The Lacking Ingredient – Gelatin Health

Posted by Michael (New Zealand) on 08/18/2021

These smoothie recipes must be lurking somewhere on THIS website but here goes anyway (if you cannot find them?).

KNEE PAIN SMOOTHIE(Knees and Joints)

1 cup Milk (almond, rice or dairy)

1/2 frozen Banana,

1 tbl BSM,

1 tbl Chia seeds,

1 tbl Gelatine powder,

1/2 - 1 teaspoon Turmeric powder,

1 teaspoon Coconut oil.

Blend in a blender for powerhouse 1 or 2x per day.

Place second batch in fridge (if making two lots). It can be eaten with a spoon later on.

#2 Arthritis Pain Smoothie:

1 cup Almond milk

1 tsp - 2 tbsp Turmeric

1 chunk of Ginger (1/2" X 1/2")

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 Banana

1 cup Pineapple

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1 large Carrot

2 tbsp Hemp seeds (optional)

Once again, give it a whirl.

I can recommend the first one, as I took that one for a while.

A while ago, I purchased a 4 lb container of gelatin from the "Now" company (USA) and have very little left so I must have had a lot of smoothies in the past!

Some posters have been known to add it to their coffee.

The second one I have not tried but there are many appropriate ingredients for an arthritis sufferer in there.

The gelatin is not easy to "melt" properly.

You need to use hot but not boiling water.

Then be prepared to whisk like mad for a while until most of it melts.

I got their beef gelatin but I guess the best might be chicken....... if you can get it?

You might wish to read up on what your chicken can do for arthritics.

Flax Oil and Cottage Cheese

Hi Michael from Down Under,

Thank you for your post, lovely to hear from you again and learn that you are keeping well.

I can relate to you 'almost becoming a monk' by eating just once a day. I discovered a couple of years ago that I was pre-diabetic and now follow a low carb diet. However, occasionally, my resolve goes and I eat the things I shouldn't.

You mention that your evening meals are 'creeping' away from meat, and this seems to be a global trend. For a long time it has been recommended that we reduce the amount of meat we eat, especially if we suffer from any form of arthritis. However, Michael Moseley, author of both the 500 and 800 Diet, was recently quoted in the Daily Mail as saying he would not give up meat!

I'm still following D Johanna Budwig's protocol, having two bowls of the cottage cheese/flaxseed oil a day. She also recommends to cut out meat and replace it with legumes and nuts. The diet is aimed at people suffering with cancer, but it has been found to help other conditions such as arthritis, hence my interest. How long I follow the diet remains to be seen.

She also believes everything in the universe has a vibrational level, and this resonates with me as in the past I've done Reiki healing. Have I ever cured anyone? The answer has to be 'no', but it does make one aware that we are more than purely the physical.

The golden sultanas in gin sound a bit decadent, Michael. Are you sure they will improve my arthritis? What will the neighbours think if they see me pushing a shopping trolley around the local supermarket containing a large bottle of Gordon's Gin?

Shocking news about the high number of young New Zealanders committing suicide, and that New Zealand has the third highest obesity figures in the world. Bang goes the mental image I've always had of fit young New Zealanders surfing through white tipped waves under an eternally blue sky. Or was I thinking of Australia and Bondi beach!

So pleased that the Bicarbonate of Soda worked for your wife's eyes. It's good for so many things. Will not be long before she's posting on Earth Clinic!

By the way, I went looking for Robin Hood in Sherwood Forest the other day. Couldn't find him but it sure was beautiful under that canopy of trees. Saw the thousand year old Major Oak, and it's still going strong.

Stay well, and my best wishes to you both.

Flax Oil and Cottage Cheese
Posted by Michael (New Zealand) on 07/26/2021

Greetings again Gracie,

It was great to hear that you are enjoying some relief from your Arthritis pain! The Flax Seed Oil and Cottage Cheese remedy is interesting. I had heard it being touted as a possible remedy on this Site a while ago but was unsure if many people had experienced relief, or if it was merely a "one off" for one person. Do you take yours first thing in the a.m. on an empty stomach I wonder?

