My brother has had excruciating back pain for years and was researching natural cures last week and came across an article that said crystalized ginger would help. He went and bought some saturday night and by Monday morning he was walking around without any pain!! I thought that was pretty amazing! Best wishes and God bless!

EC: Crystalized ginger is a popular remedy for sciatica too!

Can you [or anyone pls clarify? Turmeric what? Tincture perhaps? One Tsp would seem to indicate a fluid but it can also be chopped fine out of the fresh root!

I have been a Turmeric fan for several years since I discovered that the Tincture will eradicate 'phantom itches' in minutes. I also use it in raw plant form; a great herb!


EC: Poster from 2009 probably used turmeric powder.

How effective has this been? And how long did you do this before you started feeling relief from arthritis? Thank you.

Hi all, I absolutely love this site. I've used many of the cures (tea tree oil to avoid headlice in 5yr old daughter, turmeric and ginger tea for MRSA) and have come away with perfect results. However, I've been diagnosed with arthritis in my hip and it has been suggested to me the only way to relieve my pain is to have my hip replaced. I'm 30 yrs young, I do not want to resort to surgery just yet so naturally I've come to earthclinic for advice. I've been drinking 2tbs of raw, unfiltered ACV with 1tsp of organic honey or Agave Nectar in 8oz hot water every night for the last 3 weeks and it has done nothing for my pain. I decided to add 1 spoonful of blackstrap molasses every morning to my regime (just started this yesterday) and also added 1/2 tsp of turmeric to my ACV tonic. I was hoping for some relief this morning, but I'm still in pain and limping around. I'm going to continue with all of the above, but wanted to see if anyone had any other advice or perhaps just some words of assurance that this could eventually reduce my pain. Sincerely, Katie

I have an arthritic knee with chondromalcia patella. It was really bothering me one night at bedtime so i rubbed coconut oil on first around my knee then a few drops of oregano oil. Within five minutes my knee pain was gone. This is wonderful stuff.

Wearing a copper bracelet can significantly help with arthritis, back pain, aches and joint pains. My parents swear by it. In fact my dad makes jewelry and after he discovered that copper helped him with his bad back pain he started making copper bracelets for sale. He has been selling them for over 15 years and the personal testimonials he's heard are remarkable. The amount that it helps is individual of course and varies but most people feel at least SOME improvement while others say they experience DRAMATIC improvement. In any case it's cheap to try and can't do any harm. I'm surprised copper wasn't posted before and curious to read other people's experiences with this.

I take 1 teas. of Silver Bio tec 2 times a day. for my arthritis. Started it three weeks ago, and I no longer take my prescription meds. You can find it in any health food store.

I have tried many remedies. MSM is great for joint pain. CGF a concentrated form of chlorella will cure almost anything from a lowered immune system including cancer. fish oil has helped with depression. Fiber, ACV, probiotics they are all wonderful. I had AS a rare form of arthritis and experimenting with supplements has sent it into remission for years.

Oil Pulling

Hi. I only discovered about oil pulling while browsing the web on information on how to cure me of my skin disorder (keratosis pillaris). I read a posting done by this lady who SWEARS by oil pulling and its remarkable effects! I tried it just yesterday and was shocked at how fast results can be observed! I'm suffering from a knee injury due to my active lifestyle and since i'm not exactly young, i don't recover too easily. I've been having a bad knee for weeks now. But when i did my first oil pulling yesterday, i got IMMEDIATE results! My knee felt so light and i was able to do squats with no problems! I'm really a sceptic so i was finding ways to credit the improved knee flexibility to other 'health practices' of mine. But when my mom tried it later that night (she sufferes from acute arthritis), she too said that her joints felt remarkably better! i did it again this morning and later today, my heart was racing. Also, i feel a bit of discomfort in my private region. I don't know if it could be because i had an infection before and it was probably in the process of healing... i'll continue the OP and see what happens! I'm a convert!

