[YEA] I have suffered from arthritis for years and have tried several types of medications.Most give pain-killing results but with side effects. Feeling hungry one evening, I ate a large handful of dried dates, and next morning I felt like a different person. All pain had gone! Why is this? Have I discovered a miracle cure? Could others try this, to confirm or refute. I double checked the food I had eaten the previous couple of days, but the only item that was unusual was the dates. Your's Edward.
EC: Perhaps it is the region where the dates are grown?
We also found this: "Dates are great for post-viral chronic fatigue syndrome sufferers as well as excellent for those who suffer with anaemia. Most varieties of dried dates are very high in iron. All dates have a reasonable amount of fibre and are a rich source of potassium." http://www.femail.com.au/driedfruits.htm