Currently, I am quite well and think it might have something to do with the fact that I am taking extra care to not strain my muscles, ligaments and tendons that otherwise can cause me great strife if I don't watch out for "wrong" movements.

Possibly due to soft-tissue, calcium build-up over the years and I am aware of Ted's advice on this little-known condition.

I try to be regular with Magnesium and Joint capsules one day and Fish Oil tablets the next day. I also take a drizzle of Flax OR Hemp seed oil with my evening meal every evening almost without fail.

In addition, I have almost become a monk by resorting to only one meal per day. This helps to eliminate my craving for bread and cereals which are known to be possible triggers for arthritis. Our evening meals are gradually creeping away from meat and we are lucky to get quite a few of our fresh vegetables from my garden, which gets a little more productive, imaginative and broad-based every year. This year's new vegetable is Kohl Rabi no less!

I am certainly not obese but long to drop a few kilos, which I figure are surplus to requirements and not fit for purpose. Being overweight can lead to harsh health problems down the track as you know. As we grow older, weight loss becomes more of a challenge for some reason.

I have never been a fan for diets until recently and do not relish the thought of counting the calories all the time so I thought I would "out Mosely" Dr. Michael Mosely and go the whole hog and restrict my meals to only one per day and only eat during an eight hour window.

If the weight comes off (maybe six kilos in my case), then that should ease the pressure on the joints. What's not to like?

Early days yet.

As I have had some experience with following Dr. Michael's 5/2 (or whatever) Diet previously, I don't constantly obsess about food throughout the day, so long as I don't THINK about it!

Also, my other radical move, and one which I am hoping you might try, is to take the "Golden Sultanas in Gin Remedy" for a month to see what happens. For this one you need to refer to this Site and ensure that the sultanas are indeed golden and that your tipple is actual, London, juniper gin.

I strongly suspect that they are doing me some good, though you and I will possibly never be completely pain free, a bit of relief is something sincerely to be desired!

Lastly, I have been upping my Vitamin C and MSM intake. All in all, this is about as much as I can handle on a regular basis.

I have thought long and hard about the above for some considerable time now and am now trying to be more disciplined about implementing the regime regularly.

Now for a cautionary tale:-

I realize that New Zealand comes in for some good press these days but we have some horrible statistics actually!! Highest youth suicide rate in the World for instance! Also, we are the third in the world for obesity!!

Number one is the U.S.A. and no. two is Mexico. According to our local paper, New Zealanders (remember there are only five million of us) collectively put on 2,819 tonnes in weight over the past twelve months! Yikes! Those who gained weight, increased their weight by almost ten times the normal weight gain for adults apparently. Covid has changed the way people ate and moved according to the study by "Exercise NZ". We are digging our own graves with a spoon! In the USA, life expectancy is now trending downwards for the first time in a long time!!

Lastly, my Wife (who is a trifle cynical about the amount of time I devote to this Site - bless her) finally succumbed and asked for advice for her sore eyes that had been that way for some time. I suggested wiping some diluted Baking Soda / Sodium Bicarbonate - a quarter of a teaspoon in a third of a glass of water I think, on her eyelids and swallowing the rest when finished. Relief within thirty six hours or so. I am back in her good books again thanks to E.C.!!

Cheers from Down Under

Flax Oil and Cottage Cheese

Hi Joe,

From your query as to whether there is a replacement for cottage cheese in the cottage cheese/flaxseed mix, I assume you're interested in following Dr Budwig's protocol.

She does in the first instance recommend quark which is more refined than cottage cheese, lumps. And I'm sure you're aware that quark/cottage cheese are a rich source of sulphur. Sulphur being highly recommended as a supplement if suffering from arthritis, and usually taken in the form of tablets/capsules. So cottage cheese/quark are essential for the Budwig Diet and I don't know of a substitute.

We've all got our likes and dislikes, but cottage cheese is so mild, so bland, I cannot quite understand anyone's aversion to it. And as Dr Budwig suggests the mixture can be sweetened with honey, fruit added, nuts, and added milled flaxseed.

