Easy Remedy to Eliminate Back and Joint Pain

The Healthy Food Team recently posted an article that cited a military doctor’s advice for eliminating pain in the back, joints and legs. People who have used this method consider it a miracle cure for the kind of pain that can be hard to manage. Best of all, you can expect to see results within seven days.

The treatment works because it restores lubrication in the joints. Healthy joints are important not just for movement, but for overall health. Everything in our body is connected and interdependent. Recent revelations about painkillers emphasize the importance of finding natural ways to manage discomfort.

Here is the recipe:

Purchase 150 grams of edible gelatin (this is enough for a one-month course of treatment).

In the evening, stir 5 grams of gelatin (two flat teaspoons) into a quarter cup of cold water (use water from the refrigerator).

Mix well, and let the mixture stand until morning at room temperature.

The next morning, the gelatin mixture will have swollen into jelly.

Drink the mixture in the morning on an empty stomach. If you like, add juice or water, or you can mix the jelly into yogurt, or any other combination that appeals to you.

The recommended duration of the treatment is one month, but most people feel significantly better within a week. Repeat the course in six months.

Gelatin is an animal protein obtained from connective tissue of large horned cattle, including tendons, bones, cartilage, and collagen. Gelatin improves the strength of internal fibers and small cells. Two amino acids are present in gelatin: proline and hidrosiprolin, which have a positive impact on the recovery of connective tissue. Gelatin works to improve diseased joints by increasing the growth and scope of the connective tissue.

In fact, the article says gelatin offers a number of advantages:

Strengthens joints and heart muscle
– Improves metabolism
– Increases mental ability
– Maintains healthy skin condition
– Gives elasticity and strength to the tendons and ligaments
– Prevents the development of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
– Leads to improved growth and structure of hair and nails
– Irreplaceable at dysplasia

One user of this remedy said spinal pain and neck stiffness, the result of long hours spent sitting at the computer, both resolved in seven days. Within a month, all the back pain was gone, and he felt much better overall. He is continuing to use the remedy every six months.

4 Unexpected Reasons To Eat Celery Now

If you’re like most Americans, you have no grand love affair with celery.

Yes, you know it’s good for you, as all vegetables are good for you.

But the specifics on why celery is “good for your heath” might elude you.

Fact is there’s quite a bit of untold goodness when it comes to celery. And there’s plenty of science to back up the advice to keep on eating this juicy vegetable.

We know now celery is capable of helping you

  • Enhance your immune system
  • Digest food better
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Lose weight

And here’s how celery accomplishes this.

4 Benefits of Celery

1. Enhances the immune system: Celery contains special nutritive compounds that are actually anti-microbial. This means in the presence of these compounds bacteria are unable to replicate and have trouble growing. How do we know this?  In 2009 the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology performed a study that proved both celery seed and celery plant observed the anti-microbial effect of these compounds.

Their research led them to conclude celery is a natural immune enhancer.

2. Aids digestion: Dr. Axe observes how celery can help both with digestion as well as bloating.

He writes:

Celery seeds contain an odorless and oily compound known as NBP that has a diuretic effect and helps the body to detox. In studies involving rats, urine volume was significantly greater when rats were given celery extract compared to a control group. (6)

The digestive benefits of celery are partly due to its diuretic effect. This could also be one of the possible anti-hypertensive mechanisms of celery seeds that helps to lower blood pressure. Because it improves circulation within the intestines, it’s also useful for improving digestion by helping to relieve bloating and puffiness from water retention.

3. Lowers inflammation: Associated with the same group of compounds that help celery fight infection are antioxidants which reduce the chances of developing diseases associated with chronic inflammation.

Included in this list are polysaccharides and flavonoid and polyphenol antioxidants that have been shown to scavenge for free-radials and neutralized them.

Dr. Axe writes:

Researchers have identified over a dozen different types of antioxidants that are responsible for the benefits of celery — these include such phenolic acids as caffeic acid and ferulic acid, plus flavaols like quecetin. This makes celery useful for treating a wide range of conditions that are made worse by inflammation: joint pain (such as from arthritis), gout, kidney and liver infections, skin disorders, irritable bowel syndrome and urinary tract infections, just to name a few.

4: Weight Loss: This is one of the more enticing reasons to eat celery. The reason celery can help with weight loss is because it contains nutrients aiding in the metabolism of lipids (fats). Despite what you might believe, celery is anything but “empty.”

It is quite nutrient dense as it has electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals which all aid in ideal health.  As it is full of fiber, it can also help you eliminate excess food matter from the intestines which is helpful for losing weight quickly.

Point blank, celery is good for you.

But don’t think that gives you a license to enjoy it with all the peanut butter and blue cheese you want.
