arthritis, joint pain and herbs that help

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on January 29, 2011

Arthritis, heart disease and cancer are all diseases of inflammation – what helps one may very well help the others – if you need info about cancer there is a lot of info on this site – please browse – also get an overview of cancer from my two cancer books –

Arthritis, Joint Pain and Herbs that help

The following article by Dr Michael Cutler posted in Natural News contains a list of herbs that can help –

In his article he recommends the following herbs

  • Alfalfa which provides essential minerals for bone development and can either be eaten as a raw plant or taken in capsule form.
  • Amur Corktree is an herb sold under the name Nexrutine and has anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Boswellia extract can help control osteoarthritis and reduce inflammation.
  • Bromelain is an enzyme extracted from pineapples that reduces inflammation.
  • Capsicum is also known as cayenne pepper, chili pepper and red pepper. It contains ample amounts of capsaicin, which causes the pungent and irritating effects. Applying this herb as an ointment or cream multiple times a day can provide you with real relief from joint pain.
  • Devil’s Claw root is a pain-reliever and anti-inflammatory, and is often found in herbal combinations for arthritis.
  • Ginger extract can help moderately reduce osteoarthritis pain according to some studies.
  • Keratin is found in much of your body’s connective tissue such as skin, hair and teeth and is high in the amino acid cysteine, which is a shock-absorber and helps strengthen weight-bearing joints. Keratin is found in a scientifically formulated compound that can counteract joint destruction over time.
  • Korean Angelica is an herbal agent that works on the central nervous system to help fight inflammatory pain throughout the body.
  • Nobiletin has been shown in laboratory animals to dramatically suppress destructive inflammation.
  • SAMEe (S-Adenosyl-Methionine) is as effective as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in increasing joint function and decreasing pain without the side effects.
  • Stinging Nettle leaf extracts help restrain the inflammation in autoimmune conditions like those found in rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Willow Bark contains substances with powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

Black seed oil – immune regulator and anti-fungal

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on January 21, 2011

There’s a lot of info on this site so do browse – this supports the info in my two cancer books –

Black seed oil – immune regulator and anti-fungal agent

Black seed oil appears to have very strong immune strengthening and anti-fungal qualities that make it very interesting for cancer patients. Interestingly it is not recommended for pregnant women. The growth of tumours shares some interesting characteristics with the growth of a foetus so if anything works against one it is very likely to have a negative effect on the other.

“Calling black cumin a magical cure would certainly be an exaggeration, but it is almost impossible not to exaggerate its effectiveness.” – Peter Schleicher M.D.

Cancer Charity Scam?

Cancer Charity Scam?

The role of the American Cancer Society and the work it does (or doesn’t) do needs to be more widely known. If you are thinking of donating money to cancer research then you should read this article

The illogic of scientists

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on January 17, 2011

There’s a lot of info on this site – and also in my two cancer books – for details

The Illogic of Scientists

A common failing of scientists is that you often find them arguing as follows: This can’t work because the explanation you have made is stupid, therefore it doesn’t work.

I hope you see the flaw in this argument. We see this in operation in the following:

1. Homeopathy cannot work because there is no possibility that a dilute homeopathic solution can contain even one molecule of the active ingredient – therefore it doesn’t work.

2. Simoncini is wrong to argue that cancer is a fungus and therefore his sodium bicarbonate injections cannot work.

There is only one way to find out if something works or not and that is to test it. If it works it works whether or not our explanation for how it works is right or wrong.

French alternative therapies for various conditions

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on January 15, 2011

If you have cancer then there is a lot of info you should read on this site and in my two cancer books – see for details

French alternative therapies for various conditions

‘Francoise’ posted this info on a yahoo chat group. Thanks Francoise:

I am French and I am not a therapist, but I have inquired on Internet, about all sorts of methods. I know several methods from all over the world, therefore I got the idea to tell all other the world about the best French methods I have found! I have tried some, and I have asked questions and compared. I can each time tell I have been personally satisfied or some close friends were.

Those methods were all created in France, and their creators are still alive, most of these discoveries are from the last 20 years.

1) Cure for asthma, allergies, eczema, psoriasis… I just saw about the Buteyko method here. A Spanish center practices it, + proposes this French method that can cure asthma from another complementary point of view. Did you know it? It is called the Gesret method.

