Characteristics: Swollen, painful joints which are often distorted. There are several types of arthritis. Can affect hips, knees, fingers etc.

Mrs A. suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis in her hands and knees and Osteo-Arthritis in her hips and back. At times, her knees would be so hot, swollen and painful that walking was extremely difficult. Her fingers were beginning to look deformed.

The ‘Health Detective’ Screening System showed an imbalance in digestive enzymes and hydrochloric acid (needed to digest and absorb food properly) deficiency in Vitamin C, Acidophilus (good bacteria) and essential fatty acids (anti-inflammatory). Also there were food sensitivities to wheat, dairy, citrus, potatoes, tomatoes, alcohol and caffeine and many of the major food groups.

Mrs A. was put on a simple, plain diet for 3 months and given nutritional supplements. Changing the diet and helping the body to absorb nutrients is the first step to be taken in an attempt to return to health.

Normally the Screenings are carried out in stages in order to monitor the progress and identify any other imbalances that may be contributing to the main issue.
Mrs A. returned for another Screening which picked up parasite frequencies. Homeopathic and herbal remedies were given accordingly and at this time Mrs A. reported a 50% improvement in mobility in the joints.

The Programme was continued for 3 more months; clearing parasites, improving digestion and bowel health. One issue picked up by the ‘Health Detective’ Screening System, was liver imbalances and subsequently Mrs A embarked upon a one week ‘Liver Flush’ and a course of Colonic Hydrotherapy. 8 months later Mrs. A. is virtually symptom-free. She has also made some much needed changes to her lifestyle (changing her job) and continues, by choice, to follow a more balanced, nutritional diet.
