During the middle November 2010 a former co-worker sent me an email about the use of Cinnamon and Honey for different aliments. Well arthritis was one of those aliments listed. I immediately went to Wal-Mart to purchase the honey since I already had a big container of cinnamon on hand. Within one week of taking the honey & cinnamon mixture I begin to notice a drastic reduction in the swelling in my knees. The second week I noticed that my movement was very much improved and I could actually move my legs without agonizing pain. I am continuing to take this mixture and each day I am seeing improvement. I am now able to resume a light exercise regiment and hope to some day get back to the gym.
My arthritis is by no means cured but I am mobile and that means a lot. This remedy may not work for everyone, but I have had much improvement in my condition. After sharing my story I received a lot of feedback from individuals that recommend the Organic Manuka honey which I begin taking and it seems to offer even greater benefits.
Another herb for anti-inflammatory worth trying is ginger, which comes in capsules or tea.
