I have arthritis in my hands and wrists and bad knees pretty bad, not immobile but really flares up on occasion. I have found that mixing 2 large heaping spoon fulls of Blu-Emu extra strength with 5 droppers of DMSO and 5 droppers of refined Emu oil together will make the pain practically go away for 10-12 hrs. The DMSO really helps the ointment absorb into the skin much faster and works along with the ointment really fast. Give it a try, can't hurt!
I put my 50/50 DMSO & distilled water into a 2 oz. glass bottle with sprayer and spray the areas I want to use it on. I then rub it in. I have been using it for 3 days this way with no irritation anywhere, including my hands that I don't wash after. I haven't noticed a ton of results yet but I think some minor benefits so far. I am also adding a pinch of Borax in my coffee in the morning. I had to take ibuprofen today because I couldn't walk on my swollen, inflamed feet. How long before I see more results? What is the average time for these protocols to work.
