Allergic Arthritis

Toe To Head Pain

Allergic Arthritis

A prominent food toxin that is said to affect knees is piperine,

found in the pepper family which includes black and white

pepper (not cayenne). The Solanaceae family of plants (potatoes,

tomatoes, eggplant, tobacco!) also has a common “allergen” that

produces joint pain. Try going off these for two weeks to see if it

helps. Two more chemicals that can trigger arthritis-like pain are

hippuric acid and phenylisothiocyanate (PIT).

Your body makes large amounts of hippuric acid, up to a

gram a day. It is the product of benzoic acid detoxification by the

liver. Quite a few fruits contain natural benzoic acid. But we can

easily triple and quadruple our benzoic acid intake by consuming

commercial beverages and pastries where benzoic acid is used

as a preservative. It is indeed a “natural” preservative. All of it

must be detoxified, though, and this gives us way too much

hippuric acid. The kidneys are unable to excrete such overloads

of hippuric acid, so it distributes itself in our organs. I suspect a

simple mechanism could explain its pain-triggering action:

hippuric acid molecules could attach themselves to our cell's

conductance channels keeping the gates jammed open. This might

invite bacteria and viruses to enter there. But there are also

hippuric acid-loving bacteria that feed on it. Perhaps hippuric

acid can cause pain without the help of bacteria. This requires

further study. It is only sensible for persons with chronic pain not

to consume benzoic acid (or benzoate) preserved foods.

PIT is a food chemical found especially in chicken, eggs, the

cabbage family, peas. PIT is also part of the body's own chemistry,

taking place in the liver, and involving detoxification of

cyanide-containing foods. Many vegetables, notably the cabbage

family, contain such cyanides, giving them protection from

insects, disease, and grazing animals. It can take the liver a

week to detoxify a meal full of these cyanides: in the meantime,

PIT levels are higher in the body. PIT is very reactive. In fact, it

is the chemical used as a general reactant with amino acids in the

well known Edman degradation reaction. But now, your body is

the reaction flask, supplying the amino acids. Since all organs

supply amino acids, it is no wonder they can all react to PIT,

giving you multiple allergic reactions and pains.

If you have any kind of arthritis, stop eating the high-PIT

foods and clean the liver until you are free of all allergies you

are aware of. This suggests that the liver is capable, again, of

detoxifying the cyanides for you in a reasonable time and you

may eat them again. These foods do have many benefits, of


Joint pain, or arthritis, was known in antiquity long before

dogs and cats were household pets and giving us their parasites.

Pigs and horses harbor these roundworms too and may have been

the source at that time.

Herbs and treatments that help arthritis are, therefore, plentiful.

Maybe they act by killing roundworms, bacteria, and viruses,

or help metabolize hippuric acid and PIT. Homeopathic

treatments, as well as massage, heat and electronic devices also

help. With this wide range of effective treatments dating to the

distant past, why is none of them a permanent cure? The answer

is simple. The common roundworms are everywhere about us,

sanitation is poor, and our civilized lifestyle leads to deposit

formation that invites bacteria. But knowing this, you can stop

your pain and remove the causes to become one of the first humans

to achieve a permanent cure.

Verna Plumb, age 46, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis four

years earlier. Since then she had been continuously on

methotrexateTM and prednisone.TM This had caused her to gain a lot

of weight from water retention. The drugs were no longer effective

and she would need to do something else very soon. She had the

typical causes: her body was toxic with mercury and nickel from

tooth fillings. Her kidneys were full of five kinds of

stones. She had numerous roundworm parasites including two

kinds of Ascaris, two kinds of hookworm, Strongyloides and Trichinella.

She would have to clean everything up to get relief. She

started on the kidney herbs, killed parasites with a frequency generator

and in two months noticed her swelling was receding.

Camille Franklin had hands that were swollen and hot and painful. She

also had “arthritis” in shoulders and knees. We explained that

shoulders were not part of the arthritis picture. She could deal with

that in a single evening, soon. She also had bone spurs at sinuses

which needed surgical removal. Her kidneys revealed tricalcium

phosphate crystals. She was given a diet change; onto milk, fruits

and vegetables, off other beverages, less meat and grains. She

was started on kidney herbs. In five weeks all the swelling and

redness and heat was out of her finger joints.
