chrysotherapy (s) (noun), chrysotherapies (pl)
Treatment of a disease by the administration of gold salts; also, aurotherapy: The application of gold compounds to medicine is called chrysotherapy and "aurotherapy."

Chrysotherapy is primarily used to reduce inflammation and to slow disease progression in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

The use of injected gold salts for chrysotherapy is rare now because of numerous side effects, the need for continual patient monitoring, limited capacity to produce the results desired, and the slow beginning of any healing.

The efficacy of orally administered gold is even more limited than injectable gold compounds during chrysotherapy.
