What is the Gold Flex Treatment?
The Gold Flex Therapy is a simple office procedure where a one time low dose ( -5 mg) of small (20-50 um) particles of 99.99% pure elemental gold is implanted by a physician directly into the joint.
Patients have reported immediate relief upon treatment as well as continued relief from arthritic pain following this simple, safe procedure.
The Gold Flex Therapy preserves the therapeutic effectiveness of gold while eliminating the systemic risks of remote organ injury. The tiny amount of pure elemental gold locally implanted within the affected joint is less than the amount than that of patients who are treated weekly with oral doses of Auranofin.
Gold has been used as a highly effective treatment for arthritic pain in the Western world for over 100 years. In fact, the FDA lists gold salts as a registered Disease Modifying Anti-Rheumatoid (DMAR). However, the market had previously moved in another direction.
Through research funded by the International Academy of Metals and Micronutrients, a non profit educational and research organization, Gold Flex Life Sciences has proven that treating specific joints locally preserves the effectiveness of gold while eliminating previously observed systemic affects. By injecting a one-time low dose of particles of pure elemental gold within a gold salt solution directly into the joint capsule, they found that the risk of remote injury is completely avoided. The tiny amount injected is equivalent to a weekly dose of Auraofin taken orally.
The Gold Flex Treatment demonstrates that the local injections of Microgold into or surrounding an arthritic joint, can eliminate joint pain and restore mobility in a simple office visit. Currently the procedure is being administered in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and Aalborg, Denmark, while licensing in the United States in is process.
