There are two main types of arthritis: Osteoarthritis, which in lay terms is due to wear and tear of the joint, and Rheumatoid arthritis which is a form of arthritis where the joints have become inflamed. In general Osteoarthritic pain will respond faster to HealthPoint treatment than rheumatoid arthritis which needs many treatments.
Surprisingly, doctors still do not know what actually causes arthritis - whatever the various schools of thought speculate on as to its cause, the one thing we are sure of is that the real problem is that the normal healing function of the body is no longer doing its job of looking after the repair of the damage being caused by the Arthritis.
What HealthPoint does is to stimulate this healing function to repair the damage caused by the Arthritis on the joint. The first thing that happens is that you will get almost immediate pain relief in many cases. Then with continuing treatment it is possible to get some regeneration of the damaged area.
HealthPoint is treating the damage caused by the Arthritis - the condition itself must be treated with other measures such as nutrition and CMO. However, from a patient's point of view, the fact that many HealthPoint users are now completely free from all symptoms of their arthritis does suggest that the relief given by HealthPoint is very close to a cure. To illustrate the point, check out the following testimonies
"I have had arthritis in the knees for about four years. It was getting progressively worse by the month - I was having to crawl up stairs and I had almost constant pain. Although I was very sceptical of gaining any relief, I tried the HealthPoint and really thought it was a waste of time!
The day after my first treatment with HealthPoint my friend and I went to town. Suddenly my friend exclaimed 'Joan! you just walked up those stairs' - I was amazed at that moment - I had no pain - no stiffness - I could walk up and down stairs!
That was over a year ago and I would recommend the HealthPoint as the most effective arthritis treatment ever devised".
"Thank you for HealthPoint. For years now, I am in my mid-sixties, I have suffered from arthritis of the thumbs to an extent that the pain at times would be such that I would drop the things I was holding. HealthPoint seemed a good idea. Almost immediately I got relief and within days all pain was gone and movement of my thumbs became normal. As far as I am concerned I am cured, although I was advised (by the company) that HealthPoint was not a cure but could provide relief.
My wife remained unconvinced however, and suffered from what I can only call 'creaky knees'. You could hear them when they moved, and she had some pain. One day it was so great that I suggested that she let me try the HealthPoint on her. She was amazed at the almost instant relief that she received and now all 'creaks' have gone and she can walk much easier.
Many thanks for HealthPoint, whose use for a few minutes a day provides us both with great relief". Harry Batchelor, Warwickshire, UK
"I had been on arthritis medication for 17 years abd the doctors told me the next stop was knee relacement. Iused HealthPoint 3 times a day the first week, twice a day the second week and once a day the third week.
Now I'm off the pills and walking normally. Sure, I still use the HealthPoint every day. It has become part of my life, but my knees only get some occasional now and I can do just about anything I want". Ariene, Seattle, USA
"I thought you would like to know how much help the HealthPoint has been with the arthritis in the knuckles of my hands. Since using the HealthPoint I haven't taken any drugs for this problem". W. Maxwell, Yorkshire, UK
Because HealthPoint is very often used for what one could would describe as 'physical' ailments such as arthritis or back-pain, many people seem to forget that it can be extremely effective in treating many other medical conditions.
As you will probably be aware, asthma is reaching epidemic proportions and has become one of the major illnesses effecting people today. Medically speaking, the treatment is basically a cocktail of drugs - most of which have unpleasant (or worse) side-effects.
HealthPoint acts on the body's immune system, enabling the asthma to be tackled 'at source' providing long-term relief without the harmful drugs.
In the UK, Dr Kenyon MD carried out a study on the effects of Electro-acupuncture on asthmatic patients - in particular, the long-term effects of such treatment. The work was centered around the fact that there were several well documented medical trials on the use of acupuncture in athsma with excellent short-term outcomes as measured by Peak Flow Meters, but with poor long-term results. He felt that it would be sensible for treatment to be given on a regular twice-daily basis, by the patients themselves using the electronic unit - something that is prohibitively expensive and inconvenient with traditional methods.