I, too, suffer from arthritis, but kept reasonably well until four/five months ago when I had a massive flare-up of pain. Couldn't swear to it that it was arthritis, but the pain was so bad there were times when I didn't want to carry on living. However, sought help on Earth Clinic and tried this and that remedy, but they didn't really help the pain. Then 3rd July 2021 (I made a note of it in my diary) I started taking the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese mix, and within three days the pain was gone. It felt as though I was firing on all cylinders.

Now I cannot say with all certainty whether it was due to the flaxseed mix, I think it was, but who can say, I'm just grateful. I'm not entirely pain free, but I can cope with the bit of pain I have, and I'm back to doing my beloved walking. Also, I now take one cup of Kefir a day, plus a healthy diet.

I wish you well on your journey.

I have used Niacinamide (or Niacin) effectively for arthritis pain. When doing so, I usually take 1500mg either 1x or 2x per day for about a week. Then I cut back.

I doubt the 35mg Grace1 mentioned in her 2017 post (posted below) does anything at all. That is far too little. In order for a vitamin (niacin is vitamin b3) to act as a drug, the dosage has to be far greater than what we normally take. I highly recommend all forms of niacin, especially niacinamide, since that does not cause a flush.

Grace1 (Pdx) on 05/05/2017:

"Some doctors in Montreal found Niacinamide to be a potent fungal and aspergilla's killer. It basically kills Candida infections/pathogenic fungi. This of course is something genuis Ted already knew. Niacinamide is especially effective against candida. The human equivalent dose was 35 mg and it was only administered only once. A second dose of Niacinamide was given 8 hours later. However, even a single dose was effective. While this dose is on the high end for niacinamide, for most people it would still fall under 3g, which is what mainstream medicine officially considers the upper safety limit for niacinamide. Niacinamide can cure Candida infection with a single dose. I think taking caprylic acid a before to first dissolve biofilm and then take Niacinamide and I also took two a dissolved aspirin in a glass of water and took it with the niacinamide this was a strongly effective way to go after it. Of course the obvious stuff which is be on the anti-fungal diet, helps and expect a die off so do gentle detoxification to assist the body in the process of clearing and healing."

Bee Stings
Posted by Michael (New Zealand) on 05/21/2021

Well that IS interesting!

There is a chap in this Country who, years ago, set up a business, firstly producing honey, then propolis (sp?) and latterly, bee venom.

He is able to extract the bee's venom and market it as a treatment for Arthritis I think.

I did not realize that a wasp's sting would also work for Arthritis.

Mind you, being stung by our Waikato wasp is no fun. They call it the German wasp in Europe. Not sure what they call it in Germany! We also have hornets and paper wasps plus many native wasps that are not "social wasps". Just FYI as they say.

Two wasps got into my bathroom and stung me. This was painful and long-lasting, but I am a stoic and did nothing. Then I discovered that my arthritis had ceased to pain me. I've since heard from old-timers that "everybody knows bee stings are good for arthritis." If anybody had told me that I wouldn't have believed it, but boy, is it TRUE!

High Dose Magnesium, Vitamin C

Here is another translation of this post, but I think it is a very safe bet that these doses of magnesium and vitamin C are going to give you explosive diarrhea and this dose of magnesium is not safe for regular use:

>>>' I read an article about the beaks of a parrot by a priest who healed himself with magnesium and I thought to myself that I have nothing to lose by having a problem with my spine and hip, which 10 years ago a horse doctor told me would have to be replaced soon. I started to drink 2.6 grams of magnesium chloride in divided doses throughout the day and vitamin C. I took in 1000000mg. or 1 kg. And the same amount of vit C. It is hard to say now how long it lasted but I will not go to the doctor for more advice about my joints and spine because I walk normally and do not limp. I am walking normally and do not have a limp. If you do not work physically, you should exercise a lot. Currently, when I work a little, I lubricate the painful areas with DMSO and there is no pain.

[Google translate from Polish - not great, apologies to the author of this post!]

Once I read an article about [parrot beaks] from a priest who had healed with magnesium and I thought to myself that I had nothing to lose because I had a problem with my back and hip, which 10 years ago was dying, he said that it would need to be replaced soon. I started drinking 2.6 grams of magnesium chloride in divided doses during the day with Vit.C. I took 1,000,000 mg. i.e. 1 kg. and the same amount of vit C. It's hard for me to say now how much time it took, but I won't go to a doctor for advice on joints and spine, because I normally don't limp. I would like to point out that I have a lot of traffic on the plot and during renovation. If someone does not work physically, he should exercise a lot. Now, when I overwork a bit, I lubricate the sore spots with DMSO and after the pain.


