Hi, I hope this remedy is posted, even though it requires Gin (alcohol). I have researched this and recently tried it myself.
Soak a cup or more of yellow/golden/white raisins in about 1/2 cup of Gin. Make sure it's not the least expensive gin, or the most expensive. It is suppose to have something to do with the Juniper berries used to make the gin. Anyway you soak the raisin in a tightly covered container for at least a week. Then you take 9 a day, 3 in the morning, 3 mid day, 3 in the evening.
I have been bothered by arthritis pain not only in my right knee, but had tennis elbow or tendonitis in my left elbow. Also since my arthritis was very painful, I began walking strangely. After seeing my own MD then a sports medicine specialist, who wanted to 'inject' the site. I went to my holistic acupuncturist. After his treatment my knee felt much better, but my calf muscles began to hurt tremendously. My good friend and massage therapist said she thought it might be a ripped/torn calf muscle. It felt like a very tight charlie horse anytime weight was put on it.
My boss had been telling me about the gin soaked raisins, but I never bought the ingredients to make it up. After this July 4th holiday weekend, she brought me in a cured bottle. After just 2 days of 9 raisins, both my calf and elbow feel so much better. I will continue to use what she gave me and then replenish as necessary.
I do hope this gets posted. It works!
Thanks so much for this site.. Because of ACV I have not been sick in almost 3 years, or had a headache in the same time frame. Thanks to all!!
I have to say that when I worked in Pharmacy years ago, there was a patient who came in and swore by this recipe. She used white raisins, instead of grapes, though. But I have to say that she had severe rheumatoid arthritis in her hands to where they were starting to curl and after beginning this treatment she always showed off to me how pretty her handwriting was and how straight her fingers were. I've seen it myself...I'm a believer.
golden grapes soaked in cheap gin for nine days, then nine grapes per day, everyday. Considerable help for my arthritis. Go figure???? Heard from two others who swear by this.
My mom, who is elderly, had bad osteoarthritis in one knee, with pain, swelling, and limited range of motion. It would be severe at times. She started taking homeopathic Hypericum 30c 2 pellets twice a day for something totally unrelated.
The same day she started it, she was surprised to find that the swelling and pain in her knee was very much reduced, and she now had full range of motion. That night, she told me she got into bed bending that knee for the first time in years!
At first we thought it was just the change in weather, but it continued getting better so that she no longer needs a cane. She stopped taking it after two weeks, and the pain started to creep back, so she has started it again, with improvement again.
It was startling how fast the improvement was. We consider it a miracle, since we weren't even treating arthritis. It's nice to have a positive side effect for a change.
HONEY & DIABETES & ARTHRITUS
THANK YOU FOR HAVING SUCH A GREAT WEBSITE..... I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT I WAS ON THE RIGHT TRACK TAKING HONEY FOR MY ARTHRITUS EVERY DAY... NOW YOU HAVE CONFIRMED IT FOR ME.... I TAKE A TEASPOON OF HONEY IN MY COFFEE TWO OR THREE TIME A DAY...ALSO READ AND FOUND HONEY IS GREAT FOR MINOR BURNS AND IT ALSO DISINFECTS THE AREA OF THE BURN. I HAVE TYPE TWO DIABETES AND THE HONEY HAS LITTLE OR NO EFFECT ON MY DIABETES, ALTHOUGH I HAVE READ IN DIABETES MAGAZINE THAT HONEY IS CONSIDERED TO BE JUST ANOTHER FORM OF SUGAR...THEY SHOULD TELL THAT TO THE BEES!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
In June of 2009 I began taking 35% H2O2 upon the recommendation of a healer friend because my left hand was greatly affected by arthritis. I could not close my hand or grip anything. I was amazed that within only a few days my hand was so much improved taht I could close it and grasp objects. I began taking it daily.
I had a total hip replacement of my arthritic right hip in September 2009 and I continued using 35% H2O2 with no discernable negative effects. I recently had my left hip replaced also, partially due to a break. I stopped using the 35% H2O2 until a couple of weeks ago, when I resumed taking it. I had noticed that the arthritis in my left hand had worsened and I wanted to make sure the results would be as positive as the first time I took it. I will doubtless keep taking it now.
I have been reading and researching for the last few weeks about the many cures of Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade. I purchased a bottle from ____, and had my mother start with the treatment 1 drop in an 8 ounce glass of water 3 times a day, increasing the drops by one drop each day. She is now up to 5 drops as of today, and will be on her 6th drop tomorrow morning. My mother has been suffering from severe artritis for many years, but over the last year it has gotten to the point where she could barely walk. So let me tell you that as of today 9-24-2009, since starting this therapy of oral ingestion 5 days ago, she is not complaining at all of the pain in her lower back, left shoulder, wrist or leg areas. My mother said the only thing she feels now is stiffness in the back of her leg (knee area), but its starting to loosen up. I can tell by looking at how she walks now compared to last week, that it is working for real, It is still early, but I have to say that I am shocked!
