In another study Zurier doubled the dosage of GLA, giving fifty-six patients either 2.8 grams daily of the supplement or placebos for six months. This higher dosage resulted in significant improvements-at least a 25 percent improvement in four of eight measures of rheumatoid arthritis severity. For a second six-month period, Zurier gave GLA to all of the patients, and improvements were noted across the board. The group originally given GLA continued to improve over the course of a year, with more than three-fourths of the patients benefiting from improvements in their arthritis symptoms.
Physicians and biomedical researchers are starting to appreciate the significance of the Inflammation Syndrome-how many different inflammatory diseases are interrelated.

Arnica is not suitable for internal use as it can be quite toxic, unless it is in a homeopathic form. For the same reason you should not apply it to open wounds and cuts, as too much arnica can then be absorbed into the bloodstream. However, applying the ointment well away from the cut is acceptable: keep a 2-3cm gap between the margin of the cut and the cream application, and apply arnica in a thinner layer than you would to unbroken skin, where it can be applied quite liberally. There is little point in applying arnica to injuries that are more than one day old arnica is very much a first-aid item that must be applied as soon as possible after the injury to prevent local haemorrhage and swelling.
On the advice of her doctor, Denise ate a high-carbohydrate meal in the evening.
