Foods that Fight Joint Pain: A Nutritional Guide

In recent years, there’s been a troubling trend of joint health issues affecting younger individuals, defying the common perception that joint pain is a problem for the elderly. Increasingly, people in their 30s and 40s are reporting symptoms typically associated with aging, such as stiffness, pain, and reduced mobility. But why is this happening, and what can be done about it?

Young or old, it’s never too late to start addressing these issues. On this podcast episode, Ed discusses the impact of certain foods on joint health, a topic especially meaningful to him because of his experience with double hip replacement. He explores a few of the foods, supplements, and nutritional products that helped him on his journey towards healing.

He covers five key areas: Oxalates, Acidity, Omega-6 vs. Omega-3, Protein intake, and Glyphosate. By addressing each of these dietary factors, you can reduce joint pain and improve your overall health!

It’s a topic near and dear to my heart because I had double hip replacement less than a year ago. I’ve also heard and listen to people for 45 years, like the one an hour ago who said, my joints are hurting all the time. I said, How old are you? I’m 41. She said, It’s like I just woke up and I became stiff overnight. It’s not an unusual story. I don’t think it’s supposed to be this way. After looking and studying deeply in to the impact of foods and nutrition on the aging process, the inflammatory process, I’ve really come to realize, I think that we’re boxing yourself into a lot of issues about 20 years before they shouldn’t be happening. And that really is a lot of joint health pain. Well, there’s about five different categories that I think food and nutrition impacts the occurrence of more and more joint pain. One is, and I’ve been talking a lot about this lately. In fact, I just had a fantastic podcast that will be coming out with Sally Norton on oxalates. What are oxalates oxalates are compounds naturally found in many, many foods that are very crystal in like glass particles. And if we eat too much, or don’t have the ability to detox these crystals, they will form into some part of the body. They can form in hips, knees, eyes, thyroid brain, but generally they tend to be a problem in the joints. I have a YouTube video where I talk about the fact that I truly think that the reason I wore my hips out before I should have in my opinion was because oxalate concentration. It’s because I ate too many of what I thought were healthy foods. I still eat a lot of healthy foods. And we we just have to know which ones have too many oxalates. Well, oxalates had been around and they discovered in in the mid 1850s. So it’s not like something new. But the science is very, very light on this subject. Now we all all urologist know that oxalates can form to form kidney stones. That is the major reason why people have kidney stones, but it forms in the kidney just like it can in the joints. So they don’t realize that and they don’t realize that we only need or can handle about 100 milligrams of boxes a day and one serving as spinach can be hundreds of milligrams, which I ate almost every day. What are the foods that have that because that’s how you get rid of it. Number one is you have to reduce the amount of foods you eat. And so the big ones are the nut butters, I had to give up my peanut butter. sunflower butter has the least amount. So I do eat that sometimes nutritional sells sunflower butter. And then we’re talking about some of the green foods like the spinach I speak about. And then we’ve got beets, we’ve got okra, rhubarb, turnips, olives, not olive oil, and all potato varieties, raspberries that I ate for probably 15 years in a row almost every single night. Eat raspberries, organic raspberries. And that’s pretty heavy duty quinoa is another one. And by reducing these down to very minimal levels, you might feel much better and then all of a sudden you’ll feel worse. Why is that because you’re dumping the oxygen are coming out. There is a product that called oxy guard that has a formula of nutrients that help open the doorway to help you process these further out to make the detox or the elimination process to be much more efficient. So Aqua guard is also a partner in that but you have to cut the foods out. Secondly, we’ve all heard about acidity. What is acidity? Well, actually there’s something called pH and that has to do with how acid or alkaline something is everything broad battery acid being very acid to certain foods and alkaline waters and then in between it’s neutral. If the body is extremely acid, it generally is a sign of probably lessening health. What makes us acid, a lot of stress, not sleeping, pharmaceutical drugs generally not all but most. Those are big ones and then the the two that most people do is carbonated cola beverages and sugar. Those are the most acidic driving molecules that there are so most people are very acidic. That puts you in a position of more pain. And what can we do about that? There’s, you know, there’s alkaline waters, and there’s a lot of different foods that have neutral or alkalinity, they can help. But sometimes you need more than that. Here’s a guy from South Africa who came over here, and he sells something called multi force alkalizing, multi mineral powder. And in other countries, this is very popular, you just do one time in the evening, generally before bed, and that helps to create more alkalinity during your sleep, which then can help you have less aches and pains. I love trying to focus on the pH for helping people to improve their health. Next is where we talk about fatty acids. We all know about omega threes as fish oil, or it can be other types of oil. There’s something called omega six. Omega six is actually it can be found in some healthy foods like flax seeds and a few others. But most Omega sixes are generally going to create more inflammation back 50 or more years ago, or 70, the amount of omega six in a person’s diet was about this much and the amount of omega threes were maybe half that much. Well, today we have 10 times more omega sixes than we do the healthy anti inflammatory omega threes. What are they found in? They’re found in most processed foods, all the seed oils and I talk about seagulls a lot these days. Those are from canola, safflower, all the processed vegetable oils, anything you see vegetable oil is a seed oil. Those have now been indicted as to probably far worse than sugar, probably far worse than any particular part of the food chain and molecules that there are why it damages the mitochondria, which is the energy production is part of the sale which ages is it also we do oxidizes LDL, LDL is part of the cholesterol family. And it’s not really that unhealthy until it becomes basically rancid, that’s oxidized. And these oils will do that in the body. So taking a very high quality Omega three is very important because that kind of displaces the Omega six. And then secondly, knowing to not eat most of those foods that have it fried foods are all totally Omega six. And when we have more inflammatory oils, you’re going to hurt more. It’s just the way it is because they go down a pathway that will produce more inflammation. Next, I really do believe that eating a low protein diet will put us in a position of probably having more discomfort. Why is that? Well, one is, as Dr. Peter A TIA talks about, we need about a half to one gram of protein per pound of body weight, I weigh 176 This morning, I need about 176 grams of protein, I can’t do that with food alone. My favorite protein is right now bluebonnet we get many brands because we’re so particular but this has every label known to man for purity, non GMO, no hormones, no artificial sweeteners, very important to get more protein because the lack of protein will cause basically three things to happen as we age, bone mass will be compromised some muscle strength, which is the strongest correlation to longevity will be decreasing without protein and even cognitive ability. Because the brain needs these amino acids to help produce optimal function within the cell, which then makes us far healthier. And when you compromise your protein, it is not going to be optimal in regard to these things. And then lastly,

