This condition rarely exists where infection has been prevented from entering the body. Those who suffer from arthritis invariably carry a point of infection within their bodies other than, the joint area affected. By combating infection wherever it may arise, in teeth (gums), tonsils, bladder, kidneys, sinuses, appendix or others, you are protecting yourself against a future attack of arthritis.
Vitamin C is an important anti-infection substance. Make certain that your diet contains citrus fruits, green or red pepper, berries and other foods high in the Vitamin C. A diet fortified with the Fountain of Youth Cocktail will never be short of Vitamin C. Mild infections can be overcome with nothing more than an increase in Vitamin C consumption where the diet has undersupplied this important substance. By fortifying your diet with substantial amounts of the C Vitamin and maintaining a natural existence (sun, air, earth and water) you can prevent infection rather than have the more difficult task of curing it once the infection has begun.
T. H. suffered from acute arthritis that brought him to a semi-crippled state. His left hand was completely immobile and a similar condition had begun at the hips, causing him to bend at the waist when walking, which could only be accomplished with the use of a cane. The pain made sleep almost impossible and for a year he had been using barbiturate to induce rest at night.
A three-quarter pack was prescribed to be worn for two hours, twice each week. Cold-water rubs were administered each morning with a friction rub of the entire body (the affected area to be rubbed gently to avoid unnecessary pain). Affusions of the knees and the affected area were ordered. The water pressure upon the affected point was determined by the condition of the patient, the rule being to avoid excess pain at all times.
A non-stimulating diet was ordered, accompanied by the Fountain of Youth Cocktail. Warm compresses were applied at night (heating pads wrapped in wet towels). Sun- and air-baths were administered daily, weather permitting.
Three weeks after following the above, T. H. lives without the aid of a cane. The pain had not completely abated, but at no time were sleeping-pills permitted and after the first night, the patient had slept satisfactorily from day 1. At home he remained on the non-stimulating diet (fortified with the Fountain of Youth Cocktail) for two months. During that time, he continued the use of warm compresses each night and cold rubs and friction rubs each morning. At the end of two months, the pain had subsided. T. H. then increased the scope of his diet, continuing the emphasis upon Vitamin C foods. One year after he had begun his new life, observing all the laws of natural existence and providing himself with large amounts of Vitamin G foods, the Fountain of Youth Cocktail and brisk wet and friction rubs, T. H. lost all the painful symptoms of arthritis.
