This was a study of 48 patients with mild to severe Arthritis.
The Results: Only two subjects failed to show marked or complete relief of all symptoms of
pain and limited mobility normally associated with arthritis. Both of these non-responding
subjects had suffered prior hepatic problems: one from alcohol abuse resulting in
cirrhosis of the liver; the other, a former professional athlete, presented with
considerable liver damage from steroid abuse. Further studies are necessary to determine
the role of liver function capacity with respect to this protocol. Liver damage resulting
from steroids previously prescribed for arthritis may also prove to be a factor affecting
Two other subjects showed less than a 75% return of articulator mobility. The balance of
all subjects reported 80% to 100% return of articulator mobility as well as a 70% to 100%
decrease of pain. Relief of inflammation frequently resulted in at least partial
correction of some deformities. Informal independent trials at clinics, by individual
medical doctors, and other health practitioners appear to have brought approximately the
