Michael’s Solution

Painful Legs

Painful Legs, Microbiome, Leaky Gut, Diabetes, Cancer – Starter Solution.

The Physical Aspect

I neutralized my acidic blood, eliminated inflammation in my blood, healed my leaky gut, changed my microbiome, built up my immune, endocrine, autonomic nervous, and lymph systems solving my painful legs, knees, bones, joints, and feet. I share my story so we can walk-free together.

I discuss each of the actions I take in more detail in my weekly emails – it’s far too much detail for this summary, subscribe on my website: michaelplumstead.com and download my free eBook “Grow Yourself to Health” and get my weekly emails.

I have found that this solution will alkalize the blood, decrease inflammation in the blood, lowers blood glucose, eliminates blood toxins, repairs a leaky gut, optimizes nutrient absorption, feeds the endocannabinoid system, builds the immune system, balances the microbiome. Your health depends on building good bacteria which in turn will ensure good enzymes are all over the body – the solution follows.

Organic food diversity makes microbiome stronger. Personalize your diet according to how you feel a few hours after eating any food. One size does not fit all. Eat a variety of what you perceive to be healthy foods on a daily basis and avoid the “do not eat” foods.

To heal painful legs, bones, joints, and feet, do not eat:

  • Wheat, regardless, ever, never – I’m not talking about gluten – not any form of wheat while you are healing of any disease or health problem concerning painful legs and joints. Remember, refined foods, and food additives are toxic to the microbiome gut especially when you are fighting painful legs and joints.
  • Vegetables high in lectins – read my blog for more details.
  • Fruit juice is just as dangerous as soda.
  • Tap water.
  • All grains unless sprouted or fermented.
  • Soy products – unless fermented.
  • All sugar and all sweeteners – Stevia is OK.
  • All farmed fish including Atlantic Salmon.
  • Microwave Popcorn products.
  • Factory-Farmed Meat – use only free-range fresh meats.
  • Processed meats.
  • Processed vegetable oils like Canola and Sunflower.
  • White table salt unless it includes iodine and is sea salt.
  • Fat-free and low-fat milk.
  • Corn syrup.
  • Foods high in additives – all foods with added sugar especially sauces.
  • Processed foods like pizzas, cake mixes, fast foods, takeaways, etc.

To start the process of achieving pain-free legs, knees, ankles, joints, bones, and feet, you must begin the process of embarking on the Pain-Free Legs Solution by downloading my eBook: “How to Grow Yourself to Health” – an important starting point to understand the “Solution” that follows.

This solution is not a diet. It is what to include and exclude in your own daily intake.

Include Every day:

Step One.

Drink a glass of room temperature structured water with fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar on waking in the morning before going for a brisk walk. I squeeze the lemon juice a week in advance and keep it in the fridge. Missing the odd day is not a train-crash.

Step Two.

Eat or drink about three tablespoons of stewed red-skinned apples without their pips but with their skin and as much cinnamon as is tasty, every day between meals or at night time before retiring. I make this a week in advance and keep it refrigerated if I run out, I substituent it with a fresh apple. But an apple a day is essential.

Step Three.

Ensure you get pre and probiotic foods into your stomach. Eating fermented foods is a MUST every day. Diversity is the key to total health in this category. Sauerkraut is compulsory to be consumed before meals. Pickled onions, pickled fish, kombucha, full-fat yoghurt with probiotics and without added sugar, pickled cucumbers and every other one you see, buy it, eat it.  Add a variety of microgreens and your microbiome will reward you hands down, your immune system will love you, and your painful joints will start healing.

 Step Four.

Consume bone broth either by itself as a soup, or on any of your main meals. It contains glucosamine, which is one of the building blocks of cartilage. It contains chondroitin, which helps draw water and nutrients into the cartilage, keeping it spongy and healthy. It also includes hyaluronic acid, which is one of the chief components of connective tissue, forming a gelatinous matrix that surrounds cells. Relieves joint pain by keeping bones well lubricated.

The three acids reduce bone, joint and muscle pain, and start the repairing process. Bone broth is essential to take every day until you are dancing on your Pain-Free Legs.

Step Five.

