Arthritis & herbs

With more talk about aging I'd like to share my experience with arthritis. I'm 70 years old & started feeling it about 5 years ago. Research led me to anti-inflammatory herbs & I'm more flexible again. I have a morning smoothie concoction using a banana as the thickener. Avocado also works. If you use both you make mud. I add one teaspoon of each herb that I have on hand. They include turmeric, cayenne pepper, black pepper, paprika, sage, cinnamon, & ginger. Any herb that is an anti-inflammatory works. Frozen Pineapple juice & water is the preferred juice for inflammation but other juices are also good to add. You can also add greens. It's like making glass, play with it. I buy the herbs from a bulk food store which is much cheaper than buying capsules. All these herbs are good anti-oxidants so you're getting other health benefits. One friend tried this but it upset her stomach. It took MONTHS for me to feel the results so you have to be patient. I hope this helps some of you.

Turmeric is great for reducing inflammation.

I use dried powder herbs for my blender smoothie. Sometimes I chew on ginger root or cinnamon sticks slowly like someone would chew tobacco.

Here's what I've been taking for about the last six months: link to Amazon product details

$20+ every two months is a reasonable price (I think). The directions say to take it with food because some people experience stomach upset. Poking-around online I've found sources that say taking it on an empty stomach is better for absorption. I take it at night before I go to bed along with my other cadre of pills and inhalers. It doesn't seem to bother my stomach. I am pleased with the results thus far.

Ice down after repetitive stresses. It stops inflammation. Inflammation is at the root of most cancers. I believe it's fundamental and that popular folk type remedies are not a substitute for basics that any really good therapist would suggest.
I was given a series of exercises to do daily . The therapists simply said that people get their work confused with exercise. He said I needed a more complete view of insults like work. I had no shots, no dietary supplements, just simply stretches to be done daily.

Exercise is something that has become non-existent for me the last couple of years. Before buying our house we lived close enough to downtown to walk. I was averaging 3-9 miles a week. Not stunning, but better than totally sedentary. You have to drive to get anywhere where we live now, and I've put on over five pounds since then. I'll find out tomorrow if I've gained more, and see if my cholesterol has shot up again.

Last May I tagged-along with my wife to attend a talk she was invited to give at the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. I met her senior colleague that extended the invitation. He's in his 70's, and it comes up in conversation that he's been a candidate for knee replacement for years. Keeps putting it off because he doesn't want to go through procedure. Says he heard about studies of low rates of certain types of inflammation in southern Asia, and that there's a possible link to turmeric in the Indian diet. He then tells us he's been using it for a while now, and the pain is almost non-existent. Gives us the specific brand information (said it's the one that he swears by). I thought "what the hell, I'll try it. I like curry." This guy is very intelligent, and well-educated. Not someone likely to get suckered-in.

Well, I tried it, and I'm sold.

One of the chronic problems I have had my entire life are the effects of flat feet. The first time (of three) I dislocated by right knee I was referred to a specialist. I was seventeen at the time. The podiatrist told me flat out "there's nothing you can do about this. It's just the way you're built." I have extreme pronation on both sides. This causes my kneecaps to be pushed out at an angle. The joint is thus weaker, and more susceptible to failure. Exercise can make everything more sturdy, but it can't take away the joint pain I experience (my ankles have always bothered me). I have buy shoes with good arch support, and/or buy arch support insoles. The point is is that I have always just lived with the pain in my ankles. It was always there, and I was told it was just something I have to live with.

Since starting the turmeric my ankle pain has virtually disappeared. Likewise, my knees aren't bothering me much either. These are things that doctors, PT's, and other professionals have told me there was nothing I could do about it.

So, for whatever it's worth, that's my story. I know there's a lot of snake oil flowing around out there. I'm not going to go out and start drinking mud in the hopes of detoxing heavy metals from my body. But this seems to work for me. I've seen the effects of acupuncture as well, and science still can't explain that.

I supposedly had one of the best knee surgeons in the U.s. replace my left knee...about 2 yrs after that I thought about sawing the right leg off myself (DIY TKR). ....
ó-but I didnít do it.ó-Instead, my wife started making me cannabis cookies and drinking 3to4 fingers of bourbon and soaking for30-40 minutes in the hot tub. I donít know if this has helped with the pain or if Im just high enough not to care.

Enjoy your youth!
Once you hit your mid 70s all sorts of things can and will go wrong. I've seen my contacts list on my phone diminish in the last 6 months by about 20%. Very healthy people just wake up dead. Your genetics will play a much stronger part on your health than you will realize.

John Nickerson put it better:

Death is mother nature's way of telling you to slow down.

I'm in the mode that you don't put anything of importance off waiting for a better time.

well, I don't respond to sales people offering lifetime guarantees.
I always ask, "What have you got in a ten year warranty?"
