Gelatin is still the most effective treatment for arthritis. Unflavored gelatin is very beneficial for most people suffering from joint pain.

Hydrogen Peroxide

I decided to try Food grade hydrogen Peroxide for arthritis. I got a bottle 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. I wear gloves because it does burn your skin . I mix one ounce with 12 ounces of water to make it less than 3%. I did see at the grocers 3% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. I will get that once I run out.

I began taking one drop in a glass of water 2x a day.The first day, the second day I took two drops and the third day I took three drops, so on and so fourth. I worked my way up to 8 drops. All arthritis pain disappeared within a few days. GONE! I took it for short while, just to be sure. There are books out there on the subject like McCabes book, Flood your body with oxygen. But going overboard on anything, even oxygen, is not good either. I do tons of research before I jump in.

Reading on Earth Clinic about Type II Undernatured Chicken Cartilage, I'm interested in discovering if anyone has had any success in treating arthritis with this?

And, if so, where to purchase it, dosages, etc.

Many thanks!

Thank you for the advice.

Did you have improvement in swelling in the affected joints? Did you have your joints deformed before the treatment?

One tablespoon of dried parsley in a cup of water and drink it daily no missing the daily drinking. Two months later my pain was completely gone.. One year later the swelling was gone . Three years latter still no pain or swelling. I have been taking parsley for five years and will do so for the rest of my life.

I have found that frankincense oil works wonders for arthritis. I use it on my hands, my husband uses it on his knees and on his shoulder. Not only does it help bring down swelling but actually helps pain. Brings tremendous relief. It is amazing.

I experience a lot of pain in one of my hips...I have a femoroacetabular impingement, and associated bursitis and arthritis. It was becoming a major problem, and I was finding it painful to put any weight on the hip. I'm in my mid 30's. I've started swimming again and even though initially it made it worse, the effect after just a few weeks of regular freestyle has made all the difference. no pain, increased movement and range in the hip and most importantly, stronger gluteal muscles to support the area, as that's my best hope (surgery is not an option). Everyone, get moving!

Eliminating Tea

Tea can cause arthritis!

Why are the government of India and the state governments doing nothing to ruthlessly curb the rampant adulteration and massive contamination of common items of food like tea, milk, cooking oils, spices, etc? Adulteration and contamination of such common foods can cause coughs, colds, asthma, arthritis, cancer and many other diseases in millions of people.

How many persons will believe that I suffered from arthritis, which often caused pain in my knees, over a period of about 3 years, mainly because I was drinking tea? The tea must be containing harmful chemicals, which are used for giving flavor and color to the damned tea leaves during the time they are processed!

I was able to cure myself of arthritis only after I completely stopped drinking tea. I had tried many types of dietary treatments to control the symptoms of arthritis, but I was unable to cure myself of arthritis, as long as I did not completely stop drinking the darn tea!!

Even though I am 73 years old, I have again started riding my bicycle for about 40 minutes almost every day. People who know me are surprised to see me cycling again after a long time. They had often seen me walking slowly and uncomfortably on the streets of pune in the last 3 years. The discomfort due to the arthritis in my knees was obvious to those who had seen me walking awkwardly during that period.

Thanks for posting so many helpful suggestions, lots of different ideas for folk in pain and discomfort with arthritis. My husband's thumbs are very sore at times so I'm going to try the ACV/ginger/honey and include the Blackstrap molasses in his diet. Hope you continue to feel better.

Kombucha Tea

Arthritis: . I started using manchurian mushroom tea (aka kombucha tea). . (real homemade), my sister turned me on to over 20 yrs. Ago. Works very well for shoulder arthritis. It worked very good, but as I'm older I need a larger dose, approximately 11 ounces. To start with u only need 4 ounces. It's not working as good on me anymore. I'm 64. Cold weather doesn't help. I'm in Colorado.

Odis, read up on gelatin for arthritis.

Posted by Art (California ) on 12/28/2015 1464 posts

Dr. Rex Newnham was the person who pioneered the use of Borax/boron to treat different types of arthritis and one thing he figured out over time is that the worse your arthritis is and the older you are, the longer it will take borax/boron to work. He said that it can take up to 4 months to achieve maximum benefit.

Your one month trial may be inadequate to determine whether borax is effective for you or not. Even prescription drugs can take that long or longer to see maximum.

The borax cure didn't do me any good at all. My joints are still as stiff as they always were. I followed the recommended Earth Clinic cure, but didn't help. I drank four gallons over about a month's time, and nothing. So disappointed.

E: Here are two remedies that will help detox bones & joints:

Posted by Jim ( Frostburg, Md) on 10/15/2015

Elinor, regarding your experience with MSM, it is quite possible your pain was/is due to going off the prescription drugs. I'm assuming they were narcotics ...and people do become 'hooked' on these 'pain pills'.

Posted by Mmsg (Somewhere, Europe) on 10/15/2015

Elinor, you are very inspiring!

Maybe you can try taking a LOT less at a time.

Posted by Janet (Indiana) on 10/14/2015

Elinor, I also had some issues with both. The msm I got off wheat gluten and then no problem. The turmeric it was the other ingredients. The most troubling ingredient [I was sick for nearly 2 months] it contained titanium dioxide. I have found many added ingredients to be troublesome. From what I have been reading the titanium dioxide is used in nano form, which means it penetrates more than it should and reactions are severe for some. Janet

Re: Turmeric and Arthritis/Joint Pain

I am 84 years old. Am I the only one that goes into a detox mode with turmeric? I had an experience with msm doing the same thing to me. Msm was like magic where the pain is concerned. no longer needed to take prescription pain pills. I was really a happy camper. Could literally break into a sprint while it was working so well. Then started to feel like I had the flu. layed in bed trying not to even blink my eyes.Years ago I took pycnoginol and was warned that it could cause detox like symptoms so I was ready for it. Not over it quickly.. But the msm was awful .

