Having recently torn the cartilage in my left knee, simultaneously diagnosed "with a little arthritis" in the same, and swelling behind the knee. My Sport's Ortho said that the swelling was common with the torn cartilage but should go down in time. I began searching on the Web for a magical pain relief remedy (other than my already supplementation of Glucosamine Sulfate, Chondrotin, Taurine, Collagen, HA, Cats Claw, Bromelain, MSM, etc., etc., etc - .all of which I have been taking for years due to 27 yrs of cycling but at almost 68yo, something had to give). One subject that kept surfacing on the Searches was an old time remedy of Castor Oil. I'm not in terrible pain, but it is a 24/7 aggravation, as anyone who has similar discomforts can attest to.

I decided to give it a try; purchased a package of ladies' cosmetic, cleansing pads (~3"x4") and a small bottle of Castor Oil (CO),

I placed a pad on a saucer, saturated the pad with CO (not dripping) and popped it into the microwave for about 35 secs. I, then placed the (105F) warm pad on my knee; wrapped my knee-pad with plastic wrap (to keep the CO from staining the heating pad) and then applied a heating pad, set to Med. heat. I left it on for about 1 hour and when I removed everything, I did a "test walk" -not only was my knee not stiff, and the swelling was 95% GONE!! I could walk with 100% less discomfort and this was 10x more effective than the Cortisone or three Hydraluronic Acid injections I had received in a two months period. The other nice thing, is that you don't have to throw the saturated pad away; place in a Ziploc bag for the next application and just add a little more CO.

I generally apply this treatment daily, each time the knee feels better - I know it's not going to remedy the situation 100%, but has made my life much better.

With you guys 100%. I did something to my knee. To this day I have no idea what caused it but one day it started hurting like crazy. 2 days later I was driving and when I hit the brakes the pain was excruciating. I hobbled to my doc and he gave me a very expensive anti-inflammatory and pain killer prescription. On my way to the pharmacy I decided to go to a naturopath. He prescribed a $5 bottle of pure Castor Oil and told me to go home, elevate my leg, rub the Castor Oil on my knee 3 times a day and wrap with a tensor bandage so the oil wouldn't get on my clothes or sheets. I woke up the next morning and the swelling was down about 95%. Followed the same procedure on day 2. Day 3 I woke up and my leg felt great. Still a tiny bit of tenderness but I could walk up and down stairs with 0 pain. Day 4... Gone. I've since recommended this treatment many times. With two people I recommended this to whenever I see them in a pub they always buy me a beer in thanks. My $5 investment has paid off dozens of times... Pain free and a lower bar tab. Can't argue with that.

I had a knee injury at 16. Every once in a while my knees give me trouble, maybe or maybe not related to the injury. Anyway, last week my knee was really bothering me. I had pain under the kneecap and it was making me limp somewhat. I had not even done anything that I knew of to bother my knee.

I soaked a cloth (not dripping) with castor oil oil and wrapped my knee with it. I covered that with plastic wrap and covered that with an ace bandage. I slept with it that way with a heating pad. It was somewhat improved the next day and now my other knee was a little "twingy" too.

So for the next couple of nights I just massaged castor oil into each knee and loosely put a thin flannel baby blanket on my knees to protect bedclothes. I used a heating pad one night. But in a couple of days, all knee pain was gone in both knees. I have continued to do this each night anyway, just in case. The skin on my knees is very soft now, too!

Regarding knee-joint pain remedies specifically, I can attest to the efficacy of cold-pressed Castor-oil packs, wrapped in saran-wrap and followed by an Ace bandage or neoprene knee-brace. Use overnight for a minimum of four nights and my nagging ache disappeared. I now take Flaxseed oil capsules which are seemingly, keeping my knee free of daily pain.

I am very delighted to read all the good positive stories about cold water shower healing. Allow me to share my story.

I am a Moslem (from Indonesia), and the month of Ramadhan (fasting) was just over. For those not familiar with this, Moslems fast for 30 days during the Ramadhan month, every day, wake up at dawn (around 3 AM), have meal, fast during the day (no drinking no eating no sex), and break the fast at around 6 PM.