glyphosate, which is something that’s causing leaky gut, leaky gut disorder, which is not recognized by traditional medical model will cause aches and pains in the body. WHY and HOW WILL leaky gut is if you think about the plumbing system of the human body. This in its perfect health has such a membrane in it that will allow nothing but the individual molecule of the food once it’s digested to pass through these walls. But when you do so many things like pharmaceuticals, alcohol, pharmaceutical painkillers, those things will create damage that gut lining but one of the bigger damages is glyphosate. That’s roundup that was patented in 1970s. Early as an antibiotic. Well, we now know that it disrupts the intestinal lining and causes it to have these wide holes in it. That is allowing all of these molecules to go through that will have the body attack it as an enemy because it’s not supposed to be floating around wherever a goes. Some people it may go to the thyroid, some people it may go to most of it goes to a joint than the body’s immune system in its a nap. innate wisdom says something’s foreign in here because it is foreign. It’s not supposed to be there. So what do we do? pegging? Painkillers is not the answer even though we may You have to do it to function? The answer is to get to the Why use the green pharmacy. Think about the mechanism of action. And so to do that, you have to say, Okay, if I have leaky gut, well, how do I stop it? Well, one is you kind of figure out well, all foods probably are going to have glyphosate, there’s nothing we can do about it. So I have found a remedy. That’s pretty amazing. It doesn’t cure it, but it makes it manageable. And it’s called gut support ion, it’s a liquid. When you take one teaspoon of this, what happens to the gut within about five minutes is these holes will clamp down, there will be no holes for eight hours. That means is not permanently fixed. But what it means is that when you eat those foods, those molecules that aren’t ready to go through that intestinal lining won’t go through because it now has sealed itself back to a healthy level, within one to three months of this, then you start lessening all these foreign molecules that have found themselves in the joints, and you start having less and less pain and better digestion, and overall health that can be increased significantly because having leaky gut is going to do a bad job on our future health. There’s no doubt. So we can’t run from it. We eat as many organic foods as you can you buy things that say non GMO, in order to have less of it. But doing good ion morning and afternoon can be pretty darn amazing. And you feel better intestinal Lee, just by doing it usually within three days. So talked a lot about how can we put together a plan to create less joint pain and I hope that today you’ve learned that oxalates acidity, too much Omega six, low protein, and glyphosate are the big ones that you’re not going to use the read about or hear about. But it isn’t that hard. You just put together a plan and we’re here to help you. We always want to be your partners on your path to super health, not just to average hills.
