Arthritis is curable – why are people suffering?

by Peter H. Weis exclusive for

Rheumatoid Arthritis can be cured quickly and effectively in about 3 months, just by including a serving ofseafood – any kind of seafood – in one?s daily nutrition.

The reason is very simple and straightforward. Life evolved in the seas, and the seas have always contained, and still do, the 92 elements of the Earth in solution. Consequently, all but the most primitive microbial organisms need the complete natural range of the 72 nutritional trace elements (often also and incorrectly called trace ?minerals?) for their health and well being. Analyze any multicellular organism, be this plant or animal, marine or terrestrial, and you will find the 72 natural trace elements in its tissues and substance.

Today, seafood – any kind of seafood – is the only readily available food which still contains the complete natural range of the 72 trace elements. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by a simple trace element deficiency, and the 72 natural trace elements in seafood cures rheumatoid arthritis – exactly just as iodine in our table salt cures and prevents goitre and prevents cretinism.

In deadly contrast, our modern chemical agriculture recognizes and maintains only 8 trace elements (yes, that?s only eight) in its soils, and hence, in all of its products, and hence again, in practically all of our daily food.

This 150 year old ignorance and equally long neglect of the complete natural range of the 72 trace elements by our biomedical sciences and modern agriculture has resulted in a severe deficiency of about 64 trace elements in our daily food. This is the cause of a great many diseases – ranging from many cancers, many so-called ?incurable? mental and physiological diseases, to most auto-immune diseases, chief among them rheumatoid arthritis.

Here is an illustration and the reason why our own immune systems attack our own tissue and substance. In this image, the ?B? and ?D? are conceptual illustrations of a normal (?B?) protein, and an abnormal (?D?) protein, and the little blue stars represent a trace element.

All proteins are made from ribbons of amino acids which are folded into the specific and precise structure and shape of a protein, according to the instructions in our genes. Many trace elements perform a crucially important function in the proper folding of a protein. In most cases, an atom of a specific trace element lies at the nexus of every fold and turn – such as zinc in the folding of the ?zinc fingers? of the transcription factor proteins (see ?Zinc Fingers?, D. Rhodes and A. Klug, Scientific American, February 1993, or a brief synopsis on this page ).

Now then, when a needed trace element is missing when the protein is being made, it cannot help but be malformed – as in this conceptual illustration where a missing trace element in the middle of the ?B? protein results in the malformed ?D? protein.

Here, the little arrow indicates the trace element which is missing in the “D” form.

Of course, and naturally, and supremely effective as our immune system (normally) is, it does notrecognize the malformed protein as our own and does what it is dedicated to do – to destroy and get ridof this ?strange? protein.

This is the cause of rheumatoid arthritis, and of most auto-immune diseases (see appended list), as well as of most allergies, since the cause of allergies is similar and the response differs.

Now that we know what causes it, we also have the cure. The daily inclusion of food which supplies us with the complete natural range of the 72 nutritional trace elements will cure rheumatoid arthritis and most auto-immune diseases. Unfortunately, and in those countries which practice the modern but overly simplistic N-P-K chemical agriculture, there is no such food – not even ?organic? food, since the organic growers also don?t know about the crucial importance of the 72 natural trace elements to our health and well being .

The only readily available food – in these countries – which still contains the complete natural range of the 72 trace elements is seafood – any kind of seafood. And a daily serving of at least 6 ounces of seafood for the average person – and more is better, since all of our food is supposed to contain the 72 trace elements – will supply us with the absolute minimum of the 72 trace elements our bodies need to stay healthy and well.

All virgin ?wild? food – food which grows wild on lands which have never been cultivated – is also an excellent source of the 72 natural trace elements. But this is not readily available day in and day out.

Growing your own food with fish fertilizers and kelp or seaweed meal is another great source of the 72 natural trace elements, but you would have to grow a year round supply of such food to be effective.

Persuading your local market grower to grow produce and fruit with fish, kelp or seaweed fertilizers is another great way to obtain the 72 natural trace elements. This should be easy as the market grower will benefit substantially from greater yields and dramatic reduction in plant diseases at every stage of growth. This means great savings in fungi and bacteria-cides, and more money in the bank.

Local suppliers of eggs, chickens, beef and pork, could be similarly persuaded to add fish meal to the fodder of their livestock – and reap the great benefits of much healthier livestock in the bargain. For one, they won?t have to worry about ?Mad Cow? disease.

Finally, there is the final option of moving to Mumbai, or Sri Lanka, or to The Gambia, or any of the other undeveloped countries where cancers and auto-immune disease are extremely rare, as their daily food still contains the 72 natural trace elements, due to their traditional agriculture which returns all life-wastes to the soil, and along with them, all the 72 trace elements.

Based upon information in my web site I had been invited by the University of Lyons th th 1 to present my discovery at the 8 International Conference on Systems Science, September 1st – 4 at the University of Geneva, in Geneva, Switzerland, which I did.

This is a world class conference, in partnership with the World Health Organization, and my invited submission had been reviewed by 38 health experts in 38 countries, and upon their approval, again by a final Scientific Committee consisting of nine Professors in Health and Medicine at four European Universities.

It takes about 3 months of a faithful diet which includes a daily serving of seafood – any kind of seafood – before the 72 trace element level in the body is fully restored, and the condition is cured. In arthritis, although there is a great improvement in the deformities of fingers and hands, the healing of the cartilage is much slower.

The improvement in the condition are so subtle and all but imperceptible from day to day – just asgrowing is when we don?t see any evidence from day to day, only to realize three months later that wehave grown a centimeter or two – until we realize a month or two later that we are much better, andfinally, cured.

These results can be obtained anyplace, anytime, by any one.

The daily inclusion of a serving of seafood is absolutely necessary, since our bodies have never developed the ability to retain the trace elements – other than a bit of copper in the substantia nigra, without which we would be imbeciles. Retention of the trace elements was never necessary, as all food used to contain the complete natural range of the 72 trace elements, before the advent of our overly simplistic modern N-P-K (Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potash) chemical agriculture.

Unfortunately, we have to continue to include either a serving of seafood or other 72 trace element food in our daily nutrition, until our modern agriculture recognizes and maintains the full spectrum of the 72 natural trace elements in its soils, hence in all of its products, and hence again, in all of our daily food. Here then follows a list of 60 of the major auto-immune diseases, and some recognize as many as 103.
