Please help us... My good friend and neighboor (Conrad,male age 43) has been diagnosed as having "Sclerodema". He is in pain, is loosing the feeling in his hands and shoulders, is tired all the time and is in depression. We are concerned as friends, what can be done? Is there a diet, a cure, a book, a Doctor or even a clinic we should recommend.

Your help will be greatly appriciated. Please, send any suggestions you may have to my e-mail. You may call me on my 800-290-9998 number if you have any suggestions. Conrad and his wife are at their wits end.

Thanks, Jack

Dear Jack,

IF Conrad & his wife are willing to do a lot of learning AND to apply what they finally learn, this is a resolvable problem.

The key is for them to become students (and practitioners) of "wellness". ALL healthcare practitioners (except those practitioners of the conventional medical monopoly) agree what constitutes an effective wellness program. If they think they are willing to do this work, I would be eager to point them in the right direction. If not, both of us are wasting our time. In THAT case, you need to just love him as he is & support them till he dies.

Just because there IS a solution is no reason why he has to do it. There are many people who would sooner die than learn anything new.

In the meantime, he could prove to himself that there are at lest more effective "treatments" than he has been offered by the monopoly. Have them read everything they can find in the library about DMSO. The librarian can help them find the right section.

THEN, I would recommend his applying the 50% gel to one side, 4 times a day (rubbed in sparingly) and watch the difference between the treated & non-treated areas. This is totally safe at least relatively inexpensive. This stuff is available at most healthfood stores and ALL veterinarians.

No risk, extremely effective, does not require a prescription & is inexpensive. Is it any wonder why the conventional medical monopoly is not offering it?

Knowledge will set them free.

As he gets well, I hope he will share his experiences with the bb participants. Others MUST learn that the medical monopoly does not exist for their benefit.

Jack,

If your friend is REALLY sure of the scleroderma diagnosis he needs to read THE NEW ARTHRITIS BREAKTHROUGH by Henry Scammel and Dr. MacPherson Brown. It is a new book but should be on the shelves now at major bookstores.

This book details the use of tetracyclines for various types of rheumatoid diseases. If he was diagnosed with ANY other type of rheumatoid disease (other than scleroderma) I would recommend something else BUT the clinical trials that have been done by Dr. Trentham at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston have been so spectacular that if I had this very serious disease I would try the minocyline therapy first.

Dr. Brown (now deceased) thought that an infectious agent (mycoplasmas) were responsible for all rheumatoid diseases. He felt that minocycline was the most effective way to kill this micro-organism. I believe that time will show that minocycline inhibits metalloproteinase enzymes that break down cartilage as well as collagen while sterilizing the colon of many bacteria that can activate auto-immune type reactions.

Dear Steve,

There is no doubt that this combination is safer & more effective than anything I learned in medical school. A good Naturopath or Chiropractor would know the most about them.

To find a good Naturopath in your area, send $5, for postage & handling, to the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, 2366 Eastlake Avenue East #322, Seattle, WA 98102. They will send you a brochure about Naturopathy and a listing of the good ones in your area.

HOWEVER, having said that, you would be wise to learn how to discover YOUR causes and what to do about them. NO ONE thinks that arthritis is a glucosamine/chondroitin deficiency. At best, it is a safe & effective treatment that will eventually stop working if the causes are not understood & dealt with.

We have discussed these causes, and how you can learn about them, for years right here on this BB. There are several chapters about the causes & methods for dealing with them in my book (link on this page).

When you have that information under your belt, if you still have questions, write again.

Arthritis is not that difficult to resolve but you will never do it with something you TAKE but by something you DO.

Walt
