Arthritis: inflammation of the  joints,.  Actually, arthritis is a  condition of low-grade inflammation that attacks or manifests in most parts of the body, but with different names.

Arthritis is classified as osteo or rheumatoid, but these useless descriptions because the core issue is WHY is there underlying inflammation in the body? You will see the work arthritis tacked onto may medical words such as crystal arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, etc.

The names do not matter.  Medical labels describe symptoms and location and make the patient feel special, but NEVER explain or offer a solution other than palliative drugs and often, killer drugs.  See Virtual Doctors & Virtual Medicine to better understand the problem that people face when they enroll in the sick-care system.


Arthritis is nothing more than an autoimmune response.  Patients and practitioners WRONGLY describe all things AUTOIMMUNE as  the immune system attacking the host’s body, hence, AUTOimmune.

There are two type of arthritis: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid . Osteoarthritis is crippling because movement and comfort are painful.  Rheumatoid is a killer because here, the joints of the body DISSOLVE.

Regardless, the body is fully capable of reversing arthritis and can and will do so if the individual assists and stops sabotaging the process.  Since people do not understand much of anything about autoimmune, they have not a clue how to deal with it.  [The purpose of YAC is to teach people what they don’t know and help them avoid falling prey to medical myth.]

Arthritis is NOT a disease; it a condition of neglect and abuse.

Osteoarthritis involves swelling, stiffness and restricted movement.  Rheumatoid arthritis causes the joints to dissolve and fall apart putting it into the same category as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular problems.

NSAIDS and medications are used to combat arthritis related pain and suffering, however, they are do not address why the patient suffers and what to do about reversing the problem.

Pain killers provoke the Autoimmune Attack Cycle making it ever more pronounced. Understanding the Autoimmune Attack Cycle is critical to resolving issues of arthritis, regardless of type.

For women who are having hormonal difficulties, particularly menopausal and post menopausal women, it is important to understand that the adrenals and thyroid influence hormonal balance, sweats, hot flashes and sleep and often manifest as arthritis pain.

And behind issues HORMONE and issues AUTOIMMUNE is mold and fungal takeover of the vital and regulatory organs and hormones.  See the Mold & Fungus Protocol to learn more.

It should be noted that insulin and leptin resistance is a CORE factor in arthritis; so much so, that if resistance issues are not resolved, hypothyroid, obesity, premature aging and systemic inflammation, (particularly in women) can be expected.

Lastly, there is more than STRONG evidence that cognitive issues from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to vascular dementia, brain fog, ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s and autism are directly related to low-grade inflammation in the brain and adrenaline resistance.

Brain and neurological disorders are manifestations of systemic inflammation [the symptom] driven by mycotoxin dominance and unopposed calcium dominance along with other fundamental issues, including elevated acidity of body tissues and organs.
