3. Your welcome

Ankylosing is a genetic based disease - HLA B27. My Great Grandfather had the same disease. He immigrated from Marseille France to the US at the close of WWI with his disease at 20. I do nothing differently than he did in 1920. His mother brought him from total hunchback - feeding him nothing but by todays standards - "organic veggies". clean fis, and lots of leek broth.

I've found that green tea actually causes hip (sacroilac joint pain). But ginger tea - no problems. Analgesic effect. Fish oil - I get right through my fish intake.

Overall - we want to avoid pills and potions and get right down to solid foods directly from the earth. Having a husband who is an immigrant from Italy and spending time especially with his mother over there, and his aunts, cousins - they still eat VERY different than we do in America in Acri, Italy. And let me tell you - those 70 and change little old ladies are totally schooling me up and down the hill in back of their homes . . . to get the wild berries and fresh spring water. It's like a 45 degree angle at a half a mile's distance.
