So sorry to hear about your situation.
Look up chia seeds for arthritis on Google.
There are too many links to post here.
They're reputed to have numerous benefits for a variety of problems, including arthritis, and apparently, they're the only food source that has ALL
the essential nutrients the body needs.
They were a staple food source of the Aztecs.
Also, if potassium is what you need, I believe bananas are a very rich source.
I have practised martial arts for a while, and used Comfrey ointment as a remedy for joints, bruising, and muscular pain when I did stupid things
It also helped with the pain of a fractured knuckle from when I punched a CRT monitor out of frustration, and healed the fracture.
I'd be wary of alcohol though, as it does dehydrate the body and can be acidic, but if you have no alternative, what else can you do?
Hope this helps.
All the very best.
