1. Arthritis is more than an infection, it is a problem of physiology and chemistry.

2. It is a problem of foods, assimilation, and excretion.

3. The skin secretions are found to be abnormally acid in atrophic arthritis, including the infectious group.

4. Recovery from arthritis is dependent on several factors: the removal of infection where possible, the type of food, assimilation and excretion, the general resistance secured by normal physiology and chemistry. This is aided by the normal physiologic use of the body through corrective exercise and better body mechanics.
