      "herbal remedies" --- People say marijuana helps the pain go away. People even smoke it to cut down the pain of lung cancer, other cancers and other pain-causing illnesses.
  • Some of these may have an effect - Eat plenty of onions and garlic (sorry!). Raw oats eaten with apple and yogurt can ease joint pain. Turmeric works for arthritis - add plenty to food. Alternatively, drink warm milk with a tsp of turmeric in it three times a day. Drink a tsp of cider vinegar, plus honey in a mug of hot water first thing in the morning (this worked like a dream for me). Or the juice of a lemon in hot water with honey. Nettle tea works too. Peppers contain a chemical called capsaicin, which is known to help a body control pain somewhat. Hope these help.
  • I have osteo arthritis in my hands and REALLY BAD in my knees. I have taken Celebrex and have had cortisone and Synvisc injected into my knees. I found a product that allowed me to get off Celebrex and actually works much better. It is a glucosamine/chondroitin complex and is in a very pure form, and IT works !! If you want you can read more about it at Hope this helps. Good luck : ) ....and NO !! This isn't a plug for any company, and I don't get anything for recommending it. It just really has helped me. Note : If you do try it, get the capsule form. It's MUCH easier to take.

It recommends massaging the affected area with gingelly (sesame) oil in the night provides relief from joint pain. The herbs useful are dried ginger powder, garlic and asafetida. We have to understand that these measures do not work overnight but continuous treatment can definitely alleviate the trouble

  • There's a pain relief product made from willow tree bark that's been used since at least Hippocrates' day. On top of working for pain, it's recently been noted to have some protective effects against heart disease and stroke. Have you heard of aspirin?
  • Well, chili peppers and the such are supposed to be good, as well as arnica. I had a sudden onset of gout the other day (which was odd), and I kept on a poultice of plantain tea, which really helped, so maybe that would work with other kinds of joint pain as well.

Myself, I was diagnosed with arthritis 10 years ago and noticed that sleeping with air on my arms outside the covers hurt badly. I began sleeping in a down sleeping bag and have not had any pain at all in my joints since then. I think this works because it keeps the body at an even temperature during the time when you are most vulnerable to temperature changes...Whatever....I feel that it has basically, saved my life!

  • White Willow Bark 1. White willow bark is a plant native to Asia and Europe. The bark of the white willow tree contains salicin, a precursor of aspirin. It works by reducing the production of pain-causing chemicals called prostaglandins, which can cause inflammation in the joints and elsewhere. According to, white willow bark is as effective as aspirin at treating certain types of pain, often with a lower risk of side effects like stomach bleeding. White willow may be taken in capsule form or as a tincture, powder or decoction. To make tea using white willow, simply add one to two grams of bark to seven ounces of water and boil for 10 minutes. Cayenne 2. Cayenne is a pepper from the nightshade family. When applied topically to painful joints, cayenne causes an irritant effect, thereby distracting from pain and desensitizing the neurons responsible for sending pain signals to the brain. The active compound in cayenne is capsaicin, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties when taken internally. To make a topical salve using cayenne, simply sprinkle two heaping tablespoons of cayenne powder into 10 tablespoons of a carrier, such as lard, lotion or cocoa butter. Apply directly to joints for temporary relief. Ginger 3. Ginger is a tuber with anti-inflammatory properties. It contains a number of active alkaloids, among them shogaols and gingerols. When applied topically, ginger causes a warming sensation that helps ease pain by improving circulation to the affected area. Ginger can be taken in supplement form, added to food or brewed into tea for its anti-inflammatory effects. According to, the daily recommended dose for treating rheumatoid or osteoarthritis pain is 500 to 1,000 milligrams. Cherry Juice and Extract 4. Cherry is a commonly eaten fruit from the Prunus genus. The active alkaloids in cherries---anthrocyanadins---work by reducing inflammation in muscles and joints. In addition, the high antioxidant content of cherries can help lower bodily levels of nitric oxide, a compound that may contribute to arthritis pain. While cherries make a healthy snack, their active compounds must be concentrated in order to obtain medicinal benefits. Cherry juice and supplements containing cherry extract are generally recommended over the whole fruit for treating joint pain caused by arthritis. Warning 5. Herbs can change the way certain drugs affect the body, so talk to your doctor before trying a new herbal product if you take medication. Joint pain can sometimes signal a more severe condition. If you experience joint pain that comes on suddenly or is accompanied by symptoms such as fever or rash, seek medical attention to avoid potentially serious outcomes.
  • without getting into herbs etc ,, that you are most likely not able to find at the ready ---- i suggest you reasearch gin soaked white rasins .many people swear by it .. good luck ;-)
  • Glucosamine for dogs. Sounds weird but way better than regular human kind. Advice from a doc.

  • turnneric is supposed to be a good one
    • Linda Joy
      Turmeric is good. I've felt less pain when using it. I bought capsules and I did notice a difference.
  • Medical Marijuana if you are of age.
  • There is a lot of advice here, but, ultimately, it depends on what is causing the joint pain. If you treat the cause, rather than the symptom, you will experience a much better outcome.
  • Turmeric did bring me some relief, but I also noticed my pain is worse when I take in more sugar. I love sugar, so it was hard to admit and even harder to cut back, but I'm also flirting with diabetes going back and forth. But like bostjan said it depends on what causes it. For some its related to diet. And people are sensitive to different things. For some its gluten, for some, corn, for others, sugar, alcohol, etc. And still for others it may be a cyst has grown on the ovary causing back pain. For some its repetitive movement. I have certain pains that get worse when I'm trying to meat a deadline on a crochet project. I've obsessed on various exercises that ended up hurting me in one place or another. And like someone else said there are entire books written on the subject but you just have to experiment and sometimes journaling helps to identify patterns but it can be work intensive sometimes. Keep in mind what works for someone else might not be what works for you.
  • People should understand the role of water in the body. The body is made up of around 75% water on average - for a reason. It's because every function in the body is tied to water. Where joint pain and arthritis is concerned, water is the body's lubricant just as oil lubricates the moving parts in a car. [] Salt is also vital in this respect. People are led to believe that calcium is the substance that gives the bones their hardness - but it's actually salt. Around 37% of the bones are made of salt. The salt crystals intertwine with the calcium to give the bones their hardness. [] Whenever the body loses water it also loses salt. When a function somewhere in the body requires salt (such as muscle movements of hydrolysis - the generating of energy) and there isn't enough salt available, the needed salt will be taken from the bones. Over time, the 5th lumbar vertebrate becomes unable to support the upper half of the body and the familiar "stoop" of osteoarthritis begins. Arthritis in the joints happens when there is not enough water to keep the cartilage in the joints lubricated. They make contact as they move and often deteriorate from the friction. Drinking water will help relieve the pain.
  • One effective herbal remedy is white willow. This herb contains natural aspirin. I would think it would be an effective natural treatment for virtually any painful condition. Please note no herb is safe for anyone allergic to it, or pregnant , nursing women or anyone below 3 years old. Plus I would check with one's doctor to be safe.
  • Rose Hips
  • Joint pain is usually caused by arthritis. The best thing for arthritis is Glucosamine Chondroitin. Orange juice has more Glucosamine Chondroitin in it than the store supplement, just make sure it's fresh squeezed rather than concentrated.
