If you don't mind me asking what state do you live in, that can make a huge difference in pain remedies.

MODUCARE!!! I have turned people on to Moducare® is a patented blend of plant sterols and sterolins, I know a lady who had the same thing you have and, every time I see her, she comes over to tell me how great she feels. I remember how skeptical she was when I told her about it. She now promotes it and is a subscriber.
I use it on cats and once told a member of the FCF to treat his cougar with it for arthritis and it was a success.
No fancy diets, no doctors, just a couple capsules a day, and in a few days you'll be thanking me.
Most health food stores carry it, or you can get it on-line. The purist form of it can be obtained from Africa. Google it, and your condition and read for yourself.
I swear by this stuff.

Hi, There are some great pieces of advice here. What a great community here on ATS. Let me tell you what works for me and those I know.

Udo's Oil. - This is amazing stuff. Helps with so many ailments. I use it daily. Personally, I use the liquid form versus the capsule as you get much more for your money. Take a minute to read the information about Udo's oil listed here:

Udo's Oil

Secondly, I can recommend this product, Recovery. Other members have mentioned hyaluronic acid and this product contains it. There are others so no need to use this one but it's the only one I have experience with and it works! Here is the link.

Recovery

So, there you go. Lots of advice from ATS members and here is mine; Udo's and Recovery. I wish you success.

I've had psoriatic arthritis since I was 12 and I'm female. This is a condition that usually men get more than women, and most don't go beyond the arms and feet. Mine progressed into my hips and spine so pretty much all of me. I've taken nearly EVERY arthritis medication they can prescribe, except Ebrel. I had also been taking up to 4 hydrocodone a day for the extra pain that the anti-inflammatories weren't designed to handle. My practitioner at the time (NOT my rheumatoid doctor) was busy giving me antibiotics for some other problem and ended up frying my immune system. I had to stop taking ALL of it. Even the pain pills.

I had to go on a Candida diet and amazingly, this helped a lot with my arthritis symptoms - some are thinking arthritis may be related to fungal infection. Change in my eating habits and quit smoking cigarettes. Using more natural food choices with less carbs, more proteins and get rid of ALL processed sugar (Cancer & Candida's favorite foods) and Processed meats including ham. It only took a month to see results for me. I challenge you to at least see if a Candida type diet helps you. I thought it would end up costing more. You actually end up eating less since you're getting more protein and more of what your body TRULY needs. Good luck to you!

dont knock it if you haven't tried it.

deny ignorance.


Yes, that is true also, I know from personal experience for some 30 years now. Just didn't think it prudent to mention with the current ATS policy on certain herbal remedies.

Can you please post a link to said policy? I'd very much appreciate an easier way to find it. Thanks!

Hey mate do you get much sun? If not you may want to spend some time in it at around 12 till 1220 as the sun can help with things like that give it a try for a week or so and see what happens and no i'm not a doctor just heard of a story much the same as yours and the person spent more time in the sun and is all good.

By the way don't use the sunscreen either unless it is an organic zinc type one good luck and hope it is all good for you.

I had excruciating arthritis pain in my thumbs from opening wine bottles and it comes and goes. When it is very severe I drink a cup of Braggs Cider Vinegar mixed with a cup of water and as many tbs of honey as I need to get it down 2X a day (am and pm) for 2 days. I never have to do it for 3 days because after 1 and 1/2 days the pain disappears and doesn't come back for months. Every time it happens I tell myself I am going to do the cider vinegar regularly and prevent the onset of the attack but I never do. Someone explained that the vinegar targets the mineral deposits in your joints and breaks them up - I am not sure why it works for me but it does.

hi there and deepest commiserations re the arthritis.

i simply can't believe the cruelty of your doctor..is this someone who is inexperienced?

i don't think anyone has mentioned accupuncture yet, which can have amazing results without medication; also the 'candida' diet works for some (myself included).

i have also been to some pretty dark places with the pain, had more than a few useless doctors and used (abused maybe) alcohol, because..well the pain will drive you mad before the alcohol rots your liver, but it's no answer.

you owe it to yourself to make your doctor understand, they aren't usually so shy about getting us hooked on pain meds.
i really do wish you all the best.

I have had athritis for over ten years and i ger tramadol on prescription and have had it all this time. It really works for me and its a pity you couldnt get it from your doctor. Why not go to a different one instead? Some prescribe while others dont. Good luck....