I have this problem with my right leg knee, it gives me pain when I bend during a prayer. For one month of Ramadhan, I "practiced" the cold water shower each time I wake up, at around 2:30 AM. After that, I pray (the so called "night prayer"), and have meal. To the best of my knowledge there is no reference in Al Quran about taking shower at "night", although there is the so called "night prayer" which is not obligatory, but very strongly advised for Moslems, and it takes time somewhere between 2:30 and 3:30 AM. We call it the "last one-third of the night".

I just felt I had to heal myself this way, because I heard many times especially from elders and those "natives" coming from rural villages, of cold water shower "healing", which normaly takes time between 2 and 4 AM. Many people here say, it's not healthy to take shower at night, before 12 AM, but it's healthy if taken after say, 1 AM. Some martial arts practitioners here do take shower after evening/night training, at around 1-2 AM or later. I had a friend who literally couldn't walk, not paralyzed but pain in both his legs (thigh), was eventually healed, Praise Allah, could walk (and run) normally again after spending about a month or so taking cold water shower from a well (using bucket / dousing) every night (at around 3 AM).

Back to myself, Praise Allah, after 30 days of night cold water shower, I do feel better now. I can bend my knee again, with less pain.

Perhaps someone have an explanation about the "state" of water during the night, especially between 2 and 4 AM ?

In response to post about cold showers at 3am, I believe that it is at about this time that Spiritual/Etheral energies are at their strongest also in relation to water, reading about Dr. Masaru Emoto and his research into water crystals will give you a whole new respect and understanding of water.

I don't think it is the time, it is just the water...I have also noticed that after shower with warm or cold water, no matter the time of the day, the pain goes away.

Collagen and Calcium Hydroxyapatite Supplements

I had knee bone on bone rubbing and taking 1 capsule mornings of chicken sternal/sternum collagen type 2 cured the bone on bone over several months. Improvement occurred within days. I will always take it. It didn't heal my non-painful shoulder.

I also take 1 capsule evenings of the calf bone concentrate "calcium hydroxyapatite" because it feeds the bones and teeth and has type 1 collagen which feeds the ligaments and tendons. I will always take it, although I still have a small amount of bending knee pain but it's no worse.

I also think I would have sensitive teeth if I didn't take calcium hydroxyapatite.

Some joints never heal with supplements, but I think the skeletal system still needs feeding and maintenance with these two supplements.

I used to have chronic knee pain until I was led to purchase and use colloidal gold. The 2 droppers under the tongue had this knee pain gone within a couple of weeks! It's amazing. Also took away this numbness I use to get in my left shoulder that stretched down my arm. It's completely gone.

I've been suffering from meniscus tear for about 6 months. It started with me having serious digestion issues causing serious weight loss which reduced my energy and increased my pain from RA. I slept all day and everything I ate caused me severe joint pain. I went from being crazy active to bedridden in such a short period. This caused me to lose strength bc I couldn't exercise anymore. When I started feeling better but still extremely underweight, I would try to exercise slowly on my elliptical. This caused my knee pain which worsened to the point from walking to wheelchair bound.

I now suffer from a locked knee that's 40% angle and can't straighten my knee. I also didn't have health insurance so seeing a doctor was very expensive. The doctors I saw which I paid out of my pocket all wanted to give me a cortisone shot. I was too scared to try it bc of my digestion issues. I also was too scared to take Alleve bc of my digestion issues. So I just suffered pain every day all day. I tried leech therapy twice which alleviated my pain but the 3rd time, it worsened.

Finally, after 4 months of getting no sleep from my knee pain, I remembered reading about comfrey oil. Native Americans call it "boneknit" bc it heals broken bones and torn tendons. It also relieves pain and inflammation. I bought the oil and put liberally on a cloth and wrapped it around my knee and placed a heating pad on it for 30 minutes. I did this once in am and once before bed.

I also took 2 cups of apple cider vinegar baths with the hottest water I could handle.

