Sheeesh. You guys are pushing a bit here. These people are not my gurus, nor do I imagine them to be magical wizards with special potions peddling the next best snake oil. I only mentioned the same people multiple times because if one is to read through their works, "via doing their own research", there will be a common theme as to what they've found to be the most cleansing and healing diet in all their years of practice.

If the people who decided to jump to conclusions and ridicule my posts had any experience in specifically what I was sharing I could understand the reason to create a positive dialouge in what they've discovered through their own experience. But instead I got the opposite.....it was implied that I didn't know what I was talking about and that it's unsafe. And if those people who decided to ridicule, had any experience in it they sure chose not to share that experience before ridiculing.

Eating cleansing and healing foods does amazing things. Things, that to many, would feel to be, "miraculous", and after being around this for years it just becomes the norm. So if you were standing in my shoes you would understand why I feel as if it's important to stand up to this ridicule.

I also can't understand how you, DimSum, can say they're out to make a fast buck. LOL

So I guess bring on the next wave of ridicule without any actual experience in what I've been trying to share. I can understand constructive dialogue, but flat out ridicule without sharing any experience to back it up....

Truth passes through three stages. First it is ridiculed. Second it is violently opposed. Third it is accepted as self evident.

Okay, starting to get anxious....surgery MONDAY! Had my last preop appointment yesterday. If all goes well, surgery Mon am, walking Mon afternoon, home Tues after physical therapy. My dr anticipates an excellent outcome given my general health and "youth". I am getting one of those ice machine thingys....they will use it at the hospital and it comes home with me. Wish me luck!

You're in my thoughts, friend! <3

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

May I ask what are you having done to your knee? the reason I am asking is that I have had both knees replaced and still ride although I admit I am much more cautious now then I used to be, but I refuse to let anyone tell me I should not ride. In any case, if you need anyone to talk to please feel free to contact me. I know that all will come out well for you. Praying for a quick recovery for you and many more years of enjoyment of your horses.

You'll be up and about in no time. My Surgeon elected to piece my knee back together and I'm now 12 weeks post-surgery. PT is wonderful, I started that 2 weeks ago (had to wait for the bone graft to heal) and I've gone from completely non-mobile to walking around a bit.

Oddly enough, the PT I was assigned is a horse person. She swears she'll have me back on a horse for Christmas!

There is a very high potential for you to rebuild your knee from the inside out without the need for replacement if you so wished. It will take time to accomplish and some dedication, but it would also halt and reverse the arthritis.

It's so simple that many people will try to discredit it without having any experience with it. But if having healed knees without recurring surgery and knee replacements is something that you desire, then may I suggest you do some research of your own into the subject.

Studying the works of Arnold Ehret, Dr. Robert Morse, and Dr. Douglas Graham will provide the necessary knowledge to get you started. These three are all very similar in what they suggest. IME, following what they teach will bring about the quickest and deepest form of healing. Something that heals even deeper would be, to water fast, but considering the things commonly found on the food shelves I would highly suggest leaving this alone for a while until you've done a lot of cleansing and healing already. There are also different things you could do which would help, such as avoiding certain foods, but if you start doing the research you will find them.
If it's an ACL, it won't heal itself, they don't and no one has had one that has done so. Of course eating well and losing weight will help, in fact the surgeon who did my ACL will not operate on an overweight person. He says it undoes his work, it's like throwing someone a 50lb sack of flour and say pack that around while your grafts heal. He has many angry former patients because of this but I tend to agree with him. I have always been fit, trim and eat extremely healthy, but it didn't heal my torn ACL, the surgery did and after my own program of physiotherapy, 5 months after my surgery, I was back into full on kickboxing workouts. So for the recovery, yes I will agree, however, nothing I ate would have healed my ACL, it needed to be grafted.

I am not here to promote anythingNo, that's not true, I am here to promote everything equestrian and everyone enjoying horses!
