Did you know that arthritis and autoimmune
diseases can be cured without drugs?
How arthritis and autoimmune diseases start. According to Dr. Colin Campbell, top USDA nutrition scientist (now retired) in his collection of decades of nutritional research called "The China Study," undigested or partially-digested animal-based proteins (especially dairy) can leak out from an individual's slightly permeable intestinal wall (which many people do have) and into the blood stream, fueling the formation and growth of malignancies; and causing arthritis and autoimmune flareups. Another term or phrase for this "leakage" of protein is "foreign protein in the bloodstream." Plant-based proteins do not have this adverse effect (malignancies, arthritis, and autoimmune responses) and are never seen as foreign protein in the bloodstream. In addition to malignancies and arthritis, foreign protein in the blood is also responsible for many cases of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, diabetes, arteritis, pernicious anemia, MS, myasthenia gravis, Graves', Hashimoto disease, Croans Disease, kidney-related autoimmune disorders, and others.

This "foreign protein" condition can also be caused from the consumption of gluten, a grain protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Some people are violently allergic to gluten. Many people have a gluten sensitivity, but are not aware of it, because the gluten sensitivity is manifested by one or more of the above listed autoimmune diseases, with no obvious connection to gluten as the culprit.

A highly efficient immune system is capable of destroying most free-radical cells before malignancies and autoimmune conditions begin. Additionally, a highly efficient digestive system prevents partially-digested animal-based proteins (especially dairy) and gluten from leaking into the bloodstream. However, most people, especially the aging, do not have such an efficient immune system or digestive system, and thus suffer the consequences of foreign protein in the blood resulting from the consumption of gluten and animal-based proteins, especially dairy (milk, yogurt, cheese, etc.). The typical Western diet which is lacking in sufficient amounts of antioxidants and live enzymes often causes very poor immune-system efficiency and dysfunctional digestion of nutrients, ranking the U.S. as the worldwide number one in cancer rates and autoimmune diseases.

On the contrary, an enzyme-rich, plant-based diet consisting of 5 or more daily servings of raw fruits and vegetables (not cooked, canned, frozen, or dried) can strengthen the immune system and digestive functionality in a way that can have a profoundly positive and dramatic effect upon an individual's general health. Eating an enzyme-rich diet of of raw vegetables, fruit, nuts, and seeds has cured cancer, autoimmune diseases, infections, fungus, and other conditions that have been labelled as incurable by modern medicine, according to the Hippocrates Institute of Health. For added nutrients, one should incorporate legumes (beans) into their daily diet. Click on this link for an article that describes how legumes can save people's lives.

Further, Dr. Campbell's research reveals that milk protein (casein, found in milk, yogurt, cheese, sour cream, ice cream, and other dairy products) is twice as likely to enhance the metasticizing of malignancies and accelerate the progression of arthritis and other autoimmune conditions as meat proteins. In 1982, Dr. Ruth Heidrich was diagnosed with breast cancer that had metasticized to the lungs and bone. After immediately switching to a 100% plant-based diet and refusing all other types of treatment, her cancer suddenly stopped progressing, and she is alive and very well today, 37 years later. Her story can be found at this link.

How can these malignancies and autoimmune conditions caused from damaged cells (free radicals) and "foreign proteins" be prevented, stopped, or removed? By consuming adequate quantities of antioxidants & enzymes, and preventing foreign protein (explained above) from entering the bloodstream by avoiding animal-based foods. According to the definition, antioxidants, commonly found in vegetables and fruits, terminate chain reactions of cell damage by removing radical intermediates, and inhibit other oxidation reactions by being oxidized themselves. As a result, antioxidants are often reducing agents such as thiols or polyphenols.

Antioxidants chemically attract the free-radical cells, bonding to and stabilizing them, rendering them harmless. A combination of resveratrol and quercetin is one of the most potent antioxidants available. Both resveratrol and quercetin are ingredients in red wine responsible for promoting good health and longevity. Other sources of antioxidants are vitamins E and C; however, care should be taken to not overdose on these vitamins--follow the package instructions.

Three new studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association are proving the benefit of a plant-based diet in dramatically reducing, or eliminating, the risk of cancer. The studies show that high consumption of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables wards off a variety of cancers. Migrating to a plant-based diet means that you will probably not be among the one in four Westerners who die from cancer. Nor is it likely that you will be among the millions who are diagnosed every single year with cancer, contributing to a *$100 billion annual cancer industry (that's $100 billion every single year).

The human body depends upon enzymes in order to absorb and metabolize an antioxidant. Enzymes are abundant in raw, fresh vegetables and fruits (not cooked, canned, frozen, or dried). Heat kills enzymes, which begin to die at 106 degrees fahrenheit. Most food-drying processes involve heat beyond that threshold.

People who consume adequate quantities of natural enzymes daily via fresh, raw fruits and vegetables have far better immune systems than those who do not. In addition, they greatly reduce their risk of cancer (the #2 killer of Westerners), heart disease (the #1 killer of Westerners), vascular and kidney diseases, diabetes, and a myriad of other afflictions.

If these same individuals take an additional measure and eliminate animal-based foods from their diet, they practically eliminate their risk of cancer and heart disease, according to Dr. John McDougall, M.D., Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, and many other highly respected doctors, hospitals, labs, clinics, journals, etc.

*According to Roon Frost in the March 2008 issue of Taste for Life magazine, the cancer industry now commands a whopping $100 billion+ each year.
