Sarcoidosis Arthritis


More than a century after its first description in medical literature, sarcoidosis (sahr-koi-DOE-sis) largely remains a medical mystery.

It can cause inflammation in many areas of your body, but often has few or no symptoms. It affects thousands of people worldwide each year, but its cause remains elusive. And while it can be fatal in rare instances, sarcoidosis often goes into remission without medication.

Immune system reaction?

Sarcoidosis occurs in all races. Because the disease is more common in certain regions of the world, estimates of its prevalence vary widely, from 11 to 640 cases per 100,000 people. In the United States, the disease occurs more frequently in blacks and in people of Scandinavian descent.

Sarcoidosis can cause accumulations of inflammatory cells, called granulomas, nearly everywhere in your body. It can involve your skin, eyes, liver, spleen, bones, salivary glands, heart and central nervous system. But in 90 percent of cases, sarcoidosis involves your lungs.

Researchers suspect the disease may involve an immune system reaction to something you breathed or came into contact with. While they haven't been able to pinpoint a cause, researchers have examined and dismissed several possibilities, including pine pollen and bacteria that cause tuberculosis. Sarcoidosis is not contagious.

CMO is reported by customers to be a supportive nutritional supplement.

Below are four testimonials from customers who decided to see if CMO+ ( which some believe helps to alter a faulty immune system) would give them any help. Understand that these statements are anecdotal reports from happy customers. No scientific clinical studies have ever been done on the effects of CMO+ when taken by sarcoidosis patients. CMO+ is a nutritional supplement that is known to support the natural ability of joints to move freely and easily.

Hi Marge!
I wasn't sure the CMO would work for Steve, but it did! He has given me permission to write you his testimonial.

In October of 2000, my boyfriend Steve Wiecki (from Thermopolis, WY) was given the temporary diagnosis of Sarcoidosis. He was given anti-inflammatory drugs and pain medication, and was told to return in about 5 weeks for a check-up, and to return sooner if symptoms got worse. Well, he gradually showed a decline in his health and eventually, in December had to return. At that time, he was referred to a Pulmonologist. He met with the doctor and found out that he had to have a biopsy done. There was concern about if it was cancer, or indeed Sarcoidosis. Well, the biopsy went well and it was determined that he did have Sarcoidosis. At the time, it was affecting his lymph nodes and breathing. He had lost 20 lbs., had difficulty eating, swallowing, and his overall health was declining. He used to lift weights and was very physically fit and in a matter of months felt tired, was weak, and felt very ill.

When he was in the hospital for the biopsy, I began doing more research on alternative methods to treat Sarcoidosis. The information that I had read on steroids was troubling and I just didn't want him to have to go through that. I discovered your web-page on CMO+ and I felt like it was an answered prayer! Steve was not only struggling with his health, but having no medical insurance through where he works, he was paying for all medical expenses himself. He felt terrible, and he was discouraged and depressed regarding his circumstances. I printed the information from your web-page and discussed it with him. After awhile, we decided that it would be something worth trying. His attitude was that it couldn't hurt and that if it didn't work, he would just have to take the steroids.

Well...after day 3 of taking the CMO+, he started feeling better. He could breathe again without pain! He continued for the entire 10 days and I am sooooo happy to report that he feels great! He is eating again, he can swallow, he can breathe, he has no chest pain, etc. All of his symptoms are gone! I am praying that the results are lasting, but if they aren't, we know where to go to get more! Thank you for your has been a blessing! I have given your product information to several people that have arthritis and Crohn's that I know and I am encouraging them to try it. Steve is a walking testimonial and all that know him have seen the incredible results.

Thank You Again-
Wendy Thronburg, Worland, WY

Hello Marge,

In September of '00 I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis. This diagnosis was finally achieved after a year's worth of terrible symptoms & many, many tests. This mysterious disease can attack the body in so many different ways and from everything I learned during this ordeal, the medical community has only scratched the surface in understanding this illness. The current trends are to treat the disease with drugs such as Prednisone or Methatrexate and I, personally, was too worried about the side effects of those drugs to go that route. I don't want to discourage others from taking those drugs but I wanted to explore other options for myself before I made that decision.

While on the internet I happened upon your site. I was very skeptical but intrigued by your information and I decided that I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. I am glad that I overcame my skepticism and ordered the product. I noticed an improvement in my symptoms within 3-4 weeks after starting the product. One of the major problems I had was a grossly enlarged spleen, 4-5 times normal size. I noticed a reduction in the size of my spleen and when I commented about this to my doctor he did an examination and was surprised at the difference. It is still enlarged but seems to be shrinking daily.

I had experienced extreme, debilitating fatigue during the course of the illness and my appetite was severely depressed. I had lost 40 pounds in about 4 months time. I've noticed a terrific increase in my energy levels and my appetite has returned. I've gained back about 10 pounds and have starting participating again in the sports that I missed so much.

I would like to mention that the doctors have told me that about 70% of patients with Sarcoidosis go into remission at some point. That may be the case with me, but I personally believe that the CMO played a major part in my recovery. This is the first time I have ever felt strongly enough about any product to give a testimonial but I have been extremely pleased and thankful for the experience that I had with your product

Best Regards,
Mark Howell

Dear Marge,

This morn i took my last dose of husband asked me the other morning, "How do you feel?" and I said, "Good!" He said he couldn't remember the last time i had said that! Last week was my "3-day" teaching week and usually I am a wet noodle on Thursday from teaching 3 days in a row...but this Thursday I enjoyed putting Christmas decorations up! I still have been trying to take it easy, although my every impulse is to dive back into 'normal' life. I have some stiffness in my ankles in the morning, still, but since that was the first place i ever felt pain, perhaps that will be the last to go. I have taken 1 motrin over the past ten days...I used to take 3 every 4-6 hours! But I could have lived with the pain...the thing that was the hardest for me was the extreme fatigue that literally took me out of life.

I must admit, I am still in a tentative, waiting sort of posture...I just want to see that I really am healing, rather than in body-self attack mode.

I am so thankful for Elizabeth writing to me in the first place, and for God leading me here to you and CMO, which I see as a direct answer to many prayers. You both have been like angels to me. Well...time alone will tell. I cont. to hope it will prove what I believe has been a healing. Let the repair cont.!

Subject: Re: Sarcoidosis update - July, 1999

Dear Marge,
Just wanted to email you and let you know that David is still fine. You recall I wrote you when he recovered from that horrible sarcoidosis in December of last year. Well, it has been seven months now, and he is still at 100 percent fine. We have told so many people about this wonderful product, CMO+! Many have tried the product based on actually SEEING the wonderful recovery from what was a near-death situation! I still have trouble understanding that he only took the CMO+ for ten days and on the eleventh day, he felt about 80 percent recovered. Within the next few days, he was out roller-blading with the kids! I ordered another bottle of CMO+ for him, but he has never needed to take it. So we are keeping it on hand if any of us should ever have a similar disorder (as insurance!.) Just wanted to give you an update, Marge!

Thanks again,
Elizabeth Rawlins, Pensacola, Fl
