MY HUSBAND IS TORMENTED BY RHEUMATISMS AND PSORIASIS
Dear Mr Valdo Vaccaro, I am Betty R. from Holland. My husband Huub and I both have an immunity disorder. Our common friend Mauro advised me to contact you in order to get some good views concerning the rheumatism (psoriatic arthritis) of my husband. The first medicine rheumatologist treated him with methotrexate. After a while he got very ill of this medicine. His doctor then advised him to stop the medication.
USELESS DRUGS AND COLLATERAL EFFECTS
In this period he started changing his lifestyle, by doing physical exercise and modifying his eating habits, with a drop of 15 kg. Unfortunately this was not enough to control his disease. So he had to restart with his medication. This time, to avoid side effects, he had to take methotrexate injections, in order to avoid all nausea side-effects. After the 5th injection he became very ill again. His rheumatism consultant advised him to stop again and wait for the next appointment o (at the moment he is using sulfasalazine).
IN MY CASE I HAVE RETTOCOLITIS AND DIARRHOEA
In my personal case, I have ulcerative colitis. Every day I use an anti-inflammatory medicine, and every year I have a colonoscopy. The reason for these regular checks is that my brother has got colon cancer. Though the results of these examinations are constantly positive, I always have diarrhoea. My intestinal doctor examines my stomach and small intestine and even used a camera-pill to find the cause of this problem. But nothing was found.
MAURO GOT STRONG BENEFITS FROM YOU. CAN YOU GIVE US A HELP AS WELL?
Our hope is that you can find the time to give us an advice on how to deal with these diseases in a advices! I very much hope you can help us. We always have a very low energy level and are tired most of the time. Sincerely Yours. Betty and Huub
YOU CANNOT GO ON WITH URIC ACIDIFICATION, METAL ACCUMULATION AND DENSE BLOOD
Dear Betty and Huub, no wonder that both of you are feeling tired and weak all the time. For some reasons you are living without the support of your internal engines. Actually, rather than living, you are just surviving, rather than swimming you are almost grasping and drowning. No matter the specific differences in names and symptoms of your pathologies, both of you are heavily intoxicated by uric acidification and probably by heavy metal accumulation, while your blood is pretty dense and lipo-toxic. In a way, this is an advantage, in the sense that the method of recovery is pretty the same for both of you.
INFLAMMATORY PROCESS ON THE JOINTS
Rheumatisms and arthritis are inflammatory processes related mainly to the joints, and the only way to solve them is a rigorous stop to all various causes of the body-acidification. In the peculiar case of PsA, or inflammatory arthritis associated with psoriasis, there are no difference in causes and treatments, if we compare to normal anti-rheumatic strategies. You have for sure a DIP (distal interphalangeal joint involvement), an inflammation of the whole digit, an enthisitis (inflammation at the site of the tendon insertion into the bone), and probably a presence of spinal involvement.
THE CAUSES OF RHEUMATISMS
Which are the causes? Poor diet, protein excesses, too many concentrated and cooked foods, meat and cheese, eggs and butter, fish and crustacea, coffee and cola, smoke and alcoholic drinks, sweetened and aspartame drinks, pasteurized juices, salt and sugar, medicines and vaccines (mercurial pollution), integrators and supplements, stress and anxiety, humidity and climate up and downs, poor respiration based on breast style breathing (instead of diaphragmatic breathing), scarcity of sun exposure. The pains are caused mainly by small crystals of uric acid stored in the joints.
URGENT NEED FOR A VITAL-LIFE DIET
What is urgently needed is a vital-life diet, possibly anticipated by a physiological rest (fasting) of at least 3 full days (no food but only distilled water or light water, at will). If the fast is made at home and without assistance, remember that you can expect elimination symptoms like headache, fever, mucus discharge, etc. All these phenomena are to be accepted and appreciated, being the proof that your immune system is active in discharging the poisons. The return to normality will be done throughout a couple of days of total raw diet, better if juiced carrots, beets and celery, alternated with seasonal fruits, raw salad and eventually freshly pressed almond milk.
RAW DIET AT ALL LEVELS
Regarding the new choices of life and your new diet, there is no doubt about them. With lots of raw vegetables, sprouts, roots, seeds, juicy fruits, multi-cereal breads, and minimized compromises on pizzas and pastas and cooked foods, all psoriasis are resolved within 3 months time. A regime based on fruits and raw vegetables is ideal for contrasting arthritic problems as well. I recommend in particular cherries, all kind of berries, peaches, apricots, alfa-alfa sprouts, garlic sprouts, all sprouts, dandelion and nettles.
THE INFLAMMATION OF INTESTINAL MUCOSA
Coming to colitis, the inflammation is concentrated on the intestinal walls called also mucosa. The term ulcerative means that the inflammatory state was never solved before and became chronic, with obvious ulceration of the affected tissues. Diarrhoea is a rapid evacuation of faeces due to insufficient chewing, to poor choice in foods, to irritation of the gastrointestinal mucosa, to dysbiosis and pathological putro-fermentations, to bad digestions.
DIARRHOEA ITSELF IS NOT THE REAL PROBLEM
In a way, diarrhoea represents an organic defence mechanism consequent to enterocolitis and rectocolitis problems, because it allows the body to get rid of toxic material and of excessive material accumulated in the colon tract. Diarrhoea itself is not the real problem. Dysbiosis, prevalence of putrefactive bacteria in your colon, that’s the name of the game. What needed is an astringent diet based on gradual transition to raw-food, a relaxing life, a strategy for cooling down the heat inside the low intestinal area, through frequent cold baths, through external application of mud cold cataplasm on your belly during night time (mud can be produced with normal soil collected in a field and mixed with water). An initial fast of 3 days is recommended also in this case.
THE LIST OF NATURAL AND FRIENDLY FOOD
The good natural foods for contrasting ulcerative colitis and diarrhoea are more or less the following: persimmon, lemon juice (2-3 lemons, but not for the arthritis in the initial time of cure), dandelion, plantain, nettles, ginger, blueberries, red raspberries, blackberries, oatmeal with cereal milk, potatoes pure, almonds milk, apples (grated), raw grated carrots and potatoes, fresh salad, cabbage, mallow leaves, lupins, barley, millet, buckwheat, quinoa.
OTHER SPECIFIC ARTICLES ON YOUR PROBLEMS
I’ll do my best in sending you as soon as possible the English translation of important articles already published in Italian, as “Acido urico, gotta, artrite e macrobiotica” dated 25/6/10, “Artrite psoriasica, fibromyalgia e Parkinson”, dated 16/6/10, “Rettocolite e rivoluzione bircheriana”, dated 15/6/10, “Parkinson e rettocolite ulcerosa”, dated 5/7/10 and “Rettocolite e anemia addio”, dated 2/10/10. I will also include such articles in Italian to you and to Mauro, in order to get some temporary and rough translation.
