Maud.. it is working you have to mix 1 teaspoon of clear honey dissovoled in hot water then add 1 desert spoon of cider vinegar and stir.. it tasts like hot lemsip with the the lemon.. keep off citrus fruits/foods and foods with critic acid in. and dairy products they aggrevate it.. eat chicken, turkey all fish and shell fish and lamb or veal only.. no other red meats or old meat..stay away from tomotoes at all times. and sugar it all acid that builds up and makes it worse.. use wholemeal flour and bread and i use "pure" butters they are good and skimmed milk or oat milk.. lovely with porridge.. which is also very good.
i take cod livery oil and omega 3. and vitamin c as not citrus allowed..
the book i got told about by my specialist is called "treating arthritis the drug free way" by Margaret Hills.. new edition out august htis year. she suffered and was near crippled by 36 years old and told never dance or cycle again.. she did this progarmme inthe books for 12 motnhs and has not looked back since..it has some meal menus in there.. must take calcium supplement to replace lack of dairy. arthritis is caused by diet.. to much acid in the body.. so have to remove it..
do epsom slat baths or soaks.. these are very good.. do my hands in in for 15 mins in as hot as you can stand water and one cupful of the salts.. stretch and nbend the fingers etc for 15 mins.. then wrap in warm towel for 5 mins. do same for feet.. the bath is for whole body one bath hot water and 4 cupfuls of epsom salts.. for 20 mins.. get into a warm bed do not get cold.. do this 3 tims a week.. it is so good..
at first i thought so much hard work.. but it is sooo worht it to be in less pain..
