Arthritis and cider vinegar-Anyone tried this ?

9 Replies

Bonjour mes amis ( hello my friends ) , I hope that you are all well and that everything is positive for you all.My dear mum is suffering from arthritis quite badly in her hands and arms and of course I would like to see her relieved from this suffering if it is possible to be so.A friend of mine many years ago back in his forties had severe problems getting in and out of his car because he was riddled with arthritis,until at least he by chance spoke with a sports therapist who strongly recommended that he started having cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water every morning. He has been 99 percent better ever since and even now in his seventies he goes off skiing every year and feels great from doing it.I have looked on line and lots of people have had similar positive experiences from this. The entire first page in google is full of good comment and advice,except one scientist saying it is not true.I was wondering if any of you lovely people have had first hand experience with this.Here is the link that is first up on google- look forward to hearing from you and hope that this relief is true and helps any of you that need it as well as my mum.Love and light to you allJamie xx

I started using it for acid reflux last year instead of pills from the doctor and it works very well.

I've taken Apple cider vinegar for years for arthritis in my knees and hands and can totally recommend it.  I no longer need to take the tablets prescribed by my doctor, which is good as they were affecting my liver.  Make sure your Mum uses an organic cider vinegar.  I also take a quarter teaspoon of turmeric, which is also beneficial for lots of things including arthritis.  Turmeric is best taken with freshly ground black pepper.  Google it and you'll be surprised at how good it is.  Hope this helps you and your Mum.  Kind regards.  JC

Tumeric, indian frankinsense and sour cherry are all supposed to help for arthritis. Arthritis research uk scores them highly.  You can get them combined in a daily tablet. Glucosamine did not improve my arthritis but I would also see a G.P as B-Green states.

Thank you kindly for taking the time to reply. I am unfortunately sure that it will not be too long before I will be appreciating your advice for myself as well as my mum does.

I as many of you know have lived a hippyish nomadic life all my adult life and have always gone down the natural remedy route for all my needs and am almost always in very good health. I put this down to keeping the nasty chemical-synthetic medicine intake to a minimum,eating and sleeping well and getting good excercise. It has always been very beneficial to me and I shall always avoid prescription drugs when I can.

I am not by any means a purist and can appreciate that sometimes things need a good strong chemical hit to help sort them out. I personally take Ibruprofen if I get a migraine coming on and it alays stops it. I have heard that acupuncture can help this problem too,but have not gt around to trying it as yet.

Thanks again to you all and thanks in advance to anyone else who comments on this.

Love and light

Jamie xx

My experience has been completely positive. I would recommend using an organic cider vinegar. I took a table-spoon in a cup of hot water with a teaspoon of honey to sweeten daily! it will take  a good 6 weeks usually to feel the benefit... good luck x

Two of my friends have been prescribed methotrexate for arthritis in their hands and fingers over here in the UK and now one of them has anaemia with severe tiredness. Methotrexate is chemotherapy. She has been using it for 5 years.

Hues this worked for me.  Truly recommend it.  Some old wives tales work.