Kiedyś przeczytałem artykuł o dziobach papugi u pewnego księdza który wyleczył się magnezem I pomyślałem sobie że nie mam nic do stracenia mając problem z kręgosłupem I biodrem, które to 10 lat temu pewien konował zqpowiedział się że niedługo będzie trzeba wymienić. Zacząłem pić 2,6 grama chlorku magnezu w podzielonych dawkach w ciągu dnia I vit.C. Przyjąłem 1000000mg. czyli 1 kg. I tyle samo vit C. Trudno mi teraz powiedzieć ile czasu to trwało ale więcej po poradę odnośnie stawów I kręgosłupa do lekarza się nie wybiore, bo normalnie chodzę nie kuleję. Zaznaczę przy tym że mam dużo ruchu na działce I przy remoncie. Jeżeli ktoś nie pracuje fizycznie to powinien bardzo dużo ćwiczyć. Obecnie jak się trochę przepracuję smaruję bolące miejsca DMSO I po bólu.

Peanut Oil

Peanut Oil for Arthritis and RA

My Grandmother, who lived to 92 years old, swore that the reason she didn't have arthritic problems was due to peanut oil massage. Most of these old time methods of healing are much better than our modern day medications and have no dangerous side effects. The pharmaceutical companies will never admit this however as there is no profit to be made.

Peanut Oil in the Cayce Readings. The primary use of peanut oil in the Cayce readings was as a massage oil ingredient. It was described as a "food for the nerves AND muscular forces" and a specific preventive measure against arthritis.

- Use peanut with olive oil (I add castor oil also) as a massage oil and rub into the affected area daily, the excess oil can be wiped off with a tissue before dressing. Edgar Cayce readings included oil of peanut blended with olive and pine oil for treatment of arthritis.


George Washington Carver (GWC) Rubbing Oil was created between the years of 1900 and 1910 by Dr. George Washington Carver, the famous agricultural scientist who invented over 300 products from peanuts. Yes, the same man that invented peanut butter. GWC Peanut Rubbing Oil is known for maximum penetration to relieve stiffness in joints, joint-friction from bones rubbing together, tight and sore muscles, and restricted range of movement. The main ingredient is peanut oil.

Ringmaster Pain Relief Rubbing Oil invented around 1950 Pain Relief formula contains 60% peanut oil.

I was in my late 60s when arthritis flared up in my ankles, some days it was so bad I had difficulty even getting out of bed, it seemed to come and ease off. I suspected it may have been an intolerance, so along the route of modern medicine I eventually hit the buffers when I finally saw a Rheumatologist who assured me they could "manage" my condition not cure, only manage. Great. So this is how I cleared my arthritis, I was diagnosed as being wheat intolerant by a Kinesiologist.

So my cure turns out to be NO grains that is:

NO wheat, rice, oats, rye, corn

NO sugar - you knew this already

No processed foods this includes processed meats, sausages, bacon, pies et. al. we all know what those bad boys are, anything containing chemicals preservative etc. they don't belong in your body.

Its up to you. Try it - its not easy. A small price to pay to get you're life back tho.

Of course you may intolerant to something else find out yourself what that something is, your doctor has absolutely no idea, they are on the whole incompetent and unable to cure.

Good Luck

Boron and DMSO
Posted by Bob. S. (USA) on 11/21/2020
5 out of 5 stars

I have arthritis in the back & neck real bad along with herniated discs, but what I found is that capsules of boron a supplement, taking a loading dose at first 4-5 time usual dose for 4-7 days, combined with DMSO applied topically, takes away the pain far more than the pain killer and muscle relaxant I was prescribed. I also had an epidermal to try to calm the pain, and it worked OK, but the pain just keeps coming back, normal with an epidermal, it is not permanent.

It also took away the severe headaches I started to get after the epidermal, another common side effect.

