46 Million in the U.S. Have Arthritis

by Carolyn Dean MD ND

(The Best Years in Life) Here is a wonderful testimonial from a blog reader.

“My 73-year old friend, Grace, who has arthritis, was diagnosed with trigger finger and she was given a cortisone shot but it only lasted 4 weeks. The arthritis gives her excruciating pain and she can’t use her hands till the afternoon and her hands are so swollen that she can’t even see between her fingers. So I introduced her to ReMag and so far she is sleeping much better. I told her to give it time cause it has been only 3 weeks. Then I told her about ReMyte. She received the ReMyte on Friday and started taking it and called me today, which is 2 days later and told me her pain and swelling subsided quite a bit and for the first time in a long while she can open and close her fingers. I’m so exited for her. The doctors said they could only help her with cortisone shots or surgery and she held off on the surgery because they couldn’t guarantee it would work.”

According to, arthritis affects more than 46 million people resulting in disability for 19 million. Arthritis causes more disability than heart disease, diabetes, and back or spine problems. Osteoarthritis (prevalence ~26.9 million), gout (prevalence ~6.1 million), rheumatoid arthritis (prevalence ~1.3 million) in the US.

I scanned the medical sites and it’s true, they only offer arthritic patients pain killers, anti-inflammatories, cortisone shots or surgery, all of which deplete magnesium and more minerals. There is no medical “cure.” What if one of the causes of arthritis is a mineral deficiency but doctors, who know nothing about recommending minerals will never be able to help their patients.

Berkey Water

There are many people like Grace who take ReMag and ReMyte (and ReAline) and their “arthritis” improves. Why is that?

Minerals do their best work inside cells. They pull water in after them to assist in thousands of metabolic processes. If you are deficient in minerals, water has nowhere to go and ends up in tissue spaces causing painful swelling. If you are deficient in minerals you will also have more auto-immune disease, more inflammation, more pain and more swelling.

The following minerals, that help prevent and treat arthritis, are included in ReMyte: Magnesium, Boron, Calcium, Zinc, Manganese, Copper. Sulfur, which is found in my ReAline is also important. Sulfur promotes the health of ligaments, cartilage, collagen and tendons; it can be accessed in ReAline through the two sulfur amino acids, dl-methionine and l-taurine.
