The bone structure of the body allows flexibility and strength. When we clog our joints, we limit our selves and our ability to move.
Foods to avoid to heal the Skeletal System
Avoid foods that can clog the system including refined flours and sugars, hydrogenated oil, cow dairy products, caffeine and chocolate, and artificial ingredients including artificial sweeteners. It is imperative that the digestive system is working properly for the skeletal system to remain clean and healthy (see the section on healing the liver/spleen, gall bladder, bladder and kidneys and stomach).
Herbs and supplements that are beneficial to the Skeletal System
There are many herbs used traditionally to help with inflammation of the joints. Some of these include ginger, turmeric, bromelain, capsicum or cayenne, and stinging nettle. There is a lot of talk lately about Glucosamine Chondroitin as being helpful for joint pain. I find that the liquid formulas will help relieve some of the digestive problems associated with the pill form. And our customers have had great results using Natures Plus Glucosamine Chondroitin w/MSM cream externally.
A high Magnesium to Calcium ration supplement can also be helpful. I find that some people with joint pain may be deficient in one of these supplements. The problem comes from the inability to absorb the nutrients, which essentially comes from an unhealthy digestive system. Therefore, healing the digestive system is essential to healing joint health. Zinc and Potassium can also play a role in healthy joints. Increasing nuts and seeds in the diet can also increase these nutrients. Bitter greens and fresh green herbs can also be helpful.
The tissue salt Ferrum Phosphate helps with inflammatory conditions has proven very helpful in helping to calm inflamed joints.
Flax oil supplements help to lubricate joints.
Physical symptoms of Skeletal Imbalances
Physical symptoms of clogged joints can include pain, swelling and immobility.
Negative emotions that aggravate an Skeletal System
The joints hold the emotion of guilt. Guilt stops us in our tracks from becoming who we are. Thereby, it also stops us in our tracks in the physical body creating the manifestation of immobility in our joints. The flower essence for guilt is Pine.
