Rheumatism is a medical term once frequently used to describe disorders associated with many different parts of the body. Most often, people associate rheumatism with arthritis, or with rheumatic fever, a complication of strep throat that can result in damage to the heart. However, the term rheumatism might apply to the symptoms of numerous conditions that can cause pain and/or weakness.

Some conditions that were once given the general label of rheumatism or called rheumatic diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus, fibromyalgia, and tendonitis. Frequently autoimmune disorders, since they remained unnamed but caused pain as well as affecting other organs, were classed as rheumatism.

Illnesses similar to lupus are particularly at risk to being called rheumatism. Later considerate of the actions of these illnesses explain that the problem is not dysfunction of the joints, but rather immune systems that can attack joints, muscles and organs.

    Is peanut butter a healthy diet food?
    I’ve been dieting and exercising lately and I had peanut butter on crackers, now i feel guilty. I hear that peanut butter is a healthy food but how can this be when there is so much fat in it?

    1. Miguel A. Baret, PhD

      There are so many misconceptions and myths regarding fats. They are as necessary as carbohidrates and proteins. Without it you can’t produce hormones, energy, grey matter for brain, and you can’t even think or have your genes repaired inside your cells.

      The problem is how industries handle fats. They refine it, purify it, solidify it, dilute it, enrich it, color it, and all taht using powerful artificial chemicals, detergents some times, and heat. The result is “something” not intended by nature that may result in inflammation, tissues’ induration, cell’s pollution, tumors, cancer, lupus, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, diabetes, etc.

      The key is knowing how to use fats wisely. Nuts are excellent sources of good fat, as long as you don’t eat them roasted, toasted or salted. Besides, whenever you eat nuts, eat a good amount of raw foods to help them get properly metabolized inside your body without stressing your liver and gallbladder.

      Peanut butter, in the way most manufacturers handle it, is very unhealthy. There are some brands very responsible, like “Adam’s 100% Natural Peanut Butter”, made without hydrogeneated oils. Also you may find a good one in Whole Foods supermarket or Raley’s.

      One of the most heard complaints against peanut butter is a fungus that may pose serious health problems to the liver. But I believe that problem has been taken care of by the appropriate health authorities. You can always do more research about it.

      Good luck! 🙂

    would porridge oats with milk be good for my dog?
    Thinking of alternative things to feed my dog over standard dog food i have tried shreddies with milk which he loves but is porridge a good meal for dog?
    I gave my dog oats with water and complete dry dog food mixed in I got the complete dried dog food in a 20kg bag and the dog does not seem to like it! The dog ate it all up though when it was mixed with the oats!

      Firstly you have to consider what is the natural diet for a dog. The dog (Canis familiaris) is descended from selective breeding of the wolf (Canis lupus). Your pet Labrador could mate with a wolf, but not a dingo, fox, etc., which makes the dog very close biologically (and socially) to the wolf. All dogs are by nature hunter – scavengers for their food, by choice they will (and can) kill their prey, but will eat carrion if found. In lean times nuts, berries and fruits will be eaten, but this is a tiny part of their overall diet. This would suggest that the dog is basically a carnivore, but has evolved some ability to take nutrients from non animal sources.

      Although the dog has some (limited) ability to digest and take nutrients from non animal based food, it should not be the main ingredient of their diet. It would be much better to feed your dog the type of food its ancestors still eat, raw meat and bone. A diet that no commercially produced “pet food” can ever approach fulfilling.

      A meal of porridge and milk, (use goats or sheep’s milk rather than cows) could be used as an occasional “treat” if it makes you feel better. But do not make it a staple part of its diet, in the long term it WILL shorten your dogs life. Our closest friends have a short enough life as it is, don’t condense it further with inappropriate feeding.

