I know of several people who underwent treatment with gold - and none were

assistant to a professor of Chemistry who was pretty bad with arthritis,
and eventually he suggested gold to his doctor - who had to look the whole
business up in the journals as nobody knew anything about it any more…
He eventually received the properly controlled course of gold injections,
and I even visited him in the rest home where he had them. There was
little or no improvement, and the last I heard of him was that he was
being pushed around in a wheelchair.
I too suffer from that malady, and tried all kinds of ‘cures’ including a
course of acupuncture (I was persuaded and no, it didn’t work at all)
until I had to get a new pair of knees - which work very well, by the way.
But apart from the anti-inflammatories - which work well, but make holes
in your stomach… The best treatment I find is exercises designed by a
properly qualified person who knows exactly what heshe is doing and
prescribing But the trouble is that if you stop or get slack with the
exercises, you quickly go right back to where you began.
I think the best place for gold is with jewellery and with electrical
