Adding a few very thin slices of fresh ginger root to the tea pot has helped my joints - I stopped it to see if the improvement was permanent - it wasn't.

One bit of root lasts a long time as I reuse slices for several days until all the pep is just about gone - then I eat it, there is usually a hot bit in the middle.

I did read a book years ago which claimed that Cider vinegar and honey would cure just about anything.

As Jeri says, It sounds like snake oil.

BUT, small amounts of any kind of vinegar can help digestion and so improve absorption of nutrients from your food.

Honey contains an antibiotic which stops it fermenting, but would probably not be too good for a diabetic.

Lou tried green lipped mussel pills for her arthritis but they didn't help. They smelled good though and I threatened to steal them to use in gumbo.

Two other folk remedies that you might try are laughter and stress relief. One study 'found' that putting a pillow in a corner and kicking the shit out of it, helped relieve arthritis pain.

I was singing my usual silly songs at The Doylestown Arts Festival one year and a woman came up to me after and told me that her arthritis had been hurting that morning, but she laughed so much that the pain had all gone away.

Apples contain pectin which a bunch of potters have found useful for their arthritis. Apple Cider vinegar, contains pectin which can also be obtained as a capsule or powder if one is so inlcined, in moderation is good for all sorts of things, including indigestion, food poisoning and arthritis. I have been using it for about 40 years, almost daily in a glass of water. Hold the honey as it gives me too much sugar. At 77, I am still potting with only an occasional twinge in the fingers lately. The pain in my hip and knee which sent me into a tailspin two years ago, stopped in a week when I started taking magnesium citrate = 1/4 t/day. Also prevents leg and foot cramps. MSM and glucosamine has healed the unidentified pain in my shoulder; six months ago I had to pick up my right hand with my left in order to brush my hair. Now I have full range of movement.

That is how I have dealt with, and continue to deal with arthritis and other maladjustments of my aging body. It is cheap and includes no poisonous and expensive prescription drugs. I have not seen a doctor in about 10 years and hope not to have occasion to do so in the future - unless I break a bone.

since vinegar can be made from either the pressed juice (cider) or from the apple must (the mashed remains from the apple press), I'd wager that the vinegar made from must is just referred to as cider vinegar... but just a guess. The must is pretty dry, so water has to be added before any chance of making vinegar.

"Given that arthritis is an auto-immune disease"

Not necessarily so. There are many types of arthritis the most common being osteoarthritis which is not of auto-immune etiology. It is caused by wear and tear of joint cartilage which occurs most commonly because of aging, excessive weight, injury and there is perhaps an inherited tendency. Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, is an auto-immune disorder typically affecting the joints of the hands and feet which exhibit painful swelling and deformity.

I wonder if vinegar-soaked compresses applied over aching joints would help?

Cannabis has has a lot of anecdotal evidence. In the New Scientist there was a report on research that found it to work by suppressing the immune system. Given that arthritis is an auto-immune disease it does seem likely.
But other research shows that at the 7 day level after dosage, all that mellowness that is alleged, turns into aggression, and I have seen it in a work colleague and had it confirmed by the wife of a lorry driver. The proponents of the weed don't tell you that, they wouldn't correlate the effect & the dose.
And then nicotime is an immuno-suppresant so e-ciggies might have a similar effect.
Personally I'll stick with Neatsfoot oil until my walking is seriously compromised then go for the naproxen the quack prescribed.

we had a friend who learned that he was allergic to nightshades...

pretty traumatic for an Italian who grew up on tomatoes & eggplant.

For an unlucky few it seems that the chemicals have adverse affects.

from site listed below:
One of the major problems attributed to nightshades is arthritis. In fact, one in three arthritics will react badly to nightshades. Some researchers believe that arthritis is often misdiagnosed in people who may in fact only be experiencing the effects of nightshade consumption.

Alkaloids appear to affect the metabolism of calcium. Though not yet understood how, nightshade foods may remove calcium from bones and deposit it in soft tissue, setting the stage for arthritis. For this reason, researchers have recommended that all individuals with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or other joint problems like gout eliminate nightshade foods from their diet.

Tips on using vinegar

Several people have suggested I try cider vinegar and honey to help with my arthritis. In Arthritis Today 149 a letter was written by David Vautier on the same subject. Unfortunately I'm unable to find any reference to the dosage, and I would be very grateful if anyone could help me in this matter.
Mrs H M Coombes, Caerleon, Newport

