This increases a lot in winter, so much that walking becomes difficult. It was in control when Fish Oil was consumed, but now it is back.

What do you guys take for your arthritis & knee pain, apart from regular allopathy medicines?

Exercise is the only remedy for any joint related problems. Do controlled exercise as advised by physiotherapist. Ayurvedic medicine Shallaki also helps and it is harmless. And there is hot compress.

Amway is good, “very” overpriced though

Tried many brands, but all were 1 year ago. Like St Botanica, Pure Alaska, etc.

This year havent taken any fish oil.

There can be many causes but one of the common cause is higher uric acid levels in body. The easiest remedy to control uric acid is regularly consuming Banana Stems (the white inner part), preferably minced/diced and steamed/boiled along with drinking 4 ltrs of water a day.

Bhai, take some salt and pour it in a cloth. Heat the cloth and apply the cloth on affected area. 🙂 It helps.

When its due to advanced osteo/rheumatoid arthritis pretty much nothing short of opioid-based painkillers will seemingly work in case of acute flare-ups. No other way but to just get through it somehow. Low strength CBD oil also in the former case proved ineffective. Less said about the popular ayurvedic oils etc. the better.

Stop drinking milk and milk derivatives including ghee, butter etc.

Go out in the sun more often. Check your Vitamin D levels.

Does knee cap help in this case?

Also what all tests should the person do? Calcium & Uric Acid? Anything else?

Not in my mother’s case who suffers from Rheumatoid arthritis. In fact it’s not recommended during a flare-up. Occasionally an ice pack helps but at other times it seemingly worsens it. Thinking of trying Castor oil and steam next time. 


I guess it’s Osteo arthritis in your case which has a pretty different treatment process.

Nope, it is Rheumatoid arthritis only. So we are in same boat.

Tests like Calcium, Uric Acid, etc etc help? Maybe Calcium turns out less (or Uric turns out more) and a specific treatment can be planned for that which in turn decreases Rheumatoid Arthritis?

UA test is indicated in case of Gouty arthritis not RA. I remember in the early days when the disease hadn’t been diagnosed as RA yet one doctor had intially mis-diagnosed it as Gout. I hope you have been in contact with a qualified rheumatologist already?

BTW studies show that (moderate) exercise helps quite a bit but as many as 70% of the patients didn’t. Also losing weight in case one is overweight. 


You could give a try with high strength CBD oil. If it has proven somewhat effective in cancer pain I guess arthritis pain should be amenable to it.

Example of CBD oil? Hope it doesnt have side effects.
