04/07/2013: Courtney from Granite Bay, Ca: "You have nothing at all to lose by trying it. It certainly won't hurt you and it just may help. The poison you're taking now isn't helping, so what down-side is there to trying honey a few times a day? Exactly. There is none. Go..."

10/02/2011: Bmw, Atlanta, Ga from Atlanta, Us: "For the past 6 months I've had throbbing knee pain, especially when I lay down to sleep at night. I had heard about C_____, or fruit pectin (used to make jellies and jams) can be purchased in any supermarket, stopped one individual from having a knee operation. I've been taking one tablespoon mixed with any fruit drink (you can mix it with anything really) at night and it seems to be working!! Certainly worth a try, especially since I know I don't have much fruit in my diet. Will keep you posted."
[SIDE EFFECTS] 09/02/2011: Sara from Sacramento, Ca, Sacramento: "Yesterday, I bought a "Heat Wrap" for my mom who is 76 years old. This Heat Wraps is for powerful pain relief and deep muscle relaxation. She is pretty much healthy, but she suffers from Arthritis on her back and both knees. As soon as she put the wrap on her back the heat wrap started getting warm, and she could not stand it for more than 45 minutes. She had to remove the wrap, and she felt a burning sensation on her the bases of her both feet. Now, she suffers from a great amount of pain and she does not have any energy at all. I called to take her to her doctor, but he is on leave till next week. What do you think is the problem and what natural remedy will be helpful in her case?"Replies
09/02/2011: Debbie from Melbourne, Australia replies: "Sara has your mom tired apple cider vinegar for her arthritis. If you look at the arthritis remedies page on this website many people have cured their arthritis by drinking ACV with honey and bicarb of soda.
Also for the deep muscle pain, magnesium oil rubbed in the area should help with that or magnesium chloride in bath water or even epson salts would help, although magnesium chloride is better and longer lasting."
09/06/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "A short term remedy to help the pain is castor oil with DMSO. That means one part castor oil and one part DMSO, for simplicity. Applied to her leg it will relieve pain in minutes, if not then she needs allopurinol 100 mg x 3 times a day. A long term treatment is needed, but we'll discuss later. The energy is required CoQ10 300 mg to have any effect.
02/14/2011: Chris from London: "Hi thanks so much for all the info you've researched and shared its making what I think is a big difference as a someone only recently diagnosed with RA.
My query is I am taking along with probiotics vit k2 vit d3 and borax with magnesium tablets as well. The magnesium supplement is a mag calcium complex with the ingredients as mag. As oxide citrate. Is this right as I am worried that taking calcium as bottle label suggests is interfering with the healing process.
Many thanks Chris "
12/30/2008: EJ from Middleboro, MA, USA: "Arthritis in cats: My 12 year old Domestic short hair cat has been developing arthritis in her front elbows for the past few years. I don't want to give her any prescription or aspirin for pain, knowing what the side effects are. I'm looking for a natural alternative. I'm giving her some Glucosomine and Chondroitin treats daily. Some days she is better than others. I was reading on the internet about a product called synflex for pets and wonder if anyone has used this and what the results were. She eats Wellness brand canned food and has for years. She's not overweight (10 lbs), is indoor all day and has no stairs to contend with. She's still jumping up and down from the bed and playing periodically. I'm trying to keep her healthy and pain free. Any suggestions would be great. thanks!"Replies
11/07/2009: Alice from Shingle Springs, Ca, U.S.A. replies: "If you have a juicer, juice cruciferous family veggies like broccoli, kale, cabbage, and mix that with canned cat food. You can add fish oil and nettle powder and even safflower blossoms (health food store) turmeric and garlic oil as these all inhibit the inflammation. Pigs feet broth is also helpful for it's chondroitins which nourish joint cartiledge. Fixed my dog's arthritis in 2-3 weeks."
11/08/2009: Pahlee from Phila, Pa replies: "In response 2 Alice frm shingle springs, I take it that the remedy that u posted is 4 animals, am i not right, the cat food threw me off."
EC: Oops! Yes, they should have been posted in the Pets section, sorry!
