Twelve cases of chronic rheumatism have been treated on a raw vegetable diet for periods of two weeks, followed by a modified diet for further periods.
No other method of treatment has been used during the period of observation.
Pain has been relieved in ten cases and those cases in which there were muscular pain and stiffness with simple effusions into the joints have benefited most.
Cinematograph records of the progress have been made.
The immediate results obtained appear to be due to the low sodium content of the diet; other factors have not been excluded.