Within 4 days, my knee pain was 95% gone and swelling down 60 -70%. I think the combo of both Apple Cider Vinegar bath and comfrey oil with heat healed some of the tear and inflammation. I'm still suffering from my tear and my knee is still swollen but I can finally see my knee cap.

Now have health insurance and can finally get surgery for it. If I had used this oil immediately after my injury, I think I would be walking and not wheelchair bound.

Btw my digestion finally improved after 8 months of being 15 lbs underweight. (110 to 92). I'm petite so this was very hard on me. My body was starving itself bc my food just wouldn't digest. Anyway, a Russian doctor told me to try Himalayan salt twice a day 1st thing am and before bed. He said to start off small and work your way up. Fortunately, I didn't have high blood pressure issues so I started with 1/4 tsp in warm water twice daily.

Within 4 to 5 days I started gaining weight. Within 2 months, I'm finally 106lbs and my food is digesting.

I have h.pylori and am still working on getting rid of it, but at least I'm gaining weight now and finally have energy and my RA pain is more bearable. I do take natural supps for my RA: turmeric, acv, lemon juice, moringa, raw honey. So that is helping the joint pain. I've seen several Dr for my meniscus tear and hopefully I will get my surgery in a few weeks and get out of this wheel chair. I hope this helps.

I think this is good. I will add that you might want to go watch John Bergman on youtube before surgery, you might change your mind. He had knee surgeries and was in a wheelchair. He teaches doctors on spine health. I learned a lot. Eric Berg on youtube could probably help get the pylori under control. I grow comfrey. You might read up on Dr. Batmanghelidj to get your minerals in balance with hydration so you can get peaceful again.RA is autoimmune and water minerals balance is the cause of most autoimmune issues. You are doing lots of good things and borax is a mineral to put calcium in the correct place in the body. Study a lot before you try it, it is part of the cure for RA.

Replied by M.A

I also want to add that I'm taking borax for my RA. 1 large pinch 4x's daily in water. It's been 2 weeks and I think it might be helping. Not sure bc I have so many areas that are painful (ie hands, ankles, knee, arms, and shoulders).

For my RA pain, I'm taking 1/16 tsp of pure powder aspirin (bought at a feed store for horses) and then 1/16 tsp of lysine with 1/8 tsp of chlorophyll and 2000 mg of vit c powder with bioflavonoids in my yogurt. I only take this once in the morning as it lasts me all day as a pain reliever.

I also have h.pylori that I'm dealing with which I take 1 tsp black seed oil 2x's day and 15 drops of oregano 2x's day with black walnut wormwood and clove extract from NOW. I think the oregano is working bc I'm having less burping, gas, and nausea. I'm also drinking cabbage juice. Going to try this for 2 weeks and see how I feel. Next, I will add turpentine and dgl and mastic gum to see if that works. So many Natural remedies out there it's difficult to know what to try.

Thanks for the info.

If you have any swelling in your knees or legs,stop drinking everything and drink only Distilled Water, I promise it will take the swelling away. Please try it for a week and see results. My knee was swollen and the doctor prescribes Steriods, and instead I did the distill water.

I am a biologist and I don't think drinking distilled water is good for you!
1. you will lose a lot of minerals with it
2. water will enter body cells through membranes via osmosis - this may lead to their damage

I strongly recommend drinking mineral water!

For knee pain I use DMS0 diluted from 99.9 percent down to 70 % using distilled water. I put the DMSO into a small spray bottle and put arnica spray or gel on first and then spray my knees and around the sides a bit down my leg.

Don't put on colored clothing right away as the DMS0 takes everything you put on the skin and sucks it into the tissue and into deeper parts of the body. Dyes on the pants could come off and get on your wet skin and the DMSO will take that into the tissues also.

Just sit around and let it get absorbed. Works wonders!! I can walk without any pain.

