Women whose gold threads are found in the body, in the hands and feet in April 2014Rheumatoid arthritisI went to the hospital for treatment of X-rays. She told the doctor, "The problem of joints has been going on for about 50 years since the age of 18," he said that at the age of 48 he was officially diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis. It seems that joints may cause deformation if left untreated rheumatoid arthritis, he said that he continued to go to hospital for this treatment.

According to a woman, he took acupuncture with gold thread to ease joint pain as much as possible while taking ibuprofen from the age of 18 when joints began to experience pain. In acupuncture that women have gone, they are going to insert sterilized gold threads into the skin using a therapeutic needle, this gold thread remains in the body, and an X-ray photograph taken in 2014 So its existence became clear. According to a doctor who summarized the case report, acupuncture treatment using gold thread seems to be a method used for treating joint pain for a long time in East Asia and all over the world.

The radiographs are as follows. There are lines of fine fibers in the joints of the wrists and fingers, this is gold thread.

In this case of women, we can see the characteristic "deformation occurs in joints of limbs" and "gold threads are inserted in almost all of the deformed joints", said as a rheumatologist at Saint Vincent Hospital in South Korea The person who works is pointed out. However, it seems that gold thread does not seem to deteriorate female symptoms, "I do not think that gold thread is related to the onset and progress of rheumatoid arthritis, deterioration of joint pain, and surprisingly, There are few reports of adverse effects on acupuncture using gold threads, "commented on Live Science. In addition, although it seems that women have operated their feet for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, gold threads in the feet are found as they are, and doctors do not remove gold threads as part of treatment It is said that it was not.

The woman's rheumatoid arthritis deteriorated is believed to have been neglected to take anti-rheumatic drugs at the early stage of the disease and to rely on traditional methods such as acupuncture and moxibustion. It seems that women's treatment of rheumatoid arthritis itself is going well.
