Tea can cause arthritis!

Why are the government of India and the state governments doing nothing to ruthlessly curb the rampant adulteration and massive contamination of common items of food like tea, milk, cooking oils, spices, etc? Adulteration and contamination of such common foods can cause coughs, colds, asthma, arthritis, cancer and many other diseases in millions of people.

How many persons will believe that I suffered from arthritis, which often caused pain in my knees, over a period of about 3 years, mainly because I was drinking tea? The tea must be containing harmful chemicals, which are used for giving flavor and color to the damned tea leaves during the time they are processed!

I was able to cure myself of arthritis only after I completely stopped drinking tea. I had tried many types of dietary treatments to control the symptoms of arthritis, but I was unable to cure myself of arthritis, as long as I did not completely stop drinking the darn tea!!

Even though I am 73 years old, I have again started riding my bicycle for about 40 minutes almost every day. People who know me are surprised to see me cycling again after a long time. They had often seen me walking slowly and uncomfortably on the streets of pune in the last 3 years. The discomfort due to the arthritis in my knees was obvious to those who had seen me walking awkwardly during that period.

I ordered Emu oil and Emu Oil cream for my 92 year old grandmother from Amazon and had it shipped directly to her. The oil arrived yesterday and she applied it to her knees and feet using a kleenex. She reported to me that the pain from the arthritis in the knees vastly improved within 15 minutes. She said she did not notice improvement in her feet (neuropathy) but she is going to continue to use it on both areas. The cream was shipped separately and she has not recieved it yet. I have asked her to keep me updated on her symptoms and perception of the pain decrease.

I have been taking epsom salts all year every morning a few spinkles in my 500m water bottle (room temp water) and my aches and pains have all but disappeared. I remember my grandmother always put epsom salts in her tea each morning just a few sprinkles and she said so she did not get arthritus. Well I have to say I think it works but what I want to know is too much bad for you internally anyone know thanks.

I experience a lot of pain in one of my hips...I have a femoroacetabular impingement, and associated bursitis and arthritis. It was becoming a major problem, and I was finding it painful to put any weight on the hip. I'm in my mid 30's. I've started swimming again and even though initially it made it worse, the effect after just a few weeks of regular freestyle has made all the difference. no pain, increased movement and range in the hip and most importantly, stronger gluteal muscles to support the area, as that's my best hope (surgery is not an option). Everyone, get moving!

Fire Ant Remedy for Arthritis

Back in the day when doctors weren't readily available people who worked in the fields had to find ways of healing themselves. If someone has a really bad case of arthritis the best thing to alleviate the swelling and pain are bites from fire ants.This has been done in my family for four generations and has always worked.

10 years ago a friend started me on a tablespoon of flax oil and a tablespoon of cottage cheese daily (the Budwig cure for cancer). After taking it daily for 3 weeks, I woke and my arthritis was gone. I called her up and two others had called recently with the same report. I'd had arthritis in my hands for 10 years by then, since around 35 years old. My mother had the same problem, and her knuckles changed shape in her 60s, causing constant pain and difficulty in movement.

This is not a 'magic bullet': it only helps about 20% of arthritis sufferers. There are several types of arthritis, and this apparently helps my type. It's certainly more useful than the NSAIDs that were only masking the symptoms. I've experimented over the years, and the type or brand of flax oil doesn't matter, nor does the cottage cheese. I do recommend cold-rolled flax oil and not heat extracted, though. The cottage cheese acts as a surfactant, and makes the oil more water-soluble and able to penetrate the cell walls. In Germany Dr. Joanna Budwig used something called 'quark', and cottage cheese is the closest American equivalent. I use low-fat 2% cottage cheese since I'm older and less tolerant of milk fat.

I did another experiment to prove the effectiveness: I quit taking it and went 'cold turkey'. After 2 months, the arthritis returned. I stayed off for a few more months, just to make sure. Then I started taking one tablespoon of flax oil and one tablespoon of cottage cheese again, and 3 weeks later my arthritis was gone again. I duplicated the same experiment 4 years later, just to be doubly sure. Same results: 2 months of no dietary addition, and the arthritis came back, 3 weeks taking it and I'm cured again. Obviously you can skip a week or two while on vacation with little-or-no ill effect.