Again the DMSO and boron work better than the scripts. You can add anything else you like, including turmeric, which also helps quite a bit but don`t count on the recommended dose. You might have to up the amount according to your own needs, but all I can say is it works for me and better than any script I have been given.

"I drank four gallons over about a month's time, and nothing. So disappointed." SMH

People need to realize, to be healthy you need to be drinking at least a gallon of pure clean water per DAY! That's 4 liters a day for you Canucks out there... More if you drink coffee or on water pills... I suggest people to not take any pharmaceutical medication because they are ALL poisons.

Pure clean water = distilled water.

I have been drinking distilled water for 6 -7 years now. It is the cleanest water there is. AND no, distilled water does NOT leech essential minerals from the body. They do however remove any non organic matter that doesn't belong in our bodies. Including heavy metals.

We have used our well water going through an Alkaline Ionizer for some 10 or 12 years. The world is coming to an end so you must have a filter that will clean up water from a cow track. So I bought one. We then stopped using our alkaline ionizer to fill our half gallon of water with a 1/4 tsp of borax. What a miss step that was. After 3 months of no borax, my hand joints now ache. The joints are all headed in different angles. I have out-smattered my self. Not a problem........ I said I would be smart at age 85. and have one and a half years to get there. I so smart that I's going back to before I got so smart. Does that make sense?

Well this is interesting, I can actually reply if I use Chrome Browser, but not my Firefox. Oh well, anyway, I'm glad I can finally post. I wanted to update people on what I'm doing for my arthritis. I found what I have for one thing, trigger finger (that's what it's called I guess). The other thing is my elbow, for no apparent reason started hurting so bad, and nothing seemed to work. I use straight DMSO, Then later, I broke down and took 4 ibuprofen, and rubbed my elbow with Freeze Max, some junk I had I bought otc. Still hurt after all that, for several hours. My friend Tanya brought over some ointment made with cloves and marijuana she said. Luckily, I guess you can't get stoned if you put it on topically. I hate pot, and tried it when I was in highschool, and worst paranoia I've ever had. Anyway, even after that, 2 days ago, elbow is still sore and I can't lift with my right hand, nothing too heavy that is. Ok, so yesterday I was determined to go to work on the "fixes" for arthritis, and first thing was the boron (borax, 1/8 tsp in 1 liter filtered water). So today is my second day of that. Weird thing happened last night though I wanted to toss in here. Oh, I also took an epsom salts bath yesterday. I'm suffering with allergies, and arthritis right now so I think my routine really helps both. I use ACV/lemon/ginger drink each morning, and sinus irrigation with salt-water. Now I've added the boron. So I am keeping track of the boron and want to keep people up to date if I can, on my progress. I really believe it can work. Oh yes, the weird thing!! Lastnight, for only the 2nd time in 4.5 years, I went to bed, read my book, and totally forgot about my tinnitus. When I realized it wasn't bothering me I wondered if it was the boron since it's the only new thing. Anyway, my ears were still ringing but much lower. Same today, no noise in my apartment at all right now. I'll be back to let folks know how it's going. Fixing, or stopping arthritis won't be overnight, but I am so hoping to make some progress and not have that awful pain again in my hand, elbow, or anywhere else.

I have started to have arthritis in my hands. I had a shoulder pain awhile back and they did an ultra-sound/xrays if I remember right. Anyway, whatever they did I remember the doctor saying I had "some" arthritis starting. So I now am looking to EC to help with my hands. I now use ACV, lemon, ginger powder, Salt-water irrigation, on a daily basic for allergies mostly. But I also will take a swig of ACV for stomach upset after eating too much, or something that isn't nutritious. I have taken 800 mg of ibuprofen the last, two nights as the pain in my left hand was keeping me awake. I also put on icy/hot type junk I bought otc which I think helped a bit too. I refuse to live on ibuprofen the rest of my life (I'm 67) so I am looking for input on what you do for your arthritic pain specifically. There's so many things listed, and I have cayenne, ginger, and turmeric to make a little roll-on for pain. I hope that works instead of the ibuprofen. I already do the ACV 2 times a day. I guess really, all I want to do is talk to others that have this particular ailment, so I am posting here. Any feedback is welcome, but I do want to talk with folks that are using something that works for them. I read almost every day and know of tons of things to try, and mostly I find the "reads" here on EC. Thank you all in advance. I forgot to mention that I exercise regularly, but I am afraid to do weights now. I don't think I over-did them and mostly I just walk. I want to ride my bike but worry about using my hands for gripping. Which reminds me, I drop things often, and the strength is deteriorating. I love to dance, haven't for years now, but fearful now of ever dancing with a man because he might hurt my hands. If age is just a number, I feel I am 90 today ;(

