"Many different forms of arthritis
and gout are the result of acid accumulation in the joints. Heavy people
add more pressure on their joints, thus speeding up wear and tear;
however, a young person seems
to do fine even if he is heavy. It is the
accumulated acid that damages cartilages and irritates the joints.
Unfortunately, the joints are where the blood cannot carry out wastes
Gout is the accumulation of uric acid in the joints.
According to Webster, gout is a disease resulting from a disturbance of
metabolism, characterized by an excess of uric acid in the blood and
deposits of uric acid salts in the tissues around the joints, especially
of the feet and hands: it causes swelling and severe pain, especially in
the big toe.
In today's medicine, there is no effective treatment
for these types of degenerative diseases. Because it is painful, one
instinctively takes pain killers; however, aspirin types are acidic and
they can further irritate the joints. The sooner we accept the fact that
these diseases are the result of
too much acidic waste, the sooner we
will find the cure for these problems."
