    This is my third day on Nutra Joint, made by Knox Gelatin. Yesterday was a painful day for me. But today? I actually took all the dogs and the cat for a walk down the block and back up again. My feet are not aching nor swollen. My wrist is not in it's ace bandage so I don't twist it the wrong way. I can make a fist.
    Placebo? Maybe.
    Actually does what it claims? Maybe.
    All I know is it is safe. It does not interfere with other meds (I checked with my pharmacist), and it is cheaper than Knox Gelatin packages you would buy to make jello. Read the link, then google for more info and see for yourself.

    I had to try something, since I refuse to take meds that have worse side effects than the ailment itself. There is no cure for RA, or any arthritis and there are hundreds of different kinds of arthritis. So, home remedies, or suffer. I chose to explore and this is what I found and am now trying.

    I will keep you updated in case anyone else wants to give it a go.

    Gelatin in almost any form does have a positive effect on some forms of arthritis for some people. Both Mr. Foxfyre and myself have some arthritis so we do eat a lot of gelatin. But we both like gelatin salads and. . .well. . . .you gotta have something for dinner anyway. :) But glad to have the information on the Nutra Joint, Grace.

    I am in no way endorsing it, but I have suffered for years with arthritis in both hands that sometimes is a deep painful ache and sometimes causes extremely painful cramping. A couple of years ago Mr. Foxfyre ran across a copper bracelet--really pretty all intertwined with sterling silver with magnets in the two ends--and bought it for me. The lady who made them said it might help. It did. I haven't had any hand cramping since I put it on. My aunt and sister have both since acquired one with good results though not quite as dramatic as mine.

    I know these kinds of things don't help a lot of people and medical science generally views it as quackery at best; voodoo at worst. But it did help me. So whatever works.

    I have been looking for a copper bracelet. I might go browse ebay.
    I've been awakened lately with bad leg cramps in my calves. I had no clue it was the arthritis until just now reading your posts. My hands are not all twisted and deformed,but they sure hurt. My left hip, both ankles, the bones on the top of both feet, both middle toes and the left big toe, lower back, left elbow. Only place is has not hit me hard is my right leg and my knees, but lately it has been inspecting them to see if they would be a new party pad. So far, so good those are free of it. (knock on wood). I wear ace bandages and just ordered some ankle wraps for stability to help when it's in full flare up mode. Maybe I can find a copper anklet or two. Or, make them myself. I hear magnets work too?

    Anyway, the Nutra Joint comes in a big can and a scoop inside. Just add one scoop per day to whatever drink you want to stir it in. Makes it handy. Taste is not the greatest but it's doable.

    Thanks for the tip on the copper. What can it hurt? Not a darn thing.

    I have heard people like Tramadol. I think it depends on the person.

    It's really not *too* bad. it does block the pain signals.
    Just no buzz :D

    One of my cooks told me it throws him for a loop.

    You're right, it just affects different people in different ways
    :cool:
