Six-Month Results of the CHI Institute Neuropathy Study
In our Fall 2002 Newsletter, we reported on the two-month progress of the individuals participating in this study. At
that time, 3 of the original 20 had dropped out of the study group and, at the six-month point, another 3 had dropped out. In
the remaining group of 14 participants, only 9 had continued to use the Infratonic
therapy protocol as outlined. Of the 5
participants who indicated they had departed from the protocol, one reported at six-months that he never even used the machine
during the last four months, another was being treated for another disease and could not use the Infratonic
regularly, and others
just chose not to follow the protocol or to curtail the amount of use. It is interesting to observe that those with the more severe
symptoms, as reflected by the Pre-Treatment measurements, were less likely to drop out of the study or to modify the treatment
protocol – perhaps indicating that their quality of life had been so greatly affected already that the possibility of finding relief
was a powerful motivator for them.
It would be impractical to consider the results of those who chose to alter the protocol in the same statistical grouping
as those who continued to rigorously adhere to the treatment plan, so we have presented their results separately. It is not unexpected that the progress made by these two distinctly separate groups is markedly and predictably different.
While those participants that continued to use Infratonic
therapy regularly, following the protocol, continued to improve in
every category (the rise in Ulceration from the Pre-Treatment measurement to the Two-Month measurement was caused by oneindividual developing a secondary site); those participants who either discontinued use or altered the protocol during the studysaw their condition continue to deteriorate, often beyond the Pre-Treatment measurement levels.
It is important to note that the physicians examining the participants noted a decrease in pain from the Pre-Treatment
measurement to the Two-Month measurement and those who continued the protocol saw the pain drop further, while those who
discontinued or curtailed their therapy did not. More importantly, for those who chose to abandon or curtail
there was an increase in nearly every other category – more disability, more discoloration and more ulceration
. Levels of
neuropathy and vascular disease either stayed the same or increased.
We have learned two valuable lessons at this point in the study. First, the continued use of Infratonic
steady progress for the participants. Diabetic neuropathy is a long term, degenerative disease whose symptoms normallycontinue to worsen, and to slow that downward spiral is a remarkable accomplishment; but to see an improvement, even a slowand steady one, provides tremendous hope for the many who suffer daily. The second lesson is just as significant – this is acommitment to improvement in the quality of one’s life that requires a continuity of care. It is vitally important that the therapycontinue regularly, as the potential for relief is dependent upon it.
