When Glenn Frey, a force co-founder and driving 70 supergroup Eagles, died on Jan. 18, was not only saddened by the loss from . I was deeply concerned about how his death.
press reports indicated that Frey died of a combination of “complications” of Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) , one of the most debilitating chronic diseases.
Ra is a inflammatory autoimmune condition . It affects the whole body – particularly the joints. The body develops antibodies against its own tissues of the joints, break them down.
A modern inflammatory diet, genetic factors and food allergies play an important role in the development of RA. toxins and environmental pollution also cause inflammation and contribute to disease.
But there is a dark undercurrent of Frey’s death will never hear of conventional medicine. – Especially if you are suffering from rheumatoid arthritis same
The standard conventional treatment for RA is based in large pharmaceutical drugs to cover up the symptoms. However, many people quit drugs because of serious side effects.
singer and guitarist of The Eagle not abandon them. And some of these “complications” mentioned by news reports – and death – are undoubtedly the result of this decision
Let me explain …
Medicines for. large pharmaceutical companies used for the treatment of RA are called “ modifying antirheumatic drugs disease ” or FAME . You may know them as Humira, Remicade and Enbrel. These so-called “biologics” work to suppress the overactive immune system of patients, and that makes them vulnerable to infection.
Although Frey suffered for years with the pain of rheumatoid arthritis, in the end what killed him was pneumonia and colitis -. What could have been the result of drugs that wreaked havoc on their immune system
Studies have already linked to Humira or Remicade for pneumonia and lymphoma, tuberculosis and skin, gastrointestinal, breast and lung tumors. 1 2
I do not prescribe any of those drugs for the treatment of RA. Instead, I help my patients cool inflammation with diet and nutrients, especially Vitamin K2 .
A brand new study in the European Journal of Pharmacology shows vitamin K2 is effective in the treatment of RA. 3
They divided 84 patients with RA into two groups. One group received 100 mcg of a special form of vitamin K2 daily in addition to their RA medications. The other group of drugs just received.
After three months, the K2 group had a significant decrease in four measures of inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis. They also showed higher levels of osteocalcin, an important marker of bone health. And unlike drugs, no toxic side effects were observed vitamin.
Unfortunately, modern Western diet is deficient in vitamin K2. But you can do much for the consumption of K2 traditional staple foods as our ancestors did.
Here are four good choices:
grass-fed meats organs – If you have a taste for it, the liver is an excellent source of K2 . Personally, I love liver and onions. But be sure to get your viscera grass-fed, cattle farmyard animals. Animals that eat grass convert vitamin K1 K2 greens. If you eat grains do not get the raw material to make the conversion.
egg yolks – I’ve been telling my patients for years that eggs are not the enemy. They give it a good dose of K2, as well as plenty of other vitamins and nutrients. Whenever possible, choose, vegetarian fed pasture-raised eggs.
grass fed raw or whole milk – Like organ meats, milk of grass-fed animals is rich in vitamin K2. Make sure it’s all fat, and if possible, I would even recommend raw milk. Many states have cooperatives that sell. But check your local laws, as some states illegal raw milk.
Traditionally fermented cheese – highest in K2 are Gouda cheese and Brie. Each contains approximately 75 mcg per ounce. Other good choices are Edam, Emmental Swiss, and Norwegian Jarlsberg.
can also take a supplement of vitamin K2. Just remember that K2 is not the same as K1. Vitamin K1 aid blood clotting, but not the bones and joints.
Vitamin K2 is different menaquinones calls in several ways. They are numbered from four to nine. The higher the number, the more bioavailable and long lasting K2.
You can see many supplements MK-4. But MK-4 has a very short biological half-life of only about an hour.
Look for a supplement with the MK-7 form. That is the form used in the most recent study of RA. It is much more bioactive than MK-4 and has an average life of three days, so you have time to accumulate in the blood.
you recommend 45-90 mcg of vitamin K2 per day. And it is fat soluble, so taken with meals to improve absorption.
Meanwhile, we also recommend that you get enough vitamin D. Almost all autoimmune diseases appear to be caused by a deficiency of vitamin D, and RA is no different. Studies show that vitamin D may reduce the incidence of rheumatoid arthritis by as much as 34%.
The sun is good for you.
So be sure to get enough regular exposure sun . Getting some midday sun unprotected for 10 to 15 minutes a day will give between 3,000 and 5,000 IU of vitamin D3.
Make sure you also add food sources of vitamin D3 to your daily diet. A serving of cooked wild salmon and mackerel provide about 350 IU of vitamin D3 each. Sardines and tuna in oil provide about 225 IU of vitamin D3 each. And a spoonful of cod liver oil contains about 1,400 IU of vitamin D3.
can also get vitamin D3 supplements, including vitamin K2. These not only help fight RA, but also activate and enhance the absorption of vitamin D3.
To your good health,
