I am 54 years old and for the last few years, my knee joints have really been sore. I started to take 5000 IU's Vit D3 per day for the last year or so. That has helped a lot, but I still feel sore, especially in the morning. I also have psoriasis, so maybe the soreness in my joints is the psoriatic arthritus creeping in.
I thought, after reading about borax here on this forum, I would give it a try. In one day, the soreness in my knees has vanished! Maybe it is too early to make any assumptions... Can it be true?
Also, my psoriasis seems alot better after 2 days drinking 1/4 tsp borax in 1 litre of water per day. I guess it it still to early to tell.... but I am amazed so far!!
I shall keep everyone informed on my progress....
I love this forum.....
My comment is on the Borax for arthritis. I tried the ACV (for about two weeks) and didn't seem to be getting any results. So, I started adding the 1/8tsp of borax in a liter of water (drank through out the day). The next day after adding the borax, my knees (where I was having "arthritis pains," I'm guessing, I was never diagnosed officially.) began to feel less swollen. It's been about a week and my knees feel about 80% better. I know this is anecdotal, but thought I would share. I cannot prove it was the Borax (or that the ACV didn't also contribute). I am currently continuing with both and will see how it goes. I truly believe it was the borax. I'm 40 yrs old (female) and used to distance run for about twenty years until I started having knee issues. My mother also has osteoarthritis, diagnosed officially. I mention this because I wonder if it could be hereditary? Anyways, thanks for the info on borax. I will continue it and see how it goes. For now, I believe it has given my knees a big turn around in a small amount of time.

I have this issue (chondromalacia). It bugged me all my life (right knee), until I discovered what it was late in life (I'm now 58). I resolved the issue with a pinch of borax in my daily porridge, and daily stretching of the quads to get the correct tracking over the knee joint. I assume the borax has also helped as the joint pain in my old broken/dislocated fingers (from playing rugby) has totally cleared up (borax aids in flushing synovial fluid in joints). All in all I believe borax is wonderful, wondwerful stuff! I regularly undertake Ted's (PBUH) CarBiCarb regime, as well as the Apple Cider Vinegar, and so that too may have helped. Also, flushing my sinus's with the CarBiCarb mix (including a 1/2 tsp of sea salt), has also TOTALLY cleared up my asthma (which I also never really knew I had until very late in life!). I try to get everyone to try the borax (for many issues), but some folk are just so lame at giving it a try.
