As a science-minded clinician I needed to read some studies - here is a useful one from PubMed (searched through Google Scholar)...

Greetings, Earth Clinic. I have been taking the prescribed dose 1/4 teaspoon of Borax with 1litre of water now jst over three months with 5days on 2days off an have been religiously doing so. I have Advanced Osteoarthritis an have been a sufferer over 15yrs now I was 1st diagnosed 2003 at the age of 34. I have tried almost everything to help my condition over the years to no avail, an with 1 Hip Replacement in 2005.........2014 it's hit me again with my opposite hip, but I refuse to have a 2nd operation (Hip replacement).

I saw a Natreopath 6yrs ago who put me on a non dairy diet an to drink 2 cups of Clove Tea a day, I was to rub Tincture O Iodine on the bottoms ofmy feet an Drink plenty of Goats Milk, which is very expensive to buy now at $7.50 per litre, pain subsided to 55% now consuming dairy products again, but a small amount. Thus coming across Borax, the 1st cup I drunk within an hour my pain level reduced to 75% I couldn't believe it, I was in "disbelief" 5days later my Energy level increased 65% pain level at 40% 2 months later 90% painfree an 90% Energy.

I had weaned myself off all pharmaceuticals (Dyclothanac an Paracetamol) 2 weeks before starting the Borax course. I started to do light stretches to exercise my hip.

At 2months I've been 100% painfree an limping every 10 steps as appose to every step. I was feeling Brand New, it was a Miracle. A cold snap hit our Township, my pain come back niggling at 30% just whn I was feeling better.......Myself still taking the prescribed dose. My pains increased to 60% I put it down to the cold.......3months and Two weeks later my joints seem to be stiffening.

I've jst moved house, doing everything myself, with heavy lifting. My pain has increased to 90% I've been resting the past 2days yet feel almost like a Jellyfish........aching all over......I feel like I'm at S.O.S level.........I

s the Borax still working? I feel like my bones are weakening, an all my joints ache now at 90% an feel like the flesh wants to melt off my skeleton........I know you've said sip the Borax throughout the day but I've been drinking my 1litre within 2hours, is it possibly contributing to my decline? Bigger picture I know besides drinking Clove Tea, Borax has been the only other substance that I know of to be helping my Body........I have moved to a house which has no insulation an can feel the cold.......could this be another factor.........Yr Feedback would be Mostly Appreciated...........Regards

I deplore honeymoon reviews. I've waited nearly 10 years to chime in! Sorry bout that.. At age 40 osteo-arthritis was setting in and was worst in my toes (two surgeries) back (car accident) as well as what we expect as "normal" in a couple of my digits. I started to get relief from the 1/8th-1/4 teaspoon Borax protocol within a month. After 6 months my pain in latter areas was reduced by more than 80% and remains so 10 years post.
