Shares

barbara-allen-bio-picBarbara Allan is the author of book called Conquering Arthritis and the person behind her website with the same name.

She has a pretty incredible story of being in a wheel chair at 25 years old and today she’s strong and living live with no symptoms of arthritis. She suffered from reactive arthritis which apparently is different from rheumatoid arthritis or osteo arthritis.

We talked a lot about leaky gut syndrome and how that correlates to inflammation and arthritis in the joints of the body. I suspect that all digestive issues (like crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis etc) can be tied to arthritis.

She said during the show that there is nothing more anti inflammatory than simply doing some fasting. Barbara recommends doing juice fasting for the alkalinity, minerals and balancing properties of the juice vs doing water fasting.

We also talked about some healing supplements people can take to help heal their gut. Some of the usual ones are mastic gum, l-glutamine, glucosamine, slippery elm bark, marshmallow root and others. These can be very soothing to the gut but the one caveat is to make sure you completely understand every ingredient that’s in these pills.

Sometimes there can be excipients and binders that you could react to. So before you guy buying these it’s important to find out everything you could be reacting to.

In that vein, Barbara is a big fan of the Alcat blood test which tests hundreds of foods, chemicals and toxins (even mold). This really helps to nail down and find out what your body is reacting to!

During the show she mentioned some of the common foods people have allergic reactions to. Here are the obvious culprits:

  • Corn
  • Wheat
  • Dairy
  • Soy
  • Sugar

She also mentioned a big part of her healing was the emotional and energetic work she’s been doing. I suspect that all disease and illness stems from our inability to properly deal with emotions, stress, trauma and turmoil in our lives.

I believe all of these things play a major role in our inability to heal at the quantum level. After the show Kate and I were talking about how it would be nice to do an energetic cleanse.

If we store and remember every thought, emotion and experience we’ve ever had, then what’s that doing to our organs, glands and tissues of our bodies? Being able to properly diffuse these toxic engrams as Atom Bergstrom talks about, is the first step to truly healing at the deepest of levels.

She uses a special meditation called vipassana buddhist mindful meditation that helped her heal. For others it could be simply prayer and being quiet. For each person it’s going to be different.

We hope you enjoyed our interview with Barbara Allan as much as we did and if you did would you consider clicking “like” and “share” on this page to let your friends and family know about the work he is doing?

Kate and I would greatly appreciate that! ๐Ÿ™‚

Guest Info:

At age 25 Barbara Allan became one of the over 9.1 million people in the United States with an autoimmune-type arthritis. Her arthritis was triggered by a bout of bacterial dysentery caused by eating food tainted with a bacterium called Shigella. She was on vacation at the time.

Reactive arthritis was the name given to her condition. In many respects, it is very similar to rheumatoid arthritis. In fact, she eventually got well using methods proven to work for rheumatoid arthritis.

The onset of her arthritis was about 6 weeks after the dysentery. The arthritis came on very suddenly and left her in chronic, overwhelming pain that often made it difficult to walk even a few steps without passing out. Sometimes the pain was so bad that she was incapable of rational thought, or any thought at all. Sometimes her hands hurt so much she couldn’t even hold silverware well enough to feed herself. For years she lived with the loss of many things that she had valued highly: her health, her mobility and to a some extent the use of her mind. She lost friendships, status, the ability to continue as a graduate student, and the ability to hold a regular job. Read more >>
