I have arthritic pain that I have not written very much about at notyourrawmwma, especially since I found The Unique Healing Program. The reason being that I have always known that my hip pain is a result of my poor gut health. I have believed this for years, way before finding The Unique Healing Program. Despite what others had told me, I knew that healing my gut was the only way to heal my pain and any other malady in my body. This was not the feedback I got from bodyworkers, acupuncturists, any chiropractor and other alternative practitioners. There was some encouragement from some experienced members of the Raw Food Community, The Body Ecology Diet and Structural Integration, but years of diligently pursuing all of those did not lessen my pain.
LET’S CALL IT WHAT IT IS
I do not like the western medical establishment signature way of compiling symptoms, and creating names for specific illnesses from those symptoms. What drives that, for the most part, is medical research and pharmaceutical companies. On a individual level Disease Diagnosing can create a sense of negative belonging and self definition. The pink ribbon for breast cancer is one example.With that said, I am using the words Septic Arthritis for a higher purpose.
HOW DID I FIND SEPTIC ARTHRITIS?
One day recently, I decided to do a search for Parasitic Bacterial Infections linked to Arthritis. The term Septic Arthritis immediately came up. The word Septic, as in Septic Tank, completely resonated with me and my experience with pain. I had never heard the term Septic Arthritis before, but I am sure the description of this particular kind of Arthritis is the base reason for more Arthritic cases than just a select few. I would say all. Why? Because arthritis is the result of toxins building up in our bodies and weakening our immune systems. Creating a stronger immune system is not the manner in which Arthritis is discussed or treated by most any Western Medical Doctors I know of. Many people go to a doctor when they have pain and are often diagnosed with Arthritis. This diagnosis is, for many, a free pass to live, or continue to live, in the world of over the counter managed pain.The overall mindset goes something like this: Chronic and acute pain is what happens when you get older. It is inevitable, everyone has it. Bartender, pour me another glass of wine. The diagnosis Arthritis is a permission slip to go on as before. What are ya gonna do? My mother had it, my grandfather had it, my cousin has it. We have all heard, said or even thought those words at some point in our lives.
Here is a link to one description of Septic Arthritis. Not brilliant, but I think you will get the basic drift.
Here is a link for those who do not know what a Septic Tank is and what it does.
I have to make note here about the advertising of pain supplements as an excellent barometer for the diminishment of health in the US and around the world. The television commercials alone are more and more often targeted at a younger audience of people in their 30’s. The Rheumatiod Arthritis prescription drug Humira is one example. One commercial features a mother getting back to being able to play with her children. Over the counter drugs such as Aleve, Motrin, Bayer, Excedrin, etcetera are often being peddled to athletes of high school and college age. Truth be told, children are also taking these pain relievers.
MAYBE A NEW IDEA: INFLAMMATION IS INFLAMMATION WHEREVER IT IS LOCATED IN THE BODY
So, if you have IBS or acid reflux, or any other kind of ongoing inflamed condition, it is highly likely that you will eventually experience joint pain. For some having an injury is how aching pain is first experienced. It is treated like a chicken or the egg type of situation by most Western Medical Doctors. Which came first? I think it is clear from what I have written here where I stand on that one. The body is in an acid state and an injury is not able to heal completely under those circumstances.This is especially apparent as people get older or if their immune system is deeply compromised.
I have many thoughts on linking the resolution to pain with clearing the bacterial infection in the gut that leads to poor quality of blood. If you are reading this blog you probably have those thoughts, or are open to them. The Unique Healing Program is the way I have found to resolve pain and inflammation through healing gut inflammation. If you are unfamiliar with the The Unique Healing Program here is a link. In order to understand the connection of gut health and inflammation watching some of The UHP videos and reading the first chapter of Unique Healing 1 online is a good start.
Often pain begins in one joint. One of the descriptions of Septic Arthritis talks about this. Hips are located near intestinal junctions where waste matter often gets stuck. Bingo! Necrotic material sitting in the body that can easily be there for years, maybe a lifetime. Can this cause pain in the body? What do you think? If you don’t know the answer mine is an overwhelming YES!
Much more about pain in the next blog posts. Hope this gets the discussion going and helps someone out there looking for an answer for healing that does not involve drugs, more drugs, a surgery or more surgeries. BTW, if you have had surgery to replace a joint or something else in your body, do not despair. Healing your gut will make your life better and that is all that matters. You are alive and whatever you have done in the past is part of your journey in life. I truly mean that.