    Is there anything I can do for the pimples on my Doberman’s chin?
    For all you Doberman owners out there. I am a first time owner and he is the best dog I could have. But the poor thing has pimples on his chin and I don’t know what to do. Can I put a something on it? My husband says pop them, I say no for it may lead to infection. Do petstores have doggie zit cream? LOL He is on a good nutritional, balanced diet. His pet food is Nutro Natural Choice for Larger Breed Dogs. He gets vitamins and the occasional liver snack. What can I do about these zits? Thanks!
    Thanks. Get rid of plastic bowls. But can you elaborate on why Doberman’s can’t have liver? Just wondering cuz vet said it was a good treat for him. Probably stop if that is what is causing acne.
    The liver that I give to him is bought locally here by a Dob breeder I know and bought my Dob from. It is natural liver. She cooks it herself with no persevatives, flavoring, nothing just liver. Secondly the food I feed my dog I believe is fine. I have been told by the breeder, my vet, and folks I know who have dogs it is good for him. Those are not the ingredients listed on the of food I have. I was told corn and corn by products are the worst. Here is the list of ingredients :
    Lamb Meal, Rice Flour, Rice Bran, Rice Gluten, Ground Rice, Dried Plain Beet Pulp, Poultry Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Natural Flavors, Soybean Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Menhaden Fish Oil (source of DHA), Sunflower Oil (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Potassium Chloride, Dried Egg Product, Vitamin E Supplement, Zinc Sulfate, Taurine, Zinc Proteinate, Ferrous Sulfate, Choline Chloride, Ascorbic Acid
    Any takers on why liver (pure) no perservatives, additives, flavoring, just broiled in oven, is not good for my doberman?

    Nutrition and training for a middle-schooler?
    I’m an eighth grader who does X-Country and swimming, I want to find a way to get better at both. Also, since I’m a vegetarian I also would really appreciate some extra nutritional information. Can I have a good internet reference for both sports? I also do a bit of surfing and yoga I love them and some reference for that would be appreciated as well.

    What nutrients do dogs need? Which food is the best?
    I need to buy my dog more food tonight, and I want to switch brands since with the current food she is on, she is NEVER full and is always starving. What nutrients and percentages should I be looking for? Do you have any brand recommendations.
    My dog is a 3.5 year old female puggle, who used to be over weight, but is now at a normal size.

    1. Joh: think outside the bag

      your little puggle is classified as canis lupus familiaris – she is a sub-species of the grey wolf and is a carnivore. The best food for her would be whole prey but many people feed ‘frankenprey’ instead. This means feeding a diet of raw meat/muscle (including heart), raw meaty bones and others organs like kidney and liver.

      Dogs, while they may enjoy some fruit and veg, don’t actually NEED them to be healthy. They don’t have the teeth, jaw structure, saliva or length of gut needed to be able to obtain nutrients from vegetable matter.

      To recover fast from the impact chemo.here is a way out.

      Radio-therapy, Chemo-therapy, Interventional and Surgical procedures are instrumental in prolonging the human life by postponing the death also by a decade or two. I have seen many patients living for decades after Surgery, Mastectomy, Heart/Kidney Transplants, Dialysis, etc.

      * The term iatrogenic is defined as “induced in a patient by a physician’s activity, manner, or therapy. Used especially to pertain to a complication of treatment.”

      But all the patients, undergoing chemotherapy, are worried about iatrogenic diseases/side effects. Here is a way out to minimize scope for severe side effects.

      “U have to take permission from the oncologist and take the following diet[s] with certain restrictions.”

    any one ever had a medical miracle healing or remission of a major disease?
    Do you beilive in medical or miracles that healed the body?

    1. SerbY G

      The human body has many ordinary modes of achieving elimination: the liver, lungs, kidneys, colon, etc. When these are overloaded, the body will resort to “extra ordinary” methods of elimination: boils, mucous and other discharges, sweats, vomiting, diarrhea, and many others. Should elimination be impossible or uneconomical of body energy, the toxic overload will go into storage forms in the joints, vessels, muscles, organs; almost any tissue in the body. While fasting, the body is highly conservative of its energy and resources. During this deep and profound rest, toxin intake and production are reduced to a minimum while autolysins and elimination proceed unchecked. Anabolic processes such as tissue and bone healing also proceed at a maximal rate during the fast.
      In the body, the first stage of cleansing removes large quantities of waste matter and digestive residues. The first few days of a fast can be rough due to the quantity of waste passing into the blood stream. The tongue becomes coated and the breath foul as the body excretes waste through every opening. After the third day of the fast, there is little desire for food. The second stage is the cleansing of mucous, fat, diseased and dying cells, and the more easily removed toxins. As the fast continues, the cleansing process becomes more thorough. The last stage is the cleansing of toxins that have been accumulating in your cellular tissue from birth, and the microscopic tubes that carry vital elements to the brain. Cleansing of the last layer is only possible through a combination of juice fasting, water fasting, and a healthy diet high in raw foods. To overcome a severe disease like cancer, it is important to continue through a series of fasts, to the point where the full scouring action of catabolism removes the disease from the tissue.

