antibodies to fight these invading substances, and antibody/antigen complexes are formed.
The invaders can be viruses, bacteria, or food protein. (Most people do not think about food protein when they think of invading protein or other foreign proteins.) The antibodies fight antigens by attaching to them and clumping them together to form complexes (many antibodies and antigens clumped together). These complexes are usually eliminated from the body by the immune system. But in some people this does not happen. Instead, the complexes become lodged in various tissues around the body where they cause inflammation (much like a splinter causes when it lodges). When these complexes lodge in the joints, you get pain, swelling, and redness.
Diet can play an additional role in antigen/antibody problems if a person’s intestines allow large food proteins to enter the body. When we eat, our digestive system breaks the food down into smaller and smaller particles. In most people the particles have to be very, very small-down to their basic components-before they can get from the digestive tract into the body proper. But in some people, proteins are able to get through at an earlier stage, when they are still quite large and complex. This process is called “gut leakage.”
When these larger proteins get into the body, they are perceived as antigens. The body starts attacking them and trying to eliminate them. Eating a high-protein diet, especially one containing animal products, may make people who have a genetic tendency to allow larger particles into their bodies more susceptible to arthritis.
One study that supports the contention that diet plays a role in the evolution of arthritis was undertaken at Wayne State University Medical School. The results were dramatic. Investigators took six rheumatoid arthritis patients and fed them a totally fat-free diet for seven weeks. During that time all six patients experienced a complete remission from the pain. The symptoms recurred within 72 hours when either vegetable oil or animal fat was introduced to their diets. If they ate chicken, beef, cheese, coconut oil, or safflower oil, they experienced severe arthritic pain within 72 hours.
When I was obese I lived with the pain and suffering of rheumatoid arthritis. Thanks to hypnosis, healthy eating and exercise, I no longer suffer with the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. If you are ready to feel great, medical hypnosis for autoimmune disease can help you to make healthy lifestyle changes and help you to end the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. If you live too far from my Seattle hypnosis or Bainbridge hypnosis offices or are unable to travel, the Hypnosis Health Info Virtual Office is here for you.