Started on the turmeric instead. Now here I go again - pain in the joints worse... everything hurts.. so I stopped this one too...Is it just my age that makes me so vulnerable? I never read anything about detox being a side effect, or how to handle it if it happened... But I went to the computer and typed in.... turmeric and detoxing.... and there it was... lots of info on it.... I hate the real pain pills... The government is eventually going to stop them all anyway... I would much rather go the natural way..If anyone has a solution on how to avoid the detox or how to control it to some degree? I would love to know it.. I am still raising kids and need to keep the physical side of me together. Any knowledge or ideas will be greatly appreciated.Thanks all,

Elinor, granma in Texas.

Just two teaspoons of Turmeric per day stopped all my arthritis pain, and allowed the best sleep in years.

Ginger and Turmeric

I have been taking ground turmeric and ginger about 1/2 to 3/4 of a teaspoon of each in hot water plus a sweetener like honey or maple syrup. I drink this about 3x a day. I am 81 have arthritis but no pain.

Am going to try using the Blackstrap Molasses for the sweetener.

Well here it is Monday evening. I've been busy all day moving things out of the way and doing laundry so I can go to Lowe's tomorrow to get another washer and dryer. Last day for the Labor Day sale and can use a charge interest free if paid in 18 or 24 months.

I am not in any pain. My hand is not even stiff. I lifted, shoved and worked pretty hard vacuuming and moving things by myself (I have no one to help me). I would have never believed it if I hadn't experienced it. Just those 1/4 tsp. doses of mag powder last night and this morning was all I had to take to resume a pain-free hand.

Posted by KT (Usa) on 09/07/2015

Last night after I typed my post, the pain in my hand subsided but I felt a little pain/stiffness when I brushed my teeth. I am happy to report that this morning there was less pain/stiffness.

I prepared my first cup of coffee with milk and drank some (about 4 AM). I then dissolved 1/4 tsp. Magnesium Oxide powder in about 5 oz. (juice glass) of warm water and drank that. It still did not dissolve totally so I wiped my finger inside the glass to get the residue. It makes sense to me about the magnesium binding with protein to be absorbed and it worked well for my joint pain from injuries. I am impressed that it seems to be working now, for my hand. I guess age-related degeneration pain is different.

Any information I have shared on nutrition has been taken from a Nutrition Almanac, copyright 2007. I have recently read updated information that I feel is important to inform EC members with regard to magnesium. In the NA and on the bottles of Magnesium Oxide, the instructions are that it is to be taken with meals because it needs to bind with protein before it will be absorbed.

A 2014 report by a practitioner of natural therapies suggests that it not be taken with meals, but an hour before or after.

Even though I eliminated my joint pain (i.e., neck, spine, elbow, knees, and one toe) for decades after I had been taking it right after a protein meal, I recently (in the last few days) started to feel some arthritis type of pain in my right hand. I thought maybe I better read the article. I don't remember when I got it...I had intended to read it...I just kept moving it aside, to do later when I had the time. Now is the time.

The article recommends mixing the powder in 1/2 glass of water, which I used to do, but because it hardened and seemed to "coat" the glass, I wondered if it could be doing that in my veins. I started mixing it in about 4-6 oz. of OJ, slightly warmed (30-45 sec. in microwave) and it seemed to dissolve better.

If anyone is interested in the article, here is the link: select "Colon Cleanse" then "Read More". Scroll down past "Magnesium Oxide", then PASS "Learn more about Magnesium Oxide" and select Magnesium Oxide Information". It should take you right to the article.

I just tried my first dose with water again (I ate about four hours ago so I don't know if it will do any good), I just don't like the way it mixes with water. I will let you know if my hand improves...or even if it doesn't.

I'll have to confess that I had also stopped taking the mag powder everyday and alternated using the tabs instead because it was easier and I'm running low on my powder.

The mag powder is 400 mg. per 1/4 tsp. and the tabs are 250 mg. per tab. Gee, that's pretty obvious. Why didn't I think to look at that before? Maybe this will help someone in pain.

I've learned so much over the last two decades. I had switched to the powder because I had reactions to the binders and fillers in tabs (hidden MSG) Maybe that's why, although "NatureMade" was supposed to be tolerated well by people sensitive to MSG.

It's taken me over a couple hours to type this and I'll have to say the pain in my hand is not as bad as it was earlier. Thank you for allowing me to "process information" as I dealt with the pain.

New things are being discovered all the time...KT

Chicken Cartilage
Posted by Dee (Tulsa, Ok) on 07/04/2015

Knox Gelatin is NOT chicken cartilage. Knox Gelatin is produced from pork. It will work to some extent (any gelatin is better than none), but there are better products out there. Real chicken cartilage gelatin is supposed to be the best because, as far as I know, it's the only was that has been used in scientific studies, so if you can afford it, by all means use that. However, there are plenty of reports from people who use pure beef gelatin with very good results. Also, pure beef gelatin is a lot cheaper.

Got twisted bulging finger joints ...why yes how fun it that ? I was reading up on hair loss sites with Ted about how using Iodine causes so much die off symptoms and I tend to err on the side of caution because I hate pain.

I put a bandaid with one drop of iodine on it on a bad finger joint and went to bed and it was stained for two days golden brown, the color of the iodine .

Then I used a small sample plastic spoon 2-3 inch long including the handle and put one drop iodine on it and held to the joint until is got sucked into the joint .A few minutes time went by while I held the spoon with the drop to the joint . The joints seem to be heading back into the healthy direction . It takes hours for the iodine to dissolve into the joint and return to skin color again. Hope this helps someone .
