CMO for Psoriatic Arthritis?
from Anne A.

Hi Ed: Has anyone tried CMO (cerasomal-cis-9-cetyl myristoleate) or read the book CMO - Modern Miracle Against Arthritis, by Dr Les Sands? It is reported to have positive effects for other autoimmune diseases other than arthritis.

I am a recent visitor to FlakeHQ and have not yet sifted through all the letters and info to find this out. Keep up the good work! -Anne A. (North Lincolnshire, England)


Ed’s Response: I’d not heard of either the treatment or the book, Anne. I looked up the book by title and author at Amazon.com and struck out. But at WebMD, here’s a piece of what I read about CMO:

Products derived from bovine or other animal sources are being sold at health-food and nutrition stores as cures for arthritis. Cerasomal-cis-9-cetylmyristoleate and cetyl myristoleate (brand names CMO, CM Pure, CMPlus, CM Protocol, Arthro-Balance) are two of these. The FDA, however, has no information about these products as a treatment for arthritis. No recent published scientific studies exist. The National Institutes of Health is not currently working with cerasomal-cis-9-cetylmyristoleate. Beware of such products touted as cures when no FDA approval has been granted. -"Introduction to Alternative Therapies [for Arthritis]" by Earl Brewer, M.D., Kathy Angel

This is just an excerpt from the full article, which you can read in its entirety by clicking on the link. I hope if other FlakeHQ readers have had an experience with CMO they will email us. -Ed
