I have just had a knee problem diagnosed as being osteo arthritis, would be very interested to hear if anyone has 'cured' osteo arthritis on the raw food lifestyle - I will not be taking any drugs and my lovely doctor understands this - he offered me 2 different types of drugs and a flu jab this morning, all refused thank you - he was totally amazed that I have not even had more than 1 cold in the last 5 years without having those awful jabs. Thanks in anticipation.

I wanted to start here to see if anyone has any information on alcoholism and how to beat it. What is the best way to help someone with this? Is there any supplement or holistic treatment that can help someone trying to get off alcohol? I appreciate your help.

~ Liver & Gallbladder Cleanse ~

Simple but Effective
On a empty stomach drink 3 to 4 Tablespoons of Epsom Salts.
Follow by eating a bite of lemon or drinking a small amount of coconut water to remove the taste out of your mouth.
Go lay down.
2 hours later.
Drink 1/2 up of olive oil followed by eating a bite of lemon or drinking a small amount of coconut water.
Then go lay down and wait for the fun to happen!

Thank you for your answer Erin- that is really interesting about the miscarriages!
I really thought I was dying this morning- it was the worst abdominal pain I have every had plus I would hardly breathe. and the worst part was I was babysitting my 8 month old granddaughter. She sat right there with me in the bathroom- practicing her standing up. I prayed as hard as I could and thank goodness relief came in about 20 mintues.

Hi Deborah~
Alfalfa contains an amino acid called canavanine (which can cause Lupus-like symptoms) and is an abortifacient herb as well. People have been using it since the 14th century to give themselves miscarriages, but had to be careful not get caught doing so, otherwise they'd be charged with witchcraft. Small amounts on a daily basis won't harm you, (and is actually really good for you!) but larger amount, (which it sounds like you digested,) will cause symptoms like you displayed.

Alfalfa sprouts?
This morning I was out of greens so I used about 2 cups of alfalfa sprouts in my morning smootie. It tasted a little bit strong but I went ahead and drank it all down- about an hour and half later- I thought I was dying........... strong painful stomach cramps, cold sweat, turning totally white............ finally about 20 minutes later and ALOT of prayers, it all passed. Someone had just told me that alfalfa sprouts have some kind of toxins and many people consider them unsafe- there is a lot on the internet about it. For sure I consummed too many in a small time- anyone having this kind of reaction to alfalfa sprouts?
