Cherry juice - reduces joint pain!

About a month ago I read a book that said that red tart cherries have anti-inflammatory effects and many arthritis suffers drink cherry juice for the pain. I have arthritis in my big toe joint and I have been in severe pain for about 3 years. I have been getting steroid shots in the joint every 6 weeks or so and the dr said the only way to get rid of the pain is to fuse the joint. I'm 34 by the way, and the dr said this is an injury related arthritis. Anyways, I have been drinking 4 to 6 ounces of cherry juice every morning and night or I eat frozen tart cherries. My pain has been greatly reduced to the point of nonexistence on some days. I haven't had to take ibuprophen in about 4 weeks and I have not had a shot since the end of June anymore. I don't know if this has been mentioned on this board before as this is my first time here, but I thought I'd mention this.

Re: Cherry juice - reduces joint pain!

I have never heard of that before, however my RD mentioned cherries and something, dunno. I am not much of a fruit eater so I woudl not know but I guess it is worth a try.

I am on Enbrel but till I find a new RD I have had to ration my meds....not fun!

Let me know how it works!

Re: Cherry juice - reduces joint pain!

you should try stinging the joint. YOU WILL BE AMAZED! Find a local apitherapist or find some honey bees in the garden. The venom dissolves the calcium build up on contact.

Re: Cherry juice - reduces joint pain!

Eat 8 cherries daily is suppose to help gout and this has been used for years. It makes no difference if they are canned, fresh or frozen or the type does not matter either/

A good homeopathic remedy for inflammation gout is Belladonna-- it works in just several doses.

Re: Cherry juice - reduces joint pain!

The grocery store I go to has one kind of cherry juice. But I've seen it on the web too, you can buy it in concentrate. I also eat frozen tart cherries sometimes instead of drinking the juice. It really has done wonders for me. The bee stinging that a previous poster said sounds interesting.

Re: Cherry juice - reduces joint pain!

You can find the canned tart pie cherries in the canned fruit section at the grocery. It works wonders! I heard 20 per day and found it really worked for a long time until the damage to the great toe joint was just too much. Try it! It's a cheap remedy.
