Is There a Cure for Arthritis (Aging)?

A very simple remedy that will cure many people's various afflictions, including arthritis and other body deteriorations (aging), is the inexpensive and readily-available guaifenesin (mucous relief), most people take when they have a cold or the flu, which also occurs with arthritis-like pains. Its major effect is that it thins the mucous in the lungs so that one can blow or cough it out

Mucous is the lubricant of the body -- and so like motor oil for the car, the greater viscosity, the better it works to provide lubrication, and functioning in the human body. Drugs that are effective, seem to do one of two things -- either thin the blood, or thin the mucous -- the two fluids of the body.

Throughout literature, the distinguishing characteristic of people as they age, is this thickening of the mucous, which is described as the condition of being phlegmatic, and no longer fluid as they once was. In 2003, I was almost crippled by the back pain that I had about twice a year for several months each time, which alternated with chronic bronchitis (persistent thickening of the mucous in the lungs), but chanced to see an article on the front page of the newspaper announcing that a doctor had "discovered" guaifensin as the cure for fibromyalgia.

I didn't know what fibromyalgia was, but I had noted in the '80s that Robitussin (guaifenesin) seemed to have miraculous curative powers as well as being an energizing tonic when I took it for my frequent bouts of bronchitis, which along with arthritis, were the conditions doctors had warned me I would experience throughout my life -- when they first pronounced I had childhood arthritis and would probably be crippled as an adult -- which seemed to come true in 2003.

Desperate for any answer or clue, I attended the free seminar describing the Guaifenesin
Protocol of Dr. Raymond St.Amand (What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia), and since I had no doubts that guaifenesin had curative powers from my previous use of it 15 years earlier, my major take-away, was his assertion that after extensive use with high dosages over many years, guaifenesin was one of the few things that could be taken with no negative side-effects, but in fact, seemed to have nothing but positive impacts, including curing many of the auto-immune diseases like fibromyalgia.

Just think about it -- a drug with a known and proven effect for liquefying the mucous in the lungs for the congestion brought about by cold and flu, would in probability also thin the mucous throughout the entire body -- and not just target the mucous of the lungs, which effect cures and restores the body to healthy functioning -- as the body was meant to be.

So, walking out of that seminar, I commenced with regular dosages of guaifenesin, and have never again experienced either the condition of crippling back pain, or recurring bronchitis -- which has dramatically altered the prognosis for my existence, especially that pain is not a chronic obsession with me any longer, and one of the first effects I noticed on commencing this regular consumption, was that a nagging knee injury obtained in high school football 35 years ago that never fully recovered and became worse with age, also disappeared permanently at that time.

I've since adopted many other strategies for optimizing health and longevity, which was the natural outgrowth and continuation/actualization of my father's longtime interest and studies as a Tai-chi and Taoist practitioner, but the key to unlocking painfree fluidity of movements and functioning, is clearly traced to that revelation of the simple but miraculous effects of guaifenesin, which I share/suggest to people desperate for relief from their own painful conditions, which like me, nothing seemed to work.

Often, when seeing them a while later, even the memory of their once all-consuming painful existence, will have been forgotten, but they realize, the pain immediately starts to come back, when they miss their dosage of guaifenesin, and so they just get in the habit of taking it regularly, and ensuring they have a constant supply of it. It is incredibly a small price to pay for continued well-being for as long as one desires it -- and I can't think of a time one wouldn't.

Specialized medicine doesn't like the idea that there can be a universal explanation for why cells, tissues, and organs of the body begin to disfunction as some larger general principle for why the human body fails. This certainly would be worth investigating by anybody for whom the remedies offered by their medical practitioner fails to work and they are desperate for something that might, and in my own experience, has been one of the most reliable remedies that does. And since we live in the age of the Internet, it is easy to research that there is an absence of any study that documents any proven negative side-effects, while virtually everyone has experienced the effectiveness of its action if they ever had a cold, flu or bronchial congestion/inflammation.

I recently received an advertisement in the mail for an exotic new product, that replicates what inexpensive and readily available guaifensin does -- at a much higher cost, along with a longer, more elaborate and complicated explanation of the disease process -- and why their simple cure works. That was also the problem I had with following the guaifenesin protocol
and how "studies" were not conclusive in proving that it was effective -- when virtually the entire population, has experienced and can vouch for its effectiveness, in the specific and common relief for colds and flu.

That is inherent in the medical specialist's approach to the study of disease -- by which nothing is related to anything else, when surely, nothing else makes more sense.
