One of Alma Nissens former patients, Helena Johansson from Sjuntorp in Sweden, writes about staying at Brandal and about the time after she returned home: (paraphrased):
After a pregnancy and a subsequent flu I got arthritis that got worse and worse for each day. In the end my husband had to help me get dressed, comb my hair and so on.
Going up and down stairs for example was impossible. When I arrived at Brandal Alma Nissen said: Sit down and I will take away the pain. She started to massage my ears and the pain from the arthritis disappeared. What a relief.
I started fasting. Ate garlic and drank potato water.
3 days later I felt so good, I could go for a long walk. I could also go up and down stairs.
After I had fasted for 14 days, I got even better and now I’m completely healed, but still I fast twice a year. No one can see that I’ve been so sick with a disease such as rheumatism.
My physician thinks it’s great that I’ve become so healthy after being on the diet.
What Alma has done for me is almost impossible to describe. I am so happy for her help and for the support she’s given me, even after I went home from Brandal.
Alma Nissen is a great human being.
It’s good that there is someone who understands the work she does for all of us who are sick.
Good luck with the book.

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.
