"Kecepak" plant - a cure for athritis and general body pain?

A "kecepak" plant
A month or so ago I had posted this picture in my facebook. A friend, Chang Yi mentioned this kecepak plant is good for the digestive system. Just boil the whole plant - roots and all and drink the juice twice or thrice a day. But be warned. The juice is very bitter. I decided to try it out as I have ample supply of this plant at my backyard. I love the ripen fruits - a passion I had as a kid in the long house. I uprooted a plant, cleaned and boiled it well. I managed to make a bottle of the juice which could last me about 4/5 days (2 cups a day). I couldn't see any effect it had on my digestive system but my nagging athritis and body aches disappeared within the hour! I was surprised. Was it due to the kecepak juice? I decided to experiment. I stopped taking the juice for about 2 weeks. After a couple of days my athritis pain came back. I waited for the pain to become unbearable before boiling another plant and started taking the juice again. Again, the pain disappeared within the hour. Could any one out there try this out and let's compare notes?