The results showed that two-thirds of the patients were able to significantly reduce their inhaled steroid dose by over half after just one month of treatment. These results were obtained using a pre-production version of HealthPoint - the production version has been shown to produce measurably better results in direct comparisons.
Back pain is one of the greatest causes of chronic pain in the Western World, 80% of people suffer from it in one form or another. It can be totally debilitating - not to mention excruciatingly painful. Thankfully, HealthPoint has proved to be highly effective in treating back problems.
Back pain can be caused in many different ways. However, because the HealthPoint unit simply stimulates the body's own healing system, it is effective over vast range of back-related problems.
This is another very common problem that has many causes; not just those of disease, but also injury - 'whiplash' accidents are a very common occurance on todays roads.
HealthPoint can be highly effective in treating neck problems
The 20th century seems to have spawned several ailments that have not been seen before. Originally labled 'Yuppie Flu', ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) has gradually become more widely researched and accepted as a genuine illness. Unfortunately, conventional methods of treatment are pretty ineffective.
HealthPoint has already established itself at the forefront of treatment regimes for ME. Pioneering work has been caried out at the Pilgrim Trust Hospital in Boston, Lincolnshire, UK, by Dr Derek Parkin. His department have been using HealthPoint for treating ME - along with existing methods - since 1994 and have now established it as the primary treatment for the illness. After the first few months of using HealthPoint, Dr Parkin wrote:
"I have been very impressed by the outcome with these patients, which seems to telescope the effects previously acheived by other therapies such as hypnosis and counselling etc. The major features that the patients comment on are relief of pain, clearing of the head, recall of short term memory, diminution in tinnitus/nausea, but most importantly, return of energy.
I was so excited by the outcome... that I recalled others on my list that would not have normally seen me for another couple of months - and had equally good success".
Dr Parkin's sucesses were also echoed by another medical doctor, Dr Andrew Midgley. He is a doctor who himself suffered ME for 20 years and then personally used HealthPoint to treat his own condition with great success - so much so that he now recommends HealthPoint in his new book "A Life Worth Living". This book details his difficulties over the past 20 years and how he managing to overcome ME with the aid of HealthPoint and other strategies.
Dr Midgely says in his book "HealthPoint...has improved my energy levels and reduced my general tendency to allergic conditions. I use the appropriate points for ME, weariness, depression and insomnia and use it every morning - I can feel it increasing my energy levels. I would certainly recommend that you try it".
This is a problem suffered by thousands of people and, frustratingly, there is usually no apparent reason and so the medical profession tends to take a purely symptomatic approach - providing sleeping tablets - rather than getting to the root cause of the loss of sleep.
HealthPoint tackles the problem directly and can reduce a person's dependence on sleep inducing drugs. There is really very little to add, other than the fact that it works!
For those who suffer from migraines, they can be the most debilitating ailment imaginable - to those who have never had one, they often wonder how a 'headache' can be a problem. Migraines are not 'just a headache'. They can last for many hours and are often accompanied by sensations of flashing lights, nausea and vomiting.
Migraines appear to respond very well to HealthPoint. Not only does it effectively reduce and remove the symptoms of a fully developed migraine, but if used regularly, can prevent them starting in the first place. Faced with the alternative of powerful drugs - which are not always effective - migraine sufferers have found HealthPoint to be the ideal solution.
Hip pain is most commonly caused by arthritis, but can also be caused as a result of a fall. As with all joint problems, HealthPoint can be extremely effective in providing long-term relief. As with other HealthPoint users, those treating the hip seem to be delighted with their results.
There seem to be a vast number of people who suffer from knee problems, Arthritis being the most common cause, but there seem to be many others - including sports injuries. The debilitating effect can be substantial and therefore an effective treatment regime can prove a godsend to those who suffer.
Knees respond extremely well to the HealthPoint unit - very often, noticable results can be obtained after the very first treatment. The long-term results have proved to be excellent.
