Integrating Wellness: Rheum4us Welcomes One Spirit Medicine

A Holistic Approach to Health and Well-being

Rheum4us, a pioneering rheumatic arthritis and nutrition website, is thrilled to announce its acquisition of One Spirit Medicine, a unique platform combining cutting-edge science with ancient shamanic wisdom for optimal wellness. This partnership marks a groundbreaking step in our commitment to holistic health, encompassing mental, nutritional, and whole-body well-being.

Why Unite Rheum4us and One Spirit Medicine?

Blending Modern Science with Ancient Wisdom
At the core of this acquisition is our shared belief in the power of integrating modern scientific knowledge with traditional healing practices. Rheum4us's expertise in rheumatic arthritis and nutrition, combined with One Spirit Medicine's holistic approach, creates a comprehensive wellness resource.

Advancing Nutritional Science and Shamanic Practices

The Role of Kale Juice in Coronary Artery Disease
One key area of collaboration will be exploring how natural remedies, like kale juice, can positively impact chronic conditions such as coronary artery disease, a concern for many with rheumatic arthritis. Studies, including those published in The Lancet, have highlighted the benefits of plant-based diets in managing heart health.

The Gut-Brain Connection

Both Rheum4us and One Spirit Medicine recognize the critical role of the gut microbiome in overall health. Research, including the 2008 study cited in Neurology, has shown that gut health is intrinsically linked to brain function, impacting everything from mental well-being to disease prevention.

Ancient Ways to Ultimate Wellness


Today our minds, our emotions, our relationships, and our bodies are out of kilter. We know it, but we tend to ignore it until something brings us up short—a worrying diagnosis, a broken relationship, the death of a loved one, or simply an inability to function harmoniously in everyday life. When things are a little bad, we read a self-help book or go to a workshop. When they’re really bad, we bring in experts to fix the problem—oncologists to address cancer, neurologists to repair the brain, psychologists to help us find peace and understand our family of origin. But this fragmented approach to health is merely a stopgap. To truly heal, we need to return to the original recipe for wellness discovered by shamans—traditional healers—millennia ago: One Spirit Medicine.

Unlike modern medicine, which recognizes thousands of ailments and myriad remedies, One Spirit Medicine identifies one ailment and one cure. The ailment is alienation from our feelings, from our bodies, from the Earth, and from Spirit. The cure, One Spirit Medicine, is the experience of primeval Oneness, which restores inner harmony and facilitates recovery from all maladies, regardless of origin.

Drawing on more than 25 years of experience as a medical anthropologist and training in the shamanic tradition—as well as his own journey back from the edge of death—acclaimed healer and teacher Alberto Villoldo introduces us to this powerful practice, based on healing methods that our Paleolithic ancestors knew 50,000 years ago and supported by the latest breakthroughs in neuroscience. We learn how to detoxify the brain and gut with superfoods and supplements; discover ways to switch off the “death clocks” in our cells; explore techniques for working with our luminous energy fields to repair our bodies and our brains; and follow the ancient teachings of the medicine wheel to shed disempowering stories from the past and pave the way for rebirth.

Using the principles and practices in this book, Dr. Villoldo promises, you can feel better in a few days, begin to clear your mind and heal your brain in a week, and in six weeks be on your way to effectively “growing a new body”—one that mends rapidly, ages gracefully, and keeps you connected to Spirit, to the earth, and to a renewed sense of purpose in your life.

Our Combined Mission

Addressing Gut Microbiome Issues
Gut Microbial Adaptation and Diet: Understanding how diet influences gut microbiome is vital. We'll delve into how specific foods and supplements, like sulforaphane-rich vegetables, can foster a healthier gut, thereby improving overall health and potentially alleviating symptoms of rheumatic arthritis.

Enhancing Mind-Body Wellness
Hacking the Human Biofield: One Spirit Medicine brings a wealth of knowledge in understanding and harnessing the human biofield for healing. This approach aligns with Rheum4us's focus on a comprehensive, mind-body strategy for managing rheumatic conditions.

Research-Driven Insights
Utilizing Omega-3 Fatty Acids: An exciting area of collaborative research will be examining the role of Omega-3 fatty acids in normalizing BDNF (Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor) levels, a critical aspect of brain health. This study of Japanese men in Hawaii provides a foundation for exploring how these nutrients can benefit those with rheumatic arthritis.
