You’d think that ANYTHING that relieves CRIPPLING pain would be APPLAUDED by the mainstream.
But time and time again, history has proven that it’s just the opposite.
Four decades ago, one arthritis expert SHUNNED the mainstream.
When he shifted to natural, time-tested approaches used by desert tribes since THOUSANDS of years ago…
He IMMEDIATELY became a TARGET.
Here’s how his “desert medicine” has been shown to reduce the pain, swelling, and stiffness of arthritis.
Keeper of the flame
There are dozens of species of plants that are considered “yucca.”
Starting from as early as 5,000 years ago, Native Americans in Southern California and Baja, Mexico used one of them — Hesperoyucca whipplei — extensively.
When it flowers, its stalk can grow as tall as 12 feet in 14 days.
And if you’ve ever seen its flame-shaped blossom, you understand why early European settlers called it “Our Lord’s Candle.”
The indigenous tribes made yucca tea out of the “soapy” leaves to relieve joint pain.
They didn’t know WHY it worked…
That its soap-like compounds… known as steroidal saponins… would become precursors to cortisone.
Or that its vitamin C content makes it an antioxidant powerhouse.
They only knew that they felt better… and that their local yucca plant helped them FEEL BETTER… and FREE them from pain.
Modern-day scientists have focused their research more on the species Yucca schidigera, or “Mojave yucca.”
Its use in treating arthritic patients was pioneered in the 1970s by former orthopedic surgeon Dr. Robert Bingham.
He grew weary of HACKING into patients… and NOT improving their conditions…
So, he switched to nutritional approaches and moved his practice from Riverside, California to the renowned “health city” of Desert Hot Springs.
He found his treatments under fire from the ultra-mainstream Arthritis Foundation… which SLANDERED the dietary management of the disease as a MYTH.
When he wouldn’t “play nice”… and criticized the Big Pharma funding of public outreach and education for arthritis… he was BLACKLISTED as negligent and incompetent.
But hindsight is 20/20.
And looking back, it’s clear that Dr. Bingham’s work with yucca was GROUNDBREAKING.
It appears that this desert plant somehow blocks toxins that inhibit normal cartilage formation and cause joint inflammation.
We now know that it has something to do with a unique group of phenolic compounds known as yuccaols.
If you’re ready to get back on your feet, you can find whole yucca plant powder in tablet form and yucca extract supplements.
Look for it also in herbal formulas, alongside other joint supporting nutrients.