If you research the 'Budwig Cure', it was originally a solution for cancer, but it's not a 'magic bullet' for cancer, either. You don't need to blend the two as Dr. Budwig suggests; I take one and then the other and let my stomach do the mixing. I do chew the cottage cheese thoroughly to make sure it mixes well in the gut.

I used the Budwig Protocol many years ago for an awful case of psoriasis and did my own research - I read Dr. Budwigs books and understood the science behind her great body of work. I followed her protocol exactly. In under 3 months, my psoriasis was history.

My point? Dairy products have many added pesticide residues and hormones - and many patients do not acquire a "cure" if they choose or cannot afford organic products. After reading Dr. Budwigs books, I understood why she had success and suggests her methodologies. I trusted her research - hence, I got cured. I eat her focc recipe (flaxseed oil cottage cheese) once a week only because it's delicious.

I have found that frankincense works wonders for arthritis. I use it on my hands my husband uses it on his knees and on his shoulder. Not only does it help bring down swelling but actually helps pain. Brings tremendous relief. It is amazing.

This arthritis treatment has over 20 years use with animals. Humans have accidently discovered it works to stop arthritis quicker and better than any substance known. Some people have become pain free for up to two years after a single application. This substance gallium nitrate has many interesting properties to it. It attacks iron dependent harmful pathogens behind many forms of cancer, autoimmune disease, and numerous forms of illness. http://gallium-nitrate.com/arthritis.html

For arthritis, research knox gelatin. 35 yrs ago I had no knee cartilidge. Went on knox, in two months pain was subsiding. In 6 months almost grown back. In a year I was fine. I couldn't walk up or down stairs, run or anything. I am now 72 and knee cartilige is fine. Still take one packet every week or two as joint insurance. It has worked for many, many people!!!!? Ken

A couple of days ago I awoke to find pain in the area of my left hip, in the front. I'd not felt any arthritis pain in my hips since I gave up eating grains about six years ago to heal adrenal fatigue caused by stress.

Anyway, I came straight to EC's arthritis page and decided on gelatine as the remedy, especially since I had gelatin packets hanging around for 10-12 years. I emptied one packet into my morning smoothie...what amounted to a level tablespoon...drank it all down and was relieved of the pain right away.

That afternoon I felt a hint of pain and drank another packet of gelatin in half a glass of water. It was kind of uckie, but it went down and I got relief.

Next morning (yesterday) I felt a hint of the pain again and had another gelatin packet in my smoothie. Got relief right away. In the afternoon, to play it safe, I had half a teaspoon of turmeric in a little apple juice. (Also from EC.) The taste was very palatable.

This morning, to play it safe, I had another packet in my smoothie. I am fine, no pain since yesterday morning.

I am 76 y.o. and I'll be putting gelatine in my smoothie from now on. I'll have the turmeric when there is no smoothie. B.T.W. on the box it says "The Original Unflavored Gelatine" ... spelled with an e at the end.

Now I can keep on bragging that at my age I have no arthritis, no prostate problems, and I can still make babies.

Dear Nicholas,

Well, after reading you whole post about using gelatin for arthritis...and especially reading the last sentence of your post...what I want to know is...

Had a feeling I'd be asked for smoothie ingredients. Got most of it from Dr. Mercola's site.

  • 1 large ripe banana (overly ripe, if possible)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 t-spoon powdered clove
  • 1/4 t-spoon powdered oriental five spices
  • 1/2 t-spoon powdered cinnamon
  • 1 t-spoon bee pollen
  • 1 t-spoon honey
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup water

I watch my diet, do daily exercise and take a ton of supplements based on what I learned on EC. I also eat chyawanprash daily - Indian jam made of healthy herbs and spices.

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?

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.

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.

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

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
