Herbal Arthritis Remedies
Day After Disaster Ch 5
Suggested Herbs for Treating Arthritis:
Anti-inflammatory – Solomon’s seal, ginger, turmeric, yerba-monsa
Pain Reliever – white willow, meadow sweet, birch bark, aspen, cayenne pepper, and comfrey.
Fluid retention reducer – black cohosh, nettle tea
How to Prepare It:
This is assuming that the person has no other medical issues.
Take 30-60 drops of tincture 3 times per day. To make the tincture:
Combine Solomon’s seal and white willow in equal parts with red pepper flakes in a ¼ ratio.
Put them in a gar and cover with Vodka (or grain alcohol like Ever-clear) for six weeks to make a tincture.
Make capsules of turmeric or ginger.
Cool or make a tea from nettle. It will assist with inflammation because it is a natural antihistamine.
Other Ways You Can Help Yourself:
Use a topical rub by mixing a combination of – arnica, comfrey, ginger, cayenne, or St. John’s Wart oil.
Let the stinging nettle sting where you are hurting. It has formic acid so after the initial sting it will feel better.
