Most people think of arthritis as a condition that strikes older people, but it can affect people of all ages.
Arthritis causes inflammation of the joints and is typically characterized by joint pain and stiffness that make movement painful and difficult and can affect anyone from young children to seniors.
Although newer treatment options have helped many patients deal more effectively with symptoms, there’s a common household item that seems to work miracles in the treatment of this condition: Apple Cyder Vinegar, or AVC.
Apple cider vinegar has a pain-relieving effect that is beneficial for arthritis sufferers looking for a natural way to find pain relief, and this analgesic effect can be further amplified by combining ACV with other natural foods.
If you’re interested in trying an ACV based treatment for your own arthritis, here are a few recipes to try (Via Healthy and Natural World):
Brew a cup of peppermint or ginger tea, and mix in 1 tablespoon of ACV, 1 teaspoon of honey, and stir in 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Drink this mixture once per day to relieve arthritis pain.
Mix 1 tablespoon of ACV into an 8 oz glass of water and drink it twice a day with food. Although the taste isn’t wonderful, the dilution helps to take some of the “bite” out of the vinegar flavor of this recipe and helps to reduce damage to tooth enamel and prevent burns to the sensitive tissues in your mouth and throat.
Vinegar with tart cherry juice:
Mix a tall glass (8 to 10 oz) of tart cherry juice with 1 tablespoon of ACV and drink it once per day to get the one-two punch against arthritis pain from this synergistic mixture of two of nature’s anti-inflammatory medicines.
Mix olive oil or coconut oil with ACV, using a ratio of 2 parts ACV to 1 part oil. Massage this mixture into the pained joints once or twice each day to reap the analgesic rewards of ACV (and the oils will help the skin in the area to glow, as well). You can also add one of these essential oils to relieve pain and inflammation or make your own dandelion oil for arthritis and joint pain relief.
Vinegar and honey:
The combination of ACV and honey has a number of health benefits and it also works for better joint health and joint pain alleviation—and the flavor is quite nice. Mixing vinegar with honey and diluting them in water is a quick, easy and natural way to battle serious arthritis pain.
Apple Cider Vinegar is also an amazing tonic for keeping yourself healthy and treating ailments ranging from obesity to diabetes, and maintaining healthy heart function.