Vitamin C

I don't do dairy anymore because of allergies (environmental but dairy makes them worse) I was doing Vit. C because of the Covid 19 outbreak but something was making my tinnitus worse so I stopped taking any supplements for a few days. Ears are still ringing, but much less. I'm going to read up on the calcium accumulation, and have also looked into heavy metal detox. Have borax, and edta (ordered that) but I'm afraid of both of those things so haven't tried it :(

Arthritis is caused by poor circulation due to vitamin C deficiency, also caused by infection and calcium accumulation by hard water or by eating many dairy products.

DMSO doesn't touch the trigger-finger pain, or the elbow pain (that started just 2 days ago). I first did the dmso diluted, then when that didn't help I used it right out of it's bottle at 99.9%. Now I'm doing the boron/borax thing using 1/8 tsp in purified water. This is my 3rd day into that. I'll take off 2 days as recommended. I know not all "fixes" work for everyone, but I'm pretty sure DMSO is one that takes effect immediately after rubbing it on. I did use it for a few days on my finger/hand, but only 3 times on my elbow.

Thank you for this J. I have some pretty painful arthritis starting up, especially in my hands, but lots of places in my body have the pain, seems out of nowhere.

DMSO spray or lotion to affected area to be first choice of Arthritis remedy (whether rheumatoid or osteo). There are plenty of authoritative documentations as to how effective DMSO is. It is surprising that not many people seem to use it. The typical 99.9% is too strong to spray, best skin absorption is 70-80% they say, but one shouldn't use such high concentration since it stings too much. There shouldn't be any rush, I use 40% spray to hip joints (which I have been suffering few years & getting worse), and I saw much improvement in only few days!!! I don't feel much stings with 40% (just add 6 parts of distilled water to 4 parts of 99.9% DMSO, this will HEAT the solution, don't be surprised, this is normal reaction – this is NEVER mentioned in any literature I saw). Some plastic melt in DMSO, so preferably buy DMSO spray bottle. Also don't forget Red/NIR Light Therapy too. This is very effective on arthritis as well as many many body conditions, you will be surprised to find so many health benefits in Red Light Therapy including skin rejuvenation. Again plenty of documentations. Study them. This is NOT UV high frequency light, but low frequency red and beyond NIR (Near Infrared that is invisible & has longer wave length than red).

In addition to the selling price USD250 for 500 ml of the 42% solution, express postage from the US is a further £58; then VAT and further handling costs are charged by ParcelForce in the UK to the tune of another £76.(2019) .

Gallium nitrate as a cure for arthritis George Eby in Austin Texas has posted various articles about curing arthritis in people and navicular disease in horses using gallium III. Some of his research has been published in respectable journals. An internet search will easily find his sites, including a sales site. As there seem to be no known side effects I would be willing to try this at least topically (he recommends soaking an arthritic joint in his liquid gallium nitrate for an hour). However, he's elderly now and it doesn't look as though his site has been updated for a couple of years, though it will still accept money. No-one answers the phone or responds to emails. Does any chemist out there know how to acquire the necessary ingredients in the UK or how to concoct a similar solution? I can't find anything similar elsewhere.

Hi Melanie, Please will you tell me which zapper you purchased (I'm familiar with zapping and Hulda Clark)? Thank you. Annie

I have dealt with severe scoliosis my entire life, but issues with my hips, particularly the left one, has garnered diagnoses such as arthritis and/or calcification. Turns out, however, that I've had two parasitic worm infections since 1976, and there was a nest in my hip among a few other places! The usual herbal antiparasitics are too harsh for me, but I'm having tremendous success with the Zapper and homeopathic Cina. I urge anyone dealing with chronic issues to get a Zapper and diagnoses via biofeedback machine since worms are much harder to eradicate than bacteria and amoebas. Additionally, my boyfriend used the Zapper briefly to see what it felt like. His arthritic swelling immediately went down, however, tiny pinworms are now appearing in his fingers so I now believe the few studies I've seen stating that arthritis has parasitic origins. Definitely worth an $80 biofeedback session and a $35 Zapper.

