How to Cure Arthritis

Arthritis refers to severe pain in the joints and muscles. The pain can be reduced by the following remedies:

  • Drink natural apple cider vinegar mixed with water and honey. Add two teaspoons of vinegar and two teaspoons of unprocessed honey to a glass of water, and drink this three times a day. Be sure to drink a lot of water daily.
  • You can also get relief by soaking the arthritic joints in hot natural apple cider vinegar. Use a quarter cup of vinegar mixed with one and a half cups of water. For areas too large to soak, you can soak a cloth in this mixture, put it on the affected area, and wrap a towel over the soaked cloth to keep in the heat. Once you feel less pain and have more freedom of movement from the apple cider vinegar, keep moving the joints to make them flexible.
  • Lose weight to take stress off your joints.
  • Taking 500 mg of Glucosamine with chondroitin 3 times daily helps to keep joints healthier and more flexible.
  • Certain foods can trigger the pain, like white potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes, peppers, spicy foods and citrus fruits.
  • Garlic boosts the immune system and can help reduce the pain of arthritis. Garlic may be taken raw or cooked according to individual taste.
  • Increase the Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. It can be found in salmon, sardines, other oily fish, walnuts, flax, soy, olive oil, nuts, and avocados.
  • Get plenty of beta carotene from yellow and orange vegetables and fruits, and green leafy vegetables.
  • Take B Complex supplements daily. It can be found in whole grains, dried beans, split peas and lentils.
  • Take 75 mg of niacin during the entire day. Food sources for niacin include meat, milk, eggs, fish, poultry, peanuts, enriched breads and cereals, barley, buckwheat, split peas, coffee and tea.
  • Take foods rich in Vitamin C that include citrus fruits, cantaloupe, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
  • Take Vitamin E. It can also be found in wheat germ, nuts and green leafy vegetables.
  • Take 200 micrograms of selenium a day. Selenium is also found in almonds, barley and oranges.
  • Take zinc. Sources of zinc include turnips, corn and oysters.
  • Take a teaspoon of LIQUID Certo (This is the product used to prepare jams and jellies) and 3 ounces unsweetened grape juice. Mix Certo and grape juice and drink the concoction two or three times a day.
  • Herbs are also good for curing arthritis. Take 1 tbs juice of fresh leaves of bathua, drink every day on an empty stomach for 2-3 months. Do not add anything to the juice and do not eat anything for 2 hours before and after consuming the juice.
  • Take Warm mustard oil, spread it over Madar leaf (Indian) and foment the joint by spreading the leaf over the joint and keep it there for a few hours for relief.
  • Take 3-4 walnuts or 1 fresh coconut on an empty stomach.
  • Prepare a rub for arthritis by taking 1 pint rubbing alcohol, 1 ounce spirits of peppermint, 1 ounce olive oil, 1 ounce wintergreen, 1 ounce witch hazel, 1 ounce pine oil and 50 menthol crystals. Mix well, and store in a tightly covered glass jar. Rub on affected areas.
  • Watch your diet, reduce fat, sugar, salt and cholesterol.
  • Herbal teas such as yarrow, willow bark, dandelion, and burdock tea are all helpful for relieving the pain of arthritis.
  • Raw potato juice is also very good for rheumatic and arthritic conditions. Cut a medium-sized potato into thin slices, without peeling the skin, and place the slices overnight in a large glass filled with cold water. The water should be drunk in the morning on an empty stomach. Fresh juice can also be extracted from potatoes. Drink it on an empty stomach in the morning.
  • Take one cup of green juice, extracted from any green leafy vegetable, mix it in equal proportions with carrot, celery and red beet juices. A cup of fresh pineapple juice is also very good as it reduces swelling and inflammation.
  • A teaspoon of black sesame seeds, soaked in a quarter cup of water and kept overnight, has been found to be effective in preventing joint pains. The water in which the seeds are soaked should also be taken along with the seeds first thing in the morning.
  • Drinking water kept overnight in a copper container accumulates traces of copper, which is said to strengthen the muscles.
  • Calcium is found to be very good for arthiritis patients. It should be taken in the form of calcium lactate. Two teaspoons of calcium lactate, each providing 400 mg of absorbable calcium, may be taken three times daily in water, before meals for at least four months.
  • Bananas are also very good. A diet of only bananas for three or four days is advised in treating this condition. The patient may eat eight or nine bananas daily during this period. However a doctor should be consulted before doing this.
  • Lime is also beneficial for arthritis. The juice of one lime, diluted with water, may be taken once a day, preferably first thing in the morning.
  • A tea made from the herb called ‘alfalfa’, especially from its seeds, is good for the treatment of arthritis. One teaspoon of alfalfa seeds should be added to one cup of water. Three to four cups of this tea should be taken daily for atleast two weeks.
  • The soup of green gram is also very good. It can be prepared by mixing a tablespoon of green gram in a cup of water, with two crushed garlic cloves. It should be taken twice a day.
  • Treatment with castor oil is also beneficial. Boil two tablespoons of castor oil over a stove burner. Pour the oil into a glass of fresh orange juice and take before breakfast daily till the disease is cured. Take it for three weeks, then wait for 3 weeks and then take it for another 3 weeks. But it is essential that the patient must take an alkaline diet while adopting this mode of treatment otherwise the value of the treatment will be lost.
  • Warm coconut oil or mustard oil, mixed with two or three pieces of camphor should be massaged on the stiff and aching joints. It will increase blood supply, and reduce inflammation and stiffness.
  • The body should be kept warm at all times. Joints should not be bandaged tightly as this limits movement. Quit smoking.
  • Take rest and ensure plenty of indirect ventilation. Dehumidify your home.
  • Sea bathing is also beneficial for arthritis. The natural iodine in sea water is said to relieve arthritis pain. If sea bathing is not possible, the patient can relax for thirty minutes every day in a tub of warm water, in which a cup of common salt has been mixed.
  • Eat alfalfa or take alfalfa capsules. It’s very rich in minerals needed for the formation of bones.
  • Take chondroitin sulfate 700 mg a day to strengthen joints and ligaments. Take it in tablet form.
  • Bogbean is a very powerful aquatic herb for curing joint pains. Since this herb cleans the urinary tract, drink lots of water.
  • Take some whole cloves and mineral oil. Fill a small or medium jar with the whole cloves. Pour the mineral oil over the cloves to cover completely. Set up for a week or two. Before going to bed, dab the oil mixture onto the affected areas and rub in. The stiffness will be greatly lessened.

