I wish to comment on the following topics, Rheumatoid Arthritis, inflammation and liver. Rheumatoid Arthritis brings pain to sufferers and is exacerbated by smoking and over medication, taxing the liver. When pain happens, the liver is giving a signal that it can no longer detox the body. The best route is to clean the body from inflammation starting with the liver. I always tell my mom and other seniors to eat whole foods that are anti-inflammatory, cleansing such as yellow , sulfur rich foods (e.g., garlic, onions, lemon grass, citrus, greens, turmeric, ginger and other veggies).