Turmeric extract might help and or diatomaceous earth. You should see some improvement with your bone broth supplements.

Turmeric jar is still full since I can't seem to get passed the taste of it. When you mentioned Golden Milk, thought I'd try and find the recipe. I can handle turmeric in almond milk I'm thinking, although I haven't tried it. Also, if I mix it with other anti-inflammatories like cinnamon, ginger that was ok for a very, short time. I can't get away from bread so far, I don't know what effect that would have on me. I know many say gluten is bad for them but I don't think I have an issue with that, and eat very little. I've heard a lot about turmeric though so I am going to look for something to put it in so I can gag it down, lol! Or maybe just use capsules. I have a bag of those I was putting Cayenne pepper in. I should start using the cayenne again too ;)

Right now Wen, I'd give a bunch (if I had it) to be able to go to an Alternative medicine doctor. I do all alternatives, no drugs, myself. Kind of my own guinea pig but I've been helped so much so far. Now I'm developing arthritis (diagnosed with degenerative, and some arthritis about 2 years ago. I'm 67, active and eat balanced meals including fruits, vegetables, lots of water (bout my only liquid is water) I walk 6 miles a week average, and ride my bike double that probably. I also do free weights here at home at least 3 times a week. I also love to dance and like turning on my tunes and doing lots of stretches, bending and just moving to the beat ;) But I know as I age, my body will get deficient for the usual reasons. Can't get it all in the foods I buy, and I am not a perfect eater, although most days are very balanced. So maybe my arthritis would be a lot worse than it is, but even a little of it hurts like being kicked. I know people here know just what I'm talking about. I hope and pray we all find relief, and also, can somehow rebuild our bods, or at least stop the progress of the arthritis, etc.

I am 64. I consider that to be young. Its definitely too young for a hip replacement and wonder if other remedies such as you are doing now would have helped you avoid that. Try accupuncture [japanese is painless].

I have age-related osteoarthritis (I'm almost 64). What's worked for me is completely cutting out refined sugar in any form, including the "bad" carbs (pastas, breads, white rice, etc.), and definitely using turmeric whenever I can. I've regularly made the "golden milk" (recipe here in EC), and have added the turmeric, organic UNrefined virgin coconut oil and black pepper to my homemade soups and teas. I had a right hip replacement February 2018, and the only time I feel any pain in my knees or even that right hip area it's because I've "cheated" with the junk food. So, basically, at least for me, cleaning up the diet and lots of turmeric really keeps the aches and pains away.

Hello, Approximately a year and a half ago I had a knee replacement, and although I'm left with residual pain and stiffness I have been able to walk three or four miles. However, I feel that the arthritis is moving to my hips, and this worries me. I've tried so many supplements, Borax, ACV, MSM, gelatine, etc but none of them have appeared to help. Very recently I've started taking chicken cartilage type II in capsule form, so I shall see if this helps. I attempt to follow a healthy diet, but am wondering if changing to either a vegetarian or vegan diet would help with the arthritis. The Arthritis Society suggests that this could be beneficial. I'd be interested to learn if anyone has had any success in treating their arthritis by cutting out meat, fish, etc? Best wishes.

Niacin, Vitamin C, and Avoid Glyphosate

Although I've been very health conscious all of my life, including a diet which is mostly organic and vegetarian, I started to develop pain in the joints of my fingers, my knees and my neck. This was very frustrating to me, since I took a lot of pride in my health and my lifestyle. This wasn't supposed to happen to me.

Of course, most people told me that it was simply age that was causing this pain. I refused to accept that, since my Dad was still snow skiing at age 79. And my Dad was not really health conscious. The only difference between the two of us was that he lived in Switzerland, while I left Switzerland and had been living in the US for about 30 years.

