Figure 2: Flow chart of analysis on heathy and disease volunteers. Note: For analysis of short-term (5 days) effect of HW bath, six healthy subjects were divided as three controls (regular water bath) and three HW (hydrogen-rich water bath). They were measured for ORAC and CRP. For analysis of medium term (9 days–4 months) effect of HW bath, three diseased females used the HW bath, and were measured CRP. For analysis of long term (4 months–2 years 1 month) effect of HW bath, one diseased male and five diseased females used the HW bath, and were measured CRP. Among them, one female was taken photographs of her hand and one male was taken photographs of his abdomen stoma. CRP: C-reactive protein; HW: hydrogen-rich water; ORAC: oxygen radical absorption capacity.