Editor's Note: We have no scientific evidence to suggest that cider vinegar and honey is helpful. However, previous correspondents have suggested dissolving a teaspoon of honey in boiling water in a drinking glass. Add cold water and a teaspoon of cider vinegar, mix thoroughly, and take before food three times a day.
I've had osteoarthritis since my early sixties (I'm now approaching 90). I've had two hip replacements and very stiff knees. I used to be able to walk for about 20 minutes, or 30 with difficulty, after which time my back became increasingly uncomfortable. Then a friend recommended cider vinegar, which she had read about in a newspaper. You take a dessertspoonful in a glass of water, three times a day. The taste isn't more than mildly unpleasant, but if you prefer, you can add honey, then it's a pleasant drink. My health food shop sells Honegar, which is cider vinegar with honey. The result is miraculous! I can now walk as much as I want to. Several of my friends have tried it with good results, so I warmly recommend it to your readers.
P J Raikes, Oxford, Oxfordshire
Last year I read an article in the Daily Mail about curing arthritis. I passed this information on to two friends who had crippling pain in their swollen joints and had been under the doctor for months – but no drugs they were given eased the pain. They took the advice and tried apple vinegar and honey in hot water four times a day. The arthritis has completely left them. John is now playing lawn bowls again: before he could not even hold a bowling ball. George is now able to work his garden, and I have just received a bag of Jersey potatoes from him. I've seen the proof that this remedy works.
David Vautier, Beaumont St Peter, Jersey

So much unscientific mumbo jumbo in this thread it boggles the mind.

To address just one:

"aspirin works because it neutralizes the acids produced by inflamed muscles and makes the muscles stop hurting."

Erm, no. Aspirin itself is an acid - acetylsalicylic acid so it cannot and does not do any such thing. The anti-inflammatory effect of aspirin is due to it's inhibition of an enzyme, cyclo-oxygenase, a mediator in the production of prostaglandins which are substances responsible for inflammation. Dr. John Vane received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1982 for his role in discovering the mode of action of aspirin.

Dave. The pharma industry aren't interested in cider vinegar but we do rely on them to find combinations of active ingredients, change a few consistencies and begin trials. Not necessarily cynical, just amplifying to a therapeutic dose, and that is patentable,trust me...

As there have been trials of cider vinegar by academic institutions, I guarantee there will have been commercial interest.

Leeneia, braces are non invasive. Nothing wrong in proper clinical trials for them but no legal compunction either.

Anybody interested in the good, bad and ugly of clinical trials, google Dr Ben Goldacre, and better still, buy his excellent "Bad Science" book. Amongst other things, it gives credence to folk cures in that believing in the merit of a potion guarantees 20% of the population will benefit from it. (Placebo effect.)

Most conditions of the body either cure themselves with time or they get better in response to the weather, diet or stress in one's life. Therefore, there's plenty of chance for people to try a naive or fraudulent 'cure', then praise it for any improvement that occurred naturally.

Me, when evaluating a treatment, I'm impressed by two things.

   1. Is there a logical, observed chemical or physical reason why the 'cure' helps the body?

For example, aspirin works because it neutralizes the acids produced by inflamed muscles and makes the muscles stop hurting. Simple.

A brace for the wrist at night keeps me from putting weight on my sore wrist.

   2. Has it proved definitely helpful in a double-blind test?

As for you, RoyH, you tell us you have diabetes. Mudcatters have no business suggesting 'cures' which might affect the treatment of your diabetes. All I can do is suggest that you talk to your doctors about your longing for mobility and see what they can do for you.

Encouraging story: I came back from a trip to France with one foot and ankle in bad pain. The foot doctor said, "You've overworked it." I wore a special boot for two weeks, and my foot has been fine ever since - a period of one year.

It's a traditional remedy and considering the apple has been given special status in some societies and religions, the hype may be based on superstition. I drink a few drops of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water several times a day. Yes, it seems to help my arthritis, no, I'm not sure if its the placebo effect, but, because it works, I don't care.

Here's some info from Dr Mercola:
One possible explanation for apple cider vinegar's health benefits is its high concentrations of acetic acid. Like other acids, acetic acid can increase your body's absorption of important minerals from the foods you eat, such as green leafy vegetables.

Read more in this article on what the research really says about apple cider vinegar

the article also cites research suggesting that apple cider vinegar may lower blood glucose levels. Good luck, I hope it or something else can ease the pain of your arthritis.

Sometimes a lot to be said for mind over matter and placebo.

Tesco sell it. I use it in cooking. Mrs Musket, a doctor, has had patients ask her about it's effect as an anti inflammatory so she looked up trials. There have been a couple of blinded trials but no evidence to suggest improvement over whatever they used as placebo.

I used to chair the local NHS body with an office next door to Arthritis Research UK HQ in Chesterfield and we had good links with them. They do have good information for people suffering from arthritis. I suggest you browse their website.

One thing I can say.. Many GPs wish there were alternatives and improvements to how they address it, and if something actually worked, the pharma industry would have dived in by now.....

if the arthritis is causing bone spurs to form, I would suggest trying the combination of glucosamine & chondrotin - easy to find in tablet form... but take it a serving of activated yogurt. Bone is naturally made and absorbed by the body, so having the ingredients for repair at hand, so to speak, has helped me deal with normal wear & tear.

That said, be sure that your cartilage & joints are OK... that means a check up with doctor or chiropractor. being out of alignment will aggravate a problem and sometime steroids help prevent further damage to a joint.

Small doses of vinegar can't hurt... maybe use in a salad dressing so you can get your greens as well.
