Treat and Cure Rheumatoid Arthritis With 3 Healthy Lifestyle Remedies



My name is Larry Cook, and I’m here to share with you that Rheumatoid Arthritis is treatable,and it can be reversed. If not all the way, at least significantly, when someone followsthe healthy lifestyle. I have three specific remedies that I’m going to give you that,if you follow them and you have Rheumatoid Arthritis, you have a really good chance ofeither completely reversing Rheumatoid Arthritis, or at least significantly improving your health. So, let’s get started. Number one, you want to go see a naturopathic doctor. That is,by far, the absolute most important thing that you can do for yourself, is to go visita naturopathic doctor. A naturopathic doctor specializes in uncovering the root cause ofhealth problems. So, whereas a medical doctor is going to say “Yeah, you have RheumatoidArthritis, let me give you some drugs and treat the symptoms”, a naturopathic doctoris going to look at your symptoms, go “Yeah, you have RA, but let’s try to figure out what’sgoing on that’s causing all of these different symptoms. ” Generally speaking, there’s a lotgoing on. It is not an easy thing to treat. I know this from talking with naturopathicdoctors. So, let’s get into what a naturopathic doctor is. A naturopathic doctor attendinga four year post-graduate medical school where they learned basically the same stuff thata medical doctor learns, and they learn natural remedies, and how to treat the root causeof health issues. So, when you go see a naturopathic doctor, you’re visiting someone who has anextensive amount of training in the health sciences. A licensed naturopathic doctor issomeone who can order and interpret labs. They can treat and diagnose disease. Theybasically are on par with a medical doctor, the only difference is they’re using naturalremedies. So, to find a naturopathic doctor in your area, what you want to do is Googlenaturopathic doctor and your city, and look and see what comes up. That’s one option. In Washington State they’re called naturopathic physicians, so you might want to try thatphrase as well in your Google search. Your other option is you can go to a website calledrealizehealth. org, and there’s a whole list of naturopathic doctors on there as well. You can do a search on that website as well. Number two has to do with taking some supplements. The gut in people who have RA is usually very compromised. There’s all kinds of problemsgoing on with the gut. When you take a supplement called Probiotics, which is friendly bacteria,you’re actually helping the gut heal. Now, there’s a lot more that needs to happen besidesthat, and your naturopathic doctor is going to tell you about that, but you can get goingright now. So, probiotics, because it’s friendly bacteria that helps heal your gut. Digestiveenzymes, because there’s usually digestive issues going on simultaneously. Digestiveenzymes help digest food, and one other supplement to take is fish oil. Fish oil helps reduceinflammation, and RA has a lot of inflammation going on. So, digestive enzymes, probiotics,and fish oil. That’s number two. Number three has to do with your food. This part is critical. It’s absolutely critical. You have to change your diet, and when I say change your diet,I mean probably a radical change. What that means is this, you want to eat whole, organicfood all the time. You want to get rid of processed foods. A lot of people don’t knowwhat processed means, so I’m going to help you understand it. Bread is processed. Pastais processed. Muffins are processed. Bagels are processed. Anything that comes out ofa box or a can is processed food, or a bag, such as bread. You want to get rid of allof that. You want to get rid of all the diet soda, all the Coke, all the sugar. Anythingwith sugar in it has to go. If you want to get better, you have to change your diet. There is no way around it. You just have to. If you put poor nutrition in, or no nutritioninto your body on a regular basis, and you put poison into your body on a regular basis,you’re not going to get better. You have to put in really good food. Good food is whole,organic food. Stuff you find in the produce section on a very regular, if not very dailybasis. So, that’s number three. Let’s recap. One, visit a naturopathic doctor and followthe protocol that the naturopathic doctor gives you. It’s not like Western medicine. You don’t go and you take a drug, and you go home. You actually have to do some workwhen you visit a naturopathic doctor, but if you want to get better, follow the protocol. You will get better. That’s number one, find a naturopathic doctor and follow their protocol. Number two, take probiotics, digestive enzymes, and fish oil. Number three, change your dietto a whole foods diet, organic diet. Get rid of all the processed food. Get rid of everythingthat has any kind of chemical whatsoever in it, and you will start to get better. I guaranteeit. OK, I have a couple videos to share with you. The first one is with Dr. Angela Agrios. She’s a naturopathic doctor here in Los Angeles. I interviewed her quite a few years ago aboutRheumatoid Arthritis, and she gave a great interview. I highly recommend watching it,especially if you have Rheumatoid Arthritis. What you might want to know is she has sinceseen quite a few patients from that video, and they’ve gotten better. It’s not easy totreat RA. This I know, so you really do have to follow the protocol. You really do haveto change your diet. You really do have to take the supplements. You really have to doeverything that’s recommended. Watch her video, learn a little bit more. Then find a naturopathicdoctor in your area. The second video is of me talking about Western medicine versus naturalmedicine. When the body has the right conditions, it can heal. If you want to learn a littlebit more about how the body can heal when given the right conditions, that’s a greatvideo to watch. If you like this video, please give me a thumbs up.
