Diet & guidelines

How soon for  some  noticeable  benefit ?

Most people sense some improvement within the first week. For others it takes ten days or more. Some recover completely in just two days. A few saw almost no improvement until two to four weeks after finishing all their capsules. The difference often depends upon your own healing abilities. CMO™ serves only to halt the arthritic process, your body has to do its own healing -- and healing abilities vary greatly from one person to another. But usually, maximum benefits are derived by the time the capsules are finished. In many cases of limited response, additional doses of CMO™ proved quite beneficial.

So what is the Ideal  CMO course to follow?

Due to many factors like age, severity of the illness or how long the person has suffered with the illness each case is different, and every person will react to the CMO™ course differently, we recommend everybody with a mild case start with a 1 month course of CMO™ (2 bottles) + 1 bottle of Digestive enzymes, for moderate to severe cases  or for someone who has had the illness for over a period of 5 years or is over the age of 50, there is a possibility a second up to a third course may be required (very severe cases), each person is different so we encourage  everyone to start a complete 1 month course. Furthermore for severe cases we  recommend the complete course to include biorutin and glucosamine with chondroitin, all these supplements are found in the shopping cart for your convenience as well as other supplements that work in combination with the CMO™.

Are  there  ways  to  speed  the  regeneration  of  cartilage ?

You can help your body with the regeneration of cartilage by taking Knox gelatin, chicken cartilage, glucosamine with chondroitin, etc. These substances do not reverse the arthritic process, but they do provide an abundance of the basic molecules that are necessary for your body to manufacture new cartilage. It’s best to take them before, during, and after your CMO™ program. Follow the label instructions or consult your nutritionist, doctor, or health food store manager. You could take all of them, but just one type will do. Effects vary greatly between individuals, but glucosamine & chondroitin combinations usually work best. Still, Knox unflavored gelatin does very well. Just mix one packet in some drink (like juice) or in your soup twice a day. Have it with your meals.       

Can  additional  CMO  bring  additional  benefit ?

In some severe cases  a followup course a year or so after finishing the last course may be of great benefit.

Constipation and  diarrhea.

Diarrhea will wash CMO™ out before it can be absorbed. It must be avoided. Constipation can usually be controlled in just a few days with generous portions of juices, salads, and cooked or raw vegetables at every meal. 


Lean meats (esp. beef), fish (esp. sardines, salmon, mackerel, albacore), poultry, eggs. People who eat beef seem to respond better than those who don’t. (Avoid organ meats, duck, goose, shellfish.) Eat asparagus, alfalfa, beets, bokchoy,brussels sprouts,  broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, celery, chard, collards, cucumber, endive, fennel, garlic, leafy greens, green beans, honey, kale, leeks, lettuce, molasses, mushrooms, napa, okra, onion, parsnips, pickles, pumpkin, seaweeds, squash, spinach, turnips, watercress, zucchini, & all fruits, melons, berries, and nuts. Foods in italics are remedial. Keep taking glutathione, omega oils (fish & flax), glucosamine, chondroitin, Knox gelatin, chicken (not shark) cartilage, vitamins (esp. B, D, E, C, & bioflavanoids), EFAs, minerals (esp. magnesium, manganese, and boron) etc. Drink at least eight glasses of water spaced through the day.



Drug  Cautions: 

Methotrexate/Rheumatrex completely blocks and nullifies the benefits of CMO™. If at all possible, these drugs must be discontinued at least one week before starting CMO™. 

   If possible, cortizones and other steroids should be eliminated or reduced to a minimum for at least one week before starting CMO™, or at least gradually reduced as comfort level permits while taking CMO™.

   In diabetics, the normalizing properties of CMO™ may reduce the need for insulin; so careful monitoring is necessary while taking CMO™. 

*Always consult your doctor before altering the dosage of any prescription medication or adding any new protocol.

Dosage:  CMO / 120 capsules

Do not eat for at least one hour before or one hour after taking CMO™. Take  2 capsules before breakfast every morning and 2 capsules at bedtime every night until you finish all the capsules. 

Some people find that avoiding food for an additional hour before and an extra hour or two after taking CMO™ has improved their response time and overall benefits.  

Avoid the prohibited foods, etc, while taking CMO and for two more weeks after finishing all the capsules. Then you may return to your usual eating patterns.

Other supplements that can help with absorption.

When taken with CMO™, bioflavanoids with rutin and digestive enzymes are reported to maximize its intestinal absorption. Taking vitamin B-1 and vitamin D, manganese, and especially magnesium supplements can definitely aid in the internal utilization of CMO™.

1000-2000mg of bioflavanoids with rutin (BIORUTIN) should be taken along with your CMO™ capsules. A daily total of 200mg of vitamin B-1, 400iu of vitamin D, and 5 mg of chelated manganese should be taken with food. 200mg of chelated magnesium should be taken with each of the two daily doses of CMO™.

500-900mg daily of pantothenic acid may ease pain. 

Digestive Enzymes

Look for enzyme products that at least contain lipase, amylase and protase. Additional enzymes are okay, but not necessary. Avoid products that contain hydrochloric acid (HCl) or pancreatin

Dosage: Usually, one 1 enzyme tablet with each dose of CMO™ is sufficient.  

To help rebuild cartilage take things like Knox gelatin, glucosamine with chondroitin, collagens, etc.

Things to avoid completely:

The digestion of certain foods produces substances that clearly impede the beneficial action of CMO™. Avoid these substances while taking CMO™ and for two weeks after taking the final capsules:

Alcohol (most important)  

Chocolate (most important)  

Caffeine (most important) 

Hot Peppers 

Tea (OK to have a cup 2-3 times a week) 

No caffeinated sodas or energy drinks.

Avoid or use only VERY SPARINGLY: ONLY if you see no changes within 2-3 weeks into treatment.

Wheat products like breads, bagels, spaghetti, noodles, pizza, hotcakes, creamed soup, cereal, donuts, cookies, etc. 

  • Corn and all corn products like tortillas, popcorn, dip chips, corn flakes, cornbread, muffins, fritters, etc.
  • Rice, both white & brown, rice cakes, etc.
  • Fatty meats, bacon, Spam, other canned meats, fatty sausages, salami, etc. (Meat, fish, poultry, eggs are okay.)
  • Spicy foods, laxatives, or anything that may cause diarrhea, stomach upset, or bowel disturbances.                                       
  • Fluoride in water and toothpaste.
  • Enemas. Laxatives, natural or other, till finished with CMO
  • Oils, butter, margarine, lard, shortenings, etc.
  • Beans, lentils, peas, garbanzos, other legumes, and all bean products like soy protein, tofu, etc.
  • All cereals and grains (oats, barley, rye, millet, etc). 
  • Milk & milk products, ice cream, yogurt, cheese, etc.
  • Chewing gum.

Special  Notes:

Some persons who have been ill for many years sometimes feel the effects of a “detoxification reaction” which may occur when the body is not able to eliminate large amounts of newly cleansed toxins fast enough. If feelings of nausea or weakness appear, stop taking the capsules until those symptoms are gone. The beneficial effects of CMO™ are cumulative; any temporary interruptions should not affect the final outcome of the therapy. 

   Rarely, a few people with rheumatoid arthritis have felt a short-term temporary worsening of their symptoms for a few days, after which progress usually continues normally. 

   Even though what seems to be full relief may occur early in treatment, it is necessary to take all your capsules to assure the complete, long-lasting benefits of CMO™.
