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.

Thank you for the advice.

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

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.

For the past 6 months I've had throbbing knee pain, especially when I lay down to sleep at night. I had heard about C_____, or fruit pectin (used to make jellies and jams) can be purchased in any supermarket, stopped one individual from having a knee operation. I've been taking one tablespoon mixed with any fruit drink (you can mix it with anything really) at night and it seems to be working!! Certainly worth a try, especially since I know I don't have much fruit in my diet. Will keep you posted.

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).

Have heard that pineapple/juice cures 26% arthritis. It works and have even saw this in animals such as bears that were arthritic being helped. Make sure pure & no sugar added.


Poke Berries

Posted by Kathryn (Tulsa, Ok ) on 03/03/2011

Hello! My dad called me the other day to ask me to check online for poke berries to help him with severe arthritus pain he's been suffering with even with medication. I had never heard of such a thing being taken for that. And, like most everyone else, we had always been taught that they were poisonus! So, I started digging and came across this page. In my search I noticed that, even though it is available in the wild, no one mentioned where it might be purchased. Since we are not currently in a growing season, where might one PURCHASE poke berries to take till he can harvest his own? Alos, are there any pointers on harvesting?

Thank you so much for offering this thread and opportunity to reply!

To Kathryn in Tulsa-- you are absolutely right about it being the wrong time for Poke Berries. There will probably not be any in the wild until mid to late summer. My late husband knew what Poke Salad (as he called it) was. I was a bit reluctant to eat something growing in the wild, especially if you had to boil it 3 times to get it tamed down enough to eat. I like my boiled Poke Salad best scrambled with eggs! It tastes much like strong spinach.

His father was born in the Oklahoma Territory and that is who he learned about Poke Salad from.

We lived in the country near Baton Rouge, LA when my husband spotted some growing wild behind the house. I live in Waco, TX now and there was some growing on a vacant lot down the street from me last summer so it grows quite prolifically in the central US for sure. Perhaps you can find some seeds online and plant them for plants and berries this summer.

If the powers that be have their way we will have laws passed banning all except very weak prescription vitamins (Codex Ailamentarium). We are going to have to learn how to survive with what we know about medicines from Mother Nature. People survived before synthetic drugs came on the scene, we may have to go back to natural cures.

I found this reference online"This plant contains chemicals called the "pokeweed mitogens" that are being studied for use in treatments of autoimmune diseases including AIDS and rheumatoid arthritis". Another site mentions using the pokeberry dye in their solar power units. Another site mentions making pokeberry wine for arthritis. I did not find any mention of seeds for sale but the best site I did find is by a herbalist and has a lot of comments from other people that use the berries for gout, children's medicine made as a tincture for a cold, assorted other things. That site was www.wisewomantradition.com/about.html. Google said there was over 50, 000 references to poke berries so you may find seeds online with some reading. Good luck in your quest.

About 5 years ago I tripped and almost fell. I was afraid if I had I would break a hip. However in not falling and catching myself I tore my ACLs. When I finally went to the Orthopedic guy he basically told me I needed a knee replacement and that I had a very arthritic knee. He seemed to delight in showing me how they would just slice those joints off and bolt on some aparatus. I declined at that point and in a later appointment they injected some Chicken comb material supposed to help the bones glide better with a large needle that looked sort of like a turkey baster. Needless to say it was quite an experience and I have done everything I could to stay out of his office. ACV seemed to help some, but I realized I was getting less and less active because I was in pain. About a year ago, I went to a Chiropractor and she told me about Prolotherapy and how it could help me. It's a treatment where they inject sugar water in your ligaments, causing inflammation which make them stronger when they heal. Due to having flashbacks of the turkey baster, I just let time pass. Finally about a month ago I realized I had to do something and sugar water was a hell of a lot less invasive than having my knee joint cut out. So, several days ago I went in for my first Prolotherapy session. She did an ultrasound of my knee and there were large bone spurs in the area of the most pain. She numbed the area and injected the sugar water and compared to the turkey baster - it was a walk in the park! But the greatest thing is - it's 3 days later and it's at least 75% better if not more! I went grocery shopping yesterday without any pain! I'm climbing the stairs in my house with no problem! Of course, insurance won't pay for it. So I'm out $285. But I don't care! I figure I'll probably have to have another session, but I am so stoked about this I had to share! The pictures on the internet (Youtube) are a little scary and I think that was why I was so reticent. It's just such a relief to think about doing things and realizing you can because you're not hurting anymore.


Raw Milk

Another very simple cure for arthritis is glucosime and chondroitin. And the simplest way to get it? Raw Milk. I suffered from advanced arthritis for years until my chiropractor told me glucosime and condroitin was the simplest way to defeat it. And one of the simplest ways to obtain that is raw milk. As there were several people milking near me, I was able to get the raw milk easily and far cheaper than regular milk in the store. For nine years I had no problem until both milkers shut their operation down. My pain came back with a vengeance as if someone were cutting thru my arm socket with a knife. Sleeping was impossible. I finally found another person with raw milk and after 3-4 weeks the pain went completely away once again.

When they pastuerize milk they take away all the good vitamins. Raw milk has those in it. As long as you find, preferably a small independant milker, one that's clean, as they almost all are, you will have no problem. There are no side effects from milk unless you are lactose intolerant, other than good ones. It's a simple, cheap, and very easily absorbed into your bloodstream. You won't be disappointed.

I have found that high strength rose hip worked really well on arthritis in my hands and of course regular exercises to keep the joins moving.

HAVE TRIED SALT WATER FOR 4 AND A HALF MONTHS DRANK 2 QUARTS OF WATER A DAY AND USED REDMOND SEA SALT CANT TELL ANY DIFFERENCE IN MY ARTHRITIS OR ANY THING ELSE FEEL THE SAME BEFORE I STARTED CAN'T SEE IT HAS ANY BENEFITS WILL JUST STICK TO WATER.

Hi Jeff, There are lots of different kinds of salt, and you do not mention the amount of it that you took. I'm sorry the Redmond didn't help you, but this is what happened to me:

I have used 1 pinch of (Celtic) sea salt in every glass of water for years now. I cook with Celtic Salt or Celtic Salt sole. I also use Himalayan Pink in my household shaker, since the Celtic is too moist to shake and guests don't seem to know what to do with it. I do not use Sodium Chloride table salt unless I am stuck in a restaurant without my own shaker (which I usually carry).

1 slightly-heaped teaspoon of Celtic Sea Salt in ~10 oz of distilled water stopped my back pain and greatly reduced other muscle pain within 20 minutes or so. It didn't work until I took enough of it all at once, IOW all those pinches in all those glasses for all those years did not do it, but the onetime teaspoon did. Ted from Bangkok is right, if it's the right salt, you'll know it within 1/2 hour.

I have also discovered that if I overdo the salt (I can feel it if I do), the fastest fix for this is to drink enough plain distilled water to dissolve the ingested salt and run it out. Another thing that helps to recover quicker from a seasalt OD is to take a long, hot shower.

So IMO it depends upon your requirements and the chemical composition of the particular salt you are using. One of these days I will check out the local seasalt that is produced here where I live. I haven't tried that yet.

I hope this helps.

Recently I had a severe case of Arthritis that affected my left thumb. The thumb would lock down and I had to unlock it by force. The pain was also quite severe. I began using Spirits of Turpentine to relieve some of the soreness and used it for a month. The arthritis and the pain gradually went away and has not returned. At all. Anyone Else ever Tried Turpentine for this disease?

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.

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!