You can buy the following products from a store:

  • Buy a product called 024. A tube of 024 is good for tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis and muscle relief.
  • Spray WD 40 on the affected area once in the morning and before bedtime. Rub it well. Do this for about 1-2 weeks. The pain will be gone.

    I just like to add raw parsley. Eat a handful of raw parsley each day. My mother has arthritis and she does this for years. She scarcely has pains or swellings in her joints. It is very good indeed.

  2. mom2 j.r.a.

    please please please!!!make it clear that these are anecdotal ideas for helping ease the SYMPTOMS of mostly osteo arthritis NOT rheumatoid arthritis!!! r.a. is an autoimmune disease and must be treated by a rheumatologist.the damage could be serious if left to “cures”like this- there is no cure for r.a.-only control & remission.this is potentially misleading info.some of the ideas can help some people,but one should never ignore the symptoms & not seek professional help

    I heard night shade green vegetables are to be avoided, like green pepper,tomatoes,potatoes & cucumber when you have arthritis. But it’s suggested here to take fresh juice extracted from potato which is a night shade veg..So, am I to understand that it’s when you cook the nightshade vegetable(like potato) that the said vegetable should be avoided?

    Thanks and may God bless you in your work.

    It’s very referential and effective for health management.
    I have ever heard about arthritis caused by the increase of sediment or inflamation in joint and muscles
    as a result of cold air or extra activity.

