Zentraveler loads up on cherry juice!

It goes something like this. “Yea doc my shoulder hurts and my big toes are red and feel like they are being pricked with an ice pick. You know I probably have some of that arth-i-ritis.”

Wait a minute before you start shopping around for some pain doctor’s and such— this is the time to apply Canada’s Red and Green comedy show formula. Now we need some splaining. (trying for some humor points—- Red and Green didn’t actually comment on cherry juice, but who knows maybe they will in the future). I will assure you that arthritis or gout is no laughing matter.

The body gets too much uric acid and then deposits crystals of sharp calcium which imbed in crazy places around the joints and cause inflammation. If the body has too much uric acid, which can come from the Kings Platter and drinking lots of booze, this uric acid sets up a pain clinic on your body. Everyone will tell you to lay off the red meats, lobster, crayfish, shrimp, pigs-feet, and booze in order for your body to return to an alkaline state. That will help, but that is not enough.

What you need to do is to dissolve the sharp crystals that cause the pain. Begin by eating fresh cherries and cherry juice for three weeks. Then take a break and start moving. Just like the dreaded mucus you can drive out most of the arthritis by becoming active and neutralize your body so that your uric acid and alkalinity are on an even keel. Change your diet to the Mediterranean Diet, which includes lots of fish, olive oil, and green salads and continue with the cherry juice until your body is back in balance. Then just like a well oiled car make cherry juice a part of your health regimen.

The secret to the benefits of cherry juice is a compound called anthocyanins, which are the pigments that give cherries their bright red color and are also believed to be the key to helping the body relieve inflammation. As an added bonus, these same anthocyanins may significantly reduce your risk for cancer, may help lower heart attack and stroke risk.

As a plus factor for changing your diet and keeping your body in an alkaline state (disease can only live in an acid state) you become disease free. So line up the cherry juice drinks, start exercising by walking, get on a rowing machine, start swimming, or do arm curls and leg pulls from your easy chair. You need to pump a lot of oxygen through your veins and bloodstream which will drive disease out the door.

Pure cherry juice is excellent for anyone who has gout, arthritis, bursitis, and inflammation of the joints and will also help in dissolving kidney stones.

Who said life was not a bowl of cherries. Maybe what they meant was if you don’t eat your cherries and neutralize your body life won’t be a bowl of cherries. The cherry juice will actually dissolve the sharp crystals which causes most of the pain. Make sure you get pure cherry juice from a health food store and not some kind of cherry drink with sugars. The purer the cherry juice the more effective it will be. All types of cherries are effective since they all have the same chemical composition.

Who knows maybe the cherry ingredient is why Warren Buffet (the richest man in the world for the year 2007) is so successful. His favorite drink is Cherry-Cola (not recommended) and by the way— he holds a large stock position in Coke-a-Cola.

Cherryo ole boy!

QUOTE: “Ch’uan-tzu searched for the fierce Fire of Enlightenment in water; The Old One understood him especially well. Because Chao-chou bequeathed to us the perplexing problem of affirming or denying existence. He himself believed only in the Absolute which is beyond existence, It has become harder to avoid the Question of good and evil in humanity.
