|Ailments: all forms of arthritis including osteo arth-, rheumatoid arth-, psoriatic
arth-, gout etc
Ingredients: Ngali Nut Oil in Sorbolene Cream
Directions: Apply twice daily. As condition improves, reduce application to when necessary, usually once or twice weekly.
Comments: trials have shown Arthrileaf Cream to be beneficial for all types of arthritis. Although applied as a topical cream to the skin, the active ingredient from the Ngali Nut Oil is absorbed through the skin, so that although the cream is applied only to the hands, after a week or two other painful joints such as knees, shoulders etc begin to improve. It also has residual effect, in that if use is ceased abruptly, it takes several weeks before any pain returns.
|Available in: 25 g, 50 g, & 100 g glass screw top jars.|
It has been known since time began that the best way to deal with arthritis is to exercise. The problem is - it's bloody agony. That's the beauty of The Apothecary's Arthrileaf Cream - it reduces the excruciating pain usually associated with exercising arthritic joints, and because it is in the form of an externally applied cream, there are none of the side effects usually associated with internal anti-inflammatorys.
relief from the pain & discomfort of arthritis** while helping to save South
Pacific rain forests.
nuts are native to the Solomon Islands, where they grow in great profusion in
the rain forests. Until recently the local villagers were welcoming Asian
logging companies to come and destroy their local rain forests in order to earn
some cash for the village. Conservation International based in Washington D.C.
is trying to reverse this trend by demonstrating to island villagers that they
can earn equally good income from the native trees growing in the jungles
surrounding their villages. The Apothecary has been working for years on
researching the anti arthritic properties of Ngali nut oil, and today we now
have The Apothecary, Conservation International & S.I.D.T. (Solomon Island
Development Trust) all working together to convince S.I. village elders that it
is in their best interests to preserve & protect their rain forest, in order
to harvest the Ngali nuts from it. Currently, all nuts gathered for this current
project comes from Makira, Eastern Province of S.I., but as word spreads it is
hoped that other provinces will want to become involved. If successful, this
should see the eventual end of all logging activities in the Solomons.
has been claimed many times that the world's rain forests should be protected
because there is so much potential for discovery of new medicines in the
yet-to-be-explored species, and this is the perfect example of how mankind can
benefit from unique rain forest products.
nuts have been known for many years in the Solomon Islands, and have formed an
important part of the local diet for hundreds of years. However no-one had
realised until recently that arthritis was not
a problem there. (it is very difficult to recognise the absence of something).
the late Peter Hull - The Apothecary - owned & ran The Pharmacy in Honiara (the S.I.
1981 to 1985, & during his time there noticed that arthritis was virtually nonexistent
among the local population. Thinking that this was possibly due to diet, it was
apparent that one big difference in the local diet was the Ngali nut, a local
native tree that in season produces large amount of nuts, which are not found
anywhere else (PNG & Vanuatu do have different varieties, known as galip & nangai nuts). Delicious
whether eaten raw or roasted, during the nut season they are found at every
roadside market throughout the Solomons. Peter's first step was to test the
Ngali nuts on himself, & greatly encouraged by the results began wider tests
on different people suffering various types of pain & discomfort The more
tests were done, the more it confirmed the original idea - that Ngali nut oil
has beneficial effects on arthritis. Exciting discoveries from early trials
showed that Arthrileaf Cream had
systemic effect - by applying to hands twice daily, after about a week, painful
joints elsewhere such as knees & hips etc. improved, &
residual effect, so sudden cessation of the cream didn't see the sudden return
of pain, which took up to a month to return.
course, as part of the Solomon Islands diet for hundreds of years, & the oil
being used for domestic cooking, there has never been a problem regarding safety
of the nut or oil for human consumption
is important to understand that arthritis sufferers using ARTHRILEAF Cream for
the first time should not change any existing medication or treatment they are

**The use of Ngali nut oil to relieve the pain & discomfort of arthritis & similar conditions is now patent approved in USA, Australia and South Africa. Other countries to follow.