    I am a firm believer in the benefits of using a comfrey cream rub for helping relieve arthritis pain.

It also helped me avoid having a third cortisone injection for tennis elbow, and a possible elbow operation.

    I have had great success using the 024 ointment for treating arthritis pain in my hands but for some reason I now cannot buy it locally. Could you possibly give me a web site were I could order some. Thanks.

    I am 18 and have fibromyalgia and another undiagnosed arthritic condition (which was previously thought to be Ankylosing Spondylitis, but we aren’t so sure anymore). With the help of the dietitian at the arthritis clinic I go to, we determined that, in my case, starches are enormous contributors to pain. I’m now starch free and eating only fruits, non-starchy vegetables, and proteins. My pain is still awful, but this has most definitely helped more than any of the twenty prescriptions my doctors have tried on me over the years.

    I would recommend anyone with arthritis seeing a dietitian who specializes in rheumotological conditions, if one is available nearby. They can determine what will help you, not just give generalizations about what should help people like you. It won’t “cure” your pain, like this says, since that is impossible, but it may greatly ease it.

    Hello there,i’m trying to find treatments or cure for arthritis.i can’t stand seeing my mom being in a lot of pain.i am searching online for things to do to help her.

    If you or anyone that you know is suffering from arthritis or joint pain I strongly urge you to look into a very powerful enzyme called serrapeptase. Serrapeptase dissolves dead proteins whether it be in the blood stream causing arteriosclerosis or fibrin deposits in the joints which cause inflammation and ultimately the arthritis pain that so many experience. This article is promoting a lot of natural ways to increase your overall health, which is fine, but if you really want to rid yourself of the pain of arthritis you must treat the cause, not mask the symptoms. Also do your research and look into bromelain.

    Thousands of people who once suffered from joint pain are now free of pain thanks to a natural fossilised plant powder called healthsil. I found it here and there are tons of testimonials to prove it.
    As they say, the proof is in the testimonials. I hope you too will find the relief that I did (and all those other people)

    The only cure for arthritis is to get more blood and oxygen to the bones. I have had arthritis in my elbows and hands and the only thing that helped me was bo-joixir. and u can get it from Its a french product I think and my doctors were amazed at the results I got. I would recommend giving it a shot, its a fairly new product.

    WD 40 on affected areas? you’re joking, right? these are arthritic joints, not rusty hinges. bloody hell.

  18. Shane F.

    I am hoping these will help with arthritis, I am 15, and I have arthritis, it is hereditary from both sides of my family. I am a Baseball player, and Basketball player, and when I first started having symptoms I was 14, It devastates me to know this, but thank you for all of the ideas and methods to use, I will certainly try these.

    Try juicing green juices. Watch the liferegenerator on you tube. good stuff. Go on a juice fast. Watch the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

    For several months, my husband mixed apple cider vinegar and honey and drank it twice a day. After a while, he was walking up our steep driveway and he realized that his knees weren’t hurting. This was the only thing he was taking at the time for the arthritis, so we both think it worked. Little by little, he stopped drinking it and the knees got worse again. I think it’s time for him to try it again. He did try a synvisc shot about 15 months ago and it was supposed to work for about 6 months. It seemed to help him for about a year.

    Buy a product called 024. A tube of 024 is good for tendinitis, bursitis, arthritis and muscle relief.
    Spray WD 40 on the affected area once in the morning and before bedtime. Rub it well. Do this for about 1-2 weeks. The pain will be gone.

    May I know if these meds are found in the Philippines? Thank you.

    When I first had symptoms of gout, I started to drink alkaline water with a 9.5 PH from a Kangen aklaline water machine. I consumed 96 oz of alkaline water that day and within 24 hours the symptoms started to fade away and completely vanish. I was very lucky to have access to this machine that easily cost over $4000.00. Sadly not everyone has access to alkaline water, but I did find some helpful information of value at