Today as I was talking to her, she told me that the feeling in her toes have returned, she didn't bother to mention this to any of my siblings or myself until I was asking her how she has been feeling, since I got her started on the Hydrogen Peroxide 35% diluted with the dropper in 8 ounces of water. By the way my mother is 85 years old. I don't know what to expect as we continue with this therapy, but I have to say I'm thankful for a site like this, and all the information that I have read online here, and all the readily available information on the internet. I will update as I continue to watch my mother's progress. Thank you again!

arthritis cures... I have recently come upon a natural help for arthritis pain derived from another post. I have terrible pain in both knees ( left is injured so it's worse ). I keep a ( garden) spray bottle that holds 32 oz. of liquid. I fill it w/ 2or 3 oz.'s of drug store H202 hydrogen peroxide and 20 oz.'s of distilled water (various strengths can be tried depending on how sensative one's skin is to drying out. I keep this by my bed and shake and spray myself all over, especially knees and hips. It is not automatic like a pain pill but once you get that concentration to the joint IT DOES WORK. I'm 49 and have just experienced this pain in the last 5 years. If you can run around in shorts, spray the concoction on joints 4,5,6x's a day you will feel the difference. There are nights that I would not be able to sleep from the hip pain if I didn't spray.
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 .
Jello! Just plain old Jello is the best thing for Arthritis! I promise! Someone told me about it yrs ago because i have Arthritis in my lower back. and when it gets to bad, i cant walk at all. and i tried it and it worked great!! Just mix it as if your going to chill it and instead of putting it in frig, pour a coffee cup full and drink. do 1 cup a week to start and then drink as often as needed. Great for stiffness and all!!
I have gone from having severe, painful arthritis in my hands, particularly my thumb joint and wrists as well, to nothing short of a miraculous recovery.
Nothing really helped much, until I began drinking fresh juiced vegetable juice every day, 2X a day. I use 7 or 8 different veggies, and drink about 32 oz of juice a day. I'm also vegetarian. After six months of this regimen, I have virtually no arthritis pain AT ALL!!
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.
Linseed oil (refrigerated), Tyrosine and Echinacea cures wrinkles, arthritis, varicose vein pain, Parkinsons Disease, fibromyalgia. 5 tablespoons Linseed oil and 2 echinacea tablets 3 times a day. Don't take calcium, evening primrose and glucosamine if you have any of the above conditions. Just try to eat less meat and plenty of fruit and vegetables. Fresh vege juice is very good also try 1 clove of fresh garlic a day. Tyrosine stops the shakes of Parkinson's very quickly. You will feel so much better.
I have posted my story before. I was turned on to Earthclinic by a retired Pharmacist from Houston. He was adamant that advice from Earthclinic saved his leg while big pharma's solutions only made his condition worse. Unfortunately, I do not what his problem was, however I became an avid reader of Earthclinic as a result of talking to him. I suffered from MS like symptoms due to aspartame poisoning. I have a long post about aspartame in the Artificial Sweeteners section. However, this post is about how I got rid of Arthritis symptoms. It resulted from several posts on the use of LDN (Low-Dose Naltrexone) in the Earthclinic section on MS.
When I first started reading Earthclinic I thought I had MS, in fact 6 different Neurologists all said I had MS. Although my currant Neurologist thought that initially, once she looked at 9 years of MRI's, she told me that I had MS-like damage to my nerves, but I did not have MS. However, prior to that diagnosis, since several posts on Earthclinic talked about using Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) to successfully treat MS symptoms. I started using it. After 3 months, totally unexpectedly, my arthritis symptoms went away.
I had been taking a strict regimen of supplements that included Fish Oil, Zyflamend and White Willow bark to control the stiffness and pain in my hands; I had had arthritis symptoms for over 10 years. The LDN helped to boost my Immune System, and got rid of the Arthritis symptoms. LDN did not cure it, but as long as I take it, it works. Since I travel frequently I once forgot it and after 4 days without it, the pain and stiffness returned. I have since found from numerous websites that boosting the body?s Immune System with LDN helps it to overcome many autoimmune diseases. One UK website claims that 80% of Arthritis suffers experience relief after taking LDN for from 1 to 12 months. If someone suffers from Arthritis and they can't get rid of it any other way, I strongly recommend LDN.
The website www.lowdosenaltrexone.org explains how it works in detail. Many other sites discuss it as well. It is without a doubt worth looking into for Arthritis as well as other diseases that are affected by your immune system. I use a dosage of 1.5 mg of LDN taken each night at bedtime. The max dose for LDN is 4.5mg, but I have Restless Leg Syndrome and can't take that much without making those symptoms worse. I had to get a prescription to get it and I use Skip's Pharmacy in Boca Raton, FL as the compounding pharmacy.
Note that the lowdosenaltrexone website lists several compounding pharmacies that provide LDN but Dr. Skip has probably the most patients and provides great advice. He told me that even though the MD who wrote the prescription specified 4.5 mg, that I would get better results if I started with 30 days of 1.5mg then 30 more days of 3mg then going to 4.5 mg. Then, when I found out I had problems with the higher doses, he recommended diluting the 4.5mg doses by emptying two 4.5mg capsules into 1.5 cups of distilled water and drinking a quarter cup each night. Then storing it in the refrigerator. I saved a lot of money this way. I have now been using LDN for 18 months and it is still working well.