I am of Korean descent, and for as long as I can remember, my grandparents and my mother have been using ginger for a few different ailments. Recently, I noticed with the cold weather, the flu bug was going around and I have had some pain and swelling in my wrists and finger joints. I made tea by boiling one ginger root, sliced and diced, in some water, added some fresh lemon juice and the peel (how it was done forever in my household) and added honey into my cup. it isn't a cure for a cold, but it certainly helps to relieve symptoms. i took the warm ginger remains out of the pot and mashed it up and applied it topically to my wrists and fingers. the pain is substantially alleviated. if you can handle the smell, it is worth a try. this is not a cure for arthritis, but a natural and very healthy way of relieving pain.

Dear Suzanne: Thanks for tip. I'm going to the shopping centre where the health food store is this afternoon....and I'll get some ginger root. My ankle is in bad shape. If it were a knee or a hip....I'd have a replacement.....but they can't do that very well at this point with ankles. When we return from Viet Nam I'm looking at ankle-fusion surgery. It's not quite as bad as it sounds. One still has some movement where the leg meets the foot......and the pain stops!

Dear Suzanne: Can't thank you enough for the ginger recommendation!! I've only been taking the stuff for a few days... but the results are remarkable. I'm moving around just about pain-free. We leave tomorrow for Viet Nam and I hope to enjoy the walking... which I was afraid I wasn't going to be able to do.

I have suffered from very bad arthritis for some years and also osteoporosis of the spine. I used to dread winters even though I was prescribed anti-inflamatory pills and painkilers by my doctor. I recently discovered ginger root (I found a newspaper article about ginger that I had put away some years ago) and have been taking it for about 3 weeks now in capsule form from the health food shop. The stiffness has gone from my joints and spine and most of the pain which is gradually disappearing. In fact, the other day I realised that I didn't have any pain or stiffness at all. It is such a great remedy that I am recommending it to everybody I know who has arthritis.

Golden Grapes Soaked in Gin

I have tried this recipe. When taken regulary it seems to be very helpful. There's several of my friends who find it helpful too.

I also recently lost 25 pounds, with the help of Raw apple cider vinger. I use it for a daily detox, antiseptic for scratchs, minor burns, mostly to help alakalize my body. Most americans have more acid in akaline in there systems.I take about a shot a day. I can really tell when I am not faithful, and eat poorly.

I was told by a friend this cured his relative of crippling arthritis after 2 months. We have been doing it for 2 yrs and it does really help.

Gin raisins. Take golden raisins and clean them out and pick out any not good looking ones on a tray. Fill a jar 3/4's full and fill the rest of the jar with Gin. We use Bombay. Gin has lots of herbs. We are recovering alcoholics and don't drink but don't have a problem with this. After 8 days, eat 8 raisins every day. It works wonders. Good luck.

Try bromelain for joint pain it helps. Has anyone ever tried noni juice it helps also.

Bromelain, derived from the pineapple plant, is one of a group of proteolytic enzymes (enzymes capable of digesting protein).

I'm interested in the jello for joints! Do I take just one cup a week in beginning? Or one cup a day? I suffer also, not being able to get pain managed and on strong medication that defeats the purpose as the medication makes it hard for me to walk also!

I really hope this helps! I'm eaten up with arthritis in my spine in my arms and hands. This will be a real answer to my prayers!

Thank you for sharing!

Glucosamine and Chondroitin
Posted by Jyoti (Tampa) on 07/13/2022

I'm looking for the name of Glucosamine for arthritis from Switzerland. Someone had mentioned that the brand was very effective compared to others in another post I cannot find.

Please if someone can help it would be great.

I have bone spurs and arthritis. A friend learned of my condition and advised these supplements: 250mg. Magnesium Oxide, (promotes bone and muscle health) and Super B complex, 250 mg. (promotes energy and metabolism). USE AS DIRECTED ON BOTTLE. Along with these supplements, I mix 1-64oz. bottle of pure 100% apple juice, and 1-64 oz. bottle of 100% grape juice, and 1-cup apple cider vinegar. Mix all liquids together and store in refrigerator. Drink 1/3 cup of mixture 3x a day. It has worked for me! Thanks and may you all be blessed with wonderful health! And remember, WE ARE WHAT WE EAT!

Dietary Advice
Posted by Michelle (Sun prairie, WI)

Eat no raw tomatoes or peppers to get rid of arthritis. Eat grapes and pineapple to counter act arthritis. Stop taking advil or other pain relievers. It will take time.
