I looked up arthritis in my "Natural Remidies Encyclopedia" and well, the listing for arthritis is pretty long.

Under "diet" it suggests that you drink 1-2 glasses daily of any combination fo raw juices of beets carrots, celery, parsley, or alfalfa.

Eat leafy vegetables, whole grains, oatmeal, and brown rice. These supply vitamin K.

Eat fresh pineapple. Apparently the bromelain in it is good for reducing inflammation.

You can use ice packs to reduce inflammation and be sure to exercise you joints so that they dont stiffen

mix eucalyptus oil with water and rub on the affected area. wrap the joint in plastic wrap, and apply moist heat with hot towels.

HOPE THIS HELPS!
