Day one – fast for full 24 hours. No tea, coffee or fruit juices. Drink minimum of 32 oz water during this time.
Day two – eat only fresh RAW fruit and vegetables. Dried fruits, like raisins, prunes, figs and dates are acceptable only if sun ripened. Do not use citrus furits in the acute stages of arthritis.
Day three – add un-processed seafood to the diet. No breaded fish. Plus UNTREATED milk. (goats or sheep milk could be an alternative as its quite hard to find the untreated sort). Also introduce organ meats – hearts liver and kidneys.
Gradually re-introduce other foods. (Not processed and the previously mentioned additives).
Sometimes when meat is add and increased stiffness may be noticed the next morning. If so, discontinue the meat for a week and then try it again. If stiffness does not return it can be added regularly to the diet. If stiffness recurs, discontinue the meat for two weeks and then try again.
Observer yourself carefully each time you add a new food to the diet. Remember, only one new food should be added at a time to determine whether or not it causes joint stiffness the next day. If it does, that food should be avoided. Some people with arthritis cannot tolerate milk Include fresh nuts. Use minimum of water when cooking vegetable and undercook these.
Within 3 to 10 days pain and swelling should disappear. Elimination is just as important as diet and bowel movement must be regular.