I was told about DMSO a few years ago but didn't bother purchasing it until I saw how much my brother in law was suffering with the pain in his knees, for the last 18 mths the pain had been getting progressively worse till it was painful for him to walk.I spent the extra money and had a bottle sent from America, I felt it may be of a better quality, it's in a glass bottle which I read was important, and 99% pure, he applied full strength to the knee, within an hour there was no pain and he could walk normally, it's hard to believe but there has been no pain for the last two weeks, it has changed his life completely, he says it's a miracle

HI U KATHY,,,,,,,,,,, worked in the 60's for the company who produced DMSO and sponsored Dr. Jacob in his research. After reading your post, I encourage you to buy and read Dr Jacob's book on DMSO. He was the DMSO guru who testified before congress when the FDA tried to outlaw the solvent.

He never advises using DMSO full strength. You use 50% above your waist and 75% below your waist. Also, Dr Jacobs did not sell his DMSO in a glass jar. He passed this last year and his company is no longer in business. I bought from his company for many years, but I don't know the plastic he used for his bottles.

Myself, I use DMSO daily on my right knee and my lumbar. I first use Bio Freeze or Voltren Gel, a topical prescription, and then add the DMSO to drive it into my ailments.

If 100% worked for your brother then I'm not going to throw rocks. There is usually a reason the experts recommend protocols. That is the reason I say read his book.

The reason DMSO has never had a FDA double blind test is that when you use it your breath smells like garlic. So folks would know if they were using DMSO or a placebo. The FDA did not want it to succeed, too effective, too cheap, natural, so it could not be patented.

Eliminate Aspartame and Artificial Sweeteners

For about the last ten years I have had a pinched nerve in my neck. I am 40 and very active (yoga, lift weights, run, etc) It flared up on occasion when I would work out hard and I would injure my shoulder or neck, putting additional pressure on the nerve. About 18 months ago the pain got so severe that I was seriously considering surgery which would have fused some discs in my neck together (among other things). A business associate had mentioned that he had problems with his knees hurting when he drank diet coke, which i drank. As a last resort I quit drinking diet coke and about 4 weeks later the pain in my neck was down to manageable levels again. This lasted about until recently when it flared up again, I had recently started taking a new weightlifting supplement (powder) and upon closer inspection it contained aspartame. I talked to my doctor who had not heard anything about his particular side effect of aspartame, but we theorized that the additive caused small swelling to muscles which impinged my already narrow nerve openings. needles to say, I have cut aspartame back out of my diet.

Replied by Jim

I completely concur. I did a research article once on aspartame and it was published. My publisher got a threatening call from NutraSweet's lawyers! They seem to keep a number of lawyers on permanent retainer to try and squelch the consistent bad press about diet drinks that contain aspartame.

It is nasty, nasty stuff. Using the completely natural extract of stevia for sweetening will get you off any dependence on artifical sweeteners or sugar, for that matter.

Aspartame is unhealthy and will harm your body. The companies that produce it, including NutraSweet, know it is bad for you. They have to hire lawyers to try and suppress the truth from getting out! That alone should give you all the info you need to make a life-affirming choice for yourself or others.

By the way, my editor stood behind me and refused to retract the article or apologize for it. We never heard from those cretins again.

For me exercise eliminates knee pain. I have also had meniscus issues in one knee for at least 6 years now after a particularly hard training session at my dojo in Los Angeles. I kept walking the dog after the injury, but didn't go back to karate for a good week. I did resume my training after a week and my knee felt better in 3 weeks. Now, oddly, my medial meniscus becomes inflamed only if I stop exercising for more than a week. When it does, I know I need to get back to exercising asap. Overnight the pain and inflammation diminishes to almost nothing. It's very peculiar thing.

Ya exercise is the only thing that relieves knee pain for me too. I think it's because you force blood to go the the pain area and that starts the healing process laying on the couch and doing nothing is the worse thing you can do for a weak knee.