      During extended fasts the body removes: dead, dying and diseased cells; unwanted fatty tissue, trans-fatty acids, hardened coating of mucus on the intestinal wall; toxic waste matter in the lymphatic system and bloodstream; toxins in the spleen, liver and kidney; mucus from the lungs and sinuses, imbedded toxins in the cellular fibers and deeper organ tissues; deposits in the microscopic tubes responsible for nourishing brain cells and excess cholesterol.
      During a fast, a metamorphosis occurs. The body undergoes a tearing down and rebuilding of damaged materials. For this reason, fasting is famous for its ability to rejuvenate and give the body a more youthful tone. Why does fasting have such a powerful effect in healing the body? Fasting dissolves diseased cells in a systematic manner, leaving healthy tissue. The result is a thorough cleansing of the tube, membrane and cellular structures. There is a remarkable redistribution of nutrients in the fasting body. It hangs on to precious minerals and vitamins while catabolizing on old tissue, toxins and inferior materials.

      Each cell of your body is a complete living entity with its own metabolism. It needs a constant supply of oxygen and sufficient nourishment. When due to nutritional deficiencies, sluggish metabolism, sedentary life, overeating and consequent poor digestion and assimilation of food, lack of fresh air and sufficient exercise and rest, our cells are deprived… they start to degenerate… the normal process of cell replacement and rebuilding slows down and your body starts to grow old, its resistance to disease will diminish and you become ‘sick’.
      Although fasting is not recommended in every situation, (cancer of the liver is one instance where fasting is contraindicated), in many situations fasting is the only known solution. Fasting has been beneficial for arthritis, asthma, high blood pressure, lupus, chronic fatigue, colitis, Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, spastic colon, irritable bowel, cases of paralysis, neuritis, neuralgia, neuroses, and mental illness as well as many others. Fasting will also break down tumors and for this reason, many have overcome cancer with fasting.

    Has dog’s digestive system changed from being carnivores to eating dry kibble?
    I know many years ago, before we started taming dogs, and breeding them to specific breeds, they used to hunt and eat their prize raw. (wolves and other wild dogs do so still, obviously)

    I wanted to know, since we have hand-made certain breeds, and since they have evolved over the years, hasnt their digestive system also changed?

    Is it still good for dogs to eat raw foods, if they were originally carnivores, but now have changed and evolved to eat dry kibble?

    1. KHAAAAN!

      Dogs have the same gastrointestinal tract as wolves, contrary to popular belief. Both are capable of digesting starches and plant fibers, both are opportunistic and will scavenge non-meat food sources, but both have the saliva, teeth, jaw structure, stomach PH, and intestinal tract of a carnivore. The domestic dog, Canis Lupus Familiaris, has the G.I. tract of a CARNIVORE. They are physiologically identical to wolves.

      Wolves, just like dogs, actually CAN be fed a diet consisting of nothing but dry kibble. MANY captive wolves and hybrids are fed a kibble diet, depending on the rescue it may be something crappy like Purina or a top notch grain free kibble. Some feed raw, some feed a combination of raw and kibble. The FACT is wolves in many zoos, rescues, and homes worldwide are fed dry kibble with absolutely no adverse reactions.

      Many people mistakenly believe dogs have evolved into omnivores because of the things they can eat and digest. This is false. They simply are not obligate carnivores, meaning they are carnivores, but do not require large amounts of taurine in their diet in order to not go blind or die, like cats do.