03/17/2012: Mel from Calgary, Ab, Canada: "I have only checked out a few things in the last few days but so far I love it. I am a 50 yr old male and have really bad knees and arthritis all over the place. I have tried a few different things but the one that has worked the best is the candied ginger. I went and bought some and had a few pcs while I did stuff in the kitchen and had forgotten about it and noticed about 2 hrs later my knees did not hurt at all. I am also using the ACV and honey and will try oil pulling in the morning. So far very happy with everything. Thanks to everyone that has given these home remedies. Mel"
[YEA] 03/20/2007: Sunny from Fullerton, CA: "I am of Korean descent, and for as long as I can remember, my grandparents and my mother have been using ginger for a few different ailments. Recently, I noticed with the cold weather, the flu bug was going around and I have had some pain and swelling in my wrists and finger joints. I made tea by boiling one ginger root, sliced and diced, in some water, added some fresh lemon juice and the peel (how it was done forever in my household) and added honey into my cup. it isn't a cure for a cold, but it certainly helps to relieve symptoms. i took the warm ginger remains out of the pot and mashed it up and applied it topically to my wrists and fingers. the pain is substantially alleviated. if you can handle the smell, it is worth a try. this is not a cure for arthritis, but a natural and very healthy way of relieving pain. there is also a link to show studies done by the U of Maryland on ginger and what ailments it helps with. hope this helps. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/ConsHerbs/Gingerch.html"
[YEA] 03/20/2007: Katherine from Los Angeles, USA: "Arthritis Remedy: Ginger Root/Mint tea. I have found that making tea out of ginger root and mint is more helpful than any capsules. Take about a 1 1/2 inch piece of fresh ginger root, peel and then slice root into mug, add some fresh mint leaves, pour good boiling water over and steep at least 1/2 hour (the longer the better) drink before you retire for the night. This not only helps with the joint pain but has also helped me sleep more sound. The mint is important as it helps the stomach - ginger root tea alone can be a bit difficult if one is no longer 20 . This is an acquired taste. DO NOT get carried away like I did the first week and drink more than one huge mug a night. As my Chinese Dr. friend said "it is like listerine for the body". Cleans out the toxins and it is a natural anti inflammatory."
[YEA] 11/15/2006: Suzanne from London: "I have suffered from very bad arthritis for some years and also osteoporosis of the spine. I used to dread winters even though I was prescribed anti-inflamatory pills and painkilers by my doctor. I recently discovered ginger root (I found a newspaper article about ginger that I had put away some years ago) and have been taking it for about 3 weeks now in capsule form from the health food shop. The stiffness has gone from my joints and spine and most of the pain which is gradually disappearing. In fact, the other day I realised that I didn't have any pain or stiffness at all. It is such a great remedy that I am recommending it to everybody I know who has arthritis."Replies
01/18/2007: Suzanne replies: "I recently sent you feedback about ginger. I have been taking it in capsule form daily now for approximately 2 months. It seems to act as a pain-killer. The relief I get is tremendous and most of the time i am completely pain-free from Arthritis and Osteoporosis of the spine. I recommended it to a friend in the US."
Ginger and Turmeric
05/15/2013: Vikram Hosamane from Mumbai, Maharashtra: "Ginger & Turmeric Supplements help Arthirtis."
Glucosamine and Chondroitin
[YEA] Dr. Kandarjian from Chiropractor: "Glucosamine and Chondroitin capsules have done me and my patients lots of good."
Glyconutrients, Omega 3
[YEA] 07/21/2011: Smart Choice from Patensie, South Africa: "I had arthritis in my fingers, painful, red, swollen. I started taking glyconutrients and a very pure Omega 3 twice a day and within two weeks I was pain free up until now. I started using these products May 2010 and my whole life changed for the better. Hot flushes gone, skin like a baby, no more flu and just feeling vibrantly healthy everyday. Will never go without it."
Golden Grapes Soaked in Gin
[YEA] 07/06/2011: Lorik24 from Newcastle, Va: "Hi, I hope this remedy is posted, even though it requires Gin (alcohol). I have researched this and recently tried it myself.
