This blog provides the latest news on the search for a rheumatoid arthritis cure.

By: Dr. Virgil Stenberg

Webster’s dictionary defines a cure as restoration of life, a more practical definition than a one time intervention that eliminates a disease.

From a secret WWII project, brilliant Dr. Lewis Sarrett of Merck and Company made the first pure cortisol, gave it to Mayo Clinic’s world renowned Dr. Philip Hench who used it for treating rheumatoid arthritis. The results were so phenomenal that he received the Nobel Prize two years later.

Then cortisol’s haunting side effects all but killed the solution. Cortisol was restricted to injections for temporary relief to avoid its side effects.

To this day, no man-made medicine can match the power cortisol has over rheumatoid arthritis.

Dr. Virgil Stenberg, then Chester Fritz Distinguished Professor at the University of North Dakota now of the Helen Foundation, solved the Hench’s side effect problem simply by having patients take cortisol in new way, Microdose Therapy.

The latest score card for rheumatoid arthritis cures is indeed exciting:

  • Noncortisol anti-inflammatory drugs average 25% relief
  • Cox II inhibitors average 25% relief with less kidney damage
  • Methotrexate averages 40% relief
  • Biologics average 8 to 60% dependent on dosage
  • Microdose Therapy averages 78%.

Microdose Therapy is built upon:

  • when the body can’t produce extra cortisol under stress, rheumatoid arthritis evolves.
  • when cortisol is taken to replace missing cortisol, most if not all rheumatoid arthritis symptoms disappear within weeks
  • teaching patients when to take, how much to take and for what reasons to take cortisol to replace the missing cortisol. When used in this way, patients use so little that its haunting side effects become insignificant.

Microdose Therapy is supported by:

  • the FDA recommending the Microdose Therapy plan for cortisol use
  • the FDA recommending cortisol use for cortisol-responding diseases and disorders.

Comforting facts are:

  • cortisol is the principal hormone made by the adrenal glands
  • cortisol is bioidentical, i.e., perfectly identical, to the body’s cortisol
  • cortisol does not accumulate in the body
  • cortisol is eliminated in the urine within 7 hours after ingestion
  • death threatens if cortisol is not present in the blood at all times

Dr. Stenberg created Microdose Therapy while at the University of Dakota to solve his wife Helen’s refractory rheumatoid arthritis. Helen has been pain-free with no significant side effects since 1984 using Microdose Therapy.

The Helen Foundation was created in 2000 to encourage physicians and patients to use Microdose Therapy because cortisol is generic.
