The phone was hung up.
He was the head of a large hospital with 250 patients, and I had no power to change his attitude.
At the hotel where I stayed, I wanted to speak with the owner of the hotel; of course my brain was still working with my wish to do anything in the world and never give up before I had given the proof of my theory, and it was accepted.
I wasn’t able to talk to the hotel owner, because he had a migraine and could not be disturbed. The blinds were down and he was lying down and throwing up and could not see any guests.
I told the owner’s wife that I could help him with his migraines.
She led me to him.
– You have to drink four highball glasses filled with lukewarm water. After that you stick a finger in your throat and throw it all up. Then your migraine is over, I told him.
-Yes, but it was terrible … he couldn’t drink that much …
-You have to drink!
DRINK! I said.
He had to.
He drank the four large highball glasses of lukewarm water. Admittedly it wasn’t the kind of drink he was used to…
But he did it!
After he had thrown it up again, we could talk.
I wanted ten rooms at his hotel, where arthritis patients from Oslo would stay. Patients who had been under specialist care and hadn’t been cured.
This he agreed to.

This page is part of an ongoing translation of the Danish Book: Gigtens gåde er løst (the mystery of arthritis is solved) by Peter Laursen. The book was published in 1989 by the Danish publishing house Hellas, and tells the story of Alma Nissen, who for more than 30 years cured thousands of patients for amongst other things arthritis, psoriasis, asthma, pneumonia, herpes, gallstones and migraines with something as simple as potato soup and garlic, mild exercise, enough sleep and a lot of common sense. Through all those years Alma fought to make doctors put away their prescription pads and realize that drugs against arthritis are worse than the disease itself. The book – Gigtens gåde er løst – tells Alma Nissens story in her own words and gives us the solution, so we can help ourselves, when the medical establishment refuses to.
I think that this is one of those few books that really can have a huge impact on the life and health of the reader, and that’s why I translate it into English, so more people can get access to Alma Nissens wisdom.