Year ago I injured my right knee - the meniscus - working out. It was very painful for a few weeks, but I continued to exercise and it healed, but not completely. I can't do high impact workouts. I was travelling last week and forgot to bring my supplements with me. When I returned, I went for a walk in our hilly neighborhood. By the second small hill, the knee with the meniscus issue starting killing me and I limped home, barely making it up our driveway it was hurting so badly. My knee never gives me this kind of pain! Then I realized that what I stopped taking for the past week was my omega 3 fish oil capsules. I immediately took one and then 2 more the next day. My pain level went down 80% within a day and was back to my "normal" (that is, ocasional inflammation with fast recovery) within 2 days. I am amazed at how much the fish oil helps. I have taken fish oil regularly for years, but only now figured out that it's what has been helping my knee this whole time!!!

My experience.. Back around 1985 my knees had to be replaced. The cartiledge had worn away, and jagged bone was scraping on bone. Best known Dr. in Boston, Ma took xrays. (BRUINS & CELTICS DR. ) both I and my wife saw the xrays. Got a 2nd opinion from specialist in Lowell, Ma. Same diagnosis same xrays. Looked very bad. I COULD HARDLY WALK UP STAIRS AT all, Knees hurt so bad. No tennis, racketball, waterskiing, skating, no nothing. Bone against bone in both knees. Went home and on line found a study being done at harvard univ. They gave ground up chicken cartiledge to patients about to get knee replacments. They reported amazing reversal of knee problems.

It took about 2 months for some pain to go away... So I started taking 4 packets of KNOX GELATIN in orange juice every day. After 60 days I saw improvement starting. At six months I could climb stairs and run around with a frisbee with my kids. At one year I felt back to normal. About ten years ago I fell on my shoulder and it was xrayed in winchester, Ma. I told the doctor about my knee problem, he asked if he could xray my knees, and he did. HE POINTED OUT TO ME ALL THE WHITE CARTILEDGE IN MY KNEE JOINTS. He stated emphatically that I never had a knee problem in my knees.

I am now almost 70 and my knees are perfect. I know people who suffered with knee pain and knox gelatin made their pain go away. I still take one packet every week or two. I actually told Knox about how it effected my knees, but they wern't interested. (I know there is a lot of money made with knee surgery today. ) So basic it's hard to beleive. If I can help anyone who has a knee problem, explain what I did, email me at kenpratt1(at)gmail(dot)com. I'm not looking for anything. If I can help one person I'll be very happy..... Please try it. It is practically free(the knox is so cheap at the food store) email me. I am no doctor, but I have great knees. Also if you have used knox let me know how it worked for you. MAYBE WE CAN HELP SOME OTHERS........... KEN

Hey Ken, I am very interested about this gelatin stuff for knees. I've been skateboarding since about 12 yrs and I'm now 25 and my knees are not great especially for my age. My mate is even worse as he is a commercial vinyl layer and skates too so has terrible knee problems. Mine are not so bad but I'm sure they could do with a bit of restoration and I'd rather help them now before I have a serious problem with them. I know my mate would also appreciate some help in this area as he's already had several knee ops and he's my age. Is the gelatin any specific type or if I just go to the pharmacy will they have the same sort of stuff. I'm in Australia so I don't know but I doubt we've got the knox one you are refering too. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Brendan.

Hello Brenden,
The gelatin does have a role in our body, it isn't the vitamin content but it is ability to work with the activities of the glands, causing the glands to take from the digested vitamins. The gelatin when taken at least 3x a week is a really good thing to do to your body, especially after eating or after taking your vitamins. For your knees, I would try rubbing peanut oil on them, especially after a hot sauna, or hot bath, or a steam bath. The reason is that when your pores are open, the peanut oil really gets into your bones and your cartilage areas. Peanut oil, olive oil, Castor oil, any of those oils will work. You can follow the oil rubs with a little bit of grain alcohol to close the pores to really get the oil in there. Also you can do a salt and apple cider vinegar rub on your knees if they hurt. Get salt and put ACV in it until it is wet all over. I would do this before the bath and then the bath and then the oil rubs.

The OP mentions telling Knox about the cure but they weren't interested.

