Arthritis is another autoimmune response that does not kill people. I have mentioned to people that the trouble with arthritis is that it does not kill you. You can just look forward to more pain each day. Arthritics usually laugh and agree. There is more than just the autoimmune response to mercury, root canals and other dental toxins; there is the imbalance in blood chemistries. When a person gets off of their Ancestral Diet such that calcium precipitates, the joints will become more inflamed and calcium deposits will restrict joint movement as well as present you with pain. Pain medication is generally prescribed, but, it may just allow you to move the joints without pain, thus further injuring the already damaged joints. All systems of the protocol must be addressed to achieve improvement with arthritis. It is not just pain management.