Soak a cup or more of yellow/golden/white raisins in about 1/2 cup of Gin. Make sure it's not the least expensive gin, or the most expensive. It is suppose to have something to do with the Juniper berries used to make the gin. Anyway you soak the raisin in a tightly covered container for at least a week. Then you take 9 a day, 3 in the morning, 3 mid day, 3 in the evening.
I have been bothered by arthritis pain not only in my right knee, but had tennis elbow or tendonitis in my left elbow. Also since my arthritis was very painful, I began walking strangely. After seeing my own MD then a sports medicine specialist, who wanted to 'inject' the site. I went to my holistic acupuncturist. After his treatment my knee felt much better, but my calf muscles began to hurt tremendously. My good friend and massage therapist said she thought it might be a ripped/torn calf muscle. It felt like a very tight charlie horse anytime weight was put on it.
My boss had been telling me about the gin soaked raisins, but I never bought the ingredients to make it up. After this July 4th holiday weekend, she brought me in a cured bottle. After just 2 days of 9 raisins, both my calf and elbow feel so much better. I will continue to use what she gave me and then replenish as necessary.
I do hope this gets posted. It works!
Thanks so much for this site.. Because of ACV I have not been sick in almost 3 years, or had a headache in the same time frame. Thanks to all!!
[YEA] 04/18/2006: Kitty from Bransonm MO: "golden grapes soaked in cheap gin for nine days, then nine grapes per day, everyday. Considerable help for my arthritis. Go figure???? Heard from two others who swear by this."Replies
[YEA] 02/10/2009: Danielle from Hernando, Florida replies: "I have tried this recipe. When taken regulary it seems to be very helpful. There's several of my friends who find it helpful too.
I also recently lost 25 pounds, with the help of Raw apple cider vinger. I use it for a daily detox, antiseptic for scratchs, minor burns, mostly to help alakalize my body. Most americans have more acid in akaline in there systems.I take about a shot a day. I can really tell when I am not faithful, and eat poorly."
[YEA] 07/02/2010: Surfer143 from Obx, Nc replies: "I have to say that when I worked in Pharmacy years ago, there was a patient who came in and swore by this recipe. She used white raisins, instead of grapes, though. But I have to say that she had severe rheumatoid arthritis in her hands to where they were starting to curl and after beginning this treatment she always showed off to me how pretty her handwriting was and how straight her fingers were. I've seen it myself...I'm a believer."
07/04/2010: R from Littleton, Co replies: "how long do you soak them? what kind of gin? how many do you eat? how often? thanks!"
[YEA] 01/29/2010: Bc from Fair Lawn, Nj: "My mom, who is elderly, had bad osteoarthritis in one knee, with pain, swelling, and limited range of motion. It would be severe at times. She started taking homeopathic Hypericum 30c 2 pellets twice a day for something totally unrelated.
The same day she started it, she was surprised to find that the swelling and pain in her knee was very much reduced, and she now had full range of motion. That night, she told me she got into bed bending that knee for the first time in years!
At first we thought it was just the change in weather, but it continued getting better so that she no longer needs a cane. She stopped taking it after two weeks, and the pain started to creep back, so she has started it again, with improvement again.
It was startling how fast the improvement was. We consider it a miracle, since we weren't even treating arthritis. It's nice to have a positive side effect for a change."
04/06/2013: Tara from Carson City, Nv: "I want to know how does honey help with arthritis I hurt so bad I really don't want to take methotrexate anymore the side effects are horrible but I suffer everyday and don't want to try humera bc of the side effects."Replies
04/07/2013: Courtney from Granite Bay, Ca replies: "You have nothing at all to lose by trying it. It certainly won't hurt you and it just may help. The poison you're taking now isn't helping, so what down-side is there to trying honey a few times a day? Exactly. There is none. Go for it!"
04/07/2013: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "The Mrs takes a cup of root ginger tea honey and a capfull of ACV every night before going to bed, shes been doing this for about a year. When she went to the rheumatologist he said the Arthuritis was in remission, all her blood readings were normal, but he didnt want her to stop the methotrixate because he was frightened it might flare up again. I cant see the reason in this, if theirs no sign of arthurits why take the drug."
