Thanks so much for your advice. Your advice helps my husband tremendously. I've tried a lot of alternative medicine but only reduce his RA pain. Taking apple pectin pills helps slowly so I decided to double up the dose. I've given him ACV protocol (3 Tb raw ACV+6 Tb white grape juice+12 Tb organic apple juice) twice a day with 2 apple pectin 700mg pills/each time (4 p/day) and eat 1 fresh apple right after that. Maybe you won't see this comment 16 years later, but I still put it here with the hope of helping someone and a big thank to Earth Clinic for this soooo useful site which has been helping numerous people in the world.
Two 500 mg caps per day taken with either grape or orange juice (Vitaimn C) cures Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Gout, TMJ and Arthritis.
I have given it to over 50 people in my job as EH & S engineer for a manufacturing company as well as having used it myself for the past ten (10) years with complete success for pain in both of my thumbs. Lasting results have occurred within 48 hours. Will correspond. WEH
