As some know, I suffer from injury induced arthritis. (Definitely NOT age related.) On the recommendation of my medical consultant I started consuming Tumeric. The improvement is noticeable. I also passed along the recommendation to a coworker who uses a cane due to arthritis in knee. After a week she no longer uses cane. Pain is not eliminated but it takes the edge off.
Apparently this is a well known treatment in some Asian cultures. Try it! Bub recommended.
