Somewhere along the
line, most arthritis sufferers fall into the fast food trap or
simply neglect to feed their bodies the wholesome, organic foods
required to maintain good health. Add to this their enervating, hectic lifestyles, so wrought with
nervous tension and anxiety, and one can see how the onslaught of
acid reflux and
other rheumatic disorders develop and lead to a number of
unfortunate biological changes in major systems, glands and organs.
Organic sodium – the untold story
outcome is that the body quickly uses up its organic sodium reserves
to try and neutralize the excess acids creating such pathological
havoc as acid reflux, arthritis and bursitis, throughout the body.
Although we have found the prevalence of organic potassium to be an
essential component in the task of acid neutralization, it is organic
sodium that has the distinction of being the most utilitarian
chemical element in the body’s efforts to reverse the so-called disease
processes commonly referred to as arthritis, acid reflux, bursitis and
other rheumatic ailments.
The stomach, joints
and lymph are where the highest concentrations of organic sodium
are found. When there is a lack of organic sodium in the blood and lymph
streams it’s difficult to maintain the proper amount of hydrochloric
acid normally produced by cells in the stomach wall. Although we need
hydrochloric acid to break down certain food elements such as proteins
and calcium, an over abundance will create an acid stomach
environment. Organic sodium helps neutralize excess hydrochloric
When the demands for
organic sodium increase due to stress, changes in lifestyle, lack of
exercise, poor diet or the onset of acid reflux or some other
sodium-deficient, rheumatic disorder, organic sodium will be leeched
from the stomach wall and sent throughout the body, via the blood and lymph
streams, to those areas where it’s needed to reduce acids. After a time
the body senses it must seek organic sodium from a secondary source – the joints,
lymph and interstitial fluids..
Ahhh yes, you say.
You’re beginning to see the picture. Robbing Peter to pay Paul is
the operative principle at work in the body at this stage of the game.
The unhappy path to tissue degeneration
As the demands for
organic sodium continue to steadily increase, the body reaches a point
where there is little if any organic sodium forthcoming from the
joints. At this point the joints undergo destructive biological
changes. This is when the general constitution of the synovial
membrane, cartilage and bone integrity begin to degrade.
Many of our
esteemed and quite brilliant colleagues at other facilities worldwide
feel that adrenal exhaustion brought on by chronic stress is the major
cause of rheumatic disorders such as arthritis. Their contention is
that a tired body does not possess the necessary power to expel
metabolic waste efficiently – particularly carbonic acid. This leads to
an overly toxic condition known as toxemia where irritation,
inflammation, catarrh and eventually the weakening of major tissue
groups, such as glands and organs. In such an environment the body is
prone to health impairment.
Our colleagues then
point to the subsequent inability of the body to produce hormones such
as cortisone, desoxycortisone and aldosterone, which in turn leads to
widespread systemic imbalance and to degradation of essential biological
functions. The result being greater susceptibility to further stress and
subsequently a greater predisposition to developing arthritis.
Although we agree
with this sage assessment of the preliminary stages preceding the
development of acid reflux, arthritis or other rheumatic disorders, our
own clinical investigations, which are supported by what I witnessed at
Jensen’s clinic, indicates a lack of organic sodium to be
the main factor responsible for the development of arthritis and other
acid-related disorders. Stress, lack of adequate sleep, systemic
toxicity, lack of exercise and other considerations are contributing
factors, but poor diet heads the list. Our patients respond
quicker to a diet high in organic sodium than to any other
curative measure known.
The importance of keeping our joints well-oiled
The first symptoms of, for example, rheumatoid
arthritis developing can be an occasional dull or sharp pain in a joint
that will usually increase in intensity and duration with each passing
week. Then there is usually stiffness in the joint concurrent with pain.
Subsequently many arthritis suffers will begin to experience painful
swelling of the joint.
Many of these symptoms are a consequence of synovial fluid
not being produced in sufficient quantities by the synovial membrane in
the joint. Synovial fluid is to a joint what oil is to metal parts in an
automobile engine. When you’re low in oil the engine starts developing
too much friction from metal parts rubbing against each other.
Eventually enough foreign matter can collect in the engine and the
piston chambers can overheat, expand and lock up the engine.
similar to what happens in your body when the male and female parts of a
joint don’t have enough synovial fluid to allow proper lubrication and
movement of the joint. Without sufficient quantities of synovial fluid
to keep organic and inorganic minerals in solution, calcium in
particular can begin to collect in the joint.
Depending on whether the person is developing
rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis with its signature cartilage deterioration, will
determine the path of tissue degeneration from that point. If bone
fusion takes place due to calcium dropping out of lymphatic
solution and then settling in the joints, this can mean
life-altering confinement to bed or a wheelchair. Others more
‘fortunate,’ who have experienced minor joint disfigurement, are
free to move about, to a greater or lesser extent, with great pain
Biological treatment and nature cure to the rescue
usually the point when patients come to us for help.
Depending on the case, we are often able to deliver sufficient
biological care and treatment to a patient where there can often be a
complete, natural reversal of the arthritic condition. If a client with
arthritis adheres to our recommended program to the letter, the recovery can begin to take hold within
two or three weeks after
beginning our biological treatment program.
A complete recovery is possible within a
few short months to
a year provided a client is willing to adopt a much more
biologically friendly lifestyle and continue to follow a wholesome food
and beverage regimen after completing the initial fats and fast breaking
programs. they leave our sanitarium or otherwise follow our
recommendations. Many ‘cures’ seem to be permanent whereas other clients
who stray away from our recommended maintenance program may require
another visit to our facility to ‘get back on track.’