I don't know if either of these three apply, although they might. For anything that ails you I usually suggest drinking enough water to always stay hydrated (see Watercure.com or Watercure2.com to see if your problem has been addressed or for people to talk to about it), take loads of "Vitamin C" (ascorbic acid), and stop eating animals or their by-products. Any or all of these in combination usually assists the bodies ability to regulate itself greatly and with enjoyable results.

I did not read all four pages, so sorry if someone else has already posted this. I read that you cook your own food and try to eat healthy, so I assume that you already keep your house stocked up with fresh veggies. Other people have also posted about the deterioration of nutritional quality in GMO and poorly-managed farming. My suggestion is that if you have not already, start buying organic/local food. Preferably your food should be certified organic by any organization other than just the USDA. Eating raw vegetables is better than eating cooked vegetables, since cooking destroys enzymes and some nutrition in food. Beyond that the best way to rectify a nutritional deficiency, which arthritis seems to be linked to, is through fresh vegetable juices, wherein you can provide your body with much more access to nutrition than eating.

I got the following info from Dr. Norman Walker's book, Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices:

Arthritis - Inorganic calcium deposits in the cartilage of the joints as a result of eating concentrated carbohydrates in excess.

To dissolve the calcium deposits, drink at least one pint of fresh-squeezed organic grapefruit juice per day.
To ease pain rub the oil of wintergreen on the afflicted joints.
To rebuild and regenerate cartilage, drink one pint of a 50/50 blend of fresh organic celery and carrot juice per day.

Dr. Walker warns that the process of healing the cause of arthritis (rather than just the symptoms) will be painful.

I hope this info is helpful.

For osteoperosis ginger essential oil extract is good for osteoperosis. Recommend using 3-4 days a week maybe 1 or 2 applications a day or once at night before going to bed.
You can get this extract on amazon or ebay. Good luck

Stay away from antacids, they can rob calcium from your bones if you take too much.

So yes, the folks behinds that Tums ad are full of it.

I have the beginnings of arthritis in my hands, nothing like the pain you are experiencing, but in the hope of avoiding it developing into that I went to a health shop to see what they would recommend. They told me a couple of things that have been mentioned in other posts - one, that it's closely related to nutrition, over the long term, and they suggested not eating meat at all. Also they told me about the mixture of cider vinegar and honey, with hot water to mix - a "tot" of this every day - I haven't tried it yet but the fact that someone else in ATS has found it very effective is encouraging. The other thing, which no-one has mentioned, is rosehip extract. These are capsules with a concentrate in them equivalent to 7500mg of dried rosehip. For the first week I took 6 a day to get it into my system, then gradually reduced to what it says on the bottle, which is 2 a day. About 3 weeks so far and it has definitely reduced the pain which was beginning to stop me from sleeping. I wouldn't say it has gone away entirely but my thumbs are less stiff and the size of the worse-affected thumb joint has noticeably decreased. Most of the time I don't notice it now. They did say that it would be a couple of weeks at least before any effect was noticeable. Not sure what it is about rosehips - I know they contain vitamin C.

It wouldn't be an immediate "fix" but if you can get them where you are, it might be worth a try as there doesn't seem to be anything in them that would do any harm.

The other thing that might help is to listen to Ben Fuchs' radio programme. He is a pharmacist who really seems to know what he is talking about. If you can phone the USA, you can call in to his programme with specific questions as well. www.gcnlive.com...

Have you ever considered the possibility of mycosis involvement? www.candidahouse.com...

If it is related, then ANY alcohol drinking, will also only make the arthritis WORSE. And I've become a coconut oil addict as it seems to be good for so many things AND apparently helps with osteoarthritis! www.livestrong.com...

I'm hoping you can find relief. The kind I have forces my bones to twist - just google psoriatic arthritis hands and hit images. Also, I know from taking them that pain pills only serve to slow healing and cause you to have MORE pain from arthritis, they do NOT help.

I am actually finding relief from Camphor Oil. It isn't 100 percent but it does give me relief.

I have so many replies and material to read through I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to post a reply for me. I don't remember whose link recommended the camphor oil but it is awesome.

I have not been able to reply to everyone who posted in my thread but again, thank you everyone for your time and concern.

Best of everything to all of you.

Yes, years ago I went to my physician and we started blood tests and meeting with specialists.

They told me this condition is usually not seen in men and at my age, it is more common in women over 80.

Damn. That was all I had to say.