By USA law Knox is forbidden to be interested. No food can be sold for health effects, only drugs are allowed that. If Knox were to advertise it's food as helping knee cartilage, they would be forced to stop selling it or spend $50-100 million on double blind clinical trials to prove the validity of the claim. That's what Congress decided, it's a food with no known health benefits or it's a drug that must undergo expensive trials before being sold; supposedly this rule protects us all from scams.

Knox is not the bad guy in this game. Sites like Earthclinic are how we find out what different foods might actually do good for us, bypassing the impossible $$$$ clinical trial requirement.

I recently started using gelatin in a fun way--making Knox blox (Knox is a gelatine brand in the US). Take 1 pack of Jello or other sugar-free gelatin, add 2 packets (2 tablespoons) of unflavored gelatin, add 2 cups of boiling water and stir until dissolved. Then pour into a 7x7 pan (I have a Corning Ware casserole dish and cool for one hour. Slice into 20-25 block and eat with your fingers. You can use Jello with sugar, but I prefer the sugar free. You can also use fruit juice for flavoring, then you need 3 tablespoons or packets of unflavored gelatin. It's great and a quick way to eat a lot of gelatin. Not only great for your joints (it's made of melted cartilage), it's also great for your skin, hair and nails.

Thank you for confirming this. I recently bought a box of Gelatin and been eager to hear how it works for knee problems. I feel from my bike few yrs ago and it mess up my knee cap and I had some shots too. However due to the exercise those squats and lunges irritated it and my ligaments around my are started to ache and swell. Now the swollen is less but every time I walk up the stairs to my work it hurts even on the weeks when I don't workout. I am 27 yrs old and my highest weight was 280 pds and have lost 50pds so far. So I find this so heartbreaking because I been unable to do any lower body workouts due to my knee pain. I just hope this really helps me. I feel so old. :(

I can practically guarantee you, that once you lose the weight, your knee issues will be a thing of the past.

I gained a lot of weight during/after the birth of my daughter many years ago, and oh knees were always aching. It took me a couple of years to finally get the weight off, and once I did, *voila* more knee pain!

The same was true of a co-worker who suffered with "bad knees". He was very overweight and ended up having weight-loss surgery. When he was within 10lbs of his goal weight, I asked; "How have your knees been?" (I already knew what he would answer.) He said; "They never bother me at ALL now! "

While you're losing, be kind to your knees and do a lot of walking instead of squats, etc. In the meantime, I used to find that massaging castor oil on my knees helped a lot as well. It's also helped the sore knees of many of the friends I've recommended it to as well.

I'm taking the KNOX GELATINE in hopes that it can repair/heal my Torn Meniscus. I dont want to get surgery as my doctor prescribed and cut a piece of my cartlidge off.

So I have a couple of questions that I hope I can get some feedback on...

1) I've started taking the KNOX GELATINE as Ken (Henderson, Nv, Usa) has stated but I just mix mine in water. The problem is, it has really slowed my bowel movements up and made me constipated. Has anyone else had a problem with constipation while taking GELATINE? If so, did you find a way to fix the problem?

I've only been on it for 11 days so far. For the first 6 days I just mixed 2 packets (about 15g) in some room temperature water.

I would mix the 15g of powder with 2oz. of water and then add in another 2 oz. and drank it really fast so it didn't gel too much (I do this 2x a day).

Then for the last 5 days I've lowered the dose and now mix 5g of powder in 2 oz water and mixed it up real good( with a fork I find is best) and then added in 6oz. hot water. It comes out like a liquid with no gelling at all. (I do this 2x a day)

But the thing is, I still feel constipated. My bowels just seem sluggish.

2) Maybe a stupid question but I'll ask anyway...if I use Collagen Hydrolysate/Collagen Peptides instead of GELATIN will I get the same benefit/results?

As I mentioned earlier I'm using this to help heal my torn meniscus. Hoping it can heal and grow back my cartilage that is torn as it did for the original poster, Ken (Henderson, Nv, Usa) who used KNOX GELATIN.

I think I read that Collagen Hydrolysate is easier on the stomach. So I'm thinking maybe the Collagen Hydrolysate won't cause constipation (just a guess by me).

Thank you for any help.
