Gold rings help arthritus


#1

This is from today’s (Wednesday Aug 27) Calgary Herald
newspaper, page A9:

"Wearing a gold wedding ring can help reduce the pain of
rheumatoid arthritus in the finger on which it is worn, says a
study being published Wednesday.

Doctors in City Hostpital, Birmingham, noted that the finger on
which a 62 year old woman wore her wedding ring was less affected
by the disease than her other fingers.

They then X-rayed the hands of 55 people who had suffered
arthritus for at least two years., 30 of whom wore rings and 25
did not. They found the knuckle joint of ring wearing fingers
were up to three times less badly eroded than the equivalent
joint on the other hand"

Hmm, increased gold ring sales and helping people too? How about
gold bands for other joints? Do you think this is a property of
the alloy gold or a result of the support to the finger?

Actually, if I remember correctly, gold salts have been used to
treat arthritis. Yep, here’s a link about it and at that site is
a link to the Arthritis Foundation to get a brochure with more

A few years back I used to recieve a newsletter from the Gold
Institute Maybe 15 years ago they published news on uses for
gold, one of them described the use of injections of 24k gold
for treating arthritis.

This reminds me of my local health food store =-) The current
"in" thing is Colloidal Silver. It supposedly is a good
antibiotic. Seems people don’t get enough of it especially since
we can afford real silver utensils. I jokingly asked if I could
just use my silver filings and mix it in my juice, but the answer
was a long explanation on how many parts per million and how
small the silver is. Hmmmm…I wonder what metal helps restore a
sense of humor? :wink:

some some irony?

hey kathie! did you ever wonder why baby cups and spoons are
traditionally made out of silver? it’s because silver inhibits
the growth of bacteria! as for what metal helps restore a sense
of humor…hmmm?!? cast iron frying pans seem to work well in the
cartoons…(tom and jerry)

Hi!

Oh, I reckon so ! :wink: LOL!!! Maybe they just need to be annealed
a bit? Either that, or the suggestion of the cast iron frying
pan!

Whatever works!

in the study were the rings yellow gold, and did they
differentiate between karat? If it was done in Europe, were they
higher karat than 10 or 14 which is most common here in states?
Were there differences between width and those which had stones
set in them? Kat

I think that we should all try to be a bit more malleable!
