Rheumatoid arthritis - "natural" pain relief

Post by StroppyChops » Tue Jun 12, 2018 5:06 pm

Serious questions here from a non-partaker.

Does any poster have "a friend" that uses "herbal" relief for the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis? Care to comment on how that works for your friend?

Naturally, I'm asking for a friend, of a friend.

That is a very specific question and it will be hard to find someone who says yes.

Perhaps your friendly friend of a friend could just, you know, try? Medicinal doses of "herb" are much lower than intoxication doses. Your friend of a friend wouldn't feel high, unless wanting to of course. Quarter of a teaspoon of oil on a sandwich would be plenty enough without triggering the side-effects commonly associated with consuming "herb".

Your friend of a friend can get in touch privately if he wants non-judgmental assistance. I'm not a seller but I am a fellow human being...

If you're going to eat it in a sandwich then extract it in butter. Don't burn it but keep it hot for about an hour and then filter out the bits. Cool and spread on sandwich.

Try Arnica. Been around for a long time, effective. I read where it has been referred to as - rub it on, get up and go.

My friend's friend is grateful for the input. He (or she, maybe) wants to know if oil is available in the Kingdom, and what the regulations around that might be?

Stevenjb, is Arnica available and affordable here?

I am in the U.S. peeking in on the conversations, so I would not know the availability of Arnica. If it is available, I would suggest to try it. It is a Homeopathic product.

Ah, okay - thanks. I'd presume probably not, given the scarcity of homeopathic products here (with a few exceptions). Strong regulated medications over the counter - no problem. Glucosamine at a reasonable price - problem.

It appears that Lazada has Arnica products. However it looks quite expensive.
