Osteoarthrosis (Degenerative Joint Disease)

Gold implantation for humans and animals — an overview:
its application and how it works

The method of gold implantation was first used successfully by the American Terry Durkes in the mid-1980s. The veterinarian Dr. Jens Klitsgaard introduced it in Denmark in 1988 and in 1993 he passed this therapy on to the German veterinarian Ralf Schweda, known to the public through his TV programs. Back in 1996, three Danish doctors began to use gold implantation on their human patients. More than 8,000 people have already received an implant.

European and Japanese studies in the area of human medicine clearly show the strong compatibility of gold with the joints.  In this case, too, we can see the physical elements that humans and animals have in common:1

1.  Gold implantation, among others, is used for the treatment of patients with osteoarthrosis, for:

  • knee
  • hips
  • pains in the neck
  • small joints
  • in the spine
  • and the like

2.  The use of gold therapy has an influence on the entire musculoskeletal system:

     Gold implants

  • have an anti-inflammatory effect
  • prevent pain
  • guard against an abnormal, protective posture adopted to minimize pain and discomfort
  • relieve the entire musculoskeletal system.

3.  Gold implantation has positive effects on the patient’s well-being:

  • No side-effects are known.
  • No additional specific pain is felt after an operation.
  • In general, the patients can soon move about again.
  • Taking pain relievers can normally cease or be greatly reduced.
  • The implanted gold reduces infections in the tissues.
  • In the best possible case, gold therapy results in complete loss of pain.
  • Ensuing rehab measures are generally unnecessary.
  • Additional therapeutic measures are not the rule.
  • All doctors can perform the therapy after having been instructed in it. As in every medical discipline the success of a therapy depends, in the final analysis, on the skills of the doctor.

4.  Gold implantation on humans

  • It takes place under local anesthetic.
  • A special hollow needle is used to inject thin gold plates, small gold beads or pieces of gold wire into the tissue around the damaged joint.
  • The gold must be pure 24-carat fine gold. The gold particles injected are 1 — 2 mm in size.
  • Apart from the injection, the operation is painless.
  • Depending on the severity of the syndromes, the pain decreases and/or desists quite rapidly. In the case of long-standing problems in might take a little longer before the patient is free of pain.
  • The gold implantation remains effective, in general, for 10 to 15 years.
  • Risks and side-effects are not known to date. As with every operation, even using gold implants, the possibility of faulty applications and procedures cannot be excluded.
  • Osteoarthrosis can be eliminated neither by conventional therapy nor by gold therapy. However, gold therapy, without taking medication, results in clearly better mobility.

An uncomplicated therapy


In Germany many years of experience with dogs and horses have shown that, in the most cases, after a gold implant these animals could move about again without pain as soon as they awoke from the anesthetic – and for the rest of their lives.

If several joints are affected, these can also be treated with gold implants. Even in very difficult cases the prospects for humans and animals of living without pain are excellent!

Using gold therapy places medical doctors, especially orthopedic specialists and orthopedic clinics, in the position to offer their patients an additional, fully uncomplicated therapy. Proficiency in acupuncture is not required.

Both for younger and older patients as well as for high-risk patients a gold implantation can be of great advantage. For the younger ones an operation might possibly be postponed for decades or even become fully superfluous. For older and high-risk patients it may be that under certain circumstances a difficult operation can be avoided. Should it later turn out that an operation on the joint does have to be carried out, an earlier gold implantation will present no obstacle.

Each patient has his or her own particular fate

Statisticians operate only with naked figures, which do not express the pain, despair and often the sense of there being no hope hidden behind the cold figures.

For this reason our appeal to all doctors in question:
Help us! Give your patients a medical alternative – one that has proved successful thousands of times over, on both humans and animals! Use your influence to obtain the necessary primary data. Get your local colleagues and public health authorities involved so that this method will be approved by the state medical authorities.

There are no losers. Only winners!

In veterinary medicine, gold implantation has been used in standard medicine since 1993. In Denmark, it was first used successfully on human patients in 1996. In Germany, too, there are doctors who make use of this therapy. So this should be very encouraging for the scientific studies that are still required.
