Remedy Description

Source: "Ask the Doctor", Dr Peter Gott, newspaper column, August 12, 2006

Bar of soap aids former Marine

Dear Dr. Gott: As a mud Ma-

rine in World War II, I had

my gluteus maximus blown

away, femur broken, etc. I was

told I would be in a wheelchair

by the time I was 40 years old

after being in a body cast for

nine months. I'm close to 84.1

do 100 push-ups, swim, weight

lift, etc., but my left hip is

painful. I have no joint. It all

calcified from immobilization

for nine months in the hospital.

But the good news is, by

sleeping with a bar of soap on

the gluteus-rnaximus muscle,

90 percent of the pain I experi-

enced upon awakening in the

morning has left. No clinical

reason. But I play golf, walk

with a cane and lead a normal,

active life. I fly a plane and am

able to use the left rudder de-

spite a 3-inch shortening of my

left leg. My reason for writing

is, please tell people me soap

treatment does help arthritis

sufferers. A friend has arthritis

in his left hand. I told him of

the "soap" treatment. He put a

cake of soap in a glove and

wore it to bed. It has helped

him a great amount - no

cure, but a real help.

Dear Reader: Thank you for

suggesting yet another use for

the soap treatment. Your story

is intriguing. You may achieve

better results from rubbing

castor oil into the affected areaj

Many arthritis sufferers swear

by this treatment, which is

safe, easy and inexpensive.