This is the forum, there are also explanation in an extended website.
This treatment is not osteopathy, but it is done by hand on all the body and especially on the ribs, and modifies the sympathetic system.

There is a free treatment (end 2010) proposed in England (London) by a French practitioner who wants to promote it abroad. It is also known in several countries. I personally know several people who were cured. Usually the treatment is 3-4 times, less for children. It takes more time for psoriasis.

The method helps for a posture change, and an autonomous nervous system change. It can also be helped by the next method I present.

2) Myotherapy:
(English pages)
This was created by the French Doctor Jan Polak, and has some point in common with the Jones techniques, though it is different in many points. I have experimented it myself. It is mild but has a surprising strong effect in relaxing contracted muscles. This is tremendous on years old pains.
Instead of streching some muscles that are called posture muscles, he has discovered that it was more efficient to shorten them in a passive way. When you strech muscles (that you can do on dynamics muscles), postural muscles contract again (as a natural reflex that protects us during shocks), and the therapy must go on and on… because this reflex keeps itself going on.

With this technique, simple movements of the neck or ankles (the 2 sides of our body) leads to a passive shortening of specific muscles. Then the therapist puts the body back to its normal posture, soooo slowly that the nerves in the muscles will keep the information of relaxing, and this stops the myospam that had been there for so long. It is mostly used on chronic cases, even strong headaches, and many sorts of foot or back problems, with surprising success. It is also very powerful after twisted ankles or after a broken leg (recovery), and after surgery (sore neck). A session can be long, and you need on average 3-4 on chronic cases. After a session, you feel very relaxed, I would say “zen”, so it is also emotionally pleasant.

3) Niromathé method:
(English pages)
This was also created by a doctor, but who has long been an osteopath, along with another osteopath. They are called Raymond Branly and Thierry Vandorme. They created their method after comparing the similarities between some famous bone-settlers.
I have experienced it myself as well, it is soft, incredibly short (treated efficiently in 15 mn), and you receive the treatment standing! I did not suffer any acute case where it seems so wonderful, and mostly I have heard the enthusiasm of the therapist about it (and he said some colleagues felt the same). Among all the tools that many good therapists try to learn year after year, this technique seemed to have become their favorite when they know it. It got me rid of nerve pains in my arms/hands in 1 session.
The practitioner seems to be playing the guitar on the strings of your ligaments and muscles. It does not hurt. You are always treated at the limits of the position that hurts, so that the body indicates its needs.
I know it is also used on horses, and it is less tiring than other techniques, as you do not have to carry any horse leg.

I have had many problems because of horse riding, and I have gathered a lot of informations, that I was looking for myself. I can give more informations to all those who want to know more. I know you can visit the websites, but it is always appreciated to have direct information, so do not hesitate. We know some foreign techniques in France, and I might help that our best techniques will be of some use else where. I also know that therapists always look for better and complementary techniques to learn!

Hope I have been of some help…

cancer, sodium bicarbonate & blackstrap molasses

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on January 14, 2011

There’s a lot of information on this site – supplementing the info in my two cancer books – see

Sodium bicarbonate and blackstrap molasses

It is well-known that sodium bicarbonate has a powerful impact on cancer by making the surrounding tissue alkaline. One way of getting it into a cell appears to be mixing it with sweetening agent. The link below takes you to a site whose author used blackstrap molasses (rather than the more usually recommended maple syrup) – it had an immediate impact as you can see from his story


NOTE: The 2012 edition of The Cancer Survivor’s Bible is now available – see for details

“Mr Chamberlain has a voice that is at once humble and powerful. I like writers that cut to the chase and then do not skimp on the practical details.”

FDA vitamin C ruling is outrageous

There is an enormous amount of information on this site – supplementing the information in my two cancer books – see for details

FDA’s Vitamin C ruling is outrageous

The fact that there is collusion between the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry – to the potential detriment of your health and mine –  is nowhere more evident than this recent ruling to penalise makers of injectable vitamin C – see story here.

Fortunately not everyone is falling into line. Vermont has taken steps to limit the impact of the FDA as this story explains:
