A Natural Cure for Arthritis
The daily seafood diet cures and prevents Rheumatoid Arthritis. That's it, and here it is - the End of Arthritis. No one needs to suffer from arthritis, and all the other associated diseases any more. In three months of the daily seafood diet, you'll be rid of your arthritis (osteo arthritis takes a little longer). Finally, this beautiful natural cure for rheumatoid arthritis - all the side effects are fabulous (you will see) - is slowly beginning to be recognized by the biomedical sciences.
As usual though, the academic focus is still upon one or two therapeutic agents - upon the omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E in this instance - and the investigators still remain completely unaware that the effective agents are the complete natural range of the 72+ trace elements in the fish oil, as in all marine fish and seafood.
That the 72 + trace elements are the active agent is proven by the fact that a pure 72+ trace element nutritional supplement achieves practically the same results as the daily seafood diet, although the addtitional omega 4 fatty acids, as well as many other complex compounds in seafood provide by far the best results.
Nevertheless, and at least, they are now on the right track of what this writer has discovered in 1986 - that a daily serving of seafood cures both rheumatoid and osteo arthritis, as told in
MARY-JO'S STORY in these pages - and here we now have more scientific proof.
Extremely interesting is the author's mention of lupus and other auto-immune diseases in conjunction with her discovery. Obviously, she is already convinced of the value of testing fish oil on these diseases and, as customary among scientists, is "staking a claim" in this direction.
So, and since one or two daily servings of seafood work far better than a small dose of fish oil, the fact remains that the fish oil has brought dramatic improvements, and you can now go ahead and cure rheumatoid arthritis, as well as lupus and other auto immune diseases, with one or two daily servings - and the more the better - of seafood.
The original synopsis:
Fish Oil and Vitamin E for Rheumatoid Arthritis
A study led by Jaya Venkatraman, Ph.D., UB associate professor in the Department of Physical Therapy, Exercise and Nutrition Sciences, has shown that in a mouse model, a combination of fish oil and vitamin E reduced the levels of inflammation-inducing cytokines, proteins that cause the joint swelling, pain and tenderness characteristic of this disease. That study was published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Venkatraman said results using the mouse model show that fish oil and vitamin E are promising potential therapies for those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.
"This mouse model for arthritis displays symptoms very similar to what happens in humans," she said. "The combination of fish oil, with its omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E appears to help restore the balance between pro - and anti - inflammatory cytokines. It probably can't prevent development of rheumatoid arthritis, but it may delay symptoms and allow a reduction in other medication. People who normally had to take 10 aspirins a day, for example, may be able to take five. This therapy also seems to improve function."
In this study, Venkatraman used mice that over-express the lpr gene that causes fast aging, immuonological abnormalities and induces development of auto immune diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. These diseases are characterized by cartilage destruction, known to be caused in part by an abnormal production of pro-inflammatory proteins that act as though the cartilage has been invaded by foreign proteins and fight to destroy them.
Clinical trials in humans and laboratory research with animals have shown that dietary supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil provides significant benefits, but the mechanism behind this action isn't well known, Venkatraman said. By feeding some of these genetically altered mice a diet that included fish oil plus vitamin E and giving others a regular diet, Venkatraman was able to compare concentrations of pro and anti-inflammatory cytokines in the blood serum of both groups.Her analysis showed that the genetically altered mice had higher levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines in their serum, and that mice fed fish oil and vitamin E had significantly lower levels of these inflammation- inducing proteins.
"It is clear from our observations that fish oil and vitamin E are beneficial in modulating levels of specific cytokines and thereby may affect the immune system and the onset of autoimmunity," she said."These observations may form the basis for future studies on selective nutritional interventions based on specific fatty acids and antioxidants in delaying the progress of autoimmune diseases, particularly in rheumatoid arthritis patients."