Grow Sprouts, Microgreens and essential veggies in pots inside your home. Home-Grown microgreens and sprouts pack a major punch when it comes to vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll, protein, antioxidants, than their full-sized counterparts. Organically, soil-grown microgreens have 20 times more concentrated nutrients than the fully-grown plant. Substantially more significant health benefits than raw fruits and vegetables. I now grow veggies in pots on my veranda, sprout seeds in the kitchen and grow microgreen in my sunny laundry. Our gut also needs diversity in the variety of microgreens eaten. Remember to avoid the vegetables high in lectins unless eaten as a microgreen.

Growing certain vegetables in pots on my balcony helps me with butyrate and fulvic acid, which are power foundations in building the Microbiome and Endocannabinoid systems which in turn repair the painful legs and joints.

Step Six.

The daily eating of “resistant starch”. Resistant starch is a non-digestible prebiotic starch.  Resistant starch forms when certain foods are boiled and left to cool; good examples are potatoes and rice, but could also include pasta, chickpeas, beans, peas, and lentils. When these foods cool in the fridge, the starch crystallizes making them resistant to digestion and therefore, reaching the large intestine intact. 

Eat a serving every day with any other food is essential in the solution. It goes through your stomach and small intestine undigested, eventually reaching your colon where it feeds your friendly, alien, gut bacteria in your intestine which is only 10% human. Whereas most foods feed just 10% of your cells, fermentable fibres and resistant starches feed the other 90%. Resistant starch feeds the friendly bacteria in your intestine, having a positive effect on the type of bacteria as well as their number. It also balances the pH and calms blood inflammation.

 Step Seven

Drink structured water throughout the day. This is not filtered or bottled water of any description. If you put tap water underneath a microscope, the water molecules look deformed.  This is called dead water. It is like stagnant water, not healthy to drink. To shape those water atoms properly, you need movement, or magnets, or frequency or crystals., or a stream running down a mountain. Water Properly Structured Inside the human body Is the Life Force within, and it grows exponentially.  Structured water is essential “Super hydration” – it Increases oxygen in the water, which in turn increases the absorption of nutrients which in turn takes away the pain in the legs, joints and feet. If you cannot organise structured water, then use the healthiest filtered water you can lay your hands on.

 Step Eight.

Eat organic root vegetables. Eat one different root vegetable per day, for example, beets, sweet potatoes, potatoes, carrots, etc. Each plant produces different good bacteria – diversity is critical. Look for different colours of veggies. Use vegetables to replace grain while you are healing from any leg or joint ailment. You can also grow these in pots.

Step Nine.

Eat hemp seeds and use the oil. The most important food to eat to heal painful legs and joints. At least two tablespoons of seed per day. Sprinkle over any food or spoon directly into your mouth. Chia and flaxseed are possible, but an inferior replacement for hemp in this solution so rather avoid them.

Step Ten.

When you eat, is just as important as what you eat. Intermittent fasting is essential to this eating plan. Allow at least 18 hours of non-eating overnight and only eat for 8 hours during the day. This includes NO SNACKING between your two to three meals during the day.

I take supplements when I need specific ingredients, I am taking a joint formula that contains MSM, chondroitin, glucosamine, boron, zinc, vit c, copper and manganese. I intend to continue taking this powder for a few years to build up my joints. I assume in different countries there will be different brand names so Google “joint Pain” and some of the ingredients. The brand I use is made in New Zealand and is called Nutralife.


Fulvic acid and glycans are the keys to unlock and bring together all the above ten steps. I needed my body to absorb the correct balance of major minerals, trace minerals, fats, vitamins and proteins in the form of the essential amino acids. There was a missing link until I discovered fulvic acid. Again Google it for a local brand name. This can be taken for a few months if you are eating the foods suggested in this article.

I found it with and glycans and 30 other essential nutrients in one natural capsule. It is a non-GMO, nutritional powerhouse consisting of Fulvic acid from the rainforests – 13 plant extracts, 13 other organic elements, and glycans comprising preferred forms of mannose harvested from Aloe Vera. Glycans which can be found on the exterior of each of the cells in your body facilitate faster, better, and complete cell-to-cell communication. Think of Glycans as high-performance conductors that transmit and receive messages to and from other cells, helping your cells get what they need from the above ten steps so that you can be at your healthiest.
