According to the Bible - "...the curse causeless shall not come" (Proverbs 26:2) In the light of this statement, we can understand that curses have causes; curses are caused by something. The curse that we are considering in this post is the curse of disease. If disease was a blessing and not a curse, Jesus Christ would not have spent so much time healing and curing people of various diseases while He was upon earth. Treating symptoms may be necessary at times but it is an ineffective plan for overcoming disease entirely. Pain may require immediate relief but unless the cause of the pain is removed, a recurring cycle of temporary relief and frequent distress is almost assured. Disease never comes without a cause. The way is prepared, and disease invited, by disregard of the laws of health.

Disease is an effort of nature to free the system from conditions that result from a violation of the laws of health.

Since disease results from violating the laws of health, it is very important that everyone know and understand the laws of health and strive by the grace of God to live in harmony with them.

These 8 laws may be found detailed at

Any person who examines these laws will quickly recognize the lifestyle habits which he or she has adopted that are contributing to disease. This is the first step towards identifying the cause of disease and making an effective treatment possible.

Here are the 3 steps to be taken for the restoration of health.

1. In case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained.

2. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, wrong habits corrected.

3. Then nature is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities and to re-establish right conditions in the system.

Arthritis and Bursitis and Other Itises -


Arthritis is inflammation of the joints and the pain may extend to muscles and connective tissue. It is caused by poor dietary habits, constipation and acids (uric) and waste matter in the body which eventually become hard and lock the joint. Uric acid is a waste product normally present in the blood as a result of the breakdown of purines. Excessive amounts of uric acid can cause crystals to form in the joints and cause gout. Uric acid is found in meat and contributes to its taste. Toxemia from a mucus-laden, impacted colon and malnutrition (with vitamin-mineral deficiency) are always associated with arthritis, rheumatism, bursitis, neuritis, neuralgia, and sciatica. (There is all the acid purines and uric acid in meat. Eventually this hodgepodge of acids collects in the joints, to such a degree that the bone is eaten away, the bursa becomes inflamed, etc)


Avoid all hydrogenated oils, margarine, shortening, greases, and fried foods. Omit all animal products meat, milk, cheese, eggs, butter, yogurt, ice cream.

Especially should objectionable meats such as pork, ham, bacon, sausage, hot dogs, hamburger, canned meat spreads, pressed meats, and canned composite meats such as Spam, be permanently eliminated. Do not use white bread, buns, melba toast, crackers and saltines, cakes, cookies, white macaroni, spaghetti, white rice, bolted corn meal, cream of wheat, and other refined grain products.

Never use soft drinks, coffees, teas, medicines, chocolate. May use non-caffeinated herb teas and cereal beverages. Crackers, cakes and cookies are unhealthful when made with baking soda or powder, eggs, milk, shortening, artificial flavorings and colorings and sugar. Overcome constipation. If you eat 2 meals per day - you should have at least 2 bowel movements per day. Anything less is constipation. Increase fiber and water intake.

Do not eat meat. The purines and uric acid in it inflame arthritic conditions.



One large glass of pure grapefruit juice daily.

One glass of cranberry juice.

Drink two quarts bottled spring water daily.

(Pain) Yucca and Devil’s Claw herbs in tea or capsule form will also bring relief from pain quickly. Both are anti-inflammatory.

Acidophilus 5 capsules 3 times daily, or eat 1 cup (soy) yogurt daily

Vitamin E (not fish oil or cod liver derived) 800 IU daily.

Vitamin C (ascorbate form not ascorbic acid) 10,000 mg. daily for one week, then drop the amount to 5,000 mg. daily for 3 weeks.

Acidophilus 5 capsules 3 times daily, or eat 1 cup yogurt daily. (Good bacteria for the bowel)

Use honey for a sweetener, and sea salt or kelp. Use Seitenbacher's vegetable broth for flavoring.

Eat majority alkaline foods (75%) - mostly fruits and vegetables - (email for list)

The alkaline action of raw juices and vegetable broth dissolves the accumulation of deposits around joints and in other tissues. Green drink mixed with carrot juice, celery, red beet juice and vegetable broth daily are specifically good for arthritis and rheumatic diseases.

Herbs - Specific herbs to neutralize the uric acid, cleanse the blood and reduce inflammation

Burdock root, Red Clover, Dandelion - (blood cleansers)

Hydrangea, Yucca, Devil's Claw, Alfalfa - (arthritis specific)

Additional Supplements - Calcium and Magnesium in balance. B complex especially B6 and B12

Bromelain or Papaya enzymes for the protease to aid in assist with proper digestion

Eat green leafy vegetables, whole grains, oatmeal, and brown rice. These supply vitamin K,

• Eat fresh pineapple frequently. The bromelain in it is good for reducing inflammation. It must be fresh, since freezing or canning destroys the enzyme.

• The most beneficial vegetables include celery, parsley, potatoes, alfalfa, wheat grass, garlic, comfrey, and endive.

• The most beneficial fruits include bananas, pineapples, sour apples, and sour cherries.

• Foods containing the amino acid, histidine, include wheat, rye, and rice. Histidine helps remove metals, and many arthritics have high levels of copper and iron in their bodies.

• Eat some form of fiber, such as oat bran, rice bran, flaxseed, etc.

Pray and ask God to change your heart and then for strength and grace to change your lifestyle

CHALLENGE - Try all the above for 10 days and see if there is not a significant improvement

The use of herbs should complement obedience to the 8 laws of health. More information about this at under health issues.