So my intuition told me that it had something to do with the US food supply and/or water supply. By the way, the pain in my neck was really bad to the point I could barely move my head. I went to see a chiropractor, thinking I injured my neck exercising. Luckily, after a couple of sessions the chiropractor told me that it was probably arthritis. (of course, he too wrote it off to getting older).

I had previously read a couple of books and old studies on niacin and niacinamide (the form of niacin or Vitamin B3 that does not cause a flush when taken in large doses). So I knew that doctors in the past have cured all forms of arthritis with niacin. So I started taking 1500 mg Niacinamide with 1000 mg of vitamin C 2x daily. I started feeling better almost immediately but the pain didn't completely stop until about 2 weeks later.

I now take 1500 mg of Niacinamide and and 1000 mg of time released or liposomal vitamin C daily. I'm totally pain free.

Getting back to the difference in the food and water supplies between Switzerland, or Europe in general, and the USA. In Europe, GMO foods are illegal. But even more important, Europeans do not use glyphosate ("round up") as an herbicide.

Why is this important? Per Stephanie Seneff, researcher at MIT, glyphosate is responsible for a wide range of diseases in Americans. Glyphosate, which btw was derived from the Vietnam era "agent orange", is not only an herbicide but also an antibiotic, which means it wrecks havoc in your gut. Furthermore, glyphosate has a very similar molecular structure to the amino acid glycene. So in the production of proteins, glyphosate may inadvertently be substituted for glycene, producing defective proteins, which in turn cause all kinds of havoc to the body.

The bottom line is that glyphosate is responsible for widespread inflammation, including inflammation of the joints. So avoiding glyphosate is very important if you want to reduce or eliminate the cause of many forms of arthritis.

As a side note, not only do American farmers dump millions of tons of glyphosate on so called round-up ready GMO crops, but they use it for a totally unrelated purpose. They use it as a desiccant on wheat and other crops, right before harvest. (A desiccant dries the wheat, making it easier to harvest). So you get a really heavy dose of glyphosate when you eat bread or other wheat products. And this is also the reason, imo, that so many Americans claim to be gluten intolerant. It's not really the gluten but the glyphosate. That also explains why many Americans who visit Europe are able to eat the bread over there without any problems.

So in summary, if you want to get rid of arthritis, avoid glyphosate like the plague (only eat organic whenever possible), and supplement with Niacinamide and vitamin C. If your body is already saturated with glyphosate, bentonite clay and charcoal are great in eliminating toxins, including glyphosate.

If you've been boron deficient for a long time, your body may be using the boron to fix something more vital. Which actually makes the teeth sensitivity aspect extremely interesting as it suggests sensitivity in the teeth may be connected to something more serious than arthritis.

Your body knows what it's doing. When it gets something it's been lacking, it doesn't care what you want it to do with it. It's going to apply it where it's needed most, first. Give it some time to get more serious issues under control. Don't try to force it.

I've been taking borax for about a year and although I have not seen great benefits for arthritis relief, one thing it has helped is my teeth sensitivity. I'm not giving up!

Vitamin C
Posted by Michael (New Zealand) on 12/09/2018

Hello Alfredo of Texas.

It was very interesting to hear about your success with Vitamin C for the treatment of your Arthritis.

Vitamin C and MSM together have been recommended by some, as they supposedly work in synergy to bring relief to sufferers. Some C's are easier on the stomach than others by the way-check that one out- and MSM CAN take a bit of getting used to.

Of course, what works for some does not always work for others, as a quick perusal of the feed-back on this Site will quickly inform you.

My personal recent success for aching joints has been as a consequence of taking one or two Magnesium amino acid chelate 150mg tablets per day. They worked a treat and quickly too!! Magnesium Chloride LIQUID also helps me. Magnesium is needed by a vast array of bodily processes and without sufficient (most Americans are deficient in it anyway, for various reasons) then it can make life pretty miserable. Also, it is a very cost-effective remedy. What's not to like?

Gosh, I was so relieved, as I was in the midst of having to get through many DIY / handyman jobs at the time and I was struggling.

However, stick with what works for you and please keep us posted, especially if you need more help with the arthritis. The "Arthritis Club" is one of the largest in the world by the way - "You are not alone", as they say.

Cheers from Down Under.
